Comfort Zone® Products Kicks Off Summer Early With Comfort Zone Cool Cat Sweepstakes; Grand Prize Is A Pet-Friendly Vacation

May 30, 2012

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The people who bring you Comfort Zone® products, a Central Garden & Pet Company brand, announce the kickoff of the “Comfort Zone Cool Cat Sweepstakes,” a sweepstakes on Facebook that celebrates summer travel and offers prizes that will help pets and their parents relax to “keep their cool.” Changes in your pet’s environment, including travel, moving or the shuffle of the summer season when children are home from school, can cause stress for your pets and give them reason to act out. Comfort Zone® products are an effective way of managing stress-related behavior such as vertical scratching, urine marking in cats and excessive barking and chewing in dogs. Comfort Zone® with Feliway® products for cats and Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® products for dogs mimic the pheromones secreted by dogs and cats, respectively, to reduce undesirable behavior.

“Central Garden & Pet and Comfort Zone® products are committed to providing pet parents solutions to help manage their pet’s unwelcome behavior often due to the stress of environmental challenges,” said Sonny Singh, Director of Marketing – Animal Health for Central Garden & Pet Company. “While it can be stressful for a cat or dog, it can also be difficult for pet parents when their four-legged friends indulge in naughty, undesirable behavior. We wanted to reward people for their dedication to their pets through the Comfort Zone Cool Cat Sweepstakes, compliments of Central Garden & Pet.”

Central Garden & Pet invites consumers to ‘Like’ Comfort Zone on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ComfortZoneProducts for a chance to win a four-night getaway to one of the country’s most pet-friendly travel destinations – Key West, FL.
