Our Story

Our Story

The Healthy Pet Center was founded more than two decades ago in a small plaza on Route 4 in North Greenbush. Lisa Neal and her mother, Gayle, always loved working with animals and wanted to share their passion with others. This was their chance to live a dream!

Those early days of long hours and hard work resulted in loyal customers who appreciated the personal attention and Lisa's extensive knowledge of pet nutrition. As the business grew, Lisa shared that knowledge and enthusiasm for customer service with her employees.

Today, Healthy Pet Center has become THE place for pets and their people! Customers come in to visit, shop, and share stories.

In addition to an excellent assortment of healthy dog and cat foods, treats, and supplements, we offer a wide variety of toys, beds, grooming supplies, crates, carriers, and everything else you may need for your furry family member. Also available are small animal foods, treats, bedding, and toys, as well as bird seed and reptile supplies.

Our Latham location also offers the largest Aquatics selection in the area!

We Care

Our goal is to be sure that every customer who enters the store leaves with exactly the right items for their pet! Diet is extremely important in a pet's health, and our team works hard to stay up to date on the best and healthiest pet products available. We will help you match those items to your pet's specific dietary needs so that they can live a long, happy, and healthy life!

Our Locations

Healthy Pet Center Troy, New York

Located at 237 North Greenbush Road in Troy (just up the road from Hudson Valley Community College), is the original Healthy Pet Center.

When visiting this location, be sure to bring your four-legged friend with you and take advantage of the Do-It-Yourself dog washing station in the rear of the store. It accommodates any size dog and takes the stress out of bath time for both of you. Shampoo, towels, and a dryer are provided to make stopping in for a quick bath easy and convenient!

Healthy Pet Center Delmar, New York

In 2012 Healthy Pet Center decided to add a second location and moved into the old L.C. Smith's Pet Center building at 154 Delaware Avenue in Delmar.

This bright, clean store has a cozy atmosphere that will immediately make you feel at home. You can expect to be greeted by one or more of the 3 store cats who may ask for a bit of special attention!

Please don't hesitate to ask the friendly staff for their help with any questions you may have. As is all our stores, the staff is fully trained in pet nutrition and can help you find the best foods, supplements, and treats for your pet's specialized dietary needs. They will be happy to share their knowledge with you so that you can be confident in the future choices you make for your pet.

This location also offers full-service grooming with a talented and experienced groomer who truly has a special touch!

The Healthy Pet Center family loves to give back to homeless pets! The rear of the Delmar store is home to Free To Be Me Rescue. Dogs available for adoption can be met after making an appointment with the rescue group, or keep an eye on our EVENTS section for scheduled adoption clinics.
