Global Pet Expo 2018 Day 2: All The Fab Fur

Day Two of the Global Pet Expo is a wrap, and we had just as much fun as we did yesterday finding great new products and meeting lots of awesome pets!

I won’t lie; I get sucked into the booths with all the doggies and the kitties and could pretty much stay in those booths all day long.

But…if I stayed with them, I’d miss out on some of the cool stuff I saw (and learned). I mean…who sees superheroes every day? The folks at Hero Pet Brands got together to tell how they give proceeds from every purchase of their products to support foster pet organizations all over the United States.

Like these products from EcoSmart. They’re a natural line of products for skin issues and even better? They have a line of products that are safe for home use as well. No one wants to use Roundup in their yards–not good for the environment and certainly not their pets. So EcoSmart’s yard insecticide is all natural and safe for people and pets.

As I walk around, I look for things that my pups and family would find useful, so I loved coming up on these GlycoFlex chews. They’ve been clinically proven to improve hind leg strength after four weeks of treatment and since we had to amputate Dixie’s leg last year, I’m excited to see how these make a difference in her life.

I made a few stops for puppies….the real and not-so real (but just as adorable!) kind. These Flipazoo stuffies are so much fun, and let kiddos and adults will love having two pets in one. And, not to leave the furbabies out, they also have Flipazoo toys with squeakers!

Some gorgeous fish caught also caught my eye…

And while visiting the folks at Segrest Farms, caught the Easter Bunny, a bit early. Okay, maybe not the Easter Bunny, but still oh-so-cute!

I also came across some fun treat games from FerPlast, perfect for any cat or dog (ahem, my puppy) that needs some entertainment and engagement from a treat dispenser. I love that these will make a dog or cat work for their treat, as many like to do, but without the noise that lots of puzzle-type treat dispensers do-which scares many pets.

On my way to put my barking dogs up for the day, I passed by the folks at Nilodor and found the most amazing new product to debut in April: a Fur Mask with Dead Sea Clay. It’s designed to be therapeutic for your dogs–and I’m thinking with how amazingly soft it was, it’ll be amazing for older dogs’ dry skin and chestnuts. I tried a little on my hands, and they’re still soft as can be!

As we wrapped up the day, Amy found a unicorn house, and I left still thinking about those puppies! I have a penchant for adopting dogs from the Global Pet Expo so we’ll see what the last day brings–maybe a a new family member?
