BEST FRIENDS PET HOTELS ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE NUTRITION PARTNERSHIP WITH FREELY

Freely will be the Exclusive Nutrition Partner for both dogs and cats staying and playing at all 31 Best Friends Pet Hotel centers nationwide.

As cooler weather descends and holiday preparations are underway, pet parents are starting to think about holiday plans, including pet boarding accommodations and day care arrangements. For busy families, Best Friends Pet Hotels provides peace of mind with a new exclusive partnership offering Freely limited ingredient recipes as the new in-house food starting October 1st.

According to Darryl Sampson, Best Friends Pet Hotel VP/Operations, “We are proud to partner with Freely, a brand that shares our commitment to being a trusted resource for today’s pet parents as well an excellent complement to our quality facilities and luxury pet suites. Freely’s unique natural, limited ingredient foods and personalized, free nutrition services is one more way we’re demonstrating our dedication to providing exceptional care for our happy canine and feline guests, and peace of mind for pet parents.”

Through this partnership with Freely, Best Friends Pet Hotels nationwide will be making the switch exclusively to Freely recipes. Dogs staying and playing with Best Friends Pet Hotels will enjoy Whole Grain Lamb kibble or a Whole Grain Turkey Puppy kibble while cats boarding with Best Friends will enjoy Grain-Free with Rabbit kibble. Select wet recipes will also be available. Kibble samples are available for free at local Best Friends Pet Hotels while supplies last.

“High quality food and thoughtfully balanced nutrition are important to the overall health of every pet,” said Freely Veterinarian, Dr. Sara Gilbert. “Freely provides peace of mind for pet parents not only by delivering complete and balanced nutrition in every bowl but as a great resource to coach and advise them and the staff at Best Friends. When a pet’s home-away-from-home care is equally committed to rigorous play and purposely chosen foods, it shows their dedication to the families they serve.”

Best Friends will also be selling Freely’s Beneficial Broths (for dogs, Tranquility Blend, Gut Health Blend, Skin & Coat Blend, and Tranquility Blend; for cats, Tranquility Blend) in the lobby and available for curbside pickup. Customers of Best Friends will also enjoy an exclusive discount code for online purchases at freelypet.com.

Freely was created to simplify pet food for pet parents who are largely overwhelmed and confused by today’s market. They offer a unique service and product model that makes it easier for pet parents to select and buy their pet’s food. Freely puts small animal nutrition experts within easy reach through the Freely Nutrition Center and offers an innovative assortment of limited ingredient recipes perfect for nourishing pets.

BEST FRIENDS PET HOTELS OFFERS HONEST PAWS CBD PET PRODUCTS JUST IN TIME FOR FOURTH OF JULY FIREWORKS RELIEF

As the Fourth of July holiday preparations are underway, there are sure to be barbecues and family fun and fireworks. For family pets, the fireworks experience offers giant booms, flashes of light and strange smells, and the experience can seem like an assault to a dog’s senses and be extremely anxiety-provoking. Unless your dog is acclimated to loud noises, such as hunting rifles, most family pets need help staying calm when fireworks are in the works and will be grateful to their pet owner for finding a solution to help them through the booms and bangs of Independence Day.

According to Darryl Sampson, Best Friends Pet Hotel VP/Operations, “As a pet care provider, we know that July 4th can be a stressful evening for anxious pets. We are proud to offer in select locations a wonderful array of Honest Paws CBD Pet Care Products to help relieve any stress or anxiety to our beloved dogs and cats while we enjoy our national holiday.”

More than 63 percent of U.S. households have one or more pets, and unfortunately, animal control officers nationwide report a 30 percent increase in lost pets each year between July 4th and July 6th due to frantic runaway pets.

Through a partnership with Honest Paws CBD Pet Products, select Best Friends Pet Hotels nationwide will be making available their natural dog products for sale for pet parents. CBD is a beneficial cannabinoid, found in the hemp plant. Like humans, it works with the endocannabinoid system to maintain homeostasis or a balanced state in your body.

Select Best Friends locations* will be selling Honest Paws CBD Bites, Soft Chews and CBD Oil for all dog sizes and in different formulas for calmness, mobility, relief, and general wellness. Sourced from one farm in Colorado, CBD Bites active ingredients include organic full-spectrum hemp containing naturally occurring CBD and with no GMOs, corn or soy. Soft Chews carried at Best Friends are formulated for Calm or for Mobility for joint stiffness.

The Honest Paws CBD oil tinctures are offered in 30-day supply using naturally occurring CBD, and formulated for different size dogs. The oil is free of gluten, GMOs, Xylitol and soy and is formulated either as Calm Oil (with chamomile) to maintain calmness and behavioral problem management, or as Wellness Oil recommended for assisting the immune system, maintain calmness and support cognitive health.

Honest Paws is also offering a delicious CBD Peanut Butter jar, perfect for peanut butter-loving canines who also need a gluten and dairy-free human grade product free of GMOs, Xylitol and Soy, and a Coconut Oil jar and CBD balm for all dog and cat sizes.

CBD pet products can also help support nervousness and anxious behavior, joint care and mobility, travel stress, inconsistent sleep, seasonal allergies, and even cracked paws.

For more information, visit the Honest Paws Hub on the Best Friends’ site.

UPDATE: As of November 2020, all 31 Best Friends locations sell Honest Paws CBD products.
