Purrfect Pets is committed to the improved health and well being of all animals in Saudi Arabia. We stock happy, healthy animals, quality pet care products, and a wide range of services and advice to ensure the continued well being of your pet.
We stock a selection of animals suitable for most homes. We will never stock CITES-listed, endangered or wild animals, though we are more than willing to rehome any of these animals in suitable zoos or wildlife parks anywhere in the world.
Come and find your purrfect companion, from friendly tabbies to pedigreed Persians.
Like all pets, cats require love and attention, which some deign to reciprocate (and some don't). Indoor cats need a litter box (which must be cleaned daily), a scratching post and a source of grass for nibbling on. They also need chew toys for hunting down and grappling with. To prevent the population explosion of unwanted, feral cats, spay or neuter your cat as soon as it reaches sexual maturity (about six months old). If you intend to breed with your cat, make sure it cannot wander off.
Some cats, especially long-haired breeds, require regular grooming. All cats must be vaccinated on a regular basis by your vet. They are prone to some fairly virulent diseases which can spread like wildfire. We will provide you with all the information you need to keep your cat healthy.
Whether you're looking for a guard dog, hunting dog or loyal companion, we'll source your best friend. Dogs need constant attention, as well as space to run around in. They also need a regular regime of vaccinations (by law) to keep them healthy. Spay or castrate your dog as soon as it reaches sexual maturity to prevent unwanted litters and excessive wandering. Always consider your children when choosing a breed, some dogs do not mix well with young humans.
Some dogs require regular grooming and/or trimming of claws. Ask us about our grooming services.
Come and choose from a range of brightly coloured, chatty birds, including African grey parrots, macaws, canaries and doves.
African greys are popular parrot pets with long life spans (40+ years), great intelligence and a need for constant stimulation. They are destructive of themselves and property when they become bored.
The cage should be large with a top opening should the bird wish to get out to fly around the room. Round cages seem to distress African greys, so always choose a rectangular one. Make sure the perches provided with the cage are not too hard, and replace with a softer wood if they are (especially for young birds). The bird must have access to food and water at all times. African greys are partial to fruits, nuts and leafy greens. They also need a supply of minerals.
These little chaps are purrfect starter pets for children. They are friendly, small and easily pleased. Always choose an animal that has no obvious illness. Having the cage ready for your small companion to move into, smooths the transition from the pet shop. Cages must be large enough for the animals, and contain bedding and an exercise wheel.
A new hamster may bite in defence, but this will stop when he becomes used to you and your love. Hamsters love to chew, so make sure they have chewable bits of wood or similar in the cage. They must have an exercise wheel! They also love tubes and tunnels to scamper about in.
Breeding of hamsters at home is not recommended, and males and females must be kept separate.
Guinea pigs are social animals and should not be alone. It is recommended that you keep a same sex pair (two females are more docile than two males). They live between 5 and 10 years, and need a fairly large cage that is easy to clean. They are active day and night and can be vocal. They require a balanced diet including a good source of vitamin C.
A soft, cuddly rabbit is a great pet to curl up with in front of the TV. Though, be aware that rabbits are long-lived and require specialised veterinary care. Always choose a rabbit that has no obvious disease or deformity. Rabbits require large cages which are easy to clean. They also need time out of the cage for exercise and socialising.
Pelleted rabbit food is not sufficient to keep a rabbit healthy, and they require lots of fresh grass and vegetables, especially high fibre plants like spinach. Rabbits are playful, active and curious, and require toys to keep them occupied and out of trouble!
Rabbits require regular brushing, but should never be bathed. They are prone to chewing and digging, so rabbit-proofing your home is a must.
Rabbits are prolific breeders, so get your animal spayed or castrated as soon as they are mature.
We stock a range of freshwater fish which brighten and calm any room. We have a full complement of accessories including tanks and fish food.
Always buy a tank large enough to house the adult fish, so you don't get a huge surprise when the tiddlers you bought outgrow the tank and take over the lounge. Learn about your fish before you buy, e.g. some like to school, so you must get more than one. Some fish like tall tanks, some like broad and shallow. Most fish require hiding places under rocks or vegetation. The vegetation is essential to maintaining the quality of the water and the fish. It is best to start your tank with hardy fish like platies before introducing the more exotic species. This allows the tank environment to equilibrate.
Water must be kept at a constant temperature, and be replaced on a regular basis. A water pump and filter will help to aerate and clean the water.
Terrapins are delightful reptiles, which cannot be handled much and need large aquaria. The aquarium needs to have land and water, as well as live aquatic plants. Terrapins need to be kept under constant temperature with lights, as well as a spot lamp for them to bask under. The aquarium must be equipped with a water pump and filter to aerate and clean the water. Tap water is usually sufficient for terrapins, and at least half of it must replaced every week.
Terrapins are omnivores and enjoy a wide range of vegetable and animal foods. This can make a tank very dirty and require more frequent cleaning.
Well cared-for terrapins do not suffer from many diseases, and occasional fungal infections of the shell can usually be treated with remedies used for fish. It is not recommended that one breeds terrapins at home.
