Man’s Best Friend’s Best Friend: CBD for Dogs, Cats & Other Pets | Discover Marijuana
By now, you’ve heard all about cannabidiol (CBD) and its many uses for your health and wellbeing. But did you know CBD also has potential for your pets?
Talk with your veterinarian before starting your pet on any type of CBD product. It’s important to go over your plans and work out the correct dosing for your pet’s weight beforehand.
CBD has potential as a calming agent for pets. This is especially useful around the 4th of July and other holidays celebrated with fireworks.
CBD can also be used to treat pets suffering from pain or arthritis. If choosing a CBD product for your pet, we recommend working only with reputable dealers who can provide certificates of analysis for their products.
