2001 NE Alberta St, Alberta Arts District, Portland, OR
In a town of amazing pet stores healthy pets stands out and is maybe the most amazing. Healthy pets can give you all kinds of recommendations if you want to deepen your knowledge and increase your options for optimal health for your dog. The judiciously-named Healthy Pets Northwest store in the heart of the Alberta Arts District is a locally-owned, small pet store any serious Portland pet lover should know. The team at Healthy Pets Northwest are remarkably open with their care and concern for a healthier pet lifestyle. Of course, to get that high-quality diet, it all comes at higher prices than you’re used to paying at the local mega pet chain. I’m not sure my dog should be eating healthier or more expensively than I am, but there’s no doubt Healthy Pets Northwest is a charming local pet store to find the information and products to give my dog the best care and health. Prices are competitive compared to other local pet stores. It’s a really unique pet store compared to the big giant companies. Walking in, to the right there are a variety of pet foods and dog treats in these containers you can choose from. There is a wall of pet toys to the left with a lot of options to choose from. I’m forever grateful…. Great neighborhood pet store. Staff is knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic about pets. Great selection of all the other pet supplies you’d need: toys, food, treats, training aids, etc at decent prices especially for a boutique type store. Heather says “Um…. hi Daniel! Um…. did you happen to leave a not so great review of Healthy Pets Northwest on Yelp??” They both had huge smiles on their faces. Glad to find my new favorite place to buy food for my pets.
