Are CBD Animal Treats Good For Your Pet?

With so much hype about CBD, we wanted to explore: Are CBD Animal Treats Good For Your Pet?

There are many benefits of CBD for pets, from anxiety, nerves, separation anxiety, new beginnings, and various illness-related issues that animals can have.

CBD has been known to help alleviate pain and problems for both humans and animals.

The Science Of CBD

How does CBD affect your pets? And how much of the information out there is true?

Much of what we know about CBD and pets are purely anecdotal, which means it can’t be trusted. Unfortunately, according to this study in Toxicology Communications (2018), there are still some looming gaps in scientific knowledge about CBD and pets.

We know that there are few if any, side effects of CBD in dogs for example, which is promising. If your dog is taking other medications or experiencing liver problems, CBD may not be a good option for your pup.

What to Look for in CBD Pet Products

Look for veterinary-safe CBD products that conduct third-party testing.

Also, look for a seal from the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC). And just to be sure, check out the list of ingredients and cannabinoid composition.

You’ll want to verify that it only contains cannabidiol, or CBD, and nothing else that might be harmful to your pet.

When in doubt? Ask the Vet!
