CBD for Pets
If your hairy friend has been suffering from a illness or disease for months or even years, you're likely willing to try anything to help your pet get better. One newer treatment approach you may have heard of is CBD for pets.
Is CBD safe?
Yes. Think about this: the same endocannabinoid system that exists in humans also exists within all mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish.
Given the fact that a endless of serious illnesses are now being attributed to Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD) – a condition that is treatable with CBD – logic dictates that endocannabinoid deficiency may also play a significant role in various pet related disorders & diseases.
What can CBD help with in Pets?
- Skin Issues
- Bacterial Infections
- & much more.
How much CBD should you give your pet?
The bottom line is that more CBD is not always better. In the case of severe issues like seizures, higher doses appear to be most effective. However, with something like anxiety, a low-to-medium dose will likely serve your pet much more effectively.
Here are some general guidelines for giving your pet CBD oil:
First, consult with your vet to ensure that CBD won’t interfere with your pet’s current medications or health conditions.
If all is good, start with 1mg of CBD per every 10 lbs. of an animal’s body weight, once or twice a day.
Generally, it’s good to start small, and gradually increase the amount of CBD every week until you see your desired benefits.
Stay with your pet for several hours after giving them CBD to ensure they are fine.
Should I buy CBD for my Pet?
Follow these 3 rules:
- Talk to your Vet first.
- Once you get the green light, start slow.
- Stay with your pet 3-4 hours after giving them CBD.
CBD is itself non-toxic, and so the most important thing to keep in mind is that “overdosing” on CBD will not result in fatalities.
