Mendes’s upcoming presentation comes on the heels of a similar presentation by Kathleen Homyock, OPCO’s vice president of sales and business development, at last month’s National Pet Industry Trade Show hosted by the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) Canada. In her presentation, titled ‘Technology Translated to Pet Fitness, Food and Fun’, Homyock offered an in-depth look at how intelligent technology accessories can help pet owners more effectively monitor the health and wellbeing of their pets. These benefits are at the core of the company’s Intelligent Pet Care™ product line, including the SmartScoop – Intelligent Litter Box (http://dtn.fm/7eSSn
), the SmartLink Feeder – Intelligent Pet Bowl (http://dtn.fm/8rEpu
) and the SmartLink Waterer – Intelligent Water Fountain (http://dtn.fm/6NllS
“It is always interesting to speak with industry professionals about how smart technology is changing pet products,” Homyock stated in a recent news release. “I was excited to have the opportunity to speak at the show in September and I am even more excited to work for a company that values this technology and continuously works to bring intelligent health and fitness monitoring products into the marketplace.”
OurPet’s Company’s commitment to innovation doesn’t end with its Intelligent Pet Care™ product line. According to data from the American Pet Products Association, there are currently about 175 million companion dogs and cats in the United States alone, with roughly 650 million worldwide. The growth of the pet population in recent years has led to pet waste becoming a significant environmental concern, with companion dogs producing roughly 10 million tons of waste annually in the U.S. OurPet’s Company is currently focused on creating environmentally-friendly solutions to the growing problem. Through a new partnership with Paulee Cleantec, Ltd., OurPet’s Company aims to develop and commercialize innovative solutions to the environmental issues stemming from improperly managed pet waste.
