CBD and Pets: What You Need to Know

At Nature’s Ultra, we know that when you’ve experienced the benefits of CBD, you want to share it with your loved ones. We also know that “loved ones” doesn’t just mean the people in your life. Your beloved pets may also fit into that category.

At Nature’s Ultra, we have a CBD oil specially designed for pets. Of course, like anything else you give to animals, it’s important to understand how CBD works, the benefits it offers to your pets, and any potential side effects. We’re going to cover all of that and more in this article so you know if CBD is right for your pet!

How Does CBD Work for Pets?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a cannabinoid naturally found in the hemp plant. In both humans and pets, CBD works by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors throughout the body. The ECS regulates processes in the body such as appetite, pain, mood, memory, peripheral nervous system, and more. In both humans and animals, CBD interacts with this system to help promote homeostasis, or a state of balance.

There are a few different ways that CBD is commonly administered to pets: capsules, oils, and creams. Compared to capsules and creams, CBD that is administered in oil form leads to a higher concentration in the blood, stays in the bloodstream for a longer time, and performs most consistently in different dogs. That’s great news for anyone who has purchased Nature’s Ultra Pet CBD Oil.

Benefits of CBD for Pets

Due to stigma surrounding the cannabis plant, research on the effects of CBD in humans is still picking up steam. When it comes to CBD and pets, there’s even more work to be done! But preliminary studies have suggested that CBD can help promote overall wellbeing for animals. This is because it interacts with the Endocannabinoid System, which helps the body maintain a stable internal environment. As the environment inside and outside the body changes, the Endocannabinoid System has to work to maintain a consistent state. CBD can help make that easier!

CBD Dosage for Pets

We recommend starting with one full dropper (1ml) of our of 200mg Pet CBD Oil daily. 

Our Pet CBD Oil comes in two strengths: 200 mg and 400 mg. The strength of 200 mg contains 6.67 mg of CBD in each serving, and the strength of 400 mg contains 13.33 mg of CBD in each serving. Smaller animals may experience the benefits of CBD at a smaller dosage than larger animals. We recommend starting with a lower dosage and adjusting depending on how your pet reacts! Starting low and working the dose up to the desired effect is always a good strategy with CBD. 

Are There Side Effects When Using CBD for Your Pet?

CBD is generally regarded as well-tolerated and safe in both humans and animals. However, it’s important to remember that just because CBD itself is safe for pets doesn’t mean all CBD products are fine to use. Knowing the quality and the sourcing of the ingredients is essential.

For instance, full spectrum CBD and even some improperly labeled broad spectrum CBD products may contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC can be toxic to cats and dogs, so it’s important to buy products that are tested to ensure they’re safe to use. At Nature’s Ultra, we test rigorously for purity and potency, and we’re not satisfied unless the tests show 0% THC. And because we want you to feel confident in our CBD, you can visit our product verification page here and look at the lab results for your specific batch!

While a lot of us think of our pets as part of the family, it’s important to remember that they are, in fact, a different species. (Of course, that doesn’t mean that you need to give them any less love. Go ahead and buy them that chew toy you’ve had your eye on. They deserve it!) Ingredients that may be healthy for humans could have negative effects in animals. That’s why you should be careful to use only CBD that is formulated specifically for animals!

At Nature’s Ultra, our Pet CBD Oil is a simple combination of CBD and MCT oil as a carrier oil. It contains no gluten, no fillers, no chemicals, no fragrances, and no sugars. Because it doesn’t have any other ingredients, you can rest easy knowing that you’re giving your pet pure, potent CBD without any harmful additions.

Is CBD Right for Your Pet?

Just like humans, animals are unique and have their own individual needs. It’s important to make sure CBD is right for your specific pet. Here are a few things to consider as you make your decision!

CBD is not recommended for animals that are pregnant, lactating, diabetic, or hypoglycemic. Because CBD comes from hemp, you’ll obviously want to avoid using it if your pet has a hemp allergy. Additionally, because CBD appears to be metabolized in the liver of animals, you should be cautious if your pet takes any medication that is metabolized in the liver to avoid any adverse interactions.

And finally, you should talk to your veterinarian before giving CBD oil or any other product to your pet. They will be able to assess your pet’s overall health and advise you about what is best for them. Remember, all animals are unique, so it’s all about making the right decision for their individual needs!
