Gosh, that's not good at all. Can you write/email their head office to complain?

Re: Gobsmacked at Pets at Home


Thats not very good at all, I agree with Hali, complaining to the head office is a good idea.

What a careless manager as well though, for telling the girl to put it back on the shelf while you were still there. I know he shouldn't be putting it back on the shelf at all, but what a brainless fool!

That is really shocking. I'm a bit miffed about the Naturediet being smelly (even though they sent me replacements) because I'd heard it was really good.

I'd be like you - I would've been too shocked to say anything.

Last time I contacted thier head office was because there was a dead budgie on the floor and lots more very sick ones in the aviary bit and they were selling them.
Head office got back to me and said they had spoken to them but I was obviously mistaken as no birds had been sick according to the manager and the store took a lot of pride in its care of the animals.
So if they are like that with creatures with feelings I don't think I will get far in proving what they have done with the food.
I wish I had discreetly marked each pack now, although they were so busy it could all well have been sold again by now.

That's disgusting I'd contact head office, if it was me.

Postal address: Pets at Home Ltd
Epsom Ave

I can't find the head office e-mail address though.

I was so shocked I couldn't open my mouth to say anything. (very unlike me I know).
Its really bugging me now that they are will to sell it on again rather than return it to ND for a refund.
The other thing that has gone through my mind, what if I was some horrible sick twisted person and had injected each carton while I had it with something to kill or make dogs very sick.
I really can't believe they do this. Now I feel awful as some other poor unsuspecting person will come along and buy it.
E,mail head office, and complain!!!!

Sadly this is typical of the world we live in now, so easy for the manager to deny anything and no way that Head Office can prove anything (Other than by secret visits and that would have to be on the day you were in there)

On the food thing I suppose it's possible some dogs would eat it but from what you said I know ours wouldn't

Still he could have waited until you'd left the shop before putting it back on the shelf

As for returning it to the suppler, well that would mean writing a letter, packing it up, paying for it to be returned, explaining to Head Office why it was returned, etc. all far too much effort for the modern day wanna be 'executive'
