What is pet wine made of?
Pets can not drink alcohol. So obviously these pet beverages are not made from the same ingredients that humans drink. Cat wine is usually made of catnip and water. Catnip
is a herb that is part of the mint family. The effects of catnip are said to be calming for cats. Dogs don’t eat catnip so their beverage is made from ingredients such as peppermint and chamomile.
Where do you get your pet wines from?
The pet wine market is growing. With suppliers popping up in America and more and more in Australia. Mostly, these products are sold online but you may find a pet store supplier as well. Search online to see the closest to you. Pet beverages don’t stop at wine either. If beer if more your dog’s preference – there are plenty of options there too!
Is pet wine safe?
Pet wine (and similar products) are really just a bit of fun. Like everything, they should be given in moderation. If you’re unsure if these products are suitable for your pet, always consult your vet. These really should be given as a small and occasional treat. No matter what, actual alcohol should never be given to animals as it can cause serious damage – and can even be lethal to some animals.
Keen to give cat or dog wine a go? Have a look around at the variety of products. You always give your pet a small sample and see how they like it. If they do, why not sit back and have a little pawty together!
