Keep Your Pooch Calm with CBD for Pets

No matter if it’s your dog or cat, this article is to help give you some information to help you navigate using CBD for your dogs or cats.

Endocannabinoid System

First off there’s a thing called the endocannabinoid system. It is found in human beings as well as animals like cats and dogs. 

Our brains, our dog’s brains and our cat’s brains produce cannabinoids and they attach two different cells throughout the body known as CB1 and CB2 receptors. 

It’s really important for regulating sleep, immune response and appetite. The specific receptors interact with the body producing many benefits. It can be a powerful pain reliever. 

Arthritic Pain

If you have an aging middle-aged dog or cat and he or she has some arthritic pain in what you’ve been using some traditional veterinarian anti-inflammatory.

The CBD is a really good alternative option. There are a whole array of studies showing specific benefits helping in instant arthritic pain. 

It accomplishes this in a number of ways. Most specifically it’s an anti-inflammatory. 

This is a really good option for both dogs and cats that have a really hard time processing anti-inflammatory drugs given by veterinarians. 

The other thing is that you don’t have to give a lot of it. 

Seizure Control

The second big therapeutic benefit is that it aids in seizure control. 

Approximately 1/3 of dogs that are treated for seizures they don’t respond well to conventional medication. 

However it has been studied that dogs respond quite well to CBD for seizures. 

There are some big studies at CSU and they are seeing how well epileptic dogs respond to the CBD. In some cases low doses are effective. 

Disease Prevention

The third big benefit is for disease prevention. The CBD is naturally anti-inflammatory along with having other properties such as anti-cancer, and there’s a pile of research backing all of this. 

Those specific anti-inflammatory properties prevent brain disease and other organ dysfunction. 

Animals seem to be getting high rates of cancer. There is a big correlation with inflammation and things that can decrease the level of chronic inflammation that plays such a big role in disease prevention. 

Again, CBD is an anti-inflammatory which in turn helps prevent future diseases. 


Standard Cbd oil dose is around 1 mg per 10 pounds of body weight daily. The standard amount is about 300 mg of CBD oil per bottle. 

Typically you’re looking about 20 drops for each meal. This means that two drops is going to give you 1 mg 2 mg would be  four drops to your pet per day depending on if your pet is 10-20lbs. 

This gives you an adequate sense on how to dose your pet. You can even start with half that amount if you like.

Improve the Quality of Life for your Pet

Hopefully this information has helped you decide on getting some CBD for pets. Or even for your cat. 

Any animal for that matter will benefit greatly from using CBD. Again one of the main reasons animals benefit from CBD products just like humans do is because they also have the endocannabinoid system running through their bodies.

Using CBD for your pets provides a much more comfortable lifestyle for them. Oftentimes pets have physical ailments but they go unnoticed. 

It’s not like your dog or cat could tell you that it has arthritis. Sometimes it has inside ailments that are going on but no way to find out. 

CBD products provide a prevention from those inside diseases. CBD allows your pet to live a much more comfortable lifestyle. Your pets will thank you and you will surely benefit by having them love up on you even more.
