America-based Cannabidiol (CBD) dog biscuit brand Austin and Kat has launched in the UK.
Founded by Kat Donatello in 2014, the company was established after she searching for natural supplements to help her ageing Duck Tolling Retriever, Brady.
Austin and Kat products are all created by hand, in small batches, using all natural, gluten free, and locally sourced ingredients.
The CBD biscuits and oils contain a proprietary blend of non-psychoactive cannabinoids derived from agricultural hemp stalks and seeds. CBD has been shown to exhibit dramatic benefits for both dogs and cats, especially within the scope of inflammation, pain, sleep, stress and anxiety, appetite, overall well-being and mood.
Infused with full spectrum CBD, coconut oil, oats, apples, peanut butter, cinnamon and turmeric, Austin and Kat CBD wellness biscuits are offered in 5mg and 2mg biscuit sizes that are each specifically dosed for your pet’s weight.
The doggy biscuits contain CBD hemp oil which has Omega 3 and 6 for health. The wild Alaskan salmon oil and hemp seed oil are combined to support proper joint function, heart health, and skin/coat condition while also enhancing the immune system.
The brand’s products all undergo third party testing to ensure consistency and purity and it claims to have no side effects.
Donatello said: “The world has finally woken up to this naturally occurring wonder supplement, and we are seeing more and more ‘human’ brands adding CBD to their product offerings.
“As in America, once people here discover the benefits for themselves they will look to find it in products that can make a real difference to their pet’s lives. There’s still a little way to go in terms of educating the public, but we believe the time is right to bring our range to the dog and cat owners of the UK.”
Austin and Kat CBD products are available to purchase online and at independent high street pet stores across the UK.
