Review for Baja Animal Sanctuary, San Diego, CA, USA
I adopted a German Shepard puppy from Baja Animal Sanctuary. After searching for 2 months for just the right puppy for a play mate for my 2 yr old Rottie. After bring the puppy home on Sat. I gave her a drink of water and took her out to the back yard so she could go poddy. As soon as I had put her down she went pee the let loose with the runniest smelliest poop I had ever seen. Now I knew I was getting her so I had already made a vet appointment with my vet For Monday morning. For a puppy check. She had diarrhea Sat and Sunday. After letting my vet know where she came from and the Oder of the diarrhea. My vet needed a sample and feared Giardia. I took the puppy home and by 2pm had the sample for my vet. The results were back by morning at the vet. In the mean time late Monday night my 2 yr old Rottie starting having the same smelly diarrhea. He was very healthy. Up to date on all his shot. All his yearly examams. No problems with him. By morning when the vet called to tell me it was Giardia. Both dogs were fully infected. It's now Tuesday morning. So I am back at the vet with both dogs. Getting educated by my vet about picking up the running diarrhea right away. And wiping there butts and paws. I wore rubber gloves. I washed there bowls there toys in bleach. Thursday night I start getting pain in my adamond like I was passing a kiddey stone. That is what I thought it was having gone threw that 2 yrs prior. Low and behold I also had Giardia. Of course I am keeping the puppy. The dogs stools r not completely hard but r harder. I am in $700.00 in vet bills and I am still not done there they both have to go back in a week for more test. And $300.00 for my medical. Plus the $200.00 I spent to purchase the puppy. My vet said they knew this puppy was sick and had diarrhea. Sure they do wonderful things by taking in strays. But to be that desparet to pass off sick dogs to people. Is unexcusable.
