    Healing Pets Naturally: Treatibles CBD Dog Treats

    Best Bully Sticks recently added a exciting new line of dog treats to our website: Treatibles CBD dog treats. This guest post is written by Treatibles expert, Marjorie Fischer.

    Maddy Treatibles ambassadorIn 2010 my sister got her second child, a gorgeous spotted Australian Shepherd named Matilda, or Maddy as she became known. Maddy has soft fluffy hair, bright wise eyes, and protects all of us like we are her cubs. She has hilarious tendencies like climbing on top of the couch to watch birds like a cat and attempting to make friends with squirrels in the backyard instead of chasing them.

    Right away we noticed that she couldn’t stand to be left alone. She would vacillate between aggression and anxiety sometimes tearing up the house and obsessively running up and down the stairs till she limped or howling and crying for hours on end by the door. All reported by the not so happy neighbors. It was torture to leave her, especially if you were the last one out.  She would try sticking her nose and paws in between the door to stop you. When our company started making Treatibles pet treats infused with CBD, I knew Maddy could benefit and hoped the treats would calm the anxiety in poor Maddy, and therefore my sister too.

    Tons of dogs suffer from similar separation anxiety just like Maddy does. Every time their human companions leave the house, they panic and become inconsolable, causing anxiety in both the animals and their owners. Dogs also have lots of situational anxiety that comes out as a result of an event or trip. Riding in the car, going to the vet or groomer, meeting and playing with other dogs, introducing a new child or animal into the house, having company over, or just simply turning on the vacuum or hearing a doorbell can cause anxiety in our beloved animals. 

    After using the first dose of Treatibles on Maddy all the anxiety disappeared and when we went to leave the house she was calmly sitting on the couch looking out at the birds and all we got was a loving glance before walking out. This continued and has to this day and now the anxiety my sister used to be riddled with all day at work is gone, just like Maddy’s. Both of them can now feel comfortable and calm through out the day when they are apart and enjoy less clinginess when they are together.  It’s been transformative for the whole family, and the neighbors too.

    We know when your animal is suffering, you are too, which is why having a solution that brings benefit to your animals in turn helps harmonize the whole family.

    Treatibles 2 kinds

    The most important and beneficial ingredient in Treatibles pet treats is CBD.  CBD (cannbidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid or compound that is found in the hemp plant and provides a broad spectrum of benefits to animals including relief from anxiety, panic, and trauma. It also helps create balance, calm, and increased vitality.

    Every animal except insects has an endocannabinoid system spread throughout the body. From the tips of the ears, throughout the brain, body, paws, and tail these receptors form a network.  Our bodies and animals’ bodies produce small amounts of these cannabinoids very much like the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Therefore, the receptors found throughout the body all respond to these plant phytocannabinoids when they enter the body just as they do with our bodies’ natural cannabinoids. The phytocannabinoids communicate with the endocannabinoid system when they enter the body and bind to the receptors that need them most and thus cause the broad range of beneficial results experienced. The endocannabinoid system also helps to regulate all homeostatic functions. Without homeostasis, our feedback mechanisms stop working which results in disease, inflammation, autoimmune disease, epilepsy, stress, anxiety, and all states of imbalance.

    Often in disease states, or varies states of imbalance, our bodies need assistance with this regulation and need help outside of the body. Plant phytocannabinoids like CBD are a healthy, nontoxic way to assist this process by supporting any level of acute or chronic disease and imbalance in the body of a human or animal.

    treatibles offered in handAt Treatibles, we genuinely care about the health and wellbeing of your animals and are animal owners ourselves. We created a product that not only provides these benefits from CBD but is also delicious and easy to administer. We all know how challenging and anxiety inducing giving medicine to our animals can be for everyone. This is why we crafted recipes for our pumpkin and blueberry treats that would taste so amazing that animals would be thrilled and excited to eat the treats. They are made with whole foods and are vegan, gluten free, free of preservatives, and human grade. We only want to feed our animals the same nutritious foods we would eat ourselves.

    The treats come in two sizes, small for animals up to 50lbs and large for animals’ 50lbs or more. Maddy weighs about 60lbs, so we give her 2 ½ large treats twice a day, which is the perfect amount for her. Serving instructions are in detail on the bag for you.

    Our products are triple lab tested and made with a lot of love. We hope you will give them a try for your animal companion today. Please also visit our website for more extensive information on CBD, cannabinoids, and our products.

      Wishing you and your animals harmony, happiness, and good health!

    How Can I Keep My Cat From Getting Litter Everywhere?

    Dear Most Esteemed and Knowledgeable Kitties:

    How do I stop my cat, Lucky, from kicking his litter out of his litter box? It’s starting to wreck my floors and I really don’t want to have to pay for my floors to get fixed.

    ~ Les-Leigh

    Thomas: Litter kicking is a natural part of litter box behavior, because it’s a part of burying our waste. However, when the kicking gets litter all over the floor, that can present a problem. But fear not: We have some tips for you!

    Bella: First things first: one very common litter box mistake that people make is to get a litter box that’s too small. Your adult cat isn’t going to fit into the little box you got him when he was a kitten.

    Nature's Miracle High-Sided Litter PanTara: So, Les-Leigh, our first recommendation is that you get a larger and high-sided litter box. One such box is the Nature’s Miracle High-Sided Litter Box — we recommend this one because it’s the one we use, and Mama finds that it keeps the litter in because it’s big enough for us and the sides are almost a foot high.

    Thomas: You can get this litter box online or through your local pet store.

    Bella: Another option that a lot of people use is to turn a large storage tote into a litter box because that’s got really high sides! You can find instructions on how to make a litter box out of a storage tote here. (We’d recommend using a see-through tote and not putting a hood on top.)

    Tara: Another thing you should do is get a litter mat or put down a good-size throw rug under the litter box to catch the litter particles.

    Thomas: Mama and her sister have had good luck with simple IKEA Hampen throw rugs (which come in a variety of colors) when trying to keep litter off hardwood or linoleum floors.

    Bella: But here in our new house where we have carpets everywhere, Mama has turned to the Blackhole Litter Mat, which is an awesome two-layer mat that sweeps litter off cats’ paws when they walk out of the box and keeps it in another layer that allows you to simply dump the litter into the garbage from time to time.

    Tara: One other thing to check: Have you been putting too much or too little litter in your box? Cats prefer 2 to 3 inches of litter in their box.

    Thomas: More than that depth is wasteful because the extra will get kicked out. But if your cat’s litter is too shallow, he’s going to have to kick it all over the place to find enough litter to adequately bury his waste.

    Bella: You’ll also want to consider which litter you’re using. Some litters — clay ones, for example — are more abrasive than grain-based litters and could cause more damage to your floors.

    Tara: Also, wood or paper pellets tend to go flying very easily. Cats prefer a sandy substrate rather than one with big lumps they have to walk on. Sandy litters also make it easier to bury waste.

    Thomas: So, Les-Leigh, try getting a larger, high-sided litter box or making one from a storage container; use throw rugs or litter mats to keep the litter off the floor; and if you’re not using a sandy or fine-textured litter, try that, too.

    Bella: Do you other readers have any tips about how Les-Leigh can keep her kitty from kicking litter all over the place? What’s worked for you?

    Tara: Please share your experiences in the comments!

    Dog Chew Recall: Dingo Chip Twists – Due to Possible Contamination of Amantadine, a Human Antiviral Drug Used to Treat Parkinson’s

    Dog Chew Recall:  Dingo Chip Twists “Chicken in the Middle” Because this recall is a Class III recall, the company does NOT have to make it public.     dingo

    The following is an excerpt and photo from Susan Thixton,, as she informs everyone about the NON-PUBLICIZED dog chew recall:

    Dingo Chip Twists “Chicken in the Middle” Class III recall (not publicized) recall of a dog treat – “product may be contaminated with Amantadine, an antiviral human drug not approved for use in animal food.”

    This recall was found on the FDA website Enforcement Report but not found as a press release (anywhere). The FDA told me “The FDA’s Regulatory Procedures Manual does not require that a company notify the FDA or issue a press release for Class II or III recalls, although we encourage companies to do so. Class II is a situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote. Class III is a situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences.”
