Larisa Solomon / AKC poodle breeder -Troy Ohio
We purchased an 5 month old puppy from Larisa Solomon in Troy OH on 12/29/16. We took our puppy to be vet checked on 12/31/16 just 2 days after purchase. He was behind on his vaccines, infested with fleas, tapeworms, and substantially underweight. We paid 800.00 for a puppy whom we thought was coming from a reputable AKC breeder. I spoke with Larisa on the phone and via text message several times before making the 3 1/2 hr drive. Upon arriving at her house we found dirty substandard living conditions for the dogs inside the home. There was a strong odor of urine, feces on the floor and several dogs of varying ages ( at least 10 dogs in the home) There were 3 puppies from the litter my dog came from, a litter of 8 week old puppies and a pregnant female that we know of. I have had 2 vet visits as of now for worming, vaccines and flea control. We still have 3 more vet visits scheduled to catch him up on all vaccinations and to recheck a wheeze the vet detected on his first exam. When I contacted Larisa to notify her of our puppies condition, her only response was to return the dog for a refund. At that point we had already incurred a substantial vet bill and under no circumstances would we return him to those horrendous conditions. Please be aware and cautious of this woman as she is not providing proper general care and preventative care for her dogs. I must also add that according to the records she gave us upon possession our puppy had only been vet checked once by her vet at 3 days old and she states she does all her own vaccines and worming. The records are questionable at best.
These are not my feelings, they are the facts. Our puppy had only 1 vet check at 3 days old, was in need of rabies vaccine, leptosporosis, and booster shot. This was all determined based on the records/ registration packet Ms Solomon GAVE us! As for the deworming, the Panacur she was " giving" was improperly administered as the manufacturer instructions clearly state give 3 days consecutively. According to her OWN records this was only done correctly twice- at 2 weeks and 4 weeks. It's no wonder our poor puppy was infested with tapeworms which by the way is caused from FLEAS which he was also infested with. I have all supporting vet documentation to prove every one of my statements. As for horrendous conditions- the house was dirty, smelled of urine and I watched as 2 of the adult dogs urinated on the rug we were standing on. If you have nothing better to do than question my vets expertise, check them out- Animal Clinic Northview- they have an impeccable reputation. We initially wanted a rescue dog and now feel inevitably we did. We love him and are happy we can provide the proper care he deserves.
