Products, Labeling and Care

Q: Are all of your products UPC coded?
A: All Boss Pet products have a corresponding UPC Code. All tagged goods are labeled with the related UPC-A barcode for retail scanning purposes.

Q: Why do some of your product labels refer to restrictions on sale in the State of California?
A: California’s Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. A large number of common chemicals, some of which are used in gloves and protective apparel, can be the subject of such warnings. As a distributor of products into California, our products must comply with applicable laws. We care about the safety of our customers and provide appropriate labeling to assist them in their buying decisions.

Q: Are you able to pre-ticket or label your products to meet our requirements?
A: In most cases we are able to accommodate ticketing and labeling requests. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

Advertising and Images

Q: Do you provide high resolution images of your products?
A: For your convenience, we offer high-resolution images of all our products on our website. If another format is needed, please contact customer service.

Q: Do you make donations in support of animals?
A: We actively support some local non-profits with various product donations, but unfortunately it is impossible for us to do so for every request. If you are hosting a particular event, we can forward your message on to our sister companies to see if they can help support your efforts but we cannot guarantee participation.
