CBD AND OUR PETS

RELEVANT QUESTIONS, HELPFUL ANSWERS By Samantha Smith

BD for Pets is booming! But with so many brands, come so many questions. What brands are safe to give our furry friends? What kind of products are offered? What are these products made of and how can they help my pet? Who are the people behind these brands? And what do they stand for? In this CBD product roundup, we take a look at CBD products based on outstanding research, proven to all contribute effectively to the health and wellness of our four-legged best friends. MARTHA STEWART Martha Stewart has been a pet owner for decades - dogs, certainly, but a host of other animals too. The experience taught her exactly what pets need to live long, healthy, and happy lives, which is why she teamed up with Dr. Bob Menardi, DVM, Director of Veterinary Technical and Educational Services at Canopy Animal Health, to create CBD products that are well-researched and proven effective for pets including Pet Soft-Baked Chews for calm in a delicious chicken and cranberry flavor; mobility in chicken and blueberry; and wellness in chicken, blueberry, and anise as well as chicken-flavored Pet Wellness Drops. Trust Martha to create CBD for our pets that looks great and tastes delicious. Info: marthastewart.com.
