“Global” is the annual pet expo where around 800 international vendors gather to spotlight their hot new products for pets to the trade. Held in Orlando Florida at a convention hall so big it would take days to really see what was on offer, Animal Cafe had an “in” – our friend and pet products expert Carol Bryant spent some time at Global so we picked her brain in this interview to get the lowdown on the show and also a paw full of products I think you’ll like!
Ketchup and mustard for dogs and cats was a very cleverly packaged eye-catcher, dispensing liquid vitamins for your pet pals. There’s also a great little gadget that lets you embed the dreaded, hopefully occasional pill your dog or cat needs into food that comes with it.
There’s news about a flexible bandage that even has a video to show you how to protect awkward areas. The bandage has no adhesive and the gauze is attached for ease of use.
A new offering from Kong for powerful chewers, and the last, a pre-biotic oral care agent that you add to a meal once a day to rid the dog of bacteria that causes bad breath. Carol swears that her dog Dexter looks like he’s had a whitening treatment=) And for the “a little bit weird” file, that same company has a product for humans! Maybe a way to save a little cash and still have whiter, brighter teeth?
Enjoy the podcast – drop by and say “hi” to Carol at her own blog, Fidose of Reality.
