Awful pet store
posted 6 years ago
I will never shop at this store again. First of all, it is filthy. The prices are higher than elsewhere in the area as well.
But, most importantly, they sell live animals at this store and the animals do not appear to be well cared for at all.
A couple of years ago, I bought my son a hampster there. The poor thing got ill after only 2 weeks. I took it back to the store because I didn't know what was wrong... I'd never had a hamster before. The guy at the store took him out of his little carrier and his exact words to me were...
"UGH... this thing has wet tail... he's gonna die. You want another hamster?"
The hamster then tried to climb out of his hand and he dropped the poor animal on the floor! I was so shocked at his behavior, I asked to see a manager. She came over and thank goodness, had more common sense and compassion than the other big lug. I asked if the hamster could be treated and what to do. She said he'd have to be quarrantined and treated with meds and offered to keep him at the store and get him treated. She told me to call in a few days and she'd let me know how he was doing. In the mean time, she said we could pick another hamster. I told her I didn't want another one (didn't trust that it wouldnt' be sick too).
When I called back, I was told he had died.
At the time, I didn't know much about hamsters or how serious this wet tail was or I would never have left him there. I would have taken him to my own vet.
In any case, this whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth and I have not been back since and don't plan on going back to this store.
Cons: Dirty, staff is unfriendly and not knowledgable, prices are higher than other stores in the area, animals for sale are not well cared for
