We offer full-spectrum CBD products, so our full terpene profile offers an aromatic character to some of our hemp products. After the initial response, dogs tend to love the taste and lick the oil directly off a shallow bowl or a clean surface. We do not recommend letting dogs lick the dropper as it can contaminate the rest of the oil once re-introduced back into the bottle. CBD is best absorbed more rapidly through the oral cavity as opposed to eating in food. However, studies have shown that dosing around mealtime contributes to a more effective absorption rate. So, if your dog is easier to give CBD in their food, it will still be highly effective on a treat or in their food. Learn more about dosing your dog with CBD on the VetCS blog.
We do not recommend using CBD products in pregnant or lactating dogs because of a lack of safety research during pregnancy.
We do not recommend giving CBD products to dogs less than six months of age. If you want to use CBD in a puppy over six months of age for anxiety or high energy, we encourage you to seek a positive reinforcement dog trainer to assist you and your puppy on your training journey. If the anxiety persists, CBD might be a great option to introduce into your dog's daily routine later.
VetCS CBD products have proven very effective for dog anxiety cases. Usually, for reactivity issues, we like to refer our clients to positive reinforcement-based dog trainers to assist with behavior modification issues as well. CBD dog therapy is a great additional tool that can be used during the training process to alleviate anxiety and help your dog focus on the training message being communicated.
We have seen many dogs with car anxiety benefit from VetCS CBD products. We encourage pet parents to give their dose about 30-45 minutes before the car ride and start with small car rides to have a positive experience at first. Try driving around the block a couple of times, then rewarding them and going home. Slowly introduce more time to each ride to build up to your ideal car ride length of time. Working with a positive reinforcement dog trainer is also a good idea to help your dog with car ride anxiety.
VetCS CBD products have had a significant impact on improving the quality of life of dogs suffering from epilepsy. Due to seizure cases all varying in frequency and severity, dosing protocols can vary based on indications. Please contact our veterinary team to build you a custom dosing schedule specific to your dog's needs.
