The Pet Care Trust Quality Assurance Standard for Pet Retailers is a new retail standard for the inspection of pet retailers. It sets out agreed levels of good practice. Participating retailers are independently inspected by the specially trained and qualified staff from SAI Global - one of the largest inspection and certification bodies in the world. This is the first publication in a planned series of standards to apply to a range of pet care specialists. This Quality Assurance Standard for Pet Retailers introduces a common standard for inspection that all pet retailers can follow. It is important both for retailers who sell pets and for those who sell just pet food and accessories and want to prove that their staff training, knowledge and systems are the best.The application of assessment criteria by a third party, in this case SAI Global, benefits the general public, businesses and any animals concerned as it provides the assurance of a shared standard against which retailers are inspected. The Quality Assurance Standards for Pet Retailers will give the pet-owning public reassurance about the health and welfare of the animals and about the specialist knowledge of the approved retailer.This inspection standard has been developed by the Pet Care Trust's Animal Welfare Advisory Group which is made up of pet industry experts and includes a vet, zoologist, small animal breeders, a solicitor versed in animal welfare issues and pet retailers. On the fish section the Pet Care Trust also worked closely with the Ornamental Aquatics Trade Association (OATA).

Right now, there are more pets in America than people, and many count their pets among the most beloved members of their family. However, a surprising number of pet owners are not aware that the lifestyle they provide their companions may not be a healthy one. Gary Null has helped countless Americans inprove their diets and their health with his natural approach to healthy living and scepticism of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. Now, with Natural Pet Care , he carefully and compassionately lays out the ways we can improve our pets’ health and lives. Natural Pet Care includes "Animals on the Move", which explains the importance of proper exercise, "Everybody in the Tub!", which covers natural bathing and grooming products and techniques, "The Impetuous Pet", which helps in understanding your animal’s behavior, and appendices for those seeking holistic veterinary care, pet friendly lodgings and animal friendly organizations. Natural Pet Care also provides sources for natural pet foods and products, while scrutinizing the pet food industry. He describes, for instance, that almost any dog owner would be horrified to learn what really goes into most commercial dog foods—even some of the more expensive brands—including "slaughterhouse throwaways" and diseased animal parts. As an alternative, Null offers "The Tao of Chow," in which he recommends countless natural alternatives that can easily be made at home—recipes included—and which can prolong and improve your pet's life. With this book on your reference shelf, you and your spectacular pet will be ready to tackle anything naturally! Natural Pet Care deals extensively with the health of dogs and cats, but also is devoted to other common pets, including birds, rabbits, ferrets, fish, horses, rodents, and snakes. Long overdue, Gary Null's Natural Pet Care will help pet owners provide their furry, feathered, and scaled companions with the healthy lifestyle they need and deserve.
