What’s the Difference Between Hemp Dog Treats and CBD Dog Treats?

Hemp vs. CBD

Hemp dog treats and CBD dog treats are the same and can be used interchangeably.  CBD dog treats are called by active cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, cannabidiol, or CBD for short.

Hemp dog treats is called by the variety of cannabis plant, that happens to be high in CBD compounds.  The  plant is also known as “Industrial Hemp”. One will often read that a product is manufactured using hemp oil or industrial hemp. Again, this is one and the same.

In summation, this type of product will either be called by the active compound CBD, or the variety of plant the active compound comes from, hemp.

To further confuse people, CBD has been cracked down by anyone and everyone. From Facebook advertising to listings on EBay, Amazon, to merchant processing, and the list goes on.  People that work and manufacture in this industry  are come up with new acronyms such as “PCR Oil”. This is just as the general public is starting to educate themselves to the term “CBD”.  One of the reasons the term “hemp” started being used in place of CBD. Another way to seem more innocuous and fly under the radar. It is a delicate business balancing act, and being able to have people find your product and not get shut down.

New Trend?

Be on the look out: “PCR Oil”, or phytocannabinoid rich oil may be the next synonymous term birthed from the controversial “CBD” moniker after businesses start encountering more and more problems; and other creative ways to describe products using CBD or hemp oil.  This will continue until the hemp plant is re-classified out of Schedule I drug status, and hopefully lands and is managed under the Department of Agriculture to be listed as an industrial crop like corn or soy. Until then, the public can expect to have confusing labeling and names for the same type of product that change frequently and faster than the general public can keep up with.

Update

With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp has now been re-classified and it is legal to grow in the US. Previously it had only been legal in a handful of states. Soon many other states began to follow and thus the passing of the bill. This enables the USDA to administer farm programs and provide guidelines and eligibility for growers and extractors. It is the first step to legal regulation of the hemp industry. There is still much to do and large bridges to close the gap, but it’s a start. We will keep you abreast of new developments as they unfold.

Don’t be afraid to ask your CBD manufacturer if they are using oil that is coming for USDA certified facilities. Any added form of safety in a not so fully regulated industry helps every little bit.

We at Bark Avenue Hemp Treats use a vertically integrated CBD manufacturer.  They grow, harvest, extract and test all under one roof.  FDA approved facility, non-GMO, organic with complete SDS information and licenses and certificates.  This is the best way to have full quality control over your supply chain. Less outsourcing means less room for error. We take product safety very seriously, and that means your pet’s health is our number one priority.

What is CBD Oil versus PCR Oil?

We first heard of this of all places, at Super Zoo in 2017, the world’s largest pet retailer trade show in the world. A former Colorado oil vendors happened to be there as we shared information on the cannabis industry happenings.

What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, just one of many cannabinoid compounds in the cannabis plant.  This makes up a large portion of the industrial hemp plant from where the oil is extracted.  The other cannabinoids can consist of CBG, CBN, CBC’s,etc.  Aside from these general CB compounds in the cannabis plant, there are also THC compounds. THC is famously responsible for the “high”.  Industrial hemp that is rich in CBD does not generate a “high”.

Many people who do not operate in the cannabis space are unfamiliar with these nuances in terminology.  Least of all, being aware of pharmaceutical companies that are positioning themselves for the CBD market to be blown wide open. One such entity is GW Pharmaceuticals out of the UK who has a trademark pending on the terminology “CBD”. If they are awarded this trademark, all business using the term “CBD” will have to cease and desist in its usage. In the meantime, this term is steadily growing, and commonly associated to describe the oils extracted from the hemp plant. Currently this trademark term is being used generically, and the trademark owner may need to take aggressive measures to retain rights to the trademark.  GW Pharma is fighting for the sole use of the “CBD” term.

What is PCR Hemp oil?

In comes PCR oil.  It stands for phytocannabinoid rich oil. In essence, this is a much more complete definition of what CBD oil truly embodies.  We believe it’s a much more targeted definition of what the cannabis oil truly is.  Phyto, meaning  of a plant, or relating to a plant. In short, it is ALL the plant derived cannabis compounds in the oil, and not just the CBD compound in particular. In short, it is a fancier name for what is commonly known as CBD.

Any full spectrum oil is just this, a whole plant oil with all the benefits that nature had intended. This includes the trace amounts of THC, and all the other 113 active cannabinoids.

If GW Pharmaceuticals wins the right to exclusively use the term “CBD”, the next game of semantics will be on. We will have to find a new generic term to replace this.  Perhaps this will be the use of “PCR”.  As language and uses constantly evolve, the uses of terminology in the cannabis space will not be an exception. It will be interesting to see what happens to this common use of this acronym in the next couple of years or so. Watch out for a possible rise of “PCR” and other terms to substitute “CBD” in the event this happens.

In just under a year,  CBD was used to describe any and all products made with industrial hemp. Now there has already been a shift in the cannabis space where people are no longer embracing it as a marketing term.  This all due to the consequences of garnering unwanted attention.

Case Study:

When Bark Avenue Hemp Treats started out, we used Bark Avenue CBD Dog Treats as a descriptor. And within a few months, products using the terminology “CBD” were starting to get flagged by numerous organizations. We had our credit card processing shut down; the denial and or ending of listing products on platforms such as Amazon and EBay; and the dis-allowing the promotion of our Facebook advertising page.  In a similar fashion, Google Ad Words soon followed.

So, these are just some of the examples of what operators in the cannabis space have to deal with.  Aside from the typical business fires that one has to douse on a day to day basis, we have those specific to an emerging market. So those of us who choose to work with products like this, despite it being “everywhere”, doesn’t mean it can be treated just like any other legal product on the market.  This is the main reason we started making a concerted effort to using “hemp”; sadly, just the general public just started opening their eyes to the terminology of “CBD”.  It’s a tricky, daily balancing act of trying to be a popular well known brand whilst flying under the radar; and –keeping abreast of the laws and expensive attorneys to keep one’s company out of trouble.

Consequently,  there was a large oil producing company that literally had to re-brand their company since it had “CBD” in its name. To this day, I only remember them by their original name…

CBD vs. Hemp

Thus far “hemp” has been the more accepted “innocent term” in contrast to CBD. But, people are still confused about CBD and hemp.

CBD is the active compounds extracted from the hemp plant via the oils. Hemp is a subset of the actual cannabis plant where the CBD’s are extracted. So, it’s a choice of whether to call it by the plant that supplies the active compounds or, to call it by the active ingredient extracted from the plant. But they are one and the same.

The beauty about the hemp plant is that it can be used for clothing, fiber, building material, a substitute for some plastics, and lastly for the oil.

Conclusion

If CBD becomes a proprietary term for use only by GW Pharmaceuticals, this will be a much more complicated market with made up monikers. This will further confuse the general public.  And it will a create a setback on any educational progress we have made about what is CBD good for.

Cannabis Dog Treats the Next Functional Dog Treats Trend?

Cannabis dog treat snacks with health-related claims are among the fastest growing new product launches.  Dog and cat owners who prioritize food product benefit statements are significantly more likely to strongly enjoy purchasing products that pamper their pets, according to the research director of Packaged Facts.¹

Update on the 2020 Marketplace: This segment has just exploded. It is saturated with manufacturers, companies looking to white label, and private label. Most of these private labelers do not have the in-depth knowledge about a product, unlike a direct manufacturer. Read for some tips to ensure you buy the safest and best quality pet product.

Studies

Research shows that the benefits of  CBD oil, also known as cannabidiol, include acting as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic agent, and is therefore a potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety and schizophrenia. ²

“…dogs do have the same natural cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid systems (ECS) as humans,” according to Dr. Lascelles. (The ECS involves physiological processes such as appetite, pain sensation, mood and memory.) These receptors are found in the dog’s brain and peripheral nervous system.³ 

Cannabis [sic] is becoming more widely accepted for its potential medical uses, not just for people, but for companion animals too. Scientists have so far recognized up to 60 important chemicals, or cannabinoids, unique to marijuana.  According to the National Cancer Institute, “cannabinoids activate specific receptors found throughout the body to produce pharmacologic effects, particularly in the central nervous system and the immune system.” These natural chemicals may be helpful in treating cancer-related symptoms such as pain.”4

CBD Oil Benefits

  • Seizures
  • Inflammation
  • GI Problems
  • Anxiety/ Stress
  • Pain
  • Limping
  • End of Life Care
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Poor Appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Hot Spots/ Skin & Coat

We use a full spectrum oil. The full spectrum version ensures the inclusion of all the benefits of the complete plant. This is known as the “Entourage Effect”.

Fun fact: Because we have similar endocannabinoid systems (ECS) to dogs cats, rats, pigs, etc. Therefore, big pharma uses them as test subjects to see how they will react. The ECS is responsible for mood, appetite, stress, anxiety and pain and other systems that put our bodies in homeostasis. Simply put–in balance.

CBD oil is an all natural alternative that is safe with very little side effects. The most common side effect would be diarrhea. But in contrast to vet prescriptions that lead to liver and kidney damage, this is a much safer alternative. This is nature at her finest.

Buying Guide

Cannabis is on the rise among dog owners who have ailing or aging dogs with chronic illnesses, they are looking for a natural solution in aiding pet wellness. We make our treats with whole ingredients. And have no preservatives or additives. We source our ingredients through sustainable sources to help do our share to protect the environment.

Our treats are manufactured in an SQF3 facility which is the highest rating for food safety standards. We make it in small controlled batches to ensure the highest safety and quality standards. The oil we use comes from a fully integrated grower, cultivator and manufacturer in Colorado. Even lab testing is done in-house.  This ensures full quality control and safety. Furthermore, we do third party testing on all product because we take your pet’s health seriously.

Product sold over the counter are made with industrial hemp oil.  Hemp is rich in cannabidiol and is non-psychoactive. It is safe with no reported overdoses or conflicts when mixed with other medication. The psychoactive versions can be found at dispensaries, typically in the recreational side. This is classified as marijuana. We highly recommend caution and do your due diligence. If you choose to dose your pet with the psychoactive version, consult your vet.

Tinctures

This is the oil that comes with a dropper and in a 1 or 2 ounce bottle. It is given orally or mixed in with your pet’s food. It is mixed with a carrier oil, typically like coconut oil. This binds to the CBD compounds and give is a nice uniform consistency.

If you choose this route, we suggest looking for a dropper with graduations. The dropper method isn’t the most accurate. There are 20 drops to a 1 ml dropper. Dogs do not typically enjoy the flavor associated with tinctures.

Edibles

This would be a hard baked cookie, soft chew or any other infused form. Regardless of which form you dispense your pet’s meds, it will be a personal choice, as well as ease and convenience. This is usually easier to dose and give to your pet like any other regular treat.

Projection 2017

We believe that this emerging market will be a big player in the functional treat market. It will explode once CBD gets re-classified.  For now, cannabis in all forms, even industrial hemp where CBD oil for dogs is extracted from, is considered a Schedule I drug.  Hemp and the marijuana plant fall under the cannabis umbrella until further notice. Sadly, even though hemp has no psychoactive effects.

But that does not mean that hypocrisy doesn’t fall short on the government. They are saying that there are no medicinal benefits to the marijuana plant. This is their whole premise for classifying it as a Schedule I controlled substance. Yet, they own Patent No. 6,630,507. The very same government owning a patent for medical use for marijuana. In the meantime, business that operate in the gray areas of the cannabis industry have to deal with overlapping industries that often do not understand our restraints.

Update: The Hemp Farming Act of 2018

Since this bill was passed, hemp was removed a Schedule I substance. Hemp is defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC. It legalized the production of hemp. This law did not address the processing of hemp or the manufacture, distribution and sale of products made from hemp. This is why there are still so many gaps and unresolved issues especially with the sale of these types of products. It is a step in the right direction, but there is still a lot of obstacles and challenges.

Hemp can be used for textiles, rope, clothing, food, biofuel, insulation, shoes, bioplastics and much, much more. We are going to see an expansion of hemp into these industries in the future.

Also, the banking industry needs to follow any progress made on the federal level. We did notice one improvement, the increased in the number of payment processing companies. And their fees have also been much more competitive. The underwriting process has also not been as extensive as it was previously. Even Square the popular counterpart to Stripe, has joined in the game.

We will continue to keep our readers posted for new developments.

Blog Talk Radio Live: CBD Dog Treats

Bark Avenue Hemp Treats Featured on Blog Talk Radio Live about CBD Dog Treats | Wooden Pants Network for the Unfrustrated Entrepreneur, April 14, 2017

Below are just some highlights of the entire blog talk. Some of the topics covered:

What is the main difference between hemp and cannabis?

Where did the idea come from to make healthy dog treat recipes with CBD?

What lessons has she learned in starting this business?

Where does Jennifer the edible hemp industry going?

What is Bark Avenue Hemp Treats’ purpose?

Hemp oil is known not to be the most palatable or great tasting. And– we all know what it is like to try to give a pet their medicine. Our main purpose is to start with healthy dog treat recipes, and produce a great tasting treat that are easy to feed without any animal push back. And we pride ourselves in creating the safest and best quality CBD dog treat on the market.

For instance, our manufacturing process is done in an SQF3 facility which is the highest food safety rating you can get.

What makes up your healthy dog treat recipes?

If you look at the ingredient panel on the back our our packaging, only whole food ingredients are listed. Items that you and I understand as ingredients that we consume daily. There are no added flavors or preservatives.

Some of our clients have even tried it for themselves and said it takes pretty good!

What hurdles has Jennifer encountered in starting her business?

I have never been to Colorado. I knew nothing about the cannabis industry. How does the cannabis operate? How do I grow my network? Where can I learn about this industry from zero? Where do I start? These were the fist and foremost hurdles I had to figure out.

Next was trying to understand Colorado Law and Federal Law. In the beginning there were no laws on CBD since no one knew what this was. Let alone try to find oil producers that produced the best quality oil you could get with the technology that was available.

The banking issue was another huge obstacle to explore and find constant solutions for. You can’t have a business with no payment structure in place. The laws were just constantly changing in the marijuana space but nothing really in effect for CBD. Of course, this all changed and it is still changing and evolving. It is a matter of trying to stay ahead of the curve. 

How important is marketing and trade shows in this industry?

Right now this is our main platform for educating the general public. As the industry grows and matures, then it won’t be so much about education but marketing.

CBD DOG TREATS: The Newest Trend in Canine Medicine?

  • What is CBD?
  • CBD Oil Benefits
  • Bark Avenue CBD Dog Treats
  • CBD for Dogs- Good or Bad?  

Owners will do anything to ensure the happiness and health of their pets. In today’s pet market, treats infused with cannabis are helping sick pets deal with their chronic pain. Is CBD dog treats the newest trend in Canine Medicine?

Vets won’t be prescribing weed anytime soon. But the marijuana market has expanded to include patients of the canine variety. There has been success with medical cannabis on cancer patients with chronic illnesses. This has led people to believe that weed products can provide the same relief to their pets. The cannabis compound known as CBD offers health benefits found in medical marijuana, without the side effects. CBD dog treats can provide relief from illnesses that limit mobility, lower energy levels and cause overall discomfort. Denver-based Bark Avenue Hemp Treats is one of the many companies that has entered the CBD pet market by creating a line of specialized dog treats. They believe that the restorative powers of the CBD will work just as well for dogs, as it does for humans.

What is CBD?

CBD and THC are the primary compounds found in the cannabis plant. THC is the highest occurring compound, and it generates the “buzz”. On the other end of the spectrum is CBD. CBD is not a psychoactive stimulus. Therefore it does not get you “high”. Instead, it provides calm and pain relief without the heady effects.

CBD tinctures, and edibles have become popular treatment options for humans and pets because of the small doses of THC. Albeit a let down to recreational cannabis users. It is this unique feature of CBD is what makes it an appealing remedy.

CBD works by binding to the receptors within your body that make up the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS regulates appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. Both humans and dogs have this similar internal natural system. These specific receptors are primarily located in the brain, central nervous system, organs, and immune cells. Simply put, the CBD compound interacts naturally with the immune and nervous systems.  Hence, both humans and dogs benefit from the calming and relaxing benefits of cannabis therapy.

CBD Oil Benefits

There are many reasons people are seeking out CBD treats for their dogs, from managing painful post-op care to dealing with weak bones. CBD is proving the relief that these pups need, without all the side effects of medications. Products made with CBD extracts have opened up a whole new channel for pet parents who want to explore more natural remedies.

CBD oil can be made into a variety of treatment options. Products taken orally such as tinctures, edibles, or oils. Topical creams and salves provide localized relief for animals with dry cracked noses and paws.  Products infused with CBD oil have been shown to provide relief for a broad range of ailments and symptoms, including, not but limited to:

Arthritis in Dogs

Achy joints, arthritis, or other illnesses can cause our pets to want to slow down. CBD treats can alleviate these joint pains and have them moving around again. The compound in CBD is a potent pain reliever because of its anti-inflammatory properties. It doesn’t just mask the pain, but it helps soothe chronic pain that prevents the body from healing properly.Arthritis in Dogs

Dog Anxiety

The calming effects of CBD work well with dogs who struggle with separation anxiety, depression, and noise phobias. Dogs who experience severe separation anxiety are often depressed or anxious. When their guardians leave them alone, it may result in disruptive and destructive behaviors. Examples include drooling, urinating, barking, chewing on objects and pacing. People have given CBD dog treats to their pets during high-stress situations (i.e. home alone, thunderstorms or fireworks) to help them relax and get through the particular stressor.

Calming hemp snacks

Loss of appetite

Many dog owners have used CBD treats to boost appetite and reduce nausea in dogs that won’t eat. CBD is sensitive enough to ease digestive issues while providing the necessary pain relief. This is perfect for the dog-won’t-eat-his-food-but-will-eat-treats scenario.

what does CBD do for dogs

Anti-Inflammatory agent for dogs

CBD interacts with receptors in the brain, and central nervous system. It also cooperates with organs and acts as a calming immune-boosting agent. Some veterinarians have even used CBD hemp products as an anti-inflammatory medication to assist during post-operative care.

Aggressive behavior

CBD-infused products can help with minimizing aggressive behaviors and stress disorders. It can helping calm down a dog who struggles with controlling their temper.calming hemp snacks for Angry dog

Dog seizures

One CBD remedy that surprises many pet owners that it is used to treat dogs who suffer from seizures. Products with high levels of CBD can help manage seizures due to epilepsy or other genetic disorders. There have been numerous cases of cannabis managing and reducing the frequency of seizures in humans and animals.

Cancer Pain

Cannabis products help mitigate some of the symptoms associated with cancer such as nausea, loss of appetite, or chronic pain. No owner wants to see their pet deal with the side effects that come with a cancer diagnosis. Pet parents are seeing great results with CBD products because it’s helping their pets feel more comfortable during these difficult times.

CBD-infused pet products give dog owners a choice instead of conventional drugs. Giving smaller doses of CBD, instead of regular pet medications, can lessen the side effects that may occur with larger doses of traditional medicines. “Owners just want their pets to be happy,” Jennifer told SimpleWag in a phone interview. “For older animals, these treats make them comfortable, and it takes a bit of the edge off.”

Bark Avenue CBD Dog Treats

Jennifer Chiongbian, Bark Avenue CBD Dog Treats CEO, with her impressive culinary skills and passion for animals created a brand dedicated to making high quality functional treats.  Jennifer’s CBD Dog Treats is the first formula specially designed for larger breeds that combine CBD and hip-joint relief properties into one product. Her CBD dog treats are made in an SQF3 manufacturing with the highest safety and food quality standards.

As a lifelong pet owner, she has formed a pretty good idea of what dogs can and cannot eat. Jennifer uses human grade ingredients with no additives or preservatives for all her Bark Avenue CBD Dog Treats. She understands the importance pet owners place on feeding their dogs all-natural, high-quality treats. She also consulted a qualified veterinarian to make sure she was creating a wholesome, well-balanced dog treat.

All her CBD oils from reputable sources that conduct third party testing to ensure the THC and CBD levels are appropriate for pets. Bark Avenue’s CBD oils are tested for cannabinoid potency, pesticides, heavy metals, bacterial content and mycotoxins (mold).

CBD for Dogs- Good or Bad?

CBD products are a safe, alternative for pet parents who want more transparent treatment options for their four-legged family member. Jennifer believes that the level of openness to cannabis-based products depends on the general social environment. Take for example Colorado, the mecca of the U.S. cannabis industry, therefore people are more open to treating their dogs with CBD products. Many individuals who use cannabis-based products for their pain management know the benefits and are keen on sharing it with their dogs. “Why can’t my dog get to experience the same benefits I do?”

On the other hand, some of her old colleagues in New York prefer to use more traditional pet medicine, refusing even to try Jennifer’s Bark Avenue treats.

Bark Avenue Hemp Treats caters locally to nationwide and . However, with a planned expansion later this year, she plans to take full advantage of the expanding CBD dog treat market.

CBD Reviews

Here are some Bark Avenue Hemp treat customer’s testimonials. The majority of the responses she has received have been positive and appreciative. Most pet owners claim that her CBD products have significantly improved the quality of life and mobility of their pet. A happy customer commented, “Love this product! I have a ten-year-old dachshund with a leg birth defect. I tried this product, and I noticed the difference in him being able to navigate the stairs much more easily. Also noticed a spring in his step. And loves to beg for more.”

Another customer, Candy, shared her positive experience with Bark Avenue CBD Dog Treats and how it reduced her aging dog’s painful symptoms, “These CBD treats are great! My dog is doing so much better..He is an old dog, and I would like him to be as comfortable as possible, and this is the only thing that is helping him.”

While Erica, another satisfied customer, uses the CBD-infused treats for both of her dogs. “I have a medium sized Poodle and a Siberian husky.  They go absolutely nuts for these treats. They love every flavor! My poodle has the tendency to bark at the wind, and these treats have a nice, calming effect with him. Both dogs don’t exhibit any digestive issues, which is great because my poodle has a sensitive stomach. Such an incredible value with so many benefits!”

Conclusion

Bark Avenue’s CBD Dog Treats have provided comfort and relief to hundreds of dogs and their owners. They saw a need for all-natural CBD dog treats and filled it.  This was also a chance to provide pet parents an alternative pain management option. However, even with all the success stories, the lack of proper research is a big concern for both vets and pet parents. Cannabis remains a Schedule I drug in the US, and that’s why veterinarians are hesitant to prescribe any cannabis-based medicine. This will change in the very near future. It will take at least half a decade to see any promising scientific advancement regarding medicinal cannabinoid use for pets.

Until then, people will continue to rely on the testimonials of dog owners who have tried these products. “Dogs can’t talk, but humans can,” Jennifer says. Pet owners are very sensitive to the body language of their pets, and know if something is awry.

Cannabis medicine will continue to develop. What people need now is assurance that the effects of the cannabis products will not harm their pets. The important thing is to understand is the promising medicinal benefits CBD can provide pets. As Jennifer points out, “The good thing is when you’re educating people you’re ahead of the curve. But you have to do your due diligence.”

Cannabis is not going away anytime soon. Therefore, pet owners should consider all sides of the issue when thinking about giving CBD products to their pets.

“We chose Super Zoo to launch our product onto the national stage because of its attendance size,” said Jennifer Chiongbian. The Founder/ Chef of canine CBD treats  adds, “More importantly to seize the opportunity to educate pet retailers and the general public on the benefits of the cannabinoids in hemp as an alternative all-natural pet treatment, and debunk the myths from the facts and clear up some confusion about marijuana versus hemp.”

Update: We are donating 12 FREE bags to senior rescue dogs. Just show us a copy of your adoption papers. Any dog over 8 years old qualifies. Are you a dog rescue near me? Ask us how we can help! We love seniors!

What Canine CBD Treats Can Do For Your Pet

The cannabinoids in the cannabis plant can provide powerful medicinal value when a full spectrum oil is used. This ensures the inclusion of all the beneficial compounds, also known as the “Entourage Effect”.

How does it help? All living things have an endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short. It is a neuro-receptor system in dogs, cats, and people that regulate mood, appetite, pain, etc. Very simply put, CBD creates homeostasis or balance within the ECS.

If a pet is dealing with certain chronic illnesses, this all-natural treatment may be the perfect natural solution for:

  • Seizures
  • Inflammation
  • Gastro Intestinal Problems
  • Anxiety/ Stress
  • Pain
  • Limping
  • End of Life Care
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Poor Appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Degenerative Joint Disease

Review

“I love this product! I have a dog that just turned 17 years old. He has a lot of health problems. I thought I was going to have to put him down but my son told me about these CBD dog treats. He has arthritis, pain, limping, inflammation, GI problems, cataracts, and tumors all over his body. My baby needed help bad! It was a miracle! My baby was up playing & acting like a puppy again, and his tumors are shrinking. His cataracts are doing better, and just over all- better. Thanks to Bark Avenue!!!”-Candy D.
