Is treating dogs with CBD safe?
Pet owners and veterinarians across North America are reaching for CBD oil and other CBD products as alternative treatments for dogs. It is becoming a frequently used medication to treat symptoms of seizures, cancer, arthritis, and anxiety amongst pups. One of the main hesitations that people have against this is the fear that their friends may accidentally get high. Dr. Gary Richer, owner and director of Montclair Veterinary Hospital in Oakland, California says that there is nothing to be afraid of, so long as the CBD is dosed properly. Dr. Tim Sh, CEO of VETCBD says that if CBD is dosed properly, there can be no life-threatening side effects. He adds that unlike traditional medications for canines, CBD cannot damage the kidney, liver, GI tract or leave them high.
Is it legal?
The legality of CBD in Canada is unfortunately very confusing. Two Canadian veterinary groups recently teamed up to persuade Health Canada to consider CBD as a medication to be prescribed by vets. In an interview with Global News, the groups said that they are hopeful that the “future looks pet-pot friendly”.
