I was very displeased with this store. I went there three times to try to buy a hamster. Not once did anyone help me.

The first time I went I waited 25 minutes for help at the rodent section, then I went over to the lady at the desk, and asked for help. She gave me a bit of an attitude and then paged for someone to help. I waited yet again another 10 minutes and just walked out.

Their stuff is extremely over-priced too. The hamster bedding there was $4 and some amount of change, but I went to Stop and Shop and Pet Supplies plus and found it for half the price! I calculated what I would have spent at Petco for a whole hamster set and it was about $25 dollars more than what I spent between Stop and Shop and Pet Supplies Plus!

I wouldn't suggest going to Petco.

About eight years ago, I bought a 5-month-old guinea pig for my 8 year old daughter. Apparently, the female pig had been kept with male guinea pigs and it turned out she was pregnant. \r\n\r\nWe didn't realize that she was pregnant until the first pup was born -- still-born. I took the mother guinea pig to my vet that morning, and after checking her the vet came back and told me that there were 3 more pups inside her and that she was too young/small to deliver them. She had to be put down. How do you explain that to an eight-year-old child?!?\r\n\r\nI haven't been back to PetCo since.

Cons: Unknowledgable Staff!

I would not come to PETCO for anything. I have a pet gecko that eats crickets. When I went to PETCO to get some, it took about a half an hour. Then I tried going to Pet Supplies across the street and it took about 5 minutes. I bought a hamster from PETCO, and it died in a week. I brought it back and they gave me a refund and I went to Pet Supplies to get a new hamster. I talked to someone who worked there who used to work at PETCO, but he quit because he didn't like it. They never play whith the animals, unless you ask to hold one which they reluctantly let you hold one. They take poor care of the animals. They also don't inform you at all about the animal. When I bought the new hamster from Pet Supplies, they told me if you see the hamsters tail or anywhere around it getting wet, bring it back immediately, because that means it has Wet Tail Disease. That is what my hamster had, but nobody informed me of this at PETCO. I brought my dog to get groomed and he got rashes all over that took a long time to go away. To conclude I would not recomend PETCO to my worst enemy.
