My Story, My Passion
Get to know me and my company, Zoophilist, a brand focused around providing animals with the purest CBD oils in South Africa.
My name is Bernadene Everitt, the creator of the Zoophilist brand and I am an absolutely devoted, loyal and passionate animal lover.
Animals have always been a big part of my life having grown up in a family setting where the unconditional love of all animals was not just taught but practised and lived. When my first dog, Maya (a French poodle), entered my life as a 6-year-old girl, little did I know that I would be embarking on a most remarkable life journey filled with treasured lessons and unforgettable memories that would eventually inspire me to create the Zoophilist brand of animal-related health products.
As many of you would know, our pets form an integral part of family life and bring lots of joy and happiness to us and our loved ones. As much as we try and give them the quality of life that they deserve whether it be through a well-balanced diet and regular exercise, life’s frantic pace affects our pets almost as much as it does us. The reality is that they are just as likely to suffer from bouts of anxiety, depression and mobility issues in old age as we are.
Having gone through this pet ownership life cycle many times with countless visits to the veterinary hospital from something as benign as a dog anxious about its visit to the groomer to arthritis in old age and a rescued poodle with parvovirus, I’ve explored and experimented with completely natural options like CBD (cannabinoid) oil as a dietary supplement over many years.
Whilst I found that clinical studies about the effects of CBD on animals or the effectiveness thereof in the treatment of pet anxiety, joint pain, depression and seizures to be few and far between, anecdotally, I like many pet owners around the world have experienced really positive results using CBD based health products.
