You may have come across CBD oil products for dogs and wondered what the benefits are for your canine friend. Are the benefits of CBD oil for dogs truly significant or is this just a fad? Is it safe or does CBD oil have side effects that could potentially harm them?
The Research and Development team at Lazarus Naturals has worked hard to deliver a CBD Pet Tincture that helps manage general anxiety, nerves during fireworks or car rides and with arthritis for older animals. Our customers have shared testimonials of using our CBD Pet Tincture on their dogs and seeing benefits that include an overall increase in comfort and activity.
How Does CBD Oil For Dogs Work?
Similarly to humans, dogs have an endocannabinoid system and can utilize some of the effects of CBD like humans do. CBD can help produce relaxing effects by targeting receptors located in the brain, central nervous system, organs and immune cells.
How Do I Give CBD To Dogs?
Our CBD Pet Tincture comes with a graduated dropper to ensure accurate serving sizes. It can be administered sublingually or mixed into food. The bottle includes serving recommendations based on their weight. We recommend starting out with a lower amount and adjusting as needed.
Less than 15lbs: 3 drops (1.5mg)
15-30lbs: 6 drops (3mg)
30-60lbs: 10 drops (5mg)
Over 60lbs: 20 drops (10mg)
Research On CBD Oil For Dogs
Due to the prior federal classification of hemp as a Schedule I substance, there is a lack of ample research on the benefits of CBD oil for dogs.
The American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation has awarded a substantial research grant to Dr. Stephanie McGrath, a neurologist at Colorado State University’s James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Her work will be a larger study to test the effects of CBD on 60 epileptic dogs, all of whom have not responded well to conventional treatments.
We always recommend doing research to learn more. For more information, visit our About CBD page.
