CBD and Pets: What You Need to Know

By now you’re probably familiar with CBD’s numerous positive effects in humans, but did you know that CBD may also benefit our furry friends?

Many of the amazing effects humans experience from CBD are also experienced by animals.

But before you rush to give your pet CBD, there are some things you should know.

Is CBD safe for pets?

This is probably the biggest question people have when it comes to giving CBD to pets.

Short answer: Yes. CBD is generally safe for pets.

Of course, there’s more to it.

Every animal is different, just as every human is different. Some pets may experience negative side effects, especially if the dose of CBD is too large. They might experience lethargy, or even serious side effects such as nausea and vomiting.

Which leads us to…

Dosing CBD for pets

In general, start with a low dose.

Monitor your pet’s health and behavior closely for a few days.

If you’re not seeing your desired results, up the dosage, either by raising the initial dose or by administering a second dose during the day.

Keep in mind your pet’s weight. Obviously, a one pound guinea pig is going to require a different dosage compared to a 150 pound dog. Speak with a veterinarian to determine the best dosage for your pet.

The goal is to start low and work your way up until you see results.

In the event of an overdose, your pet may exhibit side effects such as nausea and vomiting. You should take your pet to a veterinarian if you suspect an overdose has occurred.

Is CBD safe for all animals?

Unfortunately, we don’t have a definitive answer. Few scientific studies have been done regarding CBD’s efficacy and safety in animals.

However, we do know that every animal with a backbone (known as chordates) has an endocannabinoid system.

Animals with backbones, or members of the Kingdom of Chordata, include mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, and reptiles — basically any animal you would keep as a pet.

The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, helps regulate a large number of functions, including mood, memory, appetite, metabolism, and sleep.

CBD interacts with the ECS to help maintain a proper balance of health and wellness.

Based on what we know about CBD’s interaction with the ECS, it seems that CBD should be safe for most animals, but there isn’t enough research to draw an absolute conclusion.

Right now, CBD is most commonly given to dogs and cats, but several other pet owners are starting to turn to CBD to treat pets like rabbits and guinea pigs.

If you are not sure if CBD will be safe for your pet, speak with a veterinarian. Remember, every animal is different, just as every human is different.
