The Good

  • Low Price Guarantee

All but two (Carmel and Mountain View) Pet Food Express locations offer a community veterinary clinic. VIP PetCare provides affordable and accessible veterinary care for pet owners throughout California. Owners bring their pets to get vaccines, standard heartworm tests, pet microchip I.D.s with lifetime registration, de-worming services, and more. Community members don’t have to make an appointment to receive these services; just show up to a local Pet Food Express.

Low Price Guarantee

Pet Food Express states it will beat competitors’ prices on an identical item. If the cost of the item is $10 or less, the company will beat the competitor's price by 10 percent. If the price of the item is more than $10, Pet Food Express will beat it by $1. However, the guarantee does not apply to Acana or Orijen brand foods. The product packaging, size, weight, and condition must all be identical to qualify. 

The Bad

  • Cannot Purchase Items Online
  • Only Located in California

Cannot Purchase Items Online

One of the biggest downfalls to Pet Food Express is its lack of an online shopping feature. Pet owners can see what products are available and prices, but cannot purchase them online and have them delivered. This can be a major inconvenience for those who don’t live in close proximity to a store, those unable to leave home, or those who prefer the convenience of online shopping.

Only Located in California

Pet Food Express is solely available to those living in the Bay Area.

The Bottom Line

Pet Food Express is a useful pet product store for those living in the Bay Area. The company offers specific dog and cat food brands, and other small animal, reptile, and bird products. However, there is no way to purchase any of the products online, and the company does not have any retail locations outside of California.

I subscribed to cat food here for my kitty because I never remember to pick it up when I'm at the store. This online site has saved me from running out of food!

Hello, I was feeding my cats Darwin's Raw Feline Food for about 5 to 6 months, when I received a January 19th, 2019 shipment of food that made my cat extremely ill. He ended up spending 11 days in the hospital because Darwin's Raw Food contained Eccollus Bacteria in it and this nearly killed him. This experience has forever changed my kitty, as he is still recovering from this experience and I have lost nearly three weeks of my life to extreme stress and hardship. Darwin's refuses to take any responsibility for my kitty's illness and they have treated me poorly since I reported the sickness to them.
