Can you even begin to imagine a life without your pup running around the house like a tornado, ruining furniture and clothing, slippers chewed to bits, and slob on every wall possible?
For me, this is an easy no. I want to have fur in my coffee or stuck to my lip at least twice a day, I enjoy the wet nose cuddling in my neck after a long winter morning walks up the mountain and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
If you’re like me then you’ll know all these things are small niggles compared to never having them again which is why when it comes to his diet and nutrition we don’t take any short cuts. We want only the best we can afford for our household fluff ball and ensure that he is around for as long as he can be, so the correct meal plans are key.
We have recently come across CBD oil, I was hesitant at first in trying a completely natural product, and hearing that many success stories had me sceptical, to be honest, but after over 6 months of monitored dosage administering, we have never looked back.
I’ve incorporated it into so many variations of meal prep and treats for our dog and on the occasion for our dinners just to keep our bodily functions in check and good maintenance, we aren’t getting any younger am I right?
One of my favourite recipes for Bullet (our pet) and one that seems to be going down a treat are these biscuits snacks https://myedibleschef.com/recipes/cannabidiol-cbd-gluten-free-pumpkin-carrot-dog-biscuits/, full of goodness he doesn’t realize he is getting and when I use the paw or bone-shaped cookie cutters even I wouldn’t mind trying one-but I don’t.
There are hundreds of recipes to experiment with and seeing your pup light up at an unexpected treat is all worth it.
You might be wondering what CBD is, well essentially without dragging on too much into the technical version of explanations, it is an oil that is extracted from the cannabis Sativa plant. It is processed using CO2 extraction methods (as this is the safest with the least solvents left behind) and concentrated to take out all traces of THC.
THC is the psychoactive, hallucinogenic part of the hemp flower and the element that gives recreational users of cannabis the ‘high’ feeling. This is extremely harmful to dogs which is why you must buy a legally and ethically farmed product with labels stating ingredients and sources of origins.
We don’t want a product that contains harmful chemicals added in during the farming and harvesting processes, any item with a THC content (and it should state the amount) of more than 0.03% should ring alarm bells in your head and you are better off paying a bit more for a decent product.
You can’t put a price on a life, human or animal, choose quality products and make better choices. For options into what’s available and varieties on the market, holistapet products are made with love so you can be safe in knowing you are in good hands and have peace of mind that you are getting what you pay for.
3 CBD treats and snacks to try for your pet
- Mini doggy biscuits. They can be store-bought in many different flavors according to your pet’s preference and specifically formulated to treat individual ailments as well as a combination of, or you can try your hand in the kitchen and make your own. We all love a biscuit, pets’ are no different, make them mini and he’ll think he is getting more.
- These will come as a nice surprise for your pup if he is used to hard biscuits after every meal or during snack time, the uniqueness will keep him intrigued while he tries to figure out the texture keeping his little mind active and he will be eager to digest it before he doesn’t see it again.
- Hot meals. This is the easiest way of getting the oil into your dog, simply stirred into his food bowl on serving and it’s gone. This is also the quickest way to get it into the system and work as it is absorbed quickly.
