One of the most obvious uses of CBD has been to increase appetites and decrease anxiety in dogs. This means that it is great for pets who might have certain digestive problems, and also that it can be given to those super nervous dogs out there. With a little CBD, you’ll never need to worry that your neighbors are being bothered by your lonely pups worried barking. Instead, Fido will be mellow as can be, waiting calmly for you to get back home.


We received a bag of cbdMD dog treats along with CBD oil and other products in exchange for our honest thoughts.  What surprised me was that cbdMD offers dog treats in various strengths, so I requested 750 mg dog treats (I'm used to 200 mg).  And they worked – I saw a difference within 30 minutes.  The first time the dogs tried their new dog treats by cbdMD, I was sitting in my office, fireworks were STILL going off two weeks after the Fourth of July and Rodrigo was panting and trying to get as close to me as possible.

“The pet product market is very excited about CBD products,” said Brad Solomon, founder/partner of Prana Pets, quoted in the Pet Product News article. “Many retailers want to carry these products, but they are concerned about the legality of CBD. Everybody we speak to agrees about all the amazing benefits associated with this category. Our client testimonials are enough for us. Every client who has tried our CBD products is experiencing positive results.”
These gluten-free treats, made with chicken soup, will satisfy the pickiest of eaters with their umami taste. I have a picky dog that routinely turns down treats from strangers if they don’t smell good enough—no Milk-Bones accepted—so I’m constantly looking for the smelliest, most pungent treats to give her. Unfortunately, premium juicy meat treats tend to leave stains in my pockets. But you get the best of both worlds with these biscuits: savory taste with yuck-free packaging.
We commonly hear about dogs being more receptive to Hemp CBD than traditional medications, especially with anticonvulsant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety medications.We recommend that you always check with your veterinarian before starting, stopping, or adjusting the dosage of any prescription medication. Many drugs, especially anti-seizure medications, must be weaned off slowly or else deadly withdrawal symptoms can occur. 
Sales of CBD pet products doubled in the US from 2014 to 2016, according to MJ Freeway, a data analytics firm referenced by Polly Mosendz in a December 2016 article on Bloomberg.com. Interestingly, the article lumps CBD in the same category as THC, even questioning the ethics of “getting the dog high” (paraphrasing a quote from a senior vice president of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

One CBD treatment that surprises many pet owners is the fact that it is sometimes used to treat dogs who suffer from seizures. Products with high levels of CBD can help manage seizures brought upon by epilepsy or other genetic disorders. There have been numerous cases of cannabis helping manage, and over time reducing, the frequency of seizures in humans and animals.

The CBD dog treats that my dogs tried are $60 a bag for 30 dog treats. Wow! That's a lot of money and something that I wouldn't even THINK of spending five years ago.  I will buy a bag of these treats for Rodrigo.  Today, I look at this as a steal because the treats work, the company use quality, safe, natural ingredients, and I don't worry about long-term side effects.

Canna-pet claims to have invented the hemp-nutrition pet market, and brings more than thirty years of research into their products. Canna-pet also has a huge variety of treats and oils available, and they even have their very own “Hemp Science for Dogs” book available on their website, to help teach interested pet parents about the many benefits that hemp-based treats and supplements can have on their dog’s health.
Treatibles makes a wide variety of products, from CBD infused treats to oils and even gel caps. This company also produces its treat in a number of different flavors, and even makes grain free products so even those with especially sensitive stomachs can enjoy the benefits that CBD yields. The company also has some specific feeding instructions, recommending 1mg of oil for every 10 lbs your pup weighs.

Other CBD and related pet treats on the market include Endexx Phyto-Bites, Barkables, Auntie Dolores Kitchen Treatibles, Barkworthies Pumpkin Cannabidiol Treats and Healthy Hemp Pet Products CannaNatural. The number seems to multiply every few months, along with the offerings of pet supplements featuring CBD. Just google “CBD dog treats” to see for yourself.
Before you decide to slip your pup a sample—or even one of your edibles (hint: they can’t eat chocolate)—be warned that animals are incredibly sensitive to THC. This is due to abundant receptors in their brains, their heightened sensitivity, and their propensity for experiencing static ataxia. Like humans, dogs suffer from a variety of ailments, such as aching joints and anxiety, that could possibly benefit from treatment with cannabinoids. But because we know even less about the effects of cannabis on dogs than we do of its effects on humans, you should consult your veterinarian before proceeding further. Cannabis has the potential to cause numerous negative health effects in pets, and unlike in humans, it can even be lethal for your animal.
