Made in America

Americans will spend an estimated 55 billion dollars this year on their pets.  While that sounds like an astounding figure, the truth is, our pets are family and we want them to have the best!  But with regular product recalls, we’re left wondering how can we give them the best, but also keep them safe? 

Here to tell us how to do that with Made in America pet products is Pet Lifestyle Expert, Kelly Diedring Harris.

Protect Your Bubble’s underwriter is also American – they are based in Ohio.
