Displays information on your pet, such as name, level, combat ratings and attributes.


PetInfoFu keeps track of your pets, including your stabled pets. Optionally, it will track your history of taming pets. Clicking on the FuBar menu, which displays your pet's happiness in colour, will bring up the training dialog. Should you have Cartographer installed, PetInfoFu can keep track of the stables for you.

Pet History

The Pet History will, of course, show incorrect information for long term pets. If you want to correct this you can edit the SavedVariables file in your WTF folder. If you open the FuBar_PetInfoFu.lua file with something like Notepad you need to look for the section ["petHistory"].

Here you'll find one or more sections like this:

["Wind Serpent|Lazuli"] = { 
   ["PetType"] = "Wind Serpent", 
   ["PetLevel"] = 21, 
   ["HunterLevel"] = 42, 
   ["PetName"] = "Lazuli", 

You can set the ["PetLevel"] variable to the level your pet was when you tamed her. In Lazuli's case: 21. You can set the ["HunterLevel"] variable to the level you were when you tamed her. In Lazuli's case: 42.

If you want to add older pets, that are no longer with you, you can add a section like the above, be careful of the commas, and edit that. The first bit (the key) should be a combination of the pet type and it's name. The values for ["PetType"] (Cat, Wolf, etc.) and ["PetName"] should be set appropriately. So, adding:

["Owl|Nightshade"] = { 
   ["PetType"] = "Owl", 
   ["PetLevel"] = 8, 
   ["HunterLevel"] = 10, 
   ["PetName"] = "Nightwind", 

would add a level 8 Owl called Nightwind, which you tamed when you were level 10.

If you are unsure of what you are doing, please make a back up of this file first. If you get an error when you load your hunter, you can replace the file with the original again.
