Canna-Pets™
for your companion. ...they deserve it!

 

In the early Fall of 2003 we introduced our veterinary product to the market. Apparently our years of research & development were on target given the warmth with which Canna-Pets has been received by pet owners, veterinarians, groomers and distributors. Humans taking our SoftGel product are so impressed with their own results that they wish to assist their pet in the same fashion as well.

Pets are People too. All too often people forget that their life companions suffer many of the same maladies that their owners do- they just don’t complain. We could not find a substantial health supplement on the market formulated specifically to address complaints suffered by our canine and feline companions, so we developed one!

Our unique blend of fine grade cannabis sativa oils are suited for all small animals and have been researched for & reported to:



~ eliminate spot baldness problems
~ restore coat where baldness had been a problem
~ reduce symptoms of arthritis and get your pet active again
~ immediately improve coat with a healthy new sheen and glow
~ instill a new vigor and zest for life in your pet
~ many more breed specific benefits...


We have received a tremendous number of reports on the improvements in pet health with
Canna-Pets™. Stories such as lame dogs running again, nearly blind dogs again leading normal lives, skin and coat conditions improved- even one miraculous recovery from Halitosis..we have been thanked by many. Read a few in our Reports section..

Recommended Daily Intake: For animals up to 20 pounds body weight- 5 mils per day either taken alone or mixed with food. Daily intake to increase in direct proportion to body weight. Some animals may experience a "loose bowel" when dosing is initiated. If this is an issue, gradually work up to full dose over two week period.
