Trends and Products: Calming Solutions – Pet Age

Calming Companions
When it comes to pet health, knowledge is power. That’s why it is so important for consumers with anxious pets to know their options on how to treat their beloved companion animal. The more you know, the easier it will be to pair the pet with the most appropriate product. Due to its versatility and proven benefits, CBD can be found in many applications and forms, from oils and tinctures to topical sprays, gels and chews.
According to Bradley Kerrick of Pawse Pet, holistic pet calming products have become an ever more versatile and effective tool in the pet parent arsenal. Many of today’s pet CBD products, such as Bark-Less Bites, are designed with palatability and efficacy as their cornerstones.
As pet CBD continues to be such a growing trend with no signs of slowing down, it’s important for retailers to treat it like all other items in that quality, trusted ingredients matter. In addition, the product should be backed by accepted quality and safety standards and certifications.
