• “Many things make Especially for Pets the Very Best. To name a few – great products; a wonderful environment in which all members of the family are welcome, animal and human; and a knowledgeable staff who understand the needs of their animal customers. However, what for me stands out the most is that the staff knows their animal and human clients by name and truly cares about them.” - Jackie A.
