Helping Dogs with Arthritis Using CBD Oil

Dogs Can Develop Arthritis?

Arthritis is a condition not even dogs can escape. In most cases, arthritis is most commonly found in senior dogs, but younger dogs could experience arthritis dependent upon genetics, injuries, etc.

Unfortunately, you may not even know your dog is in pain until the pain becomes too much for him to handle. Dogs tend to hide their pain as a survival instinct (survival of the fittest). 

As our dogs gets older, her cartilage (cartilage is like a shock absorber for the body) on the surface of their joints becomes more and more thin (and sometimes goes away completely). This results in inflammation and excessive fluid in her joints.

Do Veterinarians Recommend CBD Oil for Arthritis in Dogs?

Your traditional family veterinarian may or may not recommend CBD for arthritis. but many alternative veterinarians are highly recommending CBD oil. We do recommend you speak with an alternative veterinarian if you are unsure about CBD oil for your dog and your family veterinarian states he/she is not competent in this area of holistic medicine (Note: Alternative veterinarians specialize in alternative remedies; your family veterinarian often specializes in traditional veterinary medicine. Each veterinarian is equally important). 

How Fast Does CBD Oil Work?

As with many natural remedies, it’s not likely you’ll notice the effects immediately upon intake. That's one of the reasons many prefer traditional medicine; it's often instant, but natural remedies are generally healthier and better long-term for your dog.

You may not notice a difference in inflammation, for example, for at least a few days. But, unlike prescription medication, high-quality CBD oil is less likely to carry those heavy side effects prescription medication does (and very rarely has any side effects at all when taken correctly).

What Dosage is Necessary for My Dog?

Providing the correct dose of CBD oil to your dog with arthritis is important. The exact dose for your unique dog will depend on their size, their breed, and the severity of their condition.
