SAN DIEGO, June 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Honest Kitchen today announced the launch two new herbal teas for pets to complement its existing Lithe Tea™, and expand the company's supplement offerings – Easy Peesy Tea™, for urinary tract health, and Quiet Tea™, to promote calmness.

Easy Peesy Tea™ contains human-grade Horsetail, Cleavers, Couch grass, Nettle and Marshmallow root. It's intended to help support normal healthy functioning of the urinary tract, including bladder control and the alleviation of urinary irritation. It's suitable for both dogs and cats.

Quiet Tea™ is made from human-grade Oatstraw, Chamomile, Passionflower, Skullcap and Valerian root. It's designed to help promote calmness and alleviate anxiety, tension and excitability during stressful or over-stimulating situations for both dogs and cats. It's particularly suited to combat separation anxiety, and anxiousness when traveling or during thunderstorms.

The new teas join Lithe Tea™, the country's first ever herbal tea for pets, which is intended to support joint health and mobility in dogs.

"Our herbal teas can be prepared similarly to loose-leaf tea. Pet owners measure the recommended quantity of herbs, steep in hot water for five to ten minutes and strain if desired. The tea can be served alone, added to our dehydrated whole foods, or mixed with Ice Pups™ liquid treat, twice daily," stated Laurette Lamontagne, the company's Director of Operations and resident herbalist. "Steeping these herbs in hot water really helps to release the medicinal properties," she continued.

In addition, the company is re-launching its popular line of three existing nutritional herbal supplements in brand new, beautifully designed packaging. The eco-friendly, recyclable steel canisters feature a custom, hand-drawn botanical illustration which showcases the herbs and whole foods used in the supplement.

The teas and supplements will be available for purchase through The Honest Kitchen's online store July 7, 2011, and in more than two thousand pet specialty stores nationwide, as well as in some holistic vet offices, and select Whole Foods stores in late July.
