The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a drastic increase in the number of first-time dog owners, with many of the dogs coming from shelters and rescues. This increases the likelihood of emotional scarring and behavioral issues, with older dogs suffering aches and pains.
Pet wellness company Kitsie targets pandemic-induced anxiety and stress with its line of premium pet CBD products. Among its lineup are a CBD oil that can be sprayed directly onto a pet’s gums, on food or in water; calming dog bites; and a paw and hot spot balm.
At the same time, the pet separation anxiety expected to accompany our return to normalcy is to dogs what panic attacks are to humans. Those chewed up pillows, accidents on the carpet and half-eaten shoes? That’s what stress looks like.
“Animals act out not from naughtiness, but because they are highly stressed and panicked,” explained Kitsie adviser and veterinarian Dr. David Jamael.
Kitsie’s CBD-infused oils, balms and dog treats alleviate the stress and anxiety that are the sources of dog aggression and misbehavior.
“For everyone involved in Kitsie, this is personal. We’re all about our dogs,” said Kitsie CEO and co-founder Nik Topolovec. “Pet CBD is the future, but the key is that it has to be pure, with zero THC, and dosing needs to be accurate.”
Kitsie’s CBD products — which are vegan, THC-free, non-GMO, cruelty-free and source all-natural ingredients manufactured in the United States – have also been shown to decrease chronic pain, inflammation, joint stiffness and soreness.
Pet wellness company Kitsie has earned the support of a diverse group of influential pet parents including former NFL running back and future Hall of Famer Marshawn Lynch, current NFL quarterback Josh Johnson, record executive Steven Victor and fashion design icon Christopher Bevans, among others.
“Pet wellness is real. Pets deal with a lot of the same stress we do as humans, ya’ feel me?” stressed Lynch, owner of multiple dogs over the years. “I don’t have kids, but my pups have been like my kids for sure. I’ve seen the good that Kitsie CBD products have had on them, so when I hear a lot of dogs are facing all these different issues on a daily basis, I want people to know there’s a product out there that can help them out.”
While Kitsie’s pet CBD products are available online for home delivery in the United States (excluding Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota), they are also available for wholesale purchase by contacting the company via email at [email protected].
