If you are looking for a great selection of quality, natural, and holistic pet food and products, this is the store for you! Compared to similar pet food stores in Houston, I found an even bigger selection of some of the foods I am feeding my cats and dogs, and I was quite pleased to find several of the brands I am having to mail order are stocked here. The boarding room is clean and modern and the kitty "condos" are spacious. When I first visited the store to check out the cat boarding facility for my diabetic cat, Linda Scheer, owner and Director of Pet Services, was there and I spoke to her for a good 30 minutes or more about my pets, what I am feeding, and the struggles with my diabetic cat. Linda is a licensed vet tech and very knowledgeable. I have now boarded my diabetic cat at Nourish during two out of town trips. Based on my experiences to date, I recommend them 100%. Linda and Bill Sheer, Rosie, and the rest of the staff are wonderful to work with. Linda spent a lot of time with me prior to boarding to make sure she understood the details of what was needed for my cat in terms of administering her twice daily insulin injections, when and how I wanted them to take periodic blood glucose tests, feeding, etc. She knew I was concerned about leaving my cat in boarding and did everything needed to make me feel comfortable. During both trips I have gotten email updates several times each day to let me know how she is doing, sending me photos of her, and reporting her blood test readings. Boarding is $15 per day, plus an extra $4 per insulin injection. Compared to other boarding facilities, that is a great price. The cats get twice daily 30 minute play times out of their condos. From the emails I received it is obvious my cat got lots of attention and love from the staff...probably more than she gets at home with our 6 animals! Linda has given me great suggestions not only in dealing with the diabetes and recommending products for my cats, but also discussing with me the foods I give our two collies and making recommendations. If you or someone you know has a cat that needs boarding, or if you are looking for a great selection of quality pet foods and products, I highly recommend checking them out!

I'm really bad about reviewing companies / products, but after I saw the two one stars I felt I should step in and describe my own experience.It's been about seven months now since I picked my little guy up, but I remember it being nothing but a smooth process. It wasn't instantaneous - you have to fill out a relatively long application, and then (in my experience at least) there were multiple phone calls and a home inspection part. I can safely say that all of this is just to keep the pets interests in heart; many of those animals have already been abandoned or gone through terrible situations. It was also a very educational moment - I live in an apartment and have never had a dog before, but they were still very open minded about my situation and helped me to understand the commitment that I was about to take. The pets that I saw definitely weren't dirty, either!
I drove from Austin to see my son and based on reviews, both pro and con, I wanted to visit a mom and pop shop. Yes, it is not the tidiest place, but for freshwater fish, this is what I wanted. VERY healthy and great prices. I have been raising fish for over 40 years and I know mom and pop shops get fish locally. They knew I was traveling back to Austin and put all my fish in large bags with fresh oxygen plus a styro crate. Very attentive. And yes, there are lots of kitties roaming around, but they are friendly. :-) I'll be back on my next visit for sure.
I have been going to this Petsmart for a long time now and every time I go in, I have never had any problems. It's a spacious facility, located in a good part of town and is always clean. In addition to going to the store on about a bi-monthly basis, I also just visited Banfield this past weekend to get my puppy his first set of shots. I have never received such great service from a vet. This service is what made us sign up for their wellness plans. Yes, I'm locked into 1 vet now, but I'm okay with it because it was such a pleasant experience.
