News — Internet Popularity Among Pet Owners a Big Plus

    Packaged Facts estimates that the Internet is the fastest growing sales venue for pet products in the United States, with sales expected to surpass $1 billion by 2012.

This is especially good news for "info-centric" health products, which are already heavily represented on the Internet, reflecting the grass-roots origins of many such products as well as the ability of the Internet to communicate product benefits with detailed information. The Internet is also important because it hosts a virtual community of pet devotees who exchange pet product ideas and product tips through Web sites, chat groups, blogs, and e-mail.
