CBD for Dogs: Dosages for Common Health Conditions

CBD for Dogs: Dosages for Common Health Conditions

Much like their human counterparts, dogs are prone to common health conditions including pain and anxiety. In fact, approximately 80 percent of dogs suffer from arthritis by age eight,1 and a recent study shows over 72 percent of dogs from 264 different breeds exhibited anxiety symptoms ranging from noise sensitivity to aggression.2

So, what can you do to help your four-legged friend better manage these all-too-common conditions this National Dog Day? CBD pet supplements may offer a good starting point.

How Humans and Pets Benefit

Despite CBD’s semi-recent upswing of awareness among the general public, it didn’t take long for our four-legged friends to become a part of the conversation. If CBD can help human anxiety and pain relief, why not dogs? Eventually, research from Cornell University caught up to human speculation, revealing CBD given to dogs suffering from arthritis twice daily aided in pain relief and quality of life.3 According to the American Kennel Club, other animal-based research shows CBD is effective at reducing inflammation, relieving nausea and fighting infection in addition to a massive influx of anecdotal treatment evidence from pet owners.3

Check out pet CBD enthusiast Betsy O.’s review below:

“I have dogs who benefit from the pet treats and oil. My older gal, Gracie, takes the oil daily to keep a lively step as she ages. Cece suffers from anxiety from loud, abrupt noises, so the pet treats and oil taken daily help alleviate her stress.”
