I’ll tell you why Brick and Mortar are DOOMED!

Today I went looking for a good quality ear wash for my dog.

I did research online. Many, MANY dog forums recommend Zymox or EpiOptic by Virbac.

Can I find it? NO! You know why? Because PetCo only carries their own brand and a bunch of unknown brands that are probably crap as I’ve never heard of them and they weren’t mentioned online EVER. So I got to PetSmart and they only have ONE, not Zymox or Virbac and they were OUT.

So I’m going online and I’m buying it from AMAZON. In the meantime, I’ll flush his ears with a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and lukewarm water.

FUCK PetCo (who just bought out Pet People so I couldn’t go there anymore either) and PetSmart. This is the result of big corporations pushing out the little Mom and Pop local stores. If PetPeople was there, I’d try there. But the small stores are being driven out of business by the likes of PetCo and PetSmart and then they only stock their private labels and crap brands that are worse. And we the consumers end up with very little to choose from. What happened to protections from monopolies?

If you want to get the BEST for your dog, you have to order it online.

So let the Brick and Mortar stores scream about losing business to the internet. As far as I’m concerned, they can all go bankrupt and it won’t bother me a bit. They don’t carry what I want, why should I pay them any money for what I don’t want?
