I JUST READ Stu Bykofsky's series about the mounting problems at PACCA.

I rescued a dog from the shelter recently, and, as soon as I brought him home, I noticed he was terribly ill. He was unable to keep any food or water down and was extremely lethargic.

I was so concerned that, after a few days, I took him to a vet for fear that he was dying. He had mites under the skin and a severe case of pneumonia that likely started as untreated kennel cough.

I ended up spending more than $1,000 to save my handsome dog. I'm outraged that PACCA didn't even utter a word to inform me that he was having health problems. That should be mandatory.
