Selling Purr-fect Behavior

Traveling with a companion animal requires pet owners to plan strategically. Pet retailers that understand a customer's specific plans can help make travel less stressful for the pet and its owner.

Good oral hygiene is just as important for cats as it is for people-and pet owners are becoming more educated on exactly how much of an impact oral care can have on felines.

Secure & Stylish

Whether they are designed for use in the home or outside, pet containment products have to be both effective and attractive.

Starting from Scratch

Cat owners love that their feline friends have a wild side, but that means providing product solutions that allow cats to use their skills in a non-harmful way.

Into the Wild

Pet food manufacturers are introducing a steady stream of diets based around a wide range of exotic protein sources, arming retailers with a variety that not only appeals to the preferences of pet owners, but also meets the needs of companion animals.

Fresh Take on Litter
