Several brands are touted in the company’s portfolio, including Flappy dog toys, Durapet Premium Stainless Steel Pet Bowls, Pet Zone, ecoPure Naturals, Cosmic Catnip, SmartScoop, and Play-N-Squeak® cat toys. OurPet’s is a publicly traded company.

Durapet offers over fifty cat and dog bowls and the new Durapet Fashion Bowl Line is scheduled to be released within the next few months. The OurPet’s Company is publicly traded as OPCO (OTC BB).
