As dog owners, we love our pets like children. When your dog feels pain, it’s almost as if you are feeling it. Watching your elderly dog attempt to get up out of bed with sore joints is heart-wrenching. The love and concern we have for our pets’ welfare is why we’ve thrown our heart and soul into developing a line of safe and natural CBD dog treats. Enter Paw Treats, the first product from Paw Treats, Agility+, targets doggy osteoarthritis and inflammation
Why CBD Dog Treats?
In the past few years, a little-known compound found in cannabis plants (including hemp) has been making big news. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is experiencing a rapid rise in popularity as an alternative therapy for pain, inflammation, anxiety and more. People, frustrated with the side effects and prohibitive costs of conventional drugs, are turning to the safe, all-natural and effective relief provided by CBD.
Now, pet owners are doing the same for their furry loved ones. While not all drugs can cross the human-pet divide, CBD is proving just as safe and just as useful for pets, as it is for humans. Even veterinarians are jumping on the CBD oil bandwagon. Progressive vets are now prescribing it for common animal ailments, like osteoarthritis, instead of more expensive pharmaceutical options.
CBD Dog Treats to Target Osteoarthritis and Joint Pain
One of the main reasons why people use CBD products today is for the treatment of inflammation. Which is why it’s a valuable active and all-natural ingredient for our aging animals as well. Dogs play hard during their life, and this often means that they age hard as well. But it’s not just old dogs that need relief from joint pain and inflammation.
To date, some research shows that even younger dogs may suffer in silence from joint related pain. According to the stats, as high as 20 percent of younger dogs may have osteoarthritis. If you notice your pup limping, favoring a back leg, or struggling to get upstairs, it may be time to use CBD infused dog treats.
What Makes Agility+ CBD Dogs Treats Special?
The first product launched by Paw Treats, Agility+, is aimed at providing all-natural relief to dogs suffering from osteoarthritis. These treats, which were specially formulated by a team of veterinarians, pharmacologists, and food technologists, include many active ingredients beyond CBD.
If you explore the ingredient listing on other CBD dog treats, you’ll notice the active ingredients end with CBD. But Paw Treats aims to provide a more holistic approach to health by relying on a unique and therapeutic combination:
Each ingredient below was carefully chosen for its scientifically proven ability to reduce the pain and inflammation related to osteoarthritis. Plus, these ingredients weren’t chosen on a whim, the ingredients were chosen based on evidence demonstrated in the research.
- Cannabidiol (CBD) – known to work through a connection to the endocannabinoid system to target inflammation and pain.
- Glucosamine – protects against cartilage deterioration, and may even promote cartilage regeneration.
- Chondroitin sulfate – studies show that chondroitin sulfate may prevent joint enlargement and reduce general joint pain and inflammation.
- Turmeric root powder – long used in Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of inflammation and symptoms of arthritis.
- Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) – working in synergy with glucosamine, MSM also protects against cartilage break down.
- Frankincense resin powder – shown in scientific studies to be a potent anti-inflammatory, this natural resin may increase mobility.
Although, there are many CBD dog treats on the market today, but not all were developed with care and attention to the quality of products. All Paw Treats, including the Agility+ treats, rely on real science. They were crafted with input from experts from a leading university in Europe, the University of Prague.
More to Come From Paw Treats
Also, beyond Agility+ treats, Paw Treats is set to release a number of other CBD products for our furry friends. This includes Relax+ CBD dog treats, geared towards younger, nervous dogs. Stress and anxiety can manifest in animals through abnormal, aggressive or bad behavior. Considering anxiety is the number one reason why people take CBD oil, it goes without saying its useful for the treatment of doggy anxiety as well.
Both formulations of CBD dog treats, the Agility+ and the Relax+, will also be available in a drop format in the future as well. As many dog owners know, not all dogs love all treats, which is why it’s helpful to have the drop formulation available for those picky eaters.
