Pamper Your Pets: Hottest New Toys

Nowadays there are more options than ever to pamper your pup, cherish your cat and treat all of your animals.

In fact, Americans spend $41 billion a year on their pets – that's more than they spend on going to the movies, playing video games and listening to recorded music combined.

Veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker showed off all the hottest new pet products straight from the recent Global Pet Expo in San Diego.
