If you’re a strong proponent of CBD, you may be wondering if it’s safe to give your pup just a small dose of your CBD infused soft drink.  Fortunately, you don’t have to share your hemp drink with your pet as there is a CBD product made specifically for your pup – InTune CBD dog treats.

What Are CBD Dog Treats?
CBD pet treats are foods and snacks packed with different amounts of cannabidiol to ensure your dog gets the right CBD dosage.

There are many CBD treats in the market, and you mustn’t fall prey to marketing hype. When it comes to giving your dog the best CBD treats always ensure:

·         You buy them from a reliable producer

·         The product has a certificate of analysis and evidence of third-party testing

·         You check online reviews of the product you intend to buy

You should also check the ingredients of the CBD product. Quality treats such as InTune CBD dog treats have their ingredients clearly indicated in the pack.

The pet treat should have cannabidiol as an ingredient, and the amount of CBD indicated in milligrams. Products with high levels of CBD are likely to be more expensive compared to those with minimal amounts.  Further, hemp oils and CBD products sourced from organically grown hemp gives you the best of what nature has to offer.

You should also check if the pet treat has THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a cannabinoid derived from marijuana, which can make your pet ‘high.’ The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) warns that THC is toxic to dogs and cats.

How CBD Treats Affect Dogs
Many pet owners are a bit skeptical when it comes to giving their dogs CBD treats as they aren’t sure of how it affects their pets.  According to the American Kennel Club, there isn’t much scientific evidence when it comes to CBD effects on animals.

However, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence from pet owners suggesting that cannabidiol can help relieve the below issues in pets

·         Anxiety

·         Chronic pain

·         Joint issues

·         Inflammation

·         Hyperactivity

·         Reduced appetite

If you decide to give your dog CBD treats, you should start with low doses. You should also monitor your pet to see how they react to the treats. Possible adverse effects of high CBD dosage on dogs based on its negative impact on humans include:

·         A dry mouth evidenced by decreased saliva and thirst

·         A sharp drop in blood pressure that may make your pet light-headed

·         Drowsiness or increased sleep in your pet

Bottom-line? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved the use of CBD in pets. However, anecdotal evidence from pet owners indicates that CBD pet products are beneficial to pets. But as a pet owner, you should always be cautious of any unregulated product as it can react with your pet. To be on the safe side, buy CBD products from a reliable producer. It will help if you also introduce the CBD pet treats to your dog in small doses so you can monitor their reaction to the product.
