Doctors On CBD, an online platform providing valuable resource for people interested in the health benefits of CBD, launched a new report covering what veterinarians are saying about using CBD for pets.

CBD interacts with the human and mammalian endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which help maintain balance in the body and keep it in a normal healthy state.

Many people use CBD for a variety of things like for epilepsy, chronic pain, anxiety and other maladies but few know it can also be used to treat similar conditions in pets.

Currently, there has been no formal study on how CBD affects pets. However, at Colorado State University, the veterinary school is running a long-term study of the effects of CBD on pets, including any therapeutic benefits.

According to Stephanie McGrath, D.V.M., a veterinarian and assistant professor of neurology, early results are encouraging with an 89% reduction in epileptic seizures for dogs treated with CBD.

In addition, a separate study from Cornell found that 2 mg per kilogram of CBD twice daily “can help increase comfort and activity” in dogs with osteoarthritis.

The Doctors On CBD report also states that any medication or supplement carries the risk of a reaction. Thus, it is always advisable to always check with the veterinarian first. Also, when giving a pet something new, it is highly recommended to start out with small amounts and then closely monitor the effects.

According to the new report, “CBD for pets is a huge trend and the right product might help your pet deal with pain or anxiety. Do your homework, verify the source and make sure you know what you’re giving your four-legged friend.”
