• “Lisa was helpful and extremely knowledgeable. She was very kind to our dog, Lucy, attentive and patient in answering our many human questions. We felt great purchasing the products she recommended and will take all her advice in the future. The store was beautiful, clean and had a great natural feel that my husband and I loved! It was the Whole Foods of the animal world! In Especially for Pets, we found a pet store for life! - Betsy H.
