CBD-Infused Pet Products: When Quality Counts
The use of CBD ingredients in pet products is quickly gaining popularity. Veterinarians are increasingly recommending CBD oil as a means of treating a host of issues for the family pet. Like humans, dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system that allows them to benefit from CBD oil.
CAN MY PET BENEFIT FROM CBD?
Published studies have shown that CBD can be effective at reducing pain scores in dogs with osteoarthritis. In fact, a small Cornell University study on 16 dogs with osteoarthritis showed that a twice-daily dose of CBD oil helped minimize pain and increase activity. Other research has shown that giving CBD oil to dogs with epilepsy can help reduce the frequency of their seizures.
CBD has also become a popular treatment to help curb anxiety in pets. While there haven’t yet been any randomized, controlled clinical trials that looked at these markers, anecdotal accounts show promise. According to a 2018 study in Frontiers in Veterinary Science, when asked about the effectiveness of CBD products on dogs with anxiety — either based on their own personal observations or client reports — nearly 225 of 833 vets surveyed said they were “very helpful” in managing the condition, while another 65% said they were “somewhat helpful.” The same study found that 61% of 379 surveyed vets said CBD products were “somewhat effective” in the treatment of storm or firework phobias.
