Caring for your pet

Reptiles are becoming an increasingly popular choice of pet, and as big reptile lovers ourselves, we can totally see why. Our cold blooded friends can seem like more complicated, high maintenance companions, and some prospective owners can be a bit daunted by their care needs, but with the right approach and products they really are incredibly interesting and rewarding animals to own.

 We have a fantastic selection of reptiles available for purchase in our store, including snakes, lizards, tortoises, spiders and insects. When you purchase a reptile from Didcot Pet Store you can rest assured that you are buying a happy and healthy animal, who has had the very best start to life. We have been awarded a five star rating by DEFRA, which means our animal welfare and care meet the highest possible standards. We have a genuine love and passion for reptiles, and it is very important to us that they are cared for in the best possible way, both whilst they are in the store with us, and once they leave to go to their new home.

We have everything you need to help you look after your new reptile as well as possible, ensuring they have a happy and healthy life. From vivariums and cabinets, through to heating and live feed, you will find all the equipment necessary to set up and maintain your pet’s environment at home. We stock a vast range of live feed and frozen rodents for snake feed; please contact us or visit us in store to find out more.

Looking for help and advice?

We love our reptiles and are always happy to help if you’re looking for help and advice before buying a pet, or once you’ve got one settled at home. If you have never owned a reptile before it is an exciting but sometimes daunting prospect as the care they require is quite different to many other types of animals. Thankfully when you purchase a pet from Didcot Pet Store you can benefit from our many years’ experience of caring for reptiles. 

We can also help you to make sure you have everything you need to get your pet settled and ensure they are well cared for at home. If you’ve never owned a reptile before it can be difficult to know where to start with setting up the right space for them to live happily, what to feed them, and how often, but we have a wealth of knowledge in this area which we are only too happy to share.
