Petco, Poplar Bluff, MO — Four paws quick blood stopper

Got on petco website looking for price and availability for the above product. They had the product for $4.99...


I drove 30 minutes to petco to return an item only to be told returns are suspended until after the pandemic. That's fine, but it's not okay that I wasted my time driving to petco just to be turned away. Hiding it in the fine print is bs. It should be prominent on your website that returns cannot be made. I will no longer shop at petco as it is unnecessarily inconvenient.

      Your fault for not being aware and reading the fine print. You are old enough to drive why not act your age rather than like a five year old. Why not admit your fault for not reading the fine print before wasting your time. You wasted your own time by not reading everything.

    The Bettas are in a small cup this is not okay. Bettas require a heater and a minimum of a 2.5 gallon fish tank.they should have some gravel and something to hide in. My suggestion is get a 10 gallon tank with a heater and dividers so 5 fish can have some space and something to hide in.You will need a filter too.people help me fix this problem or shut this store down.

      Currently, there is no available tracking service for USPS Ground shipping; the normal shipping time for USPS Ground is 7 to 10 business days, excluding holidays & weekends.
      If there is anything else I can assist you with please let me know.

      Really? Petco never post the expected delivery date and no tracking when I purchase. What kind of service is this?

      I will never buy anything from Petco and again and I will make sure everyone I know will do the same.

        PetcoConsumer fraud

        PetCo engages in consumer fraud by refusing to match PetSmart's prices despite its stated policy:

        "The Petco Price Match - Retail Stores: We're committed to providing the highest quality products at the best prices. If you find a lower price for an identical item at any competitor's store, we'll gladly match it."

        Liars...it has now lost my business for life.

          PetcoGroomed with nails buffed and filed.

          When I picked--up my baby I noticed that there was no scented smell I was used to. The man checking me out with my loved one stated - Your little man was so well mannered - and I said -well he is a female!!! I find it amazing that my dog was washed, clipped and nails buffed with them not realizing the sex of the dog they have been dealing with!!! Not only that - the front paws had not been clipped. I will not be using this store again. I had originally booked the appointment with someone - but the day before the appointment - when the verification of the appointment time appeared on my phone - I did not realize the appointment was for someone else to be dealing with my pet!!!
          Not satisfied!!!

            Petco — Not able to use a coupon at petco that petco sent me

            On 11/1 I went to the Petco at 12163 N Sheridan Blvd in Broomfield, Colorado. I had a coupon that I received...


            Petco needs to hire people that really do care about animals. There's a difference between someone that just does it for a check, and someone that goes deep to get an answer for the customers aka pet parent. Petco should not hire just anyone - they need to hire people that want to make a difference - make life better not only for us, but for animals - their lives matter their lives give ppl jobs their existence has helped many like myself feel loved comfort and want to do better for anyone anything that needs help

              PetcoPharmacy online and customer service

              Placed order 8/6/2020 thru PetCo and affiliated partner Express Scripts for a life saving heart condition drug for dog. Now, 4 days later order still saying that it is awaiting Vet approval, Vet has faxed approval 2-3 times now. Called customer service @ [protected] with vet on the line with me and customer rep gave a phony fax number of [protected] for vet to fax approval to. Called number only to find out it is not a fax # or even an existing phone number. Can not understand why agent lied, but it is disturbing as this drug is LIFE SAVING for my pet.

              order date 8/6/2020 current date 8/10/2020
              Order Details

                Petco Animal Suppliespurchasing of ferret.

                We went in petco searching for a ferret and found one. After asking the associates about the animal and weighing out our options, we decided to purchase the animal. After telling the store associate multiple times that we had the proper equipment to care for this animal, she continued to question us. Any additional information on the animal can be researched. This was a racially motivated response to allow us not to be able to purchase this animal. The store associate didn't care to look us in the eye as we were constantly questioned with disregard to our response; as if their decision was already made. The associate made it clear that she had the authority to deny a sale. There was no reason to deny a sale when we explained the dimensions of our cage for the young ferret. The associates at this petco were discriminatory in their decision to not allow us to purchase the ferret.

                This interaction took place at petco store #1872 in sewell, nj 08080.

                  Petco Animal Suppliesemployee

                  I had just finished washing my dog at the self wash station and I payed so I took my dog into Petco to pick out a treat. One of the employees from the wash station ran after me asking if I was 18. I'm under 18 so I said no and she said that I technically wasn't suppose to be allowed to wash my dog. She chased me through the store and said this after I'd already washed my dog and paid. I was so embarrassed and angry that I left immediately.
