We all lose a step as time goes on, even our beloved pets. Even though it’s natural to see a slowing down due to father time, it could also be a sign of joint pain that is prohibiting your pet’s mobility. Regular exercise is essential to maintaining healthy muscles, joints and bones, so it’s crucial for our pets to remain active.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance in your pet’s body. The highest concentration is found in healthy cartilage. Your pet’s body produces glycosaminoglycan, which helps form and repair body tissues like cartilage.
The natural production of Glucosamine slows down as aging occurs and the natural repair process is impaired. This degenerative process will eventually lead to stiffness and joint pain. The prolonged wear and tear on the joints, along with the slowed repair time of the cartilage, leads to the development of arthritis.
There is plenty of research that the use of pet supplements like glucosamine for dogs can help rebuild cartilage. This can help improve your dog’s joint function and activity levels.

The main reason we started the company was my 65lbs Chow with severe arthritis and spinal degeneration. There weren’t any dosage options for large pets available so we came up with an attainable option of our own. We were able to get him off his meds and add 3 years of quality of life with 2 doses per day. We offer CBD dog treats, CBD Pet Tinctures and a CBD Pet Safe Almond Butter, all with options for medium to large pets which is rare in the industry. You can check out our CBD Oil Pets here.

Dental chews are a delicious way to promote healthy gums and teeth for your dog. Brushing your dog’s teeth is fantastic, if they will cooperate. Most pet parents know how difficult that can be. Dental treats are enjoyable alternative to help your dog’s mouth stay clean and minty fresh.
Our Organic Spirulina Dental chews are grain free and use a unique star shape which gets into all the nooks and crannies between dog’s teeth to help increase blood flow to the gums and prevent tartar buildup.

Skin and Coat
Soft and shiny coats look great, but they’re also a strong indicator of your pets overall health. Essential fatty acids are a primary component of your pets skin and coat.
Essential fatty acids are the foundation of a healthy skin and coat. They fortify proteins and increase collagen production. This aids in creating stronger skin and shiny coat. When essential fatty acid levels are in good shape your dog’s skin can retain moisture. This not only creates a shinier coat but will help protect against the elements and environment.
We have an amazing Coconut and Salmon Skin and Coat Dog Treats. They drive pets nuts and are high in Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s. I even has customers that buy them for their cats.
Sometimes the constant licking and scratching can be a result of anxiety or stress. In this situation CBD can be a great solution. CBD is known for its effects on stress and anxiety but it also helps with inflammation and easing discomfort.
One thing that makes our CBD OIL for pets different is our carrier oils. Most companies use MCT oil which can cause diarrhea in pets easily. We avoid this and use hempseed oil which is high in omega 3’s, better than fish oil. We also use sunflower oil so you get omega 6’s as well. You get the skin and coat benefits while avoiding the upset stomachs.
