We know you want the absolute best care for your furry family members.

Dog and cat owners have increasingly been seeking out CBD products for their pets, especially now that the 2018 Farm Bill has passed. CBD for cats and dogs has been thought to provide a variety of therapeutic benefits. Everyone is looking for options to help relieve their pets from pain, to help manage seizures, anxiety, arthritis, and other health problems.

How is this possible?

Just like humans, most animals have an endocannabinoid system which allows neurotransmitters and receptors to interact with cannabinoids, causing them to activate, and therefore, allowing them to experience the therapeutic benefits of CBD.

How do you know if CBD is right for your pet?

More and more studies are showing the effectiveness of CBD helping with health conditions in people and animals. To know if CBD is right for your pet, contact your veterinarian and ask them how CBD can help your furry friend. Most veterinarians are open to discussing CBD options for animals. They are the best resource for finding dosages and monitoring possible side effects for your pet.

How can you tell what products are safe for your pet?

It is very important to be cautious about where your CBD products are coming from. Because the market is not yet regulated, it can be difficult to know what products are safe for pets. WARNING: THC is toxic to pets so, please be sure the CBD products you are giving your animals are derived from industrial hemp. We recommend doing your research and ensure that the products you buy have been tested and contain 0.0% THC. To know if a product has been tested, look for evidence of 3rd party testing where you are buying the product. On a Certificate of Analysis you will find THC and other cannabinoid content. Your veterinarian can also help you consider what products and dosages are right for your animal.
