Products manufactured by G&B Marketing include the ProCollar, an inflatable collar for pets that is used to prevent pets from bending their necks to chew injured or surgical areas. Two new product launches include the ProCone, a soft, flexible alternative to the rigid cone, and the Tick Twister, a patented tick-removal device for pets.
