Our Pet Formula tinctures are supplied in 10ml bottles. Each bottle contains 450mg of active CBD and is supplied with a dropper pipette cap.

Each pipette holds approximately 0.5ml, which translates to around 20 drops. Each drop holds approximately 1mg of active CBD.

While, due to the strict regulations around selling CBD products, it would be unethical for us to claim that CBD can be used to treat, cure or prevent any illnesses or diseases, we can provide anecdotal evidence as to the benefits CBD has shown to other pet owners.

Rather than regurgitate some of the thousands of positive stories of giving CBD to pets easily found with a simple Google search, we thought it would be better to talk about our own experience. which was the main reason why we decided to enter the industry in the first place.

Millie, our ten year old Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel.

Millie is our little baby, very much a daddy’s girl and a very spoilt little pooch! Around a year and a half ago, we noticed that she wasn’t herself. She was off her food, her mobility was getting worse and she was starting to struggle. After having a Blue Roan before who had cancer, we immediately feared the worst. Watching our last dog Beth slowly decline as the cancer took hold was soul destroying, and the chemotherapy and cocktail of pills had little effect. If anything, the treatment just made her seem worse.

The vet confirmed our fears, Millie had cancer and was also suffering severe renal problems. Operating wasn’t an option and it was basically a case of adjust her diet and make her last six months as comfortable as possible. It wasn’t long before she couldn’t get upon to the sofa for cuddles, climb the stairs or get up on to the bed to sleep. I did mention she was a spoilt pooch!

We were desperate, and after searching for anything that could help we came across CBD. We decided to ask the vet what they thought about giving her CBD tincture, worried we might receive a stern look and a telling off. We were a little shocked when the vet told us that although they had little practical experience in the subject, they had heard of positive results and that it was worth a try.

Buying CBD at that time was a minefield. It wasn’t clear what what the products were made from and what the actual strengths were, let alone what dose we should be giving to a dog! Fortunately our son James had experience with CBD products from his involvement as a manufacturer in the Electronic Cigarette industry. He was able to advise on what product would best amid the sea of offerings available, and together we were able to work out a dosage for Millie.

Quickly we noticed a change! Small at first, but a definite improvement. Glimmers of the old active Millie were starting to show through. Within a month she was jumping back on the sofa and climbing the stairs, happier and looking healthier!

Over a year later Millie is still with us. She still has her health complaints, not that you’d be able to tell though! She’s eating well, her mobility is still fantastic. honestly, CBD made her a different dog. And she has outlived her original 6 month prediction by a long way!

The good and the bad elements of this experience were what gave us the drive to get involved in the CBD industry. We have seen that CBD really works, but we have seen the difficulty in buying the right product because of the inconsistent information provided. It made sense to us to throw our hat in the ring, so to speak, but to build our business from the ground up around core pillars of honesty, transparency and ease for the consumer. The stigma around CBD and it’s link to cannabis has gone on for too long, building unnecessary barriers preventing people from experiencing the many benefits that this amazing product can provide. While many of the barriers still remain, PayPal for one make it impossible to sell CBD through their platform, we will persevere to bring you the best quality CBD products at the best possible prices.

Graham, James and Steve.
