Chewy pet treats designed to ensure dogs and cats can receive veterinarian recommended doses of cannabinoid (CBD) have been recognized for their innovation.

Companion CBD’s proprietary Companion Soft Chews were named “Chewable Treat Product of the Year” by the Independent Innovation Awards. The award program, distributed by an organization of the same name, honors innovative companies, services and products from various industries, including animal care.

Companion CBD, owned and operated by veterinarians, makes hemp and CBD-based products for pets per veterinary dosage guidelines.

“The world of CBD has expanded rapidly in recent years,” said Brad Malin, the company’s CEO. “We are developing the next generation of CBD products for pet owners and believe that the future of our industry depends on providing accurate and honest information about the value of CBD-based products.”
