If your dog tends to snatch treats from your fingers, deliver them on a flat, open palm.
What Medical Conditions CBD for Dogs & Cats Help With
At CBD Care 4 Pets, we are always striving to educate people on the evolving and exciting science of CBD and how it can benefit our pets.
Below is a list of the medical conditions that CBD for dogs and cats can help treat.
The double action of CBD acting on the inhibitory neurotransmission mechanism of the endocannabinoids as well as the natural inhibitory effect of serotonin receptors helps provide for a calmer and less anxious dog or cat.
We already know that the principal effect of cannabinoids in the central nervous system is the tempering of excitatory impulses, generally by inhibiting the release of cyclic-AMP. What this means is that nerve impulses are not sent from one neuron to another. This causes a generalized reduction in brain electrical activity. In short, the brain is able to go into a more relaxed and calmer state, something that you would want to happen in an anxious dog or cat.
The effects of cannabidiol on the 5-NT, the receptor can be likened to the action of commercially-available anti-anxiety drugs. Many of these medications act by stimulating serotonin receptors which, in turn, increases the amount of the inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. While one of the effects of serotonin is an elevation of mood, it also has a more pronounced effect on reducing symptoms of anxiety or even fear.
Given that dogs and cats also experience fear or anxiety and that this can be demonstrated in a variety of dog and cat behaviors such as accidents, howling, barking, aggression, chewing, and even muscle tremors, providing them with CBD oil should help ensure a calmer, more peaceful dog or cat.
One of the most sought-after effects of CBD oil is the management of seizures and seizure-like manifestations such as muscle spasms, tremors, and even tics. Seizures or convulsions are typically described as involuntary and uncontrollable contractions of the muscles. These are brought about by the abnormally erratic firing of electrical nerve impulses originating from the brain. Instead of synchronized discharge of nerve impulses, what happens is that there is asynchronicity.
Neurotransmitters are sent out from one neuron to the next, typically in rapid succession but more importantly in a disorganized manner. Since the skeletal muscles are innervated by the peripheral nervous system, they receive these asynchronous, erratic neural messages such that they contract in an uncontrollable fashion. Furthermore, because of the flooding of electrical nerve impulses at the motor endplates of muscles, the contractions are sustained and more forceful than ever.
The problem here is not really in the muscle itself, but rather in the brain. Erratic electrical discharge from the brain does not allow for the efficient distribution of oxygen and glucose to the cells of the brain. If the seizure takes an unusually long time to subside, there is a possibility that the area upon which these abnormal neuronal discharges occur will be greatly deprived of glucose and oxygen. This can lead to substantial reduction in brain tissue oxygenation, a condition medical and veterinary professionals call cerebral hypoxia.
Cerebral hypoxia, if not treated immediately, can lead to irreversible death to the cells of that part of the brain. Stroke may ensue or, in most cases, cerebral hypoperfusion injuries can occur. These can send your dog or cat into a coma if not death.
Cannabidiol can help reduce the severity of convulsions or seizures by preventing the likelihood of hyper-excitable neurons. This helps prevent the abnormal erratic discharges from the brain itself.
There are many theories about pain. However, when it comes to the use of cannabinoids in the management of pain, it is a widely-held observation that its analgesic effects are closely related to the modulation of noradrenaline coming from the brainstem and descending towards the dorsal horn of the spinal cord.
What happens is that these nerve fibers are known to possess GABAergic activity or one that is fully capable of suppressing nerve excitation. When endocannabinoids such as palmitoylethanolamide and anandemide bind to certain receptors in the descending tract of the spinal column, they increase the release of noradrenaline which helps attenuate the pain impulses being processed by the noxious sensory neurons found in the dorsal horn. In other words, they block the processing of these pain impulses by flooding it with noradrenaline while also increasing the inhibitory properties of GABAergic fibers.
This can have significant implications in the management of pain for dogs and cats. When taken together with CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, one can see that its use in certain chronic canine pain syndromes such as arthritis and other types of pain is a welcome relief for our beloved canine friends.
We believe that cannabidiol has excellent anti-inflammatory effects. This was highlighted in a 2012 research that showed CBD to be especially effective in reducing the symptoms of inflammation in acute lung injury. Another study in the same year also established the crucial anti-inflammatory activities of CBD in the management of acute pancreatitis. These 2 studies supported the earlier 2006 investigation that suggested CBD as an important adjunct in the management of neuropathic pain and chronic inflammation. While it is easy to say that these studies were never performed using dogs or cats as test subjects, using laboratory mice instead, the results nevertheless, underscore the increasing importance of cannabidiol in the management of chronic inflammatory disorders.
The ability of cannabidiol as a powerful anti-inflammatory is strongly associated with the location of the cannabinoid type 2 (CB2) receptors which are mostly found in immune system cells such as monocytes, macrophages, and T-and I, lymphocytes. Its activity on cytokines helps improve the anti-inflammatory action of these immune system cells so that they become very efficient in the management of chronic inflammatory disorders in dogs and cats such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disorder, canine encephalitis, canine chronic bronchitis, masticatory muscle myositis, acquired myasthenia gravis, and even demodectic mange.
Since one of the cardinal signs of inflammatory processes is the occurrence of pain, the action of cannabidiol on immune system cells can help target two principal problems: pain and inflammation.
Nausea and Vomiting In Dogs and Cats
There are a lot of reasons why dogs or cats can get nausea or exhibit vomiting. In most cases, it is often related to a change in the dog or cat’s usual dietary patterns. However, it can also be brought about by other reasons such as bacterial infections, foreign body ingestion, acute liver failure, intestinal parasitism, pancreatitis, viral infections, inflammation of the gallbladder, and even as effects of undergoing surgery. Whatever the case, nausea and vomiting in dogs and cats are almost always characterized by abnormal gastric and intestinal motility.
There are three ways in which cannabidiol can help dogs and cats with nausea and vomiting. First, by interacting with CB1 receptors, the endogenous cannabinoids released will help inhibit the firing of cAMP into succeeding neurons. This helps reduce the number of electrical impulses traveling towards the gut, reducing gastric and intestinal motility.
Second, since CB2 receptors are also abundant in the gastrointestinal system, their stimulation can help prevent the activity of the immune system on normal gut flora, allowing for the more efficient digestion and absorption of food molecules which can help minimize nausea and vomiting.
Third, the activity of CBD on 5-HT, can also help minimize nausea and vomiting in dogs and cats. Stimulation of the serotonin receptor has been proven to reduce the sensation of nausea while also suppressing the vomiting reflex.
Certain Types of Cancer
One of the most remarkable areas where cannabidiol preparations are now being used on dogs and cats is in the management of certain types of cancers. The area has received widespread attention when several promising studies showed the potentially beneficial effects of CBD on cancer treatment.
For example, the Boston-based Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center showed in 2011 that cannabidiol has the potential to cause apoptosis or programmed cell death in the neoplastic cells of breast cancer. The Naples, Italy-based University of Naples Federico II published a report indicating that CBD may help prevent the growth, development, and spread of colon cancer tumor cells.
Madrid-based Complutense University went another avenue studying instead the synergistic qualities of cannabidiol in the enhancement of the cancer cell-killing effects of onco-chemotherapeutic agents. The study underscored the activity of CBD in hastening the rate upon which the active ingredients of chemotherapeutic agents are absorbed by cancer cells. At the same time the study observed healthy, normal cells were substantially protected because of their reduced exposure to the chemotherapeutic agents.
Since certain breeds of dogs and cats are also more prone in the development of certain types of cancer, adding CBD oil in their diet or even as regular supplementation should protect them against these cancers.
What CBD Oil Could Do for the Health of Your Pets
As pet owners we want our furry friends to live long comfortable and satisfying lives. It is our top goal to help our pets maintain good physical and mental health for as long as possible. There are countless international and more recently, State-side medical studies that suggest that the proper use of quality CBD products can help your pet live a happy, healthy, and balanced life.
How CBD Works
Why You Should Consider Giving CBD To Your Dog or Cat
You may have heard friends talking about how much CBD has helped their pet, or perhaps a veterinarian has suggested CBD usage for a particular ailment your pet has developed. If you are considering buying CBD for your pet, it is helpful to know what it can and cannot do, what the benefits and risks are, and how it affects your pet and their health first.
Dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system just like humans. While the system of receptors is not as diverse and widespread in your pet, the same receptors affecting mood, sleep, and joint function and pain relief are present. This means that your pet can benefit from CBD, just like humans do. CBD can help your pet with a broad variety of ailments. Just like in humans, it might not work for every pet, but the therapeutic effects are often visible in a much shorter time frame. For the pets that respond favorably to CBD supplementation, the effects can be life-changing.
Benefits of CBD Oil for Pets
Cannabidiol remedies can be used in pets for many of the same ailments that humans use them for. Here are just some of the things that CBD can help with:
- Anxiety and mood
- Energy levels
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Anxiety and mood
- Hip dysplasia or arthritis
- Tumors or growths
- Improved quality of life
Is CBD Safe for Pets?
Yes, CBD is considered generally safe for both dogs and cats, with a low risk of any side effects, most of them minor. Even the American Kennel Club has recommended CBD usage, and is currently sponsoring the largest CBD study of its kind at Colorado State University. Countless veterinarians have recommended and even prescribed cannabidiol for a wide range of ailments that pets suffer from. Any risks from CBD usage for your pet are very small, while the benefits can be enormous.
The most common side effect reported is excessive sleepiness or lethargy. If your pet experiences a noticeable decline in activity levels, try using a smaller dose. Different ages, sizes and even breeds can react more sensitively to CBD oil.
Dogs have a higher concentration of cannabinoid receptors than cats. CBD is well-tolerated by all dog breeds, with the larger breeds (German Shepherd, Golden Retrievers, Siberian Huskies, Labradors) more responsive to higher or more frequent CBD doses than the smaller breeds (Terriers, Chihuahuas, Spaniels, etc). More active or “working” breeds may also need higher CBD dosages to see the best therapeutic effect. As with any medication or supplement, consult your veterinarian if you have questions or concerns about CBD interaction with any other medication your dog may be taking.
Cats can also benefit from CBD usage, especially those with age-related decline in movement or behavior. Despite their smaller size, cats often require a larger cannabidiol dose than dogs by body weight to see the most benefits, as they have less endocannabinoid receptors. Cats are typically more likely to take CBD on treats rather than administered directly by mouth, so you can add CBD drops to their water dish and monitor dosage by how much they drink. As with dogs, if your cat seems sleepy or lethargic after eating or drinking CBD oil, consider reducing the amount and monitoring their results. CBD has no known toxicity level to any breed of cat, and its safety is well-tested.
What Dosage of CBD is safe for Pets
You will need to make sure that your pet has a dose that is safe and effective. You must carefully control the amount of CBD in their dosage. You should avoid giving your pet so much CBD that their energy levels or mood are negatively affected. You only want to give enough to get the medicinal value, excess cannabidiol is unlikely to be beneficial. For most pets, you should start with just ½ dropper of total CBD oil per day, and possibly less for very small or sensitive breeds. For larger and active breeds, you may raise the dosage to several droppers per day, depending on how quickly they react and what your veterinarian recommends. CBD Pet cannabidiol oil contains zero amounts of the THC cannabinoid, which can be unhealthy to pets, so there isn’t a risk of “overdosing” animals using our CBD products. Each is batch-tested to ensure quality and consistency.
Are there Side Effects?
Some CBD side effects are possible for your pet, but they are not extreme. The most common side effect that you will see in your pet is sleepiness. If your pet seems to be too drowsy after their application, simply reduce their dose. If you have a pet with high anxiety levels, the sleepiness may help with calming your pet down. If your pet has a sensitive stomach, too much CBD at once in extreme cases may result in vomiting. If your pet seems drowsy, tired, or unsteady, try reducing their CBD intake before discontinuing use. Consult your veterinarian if you think your pet is having a negative reaction, or their sleep seems to be affected.
How Much do I Give my Pet?
With cannabidiol, less is more. If this does not work, you can always go higher, but you should seldom need to use more than 3-4 droppers-full per day.
How to Administer
There are several ways that you can administer cannabidiol oil to your pet. Some pets will let you put the oil dropper in their mouth directly. Most animals (especially cats) you will need to instead add the drops to food, treats or water. CBD oil drops can be added directly to daily pet food, or put directly on treats. Our CBD oil for pets is in a base of natural hemp oil and has a fairly neutral taste, so even picky pets will typically ingest CBD if given the proper delivery method.
Many pet owners who have tried CBD for their furry friend have found positive benefits, and we hope you will do the same. If a trusted friend or veterinarian has recommended CBD Care 4 Pets to you, we hope you try it out and see how much CBD can do for your pet. We are happy to answer any questions you have and offer a 30 Day Guarantee on all orders of CBD Care 4 Pets placed through our website.
What CBD Oil Could Do for the Health of Your Pets
More and more people are using CBD oil to maintain their health and treat various conditions. The benefits of CBD oil stretch far and wide, and it’s especially getting a lot of buzz today because of its effectiveness in relieving stress and anxiety – conditions that are almost unavoidable in the modern world.
But the wonders of CBD oil shouldn’t be reserved for humans only. Not just humans, but all vertebrates have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which fine-tunes numerous vital physiological functions and helps the body regain internal balance. So when pets ingest cannabinoids, the cannabinoids will interact with the ECS receptors (called CB1 and CB2 receptors) just like they do for humans. This supports a healthy ECS and triggers beneficial responses throughout the body, helping it fight various ailments.
If you have a furry friend whose health and well being depends on you, you’ll want to know all about this. Here’s how you can use CBD oil to take care of your pet and help them live a happy, healthy life.
Reducing anxiety and stress
Extensive research has been conducted to prove how cannabidiol can help people with PTSD, panic attacks, anxiety disorders and overall stress relief. Because other mammals respond to CBD via receptors the same way as we do, it’s no surprise that it has the same calming effects on pets.
Most pets, dogs especially, suffer from separation anxiety, which is something that leaves their owners worried and feeling guilty every time they leave the house. This is a real problem and we could never fathom the stress our pets experience when we leave them alone, but CBD oil can be used to help them feel calm and peaceful. Pets can also suffer from anxiety and phobias to various extents for different reasons, most often as a result of previous trauma, so CBD oil can be used as a cure for their condition in the same way it’s being used to treat people with PTSD.
Pets are often affected by various bacterial infections, and unfortunately, a lot of visits to the vet result in prescriptions for antibiotics. Synthetic antibiotics have numerous side effects, most notably disrupting the gastrointestinal system by killing the “good”, healthy bacteria along with the bad. Research has shown that all cannabinoids have antibiotic properties so CBD oil can be an equally effective but more healthy and gentle treatment for a pet’s bacterial infection.
Unfortunately, dogs are no stranger to epilepsy, and a fewer number of cats may experience seizures. Cannabinoids are now being used extensively to treat seizures in humans, as they’re proving to be more effective than any other kind of treatment. It’s no surprise to see that CBD oils for pets are now used as an alternative and efficient way to treat epilepsy and reduce or completely stop seizures, tics, tremors, and spasms.
The effects that cannabinoids and other substances found in hemp and cannabis have on treating tumors has been studied extensively, This has completely changed cancer treatment for the better. Cannabidiol is known to kill cancer cells as it blocks their energy-producing abilities, and some studies show that CBD can even stop cancer cells from growing. Inarguably, CBD oil can be used not just to treat cancers and tumors in pets, but to prevent them from developing in the first place.
Studies have shown that cannabidiol (CBD) has the most analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties in comparison to other cannabinoids. That’s why CBD oil is often used to reduce inflammation and pain in injured cats and dogs, as well as for relieving chronic and intestinal inflammation. This helps with a wide variety of conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease. It’s a more healthy and natural alternative to painkillers and other drugs which can potentially harm a pet’s internal organs just like they do for humans.
How Does CBD for Animals Work?
So how does CBD for dogs work? To understand this it is important to understand that all cannabinoids, including CBD, work by interacting with cannabinoid receptors in the dog’s body. These receptors are labeled as CB1 and CB2 by scientists.
Cannabinoid type 1(CB1) receptors are mostly found in the nervous system, both central and peripheral. When these receptors are stimulated they cause a reduction in intracellular cAMP by inhibiting the production of adenylate cyclase. In other words, CB1 receptors induce a reduction in nerve impulse transmission since cAlvIP is a nervous system messenger. It is important to take note that the nervous system does not only include the brain and spinal cord, but all other organs throughout the dog’s body since everything is connected to the central nervous system by way of nerves. Even the skin has nerves in its structure, otherwise there won’t be pain felt.
Cannabinoid type 2 (CB2) receptors are mostly found in the immune system, the gastrointestinal system, and the peripheral nervous system; although recent studies say that CB2 receptors are also found in the brain, albeit in substantially lesser amounts than CB1 receptors. In the immune system, these receptors have been isolated in the thymus, tonsils, and spleen where they are observed to be responsible for the release of cytokines. Cannabinoid type 2 receptors are mostly found in macrophages, T-lymphocytes, 0-lymphocytes, and monocytes of the immune system.
In the gut, CB2 receptors have been shown to play a role in reducing inflammation that are typically observed in chronic inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Specifically, these receptors help prevent the inactivation of the normal gut flora. Cannabinoid type 2 receptors are also known to play a role in alleviating pain originating from peripheral tissues, although not coming from nociceptive neurons.
Why is it important to learn the two cannabinoid receptors? Well, as we have already mentioned, cannabidiol or CBD exerts its effects primarily by interacting with these receptors. As such, you can say that learning the activities of these receptors can also pave the way towards greater understanding of the action of CBD.
Not necessarily. You see, while both THC and CBD interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors, there are a few differences.
• THC is more specific to CB1 receptors and hence, has more psychoactive effects than CBD.
• THC binds directly to the CB1 receptor so that the effects are readily apparent.
• CBD has been shown to have very low affinity for both CB1 and CB2 receptors.
• CBD still interacts with both CB1 and CB2 receptors but does not directly bind to the receptors.
• CBD attaches itself to the receptors rather indirectly in a process many scientists call as modulation.
It is the last statement that we will look into the second most important element to understanding how cannabidiol or CBD works.
Since CBD inherently modulates the activities of cannabinoid receptors, what this essentially means is that it stimulates the dog’s body into producing and releasing its very own cannabinoids. As such, if tetrahydrocannabinol provides the dog’s body with readily-available cannabinoids, CBD doesn’t. Instead CBD stimulates the dog’s body into producing its own cannabinoids. That is why it doesn’t produce the psychoactive or addicting effects since the cannabinoids that are produced are naturally-occurring and not exogenous. It is also for this reason that these naturally-occurring cannabinoids make up what is now known as the endocannabinoid system or ECS.
Here is a list of the different functions that the endocannabinoid system is known for.
• Inhibits the release of certain neurotransmitters to help temper neuronal excitability
• Increases appetite by acting on the hypothalamic nuclei
• Plays a huge role in maintaining balance in terms of nutrient transport and energy storage by acting on the cells of the gut, fat cells, liver cells, endocrine tissues of the pancreas, and skeletal muscle cells
• Inhibits excessive arousal which can play a role in toning down anxiety and seizure in dogs
• Improves the functionality of immune system cells particularly B- and T- lymphocytes, macrophages, and monobles
• Serves as neuromodulator for ameliorating inflammation and skeletal muscle spasms
• Down-regulates intestinal motility as well as the nerve impulse transmission to the smooth muscles of the reproductive, urinary, and digestive systems
• Suppresses the noxious sensory neuronal responses in the spinal column to reduce pain sensation
• Regulates body temperature
• Promotes sleep by decreasing wakefulness and increasing REM sleep and slow-wave sleep
• Elevates exercise-associated mood by acting on the central nervous system
Since cannabidiol or CBD acts to stimulate the production of endogenous cannabinoids in the dog’s body, it is now very clear how this particular substance can bring about the much-talked about health benefits to our pets.
Cannabidiol (CBD) does not only exert its effects on the endocannabinold system. CBD has been known to exhibit an agonistic activity to this serotonin receptor which can help further explain its use in both seizure and anxiety control in dogs. This action on the receptor is also what gives CBD its neumprotective properties.
So, how does CBD work?
• It modulates the activities of cannabinoid receptor types 1 and 2.
• It stimulates the production of endogenous cannabinoids through activation of the endocannabinoid system.
• It stimulates a certain type of serotonin receptor.
7 Amazing Benefits of CBD for Dogs, Cats, and Other Pets
The effects of CBD are similar in humans, dogs, cats, and other pets.
This is because, just like humans, dogs and cats also have an endocannabinoid system that functions much in the same way as the human ECS.
Many of the conditions we’ll list below (like anxiety, arthritis, pain, and convulsions) manifest much in the same way in pets as they do in humans.
The 7 Most Common CBD Benefits for Animals
1. Powerful Painkiller
4. Stress Reliever
6. Anticancer Effects
7. Promotes Homeostasis
Here is a detailed list of some of the major benefits of CBD which can improve the health of your pet.
Keep in mind these apply to dogs, cats, and other pets.
There are even more benefits than these, however, these 7 will apply to the majority of conditions.
1. CBD is a Powerful Painkiller
In 1997, a study published in the European Journal of Pharmacology showed that the endocannabinoid system was deeply involved in managing pain.
Today, CBD has become renowned for its painkilling properties.
CBD can help manage pain in many different ways.
First of all, studies have shown that CBD can temporarily stop the absorption of anandamide, a chemical that helps dampen pain signals in the brain.
This temporary increase in anandamide can have various effects, one of them being reduced pain sensations.
Secondly, CBD has been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory.
By reducing the inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, for example, CBD is also able to reduce the painful symptoms caused by the condition.
2. CBD is a Known Anticonvulsant
Perhaps one of the best-known medicinal uses for CBD is its ability to help controls seizures, tremors, tics, and spasms.
That’s because CBD is a natural anticonvulsant.
News of CBD’s natural anticonvulsant properties first broke in 2013 when the story of Charlotte Figi, a young girl with epilepsy, made headlines across the globe.
Charlotte’s only hope for managing her 300 weekly seizures was a tincture now known as Charlotte’s Web, made from CBD rich cannabis.
Since then, numerous studies have proven that CBD can help manage a wide variety of tremors, spasms, and tics.
For example, multiple studies have shown that CBD can help manage seizures caused by epilepsy.
Other studies have also shown that CBD can help manage spasticity caused by multiple sclerosis, and research also suggests that CBD can help manage the tics and tremors caused by Tourette’s syndrome.
Unfortunately, it isn’t quite clear how CBD works as an anticonvulsant.
Seizures are generally believed to be caused by the rapid, uncontrolled firing of neurons in the brain.
Preliminary research suggests CBD can help restore order to these neurons, causing them to fire normally and essentially prevent the onset of seizures.
3. CBD is Anti-Inflammatory
As I mentioned earlier, CBD is renowned for its anti-inflammatory effects.
In fact, the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD are believed to be one of the main reasons the compound is so useful in treating a wide variety of conditions.
CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects are believed to be linked to its ability to interact with receptors in immune cells.
CBD interacts with CB2 receptors, which are generally located inside immune cells.
By activating these receptors, CBD is able to evoke a wide variety of immune responses.
One of these responses is to fight inflammation.
Conditions like arthritis, MS, irritable bowel disease, and many others, are characterized by chronic inflammation.
In some cases, this inflammation can be caused by a malfunctioning of the immune system, causing it to attack healthy cells.
By helping lower inflammation, CBD can help reduce pain and other symptoms of conditions like IBD, arthritis, and more.
4. CBD Reduces Anxiety and Stress
It’s important to note that CBD doesn’t just help deal with physical symptoms.
In fact, many studies have shown that CBD can help manage the symptoms of a variety of mental conditions, including anxiety.
Much like humans, pets can also suffer from anxiety, stress or even specific phobias.
And while the exact source of anxiety may differ in pets, it can cause stress and specific physical reactions just like in humans.
Some common forms of anxiety affecting dogs include separation anxiety, noise anxiety, travel anxiety, and even specific phobias.
In humans, anxiety and stress might cause us to bite our nails, pace around, or become a little shaky.
In dogs, anxiety can cause similar repetitive behaviour.
Some common symptoms of anxiety in dogs include:
Chewing (furniture, shoes, rubbish, etc)
Urinating and defecating (usually inside the house or crate)
CBD has been shown to help reduce feelings of anxiety and thereby reduce these symptoms.
How it does so, however, isn’t completely clear.
Typical anxiety medications tend to target a type of seratonin receptor in the body known as 5-HT1A.
By targetting these receptors, anti anxiety medications can help temporarily boost seratonin levels in the brain.
This can then lead to improvements in mood and help temporarily reduce feelings of anxiety or fear.
Research suggests that CBD might work in a similar way, also temporarily increasing seratonin levels in the brain.
In doing so, the compound can have anti anxiety and anti depressant effects, while also helping reduce stress.
5. CBD is an Antiemetic
Nausea and vomiting are really common symptoms.
They can be the result of a specific condition, or can also be caused by treatments or medications such as chemotherapy.
Both in humans and dogs, nausea and vomiting are serious symptoms, often leading to a decreased appetite, rapid weight loss, dehydration, fatigue, and more.
There are plenty of antiemetic medications on the market, and some of the most common given to dogs and cats include acepromazine, chlorpromazine, aminopentamide, and more.
These drugs, while often effective in controlling nausea and vomiting, can cause a wide variety of side effects, including:
Lowered seizure thresholds for animals with epilepsy
Lack of appetite
There is a strong body of evidence that shows that CBD is a successful antiemetic, controlling both nausea and vomiting while also stimulating appetite.
Interestingly, it seems to do so by stimulating 5-HT1A receptors, the same receptor which can help reduce anxiety.
By activating this receptor, CBD can significantly reduce feelings of nausea and also suppress the subsequent vomiting reflex.
Research also suggests that prolonged stimulation of the CB1 cannabinoid receptor in the brain can also help reduce nausea and vomiting.
In doing so, studies show that CBD can have powerful antiemetic effects.
In fact, some studies suggest CBD is a better antiemetic than some modern medications.
Best of all, CBD doesn’t seem to cause any of the side effects of traditional antiemetic medications. You can read more about the side effects of CBD here.
6. CBD May Slow Tumor Growth
Cancer and malicious tumors are common in pets and, in many cases, prove to be fatal.
Until now, there is no known cure for cancer, and treatment usually focuses on slowing the growth of a tumor while reducing pain and other symptoms.
The most common treatment for cancer and tumors in pets is chemotherapy.
Unfortunately, like with humans, chemotherapy can produce a wide variety of side effects, including:
Tiredness, fatigue, and lethargy
Loss of appetite
However, new research shows that cannabinoids like CBD can have unique anticancer effects, too.
In fact, a growing body of research is beginning to explore just how cannabinoids can help slow the growth and spread of cancer and even reduce the size of tumors.
For example, a 2011 study conducted at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston showed that CBD can cause programmed cell death and hence inhibit the growth of breast cancer.
Another study, published by researchers from the University of Naples Federico II, Italy, also showed that CBD can help protect against colon cancer in rats by stopping the development, growth, and spread of malignant tumors.
Research from Complutense University, Madrid, has also shown that CBD and other cannabinoids can enhance the effect of traditional chemotherapy.
Researchers suggest it does so by increasing the rate by which cancer cells absorb chemotherapy agents, while simultaneously protecting healthy cells.
There are many more studies exploring the use of CBD and other cannabinoids in treating cancer.
7. CBD Promotes Homeostasis
Homeostasis can best be described as the proper functioning of the body.
It occurs when our bodies are in balance, and ensures all our biological systems function to the best of their ability.
However, sometimes this balance gets thrown out, and that’s when disease and illness strike.
New research suggests that the endocannabinoid system plays a key role in maintaining this balance, mainly because it is involved in such a wide variety of bodily processes.
Hence, researchers suggest that, by stimulating the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoids like CBD can help promote homeostasis in the body.
This is why many pet owners choose to use CBD not only as a medicine to treat a specific illness, but also as a regular supplement to promote the overall health and wellbeing of their pet.
If hemp and marijuana both come from cannabis plants, how is hemp safe?
Hemp and marijuana are two separate varieties of cannabis plants that originated out of different continents. Hemp is technically called Cannabis sativa and originates from Europe. This variety has extremely low levels of THC — tetrahydrocannabinol which is the sole psychoactive chemical in marijuana varieties that produces the high.
Hemp’s natural THC levels are safe as is, but with safe and common breeding & farming practices, hemp’s THC content can be lowered to non-exist levels (0.3% or less). This gives it the legal definition “industrial hemp” which can be legally purchased and used in all 50 states, as well as in most of the world. Think of hemp and marijuana in the same way you think of grape juice and wine.
What is cannabidiol (CBD)?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 110 cannabinoid extracts from the hemp plant that is non-psychoactive; meaning, it cannot produce a “high.” It is a natural, plant-based compound that is non-toxic.
Do you test your products for quality and safety?
Yes. CBD Care 4 Pets prides itself in having the highest standards for quality, purity and potency. CBD Care 4 Pets is third party tested for: Cannabinoid Profiling, Pesticide Testing, Microbiological Screening, Terpene Analysis and Residual Solvent Testing and THC Content.
Where do you source your CBD oil from?
Our CBD oil is made with organically grown hemp from Colorado and is 100% free of any synthetic or artificial ingredients. Our Farms are registered with the Department of Agriculture of Colorado.
Will CBD make my pet feel “high?”
No. Your pet will not experience a “high” feeling from ingesting CBD oil. Unlike marijuana, hemp contains extremely low to zero levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound in marijuana responsible for a “high” feeling. CBD Care 4 Pets is non-addictive, non-toxic and non-psychoactive. To ensure the highest standard, CBD Care 4 Pets is 100% THC and certified by 3rd party labs. Our products contain 0% THC.
What happens if my pet takes more than the recommended dosage?
You have absolutely nothing to worry about! There are zero recorded incidences of overdosing on CBD products, yet we still highly recommend you adhere to the suggested dose for your pet according to their weight.
Is CBD Care 4 Pets safe for both dogs, cats and horses?
Yes. CBD can be safely used for both canines, felines and Equines.
Can I use CBD for other animals besides dogs, cats and horses?
Yes, but we recommend that you exert caution and use a small serving to begin with.
Are there any negative side effects?
CBD is safe, non-psychotropic and has no adverse side effects for your furry pets.
What’s the difference between Industrial Hemp and Marijuana?
CBD oil from hemp is not the same as the oil that is extracted from marijuana. The main difference between the two is that CBD oil from marijuana can contain varying amounts of THC. The hemp oil produced from industrial hemp is naturally high in CBD and contains zero traces of THC which makes it safe and non-psychoactive.
What is CO2 extraction?
CBD Care 4 Pets uses a chemical-free CO2 extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phytochemicals (such as CBD) from a plant. Our process is free of harsh chemical solvents to extract our CBD oil. CO2 extraction is environmentally friendly and non-toxic. It is also considered the most expensive and safest plant extraction method in the world.
Do you offer a return policy?
Yes. Your satisfaction is our top priority, which is why your order is backed by a 90-day money-back guarantee.
Does it contain pesticides?
Our products are 100% free of pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. We’re extremely careful and source only from 100% organic Colorado farms. And just to make sure pesticides have never come in contact, we routinely have our hemp tested by a third-party for potency and the presence of any toxins/pesticides. You can see the results on the certificate of analysis found on our website.
Key Things to Watch Out for When Purchasing CBD Oil for Your Pet
We mentioned above that choosing the right CBD oil for your pet can be tricky. Here are some things that you really have to watch out for when you’re purchasing CBD oil for your canine friend.
“Hemp 101” Label
As we have already explained above, you really need to be careful when reading the label. It is very rare to read “CBD Oil in product labels. Instead, you will read “hemp oil”. You should try to read some more and look for other terms like “phytochemical-rich” or PCR and “full spectrum hemp extract” as these will indicate that the extracts are derived from whole Cannabis sativa L plants. You may also need to check the ingredient list. If it has both hemp seed oil and hemp oil, do take note of the ‘hemp oil’ part as this is the CBD oil in that particular product.
Source of Hemp Extracts
The source of the hemp extracts should always be clearly indicated in the product that you’re buying. There are certain parts of the US that are well-regarded as hemp haven. For example, Colorado is well-known for its extensive hemp farms. There are also countries that have been growing premium-quality hemp products throughout the years.
Non-GMO, All-natural Ingredients
You don’t want the COD oil you’re going to give to your dog to be laced with harmful chemicals and other substances that may undermine the effectiveness of cannabidial. As such, you should always look for guarantees that the product doesn’t use GINO ingredients and that their product is made of only natural ingredients. If there are certifications from the USDA or even the FDA, then it should be a good sign.
The two most preferred extraction methods for CBD oil are super-critical CO2 extraction and cold press. These two methods of extraction are considered to be the most appropriate and the safest when it comes to retaining as much cannabidiol from the Cannabis sativa L plant.

CBD Oil for Dogs Dosage
As you may have already noticed from our list of the best CBD oil for dogs, each product may actually come with an entirely different dosing recommendation. For starters, the dose of CBD oil is quite dependent on the type of formulation that is available. In our list we presented mostly in oil forms as drops although one is in the form of a spray. Do take note that CBD is also formulated as treats and as capsules.
For example, CBD oil drops can be as low as 2 to 4 drops or as high as 20 drops every day. Capsule preparations will typically come with 150 to 200 milligrams of CBD oil in the form of hemp extracts so your dog can actually take a capsule once or twice a day.
Another consideration is your dog’s size. Smaller dogs will definitely require smaller doses of CBD oil. Likewise, larger dogs will require substantially larger amounts of CBD oil.
However, there are veterinarians whorecommend giving an initial dose of 0.05 milligrams of CBD for every kilogram of your pet’s body weight to be given every day. This can be increased, of course, but should not exceed 1 mg per kilogram per day.
The current recommendation is to approach the dosing of CBD oil on a three-tiered method. The idea is to gradually increase the amount of CBD oil being consumed by your dog over a span of several weeks until the maximum desired levels have been reached.
Here’s an example of how a 3-tiered CBD dosing plan looks like.
• Tier 1 – 0.05 milligrams for every pound of weight to be given two times a day
• Tier 2 – 0.125 milligrams for every pound of weight to be given two times a day
• Her 3 – 0.25 milligrams for every pound of weight to be given two times a day
Putting your dog on CBD oil supplementation can be tricky. That is why we strongly recommend having a chat with your veterinarian about it so you can be guided accordingly. The trick is for you to always start with the lowest possible dosage that can guarantee a response from your dog. Give this over a week especially noting for any side effect or untoward reactions. If none develops you can increase the dose to the next level, again watching out for side effects. 00 this until you’ve reached the desired levels.
Small Dogs – Under 20lbs give ½ treat every 6-8 hours
Medium Dogs – 20 to 55lbs give 1 treat every 6-8 hours
Large Dogs – Over 55lbs give 1 to 2 treats every 6-8 hours
How long does it take to work?
Hemp Treats take approximately 40-60 minutes to enter the bloodstream and between 6-8 hours to exit. If faster relief is needed, check out CBDCARE4PETS CBD Oil — it takes approximately 20 minutes to enter the bloodstream.
1 treat equals 5 mg

The hemp we use is grown on family farms in Colorado where it is legal to do so, and is done under the regulations of the governing bodies in those counties. Because we derive our cannabidiol rich hemp oil from our own cultivators, we’ve systematically sought out the most beautiful and healthy hemp for our raw ingredients used in manufacturing. We always test for purity and potency, so even if there is a small variance, it is one that succeeded approval through our rigid quality assurance system. Hemp, because of it’s innate ability to thrive so easily doesn’t require pesticides (the aromatic terpene compounds in hemp can actually act as natural pesticides), fertilizers, or herbicides in it’s cultivation, and requires much less water than standard commercial farming. The hemp we use is grown under the same methods and standards of organic farming, and uses the safest farming practices available.
The CBD hemp oil is extracted through a high pressured CO2 extraction system. To determine the purity and the potency of every batch of CBD oil each extraction is analyzed through a High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) system, a Gas Chromoatography-Mass Spectometry (GC-MS) system, and the methods to test for aerobic organisms, yeast, fungus, E. coli, pesticides, heavy toxic metals, cannabidiol (+ other cannabinoid) potency, and terpenes. With these multiple analyses performed we can weigh the Hemp/CBD extract for making our blends knowing that the cannabidiol content is pure and consistent throughout every batch of Hemp CBD oil we make. Then once our final CBD oil products are prepared we have them further analyzed, once again, for their potency and purity by our partner based out of Colorado, where we adhere to international ISO standards and is 3rd party tested and certified.
