My little man is in the vet. When we got him, he appeared fine, and then I noticed black poops with undigested seed and very, very watery yellow outside. I took him back to the pet shop I got him from where there was an avian vet.
Then, said petshop decided to blame ME for starving my boy, since his belly was empty. I WATCHED him eat ravenously and drink, it just passed undigested. So, theyre blaming me for starving him, when he was ill when I got him, (i've only had him 5 days)
I'm so angry, and hes at the vets over the weekend. I hope he makes it, but I'm mad because they're not keeping me updated.
So, I'm asking that you members keep Tokyo in your prayers, and I'm reporting that pet shop forr keeping Ill animals
Thank you and pray for us <3
Akela I am sorry that this is happening to Tokyo.. You both are in my prayer's and we send you our love. This is why i buy my budgie from a good breeder... I really hope that Tokyo recovers from his illness. Indigo is holding Tokyo under his wing to give him a huge hug and we really do hope Tokyo gets better soon..
The attitude and lack of understanding the pet -shop have displayed is clearly showing how little they regard who they employ to take care of the birds. I hope an apology is offered though I fear not, you did the right thing in reporting them.
I hope your little Tokyo finds the strength and courage to fight this, please stay positive and don't blame yourself. for future reference have a first aid box ready.
Akela, it's disgusting that the pet shop blamed you for poor little Tokyo's illness. I'm very pleased you reported them.
When I got Jimmy, he had a bad case of mites, visibly so, and rather than speak to the pet shop staff there, I emailed them so I could speak to someone who likely is the owner of the store (they have a lot of staff on for such a small shop).
They offered to cover the cost of the treatment for Jimmy (it's such a small amount, that I wasn't worried about that, I wanted to make sure the birds were healthy).
Since I let them know, every time I go in, I always look at their birds to check them for mites and have never seen another case since then, so I do believe it did some good.
