Taking care of pets means always having some necessities in the house. A great pet store can make keeping your pet pantry stocked with the basics much easier. What’s more, the owners and staff in local pet stores can often give advice about what brands and products are best for pets with specific needs. They can even provide guidance about what products certain pets need in terms of food, bedding, and accessories. This can be really helpful if you have recently adopted a new pet. These are some of the best local pet shops in Kamloops, BC.

1. GO Fetch

GO Fetch is perhaps the embodiment of a good old-fashioned local pet shop. It is locally owned and operated, and owner Kristi is dedicated to giving back to the community of Kamloops. The store has regular drives for local animal shelters, and sometimes takes in puppies or kittens in need of adoption, caring for them until they find their forever home. This is on an ad hoc basis, however, so don’t count on simply being able to walk in and buy a kitten or puppy. Their stock is primarily geared toward dogs and cats. This special focus enables them to stock a wide range of brands and products for dogs and cats. You will find foods from brands like Pets Go Raw, Mountain Dog, Acana, and Orijen, litter from brands such as Intersand, and a range of toys and accessories, such as snuffle mats. While they do not have an online store, they are happy to deliver items locally. You can place your order in-store or by phone.

Get the best for your pets

Knowing what your pet needs can be tricky sometimes. Just like people, animals can have special needs or intolerances and may need more support as they age. A great local pet shop can help you to meet those needs by supplying you with daily necessities and special items. They may even be able to order special products if you ask them. The staff at local stores may also be able to give advice. However, there may be times when you need a more detailed, professional opinion. In these cases, book a virtual vet appointment with Vetster to speak to a veterinarian for guidance.
