If you’re unfamiliar with CBD, or cannabidiol, let’s start with the basics: It’s not going to get your cat high. That’s because it’s not psychoactive like fellow canniboid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), according to Health.com.

Cbd treats for cats

We love our pets and so do you. CBD can be an effective treatment for similar conditions in our pets as it does for us. This includes; seizures, nausea, stress, anxiety, arthritis , back pain, symptoms of cancer, gastrointestinal issues, etc. For a long time, Miss Envy has had these amazing CBD treats, Bully Bits, that are specially formulated for dogs, as well as a CBD tincture for pets. But now, Miss Envy is introducing CBD cat treats called Kitty Bittys for our special furry felines.

These salmon flavoured CBD treats are formulated with your furry feline in mind. We use only the finest of ingredients because our furry loved ones deserve nothing but the best! These treats are 100% fair trade, organic, gluten, grain, soy-free, with no fillers or artificial flavours and infused with solvent-free CBD and love.

CBD for cats: How to use and dosage

Kitty Bittys CBD cat treats come in a 56 g package and each treat contains approximately 1 mg of CBD. There is no exact accepted dose of CBD for pets. The appropriate dose will vary based on what you are treating as well as the size of your cat. The suggested dose (as marked on the package) is 2-3 treats for cats under five pounds, 4-6 treats for cats between five and ten pounds and 6-8 treats for cats between ten and fifteen pounds. But we recommend speaking to your trusted veterinarian to see how CBD can help your furry feline. Note that as with humans CBD has the potential to interact with existing medication. So, if your pet is currently taking veterinary prescribed mediation, speak to your vet before adding CBD to their wellness routine.

More information about the research surrounding the safe use of CBD for pets will be coming out in our cannabis education section on our website soon.

How do cats feel about Kitty Bittys?

I have a beautiful, but also very angsty, tuxedo cat named Rocket. He was rescued from the SPCA just over a year ago. When he was first adopted he was untrusting, aggressive and had issues with food scarcity. He did not know how to effectively communicate his boundaries which ended with more than a few wounds on our end. Although he has slowly learned to trust me over the last year and has responded well to my training I would still consider him to be a sensitive boy with quite a lot of angst.

These Kitty Bittys are the perfect cat treats to help keep him calm. I imagine they will just what he needs for those extra stressful situations, like the car ride to the vet. At first, he wasn’t so sure what he thought of them (they do smell a little funny) but once he got used to them he was all for it. While I was looking at the package to write this article he came over and gently pawed at the container asking me for a few.

CBD Tinctures for pets

If you try these treats and your cat doesn’t take a liking to them CBD tinctures are a great alternative. CBD tinctures can be added to their favourite food or treats and will give them all the healing and calming benefits of CBD. With the tincture, we recommend starting with 1-2 drops and slowly increasing to find the most effective dose for your pet. Though remember because it is hemp-derived CBD they will not experience any psychoactive effects.

CBD is a safe an effective treatment for our pets. Miss Envy is introducing new CBD cat treats specially formulated for your furry felines.
