CBD For Pets

At this point into the Silver Rain CBD guide, you might already be considering trying out CBD for yourself. But you might not know that CBD is also a safe and effective way to address a number of problems in pets.

That’s right, you can give CBD to your furry friends!

Just like in humans, CBD can help alleviate:

  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Stress & anxiety
  • Insomnia & sleep disorders 

CBD is completely safe for many household pets, including cats and dogs. However, there are a few things you should know before administering CBD to your pet.

Not All CBD Products are Pet Friendly

While the compound CBD is safe and often beneficial for many household pets, you should not give just any CBD products to your pet. Many CBD products have added ingredients that are safe for human consumption, but may be poisonous to animals like cats or dogs. 

Before giving CBD to your pet, make sure that all of the ingredients in the product you are using are okay for your furry friend to consume. CBD tinctures with minimal added ingredients are probably your best bet for ensuring your pet’s safety. 

Opting for a CBD product made specifically for animals is probably the safest and most effective route of treating pets with CBD. In addition to only including pet-friendly ingredients, many pet CBD products also feature fun flavors made for animals’ tastes. Getting your pet to swallow a CBD tincture might prove easier if the oil tastes like bacon. 

Talk to Your Vet

It is a good idea to consult with your veterinarian before administering CBD products to your pet. Although there shouldn’t be any dangers with giving CBD to pets, it is important to take their current health and background information into account. If your pet is currently taking any medications, a veterinarian might have advice on whether or not CBD will interfere with their current treatment.

There are currently many veterinarians in support of using CBD as a treatment for a number of issues in pets. While most studies on CBD are human-specific, veterinarians typically feel that especially amongst mammals, CBD likely shows similar results.

Understanding Your Pet’s Needs

Any pet owner knows that perhaps the most difficult part of caring for a beloved animal is not being able to verbally communicate. However, although we cannot speak with our pets to understand their sources of pain, stress, or other issues, there are a number of queues we can pick up on to help them. 

Many people who have used CBD for their pets report seeing a noticeable increase in mobility and comfort in animals that have conditions causing pain. Likewise, dog owners especially mention the benefit of CBD in soothing separation anxiety and other anxiety-related issues suffered by their dogs. 

While we cannot fully confirm a pet’s responses to treatment, picking up on their body language can help indicate if your animal is benefiting from the use of CBD.
