Crafty Ponies horse cuddle + instruction booklet was named overall winner of the Horses Product of the Year election tonight. At the festive award ceremony at Van der Valk Hotel Apeldoorn-De Cantharel, this educational horse hug emerged as the best product of all 63 nominated products and services. “The quality exudes from it, a great concept,” the jury said.

Category Services & Knowledge

Crafty Ponies horse hug + instruction booklet first came out as the best in the Services & Knowledge category. When the overall winner was announced from all ten category winners, Rob Wip, the man behind Crafty Ponies Netherlands, was once again allowed to take the podium.
With Crafty Ponies, children can learn more about ponies and horses in a playful way. This is done through realistic miniature horse hugs, grooming and equipment sets, but also with the help of online videos and pony lessons in the Crafty Ponies Pony Club. The public thinks this product is a wonderful way to introduce children to the care and treatment of horses in a playful way. The enthusiastic professional jury gave Crafty Ponies a unanimous ten for innovation and appearance.

“Wow! Really incredibly cool! ”, Responds Rob Wip, the man behind Crafty Ponies Netherlands. “Our horse hugs are focused on knowledge, to teach children from an early age how to deal with horses. We focus a lot on safety. We have spent months and months making everything right. Because we want to teach children everything the right way! It is very cool to win these prizes with that now! ”

The book “Think first, then save!” Came in second in this category. In this book, former firefighter Harko Kwakernaat shares his forty years of experience in rescuing horses from emergencies. The public finds this book groundbreaking with practice-oriented information and the jury praises it for its employability and innovative character.
Find your Buitenrit, a platform for finding and reserving outrides, came third.

Category Training

Team by Jill, the online platform of international Grand Prix rider Jill Huijbregts, won the award in the Training category. Through instructional videos, Jill Huijbregts gives online dressage training for anyone who wants to develop in equestrian sports, from beginner to Grand Prix. The public is enthusiastic about its educational videos with clear explanations. The jury judges this service as a well-applied concept in the dressage world with broad accessibility.

Jill Huijbregts appears on stage with a big smile. “I’m not used to telling anything without a horse! I started as a little girl at the riding school and eventually, through a very big dream, I grew up as an international rider. Very often I was asked if I wanted to teach other riders. And that is why I came up with something that is very widely accessible and educational for the general public. “

One Switch Equestrian Coaching coaches riders from all disciplines in the field of equestrian vitality and thus achieved second place. With guidance in the field of rider-specific training, nutrition, work-rest ratio and mental well-being, the enthusiastic One Switch team makes a difference for riders on both a technical and personal level. The jury therefore considers this service to be a good, affordable supplement for riders.
Third came SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads, an innovative way to increase the balance and movement of your horse. By placing the horse on different SURE FOOT stability / balance pads, a new consciousness is activated in the horse’s brain.

Category From the tack room – saddles

The Graziozo saddle with pelvic analysis is the best in the category From the tack room saddles. This innovative dressage saddle has been developed to create an optimal pelvic position and mobility. Together with the physiotherapist / pelvic specialist, a computer pelvic analysis can be made to gain a better insight into where the points for improvement lie. And the specially developed tree contributes to more freedom of movement for the horse. Consumers are very enthusiastic about the service and notice a positive difference in their own attitude. The professional jury finds the saddle with the analysis a great combination.

“A good start to your sitting starts with your saddle and the balance and stability of you as a rider. That is why we have involved the flexchair with the Graziozo saddles to make the saddle fit perfectly. Of course we also adjust the saddle to the horse to complete the puzzle ”, says co-developer, physical therapist and Heavy Tour rider Dimphy van Oss.

Dressage saddle Rococco was the number two in this category. This saddle has a high positioned knee and thighs to support the rider even better. To maximize the comfort of the horse, the tree has been developed according to the latest knowledge. Consumers praise this saddle for its good location and beautiful finish. The jury believes that the broader twist responds to the demand of many combinations.
Third came Build My Baines, an application that gives you as a rider the opportunity to compile your handmade Frank Baines saddle completely yourself.

Category From the tack room – other

In the category From the tack room – other, the anatomical bar and bar bridle Equitus Gamma received the highest rating. The curved noseband bypasses the sensitive nerve at the head. The bite bit is attached to the noseband with a button nail and the rod is attached to the extended baking pieces, so that the bits lie more stable in the horse’s mouth. The public is very enthusiastic about this contribution to horse welfare. The jury believes that this anatomical bridle has a beautiful appearance and appreciates the innovative cooperation with the faculty in Berlin during the development.

“The anatomical bridle bridle is already known, and we also wanted to realize this with a bar and bridle bridle. That is more complicated than with a bridle bridle and we have developed this bridle together with the faculty in Berlin, “said Patrick Jurriens, representative of Schockemöhle Sports.

The Kettner Clip was second in this category. This innovative bridle number tightens itself securely by simply sliding the clip onto the cover or the bridle. A nice and solid product, according to jury and public.
Third was the bridle TB Pro, which is designed to minimize strain on the horse’s head.

Category Care – health

Werkman BLACK was head and shoulders above the other products in the Healthcare – Health category. With this mobile gait analysis system for farriers it is possible to monitor gait change over a horse over time. High-precision sensors digitally record the smallest hoof movements and convert them into a 3D animation with easy-to-interpret overviews. Both the public and the jury label Werkman BLACK as a valuable addition to the farrier.

Christel Werkman: “With this we think we have a revolution for farriers. It has been developed together with farriers and has therefore become very easy to use. “

High Power Laser, a device with which high power laser therapy can be carried out, took second place. The use of red and infrared light can promote the recovery of wounds and injuries and alleviate chronic or acute pain. The jury believes that this laser has a good price-quality ratio.
Third was the Magnetic blanket of Magnetic Healthcare. The magnets in this blanket are stitched in the neck and back around important muscle groups, which can improve blood circulation. The jury is enthusiastic about the quality of this magnetic blanket.

Category Care – other

The Kettner Plaiting Kit is very useful if you are braiding your horse and is therefore the winner of the Other care category. This handmade braid bag made of genuine cow leather is a handy solution for anyone who wants to braid his horse easily and quickly, because you have it practically at hand. Consumers call this braid bag practical and fashionable and the jury describes it as an efficient product.

“I really did not expect to win! Many people put their horse’s braids in their pockets and then they lose things or fall to the ground. The Plaiting Kit has all the handy compartments for all braid stuff, with which you can work very well, “says Elise Kettner.

Leovet Leather care product, a very complete leather care line, finished second. The products from this line are free from petroleum and contain high-quality fats and oils to ensure that the leather remains smooth and beautiful. The jury is enthusiastic about the focus on sustainability.

Category Equestrian equipment

The award in the Equestrian Equipment category went to uvex elexxion. The built-in shell and hardshell are the two most important technologies in this riding helmet, creating a lightweight helmet with the highest impact resistance. The helmet’s individually adjustable shield ventilation system keeps your head cool and is an absolute lightweight at 460 grams. The audience is very enthusiastic about the light weight, the good fit and the good quality. The jury finds it interesting how two techniques merge into one helmet and describes the product as a safe, beautiful helmet with a good price-quality ratio.

Patrick Jurriens, representative of uvex: “This helmet has only been on the market for about four months and is already very well received. Great to also win this prize! ”

Second place in this category was also won by a product from uvex, namely the crx 700 glove. The functional materials on the palm ensure high functionality while driving. Thanks to the Schoeller® softshell, these riding gloves are ideal in wind, humidity and cold. Consumers praise these gloves for their good grip.
Quick Jodphurs & Easy Chaps from Sergio Grasso finished third. This riding footwear is environmentally friendly and made with innovative, high-quality and non-animal materials.

Category In and around the stable

In the category In and around the barn, the Aqua2Go mobile competition shower won the prize. An ideal shower for taking summers with you on competitions, but also for spraying your horse with warm water in the winter. Thanks to the adjustable spray position, the Aqua2Go can be used for both the horse, the driving cart and trailer. Consumers find the product super handy and user-friendly. The jury finds the shower very well thought out and innovative.

“A little hobby of mine created this product. And now it has become a very handy shower for competitions! ”, Says Alfred Mulder, who is standing on the stage smiling.

In second place is the Dekenhoes, which was developed to protect a horse blanket against dirt, moisture and to minimize the spread of diseases and fungi. There are two models: one for the blanket racks on larger stables and one for the suspension brackets mounted on barn doors or in the trailer. Consumers are happy that the blankets with this product remain dust-free, clean and tidy.
The MAYO Horse mattress became third. With this hygienic surface, substantial savings on the costs of the litter are possible. The soft structure and compressibility of MAYO products offer maximum grip in all circumstances.

Category Supplements

The award in the Supplements category came in the name of Phytonics Gluco balance. This supplement focuses on healthy sugar management. In horses with a lot of fat storage, always hungry and never satisfied or having to be in the danger zone, the glucose balance is possible, due to an excess of sugars in food. Gluco balance can help to get the sugar balance in the body back in the right direction. It contains herbs, minerals and vitamins for a good function of the stomach and pancreas and supports the cleansing effect of the liver, the hormonal balance and the conversion processes in the body. Consumers are enthusiastic about the results achieved. The professional jury calls the supplement a proven product with good results.

“We see that horses get a lot of sugars through food and grass. This supplement can be regulated better with this supplement. It ensures that the glucose can be better absorbed into the cells, “says Irene Rol, the director / owner of Phytonics (NML Health).

Bonpard Resistance won second place in this category. This supplement has been specially developed for horses that lack resistance, such as horses with itching, skin bumps, mug, eczema or an autumn dip. Bonpard Resistance has been compiled on the basis of scientific knowledge by veterinarian and animal nutrition specialist Anneke Hallebeek. Consumers have many positive user experiences and appreciate the scientific basis. The jury points out the social relevance by guarantee via the vet as a positive point.
Natural’Digest, a prebiotic that is used for an improved intestinal flora, came third. This supplement acts as a buffer in the stomach, which reduces stomach ulcers.

Category Enter

Pavo FiberBeet was unbeatable in the Feed category. Pavo FiberBeet has been specially developed for conditional horses and ponies. It is a carefully assembled combination of SpeediBeet (beet pulp flakes), alfalfa and highly digestible fibers from soybean hulls with a touch of Fenugreek (fenugreek) for the palatability. The product is completely grain-free and also contains a very low sugar and starch content. The public describes Pavo FiberBeet as a high-quality product that is quick and easy to prepare. The jury appreciates that the product is very well developed in consultation with the target group and also sees the quick preparation as an advantage.

“FiberBeet has been developed to bring horses back to weight in a healthy way. Because we have a lot to do with older horses that are difficult to maintain their weight and suffer from sugars ”, says content manager at Pavo Liselotte Bosch and food advisor Ragne Verhoeven.

OerBalans became second in the Feed category. This product is full of herbs, vitamins and minerals for your horse. They contain fibers and substances that support digestive processes, waste disposal and the overall metabolism. Consumers notice that horses are literally better in their own skin and fur and use it as a nice addition. The jury also sees it as a good product.
EquilinGROW – “Feeding the new” became third. Current statistics on horses with colic, stomach ulcers and stereotyped behavior confirm that at least 1.5% of the body weight in dry matter (DS) of fiber / roughage per day must be given to prevent this. From the age of one year, horses have no extra need for energy, with sufficient suitable roughage. There is, however, a need for easily absorbable minerals, good proteins, natural vitamin E and probiotics, which EquilinGROW provides.

Nestlé: dividend increase of over 10% is strongest since 2010 – buy it! Stock Analysis (Vontobel Research) | Shares of the day – Insurance for Pets

Zurich ( – Nestlé stock analysis by analyst Jean-Philippe Bertschy from Vontobel Research:

Jean-Philippe Bertschy, stock analyst at Vontobel Research, continues to advise in a recent stock analysis to buy the share of the food company Nestlé S.A. (ISIN: CH0038863350, WKN: A0Q4DC, ticker symbol: NESR, SIX Swiss Ex: NESN, Nasdaq OTC symbol: NSRGF).

Organic growth met expectations: 3.5% organic growth with a RIG of 2.9% and a price level of 0.6%. Except for the Waters division, which had a strong 4Q, all regions and departments had met analyst expectations with regard to RIG and prices.

Margin +60 bp: This corresponds to the analyst’s forecast. Here, too, there are hardly any differences compared to given analyst expectations; the exception is Waters, where there has been a slight decline offset by PetCare’s continued strong profitability. The underlying EPS forecast increased by 11.1% in constant W., a strong performance.

Only cash is true: The strong free cash flow rose by 10.9% to a record level of 11.9 billion or 12.9% of sales, an increase of 250 bp compared to the FY17. Main reasons: more effective investments and an inflow of working capital (VontE: outflow). The ROIC rose by 20 bp to 12.3%.

All projects on track: Sale of the US ice cream business on January 31 completed (analyst forecast: March 31); Exit from the US DSD business (pizza and ice cream) six months earlier than planned.

Outlook for 2020: Increase in organic sales growth (against consensus expectations of 3.9%), margin improvement (consensus: +60 bp), restructuring costs of CHF 500 million; it was too early to quantify the financial impact of the coronavirus.

Investors could now focus on slightly lower organic growth and the operating profit margin. Bertschy would rather highlight the underlying sustainable improvements over the past year. All projects are on track. Since 2017, over 50 transactions have been carried out, which corresponds to 12% of sales and a contribution of 35 bp to organic growth in FY19: This demonstrates highly efficient portfolio management. In addition, Nestlé anticipates a stable free cash flow as a percentage of sales of 12% and an ROIC that will increase towards 15%. The case is far from being discussed.

Jean-Philippe Bertschy, Vontobel Research stock analyst, confirms his “buy” rating for the Nestlé stock. The target price was CHF 116.00. (Analysis from February 13th, 2020)

The RN flirts with animal friends – Insurance for Pets

Marine Le Pen on a market, February 8, 2020, in Saint-André-de-Cubzac. – UGO AMEZ / SIPA

  • In its program common to all its candidates in the municipal elections, the National Gathering proposes to establish a mutual insurance company for pets at reduced prices.
  • If the measure is out of place among the RN’s program for municipalities, focused on taxation and security, Marine Le Pen’s party has nonetheless taken hold of the animal cause for a few years, in particular since 2016.
  • By talking to animal friends, the RN addresses a large reservoir of voices, and supports an evolution of society, more sensitive to animal welfare.

Marine Le Pen’s party, which is lacking in local roots, takes municipal elections very seriously. To conquer beyond the ten cities it has managed since 2014, the National Gathering is focusing in particular on animals, or rather their owners. Unveiled during the presentation of the movement’s strategy for the ballot on January 12, an explosive proposal among the program common to all aspiring RN mayors. Between promises not to increase local taxes and to fight crime, the party thus undertakes to negotiate a mutual insurance company for pets, which would be offered to citizens at prices below those of the market. This measure allows him to target a potential electorate of several million people, with a consensual theme.

A Poitevin initiative

The idea was born in Buxerolles, in the northern suburbs of Poitiers, in September, and more precisely in the mind of Arnaud Fage, head of the RN list at the municipal level. “Going door to door, I found that many people were suffering from isolation, and that their companion was a pet. This comes at a cost, and these isolated people often have little or no means, ”says the nurse.

The 30-year-old then imagines, on the model of municipal mutuals, to negotiate for his constituents, if he becomes mayor, a grouped tariff for animal mutual insurance. “The town hall plays the role of intermediary, it negotiates the tariff, subscribes, but it is not there to pay for the insurance. It costs zero euros, just the cost of a form to survey residents and find out how many are interested, “said the 30-year-old owner of five cats.

A voice reservoir

What he did by distributing a thousand leaflets in the town of 10,000 inhabitants in October.

The initiative did not go unnoticed at the RN. In November, during a meeting at HQ in Nanterre, Arnaud Fage, as departmental manager for Vienne, presented his campaign promise to Marine Le Pen, who also lives with several cats. “She thought it was a great idea and asked me to show her my leaflets, my visuals,” remembers the RN executive. The promise of a mutual for animals was finally found in the joint program for the municipal authorities, and defended by all the RN candidates, in Maubeuge or
Quimper for example.

The potential voice reservoir certainly has a lot to do with it. “One in two households has at least one pet,” recalls Daniel Boy, director of research at Sciences Po Paris. “It is an electorate whose sociology is very varied, and which the parties do not address, with the exception of the Animalist Party and environmentalists.” More broadly, six out of ten French people say that measures for the animal cause would encourage them to vote for a municipal candidate, according to a survey carried out in January by Ifop for the 30 million Friends Foundation. The party thus follows “an evolution of society, more attentive to questions related to animal welfare, which are more publicized”, observes the researcher.
The breakthrough of the very young Animalist Party in the European elections in May 2019 illustrates this development.

Marine Le Pen, animal lover

Without counting the benefits in terms of image: “defending the animal cause can also participate in a form of demonization because the subject is consensual and sympathetic”, underlines Daniel Boy.

For several years, the president of RN has put forward (and staged) her love for animals (and especially cats), both in her positions and her pages on social networks. “I see how much she loves animals,” says Annika Bruna, MEP, who “personally” knows the president of RN. “She has a special affection for cats and in fact has several in her home.” Presidential candidate, she had also dedicated part of her

program in 2017 for “animal welfare”, which she wanted to make a “national priority”. The theme also makes it possible to approach very political subjects: it is by denouncing “animal suffering” that Marine Le Pen takes it out on
“Halal slaughter” and “the import of agricultural products that do not meet French animal welfare standards”.

For the municipal election, the RN relies more on pets than on questions of breeding or pesticides. “This is a more consensual theme, which does not offend the agricultural electorate,” adds Daniel Boy. “We can take voices without losing them”. Sunday, Marine Le Pen announced on Twitter to support the creation of shelters for stray cats for municipal. “Our mayors have set an example in terms of animal welfare,” says Annika Bruna, citing an open refuge in Hayange and Villers-Cotterêts, or an educational farm in Mantes-la-ville.

But other parties are also taking up this theme. On February 6, the president of the Ile-de-France region, the ex-LR Valérie Pécresse, presented a plan for animals, providing for “a permit to adopt”, financial aid for shelters or dedicated spaces for pets and an “animal friendly city” label. “We have been defending the animal cause for a long time and not only in the context of municipal elections,” says Annika Bruna. At RN, they claim to have been “avant-garde in this field”.

can pets transmit the disease? – Insurance for Pets

According to the WHO, “there is no evidence” that dogs or cats can be infected with the new coronavirus. Experts interviewed by franceinfo confirm that crossing the “species barrier” is rare.

They are collateral victims of the 2019-nCoV coronavirus epidemic. In China and especially in Wuhan, pets have been abandoned by their owners. These dogs and cats have been locked up for days in their house or apartment, left to their own devices. Their owners have largely left for the Lunar New Year holidays and the quarantine imposed on the megalopolis prevents them from returning.

The Wuhan Small Animal Protection Association reports on its Facebook page that it has already rescued more than 600 of these pets. Volunteers sometimes display treasures of ingenuity to help them.

But at the same time, the rumor of dogs and cats killed in the middle of the street for fear that they would transmit the disease has spread on social networks, bloody photos in support. The images of dogs with a protective mask on the muzzle are increasing. Faced with psychosis, a question arises: can pets be infected with this new coronavirus and in turn contaminate the humans with whom they keep company?

A major obstacle stands in the way of the virus: “the species barrier”, explains to franceinfo Olivier Bouchaud, doctor in the service of infectious and tropical diseases of the Avicenne hospital in Bobigny. “This barrier is not insurmountable, since it is likely that an animal is at the origin of the transmission [du coronavirus 2019-nCoV] to the man, Recognizes the doctor.

According to a hypothesis on which Chinese scientists are working, but which remains to be confirmed, the new coronavirus could come from a bat and a small mammal, the pangolin, could have played the intermediary between the bat and the man. Stay, insist Olivier Bouchaud, that“it takes a succession of special and rare conditions for this [franchissement de la barrière d’espèce] is possible “.

Olivier Bouchaud therefore considers it unlikely that an apartment dog or cat will transmit the virus to its owner. “At the individual level, being contaminated by your pet seems all the less possible since it should already have been able to be in contact with an infected person with crossing the barrier ‘in the other direction'”, notes the doctor.

Like their owners, pets are certainly not immune to viral diseases. But they generally do not catch the same, underlines Anne Goffard, virologist at the Lille University Hospital and researcher at the Institut Pasteur de Lille.

Coronaviruses exist in cats and dogs, but until today, they did not infect humans.Anne Goffardat franceinfo

And the expert to continue: “For the moment, human coronaviruses do not pass into pets. “ “SARS has been isolated from wild animals – civets – sold in Chinese markets, but not from domestic animals”, recalls Anne-Claude Crémieux, infectious disease specialist at the Saint-Louis hospital in Paris.

“In order for pets to be infected, they would have to have the same cellular receptor that interacts with the binding domain of 2019-Ncov “, develops Samira Fafi-Kremer, head of the virology laboratory at Strasbourg university hospitals. However, says the expert, in the case of the new coronavirus, this entry point for infection in the body may well be the same in humans and certain animals, according to recent research ( here, here and there).

“Very recently, Chinese and American researchers have reported that the human cell receptor for nCoV is an enzyme called ACE2 which interacts with the surface protein of the virus and which allows infection of human cells”, details the specialist. Gold, “It would appear that the binding sites on ACE2 specific to nCoV are the same as those present in other animals such as pigs and cats”.

Samira Fafi-Kremer therefore concludes thatbased on these data from the literature, these animals can be infected and transmit to humans or vice versa “. So the risk exists in theory but no case has been found to verify it. As a result, the World Health Organization (WHO) does not yet agree with this conclusion.

There is currently no evidence that pets such as dogs or cats can be infected with the new coronavirus.World Health Organizationin his advice to the general public

At this stage, the WHO therefore indicates rather thanit is always good to wash your hands with soap and water after contact with pets “. Not to guard against the new coronavirus, but because it “protects against various common bacteria” such as Escherichia coli and salmonella “who can go from pets to humans”. But as Samira Fafi-Kremer reminds us, “still it is necessary that the man or his animal meets the virus” and nCoV-2019 “does not circulate in France”.

Ban on trade in wild animals can limit coronavirus outbreak – Insurance for Pets

The Party for the Animals wants a ban on the import of exotic animals and animal products to prevent the spread of viruses such as the corona virus to Europe. The question is how useful that is.

The whole world was shocked by the outbreak of the new corona virus. Nearly 25,000 people worldwide have now been infected, and around 500 patients have died from the effects of the disease. Every few years a potentially very dangerous new virus is emerging. SARS, MERS, ebola; they are all particularly contagious diseases that can end fatally. What all these viruses have in common with the current culprit is that they have passed from animals to humans. And there is a good chance that this will happen more often in the future.

    Mysterious coronavirus also a reason for fear in the Netherlands? “Much is still unclear”

‘We are increasingly finding ourselves in the habitat of wild animals’

“There is much more contact between humans and animals nowadays. That also increases the chance of transmitting animal viruses,” says Eric Snijder, professor of molecular virology in Leiden. “All animal species carry their own set of viruses. Until recently there was not much going on. But now that we are with more and more people, we are increasingly entering the habitat of wild animal species. We are moving en masse into the jungle to view them, we sometimes process them in medicines or serve them as a meal. That also increases the risk of infection to humans. “

In China, the government has now temporarily banned food markets where wild animals are traded. A growing number of Chinese citizens also want an end to the unsanitary markets. Good news, according to the Party for the Animals, not only for the well-being of humans but also for the well-being of many vulnerable animal species.

Cover for illegal trade

“Despite their protection status, many wild animals can still be traded as normal. We have been arguing for a total ban for years,” said MP Wassenberg of the PvdD. “It is not for nothing that the animals are protected and legal trade is the ideal cover for illegally trading the rarest and most vulnerable animals. This not only causes animals to die out, it is also a great risk to public health.”

Today, the House of Representatives is discussing the fight against infectious diseases. The Party for the Animals calls on the Dutch government to stop the import of exotic animals and animal products from abroad to prevent the spread of viruses such as the corona virus. The party also wants the Dutch government to ask China to convert the temporary ban on food markets into a permanent status.

Minimal chance of infection in the Netherlands

Molecular virologist Snijder has reservations about the Party for the Animals call. “I understand the intention, certainly because it is also about animal welfare. But the chance of infection in the Netherlands by imported animals or animal products is really minimal.”

He said: “The situation is different for the local situation in China. Limiting contact with wild animals can be the key to limit the chance of this type of outbreaks.”


Upon request, the World Health Organization (WHO) states that it sees a task for itself and other international organizations with regard to better prevention of infectious diseases.

“We are currently investigating the exact source of the new corona virus outbreak. As soon as this is clear, we will – together with other organizations – advise China on how to prevent an outbreak in the future.” The WHO wants to collaborate more intensively with national Food and Consumer Product Authorities.

Therefore choose sunscreens or sunscreens for your home, or place a sunshade with articulated arm if you also want to immediately create a shady spot in the garden. You can of course enjoy yourself here, but also your pets and some plants will be grateful for this cool spot in the open air.

Install shutters

In addition, roller shutters act as sun blinds and help to insulate your windows (reducing the amount of cold coming in).

This is very practical if you live in the middle of the city or along a busy road.

Go for insulation

Insulating your house properly reduces the amount of cold coming in considerably. This is of course not only comfortable for you and your family members; your heating costs are also considerably reduced. Check all windows, doors and cracks and invest in double glazing and extra insulation. Consider carefully which type of insulation best suits your home. In some homes you save the most with cavity wall insulation, while in other homes roof or floor insulation is the most advantageous.

Don’t forget the garden

Not only do you have to protect your home against nature, the garden also needs attention. Especially with frost it is wise to walk an extra round through the garden. Check here whether all external faucets are closed and protect your plants against the cold. This way you can put some plants in the shed better. In addition, a layer of leaves over your plants also provides a good protective layer to protect against the cold.

Key market trends

Growing tendency of smaller families to favor the adoption of pets

Rapid urbanization in the major developing countries of the world has led to an increasing preference of couples for smaller families. The growing urban nature of society, which results in the separation of farm animals from nature, stimulates the desire to bring pets home. Due to the social comfort, the business, the security and the aesthetic sense offered by the pets, the tendency to the adoption of pets increases. A high standard of living, an expensive health care system and high levels of education have led to a decrease in the number of children and an increase in the adoption of pets, such as dogs, cats and the birds. This trend, in turn, is expected to drive growth in the veterinary pet diet market in the long term. The pet population exceeds that of children in several countries, such as Brazil and Japan. Pets are adopted and treated as family members due to changing demographic trends, such as delayed marriages and lower fertility rates. For example, the current fertility rate in Brazil is 1.77 children per woman and is expected to fall to 1.66 children per woman by 2060, according to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE). This increases the demand for pets as well as pet / veterinary products, which in turn contributes to the growth of the market being studied.

North America dominates the global market

According to the 2017-2018 American Pet Product Association Pet Ownership Survey, 68% of American households own a pet and spend an average of $ 300 per year on pet food and treats. As North America is responsible for 31% of the world’s pet food production, coupled with the huge demand for pet care, this is boosting the US market for pet diets. The main distribution channels through which the United States provides pet food are mass retail stores, pet superstores, online sales, niche specialists, grocery chains, pharmacies and agricultural supply stores. According to Packaged Facts’ first quarter 2018 online survey in the United States, pet owners with online sales of pet food are the main driver of the market, contributing to 14 % of pet consumers buy in the past 7 days and the remaining 31% in the past 30 days. The US pet market is very concentrated with a few major players, such as Nestlé, Mars, Big Heart, Colgate and Blue Buffalo. Blue Buffalo has entered the therapeutic pet food market, where Colgate-Palmolive has a 60% market share in specific pet health issues. In addition, 16% of American households buy pet food containing pre / probiotic ingredients, which stimulates the market for pet diets in the United States.

Competitive landscape

The results of the market share analysis for veterinary pet diets indicate a partially fragmented market, with the main market players accounting for around 45% of the market while the remaining 55% is allocated to various small businesses and private labels. Mars Inc. and Nestlé SA represent the majority of the market through their brands Royal Canin and Purina Petcare, respectively.

Companies such as Farmina Pet Foods and Blue Buffalo Pet Products are relatively new to the market, but have had a huge impact on the market and have therefore been involved in various strategic movements,
