Natural Pet Products

Aug 1, 2009

The pet industry is a multi billion dollar a year industry and you don't have to have a pet store to take advantage of selling to these pet owners. There are many stores during any time of year that could be increasing their sales just by adding natural pet products. Pet owners are looking all over for a variety of products from vitamins and food, to treats and shampoos. When it comes to pets, the trends are starting to move towards a more natural, less chemical product, especially when talking about products that will be ingested.

If your store sells food, you can start catering to a whole new market. Educate your buyers to everyday products that are green and natural subtitles for some of their pets nutritional needs, without having to do anything except move around some existing product: regular cottage cheese, sardines (low sodium), canned pumpkin, plain yogurt, baked or blanched sweet potatoes or yams, lentils, garbanzos beans, brown rice and some veggies. Providing educational pamphlets would also go a long way to creating a good relationship with these new customers.

Other stores like pharmacies, HBA, variety or C-stores can add market share by selling dry products like natural tea packs, skin detox, herbal salves or even tooth oils for pets. Since buyers will look for the best types of products for their pets, they will come back. Companies like, Snooks Pet Products, supplies stores with not only green and natural pet remedies and natural chews but also advice on how to set up your new program.

It only takes a couple of hot new items to start increasing your profits and let your clients know, not only do you care about the environment, but you also care about offering natural pet products for their furry family members.

Remember when figuring out what green products to carry in your store, most people in the United States take better care of their pets then they do of themselves, so whether you are starting to bring green and natural products to your store or you are adding to an existing line, natural pet products is an extremely lucrative market to head into.
