Getting Started With CBD Oil For Dogs

Over the past 20,000 years the relationship between dogs and humans has evolved from a friendly partnership, to companionship, to dogs being man’s best friend. Dogs and humans have continued to grow closer and for many people dogs have become members of the family. When the family dog gets ill or starts to show signs of not feeling well, dog owners are searching for healthy and natural tools to give our dogs the comfort and relief they need. CBD oil for dogs can be beneficial for many health situations including aging and overall wellness, anxiety and phobias, digestion and nausea, epilepsy and seizures, joints and mobility, pain and inflammation, skin and allergies, and supports homeostasis to ensure optimal metabolic functions, nutrient transport, energy storage and modulate insulin sensitivity.

Just like all other mammals, dogs have an endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a highly complex chemical pathway that enables communication between the brain and the body. This system maintains equilibrium within the body and manages critical functions like appetite, digestion, metabolism, stress response, sleep, mood, pain, immune function, and movement. CBD supplementation assists in bringing the entire body back into balance utilizing the endocannabinoid system. When your dog is facing challenges with pain or illness working with the endocannabinoid system can be an intelligent place to target for relief.

Just like attentive pet owners are making sure their dog has the proper nutritious food and plenty of exercise, making sure to source the highest quality CBD oil for dogs is an important factor in getting the results you are looking for. Miracles of Health implements the same stringent procedures in the creation of our CBD oil for dogs as we do for all of our products. On all our pet products you will find an accurate quantity of CBD per dose, a best buy date to ensure safety and 100% organic list of ingredients. Additionally, all Miracles of Health full spectrum CBD products are tested to be at or below .3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. Tetrahydrocannabinol is the component of the cannabis plant that is responsible for the feeling of being high, being at or below .3% THC is a miniscule amount so there is no fear about your furry friend feeling high.

When shopping for CBD oil for dogs, pay attention to the labeling and make sure you can locate CBD per dose, a best by date, and a lot number (for quality control). Select products with quality ingredients: No corn syrup, trans fats, GMOs, artificial additives, thinning agents or preservatives. CBD-rich products should be lab tested for consistency and verified as being free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants. It is best to avoid products extracted with toxic solvents like BHO, propane, hexane or other hydrocarbons. Miracles of Health’s Pet’s Miracle Choice CBD oil is 100% organic and has been extracted organically using NES Vapor Distillation solvent-free technology. This method concentrates the hemp using heat rather than hydrocarbon solvents to ensure there is no possibility of residual solvents in our products.

The dosage of CBD oil for dogs largely depends on the body weight of the canine and the symptoms you are looking to ease. For dogs under 25 pounds, the recommended starting dosage begins at 5 milligrams. For dogs weighing 25 to 50 pounds, it is recommended to start at 10 milligrams. For dogs weighing 50 to 75 pounds, it is recommended to start at 15 milligrams. For dogs weighing over 75 pounds, it is recommended to start at 20 milligrams. Based on the needs of your dog, the serving frequency is one to two times per day or as needed. Work with your dog’s veterinarian if your dog is prescribed any medications to make sure dog CBD is appropriate to add into your dog’s daily regimen.

Miracles of Health recommends when starting your dog on a CBD oil regimen, start by twice a day for the first three to four days to build it up in your pet’s system. After those first three to four days of twice a day dosages, you should then increase or decrease the amount of CBD depending on if you and your pet are seeing the results you are looking for. For dogs and humans, CBD starts working within a few minutes to a few hours depending on the dosage and symptoms. Generally, a proper dose of CBD oil for dogs will start working effectively within twenty to thirty minutes and can be identified as a subtle calming effect for your dog.

One of the major benefits of using CBD oil as a naturally occurring remedy for your dog is that it has a very robust safety profile. Studies have shown that doses of 700 milligrams per day for 6 weeks did not show any overt toxicity in humans, suggesting that it can be used for prolonged treatment. CBD has no known adverse side effects, but an excessive amount of CBD could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose. There is not a need to use this type of dosage for your dog because in cannabis therapy the proper dosage is the most important thing.

Most dog owners have had experience with their dog spitting out medication and not being happy about having to take a pill, when administering CBD oil for dogs it’s critically important that your dog ingest the entirety of the dosage. The best way to administer CBD for a dog is to mix the CBD oil into their food, onto a treat, or directly into the dog’s mouth. After starting your dog on a pet CBD oil regimen, it’s important to keep a close eye on your dog to see how they are responding to the amount of CBD.
