WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- (Business Wire)
Central Garden & Pet Company (NASDAQ: CENT) (NASDAQ: CENTA), a leading
innovator, marketer and producer of quality branded products for the
lawn and garden and pet supplies markets is proud to announce that its
Bio Spot™ Smart Shield™ Applicator was named as the most innovative
product in the dog/cat flea and tick control category by the editors of Pet
Launched in 2012, the Bio Spot™ Smart Shield™ Applicator is a
breakthrough topical flea and tick control delivery device with an
exclusive, patent-pending design. The applicator gets fast, effective
treatment down to a pet’s skin where bugs live, while keeping the liquid
off of consumers’ hands.
The applicator delivers a more confident, secure, and easy application
of Bio Spot Defense Flea and Tick Spot On topical treatment, which
starts killing fleas and ticks in 15 minutes and helps prevent
re-infestation for up to two months. Designed with input from
veterinarians and consumers, this ground-breaking new applicator is also
the first of its kind.
“Being singled out for innovation in the highly-competitive flea and
tick category is gratifying and it’s a testament to the hard work from
several functional groups at Central Garden & Pet,” said Steve LeVeau,
Director of Marketing – Animal Health for Central Garden & Pet Company.
“From consumer insights, to manufacturing, regulatory, marketing and
sales, this was a collective effort to bring a unique delivery system to
the market that pet owners said they wanted,” LeVeau continued.
“Each year, the Pet Business editors honor innovation in the pet
care category with our Industry Recognition Awards (IRA). To find our
winners, the editors of Pet Business search through vendor press
releases, the aisles of the industry’s major trade shows and even local
pet store shelves to find the most exciting and functional products the
industry has to offer,” according to the Pet Business website.
In the 11th year of the annual Industry Recognition Awards, Pet
Business saluted the Bio Spot™ Smart Shield™ Applicator for offering
pet owners a more convenient and secure way to protect pets from fleas
and ticks and allowing the fast-acting treatment down to the pet’s skin.
