Lazarus Naturals expanded its pet line to include CBD dog treats and a new tincture for dogs and cats, all with functional ingredients that provide an all-natural alternative wellness option.
The new line of dog treats features three flavors, all containing Lazarus Naturals’ full spectrum hemp-derived CBD oil along with supplemental ingredients designed to address different barriers to wellness. The treats are grain-free with no artificial flavors, preservatives or sweeteners. One treat contains 5 mg. of CBD and is scored down the middle to get the perfect serving size based on a dog’s weight.
Calm + Vitality treats feature an immune-boosting blend of organic shiitake, reishi and lion’s mane mushrooms, in addition to organic sweet potato and organic turmeric for inflammation and joint support; the Calm + Mobility treats are high in omega-3 fatty acids from green-lipped mussels and wild Alaskan salmon oil, combined with organic pumpkin, fish collagen and glucosamine; and the Calm + Digest treats (coming soon) are made with organic pumpkin, all-natural probiotics, inulin and DHA/EPA.
Lazarus Naturals also expanded its line of pet tinctures with the addition of a new Wild Salmon flavor. All three pet tinctures use the same CBD-rich extract as the company’s human products, combined with organic coconut MCT oil. Containing 20 mg. of CBD per 1 ml., each flavor is available in three sizes and potencies: 15 ml. (300 mg. of CBD), 60 ml. (1,200 mg. of CBD) and 120 ml. (2,400 mg. of CBD). The tinctures can be added to a pet’s food or administered orally.
Just like every product from Lazarus Naturals, the new pet treats and tinctures are third-party tested for potency, pesticides and heavy metals.
“We have been making affordable, effective CBD products for humans since 2014 and now we’re helping pets live better lives too with our new CBD treats and tinctures,” said Justin Amesbury, director of research and development. “They are the same quality and purity as our human products, and we added a higher percentage of functional ingredients to provide even more beneficial properties. We also use high-quality hemp-derived cannabidiol grown on our own farms in Central Oregon.”
The company will celebrate the release of its new pet product line by donating 20 percent of sales of pet tinctures and treats from Oct. 1-8 to America’s VetDogs, a nonprofit that trains and matches service dogs with veterans, active-duty service members and first responders with disabilities. The program provides enhanced mobility and renewed independence to help veterans mitigate the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder and provides its services at no charge.
