Nothing surprises me about P@H anymore.

I worked there about 6 years ago when I was 16 and used to go home crying about things that happened there.

Most pet shops can never guarentee the sex as it is just people like me (not qualified in anything to do with animals) that have to sex them when they come into the store.

Pippa and Willow will be two in January and Pixel is almost one :)

It'll be a shame if they've et their standards slip here :( I've always been impressed with this store, how knowledgable staff are and how the animals always seem to have everything they need.

Will keep an eye on them at Middlebrook, as we only live up the road :)

Ditto - nothing surprises me either about Pets At Home. The threads on here are endless…

I can't believe that they would keep mixed animals? Every p@h I have been in has had 2 seperate pens? I know they have a sign to state please double check the sex but I couldn't imagine they would keep them all together?

They can be bad, they can be good. I think people should have a short training course when working there on all bloodi animals... bad bad. :)

I know rabbits can be quite hard to sex, but piggies aren't that difficult imo so they should be able to guarantee their sexes. Then again a lot of them are in mixed cages before they arrive at the stores so still no guarantee you won't end up with a pregnant sow.

The vet struggled with mine lol, the rescue I got him from couldn't guarantee for me so I took him to the vet (for his myxi too) and he took ages to tell.

I've heard that bucks can hide their bits too lol
