Treatibles, an industry leader in hemp sourced phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) chews, oils and gel caps for pets, has partnered with Villalobos Rescue Center (you may recognize the rescue from an animal focused network’s hit show about rehabilitating pit bulls and people) to introduce Tater’s Sweet Potato Tots by Treatibles, a new grain free chew that will benefit the New Orleans-based Rescue. One dollar from each bag sold will be donated to help cover veterinary expenses at Villalobos Rescue Center.
The official launch will take place at SuperZoo during a press conference scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 26, at booth #1107. The event will feature Mariah Harmony and Tater Tot from the hit show and Villalobos Rescue Center, and Treatibles CEO and founder Julianna Carella.
How Tater’s Sweet Potato Tots by Treatibles Was Born
Tater’s story began in 2010 when a good samaritan found the handsome fellow running the streets of Los Angeles. He was taken to Villalobos, which at the time was located in L.A. It was love at first sight for Harmony, one of the family members running the rescue. She adopted him immediately. She knew he had physical and mental pain, which is believed to be a result of unethical breeding, and she was determined to help ease both. Managing his pain had been a continual challenge. That was when Harmony discovered Treatibles. The phytocannabinoid rich chews had an almost immediate effect on his physical and mental health.
“Treatibles changed Tater’s life for the better,” Harmony said. “Physically, he can now enjoy his workday with much less pain. And his obsessive behavior has subsided tremendously. He even sleeps peacefully through the night.”
When Harmony shared Tater’s story with Carella, she was inspired to do something to help. Carella proposed creating a chew in Tater’s honor—one that could benefit the dogs of the rescue.
Tater’s Sweet Potato Tots by Treatibles is expected to be available in stores nationwide in early August 2017. The promotion is open-ended.
In addition to Tater’s Sweet Potato Tots, Treatibles will be introducing the company’s full line of grain free chews with flavors including Blueberry, Pumpkin and Turkey.
Treatibles products all contain phytocannabinoid rich oil extracted from whole plant medicinal grade hemp grown in the USA. In addition to cannabidiol, one of the most therapeutic compounds, several other phytocannabinoids as well as terpenes are included creating what is known as the entourage effect, providing a full spectrum of benefits for pets. Treatibles products are virtually free of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis.
Phytocannabinoids are very effective in bringing balance to pets suffering from a myriad of conditions including anxiety, separation anxiety, arthritis, inflammation and pain/pain amelioration, inappetence, mobility issues, cancer, epilepsy, end of life comfort, and more.
“We go above and beyond to ensure the efficacy and safety of all of our products,” Carella said. “We third party lab test at every stage, from the raw materials to the finished product. As far as we know, we are the only company producing phytocannabinoid products for pets that can quantify the exact milligrams of cannabidiol in every chew, dropper bottle and gel cap. In addition, we test to ensure our products are free of bio-contaminants and heavy metals.”
