PETCO defendant in case of dog’s missing ear

Sacramento Bee - Two dog-owners have filed a suit against the grooming department of PETCO in Kaneohe. They allege that groomers at the store tried to glue a dog's ear back on after it was cut off.

Gladys Kapuwai claims Dodo, her dog, was returned to her with a "dried, bloody" ear. When the plaintiff later took dog to be looked at, the veterinarian said "it looked like they tried to glue it back."

The complaint also lists Michael Green, who said his dog's nails were cut so short they were bleeding, and the tip of his tail was gone. "They offered another free grooming," said Green. "I guess they wanted to take off more body parts."

More owners have come forward with similar stories in light of the suit being filed. Vanessa Knapp said her dog's testicles were bleeding after a trip to PETCO. Two more women claim their dogs came home with cuts on their faces.
