If you live in the city and are looking for a place with your basic and average pet care supplies, this is the place for you. However, being the owner of a more exotic type of animal, this store wasn't necessarily the place for me. In searching for some more specialized care accessories, only the larger, national chains will do for me. From an aesthetic point of view, the store is pretty dark, and the animal smell (as expected) is plenty strong, but if you live in the U Street area, the location and reasonable prices are impossible to beat. Plus, if you're a fish person their 48-hour guarantee will make sure that a sick fish doesn't hit your wallet too hard.
