The Best New Pet Products

Dog treadmill

Are you looking for new toys, products and ideas to make your pet's life easier and more comfortable? Veterinarian Marty Becker hit the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Fla., last month, the industry's largest annual trade show, and discusses some of his favorite new products.

Go Pet

The problem of pet obesity is on the rise. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention reports that nearly half the nation's pets are classified as overweight or obese and the Go Pet is intended to change that by getting your pet in gear. Just like a treadmill for a human or a wheel for a hamster, the Go Pet is an exercise wheel for dogs.

The freestanding wheel lets the dog walk or run for miles. It's perfect for a plump puppy, especially one that lives in an apartment or with an owner who can't take the pet out as much has needed.

To Go Bowl Car Cupholder

If you like to take your pals on the road with you, the To Go Bowl is a good way to carry water and treats in the car. Instead of making your pet wait until you stop to get some water, this water bowl fits into your cup holder.

Plus, the cup part of the bowl can keep treats, so that everything you need to keep your pet happy on a long car trip is right at your fingertips. And you can take it out and put it on the ground as well when you do make that rest stop. It comes in small, medium and large sizes, starting at $19.95.

Veterinary Drinkwell 360

When you're home, the Drinkwell 360 fountain is a great way to provide fresh, clean water to your dogs and cats, especially if you have more than one. The clever thing here is that you can set multiple spouts at different levels — giving all your pets a chance at the water without their having to jostle for position. And it comes apart for easy cleaning. It costs $64.99.

Frolicat Bolt

The Frolicat Bolt keeps pets active and playing. It's an interactive laser toy that creates laser patterns for your pet to chase, pounce on and bat around.

Just don't use it near the good china, and you'll all have a great time for $19.95.

Polly Wanna Piñata

No party is complete without a pinata. And why should birds be left out?

Birds need to chew, not only because it's entertaining but because it helps them maintain their beaks. Bird owners know what happens when birds don't have a something to chew on — watch out for furniture or anything they can get their beaks on.

Polly Wanna Pinatas come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be filled with treats or you can fill them yourself. They cost: $7.49.

Ecotrition Bird Snak Shaks

And there are the Ecotrition Snak Shaks — 100 percent edible hideaways for small animals.

Made with fresh alfalfa and golden honey, they give the birds a place to hide and are a great-tasting treat. They come in a range of sizes, starting at $14.99.

Sweet Feet & Beak Perch

And let's say that your bird is in the mood for a spa day. The Sweet Feet & Beak Perch easily hooks onto the side of your bird cage and serves double duty. It gives your bird a perch while keeping its nails and beak trim and healthy.
