You will spend a lot
Yes, that guinea pig or hamster is relatively inexpensive, but if you buy a $20 animal, we know you will probably spend another $100 on the cage or tank, grooming tools, food, bed, toys, and treats—plus you’ll be back to a pet superstore every month to restock. Also, be aware of these 50 secrets your pets wish they could tell you.
Tell us when your animal goes to the bathroom
Animals pee and poop in our store all the time—that’s why all the products on our lower shelves are sealed in plastic! We don’t mind—as long as you tell us. You wouldn’t believe how many people let their pets make a mess and just keep walking.
Don’t get scared by a high price
It’s true: You may find lower prices for pet food in big-box stores or online (though beware of shipping fees that hike up the price). But most of us have great sales and loyalty programs, and many stores (including the pet superstore PetSmart) will match prices for identical products.
