The store has been open for a few months now with new owners. Much less dry stock than before. No one spoke to me the first time I went in. 1 guy said "Hello" 2nd visit but nothing more. Dead fish in tank. Nearly all tanks hold fish incorrectly labeled/priced. Only finch food they sell is loaded with dyes and chemicals.

Terrible place! I am a fellow pet store owner. I was vacationing in the keys. We have our collection license and planned on catching some fish and shipping back for our tank at home. We ran into a snag and needed some oxygen for a few of the bags we were shipping back. We called this pet store and the girl said we could have some. Once we toted all of our fish there the owner said we could not have any oxygen. He also said the fish we caught were illegal (they were not, we triple checked before we bagged and shipped back) after he said they were illegal we even triple checked again with the issuer of our license. He then proceeded to get very rude and tell my boyfriend and his friends to get the f*ck out of his shop. Frantic my boyfriend left and tripped and dropped his tote of fish and lost a few. He was embarrassed and devastated. If the owner didn't want to give us oxygen that was fine. He could have just declined professionally. Not the way he did. We spend thousands of dollars in fish frequently but will never return to this business.
Tips & Advices
Pet owners usually sign a waiver stating that any injury or illness a dog suffers while at daycare is the responsibility of the owner. However, most facilities carry liability insurance and pet business insurance in the event of a serious incident. To prevent illness, facilities are strict about requiring proof of vaccination and general health from a veterinarian prior to accepting a dog. However, in an off-leash setting, scuffles or fights might occur. Reputable facilities will often hire vet assistants who can treat minor injuries and under-the-weather dogs.  For anything more serious, a good daycare should make it a priority to get the dog to a vet, and get in immediate contact with the owner.
