Looking forward to 2018? As we start winding down 2017 and as we begin 2018, the new year includes taking a look at what’s trending and what we can expect to stick around in Pet Symptoms. It’s a new year to learn more about our beloved pets and how to properly take care of them.
Start 2018 Strong With Pet Symptoms
A list of things you can do to jumpstart your year:
1. Give Your Pets Natural Products

With everyone shifting to all-natural and organic products this year, pet owners want the best for their beloved companions. Natural pet products without synthetic ingredients, harmful to animals, will surely be a trend in 2018. Aside from keeping animals safe and healthy, natural products help improve and sustain the environment.
2. Be In The Know When It Comes to Pet Food Innovation
Just like pet products, commercial food is taking a leap into the healthy side. Pet food is being developed to become organic and healthier for pets. Of course, as pet parents, it is important to think about the food your companions eat. The emergence of organic pet foods has become a thing in 2017 and it’s expected to improve in the coming years. Aside from that, pet probiotics and superfoods will be the main constituents of pet supplements.
3. Try Mobile Pet Grooming!
“I figured if there was mobile pet grooming, food trucks and mobile boutiques, then why not a mobile cat café?” said Janet Pao, creator of Moon Cat Cafe. https://t.co/SzGSqLxH6V

Well, shopping has become easier over the past years, thanks to online shops! Here’s what to expect in 2018 – pet grooming services can be done right in the comforts of your own home. Mobile pet grooming involves the use of equipped vehicles that travel to the homes of pet owners. Your dogs and cats will look groomed, prepped and clean right outside your door. There’s no need for you and your pet to travel away from home. This new trend is convenient, reduces the possible stress of travel on the pets and it’s perfect for the elderly customers who have companion pets.
4. Get Pet Insurance
You’ve heard it right. In 2018, you can expect insurance companies offering policies for your beloved pet companions. Although it has been present for about three decades now, pet insurance has recently appeared on the limelight and is becoming more popular by the minute. This trend is expected to boom even more in the coming year because owners have increasingly regarded their pets as beloved family members.
5. DIY Pet Food

Do-it-yourself things are in demand over the past years and will continue to gain more popularity in 2018. Now, pet owners are trying DIY pet food to save more on pet food expenses and provide the needed nourishment their pets should have. They often start by enhancing meals with several additions like sauces, toppers, and spray-nutrients. Others, on the other hand, make their pet’s meals from scratch.
6. Pet-Friendly Travels
Since more people are treating their pets as beloved family members, we can expect to see more travels in 2018. In line with this, various travel apps have now become pet-friendly, directing customers to places where their pets are most welcome. Moreover, hotels and resorts are now allowing pets to check-in with their owners.
7. Pet Technology
