About Pet Ecology Brands, Inc.

Pet Ecology Brands, Inc. has developed a revolutionary patented cat litter that destroys urine odor, clumps, and is earth-friendly. The litter is ultra-lightweight and convenient to use (3 lbs works like 21 lbs of clay/sand-based products), it is 100% flushable and safe for sewer and septic tank systems. Most importantly, it is completely safe for cats and our environment, and does not contain any sodium bentonite, as used in many competing brands. The design helps to protect the landfills, and yet does everything that clay litters do... and more. It has the ability to help indicate certain diseases commonly occurring in cats. The technique used is similar to that found in Merck's Veterinarian Manual. However, this litter not only warns of possible illness, but may also help indicate how far along the illness may be by the color the litter changes to, thereby providing the pet owner significant additional benefits and an early warning system concerning the cat's health.

Pet Ecology's K-9 Fat Free Dog Treats™ are the first fat free treats on the market that meet the standards of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and offer dog owners an effective means to provide their pets with a non-fat tasty treat. They are also cholesterol free and sodium free. According to U.S. News & World Report, "The number one health problem for dogs is obesity." Today, dogs are fed fat rich food and treats, and often get significantly less exercise than required to maintain an ideal weight and healthy condition. Overweight dogs are more prone to serious injury, skeletal stress, and the same complications that people experience with significant weight gain via fat rich diets, ranging from heart and lung problems, to skin and kidney diseases, to circulatory and immune system issues. Vit-A-Dog Fat Free Treats (soon to be available) are enriched with vitamins D & E, and will be available in chicken, beef and liver flavors.

Other products anticipated being launched by Pet Ecology Brands, Inc. include the first fat free cat treat, a low sodium and low fat microwavable gourmet cat dinner; and two cat litter product line extensions to help indicate feline pregnancy and diabetes.
