2019 Pet Supplement Trends: CBD

We are a pet-loving nation. Most of us have a four-legged friend by our side.  There are times when even your friends and family are not present, but your pet is there to comfort you.  As per the American Pet Products Association, nearly 85 million US households own a pet with the annual cost exceeding to $72 billion. Owning a pet requires to cater to all the needs of your pet from diet to health.

As a pet parent, you may know that pets also suffer from stress, become anxious, dealing with seizures, and chronic pains. If you find your dog or cat in such a condition, you have to calm the poor creature down and provide the best treatment.

Latest Pet Supplement Trends

Still feeding your cat with a traditional boring meal? It’s time for some change. You probably want your pet to be healthy, and this is not possible without adding healthy ingredients to your dog’s diet. Don’t be afraid of introducing some new flavors to your pet.  There are a plethora of options you may like to try from frozen to fresh and customized diets for your pets. Same goes for the treats you serve to your pets.

Here is a list of the pet supplements “trending” in the market.

Regional formulae

Animals seem to love regional recipes –ingredients inspired to a specific cuisine. Not only you may find a regional formula in the canned food, but also dry kibble food for your pet.  Again, there are so many options available from Asian to Greek, Italian to French, and even Spanish cuisines. How about treating your dog with a New York styled beef product today?

High protein formula

A balanced diet must contain an adequate amount of proteins. When it comes to pet foods,  high-protein formulas –containing exotic protein sources like wild boar, or quail –are in demand.

Meal Toppers

Another option to add flavor to your pet’s diet is the meal topper. Your pet requires nutritional supplements, and adding meal toppers in the diet will serve the purpose.

Limited Ingredient Diets (LID)

Diets with less number of ingredients –three to four –have also gained popularity. If you have a pet with food sensitivity, LID is a good option for your pet.

Pets –The New Cannabis Customers

Cannabinoids or CBD is the hottest addition to the pet supplement trends.  It is no surprise if you and your pet both are consuming CBD supplements for anxiety or other issues. Pet owners are increasingly feeding their pets with CBD to reduce their pain and ease their anxiety. CBD is a non-psychoactive element found in the marijuana and hemp plant that does not make you high.

Pets, like other living beings, react to sensations; they also get terrified or panic in certain situations –such as lightning, a thunderstorm, or even monsoon rain. Your cat may have digestive issues or severe joint pain. Your uncle’s dog may be insomniac barking all night or may have epilepsy.

CBD supplements cater to most of the illnesses your pet may suffer. Besides CBD oil, you may find supplements, extract, or oil-infused products. If you only search for ingestible oil, you will find many flavors, chicken-flavored CBD oil, being one of them. Instead of sprinkling your pet’s food bowl with CBD oil, you may treat him with CBD-infused peanut butter, or a semi-moist meatball or a simple balm to lick. Other options you may want to choose for your pet include extruded chews and sticks, capsules, tablets, gels, liquids, and powders.

Conclusion

CBD is the new solution to help your pet’s pain, allergies, indigestion, seizures, anxiety, and overall health. For customized quality and safe animal health products and treats for your pet, contact us at Green Mountain Animal.
