I on 9-25-10 bought a baby rat for a pet from this store. It was so small, but the blonde lady reassured me the rat was old enough, and eating food. I saw a Teddy Bear hamster with fur missing, and wondered if it could have mites or something. I asked the lady if they have a mite problem, she said no. So, I also wanted some food, and the food she offered from the bulk food, and it was full of moths. I said no, I don't need a moth problem in my house. So, she offered me a sealed bag of Oxbow at $12.99. The rat was only $3.00. I thought, well ok, at least it won't have moths. The store was about to close and I didn't read the food bag. The food ends up being for rats 4 months and older. I go to Petco to buy food, and find out the rat is about 3-4 weeks old. I was told they should not leave the mother until they are at least 6 weeks old. Now I have to buy puppy formula to supplement the diet, and hope the rat lives. I get home and get out my magnifing glasses, and the baby rat has loads of lice eggs/nits on its body! I saw little dots on the skin, which turns out to probably be mites. I found live small brown bugs, which are the lice. So, then I had to buy Ivermectin, and another product called Pyrethrin. To treat both problems. I wasn't going to keep the rat, I wanted to return it, but now I don't have the heart to. So, after spending a bunch of money on what was suppose to be an inexpensive pet, word to the wise buyer beware! The store smells to high heaven, and the pets are kept in quite dirty conditions. I should have known better! I also had to buy another rat food from Petco this time. I suggest buying from reputable breeders, not pet stores. Most pet stores in my experience have not been to great for anything other than supplies. Since, I was originally going to return the rat, when the weekend was over, my husband and I found a great breeder in Belleview. We bought two healthy rats. Like I said, by Monday I have already spent all this money, and I really don't have the heart to return the baby. So, now I own a small colony LOL.

Not many pet stores do Science Diet, mainly vets, this store however does science diet. Although seemingly un-profesional when entering or leaving, overall very friendly. Nice selection of tropical fish, exotic pets a little lacking, a few snakes and lizards. A pleasant experience never-the-less.

The Inverness Exotic Pet Center offers the best selection of pet needs in the county. This was the only place that carried the type of food I needed for my Hermit crabs.
They also offer many helpful items to help you care for your pets,everything from food, vitamins, toys, carriers.
The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend you check them out for you pet needs.
