Treating Your Dog With CBD
Updated: May 14
Every dog has its day? What if you could control when that day is? With advancements in cannabidiol(CBD) dogs that suffer from anxiety, pain, cancer, arthritis and mild seizures now have a clean healthy alternative. A study in 2018 performed a clinical trial in the antidepressant properties and anti-pain properties of CBD oil in dogs with osteoarthritis. During this trial eighty percent of the dogs showed improvement in mobility and pain.
How Much CBD Should I give My Dog?
Every dog is different and sometimes it's hard to tell but if you follow that Tayco Method you can find a dose that works for you and your best friend.
Start with a low dose(2mg for dogs under 40LBS and 4mg for dogs over 40LBS).
Monitor your pet's reactions.
Increase or lower dose based off of your pet.
The affects of CBD and Dogs
If you're giving your dog CBD, be sure to monitor your pet's reaction, whether it be positive or negative.
For instants, if you give your dog CBD and twenty minutes later, when someone knocks on the door you find your dog lying comfortably when they'd otherwise be barking plenty. The CBD is taking effect.
If your dog is taking CBD and twenty minutes later they are lethargic, vomiting and loss of balance they may have consumed too much CBD and are experiencing toxic effects.
In this case, it’s best to visit your veterinarian. They’ll be able to help you regardless of whether they’re willing to discuss CBD with you.
It’s important to recognize that research on CBD in pets is short supply. CBD isn’t currently regulated by the FDA, so there may be safety issues if products are inaccurately labeled. On the other hand, anecdotal evidence and some strong preliminary studies suggest that CBD may be useful in treating certain conditions in dogs. If you are thinking about giving your dog CBD talk to your vet first and then follow the Tayco method to assure your pet is consuming the right dose of CBD.
