Even the questions you and your pet might not think to ask

How To Use CBD For Your Pet

What About Our Products?

Are they natural and gluten-free?

We source only the freshest local ingredients when available, making sure we live up to our own rigorous standards of the healthiest and most wholesome nutrition facts around, with recognizable ingredients.

While our products aren’t certified gluten-free, some of our biscuits are grain-free.

Here are a few more of our favorite callouts for each Austin and Kat product:

  • Biscuits: Gluten Free, Grain Free and made with Ancient Grains
  • Hemp seed and salmon CBD oil: Made with ethically sourced wild Alaskan Salmon oil
  • Extra strength oil: Made with USDA Certified Organic coconut oil

Does Austin and Kat lab test their products?

Oh yes! An independent, 3rd-party lab tests each and every batch of our biscuits.

My proprietary CBD oil blend is also independently tested before leaving the farm to ensure every batch meets every one of our Austin and Kat standards.

But it doesn’t end there. All of our test results are available online, so you can feel good about what you’re giving your pet.

Where is your CBD sourced?

Our hemp is sourced from our organic partner farms in Colorado.

Is your hemp organic?

You bet! Our hemp is grown and cultivated according to 100% organic practices that go beyond what the USDA requires to qualify as organic.

Do your biscuits have a shelf life?

You can store your biscuits in their sealed package for up to one and a half years or until the expiration date passes (and here’s a little secret—if you freeze them, they’ll last for up to two years). And let’s be honest—your pet is going to love them (and benefit from them) so much that you’ll be reordering long before they expire.

Just don’t store these in warm places, please! (That means you won’t want to keep them in that hot car in the middle of summer - we are looking at you, Arizona pups.)

What about the oils—what is their shelf life?

Our Salmon and Hemp Oil is preservative free stays fresh longer if refrigerated once opened. 

Unopened, it will last in a cool, dark pantry up to one and a half years, or until the expiration date passes. Once stored in the fridge after opening, your oil will last up to three months.

Our Extra Strength Coconut Oil is also preservative free, but it can be stored in a pantry.

If your oil is unopened, it will last in a cool, dark pantry up to one and a half years, or until the expiration date passes. When opened, it will last up to one year.

ps: No matter which oil you’ve got, you’ll always want to shake well before using!

How long after I give my pet CBD should I see results?

Every pet is different, so you’ll want to watch your pet to see how he or she responds. You could see results as soon as five minutes and as much as an hour after giving your pet CBD. If you don’t see any change in mood or behavior after an hour, you might try giving your pet another half dose. It may take a little time to fine-tune the dose that’s right for your pup, but the results will be worth it!

Are the results instant or cumulative?

Some pets will experience the benefits of CBD in as little as five minutes, but for pets with more severe symptoms, it may take as long as a week or two for your pet’s system to respond to daily servings.

What if I ate a biscuit? (Asking for a friend.)

You’re now an official member of the Austin and Kat pack. Welcome!

But really, our biscuits are made with human-grade ingredients and are always gluten free, so go ahead and keep snacking. Just don't be surprised if your pup gets a little jealous.

Alternatively, you might also want to check out our sister company, Mr. Moxey’s. They make some wonderfully tasty CBD herbal mints—for humans.

Is your CBD oil organic?

Yes! We’re proud to say that we’ve partnered with one of the leading CBD cultivators in the world.  From seed to finished product, using hemp that is grown to organic farming standards and practices, as well as full-spectrum ensures your pet will get the full benefit of the hemp plant's valuable cannabinoids.

Can I give Austin and Kat to my healthy pet?

Even a healthy human needs support every once in a while. Pets are no different! Think of all the times you might feel stress, and you can bet your pet might as well.

How about prescriptions? Is Austin and Kat safe to give with those?

At very high doses, research suggests that CBD may inhibit the CYP 450 liver enzymes, which aid in the proper metabolism of some pharmaceuticals. It’s not unique to CBD—things like grapefruit juice can do so, too. It may be okay in some instances, but ultimately, your vet may be the best person to answer this question.

How are the ingredients listed on Austin and Kat products?

Active ingredients are listed in descending order according to weight or volume. Inactive ingredients, however, are listed in alphabetical order.

Back up. What are inactive ingredients?

Inactive ingredients include everything from preservatives and thickeners to flavors, and more. Most often, they’re stabilizers. 

But don't worry, everything in our products come from nature, so you won't see any synthetic preservatives or colors here. Your pet's health comes first!
