I've had a terminal falling out with Pets at Home They used to be really good for getting birdie food, accessories etc but have really gone downhill of late. They now no longer sell Pretty Bird food (as recommended by the avian vet! for my little monsters) for any size of bird. When I asked why not, I was told that people didn't buy it. I'm sure I wasn't the only person buying it as the shelves were frequently half empty and they were always having to reorder.
I've found a helpful online source but I'd rather support local shops and of course I've got to wait for the order to be delivered which means that the budgies are having to live on Trill for the next few days. Not a good idea - according to the vet, that's the equivalent of giving them Big Macs every day
The maddening thing is that there aren't any other really local pet shops. There's the one where I bought Sioni but that's just a pet shop tagged on to a garden centre. The farmers' co-ops have some pet supplies but they're very limited. Once Pets at Home opened, the local pet shops started losing custom as they couldn't compete with the cheaper prices and convenient parking
I'm probably better sticking to online suppliers but I can't dash out for something when i realise that their food supply is running low. I have to be more organised - a very unnatural state for me
boo to unco-operative petshops
yes I did come back relatively unscathed, thanks
just been playing wii tennis with Big Sis
The online supplier was much more co-operative. I ordered a perch to replace the one Branwen wrecked and they emailed me back almost immediately to say that that particular perch was out of stock and did I want another item or a refund. (You had to pay with the order) I told them that if they had another 18 inch wooden perch suitable for budgies then I'd take that, otherwise a refund and got an immediate reply apologising for the lack of perches of the required size and saying that a refund was no problem.
It restored my faith in pet shops to some extent.
That's a pain Parddu, I have similar probs trying to find affordable quality hay for Fiver.
Did you win Yeo?
