council?
but tbh other than buying them there isn't much you can do within a week, they clearly need vet attention so i would TELL him rather than inform him, they need a vet asap and hopfully his errors may become more apparent and his caring side may come out and get them help.

Oh sweetie sadly these things happen I have saved a few reps from shops that do things like this. Best to be straight to the point with the owner of the shop I dont understand why any reputable shop should have alot of ill dragons out the back maybe they should re-assess there knowledge of them. R.S.P.C.A probably wont be all that bothered which is very sad.

Its not nice seeing things like that hun its nice to hear you gonna try do something about it as suggested try calling the council see what they say. x

honest if you should see this poor leo.the guy thinks he seems to think he knows about reptiles but im sorry if he knew he would know to remove the ill one from the healthy one not keep it and im sure the mother dont relise its its baby o im so mad this is not just one but 2 different lizards that are thin i didnt say anything about the green lizard as that was in with about 3 others and thought he would prob say o its the one of the babys ill ring the council and see what they say ,if the baby leo has got crypto is there any chance of survival if im allowed to take it as this seem realy unfair

All Councils have animal wardens who should inspect and visit all shops selling livestock.
All shops have to have a licence to sell animals and these can be revoked if they are not doing it properly.

Ring the Council. Hopefully they will help.

I would offer to rescue them, They will probably try and say 'you can buy them if you like' if they do kindly inform them that sick animals can not be sold under the terms and conditions of their petshop licence.

this may sound hard but please do not buy the leo ~
1. if she's that bad regardless if it's crypto or not then chances are she isn't going to make it
2. if it is crypto then chances are she will die ~ crypto isn't something that can be cured and made better
3. if you buy her then unless strict quarentine is in place you stand the very high risk of infecting your other leo's
4. the kindest thing will probably be for a vet to pts
