What to Give Your Dog for Pain Relief

If you’ve noticed unexplainable behavioral changes in your dog, it may be a sign that they are in pain due to an injury, disease, or infection. Another possibility is the onset of aging.

Apart from a few exceptions, dogs shouldn’t be given human medications for pain relief. Moreover, while there are dog-specific pain relief medications available, guessing what might be causing pain and what medicine to give them yourself is perhaps one of the most harmful things you can do to a pet. Contacting your vet is a wise first step.

CBD Oil

Hemp-derived CBD oil has a calming effect on dogs experiencing chronic pain and ailments related to old age.

It has anti-inflammatory properties and promotes balance in the body. It can increase comfort and improve activity in dogs diagnosed with OA (osteoarthritis).

CBD oil is a liquid that’s derived from the cannabis/ industrial hemp plant containing less than 0.3% THC. This plant also contains terpenes, and 85 types of cannabinoids, CBD being the most prevalent.

CBD oil can be used to treat seizures, anxiety, stress, arthritis and  pain in dogs.  It is known to produce small side effects in some dogs such as upset stomach or sleepiness. It does not cause damage to the dog’s liver, kidneys, or gastrointestinal tract.
