Petco

I needed some supplies, okay not really but every now and again I like to stop by Petco for something random- NO OTHER PETS but I always take a look around. The beardies were so cute but sad. Poop were on them- some big and some were small in the same enclosure. I mean it was more than the beardies in these conditions but the amount of lizards in 1 tank was so disappointing. The tanks were dirty...

The beardies were active because they ran to the front of the tank so that's a good thing but know prior to the picture, they were stacked. There was a second tank with less beadies but the tank was equally dirty.

I read on here often about people calling corporate and I think it's my turn because this just didn't sit well with me.

There were only young adult employees present in the store and only one employee who was truly invested in the goldfish...I mean really invested! That was it.
I wanted to rescue all of the beardies.

In general, I am about 2 seconds from wanting another one but I know I can't manage 2 enclosures and Rocky already runs me but I don't like what I saw.

It is hard to see. I always tell myself they won't be there long. Unfortunately beardies are extremely popular as such unscrupulous businesses cash in on them. I cringe to think how their breeders are treated.

Wait so people are buying them quickly ONLY to breed?

No no i was meaning the breeders petco and petsmart use to keep themselves supplied. (Notice i didn't capitalize pertco/smart? I don't think they deserve to be considered proper lol)

As far as i know they basically have a beardie mill, just like you hear about puppy and kitten mills.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
