You’ve heard how CBD dog treats could benefit your cat or dog. Maybe you want to give it to them to reduce seizures, anxiety, arthritis, inflammation, pain or one of the many other health issues that can CBD can benefit.
Perhaps you have decided to go with treats instead of oil, but you are having difficulty finding them or they are too expensive or that your pet simply doesn’t like the taste of the ones you’ve bought.
Have you thought about making your own CBD treats? It’s easy if you purchase some CBD oil for your pet. Greeley Gallery carries it! We currently have Angel Hemp CBD tincture with 2,000 mg of CBD. How much CBD your particular dog or cat needs will vary. It varies based on weight and the condition being treated. For example, for smaller cats and dogs that weigh between 7 to 20 pounds, half a dropper-full is plenty. As for our larger babies, a full dropper is required, or you may need to give them more to treat anxiety or to help control seizures than you would for general wellness.
For the homemade treats, we suggest giving your pet the CBD oil directly first, to determine how much they need in each dose. Start with the lowest recommended amount and work your way up from there. Once the desired result in achieved, you will know how many drops of oil, or how many mg of CBD, to put in each treat.
The wonderful news is, several studies on CBD have shown it has little to no side effects, and the rewards are high. Even with high doses, you are very unlikely to harm your pet if you accidentally put too much in a treat. In cases where side effects from too much did occur, the most common one was drowsiness. On very rare occasions, side effects have included excessive itchiness or mild vomiting. If your pet starts having any of these symptoms after ingesting CBD, stop giving it to them and they should return to normal. If you are concerned, be sure to talk to your vet.
How to Make Hemp CBD Treats
It’s best to stay away from making baked CBD treats unless you are experienced cooking with marijuana. Let’s look at the ways that don’t involve heat so you don’t have to worry about evaporation!
One super simple way to make your own CBD pet treats is to put drops of oil on your pets treats. We’ve done this and can tell you it doesn’t necessarily work on any ol’ treat. The trick is to get the oil to soak in. In order for this to happen, you need to pick “porous” treats. Treats that look granular or that have little holes in them work best.
One of the more popular choices for cats is Greenies Pill pockets or the Meow Mix soft white chicken treats. For dogs, Merrick power bites are porous. www.Chewy.com is a great website to shop for the best pet treats.
Just place the amount of CBD oil your pet needs on the treat, let it soak in for a minute and let your pet enjoy. That’s it! Sometimes you can see immediate results, or it could take a few doses.
