  4. Animal Palace in WPB shaved my American Eskimo Toy without permission

    Attention All New Members
    I actually requested they trim an inch off her coat and they shaved her down to the bare skin. When I went to pick up my Eskie, the owner Joyce stated she tried to use a 5 blade (in lieu of scissors) and kept getting streaks.

When I got him at 2 months old I was feeding him Iams Large Breed Puppy, but at about 7 months old he began having diarrhea and, even though housebroken, would go on the floor.
