Two dogs miss treated while in the care of Four Foot Lodge to the point one of them came back from there poisoned
Hi my Name is Marcus Kinsman i Payed for my two doges Rosco and Dodge to be put in the care of Four Foot Lodge address 1216 Westbank rd Motueka i had to go to my Grandmothers funeral down south .They were there for three days i got them delivered back to me when i got back .They both looked as if they had not been feed in the three days and smelt so bad it was not funny they were skin and bone! i was not happy Dodge was not him self, but he is always a bit funny when i go away when i get back .But he was off his food i left it a few day and was going to take him to the vet but he ran away for over a week he was found in a farmer shed . i took him vet in Motueka were he was miss treated by one off the younger vets as in she tried to pick him of the floor by his lead then hooked her hand in his ribs like a handle to get him off the ground i was not happy and demanded the head vet. but carmed down cos i was there to find out what was wrong with Dodge they did tests and said he had a sodium based poison in him but wanted to do further test for cancer???? i said no hes been poisoned he ha-sent got cancer .The vet showed me a DOC map off the areas they were using this poison it a restricted posion and it was being used on all the boundrays off Four Foot Lodge and no where near where i lived or where dodge had been . i asked what could be done for him he said its bad but they will take him in at a cost over night . i worked night shift and went there at 4am in the morning and there was no one there my dog had been left by him self over night and he was not in a good way at all, i rang them as soon as they were open in the morning and said i was coming to get him they said i had to wait till 1100 am / I drove down there straight away and got him he had lost control off hes balder by this time and was cover in wee, i asked the vet again what are his chances he said there is a chance he may make it so i took him home on a drip after the first day he was not good i rang anther vet and went and saw her the next day she done tests again to confirm what the other vet had said . when she got the tests back she said i had to put him down straight away he was dieing all his organs were shutting down it was cruel to keep him alive so i did what was right .Hardest thing i have ever had to do put my best friend down!!! i rang the owner off Four Foot lodge and told her what had happened she didnt even say sorry for my lose, she was straight away on the defense no way that happen here let alone the dogs not been feed nor keeping them clean told me she was not giving me my money back and recons she looked after the dogs, she is a lier!!!! i left it a while then went to the SPCA it looked hopeful but come back to me and said they could do nothing! and not long a go i was put in contact with council candidate that happens to be the head off the SPCA was hopeful again off something happening but came back to me saying i had to get other people that have complaints against Four Foot Lodge before doing anything . so to night i went on face book asking for help and some one put on here so i really hope you can help so this doesn't happen to someone eles i have all the records from the vet, Thanks for your time Marcus
