I would not recommend shopping there unless you are shopping for dry goods and even then Petsmart has better prices. Their mice and hamsters constantly have wet tail, and they keep the parakeetes in unheated enclosures. The fish department was incredible for the last 2 years. They acquired a marine biologist named James, and this guy really turned things around! They got saltwater and it was very well kept, they hada guy before him named Jimmy who was good as well. They left for the same reason. Petco buys and sells sick, infected, dying fish. The staff knows nothing of coral yet they have a coral tank. I was in there a few weeks ago and their was no salt fish on side. I found out that they had dumped bleach in their system by mistake. This is pure animal abuse and incompetence. As an animal lover I would tell everyone to never buy any fish or small animals from there. The staff usually has no idea and will tell you bad info thinking you no less. The manager is also very young and gets nasty with customers when they try to return their sick animals. They should call them Deathco not Petco!!!

I had been bringing my Lhasa Apso to this shop for two years for grooming. There was a very nice and talented lady who knew her breeds responsible for the grooming there. One day she was gone but I thought I would try the new one. A young, slow speaking woman, I got the impression she would not be as good as the other but gave her benefit of the doubt.. She bathed him the first time.. no problem.. second time, I asked her to cut his hair to a short length.. Fine never had a problem before.. when I returned she had shaved his belly and he developed a terrible rash infection and had to be treated by the vet.. Second problem ..she clipped his entire face and his beard and whiskers were completely gone.. I wanted to cry; it was sad.. she said well you should have given me specific instructions.. wow, she did not know this breed. After 9 months he is almost back to normal but his ears and whiskers are still not fully in.

In general I don't like Petco, but this is one of the better ones that I have been to. The staff at least knows a bit about the products that they carry. They have a good selection of dog food, but their dog bed section was a mess. They had dog and cat beds mixed together and just tossed all over the place. Quite a few of them were missing price tags so I could not figure out the cost of them. I ended up getting the dog food that I wanted, but not a dog bed. Also they had the halter that I was looking for, but the color selection was poor, only green, red and black were available. The check out line was fairly quick . In a pinch, I would shop there again.

PROS: good food selection, fast check out, decent customer service
CONS: poor bedding selection, poor leash and halter selection

This Petco branch on Westwood holds adoptions for dogs and cats every weekend. They also have a wonderful selection of gerbils, hamsters, chinchillas, birds, fish and other small animals. They have a dog and cat treat bar and have a wide variety of cat and dog beds to choose from. I purchased a fancy cat tickler for two dollars that my kitty has been playing with for three months! The staff is very friendly. Overall a pleasant shopping experience for you and Fido.

PROS: allows dogs, adoptions held weekly
CONS:
