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.

    Helps with kitties too! I give a few drops to my senior cat and to help him feel more relaxed around our other rambunctious kitten.

      Hi Emily, do you put it in your cats food, and how does it react?.I have a 15 year old cat, about 6 lbs, with the usual creaky joints, though she is mobile. Thanks!

    It’s so nice that CBD oil can help pets. One of my cousins has an older dog, so it sounds like CBD oil could help with some of his discomfort. Thanks for all the great information on the benefits of CBD oil for pets.

    I am happy to read your review, Thank you. I’ve just placed an order for myself and my semi-retired Service Dog. She will be 15 April 27th. She has 11 pins holding her pelvis together after getting hit by a car at 1. She became my SD at 4. We have been on many, many adventures together and she is old, and cranky. We are both looking forward to our package!

    I am in Canada and it looks like many people order from here for their pets. My vet agreed that I should try it on my 10 year old beagle for an unidentified reason for yelping and quivering. This happened twice in the last 4 months and I would like to give him some CBD oil from our local shops as it is legal in Canada. Do you think that CBD is the same for humans and pets, in the appropriate dosage?

  5. Kathy Burgess says:

    Do I give the tincture once a day to my dog? Or some at breakfast and some at dinner. I feed him twice a day.

    • McCarton Ackerman says:

      Hi Kathy, this depends on how your dog responds to CBD. Some pets take it once a day and some take it more often. We recommend starting out with once daily, using the recommended serving size on the label, and increasing or decreasing the amount as needed.

    • Lazarus Naturals Team says:

      Hi Linda. Every animal reacts differently to CBD, so we can’t provide exact times. If you don’t aren’t seeing the desired benefits in your pet after a few hours, it’s possible that you may need to slightly increase the serving size.
