Innovations in Pet Products

We LOVE new products and we're gearing up for this years Total Pet Expo by reviewing some of the most innovative products from the past year.  First up, let's see what fun products won at last year's Total Pet Expo.

Innovation Gold Medal Winner
Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Snoop puzzle ball
 This toy (shown with bones in the orange one and a 2.5” Orbee-Tuff® ball (not included) in the blue one) has a deep crevice  around the opening to keep treats concealed.  While I like that this toy is non-toxic, recyclable and 100% guaranteed, I don't like that it is not rated for durability.  The website says "
This toy is intended for puzzle-play, not chewing, so it is not rated on our Durability scale."  In my book, a toy that you are going to stuff with treats may possibly some heavy chewing.  Having interacted with this toy before, it is very squishy and would NOT hold up in our house.

Innovation Silver Medal Winner
Krocodile® – Pill Splitter and Crusher
 Krocodile Pill Splitter and Crusher
Not sure I would pay $40 for a pill splitter when they are less than $10 at the pharmacy.  A "unique" draw to this one is that they offer Kroc Belly pouches for use when crushing to eliminate cross-contamination if you are crushing multiple Rx with the same device.
