All pet owners love their pets – that’s a no-brainer. And just like us humans, our beloved fur-babies can suffer from all sorts of health problems from time to time. In the last few years, more and more pet owners, with guidance from their local veterinarians, have been looking to more natural alternative forms of medicine and therapy. That’s where CBD comes in. Luckily, buying CBD oil for dogs in Canada is now legal, and is both safe and effective for treating many different disorders and ailments.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol and is one of at least 113 naturally occurring chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, that are found in the cannabis plant. It’s often extracted and then mixed together with a carrier oil, such hemp seed oil or coconut oil to create an ingestible CBD oil. CBD can be consumed in a variety of different ways – it can be inhaled, ingested, absorbed sublingually under the tongue or even applied topically to the skin. It comes in sprays, drops, oils, concentrates and even pet treats, making it easier and easier for you to introduce the wonderful properties of CBD into your pets daily health routine. Drops can easily be added into food, water or directly into your pup’s mouth if they’ll let you! Dried CBD Infused pet treats are another great way to introduce CBD to your pet, and are perfect for the car for those dog’s that get anxious or nervous when going on drives. Most of the CBD products available for pets are easy to dose, either coming in a bottle with an eye dropper, or in treat form.
How Can CBD Oil Help My Dog?
More and more vets are beginning to recommend CBD oil for dogs, even as veterinary scientific research into CBD as a treatment for pets is rather new. Studies in humans, however, show that cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory effects and can help with anxiety, aggression, pain, seizures, muscle spasms, neurological disorders, and a myriad of other health issues. Another great benefit of CBD is that there are basically no negative side effects, so even if CBD doesn’t have the desired effect on your pet, there are no negative effects from taking CBD, as with many of the pharmaceutical drugs on the market today.
CBD Oil for dogs or CBD infused Dog Treats can ease many conditions that your pup may suffer from either occasionally or chronically, including but not limited to:
- Anxiety and stress
- Moderate to severe pain
- Chronic inflammation
- Joint pain
- Digestion problems
Just as an example, a study done by Colorado State University found that 89% of dogs that took CBD saw a reduction in the frequency of seizures, compared to none those that took a placebo. If this is what CBD can do for my dog, count me in!
How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog?
Many vets already recommend CBD oil for dogs. Unfortunately, there just aren’t any veterinarian regulated dosage levels yet, due to scientific studies still being in their infancy.
To work out the appropriate dose for your pet on your own, start with this formula:
0.25mg x 1 pound of pet.
It is very important that you always read the label of any CBD product you purchase. All good quality CBD products will clearly state on the label how much CBD oil is in every drop, capsule or treat. Another thing to look for is results from a third party lab test that has been done on the product. This is really the only way to ensure that you are getting a good quality, pure CBD oil and all reputable CBD suppliers should provide you with these results if you ask.
Remember to closely monitor how your pet reacts to the dose (it can take up to an hour to kick in,) so you know whether it needs to be adjusted to manage their pain or improve their anxiety. We recommend staying a one dose for about a week, taking that time to allow the CBD to work it’s way into your pets system, as well as giving you the time you need to notice any changes or effects the oil is having on your furry pal. After this week, increase the dose, always waiting about a week before increasing again. In this way, you will be able to pinpoint that magic dose that works for your pet. This may take some experimentation over the course of a couple of weeks or so, but the results are well worth it!
