One of our biggest reasons for creating high quality CBD products is for our pets. Fully Activated has a long family history of fostering dogs and cats and rehabilitating animals with CBD, and we want to share our experience with you.
The first major source of inspiration for launching Fully Activated was our founder Nick’s dog, Buca. Buca was an intelligent full-blooded pitbull and a great companion. She was placed on a regular regiment of CBD her entire life and Nick believes this was key to her health. As she grew older, Buca naturally slowed down, but she never got sick and always maintained a fervor for life. She eventually died of old age, and this was the kick Nick needed to completely launch Fully Activated. Our CBD pet line, Buca's Biscuits, was named in her honor.
Nick and his wife Courtney have since adopted and fostered several dogs, all of which are offered a CBD-rich diet. One of their dogs, Tigger, unfortunately suffers from tumors. Nick and Courtney administer a daily regiment for Tigger and their other animals to help with immune support and symptom mitigation.
If you're looking for a regimen for your animal, we've provided a list of dosages, supplements, vitamins & minerals that may be beneficial to your pet's healing. This pet health regimen is based on Nick and Courtney's experience, and you should always consult a veterinarian before altering your pet's diet or administering supplements.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full Spectrum CBD twice a day. Nick and Courtney typically go by the rule of 1mg per pound with their pets.
1mg per pound, split into two daily doses. It can help with allergic reactions and skin reactions and is an anti-histamine which can help calm the inflammatory reaction of the body.
Turkey Tail Mushrooms
Turkey Tail mushrooms have been shown to offer favorable results with women suffering from chemo treatments for breast cancer.
A well-known liver tonic & powerful antioxidant that can help support the body’s purification system for humans and pets alike. It helps with liver and kidney damage, and also helps repair organ damage.
Incorporating fish oil can offer big benefits for your pet. Fish Oil offers omega-6, omega-3, and polyunsaturated fats. Omega-6's decrease inflammation, cell growth, and blood clotting. Omega-3's balance Omega-6's and can be an anti-inflammatory agent especially with regard to allergies & arthritis. The 3’s and fats can improve skin, coat, and joint health and improve cognitive function.
Not the same as human probiotics! Dogs and humans have different types of gut bacteria, and while some of them are the same, our furry friends have a number of strains that we don’t have. We both share Lactobacillus & Bifidobacterium, but two additional healthy gut bacteria to support in your dog are Bacillus coagulans & Enterococcus faecium. A healthy gut helps support better digestion and a healthier immune system!
Golden Paste (Turmeric & Coconut oil)
Turmeric is one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories and a great antioxidant. The coconut oil offers healthy fats for the body. The paste can be given in food or applied topically to troublesome areas.
Glucosamine / Chondroitin Complex
These two supplements make up the building blocks for cartilage in the body. They have been regularly used for arthritis support and to encourage further cartilage production.
CoQ10 - Coenzyme Q10
It has been shown to improve symptoms related to congestive heart failure, support nervous system dysfunction, and may help with energy production.
We recommend talking to your vet before making any changes to your pet’s health regiment. When you think about your health or your pet's health, think about supporting the major systems of the body like circulatory, nervous, and digestive. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.
