Mysterious death

10 April 2014

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!

Not recommended

12 January 2014

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

Wish I'd seen your review before my purchase. Same thing for me. Bought a pair of apparently healthy Bourkes Saturday one mysteriously dead by Wednesday. Lucky I quarantined them.

I have been there a few times, and they have been very helpful EXCEPT once when i bought a cat, my cat poo'd in the box whilst i was paying, i asked for a clean box and they laughed at the poo like kids and said it will be fine, so by the time i got my cat home their was poo all over his paws. I have bought a cat and 2 budgies from their mainly because we felt sorry for them, too many budgies in 1 cage so they looked a bit battered and there was 3 cats in 1 small hot glass tank but also the litter tray was in there too, the poors kittens had no room to move unless they walked through their own litter. My conclusion - Staff can be ok, alot cheaper than most places, but seriously need restructure the place for the animals to live better.

Bad petshop

01 November 2012

Well in one tank they have 9 boa constrictors, The leopard geckos are in a horrible condition, The birds feathers were ruffled, Some had bald patches and has scratches all over them, And kittens in small closed off hot tanks, And that was just today, Before when i have been there there was a dead leopard gecko in a tank and all the animals had mites and the customer servies at the plac is horrible, Like one time i heard a lady saying to these people just to feed their toirtes a ready mixed bag of veggies from Tesco! That is a COMPLETE no go! This place needs to be shut down, As well as all animals being in horrid conditions as you can tell they give out completely the wrong advice! I'd party seeing this place being shut down it is horrid!

Bird Lady

08 August 2012

The lady that catches the birds out the back "Avery Area" need to be placed on a customer care "skills course",she treats customers with NO respect at all. I will not shop there ever again.

Lovely & Friendly

03 April 2012

I do not understand what people are complaining about, I've been a customer there for many years and very rarely had a bad experience with Wiltons. Maybe some customers had a one off and seem to think service will be bad every time they visit. But me personally I think the staff are friendly, approachable and very helpful when asked. They usually have what I want but if they don't they have given me their phone number to check if it is in stock before I go there. I do not see how anyone can complain about them. A very customer friendly company.
