That is so cool! Their review page has a picture of our storefront when we were closed, but come by and check us out during store hours. We promise you’ll have fun looking at all of the products that we carry!

We also wanted to note that we carry a lot of Canadian brand pet foods, a good selection of treats, and that like most of the other pet stores listed, we offer professional grooming too!

Howl-O-Ween Sale + Party

Howl-O-Ween Party at Cosmopawlitan

Okay, we know there are many of you out there who love to dress up your entire family for Halloween — including your pets!

Pet Halloween Costumes at Cosmopawlitan

You’re invited to our Howl-O-Ween Party on Saturday, October 31st! Make sure you have your costumes ready for our Costume Contest – there’s only one week left. We know some of you have already been working diligently on your costumes for a couple weeks.

If you’re still looking for a costume, drop by Cosmopawlitan this week because all of our Halloween costumes are 20% off. While your pet is trying on costumes, pre-register for our Costume Contest!

We hope to see you soon!

Some Halloween Pet Tips:
1) If your pet is alright with wearing a costume, make sure it’s not on too loose or too tight, or restricting vision. Do not leave your costumed pet unsupervised.
2) Keep human goodies away from your pets! Chocolate is toxic to dogs, cats and ferrets.
3) Keep candy wrappers away too!
4) Make sure your pets are wearing ID tags, in case they escape from your care for any reason.
