Another SUPERZOO is in the books and this one might have been the biggest ever. The Mandalay Bay conference center in Las Vegas, Nevada hosted over 10,000 retailers in the pet industry this year, many rolling out new, never-before-seen products for furred, feathered, and scaled friends.
Trends come and go in the pet industry just like any other, and walking around SUPERZOO gives an idea of what the discerning pet parent is looking for when it comes to caring for or spoiling their furry friends. These are just a few of the amazing products the iHeartDogs and iHeartCats team noticed this year.
Primal Pet Foods recognizes that there are many benefits to incorporating raw and fresh foods into your pet’s diet from an early age.

That’s why Primal only uses real, whole food ingredients – never any synthetic supplements.
