    Sadly if you visit any store this all becomes very obvious, very quickly anyway. The people who work in my local one, most of them really care about the animals, it must be a real struggle to work there tbh. I bumped into an employee when I had to take Atticus to the vets4pets she was holding a tiny bun that had been bullied and attacked had its ear part off, cuts on its back, didn't look in great shape tbh

    I only use them if I'm desperate for something, I've no other choice where I live. Good on that vet anyway for speaking up.
    IF YOU NEED HELP WITH ANYTHING PLEASE SEND ME A PM OR ANY OF THE OTHER FORUM BUDDIES

    I do wonder if the Vet will remain a Vet after putting her name out there as AFAIK all Vets have to sign a Professional Code of Conduct prior to being Licensed to Practice in the UK. I have a feeling going public about what, let's face it, many people already knew, will mean she says goodbye to her Career. In the UK at least. All for telling the truth.

    It's sad that she would potentially face losing her career for speaking out and trying to actually protect animals, it shouldn't be that way.

    Maybe she wont, but I am not sure many Vets would go about raising such serious Welfare Concerns within a major Pet Retail Company in the way she has. Trouble is PAH are a very wealthy Company and they wont hold back on stamping on any bad publicity using as much as it costs to do so.
