Mostly for small pets.

Most of this store contains small pet supplies and not dog or cat supplies, though they do have a few of those. Due to all the gerbils and hamsters and other critters, the store does have a bit of a stink.

Unique accessories and items.

This store is a little expensive, but they carry some of the most adorable pet clothes and accessories I've seen. They also carry a few premium brands of pet food, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Great selection!

This store has a great selection of pet supplies - from some of the harder-to-find premium food brands to books and collars. Their staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable. This is one of my favorite stores.

A little pricey.

Has a large selection, and specializes in a homemade dog treat, which our dog loves (but he loves just about anything, LOL). However, it's a bit more expensive than regular stores are.

A little pricey, but good selection.

The store is clean and their selection is good, but their prices are a little high, and you can buy virtually the same thing at Walmart or a chain pet store for cheaper.

This was a very small store, and carried only the basics and not much more.

Cheaper than Petsmart.

I found this store to be cheaper than Petsmart for many supplies. They also have a very large selection to choose from, and almost anything you need, they'll have.

I've never seen such a large selection of fish in one store before. Along with that, they have virtually everything you could possibly need or want for fish. Only downside to their large size is that there's always some fish in sub-par conditions. However, most are fine and the prices are good.

Overpriced, but good selection.

Several of their items are overpriced - you can buy the same thing at Walmart or a chain store for considerably less. However, they do have a good selection, particularly for those looking for horse supplies.

Clean facilities and good price.

The animals all seem content here, and the staff is friendly and caring. There's also a vet in the same building, so there's that peace of mind.

Wonderful place to adopt from.

This staff truly cares about their animals, and takes the time to screen and get to know you to ensure that their animals are going to someone who will give them the best in life, and not end up right back in the shelter. Their animals are also kept in very good conditions.

It's refreshing to go in here. The staff always know what they're talking about (unlike the chain stores) and give good advice. The best part is - they're reasonably priced!

Very helpful staff.

This is the only place that sells the Chicken Soup brand around here, so we're in there about once a month or so to buy it. The staff is very friendly and helpful and their prices are reasonable. They'll also order food for you if they don't carry it, and will call you when it comes in. Great place to shop.

A bit of a dump.

Every time we've been in there, their conditions have not been the most sanitary, and we make an effort to not shop there due to their selling of puppies, which we've never supported. Only thing they have going for them is their large fish selection, which is not available at the chain stores. Though their staff is fairly incompetent at catching fish - we stood there for 45-minutes while they chased them around, then finally got fed up and caught it ourself in less than a minute. (This has happened several times) Better to buy from a store that knows what they're doing.

Can't rate them highly enough.

If you're in need of emergency services or a veterinary specialist for your pet, FVS is the best. Their staff is truly concerned about your situation and their empathy and caring is sincerely outstanding. What took our regular vet five hours to do (and ended up with no diagnosis) took them two hours to do, and they could accurately tell us what was wrong and our dog started being his regular self again the very next day. Very very good if you need a specialty vet.

We've adopted three animals from this shelter - Sampson, Norah, and Desi. Norah and Desi both contracted FIP and had to be euthanized, despite being indoor-only cats. This is something that was probably picked up during their stay at this shelter, and despite the rarity of the disease, it was the third case we have personally heard of that occured to a cat from this shelter. Therefore, I would not recommend adopting a young cat (under two) from this shelter unless the risk of FIP wants to be taken. When our vet contacted them after Norah died, she told them what needed to be done to kill the virus, and apparently, after Desi's death, they did not take precautions to do so. However, their conditions are superior to other shelters that we have seen, and I most likely will adopt another dog or older cat from them in the future. Their staff is also very friendly and caring, and was happy to provide background information and their observations about the animals and their personalities.

Worst vet we've ever been to.

The last time we used this vet was for a second opinion on our cat, Norah, when our regular vet did not know what was wrong with her. They charged us $300+ for x-rays and fees, and told us she had a broken tailbone, sending us home with expensive medications. We later took her to a specialist, where they did x-rays (this would be her third set of x-rays) and the specialist, like the first vet, did NOT find anything broken in their x-rays (it turned out to be FIP). Yet this vet told us there was a break. Would've been OK had they said they didn't know what was wrong, but to tell us the tailbone was broken when there was no proof of it was outrageous and a waste of money. Wouldn't recommend these guys when there's better vets minutes away that don't waste your time and money.

Great vets!

One of the best veterinarians in the area. They do their best to help both patients and owners alike, and when we had to put our Desi to sleep, they took the time to pass a sympathy card around the staff and mailed it to us - a gesture that none of our other vets have ever taken the time to do. Very caring, knowledgeable staff that know what they're doing.
