Ok, most of you know that I have an insider at a Pet Smart. I help her try to find homes for the critters they have up for adoption since they sit in a back room and don't get acknowledged by the customers unless the employees say something to a customer or unless a customer asks if they have anything up for adoption. I don't agree with that tactic but if thats the way they want to do it..... Now I'm not going to go to far into detail about everything that happened, because I don't want to get her in trouble, but I have to get this off my chest in a place with people I respect. I was trying to help her find a home for an adorable guinea pig that has brain damage from a severe inner ear infection. She has the most incredible personality I have ever come across for a guinea pig (she changed my mind about them). Anyway, we had been looking for a home for her for about a month and a half with little success and only one person that was even remotely interested but that fell through as well. So after one of the other adoptions we did with another pet went horrible wrong (I now trust no one), my rabbit died in my arms two days before that and my foster sister was adopted 4 days before that (it was a good thing but sad for me), I needed some comfort. I had my sis get her and I just couldn't put her back. Before I knew it I was signing the papers to take her home. I never learn. Well after getting her home and starting to get used to her walk and lack of balance things started going crazy. Two days later she stopped eating and I had to rush her to the vet. He said she had a severe head tilt (ear infection) and even after cleaning her ear he could not see down the canal. I had a lovely vet bill, which comes with the territory but still, and had to give her meds for quite some time. She is still off balance and walks in circles but I think the severity of her condition could have been reduced greatly if they would have taken a little bit better care of her and all had done their job. I'm sorry I just needed to vent but I think this is ridiculous. I hope things change greatly at Pet Smarts because no animal should have to go through anything like what Tegan had to. Every store has their secrets so I shouldn't just attack Pet Smart but this was unfair for her and me. At least now I know she has a good home.
