CBD Oil for Dogs

You may have heard about CBD oil for dogs recently. With the legalization of marijuana in many states, there is a lot of new information floating around. You may be wondering what it is and how it can be, or should be used, for your dog. While we certainly recommend that you speak with your veterinarian before using any new medication on your pet, this information may help you have a better understanding of what all the recent conversation is about. In addition, it may help you decide if CBD oil is right for you and your pet.

Is CBD oil right for you and your dog?

What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil for dogs? What is it?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis. Cannabis is also known as marijuana. While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant. The hemp plant is a cousin of the marijuana plant. It is worth noting that most CBD oils do not contain THC. THC is the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties.

Uses of CBD Oil for Dogs

Now that you know what it is, let’s find out how it can be used for dogs.

There are several medicinal properties in CBD oil. According to Dr. Klein, the AKC’s Chief Veterinary Officer, CBD has several uses for dogs. It can be used for its anti-inflammatory properties, cardiac benefits, anti-nausea effects, appetite stimulation, anti-anxiety impact, and for possible anti-cancer benefits. To date, there is no conclusive data on its anti-cancer benefits.

While there is no conclusive study on the use of CBD oil and dogs, owners have reported that it appears to help with the items above such as treating pain and controlling seizures in their animals.

What Are the Side Effects of CBD Oil for Dogs?

Because formal studies have not yet been completed, there is no definitive answer. However, CBD oil is presumed to have the same type of side effects in dogs as it does in humans. These include dry mouth, lowered blood pressure, and drowsiness.

What is a Normal Dose of CBD Oil for Dogs?

The risks and safety factors of CBD oil for dogs are yet to be fully researched. As such, the FDA has not published a dosing chart. This means that it is unclear what dose would be toxic. As with any new medication, please first seek the advice of your veterinarian. If you vet approves the use of CBD for your dog, he may also suggest starting with a very small dose. Then, closely monitor the effects.

CBD Oil Products

If your veterinarian and you decide to start CBD oil for your pup, there are things to look for when purchasing the oil. For instance, you’ll want to be sure that it is high-quality CBD oil to ensure that it will have the desired affects. You’ll also want to consider the following:

  • Look for organic so that it has less chance of containing pesticides, fungicides, or solvents.
  • You know the saying ‘You get what you pay for’. Do not purchase the cheapest option as it will most likely have the ingredients noted above. The higher quality CBD oil generally comes with a higher price.
  • Know what you’re purchasing. Each manufacturer of CBD oil should provide the amount of CBD in the product and whether it includes THC. It is best to purchase a brand without THC.
  • Purchase in liquid form. This allows you to easily adjust your dog’s dosages drop by drop.

CBD for Pets: The What, Why and How’s You Need to Know

CBD oil is the probably the biggest current trend in pet supplements and we receive questions daily about its use. Just to clear the air and to protect our patients from the many shoddy or potentially dangerous products out there, here are some points to consider when choosing a CBD product…for a human or a dog!

Cannabinoid is a broad term covering compounds found in cannabis (marijuana) and hemp. Not all cannabinoids are the same and they aren’t all suitable for your pets. Some of the better-known cannabinoids are THC and CBD, however there are over 140 different cannabinoids present in hemp plants.

  • THC is best known for psychoactive properties and is toxic to pets.
  • CBD and CBDa are the cannabinoids found to be therapeutic.

Currently the most widely studied and supported use for CBD oil in dogs is to improve joint function usually associated with arthritis. Most owners will see an improvement within two weeks if their pet is responsive to CBD oil. While more studies need to be conducted, there is also anecdotal support to use it to treat seizures and anxiety.

    1. The manufacturer or distributor should be able to provide you with a purity certificate for EACH batch they produce.
      • A purity certificate is completed by an independent third party.
      • It will show the concentration of CBD.
      • It will also prove that the product does not have dangerous heavy metals, pesticides, and mycotoxins that can be found in plants.
    2. The certificate should show THC levels under 0.3%
    3. The company should have completed their own studies on their own product showing efficacy and safety!
    4. The product should provide clear dosing recommendations based on the size of your pet.
    5. AND…
    6. Make sure you check in with your vet if your dog is on other medications. For example – pets on gabapentin will need to reduce their dose to avoid excessive sedation!

    If you are considering CBD for your pet, we offer a line of CBD oil and treats at the clinic that we are confident recommending based on this criteria. We have seen positive results for many of our patients who have given it a try so please contact us if you are interested.
