Is CBD Safe For Cats And Dogs?

Many pet owners are turning to CBD Hemp oil as a natural and effective remedy for their pet’s health issues. 

Cats and dogs have become like children in modern households. Nobody likes to see their pet suffer, and many of us would do anything to relieve their pain. 

So for good reason, the questions arises as to whether or not CBD oil is safe for cats and dogs. The short and sweet of it is: YES. 

Now let’s go a little deeper, so you can make a more informed choice…

Does CBD Really Benefit Cats And Dogs?

CBD oil works similar in cats and dogs as it does in humans. This is because all mammals have what is called an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a branch of our nervous systems. 

Because CBD works on the ECS, we can observe similar benefits in mammals as we do in humans, such as relief of pain, anxiety, skin issues, sleep issues and cancer symptoms. 

Not only is CBD safe for cats and dogs, but it will actually help to enhance their overall well being, whether they are experiencing health challenges or not.

CBD For Cats Vs. CBD For Dogs

As we outlined in this article, there are some key differences between CBD for cats and CBD for dogs. The primary one being dosage, due to the weight of your furry friend, and the ingredients list.

Anyone who has a cat, knows how temperamental they can be. Well it’s no different with their digestive systems.

A cat’s digestive system is a lot different than a dog’s. As a result, not all CBD for Pets products are easily absorbed and digested by cats.

For that reason, we have specially formulated our CBD for Cats so it’s easily digestible, with no additives, fillers or flavoring.

Dogs on the other hand can scarf down just about anything. However, they still deserve the best! 

Many CBD for dog and pet formulas use inferior ingredients and choose CBD isolate rather than full spectrum CBD. 

We have created our full spectrum CBD for Dogs formula without additives, fillers or flavoring, so your dog gets all the benefits of CBD without any nasty stuff.

CBD: A Healthier And Safer Option

A favorite remedy for your pet’s health issues, and for good reason, is CBD oil. CBD oil works safely and broadly on the ECS, and because this branch of the nervous system is found in all parts of the body, health and well-being tends to improve on many levels. 

If your pet is suffering from a variety of health concerns, CBD could be the perfect remedy. In fact, you may give your pet CBD for anxiety, and find that their skin, fur and digestion improve as well.  

Simply adding a few drops of our CBD for dogs or our CBD for Cats to your pet’s food is a perfect way to administer the doses. We have specially made two oils to cater to your dog or cat’s unique needs.

Effective and Safe Dosage For Cats & Dogs

Every pet is different, and the list of symptoms will vary as well. Therefore, take this advice with a grain of salt, and experiment for yourself to find the dose that works.

To administer the oil, we suggest mixing the drops in a bowl of pet food. Alternatively, you can drop them directly in your pet’s mouth, however that may prove difficult! It may take anywhere from 15-60 minutes for the oil to take effect.

How to Use CBD For Cats:

Add 0.25ml (4.2mg CBD) to your cat’s food or directly into their mouth. Repeat twice daily or as directed by your veterinarian. 

There are approximately 140 servings per bottle.

CBD Dosage For Your Dog

                          • ≤25 lbs: 10 drops
                          • 26-50 lbs: 20 drops
                          • >50lbs: 30 drops

Each bottle should have about 1400 drops, so depending on the size of your dog, you will get between 47-140 servings of CBD for your dog.

A Blessing for Rescues…

It has become common practice to adopt and care for rescue animals. With this act of kindness, can come certain responsibilities. 

Animals, especially dogs and cats, are able to feel emotions. Many rescue animals have experienced extreme abuse and trauma, and so they tend to be more prone to negative emotions like anxiety. Depending on the level of abuse, some animals may have even been physically harmed. 

These issues, which often are life long, can result in expensive treatments, such as surgeries, pharmaceutical anti-depressants and painkillers, such as Xanax, and in extreme cases, euthanasia.

Not only are these treatments expensive, but they can also negatively impact your pet’s emotional and physical well-being. However there are many natural solutions that can reduce or even remove the need for these treatments, with CBD being one of many.

Hemp Is One Of Many Solutions…

There are some other very easy and simple natural remedies that pet owners can begin implementing right away. Beyond CBD, there are many other safe and nature based solutions to health challenges. 

By way of nature, cats and dogs are primarily carnivores. Many household pet foods contain fillers such as grains, starches and even chemical preservatives and additives.

 Your pet loves these formulas, but that is because this food has been engineered to be deliciously addictive. Simply switching your pet to a natural formula, or feeding them more raw meats, can bring dramatic improvements to their health.

You can also add turmeric to your cat or dog’s food. Inflammation is the root of many diseases, so turmeric’s anti-inflammatory qualities can assist with pain, digestion, skin and overall well-being. 

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), especially Omega-3s, are extremely effective for reducing inflammation, and promoting skin, hair and brain function. Fish are rich in omega-3, especially their skin, and you can also buy fish oil for your pets.
