Hemp protein powder comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant. It is derived from the seeds. Hemp contains no THC or CBD (the psychotropic elements) and therefore cannot get your pet ‘high’
Hemp protein powder is a plant based protein which is a human and animal safe supplement. It is high in fibre and therefore it is important to begin slowly. If a food or supplement supports good joint health, it does not mean consuming large quantities will have more benefit!
Any food must be introduced gently to a diet especially for old and sick dogs or cats.
It is not recommended to heat the powder. It is best used as a food topper or mixed into your pets cereal or ready cooked food.
This is a plant based protein which is suitable for vegetarian households. Commercial pet foods have long term effects on your pets health and digestive system. If you feed an exclusively “kibble diet” then this is a protein you should consider including in your pets diet.
