99PetShops – the portal to affordable pet care

I Love Animals 

Anyone who knows me knows that I adore animals (most of them anyway and definitely not toads – ugh!) and have always had pets.  As a child I recall a cat called ‘Smokey’ and a couple of dogs at different times – ‘Tinkerbell’ (Australian Terrier) and ‘Amy’ (Terrier/Corgi X).  In the early days of marriage I had a couple of Tom cats – ‘Rocky’ and ‘Monty’, a budgie called ‘Peppe’, and my very first dog as an adult was Shaddi – a Maltese.  Since then I’ve had Cavalier King Charles Spaniels – first ‘Colby’ (a black and tan), then ‘Chelsea’ (a tri-colour) and now I have my ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, ‘Ava’.  You can see her pictured below.

Pet Care can be expensive

While I love my pets, caring for them can get quite expensive!  Apart from vet costs for immunisations and any other vet visits needed (hopefully none!), these are some of the products I need to buy regularly:

                • Dog Food
                • Dog Shampoo
                • Heartworm protection
                • Tick protection
                • Intestinal Worm protection

Then there are other things that I may want to buy now and then, like:

                • Brush or comb
                • Toothpaste/toothbrush
                • Bedding
                • Collar / Lead / Harness

Some people might like to buy jackets and jumpers and cool doggie outfits. Unfortunately, I can’t do that with Ava because they cause her coat to matt.

One thing I’ve learnt over the years of being a pet owner is that prices vary from place to place and it pays to shop around because you can save yourself a fortune!  Fortunately, these days we have the internet and the convenience of online shopping.  Online shopping is certainly much easier than driving around from shop to shop checking price differences.  But wait … I can go one better!

99PetShops

Let me introduce you to 99PetShops!

99PetShops Logo

99PetShops was founded by Edward Chan. It was originally intended for personal use, until it was decided to make it available to friends and family, and then to the public in early 2014. Due to a number of personal and financial reasons, 99PetShops was under maintenance mode for about 4 years. By mid-2018 the decision was made to move forward and let users know about 99PetShops.  In the meantime they continue adding new online pet shops and improving the website. 

What is 99PetShops?

99PetShops is a price comparison website where users can find and compare pet products from over 60 online pet shops.

It gathers thousands of pet products over 60 online pet shops – some of which are well-known pet shops such as Petbarn, My Pet Warehouse, PETstock, Pet Circle, etc. This allows pet owners to quickly find the lowest price pet product in few clicks instead of rummaging through dozens of online pet shops.

New online pet shops are still being added and prices and availability are updated daily.

My thoughts on 99PetShops

I’ve found the website very easy to use!  You can look for products by selecting the appropriate categories (eg. Dog or Cat and then maybe Dewormers or Collars, Leads & Harness) and perusing OR if you know the product you’re looking for – just type it in the search bar at the top of the page.  The more specific you are, the more streamlined the results (eg 6 pack or 12 pack or 250ml or 500ml).  

There’s also an option to ‘Notify Me’.  This is if you’ve found a product you want but the price isn’t right.  If you click on ‘Notify Me’, you can subscribe and receive email notification when the price drops.

Here’s a screenshot of the website that shows you the search results for ‘Dogs/Advantage‘.

So you can see that for Advantage Medium Dogs 4-10kg Aqua 1 Pack’s cheapest price is at Oveds Horse & Pet Store.  Also note the ‘Hide 15 other prices’ option which before clicked on said ‘View 15 other prices’.  This shows you all the other comparative prices for that product that are listed on the website. 

Once you’ve found the product you want at the best price and one that suits you, you can click on it and it will take you to the website from which you can purchase.  Note that 99PetShops does not sell products – it helps you find where you can purchase the products at the best prices.

So 99PetShops gets a big tick from me. I’ll be using it from now on to assist in reducing my pet care costs!  

Do you have a pet or pets?  Do you shop around for best prices when buying your pet care products?  I totally recommend you give 99PetShops a go to help reduce your pet care costs!

    Hi Min, my daughter has a Miniature Schnauzer so I will pass this info on to her. Thanks for the post and also the ‘lovin’lifelinky. Have a great week. x

      Thanks Sue – I’m sure your daughter will find the website very useful and cost saving! Have a wonderful weekend! xo

    I love the comparison option. I’m currently considering how to use a Flight Centre gift card I have and I miss being able to go onto something like Trip Advisor (etc) and compare prices and products / options.

    Also love the ease of being able to shop around online!!!

      I love the comparison option too. Kinda makes you feel better about purchases if you know you’ve made an informed choice and saved some pennies! I also love online shopping – so much more convenient than the alternative! 🙂

    I love this idea – a comparison site for pooch supplies. Some things – especially worming, flea & tick treatments are ridiculously expensive so any saving is a good one.

    • Reply Min July 26, 2019 at 10:30 am

      I agree Jo! The prices they ask in the vet surgeries is always way higher than what I can get online.

    Most of my pet costs are prescription based but it’s worth a look.

    • Reply Min July 26, 2019 at 10:33 am

      Definitely worth a look Vanessa! x

    I don’t have pets, Min but I do love comparison sites like this that make it so easy to get a bargain!

      I agree SSG and I think Edward has done a fantastic job here with 99PetShops! xo

    It’s a great idea isn’t it Min. I learned a long time ago that buying Feliway (the pheromone spray which settles and calms cats) is much cheaper online – but now I can find the best price easily on one website. Hooray for 99 Pet Shops!

    • Reply Min July 26, 2019 at 10:35 am

      I think it’s a fabulous idea Janet. I’m so pleased to have discovered 99PetShops and am sure I’ll be making some savings as a result! Have a great weekend! 🙂 x
