I will check that out. It just angers me that people can get away with stuff like this. It's 2008 for heaven's sake! I am going to get on their website and see if I can get them to respond to me and let me know when they will be in TN.

Just a note to everyone, I don't know about Pepto, but Kaopectate is NOT safe to give to sugar gliders anymore. They changed their formula a couple of years back and it now contains aspirin...under no circumstances should it be used. thumb

Isnt what they're doing technically practicing veterinary medicine without a license? I mean, they're not vets, who are they to diagnose and give out remedies??

I don't know if it would be categorized as practicing veterinary medicine without a license because it is an over the counter medicine, BUT I'm sure it falls under them suggesting to use kaopectate and pepto against the directions on the bottle. You know, "Use only as directed." It may be under veterinary medicine, though. You'd probably have to ask a lawyer.

Well, they're saying you don't need a vet and yet they're diagnosing and prescribing medication for Giardia whether it's over the counter meds or not I don't think they have any business treating an animal for Giardia or otherwise.

I know how they could fix that problem though..you know, sell HEALTHY joeys.....nahhhhh that'll never happen.

Im in TN too and one of my babies is a "rescue" from someone who bought from them ((PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets). they sold about 300 joeys (prob underage) and they were about $400 each. this included a cage that is too small, a heating rock, and pellet food tant
if there is any way we can get them shut down, let me know b/c id be more than happy to try and help.
Next time they are in TN we need to get alot of glider owners together and have a booth next to them telling the truth about gliders. Or just try to keep them from coming back at all

Well the problem is that they can afford to do way more than we can. At our show this weekend alone the booths were over $900 for the weekend. BUT you should get the person you got your rescue baby from to write up their experience and why they ended up rehoming their glider, etc., so we can add it to our documentation. It's really important to note how many people buy on impulse and then put them up for adoption. We hear of so many, but there are probably triple that amount who never even show up on the boards.

could we not just make posters and stand outside the booth or outside the building, warning people and telling them the truth. i wouldn't mind standing in front of the booth and everytime someone walks up i would just tell them about what they are really doing.

you can't do that. You can't go to their booth. You can buy a booth at the same flea market.

Or you can stand outside the flea market - but it has to be a certain distance from the door.

the thing is, they don't do flea markets. if they are going to be anywhere, they are going to be at big shows and conventions and at malls and stuff. they tell everyone not to buy thir gliders at flea markets, so if they are at a mall or something, we could just act like we are interested, stand in the back of the crowd, and tell people that are coming up what they are doing and that they are just trying to rip them off, that they lie about the gliders just to make money.
