Great price on the veiled chameleon. We bought a tegu once there and it was listed as an Argentine but it was really a Columbian. They don't seem all that knowledgeable about reptiles. Had a translucent bearded dragon with the normals and priced the same, so that's a good deal for anyone knowing their species.
I bought a ball python on a Thursday got her home and upon looking at the snake I seen she had mites. I called them to let them know and they told me to come back and buy the mite medicine. I feel I shouldn't have to buy it if the sold me a snake that had mites. I went into the store later on that week to see if it was just a mishap and held other snakes all them had mites. To me that's not a good thing now less then a week later I have to take her to the vet for skin problems. World of pets is not a good pet store for reptiles

This store is catered to experienced pet owners who are looking for specialty fish and aquatic life. They have a fantastic selection and any collector should start there. Customers with limited experience should seek the advice of a professional who would be happy to point them in the right direction. In short, if you have a goldfish bowl- go to Wal-Mart. If you want exotic fish that you cant find anywhere else, go to World of Pets.

I walk into world of pets expecting a run down, smelly, nasty place. i had been there before and seen this in their store. but when i walked in today i found it in alot better shape! i was also surprised about the shape all the animals were in. before i saw about 20 rats in a fish tank, all full grown. it was sad and the kittens had wet drippy noses and eyes, fish were dead in their tanks. but as i looked around everything looked real happy and healthy!
i walked in looking for a new member of my family, a baby ferret. as soon as i walked through the door i was greeted with kindness and eagerness to help. i had called before asking about the ferrets they were on sale, not a bad price either. he could tell me the ages and where the ferrets came from. they looked happy and energetic and very healthy. something surprising to find in world of pets! i was nothing but impressed and pleased after leaving with all the information i needed! id also like to add for good messure that the kits included a 1 year warrenty. even though i doubt anything will happen to her, its something nice to keep in mind just in case! dont be fooled by outward apperinces!!

Our family's World of Pets experience: We recently bought a parakeet for our family. It was poor choice to not shop around put this place was convenient and open late. Upon entering the bird room (which was very isolated) there was a wide selection, Parrots to Finches of all breeds. The Parakeets were over crowded about twenty to a small cage not recommended by the staff of World of Pets for one. The Cockatiels about five to a cage with several that didn't look healthy, patches of feathers missing and overweight. The birds were all very upset by our presence. all of the cages were up and hard to look into to check for cleanliness and runny stools(signs of sick birds). The staff seemed very eager to give us info and help us choose the proper equipment. They were well staffed to the point where you turn a corner and are always asked if you need anything.. customer service to the annoying point and as I learned just a poor use of time. In naivety we choose a parakeet from them. The employee reached into the cage and wrangled a parakeet from the flock. He told us he would show us how to clip the wings, as well clip our birds for us now as none of the their parakeets had them clipped. He ruthelessly pinned him to the side of the cage. Dropped the bird once he got him outside the cage, he flew into their glass window of bird room and sliding glass door about ten times before the bird wore out and stunned gave up the fight. The employee showed us where to clip the wings but after a full minute of searching could not find the scissors to do it for us. We left with our bird, a little stunned by the rough treatment but naive to pet store procedure. I wondered if our feathered friend would suffer any damage and the employee assured me he would be fine but gave me a 4 day guarantee! How big of them. I worked very hard to tame this bird who had obviously never been handled, let alone seen very many humans. I knew I couldn't let the bird out or clip the birds wings until i had tamed it. The rough treatment it received by the pet store employee is not my way. It ended up escaping out of the cage during a cleaning and incidentally flew threw the opening door to outside after only of week of living with us. The bird could fly perfect. I am writing this review to let any prospective naive bird owners to be that this is not the way pet stores should house birds or sell them. They should not be stuffed into cages by the packs and they should be kept in a spot were they can see and be seen by humans. Not the top shelf of some back room. There wings should be clipped before the purchase date and they should be handled by store employees not just thrown food and water. With so many employees always on hand they should find time to give their pets the proper treatment. World of pets has the bottom line in mind not the quality or treatment of animals they are selling. They have great variety of birds but not the company policy to ready the birds for domestic household pet life which is the pet store demographic! Be aware that this is not typical pet store procedure. Do your homework and shop around before finding your future family bird. We decided to purchase another parakeet Top score goes to... Planet Pet, 3147 Dixie Highway, Erlanger, KY 41018 please read my full review at Yahoo for an my experience where I was blown away by the employees and there knowledge and true love of pets including the ones they sell! I will never make another purchase from World of Pets.

I recently bought a dog crate at this store,I decided to go and return it and I was told I could not get my money back they would give me a store credit they should of told us that when we were buying the product I can understand if we didnt have our receipt but when you have your receipt you always get your money back and it wasnt even open,we will never buy anything from your store again and we will tell everyone we know not to either.
WORLD OF PETS HAS THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF OF ANY COMPANY IN ANY FIELD. THE HAVE A WAY OF BREAKING DOWN THE INFORMATION SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND AND RETAIN ALL THE REQUIRED SKILLS NEEDED. I HAVE 2 FRESH WATER AND 1 SALT WATER FISH TANK AND MY FRIEND HAS A TURTLE TANK AND THIS IS THE COMPANY WE BOTH HIGHLY RECOMEND. RICK.
