Joey, I don’t know if your gf and Phoebe has went on their trip, but everything that I’ve read it takes about 2 weeks for CBD to build up in a dogs system and since your dog is a shitzu I would suggest a 1.5mg bag of treats from where ever you get them from. She is a smaller dog and there are 2 dosages I’ve seen. 1.5mg for dogs up to 45 or so and 5mg for dogs 45 +. As for the liquid I have no idea as I haven’t researched that. It sucks that no one replied to your question. I hope you were able to find the answer if they flew already. Good luck!
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 use of cannabis-based medicine will continue to develop, and what people need now is assurance that the effects of the cannabis products will not harm their beloved pets. There is much misinformation in the public sphere, and the most important thing is to get everyone to understand the promising medicinal benefits that CBD can provide to pets. Cannabis is not going away anytime soon, and pet owners should consider all sides of the issue when thinking about giving CBD products to the furry friend in their life.
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.
