Wild Bird Food Cheaper at Independant Local Store

We wondered why we keep selling out of dried mealworms and other wild bird food so we had a look about. We couldn’t believe the prices other shops are charging. PAH are charging over twice as much as us for 500g bags of dried mealworms! How a large company like that, with much better buying power than little old us can justify it is beyond me. Anyway, here are some examples of price comparisons. Please note; these are not special offers or discounted lines, just our regular prices.

Dried Mealworms 100g Angell Pets £1.79 PAH £3.50 RSPB £3.99 Country Wide £3.99

Dried Mealworms 500g Angell Pest £7.49 PAH £15.50 RSPB £13.99

Wild Bird Seed 20kg Angell Pest £12.99 Jolleys £14.99 PAH £14.00 (We also bag it up into 1kg bags for 99p each)

Peanuts 1kg Angell Pest £2.49 PAH £4.25 RSPB £4.44 Country Wide £3.25

Sunflower Seed Black 1kg Angell Pets £1.75

Sunflower Hearts 20kg Angell Pets £32.99 (£1.65/kg) Jolleys £39.99 (£2.00/kg). We also sell 1kg bags for £1.99

Nyger seed 1kg Angell Pets £2.19 PAH £3.50 Country Wide £3.99

Fat balls no net 6 pack Angell Pets £1.29 PAH £2.00

Suet Pellets 550g Angell Pets £1.99 Jolleys £2.50 PAH £3.00

Not quite sure why anyone would drive all the way out to these facelss chainstores when you can get it cheaper in an independant local shop, the power of multi million pound advertising campaigns I suppose and I guess there is the reason for the hicked prices.

Angell Pets April Offers

Now we are back in a permanent base we have relaunched our wholesaler’s monthly offers scheme. We are cheaper than Pets at Home and Jolleys for most things anyway but these offers beat on line suppliers too. If you add on the savings you get with our customer loyalty scheme (effectively an additional 2.5% off everything you have bought) it make our prices even more attractive. With FREE car parking and friendly, knowledgable service, why go anywhere else? Don’t forget, if we don’t have what you normally buy in stock we can probably get it. We are a small, independant business and that means we can be extremely flexible with what we stock.

As a bonus for April, we have launched these offers early and they are avaiable in store and on line from today.

Trialled at Angell Pets

Here at Angell Pets we are always looking at ways of helping the environment and helping fellow local businesses wtih new ideas. We were pleased to trial out a new product that was presented to us by a local recycling company, although when it was presented we were still closed for the recent relocation and refurbishment. Since then we have trialled the product with our own animals in store and are happy to report excellent results.

The product is going to be branded as “Nest” bedding. Actually it is so new that the brand name is not finalised but I am asssured this is the front runner. For the time being we are selling it under our own Angell Pets ® brand.

angell pets rat bedding

As part of the teabag manufacturing process, a lot of offcut teabag paper is produced, prior to the final teabag pressing and cutting. This paper is very soft and absorbant and has not been treated with any chemicals (or used in teabag testing, so it is not stained with tannins). A local recycling company has the contract for disposing of this waste and was looking for a novel solution. This is when they approached us for our advice on its suitability as an animal bedding. We thought it a good idea and after investigating the contents agreed to give it a try. We have since used all the material we were given for the trial and it has been a resounding success.

Not only is the product a safe animal bedding, suitable for all small mammals, including rats as it is dust free and absorbant but as it is untreated it is readilly compostable. Not only will you be giving your pet an excellent product but you will be helping to prevent this material ending up in landfil and supporting local businesses. Also it is available in larger bags than contemporary products making it much more cost effective. We are selling 1kg bags for £3.59, compared to the nearest product available, Safebed which is £1.09 for approx 90g or £12.11 per kg! It even compares well with other substrate products used for rats, with their sensitive respiratory tracts.

Ferrets 2017

The first litter of ferret kits this year was born on 24th of April. Allowing seven weeks for growth and weaning and a few days to collect them from the breeding centre and we will have them available for sale in the shop from 24th June.

ferret kits

Previous seasons kits

We have been breeding ferrets for a long time (50 years in my case!) and due to our reputation for quality and customer service, we know we will sell all of this years kits quite quickly. We already have quite a long waiting list for this years litters.

Ferrets will be sold on a first come first served basis (don’t worry if you are on our list, you will get first refusal) and we will not be reserving any until we have them in the shop. This is so the new owners get to see the kits before making a decision to buy and we can satisfy ourselves that you know how you are going to look after them. Also by then we will have had enough time to be sure that all the kits are fit and healthy.

If you have already contacted us to ask about ferrets and left your number we will contact you as soon as we are in a position to confirm we have what you are looking for.

Other colours

Please do not call and ask what gender or colour the ferrets are at the moment. We will not even go into the nest until after three weeks (any earlier and the mother could be induced to kill the litter). From that age they will start to be handled and the colours will start coming through and obviously we can check the gender. Until then all I can say is that some have been born, so it is a waste of everyone’s time to call us and ask questions that cannot be answered. We will contact you as soon as we know.

Giardia In Ferrets

Last week we unfortunately had a serious issue with some of our breeding ferrets, Fatso, The Cow and The Little One – that’s just what they have become known as, what can I say? I just thought I would do a blog so anyone else keeping ferrets can recognise the symptoms and it will hopefully help them get prompt treatment.

The main infection turned out to be Giardia. Giardia is a protozoan parasite that can infect the gut of most mammals. The symptoms are quite severe and include violent and often bloody diarrhoea, excessive gas and bloating, painful stomach and abdominal cramps and nausea. The infection also causes the villi in the gut (microscopic “finger” projections that significantly increase the surface area of the nutrient absorbing gut lining) leading to poor nutrient uptake and lactose intolerance (although that’s not relevant in our case as ferrets should not be fed milk anyway). Without treatment of the symptoms, after infection and recovery, the parasite can remain in the gut and the animal can become a carrier. Some symptoms, such as lactose intolerance, can persist.

The symptoms of Giardia infection are quite severe and as we found out last week, can have a very sudden onset. I went out to our ferret compound on Saturday to feed and water them and to check on their bedding status as they have a tendency to empty it out all over the exercise area and they were fine; trying to escape as I refreshed the food as usual, tucking into it straight away etc. On Sunday they were still asleep when I went out in the morning (not unusual) so I didn’t see them. On Monday Albert went to clean them out and it was like a scene from a horror film. Three very sick ferrets, out in the open, barely able to lift their heads (one was better than the others but even she was obviously in a bad way) and covered in blood and faeces and only barely able to drag themselves along without the use of their back legs. When I saw them I honestly thought I was going to lose all three.

Albert cleaned them up and gave them a bath (they were filthy) and dried them and I booked them straight into the vets. A sample was taken from each of them, they received rehydration treatment (intravenously) and an immediate course of antibiotics was started as a precaution, whilst we waited for the test results. I brought them to the shop, to keep a closer eye on them in our isolation area upstairs. The first day they were not capable of eating or drinking (no energy at all) and again I thought they would not make it (I later found out the vet thought the same). The only upside was that it was easy to administer an oral medicine to them that, I subsequently found out, they really did not like.

The next day the vet called me with preliminary results. They had two gut infections Clostridium (a bacterial infection, often carried in low numbers in the gut with no symptoms) and Giardia. The vet supposed the Clostridium to be secondary to the Giardia infection. Luckily I was able to report that the antibiotics had begun to work almost straight away and there was a marked improvement (although they were still very ill). They were at least now drinking unaided. We suspect this was due to the reduction in Clostridium numbers from the anti biotics. The vet prescribed an alternative medication (metronidazole) now that we knew Giadia was involved and this was started immediately.

giardia in ferrets

Fatso, still feeling sorry for himself but recovering well

They have been receiving treatment for a week now and have pretty much fully recovered. We have to complete the course for another week. After another fortnight we will take a stool sample and have it tested. If Giardia is still present then it’s another two week course of treatment. I hope this is not necessary because they don’t like the taste of the medicine and now they are back to their normal selves it’s  difficult to administer (I am covered in splashes of medicine as I type, where they have all shaken their heads to try to spit it out ).

Of course, an important factor with Giardia is that it infects humans as well (zoonotic). Hygiene and bio security is very important at all times whilst keeping any animal but particularly when they are sick. We always wash our hands and F10 everything (including our clothing) every time we handle them. I have had salmonella (which has similar symptoms) and I don’t want to go through something like that again.

This just leaves how they caught the infection in the first place. Our ferrets are well looked after and kept very clean. I have had these ones for a few years without any issues so it is unlikely one of them was a carrier. The likely culprit is probably either a mouse (we have had them come in the garden after wild bird seed) or a rat (not seen one of these around the garden before but it is a possibility). I am afraid if little Jerry or Roland is the culprit, he is going to get his just desserts. The thought of one (or both) of the dogs getting explosive, bloody diarrhoea just does not bear thinking about!

Christmas period orders

The run up to Christmas has begun in earnest and customers are getting their orders in to carry them over the holiday period.

We are getting extremely busy with our FREE local delivery service to Gloucester, Cheltenham and Painswick and will only get busier this week and next. With a few days out for the holidays it means we are cramming more and more deliveries into fewer days.

To avoid disappointment (and running out of pet food over the holidays) please get your orders in as soon as possible. To add to the urgency, some of our suppliers have restricted deliveries to us over Christmas and New Year so the chance of us running out of some of our lines is increased. Nearly all have added at least a day to their lead time to us already and that’s on top of existing days off.

We currently have some space on each nights deliveries but it is getting tight on the more popular nights (Mondays and Fridays) so please book as early as you can.

Here’s a link to our normal delivery schedule and our Christmas opening hours and delivery schedule as a reminder.
