Retailer's Top Pick (http://www.petproductnews.com/
award for the brand’s top-selling Hip Action (http://www.zukes.com/
treats. Zuke’s Hip Action treats, created to help maintain hip and joint function, earned first place as the top voted snack in the dog-edible product category. The second annual Retailer’s Top Pick award featured 14 pet product categories in which Pet Product News International
readers voted on, including best cat, dog and bird items.
“Hip Action is a key treat in our product line that is central to our brand’s commitment to get outside and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle with our dogs,” said Zuke’s Marketing Manager, Grant Berry. “Achieving such an award from one of the top trade publication in the pet industry is an honor and further validates our commitment as a brand.”
Zuke’s Hip Action treats contain a powerful, natural combination of glucosamine, chondroitin, wholefood antioxidants and eggshell membrane to create a delicious, moist, meaty treat making it easy to feed dogs, instead of a messy powder or and hard-to-feed pill supplement. It is the perfect daily snack with a taste dogs love to support healthy joint and hip function so owners and their pets can enjoy activities together for years to come.
Zuke’s is touched by the compliment of this award and would like to extend their gratitude to all the unwavering support of their loyal customers and retailers. By selling and purchasing Zuke’s products, customers and retailers are not only supporting healthy treats for pets, but also the lives of cats and dogs with cancer.
