Summons (or dismisses) a pet.



String - GUID of the battle pet to summon. If the pet is already summoned, it will be dismissed.


You can dismiss the currently-summoned battle pet by running


Note that this will throw an error if you do not have a pet summoned.

Blizzard has moved all petIDs over to the "petGUID" system, but left all of their functions using the petID terminology (not the petGUID terminology) except for this one. For consistency, the term "petID" should continue to be used.

Patch history

Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.1.0 (2012-11-27): Renamed to C_PetJournal.SummonPetByGUID, first argument is now a GUID string.
