The information listed on the website includes the description of breeds, tips for taking care of pets, amazing facts, veterinary articles and more. Our pets deserve the best, so our mission is to help you in making the life of your faithful four-legged friend happy and comfortable!

Our wonderful pets are devoted friends, cheerful company and attentive interlocutors. People tend to keep pets for something more than just because of objective reasons. A dog is more than just a hunter assistant, a guard and a defender. A cat is more than a virtuoso rat catcher.

We enjoy the warmth and sympathy of our pets and gladly agree to take care of them in return. How it could be different? A human brings a living creature into the family, and this creature has its own needs, its unique character and individual features. Pets can be affectionate or independent, activists or lazybones, they can be modest or capricious - they are so different, but that’s why we love them. And every of them needs a specific approach: every single nuance should be taken into account in order to enable your four-legged friend feel the part of the family, to feel loved and needed. And it is a great responsibility, because pets are completely dependent on the person: in feeding, activity level, health, appearance and coupling. Owners determine all the aspects of their pets’ lives.

Pets-Wiki.com website is created to help pet owners fulfill their responsible task – making pets happy, healthy and active!
