PETMATE® GARNERS LEAD AT GLOBAL PET EXPO

 

PETMATE® WINS COVETED 2014 EDISON AWARD

 

Yep, for the World’s Most Innovative Products and Services. Petmate won the Edison Award in Lifestyles for their Travel ‘See & Extend’ Carrier, and the Edison Green Award for their success in developing sustainable solutions and green business models.

Says Larry Baab, EVP Marketing & New Product Development, “Our Spectrum facility is one of many ways Petmate helps to preserve the environment through sustainable manufacturing.”

Well, they certainly walk the talk.

Petmate® purchases and consumes 40 to 80 million pounds of post-industrial/pre-consumer plastic waste per year to create viable injection-grade plastic for their products which are made of 95% recycled material that would otherwise go to landfills. All internal scrap is recycled for future use; the corporate office recycles, too. (Italics, mine.)

Again I quote Larry Baab, who had mentioned prior to the awards, “Petmate shares the Edison Awards’ commitment to innovation with a visionary, creative-yet-practical approach to pet products.” Makes me wonder if they might have a bona-fide think tank somewhere. 😀

Take a look at the video and see how the “See & Extend” pet carrier works. This, and Petmate’s many new products are coming soon. Meanwhile, check out Petmate’s other products at Fido ‘n Fluffy’s 🙂

ITCH STOP

Drs. Foster and Smith ‘Itch Stop Series’

On my way home yesterday I saw Tiger (a neighborhood feral cat) rolling her back on the pavement. Definitely not the social roll.

No, Tiger was clearly uncomfortable. I rushed over to scratch her back. (Then it dawned on me that cats and dogs have no backscratchers like we do.)

Interestingly, I just got Doctors Foster and Smith’s catalogue in today’s mail, and noticed they have an ‘Itch Stop Series’. So today instead of inviting you over to Fido ‘n Fluffy’s website, we’re inviting you to their website so you can check out their tried and true solutions.

These veterinarians cover the whole gamut of products for all your pets skin care needs. Besides our own, they are the one and only website you can bank on. 😀 Make sure what happened to Tiger never happens with your pet, especially when you’re not there!

Punk Rock Dog Collars

*Variety is the spice of life. Does your pet have enough of it? Sometimes we get a little complacent just because our pet looks happy, is happy. But you want to be daring now and then. Not the Evel Knievel daring, but the Punk Rock Dog Collar daring! It’s the risk where 100% of the odds are all on your favor.

*(Author’s Post Addenda: Speaking of variety, I just saw a cat wearing one of these chasers, and might I say … it was so darned cute!)

There are punk rock design collars to suit pets of all shapes and sizes. Got a fancy poodle? You can do poodle punk elegance with crystals and pyramids. Got a ChiHuaHua? Try single-row crystal and spike ‘Chasers’. Got a pug? Try ‘Brutus’. How about Caucasian Ovcharkas? ‘Rodeo’ in burgundy or black would be nice.

Fido ‘n Fluffy’s wide selection of Punk Rock collars are designed and made in the USA, and we offer affordable prices at the best discount possible. C’mon, take a walk on the wild side! Or not. Just look über  cool 😀

Pet Step II

As the years go by …

Time comes when your pet can’t move around or jump about as before. Or maybe they’re just size cute and could use a little assistance.

Pet steps will make ascending easier, and for the seniors greatly minimize the stressful impact on their joints. In any case, your BFF will appreciate the gift. 🙂

Petmate Pet Step II only weigh 3 lbs., so they’re easy to carry.
