PETCO NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THE PET GROOMING BUSINESS -- YOU CAN'T JUSTIFY ANOTHER DEATH!!!!

Another dog DEAD in the hands of a PetCo groomer?  The last one was one too many, and PetCo obviously had NOT done enough to prevent this from happening again.  The ONLY way to guarantee no more beloved pets will DIE at a PetCo groomer's is to ELIMINATE THE GROOMING BUSINESS FOR GOOD!  I feel VERY STRONGLY about this, and doubt that I would want to continue supporting PetCo if DRASTIC measures are not taken.  This dog was not my dog, yet I feel terrible hearing about its death.  Just imagine how the "parents" feel!

 

Does anyone else feel the same????

What happened to the poor pooch?  Are you sure the death was a result of the grooming completely? Unless the groomer drowned the dog on purpose or something, perhaps Poochie had a prior medical condition and then, unfortunately, went Toes Up during the grooming? How awful either way, poor baby.......you didn't give any details but I am so sorry to hear about that person's loss.....Man LOLH
