Cartimar Pet Shop
A Place for the Rich Animal Lovers or
Simple Animal Breeders?

Travel Philippines
Consumerism

The first thing I observed when I went in Cartimar pet shop during the very first time, yes it was a haven for animal breeders and lovers and is also a place to cater to higher society. Why? Because most breeders and pet lovers are the ones who spend big amount to sustain the hobby.

During the 80’s Cartimar was known for its shopping center, but now the shopping center was almost covered with pet shops all over the corners. Plus recently, SM Savemore located at the old vacant lot occupies the center area in between the pet shop and the shopping complex.

The Cartimar shopping center now caters to consumer markets that sells authentic and knockoff goods such as shoes, shirts, clothing, accessories like cap, bags, etc.and specialty shops. The merchants allows buyer to purchase by the bulk for reselling.

While the Cartimar pet shops have different entry point and are subdivided into groups:
Pet shops and supplies – birds, dogs, rabbits, fishes and and other exotic animals like shark, martinez.
Aqualand
Bird pet shop
Dog pet shops
Plants and orchids center
Bicycle stores
Kitchen Supplies
Food court and
Other Specialty Stores

We are just a simple animal breeder and we often dropped by Cartimar pet shop twice a month for our aviary supplies, dog accessories and needs. But for thrift shoppers, you can make price comparisons and quality against those that sells the same goods from malls and other stand alone shops. Sometimes the cost are just the same, the good thing about Cartimar pet shop, rare items and supplies can only be bought from this place. The travel is worth it, pet animals that are for sale are negotiable and if you’re lucky to witness some endangered animals are sold in the side streets at a very affordable price, these animals required permit but in Cartimar trading you only need to haggle and extra courage to get the deal done. And please I have to emphasize on this topic as I have allergic rhinitis to fight off every time I visit the area. I noticed on weekends some families bring the whole clan to spend bonding time and shopping at the same time, please refrain to bring toddlers in the area, the birds alone and other fury animals are not that sanitized and we are not sure if they are loaded with vitamins. The fumes, smell alone can cause and transmit allergies and could trigger the immune systems.

As for my next project, I am eager to set up our fish tank 🙂 The last time I visited the Aqualand I checked out the fish species I would love to have on my handsome aquarium aside from the pricey arowana, we saw lots of baby sharks (the types that are not endangered) placed in long tiled aquarium in salt water. But what scared me most, is to have piranha on our tanks. Until next time, I’ll post a picture of me with my lovely piranha! And yes Cartimar is a haven for simple average people like us.

Hey Admin Green Dei,
In addition to your post I was wondering, the first time i got her she came with free pet food we didn’t know the brand but it was beef pro for puppies.I bought her in a place here in the Philippines called Cartimar.(it is a pet market but they dont get their pups from puppy mills they get them from the best dog breeders in our country) and there are many shops for animals. Anyways the guy told me to soak the food in water for 40 mins. because she cannot bite it properly since she is a puppy.And she ate it normally until we ran out and bought other brand alpo and she ate it fine then she didn’t eat it after a few day even if its dry. Then we gave her cooked pig bones with meat on it and she ate anything besides her dog food. Why is that we want her to eat alot since she is so skinny because she doesn’t eat much dog food. pleas help!
Cheers

Dear Admin Green Dei,
Thanks, on a related note, A pet shop is sure one place where you are bound to fall in love with at least one particular face or two, and, if the animal seems to be liking you, and then what better feeling than that!

Hi Admin Green Dei,
Thanks for the above, Is it SAFE to buy American Guinea Pigs at the Aranque Market and/or at Cartimar? Some say animals bought at the Bio Research Pet shops have weaker immune system… how true?
Great Job!

Hi Admin Green Dei,
Thanks, on a related note, My friend is going to bring me there, but we are not sure if it’s like Divisoria. Because I want to go to Tutuban or that 168 mall, and I heard bout Cartimar as the pet palace but what about the clothes, shoes, toys, stuffs?

I read that some people go to Cartimar for post-shopping for Christmas.. so, do you think I can buy cheap bargain clothes other stuffs there besides pets in Cartimar??
Nice One!

Ola! Admin Green Dei,
Thanks for the info, Let’s be frank – insurance isn’t always the most interesting of subjects to talk and think about. Yet if you have a pet shop, without appropriate pet shop insurance, you may be running the risk of your business being wiped-out in a moment due to bad luck.
Thanks

Hey Admin Green Dei,
This might be off topic, however, One of the most popular brands of toys, and children’s television show, is the Littlest Pet Shop. This show, which features a wide variety of pets in a pet shop, is a huge hit with children as it teaches them about the world around them through some fun-loving animals in the pet store.

may alam po ba kayo nagbebenta ng martinez bird na 400 pesos pababa

    Daryll Villena · April 20, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    From Cartimar, the last time we checked PhP350 per piece just right in front of the entrance (to birds section) where the PUJ’s passed by.

      ynah · April 25, 2013 at 4:39 pm

      wala po kasi kami nakita eh

        Daryll Villena · April 25, 2013 at 7:18 pm

        that’s because “nilalako” lang sya, the seller doesn’t stay in one place for a long period of time because “bawal magbenta” nun. That’s why when the guy arrives with a basket on his shoulders, pinagkaguluhan sya, daming interesadong bumili. After a few 10 minutes, sold na matrinez nya. 🙂

michael · April 26, 2013 at 2:58 pm
