HEMPVET Expands to Feline and Equine Markets
HEMPVET unveiled nine new pet wellness products, including its first for cats and horses.
Each of its new products is designed to address a specific issue, including anxiety, digestive disorders, hip and joint pain, inflammation, and immune deficiencies through the use of organic hemp as its halo ingredient.
"Hemp-derived pet products were unheard of only a few short years ago,” said HEMPVET CEO Will Billings. “Now swaths of CBD treatments are available at pet specialty retailers across the country. We believe that the industry has not even scratched the surface of the potential of hemp to improve animals' lives. With this next phase of our growth, we are excited to treat a wider range of health concerns while providing pets with safe, natural alternatives to traditional medicines."
For cats, HEMPVET now offers soft chews for anxiety reduction, hip and joint pain relief, and immunity support. In the equine category, HEMPVET now provides powder-based remedies to reduce anxiety, hip and joint inflammation, and digestive disorders. The expansion also includes a hemp-infused flea and tick spray and topical gel remedies which are all-natural and beneficial for both dogs and cats.
The company is also currently developing a hemp shive-based bedding for pets of all sizes. The spongy, absorbent material will solve several problems associated with standard pet bedding, including: limiting dust exposure, naturally controlling odor, eliminating toxic chemical exposure, and extending product life.
HEMPVET products are certified by the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) and created by a board-certified animal nutritionist, Dr. Gary Pusillo, who has managed the nutrition programs for 17 Kentucky Derby winners. The active ingredients used in the products are lab-tested to ensure quality, traceability, and safety and all formulas contain multiple active ingredients to create a synergistic effect.
