Somebody said this is like the Cleburne Zoo and they're right! Where else can you go to a zoo for free? The kids love it and Angel and her Uncle Donald are willing to explain things to them and I learned a lot too. I never knew rats were great pets better than hamster until we got Joey there. We got our mutt Maxy there too. The only bad part is the stores not as clean as it was a couple years ago I think they're short handed. But still its a pet store so what do you expect? Everything poops!

After my hubby and I lost a beloved rescue mutt of 13 1/2 years that we were, and always will mourn like a member of the family, we saw a little miniature schnauzer pup in the shop in the Cleburne mall. He was healthy, and rowdy, and (still is) a monster in all the typical schnauzer ways, a year and a half later, though I'm happy to report that it's beginning to settle down into a tiny bit more of gentlemanly contentment. Regardless, we love him tons, and we are grateful to the Depot for bringing him into our lives.

I am not a spokesperson for Pet Depot, but here's what happened.

The person who got the chihuahua was not Bob. She paid for it on a Sunday afternoon. She was told it is very important to keep a young puppy on the same food it has been eating. A pet owner can change to a different food gradually, by mixing progressively more of the new food in with the current food. If this isn't done, the puppy can suffer from diarrhea, vomiting, and even death. Diarrhea and diarrhea-related disorders are among the most common causes of death in young puppies

The woman who got the puppy did not buy the food it had been eating. Instead, she or Bob bought a cheaper food. The puppy ate the cheaper food, and started vomiting and had diarrhea.

The problem might still have been fixed if they had acted quickly. Instead, they waited until Saturday evening, almost a week later, to contact Pet Depot and find out what to do! At that point, the chihuahua puppy was nearly dead. They then got some of the food it has been eating and a nutritional supplement. But they waited much too long.

Later, Bob called Pet Depot and said there was a problem with the chihuahua, but refused to speak to the manager or say what the problem was. He said he would only speak to the owner. He was told the owner did not operate the store or handle customer problems because that was the responsibility of the manager. He was advised to speak to the manager, but he refused. He didn't even tell the store's employees or manager that the puppy had died. So there was nothing the store could do, even if it wasn't the fault of the people who bought the puppy.

As for the puppy having parvo, Bob B. changed his comments. Before he changed his statement here, he claimed the puppy had parvo. Now he claims he didn't get the parvo test. His earlier version is posted below--he may not be aware that search engines such as google save earlier versions of web pages. If you want to verify this is an authentic cached version, go to http://74.125.155.132/search?q=cache:Zo-QmSOD4ZAJ:www.insiderpages.com/b/15237944356+pet+depot+cleburne&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us.

And will Bob B. supply the name of the veternarian who said suddenly changing a small young puppy's food isn't important? I'd like to know which vet is giving advice like that so I can avoid him or her.

But as other commenters noted, any puppy that got a parvo vaccine would test positive. That's the nature of a vaccine, which stimulates the body's immune system by introducing dead or extremely weak "germs." A parvo test will indicate positive for two or three weeks after a parvo vaccine is given.

The puppy had been playful and happy at Pet Depot. But the people who got it didn't give it the care the store personnel said it needed, and it died. Whose fault is that?

Here's Bob B.'s comment. According to google.com this " is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on Jun 21, 2009 20:07:20 GMT":

We bought a Chihuahua a week ago from this same Pet Depot and it died of Parvo yesterday. It was the most horrible experience I've ever had to deal with, with a dog.
Even with this said, the store owner refuses to call me back as I've been trying to get my money back. I believe this store knows they are selling dogs with Parvo. The day after we brought her home she started vomiting and did everyday until the last three days in which she vomited multiple times.

Emily is right. Pet Depot or any reputable pet store will give their puppies a parvo shot and that means the puppy will test positive for parvo. I got a pomeranian from them a couple years ago and took it to the vet in five days like they suggested. The vet wouldn't even test for parvo because a test would be meaningless.

The pet store people also told me don't make any sudden food changes. Start the puppy on the same food its been eating. If you want to change food mix the new food in with the old and make the change gradually. If you don't, the dog could get diarrhea, dehydrated, low blood sugar and vomit a lot. You could even lose the dog!

They even wrote down I bought the food in this book because there's no guarantee if you don't.

If Bob bought the food, he's got a case. If he didn't, it's his own fault. My dog's doing great.

martha m. If your dog had parvo it would be dead. Parvo is almost always fatal. If the pet store gave them a shot to stop parvo it would show up positive for like two or three weeks so that's probably why you think it had it. Did they give it a shot?

Every year Pet Depot sells chicks and ducklings for Easter. People buy them cuz they're cute and they're colored red, orange, purple, green, different colors. But then they turn into chickens and ducks and people don't want them.

So we talked to the pet store guy, and asked if they were selling colored chicks and ducks. He said they would. Then we said what happens if people buy them, then later don't want them? He said the store wouldn't take them back.

Then I said, but what happens to them? Don't people just dump them?

Then he told me it wasn't store policy, but there were people there who would take them and give them a home.

I was in the mall like a week later, and a woman was working there. They had the chicks and ducklings so I asked the same thing. She said they were somebody who would take care of them.

So they really do care about the animals!

Update: You buy a puppy for it's life, usually 10 to 20 years, not for seven(7) days. When you are totally unfamiliar with current problems with dogs or puppies you usually go the cheaper route but do what is best for the puppy. Not to kill a dog or puppy but because you maybe conservative. Certainly being Conservative with money is not to kill puppies since we Conservatives do not believe in killing fetus. One is Conservative to save money rather than to give money away frivolously or even begin to think that a person's business to make money is more important than saving your own. You usually listen to people and if they do not put enough emphasis on the purchase of food in particular, you go with something that does not cost so much. Pet Depot wants $20 for a five pound bag of food. My thought in the store was that they wanted to have us purchase more than what the dog needed. Even the licensed veterinarian said it wouldn't matter what the food is.Many who think it is hear say to hear someone who works at the store, after we bought the dog say, "Our puppies have been known to get Parvo after so be careful and watch out for this" Also when you are unfamiliar with current problems with puppies you listen to a licensed veterinarian you take a dog to that does a short Parvo test. The long Parvo test costs $500.00 or more. I chose not to do this test since it would take a few days and the Veterinarian and others we called, said the dog would be dead by that time. Putting the puppy in a hospital costs upwards of $2,000.00 and could end up costing many thousands of dollars up to and more than $10,000.00 depending on how long it takes. I do not have that kind of money to spend on a dog or puppy in that short of time. We spent over $600.00 on the dog in the seven days it lived. We may get $160.00 back from the court case if the store owner does what the judge told him to do. Ask me now if it was worth purchasing a dog from the Pet Depot.

i was very disappointed in the only pet store in this small town. we stopped throught on our way home from vacation and found the store to be very unkept the poor animals were in the windows on towles with dried poop. the smell was horrible people in the halls were complaining. i found a little puppy that i liked so i bought her paid 299 she was unregistared. 3 days later she was sick i took her to the vet in our home town was told she had parvo. i caled the store spoke with a lady who was very rude told me there was no guarentees and hung up on me. i dont understand how they can refuse to warrenty a sick dog that they sold. further investigating showed i wasnt the first and unfourtunatly i probly wont be the last. one thing i do no is i will never go there again i would not recommend it to anyone. that was a very exspensive and heartbreacking lesson.
