Why use Hemp Seed Oil for Your Pet?

Hemp Seed Oil is a great nutritional addition to maintain your dog or cat’s health. Unlike CBD which contains THC and cannabinoids, Hemp Seed Oil is pure and cold pressed straight from the hemp plant seeds, meaning it has no psychoactive ingredients with no additives or harmful manufacturing processes. As a result, the oil is a pure, all natural, nutrient dense substance fit for your pet’s consumption.

Why give Hemp Seed Oil to Pets?

Hemp has been used for centuries for several reasons from medicinal purposes to clothing and textiles. The reason it was used all those years ago and continues to this day is because it has amazing health benefits, is great for the environment and is all natural! In today’s society where everything is mass produced and manufactured, it is a comfort to know you are giving your pet's diet the natural boost it needs.

Hemp seeds are full of beneficial and nutrient dense properties that support your pet’s health and wellness. From the outside you will see a difference in their temperament, skin and coat health but on the inside amazing things are happening too!

Ingredients and the Benefits for your Pet

Hemp Seed Oil is rich in two essential fatty acids, Alpha-Linolenic acid (Omega-3) and Linoleic acid (Omega-6), the fatty acids you want in your diet, with a ratio of 3:1 of Omega 3 and Omega 6. Being polyunsaturated fats, these cannot be produced naturally by our body and need to be included in our diet. This is also true for our pets! Hemp seed oil also contains Omega 9, a monounsaturated fat. 

Gamma Linolenic Acid or GLA is a specific type of fatty acid found within Omega 6. It has anti-inflammatory properties and nourishes cells, making it essential for a healthy functioning body. The omega acids help aid your pet’s health in supporting healthy looking skin and shiny coats.

Hemp Seed Oil is the only plant-based protein source to contain all 20 amino acids. This includes 9 essential amino acids our pets cannot produce therefore making it an amazing addition to their diet. Not only that, it also contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including chlorophyll, which is good for digestion and gut health, boosting your pets overall health.

When to give Hemp Seed Oil to your Pet

Hemp Seed Oil is best taken as a daily diet feed supplement over time. The feeding amount varies with the size and weight of your pet. Always check the recommended amount suitable for your pet. It is recommended to check with your vet about your pet’s health. Overall Hemp Seed Oil promotes a happier and healthier life for your pets, and they will thank you for the health benefits they feel from taking it.
