DENVER — Charlotte’s Web on Oct. 27 introduced a new full-spectrum hemp extract treat targeting dogs with skin and allergy concerns. The company’s Skin Health & Allergy Support Chews are formulated to support sensitive skin and seasonal allergies.

“As we continue to learn more about the science of allergies in our dogs, we are finding it often requires a multimodal approach – combining traditional and alternative therapies for the best outcome,” said Kwane Stewart, DVM, a veterinary media personality and web brand ambassador for Charlotte’s Web.

The functional treats are grain- and GMO-free and formulated with a proprietary full-spectrum hemp extract and other natural botanical ingredients, including biotin, nettle leaf, burdock root and marshmallow root. According to the company, this combination offers skin and coat health benefits as well as detoxification effects in dogs.

“A full spectrum hemp extract can support a dogs’ skin health as they go through allergy season,” noted Jen Palmer, ND, web director of education at Charlotte’s Web. “CBD has been determined to be safe for canines based on research conducted at Colorado State University.”
