Putney dog grooming parlour cleared over puppy death
A dog grooming parlour has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the death of a puppy.
For the Love Of Dog, in Lower Richmond Road, Putney, were investigated by the RSPCA after a young puppy died in March this year.
The investigation was launched after cocker spaniel Toby, aged five months, was taken to the parlour to have his nails clipped.
He collapsed at the parlour and his owner, Jonathan Curran, 39, of Bendemeer Road, Putney, rushed him to the vets where he was diagnosed with fluid on his lungs.
Medication briefly improved his condition but just before midnight the five-month-old pup was dead.
An investigation launched by the RSPCA was concluded last month with the organisation finding the parlour was innocent of any wrongdoing.
Gaynor Jackson, managing director of the parlour, said she believes Toby suffered from a stress induced attack common in very young dogs.
She said: “We know that we had not done anything to harm the puppy at all, that was the outcome we were expecting.
“It was nice to have it officially confirmed – put an end to speculation. It is now trying to get business back on track.
“I left a much higher paying career to do this because I love dogs, and that's why it is absurd, anyone who works here wouldn’t do anything to harm dogs.”
