In this day and age businesses are constantly striving to design and create products and services that make consumers’ lives easier. And it appears as though our pets are not excluded from this movement. Indeed, many companies have tapped into the intense care and attention pet owners give to their furry companions. Businesses are creating weird and wonderful products and services that facilitate the bond between humans and their pets. Let’s take a look at some of these awesome inventions.
Smile, you’re on pet cam
With this device pet owners will no longer feel sad, worried or guilty about leaving their pets at home alone. The pet cam gives owners peace of mind and ensures they never miss out on any of their cute characteristics. Products of this kind are accompanied by a smart device app that allows pet owners to monitor their pets while they are at work or on the move. The more advanced versions allow users to adjust the focus of the camera from their smart devices, speak through a microphone and even video chat with pets. As an added bonus, pet cams can also be used to strengthen your security at home.
Digital veterinary services
If you are ever concerned about a change in behaviour or physical symptom, it is now possible to get advice immediately from an online vet. Many veterinary websites offer an “online chat” service where pet owners can receive helpful responses to their concerns within a short period of time. Do make sure you only use reputable sites, however, and any on-going concerns should be investigated by your regular vet. In addition to this, there are online businesses like 365 Vet that provide an online pet prescription service. And, it is now possible to buy medicines for common problems such as fleas and worms online as well as a whole host of pet paraphernalia.
Cleaning up dirty paw prints can seem like a never-ending task for most pet owners. And it’s not just dogs that are guilty of this crime. Cats, with their instincts to climb up high, spread grubby prints all over kitchen surfaces and tables. Luckily, there are now a number of products on the market that aim to deal with this issue. From mats, to special soaps, to paw baths to the incredible Paw Wash, which uses hydraulic water action, there are many effective ways to ensure your pet’s pads are kept clean.
Do you think your dog might be a bit of a couch potato at heart? The first official TV channel specifically designed for canine watchers was recently released.

The channel also aims to relax dogs and reduce their stress levels when they are at home alone. Interested? You and your dog can enjoy DogTV immediately by signing up for the online streaming service.
