Pets like rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters need hay in their diet but many owners find keeping hay in pens messy and wasteful until now. Tidy Feeder is a hanging, recyclable, hay package that makes hay feeding more convenient for pet owners while keeping the pen tidy. You can find the Tidy Feeder at 300 retail stores across Canada and soon it will be available in the United States, Singapore and Japan. As well as offering a great new product for pet owners, this innovation is creating jobs in rural Ontario and increasing the market for great Canadian hay products.
