At PetSoothe, we focus on using all-natural and organic ingredients, including organic CBD, because we want our product to be the best it can be. The result is that your dog gets top-quality, great-tasting treats. In fact, we source our CBD from a family-owned, organically certified hemp farm in Fort Collins, Colorado. And, our CBD dog treats contain more than just CBD. We add supplements like turmeric and valerian root along with a variety of active and inactive healthy ingredients. We have two types of treats for dogs, including Joint Support Chicken and Sweet Potato and Calm Peanut Butter Crunch treats. Each contains 10 mg of organic, full-spectrum CBD oil from CO2 distillate extract.
The following list of products includes the active and inactive ingredients in our Calm Peanut Butter Crunch dog treats, which promote a calm and relaxed mood, lift your dog’s spirits and lessen unwanted behaviors.
Valerian root is an herb used in a variety of products for its mild sedative effect and for nervous tension and insomnia. Valerian root is native to Europe and Asia, but it is also grown in the U.S. It acts as a natural GABA regulator, which is a chemical messenger that helps regulate nerve impulses in the brain and nervous system.
Organic eggs are an important ingredient. A study from Penn State’s College of Agriculture Sciences shows that they contain around twice as much omega-3 fatty acids and higher percentages of vitamins E and A, which are beneficial to your dog.
The organic peanut butter we use is produced without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. While most dogs love the taste of peanut butter, they’re getting the added benefit of healthy fats, protein, fiber, and potassium.
Whole Wheat Flour
Rather than use a highly-processed white flour, which is devoid of the most nutrient-rich parts, we use organic whole wheat flour. This is important because whole wheat flour includes bran and germ, which are the nutritious parts of the grain. Whole wheat flour also contains vitamins and minerals and is also a source of protein and fiber.
Our Joint Support Chicken and Sweet Potato treats support healthy mobility, comfort, and activity levels and lessen morning stiffness. The following is the list of ingredients and descriptions of each.
Glucosamine Sulfate (Shellfish)
Cartilage, which is the tissue that cushions joints, has a natural compound called glucosamine. Glucosamine sulfate, sourced from shellfish, is widely used to support joint health. Glucosamine has been used by humans for years to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
You might be familiar with turmeric because it is used in many curry powders, but this common spice is also known for its use in treating many ailments. Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family and contains the chemical curcumin. As an antioxidant, curcumin helps to maintain healthy pain states in the body. Turmeric has been used in Asian medicine for many years to treat a variety of illnesses, mainly because of its antioxidant effects.
Cassava is a starch tuber that is grated to make flour. It’s often used as a substitute for wheat flour and gluten-free foods. Cassava flour is a low-calorie ingredient and is also low in fat and sugar, but is rich in vitamin C, making it a healthful inactive ingredient in our treats.
An ingredient that will make your dog crave our treats is chicken paste. While it might not sound particularly tasty to humans, it’s the ingredient that adds tons of flavor but has the added benefit of protein that all dogs require.
Rich in fiber, protein, and MCTs, coconut flour is a gluten-free ingredient that can help promote stable blood sugar, heart health, and proper digestion. While many coconut products are high in saturated fats (the bad fat), when coconut flour is processed, the saturated fat is removed. Also, this flour contains more fiber and protein than wheat flour.
Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious. They contain fiber, vitamins, and minerals, but they’re really known for their vitamin A content, which is known for benefiting the immune system and eyesight. When dogs are deficient in vitamin A, their skin and coat will not look healthy, but they can also suffer from night blindness if deficient enough.
This chemical additive is widely used as a preservative in food. It is odorless and imparts no taste to food – it’s simply used, in extremely small quantities, as a preservative.
As PetSoothe continues to expand on its line of CBD dog treats, we will maintain our commitment to using the finest quality ingredients to ensure your dog(s) get more than just a tasty snack – they get healthy treats that they’ll be excited to eat on a daily basis.
