Austin & Kat all started while founder, Kat Donatello, was searching for a supplement to help her aging dog, Brady. After extensive research and talks with her veterinarian, she worked vigorously to make the perfect HEMP biscuits for her dog. She saw drastic improvements with senior dog Brady after taking CBD. Brady has since passed but her new puppy, Austin, now enjoys the same benefits from what are now Austin & Kat CBD dog biscuits.
What is CBD? CBD is short for Cannabidiol - a compound that is found in HEMP and cannabis. CBD is a natural substance that interacts with a pet's endocannabinoid system to create physical changes in the body that can be highly beneficial.
Our pet's endocannabinoid system is the central regulatory system that affects bodily processes like digestion, mood, sleep, pain, inflammation, and anxiety. CBD also contains Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and antioxidants which have ant-inflammatory properties.
I decided to give Shiner Austin & Kat's CBD Infused Dog Biscuits for arthritis, better sleep, inflammation, and to calm her down a bit. Shiner is already quite calm, but as of late she has been licking her feet like crazy. I am hoping the CBD will help her to quit licking as much and soothe the inflammation on her toes from the licking. I do think it's helping and I would like to continue giving her the biscuits for longer.
I did have great success giving her an Austin & Kat biscuit one night. It was late in the middle of the night and Shiner began to have another one of her strange "episodes". She couldn't get comfortable and was restless. If you remember, the last time this happened she had acupuncture. The vet believes it could be due to back and/or neck pain. The first time it occurred, it took her over an hour to finally lay down in one spot.
When I noticed her exhibiting the behavior again, I gave her a CBD biscuit and it helped tremendously. She quieted down very quickly and was able to get comfortable in a short amount of time.
I know what many of you are probably thinking - can CBD make my dog high? The answer is no. CBD is a phytocannabinoid that is non-psychotoxic, which means there are no feelings of euphoria. Austin & Kat's CBD Infused Dog Biscuits are safe, non-toxic, and non-habit forming. They've worked very hard on creating the perfect formula and dosage of CBD for dogs in their biscuits.
If your dog takes other medications and you're worried if CBD is OK to give along with them, consult your veterinarian.
If you'd like to know more about CBD for dogs, I recommend visiting Austin & Kat's website. There is a lot of good information on the subject there.
Austin & Kat's CBD Infused Wellness Dog Biscuits are small batch baked in Maine. The biscuits contain hemp extract, coconut oil, oats, apples, peanut butter, cinnamon, and turmeric. They are available in 5mg and 2mg biscuits so you can choose which is better suited for your dog's size.
