WHO IS HEMPVET?
HEMPVET is a team of pet health professionals including a Board-Certified Animal nutritionist, veterinarians and pet lovers who joined hands with the goal of providing pet parents with holistic solutions that strengthen and support a pet’s everyday health. Our innovative formulations are based on scientific research and backed by decades of experience in animal health & wellness.
WHAT ARE THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF HEMPVET PRODUCTS?
HEMPVET supplements in soft chews, topical gels and oil formats are multi-action and formulated to provide a variety of health benefits. They are differentiated from the CBD/hemp competition by combining proprietary blends of organic Broad-Spectrum hemp with other exclusive active ingredients, including patent pending colostrum peptides sourced from managed Holstein herds. Hemp/CBD is just one of many phytocannabinoids that contribute to general health and wellness.
WHAT DOES MULTI-ACTION MEAN?
Multi-Acton means more than one active ingredient is combined in every product to magnify the benefits of the intended use: joint, calming, neurocognitive and immune system support.
HOW DOES COMBINING HEMP WITH OTHER ACTIVE INGREDIENTS UNIQULY SUPPORT PET HEALTH & WELLNESS?
Blending Broad-Spectrum hemp with other active ingredients allows us to create more powerful products. Our proprietary blend of organic hemp complex contains a full entourage of natural constituents that contribute to general health & wellness. Combined with other well-researched ingredients, our formulas are more powerful and benefit neurological and immune system wellness and support calming, relaxation, joint, mobility, cognitive and immune response health.
ARE HEMPVET PRODUCTS SAFE FOR ALL PETS AND CAN THEY MAKE THEM HIGH?
All HEMPVET soft chews, oils and gels are made with non-psychoactive organic broad-spectrum hemp. Hemp contains undetectable levels of THC. Our products cannot make your pet high!
HOW DID YOU DETERMNE DOSING RECOMMENDATIONS?
Dosing suggestions are based on scientific research according to the animals’ needs. Animal metabolism differs greatly from human models. Many CBD supplements are based on human not animal needs.
WHAT ARE THE LEVELS OF CBD?
Dosing levels range between 1mg and 5mg/dose depending on intended use of product. There is no standard or agreed upon scientifically proven CBD dosage that is right for every pet. In fact, high doses of CBD may lessen its effectiveness. The general rule of thumb for CBD level: “Go low & slow” & “less is more”.
ARE HEMPVET Products LEGAL FOR SALE AND USE IN ALL 50 STATES?
Yes, HEMPVET soft chews, oils and sprays are Federally legal for sales in all 50 states because they contain organic agricultural hemp not marijuana. However, there are about 5 states that have limited restrictions on the sale of ingestible hemp products.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AGRICULTURAL HEMP AND MARIJUANA?
Both plants have been proven to contain important health support properties and are derivative of the same plant, cannabis sativa. However, legally and chemically there is a significant difference between hemp and marijuana. Hemp, because of extremely low levels of THC (<0.3%), is federally legal, non-psychoactive (not intoxicating) and is used for hundreds of commercial purposes including fibers, foods, fabrics and more. Marijuana contains high levels of THC (>0.3%) is listed as a controlled substance and illegal in most states.

WHY IS HEMP IMPORTANT IN SUPPORTING HEALTH & WELLNESS?
Hemp is important because it contains very high levels of naturally occurring beneficial compounds called phytocannabinoids that support the endocannabinoid system and many parts of the body. Learn more about the benefits of hemp here
WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)?
The endocannabinoid system is a central regulatory system found throughout the body of all mammals. It is an important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining general health & wellness. Learn more about the ECS here
HOW ARE HEMPVET PRODUCTS MADE?
We "cold process" our soft chews, oils and gels. Cold processing means our ingredients are mixed at low temperatures to minimize thermal degradation of the plant material and optimize its nutritional value. This process helps to retain the bioavailability of nutrients.
ARE ALL HEMPVET PRODUCTS TESTED?
Yes, all Hempvet products are third-party laboratory tested in order to ensure the beneficial potency and premium quality of our products.
IF MY DOG HAS MULTIPLE AILMENTS, CAN IT TAKE MORE THAN ONE PRODUCT VARIETY?
Yes, it is safe to combine any of our products, but we recommend respecting the total recommended daily dosage. Your veterinarian is a valued partner in maintaining your pet's health and it is best to keep them aware of health support protocols.
WHOOPS, MY DOG TOOK MORE THAN THE RECOMMENDED DOSAGE.
Our products are extremely safe. However, because we don’t know the overall health condition of your pet, we always recommend making your veterinarian aware of changes in diet.
ARE THERE DIETARY OR ALLERGY RESTRICTIONS?
Our products are safe and free of most common allergens (wheat, nuts, dairy, soy). There are no known contraindications when combined with soft chews or pharmaceutical therapies. Questions regarding appropriate use of our products are best discussed with your veterinarian.
