Accidents Erased! BISSELL SpotBot® Pet Portable Deep-Cleaning System!
So Fido’s had an accident on the carpet. Upset tummy? You got home late? A housetraining slip? Accidents happen now and then. You know he’s feeling pretty down about it. Don’t make him feel even guiltier by getting down on your hands and knees and scrubbing for hours to remove it. Instead, take out the BISSELL SpotBot Pet, place it over the stain, and let it do the work for you! It cleans carpets from the bottom up, with an ‘Automatic Smart System’ that senses just the right amount of cleaner and water (and suction) necessary to do the job. Spiral brushes dig deep and suction cleans up the mess. It also has attachments so you can use it in the car or on stairs. Carpets plus pets mean the occasional mess. Set the BISSELL SpotBot Pet to work and the carpet will be stain-free. Just think how relieved Fido will be!
In the spirit of holiday giving, for every new SpotBot Pet purchased and activated online at www.bissell.com/savepets through 12/31/12, the company will donate $20 to the BISSELL Pet Foundation to help homeless pets.

Working with newly-developed Celliant® material, Draper created a line of clinically proven therapeutic products for humans, canines, felines, and equines.

The results of wearing and laying on products made with Celliant is increased oxygenation and better blood flow, which means less joint inflammation and pain.

The Perfect Pet Shower System!
This just might be the best gift ever for Fido’s family! If bath time is a messy hassle, get The Rinse Ace® 3-Way Pet Shower Sprayer and it will be easy and enjoyable instead.

Then, when it’s bath time for pup, you simply attach the Shower Sprayer (with its 8-foot hose!) and voila! Let bathing begin!

Keep the Plastic Out of the Poop: Use BioBags Instead!
What do you do with Fido’s poo? If you use plastic bags, you’re adding a whole lot of plastic to our landfills. Check out BioBags for a brilliant, responsible alternative.

They work with the earth, naturally degrading, along with the contents of the bag.
