Herbs for Pets

Hemp seed meal or cake was one of the world’s principle animal feeds until this century. It has the advantage of providing a complete diet for a lesser feed cost and allows animals a maximum weight gain without any need for artificial growth steroids. The good fat in hemp seed oil is unique since it is approximately 80% polyunsaturated or “good” fat – the highest of any vegetable oil. These fatty acids can’t be produced by the body and therefore must be obtained from our diets. 

Hemp ingredients give unique added value to Hemp Love pet treats. Hemp is natural, free from all allergens including soya, lactose and wheat. Hemp ingredients are easily digested and they are an excellent source of Oil, Protein and Dietary Fiber and highly relevant to natural pet foods and natural pet treats. Key to the content of all hemp ingredients is the uniquely healthy oil.

 

Benefits of Hemp Seeds for Canine Health (sub button)

Canine health benefits from hemp protein include:

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Supports a healthy weight
  • Easily digested
  • Increases energy
  • Improves condition of skin and fur

 

Hemp Love Dog Treats
Most dog treats are like “junk food” for humans - without all the nutrients and only made to taste good. Hemp Love dog treats not only taste great but they contain hemp seed oil which naturally has the perfect Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio ( 3:1 ) of fatty acids which your dog needs. The oil contained in hemp seeds moisturizes a dog’s skin and fur correctly because it is herbal and has virtually no side effects like fish oil.  Hemp seed oil prevents dog’s skin disorders such as dry nose, dog acne, dog eczema, dog rash and dog dandruff. 

Hemp seed oil can enhance blood circulation and stimulate a dog’s cognitive thinking. Plus, it can thicken its fur texture and lessen shedding.

Again, because hemp oil is extracted from the “industrial hemp” plant there are no psychoactive reactors.  Furthermore, Hemp Love sources all hemp products exclusively from Canada.  This is because Canadian hemp products must meet tough standards. They are “identity preserved” in lots equivalent to “certified organic.” Every lot can be traced to its source. Health Canada only allows hemp to be grown with a government issued permit and requires mandatory lab testing to ensure that all hemp grown there contains 0.00% THC.

Hemp for Pets

They offer genuine category extension and point of difference.

Hemp is natural, free from all allergens including soya, lactose and wheat. Hemp ingredients are an excellent source of Oil, Protein and Dietary Fibre and highly relevant to natural pet foods and natural pet treats. Key to the content of all hemp ingredients is the uniquely healthy oil.

 

Benefits of Feeding Oils to Pets

Dietary fats are required both as a source of energy and as a source of the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, which are not synthesised by the body. Together, Omega 3 and Omega 6 play a crucial role in pet health.

Deficiencies in Omega 3 and Omega 6 can lead to:

  • Reduced Growth
  • Dermatitis
  • Infertility
  • Compromised Immunity
  • Poor Joint Health
  • Increased risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Correct levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 lead to:

  • Healthy Skin
  • Healthy Coat
  • Healthy Joints
  • Reduction of total HDL cholesterol
  • Good Fertility
  • Healthy Immune System
  • Good Growth and Development

Typical recommended inclusion rate for oil in pet diets is 2ml per 6g of body weight per day.

 

Significance of Composition of Oils

The balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6 in the diet is important. There is a complex interaction between these Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) including a competition for enzymes controlling the metabolic pathways between these two groups of fats.

Too much of one fatty acid can stop the formation of the other fatty acid. Too much Omega 6 inhibits the formation of Omega 3. For example, Diets including soya oil, sunflower oil or olive oil can lead to too much Omega 6.

Too much Omega 6 leads to:

  • Negative Cardiovascular effects
  • Inflammatory effects

Correct levels of Omega 3 lead to:

  • Beneficial Cardiovascular effects
  • Anti-inflamatory effects
  • Beneficial Neurological effects
  • Beneficial Reproductive effects

 

 

 

Benefits of Hemp Oil in Pet Foods

Hempseed oil is cold pressed from seed at temperatures below 38ºC and unlike commonly used oils in pet nutrition is not chemically refined or treated in any way. It has none of the odours or toxins and dioxins often occurring in fish oils. And hemp provides a perfect balance of Essential Fatty Acids naturally – with none of the compromises of synthesised oils.

Compared to other oils, hemp oil contains:

  • The highest level of polyunsaturated fats.
  • One of the Lowest levels of Saturated fats
  • Optimal ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 at 3:
  • A rich source of Omega 3 and Omega 6
  • High amounts of γ-linolenic acid and stearidonic acid, the biologic metabolites of LA and ALA, respectively, which none of the other commonly utilised vegetable oils contain. Therefore, due to metabolic competition between the two EFAs for access to the ∆-6 desaturase to convert LA and ALA to γ-linolenic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA), respectively, the presence of both GLA and SDA in hempseed oil allows this enzymatic step with ∆-6-desaturase to be efficiently by- passed.

Hemp Oil provides added value in Natural Pet Foods because it is:

  • Highly palatable
  • Very efficient source of dietary energy
  • Contains unique forms of Omega 3 & Omega 6 in the most efficient form to metabolise of any plant oil
  • Free from the smell and toxins of fish oils
  • Free from all allergens
  • Free from GMO
  • Delivers correct ration of Omega 3 and Omega 6 without causing imbalance
  • Helps reduce HDL Cholesterol and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Completely traceable
