    Angry Another Gerber baby

    My neighbor brought me this poor girl, who belongs to a friend of hers. Friend was afraid it was turning mean because it's mouth is always hanging open like it's going to bite. She's been feeding it peach baby food, just like Petsmart told her to.

    I took her to the vet for a calcium injection, and have her on calcium glubionate until (if ever) she can eat on her own. I think I may scream!

    OMG that poor girl! "Mean"??

    I so hope that the calcium helps. Did the vet say he thinks that jaw issue may correct itself? It looks broken or dislocated or... something!

    So here is a true story.

    I work at Petsmart.

    I feed our crested geckos Repashy and they eat dusted crickets once (maybe twice) a week.

    I take care of them as if they were my own.

    For all of you that "hate Petsmart" know that not EVERYONE is a complete moron & I actually work hard to keep all the animals in my department healthy and safe.

    He said it's possible, but not likely. He didn't think it was broken. When he moved it back into place, she was able to hold it for a short time, but he said it felt very rubbery. She's keeping down small amounts of CGD, and she can move her tongue a bit to drink when I hold her, but she can't eat or lick her eyes. She gets her eyes misted every few hours. If she doesn't show signs of improvement, I will have to have her euthanized. She has no quality of life right now, doesn't hardly move.

    Oh that sounds horrible!

    Doesn't sound like her chances are good.

    I'm glad she's in your capable hands now, though. I'm sure she has the best chances possible with you.

    You should send a picture to petsmart they have no idea what they are causing by taking people to feed baby food. They ned to get repashy back on their shelves.

    Very sorry that she's in such bad shape. I'm glad you took her in.

    Unfortunately, you work for one store out of hundreds. Just remember that we know you are a person, and you are not the store you work for. People aren't hating on you. They are hating the policies that damage so many animals.
