8 Bird Accessories to Get Customers Atwitter

Give bird accessories the room they need and be grateful you don’t have to stock toys for the likes of Squawkzilla.




BIRDS USED TO BE huge — 3 feet tall is the new record with Heracles Inexpectatus, discovered earlier this year by New Zealand scientists. It’s always a struggle to fit bird products in among miles of dog foods and aisle of cat litter, but since we live in a time when birds are tamed and much tinier, give bird accessories the room they need and be grateful you don’t have to stock toys for the likes of Squawkzilla.

NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
