Baby Beardie had a horrible accident, what can I do to comfort it? Today is the first day i've ever brought it home. also it doesn't seem to want to eat despite the doctor saying it is anorexic. She gave me some nutri-food that I would have to force feed it but I don't want the beardie to think something bad is going to happen everytime it sees me.
Back Story of What Happened
I try not to buy anything from pet-stores because I don't support their milling of animals. The only time I go is to buy crickets and today I saw baby bearded dragon's trying to eat one of their cage-mates.
I told the employee what was happening and they removed the aggressive Beardie but left the injured one with the other cage-mates. It's tail was ripped off. I asked him if he had a corporate vet or someone in the store and he said no. They were just being aggressive because they only eat at night and haven't been fed yet. He was just going to put it in the back room so its tail could "grow back"
I told him i've owned bearded dragon's for 6 years and they can't grow their tails back and they do not eat in the night time! They only eat in the day!! no one is going to buy a bearded dragon with a ripped off limb!
I knew if they took the beardie into the back room it would of died. So I demanded they give it to me and I would take it to the hospital. He called the manager and decided to sell me the beardie at 20% off. When I checked out at the register the cashier looked at what happened to the beardie and said "ugh" but then just kept gossiping with her co-worker. Horrible horrible store. I don't even want to buy crickets from them anymore.
