I shamelessly stole this list from TheChuckNorr on the old forum, who stole it from a cow on the NA forums, as it was faster than rewriting it.
Both deserve credit.

And as a request of a lvl 12 troll on the EU post: PET FLOWCHART
Spreadsheet detailing the abilities all pets have is here:

It must also be noted that these pet buffs arent intended to stack with the player equivalents. If they do, its a bug

And for those of us who like pretty graphs:
This is what to take if your raid/group is missing any specific classes/specs, and you want to maximise your raid effectiveness.

Note that that list is only a guideline, you need to adjust it for group composition. For example, 5% crit easily trumps 12% armor debuff as it benefits the entire group/raid (even healers) instead of just those that deal physical damage.
Or how as BM you will never pick silithid (+health) if a dps boost is missing, unless the tank or healer are a bit undergeared and for surivability of the tank that buff is neeed.
Love this post, the flow chart is so handy ill have to book mark it :D...now just to get every type of pet i need... lol
Though to be honest until Cata I will probabley be using my Corehound apart from when BL is on CD and my shiny Skoll the rest of the time...but Im still doing my own tests too see what (if any) pet is the best for dps...but I wouldnt be surprised if it just ends up being what ever is need/ prettiest :D.
Im finding the Core Hound (Ancient Hysteria) ability really helpful in heroic dungeons if a shaman isnt in the group, it can really turn the tide of any boss fight and im glad pets can provide benefits other than damage now.
80 Tauren Warrior
Gah im more or less oldschool when it comes to pets... iv used one ( the tiger from Winterspring), ever since i got it, and ill get it on my Worgen aswell... but i just feel the bonding feeling between hunter and pet has dissapeared.
Not wanting to be a lackluster in Raids = having to have a ton of pets... where mostly will just be randompet82, which saddens me :(
Anyway...the Cat buff is usefull, so i can get away with using it more than the others i guess :P
I have Pre-emptively updated this list for cataclysm, so I can focus on the content when it comes out
Also added in the other pets that dont necessarily provide buffs to a raid to the list at the bottom, so people who dont know where to search can find what buffs all the families provide
And Improved formatting, so its easier to read.
Please dont hesitate to post buffs or debuffs that dont appear to be on the list, Occasionally I miss stuff..
