Picking up a bag of pet chow is not as easy as it used to be. There are zillions of mind-boggling options for animal eats, rows and rows of garishly colored bags of meat-flavored pellets, all boasting a scientifically sound diet for your beloved pet. It's enough to turn the hand-clamming task of choosing the perfect provisions for little Fluffy into a nightmare. Step away from the ledge, pet owner, and head to Pet Food Express. The place has earned a reputation for its top-shelf stock of food and toys for the discerning pet lover. It has a complete stock of goods for dogs, cats, reptiles, rodents, birds, and fish. Best of all, the helpful staff will hold your hand through the aisles of rubber chewies and birdie perches to help you pick out the right stuff to get the tails wagging. And if you really want to go the extra mile, look into the store's special services (pet washes, obedience classes, vaccination sessions, etc.), which put Pet Food Express in a league of its own.
