Life & Work with Shalisa Chamberlain

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shalisa Chamberlain.

Hi Shalisa, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Furry Faces Holistic CBD came about through a very personal journey. I’ve worked in the veterinary field most of my life. In 2008, I was brutally kicked by a horse while providing veterinary care. The accident left me with massive physical limitations, debilitating pain, depression, and anxiety. To treat all of my symptoms, doctors placed me on a multitude of medications. All these medications had many side effects. Making it almost impossible to function and stay in good health. My doctors kept giving me more and more medications to combat these side effects. With no plan to help me stop any. I thought to myself, this is insane. I’m a healthy woman in my early 30’s whos on 10-15 different medications. So, I dedicated myself to finding a way out. With the help of my medical background and science-based education. I found a natural plant-based supplement with no know side effects that looked like it could be the answer, call CBD.

But at that time, there was little information or products on the market. So, I treated myself like a research project and was able to figure out the right dosing and the best type and quality CBD. Wow, did it help? I gradually stopped all my medications and returned to a normal healthy active life! During my healing journey, my constant companion was my best friend and furry family member Mojo. He was my rock, my sole comfort, and my encouragement. He laid in bed with me every day as I slowly recovered. He was there for me when I cried, he was next to me when I start walking again. He was my angel and he deserves the world! Unfortunately, during this time, Mojo also started having medical issues. Cancerous growths, skin allergies, stomach problems, and pain. I took him to the vet and they offered him what my doctors had offered me. Surgery and medications. I thought about my healing journey, the medication side effects, and my general declining health on them. It got me thinking that all mammals have an endocannabinoid system. I bet CBD will work for him. Guess what it did! Mojo is 14 cancer-free, his tummy functions fabulously and his vitality defies the years.

Along with an all-natural organic diet, CBD helped re-wite Mojo’s story. Since then, I started Furry Faces Holistic CBD. My mission has been to help pets achieve the best physical and emotional health possible through organic plant-based CBD. Our pets give us so much and Furry Faces Holistic is about giving back and providing the highest quality CBD for your furry family members. Furry Faces products are unparalleled, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, meticulously tested in third-party human laboratories, and easy as pie to slip into your pet’s routine – just place the drops on any of your pet’s favorite treats. Also, no need to worry about buying a different bottle of CBD for your cat, small dog, or larger dog. Furry Faces CBD drops are given by the pound. Any size bottle 300mg, 600mg, 900mg, or 1200mg works for all your furry family members… Furry Faces is about transparency, consistency, and world-class quality. Whether you have a finicky feline or a tender-hearted terrier, Furry Faces CBD products benefit pets at Any Age and Any Stage.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The formation of Furry Faces Holistic CBD has not been a smooth road. Finding the right quality hemp and special laboratories to produce the product all took time and patients. It took me years to find just the right combination for pets. Every portion of my product I meticulously designed. From the special biophotonic bottle, the product is packaged. To the spillproof, uniform drop dosing. It was important to me to make a product where pet parents only need to buy one bottle of CBD for their entire furry family. Pet parents’ expenses can be high and no one should have to choose which pet gets CBD because they have to buy a different bottle for each species and size.

Some of the biggest challenges along the way have been the effort to destigmatize the culture around CBD. Helping people understand that CBD will not get your pet high and also helping people understand that CBD isn’t just for older dogs. CBD has so many great nuetrosudical benefits for developing pets. Pets with seizures, arthritis, anxiety, pain, skin, and stomach issues. Studies are coming out from some of the largest and well known veterinary research hospitals in the country. That CBD is showing great promise in helping our pets. But sadly, the biggest struggle for my business has been the inability to start a conversation with the masses about this amazing all-natural product available for their pets. Most social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook, Google, and TikTok don’t allow the word CBD to be placed on any content. If they catch you, it will be immediately taken down or your account deleted. Nor are products labeled CBD allowed to be on any paid advertising. You aren’t even allowed to have these products in a store attached to any accounts. CBD is a nutritional supplement that is all-natural and comes from plants! Let the word get out and let people decide for themselves.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
What gives me the most pride about Furry Faces Holistic is not only developing a CBD that helps pets physically and emotionally but creating a culture dedicated to a wellness lifestyle for our pets. I don’t just sell CBD, I educate my clients on the best ways CBD can help their pets through daily life, injuries and illness. I help clients find the correct dosages of CBD for their pet’s bodies. I help connect clients with other wellness services like pet acupuncturists, chiropractors, nutritionists, Chinese herbal specialists, dermatologists, holistic veterinarians, and physical therapists with access to the latest high-tech modalities. I put the word out there to veterinarians. If they have any questions or clients with questions. Call me! I am happy to assist. Our pets are only with us for a short time and my mission is to help pet parents create a more holistic lifestyle with CBD. Creating more time and more memories. Which truly makes me feel fulfilled.
