CBD for pets
Before starting your pet on any CBD products, please consult your veterinarian. CBD for pets should be advised by your veterinarian and not initiated without their consent.
If your pet is having issues with anxiety from car or air travel, joint pain or mobility issues, or mood/sleep issues, then cannabidiol (CBD) might be right for your pet. Like humans, pet(s) have a similar endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of receptors that regulate the way your body functions. The growing interest in cannabidiol as a health supplement for humans has also carried over to the pet space. Many pet owners have made claims that CBD has helped with a wide spectrum of benefits from separation anxiety to neuropathic pain. CBD proves to be beneficial in humans as well as in pets.
Is CBD safe for my dog or cat?
Short answer is yes, CBD is safe for your dog or cat. But one important factor to consider is the correct dosage. As long as you give your pet the correct dosage then CBD will be safe for your pet.
CBD dog treats
CBD dog treats are becoming increasingly popular among pet parents. CBD dog treats are used in a variety of cases ranging from joint pain, mobility issues, and separation, noise, and travel anxiety.
The reason why CBD dog treats perform better than CBD oil added to your dog's food is because dogs have a keen sense of smell and they can detect when external liquids have been dripped into their food. That's where CBD dog treats come in. Our dog treats have CBD cooked inside of them. All your dog will taste is the tasty bacon, steak, or jerky. So if your dog is a picky eater, our dog treats will be perfect for them.
CBD oil vs CBD dog treats
First and foremost, both are very good options for your dog. However, if your dog is a picky eater, CBD dog treats are the better options here. Dripping CBD oil into your dog's mouth might prove to be a difficult task. It's much easier to just feed your dog a treat. Can you imagine having to administer the correct dosage to your dog while trying to get your dog to sit still?
