BUDDYPET expand their hemp range with special products for seniors

BUDDYPET is a private company, established in 2017 to promote the healing power of the hemp plant, challenging the orthodox principles of big pharma and Western medicine.

The pet care range was originally launched under the CannaCo trademark and rebranded in 2019 to BUDDYPET.

The vision of the team behind 
BUDDYPET is to bring hemp’s healing benefits to every four-legged, winged or scaled best friend. From the organic seeds sewn in Tasmanian soil, to the meticulous formulation of each product in the BUDDYPET range, every step is designed to help pet parents to protect and nurture their fur babies with absolute confidence.

As Alexandra Poznyak, Head of Sales & Marketing at BUDDYPET explains “All BUDDYPET hemp seed oil products are 100% Australian grown. Furthermore, all our hemp is grown organically, and we can confirm that all our products are 100% free of chemicals and pesticides throughout the growing, cultivating and processing stages.”

For the past 5 years, Australian fur families enjoyed BUDDYPET Marley's 100% raw, cold-pressed hemp seed oil to help manage symptoms of pet anxiety and atopic dermatitis, support immunity and coat health as well as a range of specialist grooming products for sensitive skin, dry, itchy skin and dandruff.

Hemp seeds are a good source of essential nutrients such as protein, fatty acids, fibre, vitamins and minerals, without an excess of calories, starches and sugars. As such, hemp seed oil is an excellent dietary supplement to support and improve health.

Hemp seed oil works on the Endocannabinoid system, a network of thousands of receptors all over the body, including the brain and central nervous system. It regulates various functions such as sleep, mood and pain. All animals have highly developed endocannabinoid systems, so managing stress, anxiety and pain with hempseed oil has become increasingly popular with pet owners.

In 2021, Dr. Ailsa Rutherford joined the team as Head of Animal Health to personally oversee the development of all BUDDYPET products to ensure the optimal efficacy and safety of each one. Dr. Ailsa is a senior practicing veterinarian and a member of the Australia and New Zealand College of Veterinary Surgeons in Emergency and Critical Care Chapter and Veterinary Practitioners Board of NSW.

Like many Vets, Dr Ailsa knew what she wanted to be from a very young age. Growing up in Yorkshire in the UK, she volunteered at a local vet clinic from the age of 13. After graduating from the Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University, Dr. Ailsa forged her career in London before moving to Australia in 2011.

Dr. Ailsa and her husband Michael care for a fur family of five. Three adorable dogs and two mischievous cats who each came to them as rescue animals.

Today, Dr. Ailsa has fortified her place at the forefront of veterinary medicine. She is a believer in integrative medicine for pets and has a special interest in ultrasonography, emergency medicine, and caring for senior pets.

It was Dr. Ailsa’s interest in natural care for senior pets that has driven the expansion of BUDDYPET range with two new 100% natural products for seniors: BUDDYPET Milly and BUDDYPET Luna.

BUDDYPET Milly is delicious blend of hemp seed oil and turmeric to support senior dogs in their golden years. 

As dogs age, they tend to become less mobile due to arthritis, digestive issues, weight gain, deteriorating immune system, heart and lung function. 

Ageing pets are fragile and need extra support to help them find their zest for life. The amazing marriage of hemp seed oil and turmeric makes it a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant supplement that can help improve mobility, support immune system, recovery and general wellbeing. 

It’s a best-in-show joint supplement for senior dogs!

BUDDYPET Luna is a blend of fish oil and hemp seed oil. 

Nutrient rich, Luna is packed with anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, iron, vitamin E and B vitamins group, providing the perfect daily nutritional supplement. 

But Luna's greatest power is the high content of two of the most important compounds in Omega-3: DHA and EPA. DHA has benefits for animals of all ages, from kittens to senior cats. EPA’s anti-inflammatory effects are highly beneficial to older cats, especially those with osteoarthritis and chronic kidney disease.

And the proof is in the pudding as shown by these testimonials:

Meagan O’Dell: “Proven results with my 2 year old Amstaff who had had been suffering some ongoing stiffness due to an injury. One bottle of down and onto my second and she’s no longer limping, and her overall health has improved. Would highly recommend Marley.”

Tripaw: “I have a rescue dog who suffers from separation anxiety. Since she's been on the Marley hemp oil, she has completely relaxed, and she actually loves the taste! It's the first thing she goes for in her bowl, even before her kibble. Highly recommend.”

M: “My dogs go crazy for the Marley hemp oil! What can I say, my dogs love this hemp oil! They are truly nuts for it! It has been amazing for their joints. One of my senior dogs was starting to get arthritis and was beginning to hobble, but now she moves with ease. It also keeps their fur coats in great health.”
