Personally, I am a huge believer in CBD products.
I first learned about the benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) just this past summer, and have been doing my best to learn even more since then!
Over that time, I have tested quite a few of these products myself. To my surprise, there are a lot of good brands out there!
A while ago I had read that CBD for dogs was a growing fad, but I did not ever think I would try this out myself.
I was wrong!
A couple weeks ago I started to use CBD oil with my sister’s dog Jasper, and it has made a world of difference!
There are many ways that CBD oil for pets is beneficial, but not as many brands currently making quality CBD for animals.

CBD Oil for Jasper
One of the main reasons that CBD oil for dogs is helpful is because of their separation anxiety, which is exactly why we decided to use I with Jasper.
Right now, Jasper is going through a very difficult time in his life!
Just one year ago Jasper escaped the wildfires in Tennessee, and was rescued and brought to an animal shelter in New York. Clearly, this was a huge and traumatic change in his life.
Jasper had been abandoned by his previous family, but luckily survived.
After he was brought to a shelter up in New York, my sister, Emily, rescued him and brought him to live with her in Troy, New York.
When I was home in the summer, Jasper would occasionally spend some time alone with my wife Anna and I- and you could easily tell how much he missed my sister during that time.
He has a very strong character for a dog, so you can easily see his every emotion.
He loved our house because we have a huge backyard with lots of space to run, and animalsto smell; but he always missed my sister if she was gone for even 20 minutes from him!
He clearly has some form of PTSD from the fire he was rescued from.
However, he always seemed to know that Emily was going to come back to him.
Lately though, this changed!
My sister is in the process of moving out of Troy, and his entire world has been turned upside down!
During this move, Jasper has been living with Anna and I more than ever, and my sister is only with him a couple days per week.
Separation anxiety would be the least you can put it.
During the days Jasper can range from depressed, to just completely confused.
Luckily, we have found an awesome solution!
Benefits of CBD Oil for Pets
Along with helping with separation anxiety, CBD for pets has a wide range of other benefits!
CBD oil can promote joint health in pets, especially when you are using a CBD product which uses only 100% natural hemp extract.
Another awesome benefit is that CBD oil contains nutrient-rich Omega-3 and Omega-6 antioxidants, making your pet’s skin and fur look healthier than ever!
CBD is not psychoactive for both humans and pets, which means your animal cannot develop a dependency to it. Although they may have a better and calmer mood when taking it, they will never experience a “crash” or withdrawal effects!
Compared with other medications for animals, CBD oil is extremely easy to give to them.
The CBD dosage for dogs is certainly less than it is for humans, and you can easily just drop the CBD oil on their food to have them ingest it!
You can also give them drops of CBD oil directly in to their mouth, but putting it on their food is just as effective.
Generally, the CBD dosage for dogs and other pets seems to be around 2mg to 5mg. Contrarily, the CBD dosage for humans is normally above 15mg.

CBD Oil for Dogs – Concluding Thoughts
Honestly, I could not believe how well CBD oil worked for Jasper! Since I began using CBD oil product, my main concern was how CBD oil for athletes would benefit myself and my friends, but I cannot believe how well CBD oil worked for Jasper as well!
Luckily, I had found an awesome CBD for pet’s company on my first try, which I am sure was crucial to the effectiveness of the product.
Everyone knows how difficult it is to see their pet in pain, whether it is mental or physical. By giving CBD oil to your pet, you can safely and easily help them alleviate these issues.
If you think CBD oil for your animal is a good choice, you should definitely give it a try!
If you have any concerns, talk to your vet first!
However, this is an exciting product which can have awesome benefits for your animals!
