Luxury pet products fly off Asda's shelves
According to Asda, the market for pampering pets "has never been so popular" and the Wal-mart-owned supermarket is taking advantage of the trend with a 'Pet Week' event.

Sales of Asda's Bob Martin Stay Fresh dog shampoo have jumped 72% month-on-month, while many canine dental treats offered by the supermarket are up by 54%.

Pet food has also seen a huge uplift, with sales of gourmet foods for both cats and dogs alike are on the rise. Gourmet Perle Pouch meals have seen an overall increase of 65%.

Phil Wilkinson from Asda's pet team said: "The market for luxury pet products continues to evolve as pampering and preening them has become a normal part of everyday life.... We've noticed the trend and have reacted accordingly."
