For our Pets in Summer

It is important to be aware of many products that are made in the USA for our pets in summer.

Our USA manufacturers who produce and source their pet products here are not only assuring us of higher quality and safer products for our pets, but they are also adding more to our local economy through job creation and use of our resources.

Because summer brings us much hotter than usual weather, our pets need some special attention. Those products I want to mention below are made here in the USA for our fur and feather babies.
