The first week in May is National Small Business Awareness Week, so we wanted to highlight a few of the amazing small businesses whose products we carry here at FarmVet.

“National Small Business Week 2022 celebrates the resiliency and tenacity of America’s entrepreneurs who are doing their part to power our nation’s historic economic comeback.”

from U.S. Small Business Administration website

It goes without saying that small businesses are an essential part of our economy. Show your support by shopping a few of these FarmVet favorites.

The Multifunction Pros – SleekEZ, StripHair, & Fluff Monkey

Did you know each of these nifty tools was developed by entrepreneurs? These innovative items simplify life around the barn or at home!

SleekEZ for grooming, a small business available at FarmVet

The SleekEZ is a unique tool designed to remove hair, dirt, and dander from your animals’ coats. It is perfect for shedding season, as the teeth gently pull away the loose hair without tugging. The SleekEZ is available in multiple sizes to fit your needs, or should we say… your animal’s needs. Use a smaller size for your cat or dog and the largest size for your horse. You can also use the SleekEZ to remove hair from your furniture, saddle pads, carpeting, etc.

StripHair for grooming, a small business available at FarmVet

The StripHair Gentle Groomer was aptly named by its innovator – this tool gently removes dirt and hair from your horse’s coat, while also giving a massage that helps warm the muscles. Use it to curry, slick, shine, or even bathe and shampoo your horse while increasing circulation throughout the body.

Fluff Monkey for grooming and cleaning, a small business available at FarmVet

According to Fluff Monkey, sometimes the greatest things are born out of necessity. And that is just the case with this little accessory! Use Fluff Monkey for all your cleaning needs – from your horse to your saddle to your boots. Brush off your horse or use it like a powder puff to whiten up those socks, buff your boots, or apply cleaner to your tack. The list is seemingly endless for this accessory’s uses. And to top it off, it can clip right onto your show backpack. Fluff Monkey is run by individuals who believe in giving back to the community, so you can feel good about supporting this small business.
