Is CBD Right For Your Pet?

This is one of the things that I’ve always had questions about ever since the first time I heard about giving your pets CBD oil.  While CBD oils have a proven track record with people for relieving pain, inflammation, anxiety, and many of the major problems with cancer in humans, their is very little research into it effectiveness or safety with animals.

I know people who have used CBD for pain and inflammation cause by severe arthritis, and for the pain caused by Crones Disease for a long time.  Recently, I met someone who is using CBD for a senior female cat with extreme hip problems.  This pet parent decided to try CBD after the cat had a severe reaction to another medication commonly given to pets for this problem.  So far the results have been promising.  Because this is a subject of interest, I plan on keeping up on this very closely.

The articles below are the most informative articles I’ve found on the topic.
