HEMPVET, a hemp-derived cannabinoid pet product company, recently launched nine new pet wellness products including its first for cats and horses. Each of its new products is designed to address a specific issue, including anxiety, digestive disorders, hip and joint pain, inflammation and immune deficiencies through the use of organic hemp as its active ingredient.
For cats, HEMPVET now offers soft chews for anxiety reduction, hip and joint pain relief and immunity support. In the equine category, HEMPVET now provides powder-based remedies to reduce anxiety, hip and joint inflammation and digestive disorders. The expansion also includes a hemp-infused flea and tick spray and topical gel remedies which are all-natural and beneficial for both dogs and cats.
Acquired by multi-state cannabis operator Revolution Global in 2019, the company is filling gaps in the pet supplement and wellness market. In the past six months alone, HEMPVET has effectively doubled its assortment of offerings. “Hemp-derived pet products were unheard of only a few short years ago. Now swaths of CBD treatments are available at pet specialty retailers across the country,” said HEMPVET CEO Will Billings. “We believe that the industry has not even scratched the surface of the potential of hemp to improve animals’ lives. With this next phase of our growth, we are excited to treat a wider range of health concerns while providing pets with safe, natural alternatives to traditional medicines.”
The company is also currently developing a hemp-based bedding for pets of all sizes. The spongy, absorbent material will solve several problems associated with standard pet bedding: dust exposure, odor control, toxic chemical exposure and product life.
HEMPVET’s products are certified by the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) and created by board-certified animal nutritionist Gary Pusillo, who has managed the nutrition programs for 17 Kentucky Derby winners.
