This shop has a very good selection of products but the quality of care of the livestock is appalling. They have a huge selection of reptiles including some quite unusual species but not a single water bowl was clean- all in fact were soiled with faeces. Many of the reptiles were in enclosures far too small for them, over crowded, or mixed with different species. The vivariums were also full of old feeces and shed skin- really disgusting. There was also an obvious snake mite infestation clearly visible on two of the albino pythons in one enclosure. Some of the animals were in poor health- underweight, poor shedding or dehydrated skin condition and some were in inappropriate enclosure (not just too small) for their species requirements. None of the bords had substrate in their cages, large rabbits were overstocked in glass display cages of the sort hamsters are usually displayed in, with piles of faeces and urine, with no hay to eat or space to move around. Parrots and corvids with no toys or stimulation, in tiny cages with filthy water bowls. On top of all that, a lot of staff were present, so it's not like they don't have time to clean the animals. The staff were not friendly at all, either. This place hardly sets a good example to would be pet keepers about how animals should be looked after.

I found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable and have bought some nice birds with no problems, the shop has a very large range of stock and have things I could not get elsewhere, and all at very reasonable prices.

Lousy ignorant staff , can only bother to serve you when they've finished chatting, or texting and even then it's an effort . Sour faced birds and I don't mean the feathered kind

Mysterious death

more than 6 months ago

Wish I'd found this review site prior to my purchase. Bought a pair of Bourkes on Saturday only to have one mysteriously die on Wednesday. When I phoned the man said how unusual - according to other reviews apparently this is not the case!

Advice to anyone buying birds from Wilton pets DO NOT BUY ANY BIRDS FROM THIS PLACE, RSPCA need to investigate into the conditions of the birds and health of these birds also the breeders need investigating I have brought four birds from this place and everyone I have had has landed up passing away suddenly for no reason and the others because of ill health/disease one was due to inbreeding confirmed by a vet, Doesn't matter if you check the bird for poor health etc as we found out. I have brought birds from other places and I have not had one problem they have been healthy, happy birds and still remain healthy, But the birds we brought from here I have lost due to disease's and passed suddenly within less then 6 months. As a bird love we pride over the love and care of our animals when they come here they become our children. We did not return our birds to Wilton pets for refund as we feel its unfair and distressing for the bird and for us, so they remained with us where we could properly care for them, we tried to give them the best happy health life we could until there time had come. One bird yes but still shouldn't happen but 3 more from the same place NO! Something very wrong. I would not recommend this place to anyone
