Kaytee Introduces 20 New Products to Small Animal Lineup




(press release) CHILTON, WI – Kaytee announces the launch of more than 20 new offerings to its industry-leading portfolio of small animal pet products in the U.S. The expansion is highlighted by the introduction of the Kaytee CritterTrailSUPER Habitat, the first habitat of its kind in the U.S. designed specifically for larger breeds of small animal pets such as Syrian hamsters.
