Indeed CBD has gained immense popularity within no time. Not only for human use but CBD is an excellent treatment for pets too. The benefits that CBD provides don’t seem less than magic. The majorly known CBD oil can be termed as magical oil as it has everything that a person needs to maintain a healthy body. CBD oil has grown to be a pet wellness trend and almost all pet owners have adopted it. Didn’t you? If you are baffled regarding CBD oil, read this text to be clear.
CBD is a compound that can be processed and derived from the Hemp plant and can be used for medicinal purposes. Within the Farm Bill, it was legalized to use the CBD that is derived from Hemp plants and contains less than 0.03% of THC. Hence choose a CBD oil that certifies and agrees to the condition. THC is a compound majorly found in Marijuana plants and linked with psychoactive properties. CBD oil is nothing but a form of CBD available in the market that can be consumed orally. CBD for dogs can be the best choice you can make for getting your pet a better and relaxed lifestyle with less health issues. Just you need to place two to three drops of this oil under the tongue of your dog.
As per a recent study, it was reported that 63% of veterinarians were asked by the pet owners once a month to feed CBD oil to their dogs. Veterinarians generally don’t prefer talking about it; they don’t advise the patient for the same. In many of the states where CBD is legalized, veterinarians advise their patients to have CBD oil. You cannot expect a prescription of CBD for your pet from any veterinarian. They might advise you but won’t prescribe you to do so. Also if the CBD is legal in a state, a physician cannot prescribe you to consume CBD.
Dogs that suffer from osteoarthritis must be given 2 mg per kg of your dog’s weight. This dosage is as per your dog’s comfort level. Also, you must not consider only this survey as this might be biased and not accurate, hence you should consider this recommendation. You must have in your mind that each dog will have a different response to the CBD oil and hence you must start slow. Later you can adjust the dosage as per the results that you see in your dog. You can take the reference of the doses mentioned on the label, but be aware it is as per manufacturers. Since CBD is not regulated, it has no fixed doses.
Once you give CBD oil to your dog, wait and watch for the outcomes be it positive or negative. For instance, if you provide your dog with 10mg of CBD oil before a park visit, it might lay around or might become enthusiastic. Hence to decide whether it is effective or not, you must give it time. If your dog had arthritis and it could move around and jump after consuming CBD oil for one week, it’s a positive result.
If your dog feels lethargic, vomiting, issues in urine, or any other side effects, this can be termed as negative results of CBD. If your pet is facing any of these, it must have over consumed the CBD oil and is now intoxicated. In this case, you should consult a veterinarian immediately and get it treated.
To wrap up you must be aware that only limited surveys and research have been conducted on CBD for pets. Although CBD is not by now regulated by FDA, its medicinal usage is legal as per the farm bill of 2018. Certain beginner-level researchers say that CBD is extremely useful in treating pain and inflammation in dogs.
