  • Groomer Speaks Up About Neglect Groomers See (pictures)

    LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - Animal neglect is a serious issue that is becoming more common than people realize and the number of cases happening in Laredo are concerning local organizations.

    A local pet groomer says the reason for these cases is the lack of education among the public, especially pet owners.

    A recent case of animal neglect involved a dog with matted fur who had been in a kennel her whole life.

    The puppy, Bo Derek now has a new owner after she was taken away from her previous owner who neglected her.

    Just a year ago, Bo Derek had lived in a kennel her whole life.

    Local pet groomer Alma Zepeda sees over 100 cases of animal neglect from maggots, to matted fur.

    By owning a pet you are taking on a responsibility to care for it, which means keeping up with his or her health and in failure to do so could result in animal neglect.

    After removing the fur from Bo Derek's body, it weighed a total of eight pounds filled with filth...............
