March 18, 2009 — -- 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.

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.

The Go Pet comes in a number of different sizes and models, starting at $248.

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.

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.

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.
