Quick! Take a glance around your home. How many pet-related products do you see? If you’re like me, you’re surrounded by bowls, beds, treats, toys and other items that make your pet’s life healthier and happier.

Now imagine walking into 311,000 square-feet filled to the brim with thousands and thousands of cute, fun and helpful pet products. That was my experience recently when I attended the Global Pet Expo (GPE) in Orlando, Florida.

Each year, for three action-packed days, manufacturers, buyers and the media gather to check out the latest trends and hottest new pet products. This year was the biggest event yet, with over 1,000 exhibitors, 3,000 product launches and 15,000 attendees!

Needless to say, GPE is THE place to be if you want to sniff out new innovations designed for the comfort, safety and health of your pet. Unfortunately, it’s not open to the public – but wait – you’re in luck! Check out the video above for an exclusive glimpse inside the expo, meet an adorable new four-legged friend of mine, and get a sneak peek at these exciting pet-perfect products:

So, what was your favorite pet product?

  • My favorite pet product is the heated beds for those cold winter months. I love that my cats have something warm to lay on.

    I would like to ask a question about another product though…………the Pet Action Plus flea and tick product…..why is it we are unable to find out what the “other ingredients….78.4%” consist of?????? Is it safe for my cats????? I bought it but after calling the company to ask this question and they being unable to tell me, I’m afraid to treat my cats with it! I would very much like other opinions.

    • Hi Doris. Have you asked your veterinarian about Pet Action Plus? I find that concerning that you can’t get answers from the package or the company. I would not use it until you speak to a vet about it. You are a smart cookie to be asking questions!
