Petpet Laboratory



What is the Petpet Laboratory?
The Petpet Laboratory is a place just like the regular Secret Laboratory, except this place is for petpets only. If you have access to the petpet laboratory you can zap one of your petpets there, once a day. Of course you never know what will happen to your petpet, this page will help you get more insights in the possibilities of the Petpet Laboratory.


How do you get access to the Petpet Laboratory?
Receiving access to the Petpet Laboratory is more complicated than it sounds. In order to receive access to it, you must do two things. Firstly, you must have access to the regular Secret Laboratory. Getting access to the regular Secret Laboratory is very expensive. If you would like to read more about the Secret Laboratory, visit SunnyNeo's Secret Laboratory guide. After you have collected all nine pieces of the Secret Laboratory, you must also collect the nine different 'Petpet Laboratory Map' pieces. You can see them below.

Piece #1 Piece #2 Piece #3
Piece #4 Piece #5 Piece #6
Piece #7 Piece #8 Piece #9


You can buy the pieces of the map separately at the shop wizard for example. Or you can buy a full lab map at the trading post. This might seem easier, but it's not always cheaper than buying the pieces separately, so you'll need to pay close attention that you don't pay too much. Unfortunately it's rather hard to buy pieces separately because neopets didn't number the pieces, so it might take some work to find the piece you're looking for.

Once you have all the Petpet Laboratory Map pieces in your inventory. You can get access by trading in your map pieces for permanent access to the Petpet Laboratory. If you decide to do this your Petpet Laboratory Map pieces will disappear forever, and you will not be able to get them back.

If you've decided you want to trade in your pieces for permanent laboratory access you go here:

that is the quick URL to the place. If you want to go there manually. You can also find this place in the Games Room, search for Treasure Maps, Petpet.


What does the Petpet Laboratory do?
Various things can happen to your pet, luckily you get to decide which pet you want to send in there before anything happens.

The following things can happen if you use the Lab Ray on your pet:

  • Your petpet's colour and species can change (into Brown Ona, White Gatow etc.)

    The Kookith begins wildly pushing buttons on the console, which looks to be made of cardboard and... Achyfi cans?! This can't be right! You begin formulating a plan to rescue your Petpet and run far, far away, but it's too late. The ray has already been fired...



    Whoa... did it actually work? Sure looks like it. Your Petpet has been transformed. Imagine that.

    You should come back tomorrow and try again!

  • Your petpet's name can change (into weird preset names, for all possibilities look below)

    The Kookith begins wildly pushing buttons on the console, which looks to be made of cardboard and... Achyfi cans?! This can't be right! You begin formulating a plan to rescue your Petpet and run far, far away, but it's too late. The ray has already been fired...



    OMGROFL shall now be known as Sir Bob of Geraptiku. How nice.

    Okay, maybe not that nice. Lets hope you have better luck tomorrow.

  • Your petpet can gain one level

    The Kookith begins wildly pushing buttons on the console, which looks to be made of cardboard and... Achyfi cans?! This can't be right! You begin formulating a plan to rescue your Petpet and run far, far away, but it's too late. The ray has already been fired...



    Nothing looks different about OMGROFL but you can sense something happened. It becomes evident later when it tries to climb a tree but breaks off the branch instead. The ray has increased its level to: 2

    Tomorrow may see another boost if you're brave enough to risk it.

  • Your petpet can lose one level

    The Kookith begins wildly pushing buttons on the console, which looks to be made of cardboard and... Achyfi cans?! This can't be right! You begin formulating a plan to rescue your Petpet and run far, far away, but it's too late. The ray has already been fired...



    The ray produces a giant flash of light, but Greg doesn't look any different. When it can't even climb the Multi-level Scratching Post you bought it, you realize that malfunctioning lab ray actually decreased its level to: 1

    Just your luck.

  • Your petpet can turn into a pile of soot (gives you the avatar)

    The Kookith begins wildly pushing buttons on the console, which looks to be made of cardboard and... Achyfi cans?! This can't be right! You begin formulating a plan to rescue your Petpet and run far, far away, but it's too late. The ray has already been fired...



    Your eyes recover quite quickly after the giant explosion, but that's more than you can say for your Petpet. The Kookith is kind enough to sweep up OMGROFL for you and you head home.

    Do you really want to come back tomorrow?


    Something Has Happened!
    0 You are now eligible to use 'Petpet Laboratory' as an avatar on the NeoBoards!

  • Your petpet can can disappear entirely

    The Kookith begins wildly pushing buttons on the console, which looks to be made of cardboard and... Achyfi cans?! This can't be right! You begin formulating a plan to rescue your Petpet and run far, far away, but it's too late. The ray has already been fired...

    ---

    Your fears that the Kookith didn't actually know what the heck he was doing are confirmed when Goober suddenly disappears, leaving no trace.

    None. Nada. Zip. Ziltch.

    Guess it's time to buy a new Petpet.

  • Nothing happens

    The Kookith begins wildly pushing buttons on the console, which looks to be made of cardboard and... Achyfi cans?! This can't be right! You begin formulating a plan to rescue your Petpet and run far, far away, but it's too late. The ray has already been fired...



    But... nothing happens. It makes a kind of 'zzrrrppptttt' sound before shutting down completely. The creepy Kookith shoos you away and appears quite angry, so you hightail it out of there before he shoots some miniature laser beam at you or something.

    Looks like you'll have to come back tomorrow.


As you can see good or bad things can happen. Your pet could change into a lovely color, but your petpet can also disappear, leaving you with nothing. It's all random.


Petpet Laboratory only specialties:
If you use the Petpet Laboratory on your petpet, you have a small chance of receiving a laboratory only colour or species. There are no other ways to obtain these petpets, you will not be able to buy Petpet Paint Brushes to get your petpet in these colours, and there are no shops that sell these kinds of petpets. If you receive a Petpet Laboratory only species or colour, you will receive a special message.

Holy Cow! Is that a special Petpet? It surely is. You're quite the lucky one.

Don't come back tomorrow... keep that Petpet for eternity! Or not.

Petpet Laboratory restrictions
Once you've started to use the laboratory on your petpet there are a few restrictions. First of all, your petpet will no longer qualify for the Petpet Protection League. This means that if your petpet's species is chosen for the Petpet Protection League, you will not win the trophy.

Second of all, you are not able to paint your petpet after it is zapped. Lets say you received a White Weewoo, but you really want a Grey Weewoo, well too bad! Because you cannot paint zapped petpets.

Thirdly, if your petpet should turn into a Krawk petpet because of the laboratory, you cannot turn him into a pet Krawk. Zapped Krawks cannot turn into regular Krawks.


Petpet Avatars
If you zap your petpet with the Petpet Laboratory, changes are he will turn into an avatar pet such as Gruslen or Snowbunny. Well luckily, you will be able to receive the avatars from zapped petpets. This means that the Petpet Laboratory can be a fairly cheap way to get all the petpet avatars. All you have to do is buy yourself a cheap petpet, and hope it will turn into an avatar petpet. This could take a long time however. Also, you have the chance that your petpet disappears. Please note that on aged petpet avatars the zapped pet should also be at least the minimum required age.


Special Avatar:
You can also get an avatar from the Petpet Laboratory (it might take a while until you get it though).

Petpet Laboratory
Have your petpet turned to soot by the Petpet Labray.

You can only get access to the Petpet Lab if you have access to the regular pet lab. This means you need to complete both the 9 pieces of Secret Laboratory Map, and the 9 pieces of Petpet Laboratory Map.
