CBD oil is a versatile product, allowing pet owners to find the best way of using CBD for their pup’s particular needs.
While some dogs show easily noticeable improvements after taking CBD, others may have more subtle responses. Here are some signs that your dog’s CBD is taking effect:
CBD Pet Treats – Vitality
1. Increased mobility: One of the most common things that owners of dogs taking CBD observe are improvements in their pet’s ability to stand, sit, and walk around. Dogs with arthritis or hip dysplasia who respond to CBD often stop licking or biting at their hinds, and may rediscover their love of walks.
Orally: If your dog is the type to get suspicious of tinctures and pills, the simplest way to give them CBD is by dropping their dose into their food. Adding CBD oil to a dog’s dinner helps them to digest the maximum amount of CBD.
CBD Pet Treats – Longevity
The amount of CBD oil you give your dog should depend upon their needs. Dogs taking CBD for joint diseases or other chronic inflammatory conditions should respond well to a moderate dose given on a daily basis. CBD to treat anxiety conditions, on the other hand, is usually best given as a low daily dose.
Studies and anecdotal evidence show that CBD is well tolerated by dogs, with only minor side effects occasionally reported. (These include nausea, dizziness, and diarrhea). Even at high dosages, no overdoses or other serious incidents are known to have occurred.
A large-scale survey of US veterinarians revealed strong support for the use of CBD products in animals, with over 70% of veterinarians reporting CBD as having been helpful for dogs with pain, anxiety, epilepsy and phobias (such as fear of storms or fireworks).
CBD is proving to be a natural, accessible alternative to veterinary pharmaceuticals for several common ailments. After years of positive results, veterinary research is now turning to CBD to get a closer look.
