As 2018 draws to a close, we are reflecting on a great year at Slobberbones Bakery and Market and would like to thank our loyal customers who purchase their high-quality pet products from us. As we look to 2019, we are researching the latest trends in the pet industry so that we continue to bring products to our stores that our customers and their pets will love. See below for the two of the hottest trends in the pet industry for 2019!
Pet Food That Mirrors Owners’ Plates As people grow more conscious of how their food is grown, sourced, and produced, they extend their preferences to the food that they feed their pets. Owners want to feed their pets organic, high-protein, limited ingredient recipes that are higher in quality than traditional blends that you may find on a supermarket shelf. These foods help control weight gain and provide pets with the nutrition they need to help them feel their best. At Slobberbones, we carry several brands of high-quality dog and cat food. Customers can choose between Zignature, Merrick, and Fromm lines to find a varied selection of excellent food to serve their pets.
Alternative Treatments for Pet Health The use of CBD (cannabinoid) oil in products for both humans and pets has exploded over the past year and will continue to grow in popularity in 2019. CBD oil is derived from the cannabis plant, but it is non-psychoactive and will not get your pet “high.” CBD oil can help manage anxiety, stress, seizures, digestive health, and joint pain. Chattanooga-area Slobberbones locations carry CBD oil, patches, and a new exciting line of CBD-infused chews called Treatibles. Treatibles come in various flavors and introductory packs are an affordable way to try CBD products to see if they are a good fit for you and your pet.
These are just some of the pet industry trends we are monitoring in 2019. We look forward to serving you and your pet in the coming year!
