This is an anxious time for humans and pets alike. Dogs, in particular, are highly attuned to their owner’s emotions, and can pick up on our distress when we’re watching too much news or having a stressful work-from-home day.
It makes sense, then, that CBD oil for dogs is making headway as a popular method to ease canine anxiety. And the great thing is, the benefits of CBD oil go far beyond just helping pets chill out. It’s also great for their immune systems, and supports healthy bone and joint function, as well as digestion and heart health. PetMD says CBD oil “seems to be incredibly safe” for dogs (and cats, too!), so you can dose your furry friend without worry.
Honest Paws CBD oil for dogs ($33.96, Honest Paws) is made by pet-lovers who want the best for their furry friends. It comes in a tincture that’s easy to add to your dog’s food, or can be administered directly into the mouth. The company also makes CBD-infused dog treats (Calm Bites, $21.21) and peanut butter ($25.46), if that’s more up your dog’s alley.
The folks at Honest Paws say that the dose needed for each pet will vary, but they recommend starting with .25 mg of CBD oil per pound of body weight and adjusting upward slowly as needed.
Worried your dog will get “high” from CBD oil? Rest easy. CBD oil is made from the hemp plant, which has a very small percentage of the chemical THC, which has a psychoactive effect. In other words, CBD oil won’t make your pet (or you!) feel anything except relaxed.
Over five hundred rave reviews from satisfied dog-owners report tales of pets who are happier, calmer, and healthier after using CBD oil.
“My Goldendoodle Copper has major separation anxiety and I’ve tried everything,” wrote Melissa. “Then I read about CBD for dogs. The calming aid treats and purity oil worked like a charm! He’s not destructive anymore when I’m gone and [he’s] much calmer. So glad I ordered these!”
Steve wrote, “I tried Honest Paws CBD Oil with my 12-year-old Bearded Collie. After a few days I noticed her having more energy and a springier bounce. As an added bonus, she loves the stuff and comes back for more after her dosage.”
And Rebecca reported, “My baby girl has been on meds since she was a puppy because of storms. This makes me feel better that I’m not having to up her pills to help her deal with the storms!”
A 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee means you have nothing to lose by trying Honest Paws — and your four-legged best friend has everything to gain. Couldn’t we all use something to keep us calm these days?
