I don't even know of another place in the city that sells the live feeder animals I need for my snake, and even the feeder animals are well cared for, when I asked my mom to pick up a rat for me they even offered to kill it for me (which is a huge help seeing how squeamish my mom is!). They are always so pleasant to have a conversation about anything with and I enjoy spending a few extra minutes in there chatting with the staff! Even when I bring my toddler in they interact with him and are very family friendly and always have been! I've been going here for rodents and reptiles since I was 12 and I don't plan to stop!

Parma Pets is a throw back to when I was a kid. They opened around 1965, always specializing in exotic pets.
I bought a skunk from them many many years ago. Now they have tons of reptiles and certainly the key reptile shop in NE Ohio. No they don't have miles of supplies like the big stores, but it is rare that a privately owned store can. They will special order stuff, and give customer service better than any shop with teenie boppers regurgitation google information.

It's old, could use a face lift for sure. But if you want a real reptile / exotic shop with amazing animals you will not see else where,, this is the shop to go to.

If you want a sterile shop with kids giving you poor care information go elsewhere.

The old guy is hilarious when you get to know him. The new tall guy knows a lot too. I do miss the big guy they had there a few days. He was a blast to talk to, but he could talk all day too . That was a good thing, as he was a wealth of knowledge.

Bottom line a great shop.

The place is small but, its not commercialized like most of the other pet stores. The people the work there are very friendly. The prices are great. This is a "No Frills" pet shop. You need it, they've got it. From hamsters, rats to exotic snakes and lizards. Great place.

This place is the only pet store in northeast Ohio that carries the supplies I need for my lizard. I have never seen it look dirty or disgusting like Kim says. It's not the kind of store that's full of caged puppies, it's where to go for all kinds of pets' needs.

Parma pets is a great little shop I've been doing business there for many years, they are very knowledgeable about exotics and the common pets , very well priced and courteous,. Kim doesn't have a clue.

Parma Pets is one of the oldest pet stores in Parma. This store has been around for almost 40 years. They must be doing something right to last that long.

I've read a comment on here that the store is dirty but anytime we've been in there, that is not the case. It's usually fairly well stocked, but not always. The staff will be there to help you if you need it. One thing they do carry besides pet and pet toys are T-Shirt for people. I know our son likes the ones about spiders and such. I haven't seen them anywhere else except Parma Pets and no others who stop in there for those sort of T-Shirts from far away.

Parma Pets carries the special food that our dog requires at a great price as well.

I have bought 5 lizards from here. The owner himself has helped me wiuth my pregnant bearded dragon. They give you great deals on all pets. The store is one of the cleaner pet stores that I go to. There is one store called adriatic pet store, they told me to use sand or walnut shell for a bedding for lizards. they have no commom sense. but at parma pets they told me to stay away from and type of shell or sand becuase it cannot pass through the lizards system.
