I shop instore with pets at home all the time. We have 4 dogs, 2 frogs and turtle so we buy quite a lot of pet products. Having shopped in store with them, naturally when pets at home launched their website a couple of years ago, I had a good look through their website to see what they sold. I have to say that their ... Read the complete review

The pets at home website is ok, but they should include all of the cages, only some of them are featured and it is rather frustrating, I was looking for a rat cage, and couldnt find one on their website, but i found the perfect one instore that wasn't featured online, But it is not a bad website, but i suggest you look instore before ...

i own 3 cats and fish. although pets at home provide fantastic ranges for cats dogs etc there live stock is not cared for at all. i bought numerous fish from pets at home. not only have they died but they have passed disease on to my already established fish and also killed them. the help you recieve from staff is shocking and they dont no what they are doing. i also had a friend who bought a 6 week old rabbit from them and was told that it would be fine to put straight into an outside hutch, needless to say the next morning the rabbit was dead. the vet told her that taking a baby rabbit from the warmth of a shop it has known since birth to a hutch will kill it. PAH need some serious livestock lessons its plain cruelty.

I have worked in the past in a pets at home store, and they did try to pass on basic knowledge of pet care, but frankly the information on the whole is wrong, and the pay is so bad that the information that is right is not remebered by many staff as they just dont care. On the otherhand you dont go to Tesco and expect to be ... Read the complete review

I don't rate them very well at all, as others seem to aggree the staff do not seem very experienced as regards the pets. I bought what was supposed to be a male rat to pair up with a female, only to find out it was female. On phoning the store was told there was nothing they could do, not even an appology. This is terrrible as you are not supposed to put two females together that have not been brought up together, and I couldn't return her to the shop as my son had already got very attached.I would not suggest to anyone buying a pet to go there, go to a smaller pet shop who care about there pets or even breed there own.

Pets at home is rubbish - I agree with another reviewer. My local branch often ha dead fish floating in the tanks and worse still half eaten ones. No I know enough about fish to realise they are Piscivores and do eat other fish - but it is not nice to see when you are there with little children. I have seen an unwell hamster who was ...

Here is what I wrote to the RSPCA: Hi, I have a concern about animals, and in my experience Guinea Pigs in the Bradford Pets at Home store. Here is my story: I spotted a guinea pig- (being myself and my family, pet guinea pig owners for many years and also currently doing Rodentology courses), who was very ill. I informed the ...
