owner knowledge/ store in general 12/2/2006

I know the owner of this store. I know much more about small animals and birds than she and I do not own a store!! In addition, she sells baby birds UNWEANED -- a HUGE no-no, if you know anything about birds! (In fact, she sold an unweaned bird to a mutual friend who had no prior experience with baby birds. She showed her how to handfeed and gave her the feeding formula and one feeding syringe. The formula was old or bad (rancid). She didn't tell the girl how to properly clean and disinfect the syringe between feedings, to use a fresh batch of formula for each feeding and to be sure to only feed it if the formula was between a certain temperature range, measured with a thermometer!! Tragically, the baby died of an infection before the girl really knew it was ill! Also, the store itself is sparse. It contains few supplies. There are a few supplies for a lot of different areas - dogs, cats, fish, small animals, birds. I would definitely NOT RECOMMEND this store to anyone. If you are in a pinch for guinea pig bedding or something, maybe, but otherwise go elsewhere. There are plenty of large and small stores that are much more knowledgeable and have a better supply of equipment for sale. more
