CBD for Pets

cbd for dogs

People often ask if CBD is bad for pets. It's a reasonable question since both CBD and THC chemicals are found in the Cannabis sativa plant, commonly known as marijuana. THC is the problematic one that produces a “high.” However, CBD does not have that effect, and evidence suggests that there are many healthful benefits for both people and pets. Some cannabis plants naturally contain less than 0.3% THC and are known as hemp plants. Or the excess THC can be removed from products during processing.

Either way, CBD products are generally legal (but check your state laws) and can be ordered online.

CBD For Dogs

A dog's nervous system is very similar to a human's. There are receptors that communicate with the brain. Pain and fear can be especially troublesome for us and our pets. When CBD attaches to those receptors, the brain receives a different message.

CBD, formulated for pets, can relieve pain, calm anxiety, help with the fear of storms, and even improve digestion and some skin problems. There are studies that show improvement in several health conditions when CBD is used. Do your research on the conditions that your pet is facing and talk to your vet if you have concerns about the safety of the products.

CBD Oil For Dogs

There are several forms of CBD made especially for dogs. CBD oil is an easy way to administer a proper dosage to your pet. It comes in strengths appropriate for dogs of different sizes and in flavors that dogs love! The correct amount of drops can be added to food or applied directly into the dog's mouth. This method will likely be the best for those times when you want a fast-working solution.

CBD Dog Treats For Stress and Anxiety

Sometimes dogs resist taking their medicine. Dog treats containing CBD can be an easy way to help your dog relax when you have to leave the house. Separation anxiety is common, especially with rescue dogs. And who doesn't like to give their dog a treat? Your dog might even start to look forward to your leaving for work!

CBD Dog Treats For Pet Joint Health and Mobility

Dog treats with CBD and added superfoods like turmeric and blueberries can improve joint health and decrease pain. Older dogs and certain breeds are more susceptible to joint problems and arthritis. Controlling the pain can help your pet live a longer and healthier life.

For joint issues, you will probably want to make a CBD product a regular part of your pet's routine.

CBD For Cats

CBD products made just for cats can help make your favorite cat's life less stressful and more comfortable. It's important not to use products made for dogs because cats have special needs. While their nervous systems are similar, the dosage for a dog could harm your cat.

Start with the smallest dose recommended. You can give more if needed.

This version of the CBD oil is cat-safe and is made to be added to your pet's food or given orally.

How To Give CBD Products To Your Pet

CBD pet products are specially formulated to make it easy to give your pet the proper dosage. You can be sure of a safe experience if you use the right product from a reliable source. One tip is to look for companies that use an independent lab to test their products. Another is to pay attention to customer ratings. While every product cannot be guaranteed to work on your pet, a history of happy customers can be a sign that the company is a good one.

While treats are a great way to give your pet CBD, sometimes it makes sense to give an oral dosage directly into the pet's mouth. When a storm is on the way, it will be beneficial to pre-treat your pet. Since the CBD oil is measured in drops, you can squeeze it into the pet's mouth or let them lick it off a spoon or plate.

It is important to make sure that the strength of the oil is appropriate for your pet. Products for dogs come in formulations for small, medium, large, and very large breeds. Read the label for the correct number of drops for your pet's weight. Use only products made for cats on your feline friends.

Generally, it's recommended to start with a small dose the first time. As you see how your pet reacts to CBD, you can adjust the dosage as needed. You can always increase the dose, but it's best to give the smallest dose that is effective.

As with any health-enhancing product, it is possible that some individuals will have an allergic reaction. It's a good idea to keep a close watch on your pet the first time you try a new product. Always stop giving the product if a reaction occurs.

Always consult your veterinarian if your pet has a reaction or if you have any concerns about the safety or use of any product.
