Great article Angie! I really enjoyed reading it and found it very informative! Thanks so much for doing the research and sharing your knowledge! If you want yet another interesting aspect of cannabis to look into, terpenes are ALL the rage and have their own therapeutic and medicinal benefits as well! Check out the website below for more information on how the company i am now working with is using terpenes to give people more control over their highs and mood. Look forward to reading more of your articles!

Hi Lia!
It is so good to hear from you! Many of the CBD products will give the terpene amounts in the their guaranteed analysis. I have been using HempRx by Rx Vitamins for Pets. I hope you are well!

I want to thank you from a long distance for the information you have shared. I have a 5 year old intact Bulldog. After some unsuccessful traditional treatment for pancreatitis, I stopped all prescription meds and began treating him with probiotics, slippery elm, and CBD. I trust my vet, but he is terribly conventional. My boy had a serious reaction to the Deramaxx prescribed for his pain. After 24+ hours of bloody diarrhea and another trip to the see the vet, we left with antibiotics and de-wormer. His stool sample (x2) was negative for worms… I had already discontinued the… Read more »

do you treat dogs with epilepsy with cbd oil there?

Claire Primo, Veterinary Nurse for BHV

Hi Melissa,

We see great success using CBD for epilepsy!

We use the HempRx products, and you can find them on our online store here.

If you try CBD, will you keep us posted?

Warmly,

I’m confused. You say hemp is different from CBD (which I believe it is) but the product you recommend is hemp. I’m thinking of trying CBD for my 5-month old puppy for his car sickness which I think may be from anxiety.

Dr. Angie Krause, DVM

Hi Celia,

Thank you for reaching out!

CBD derives from the hemp plant (a type of cannabis). All the terminology can get confusing!

We have seen CBD be tremendously helpful for anxiety! The HempRx that we carry has 0.50mg of CBD per drop. Here is our dosing chart.

If you try CBD for your puppy, will you keep us posted on how it helps?

Warmly,
Claire

Dr. Angie,

Have you seen any results with CBD oil and helping to prevent cancer from metastasizing ? I know there is not much research but I have read articles about possible prolonging on life and improve end of life from CBD. Thanks!

Hi Alison,

Great question!

Dr. Angie just wrote an article for Animal Wellness Magazine discussing CBD for cancer! It won’t be published until June, but she discusses tons of information in the article regarding CBD for our pets with cancer. She discusses that hemp derived CBD has been shown to cause death to cancer cells, may improve the success rate of chemotherapy and may slow tumor progression.

For cancer patients, she usually recommends 0.50mg/kg of CBD twice daily, slowly increasing to 1mg/kg by day 3 of use.

I hope this information helps!

Warmly,
Claire
