Hi, I was looking into CBD Oil for my Senior dog and was wondering will it help with cataracts or glaucoma and whether it would help prevent illness or disease. I know CBD Oil use for dogs is still relatively new but is there anyone that has used it for their dog for a while now with good results or is there anyone that experienced negative/bad results? also what brands and dosage do you give to your dog or what breed of dog. I really want to make a decision that is wise for my senior dog and to prolong his life but on wanting to believe there is a God, I really hope that God would let my dog be with me for many more years. Thanks for any replies.

I know how you feel and I've been there. I did use CBD oil for one of my pets when he had cancer and this brand was helpful, i suppose: CBD Fx


Hope this helps and wish you the best. I know first hand we can prolong the life our pets with great nutrition, home cooked meals, healthy life style and high quality supplements.

Best,
Asli

Hello:
I am a long time lurker, but your post made me decide to join. I hope that the following will be helpful and of interest.
Plz forgive the long winded post, but there is a lot to tell.

I am a resident of Nevada USA, where pretty much anything cannabis can be legally purchased (by those over 18 yrs old or with a legal guardian's consent) in a licensed dispensary. All products sold must be licensed by Nevada, and the quality (no pesticides etc) attested to by a state lab (note..there have been a few problems with the labs). We used to be able to buy pet specific CBD products, but apparently the dispensarys were "persuaded" to eliminate the pet lines by the FDA and certain state authorities.

I do not believe in pet specific CBD products, since they are usually 2-3 times the price of human grade dispensary CBD, which has to be of the highest quality anyway. It is VITAL that the CBD is pure; not purchased from dubious sources (like gas stations believe it or not, or head shops)
MOST IMPORTANT is that there is little to no THC in the mixture(<.3%) for your dogs!!!!

Unfortunately CBD has been promoted to unrealistic proportions. I have taken CBD myself before giving it to my now departed senior friend. For me it did nothing..but for my 14 yr old girl..it worked wonders for 6 months of additional happy life. She became puppy like again and started demanding and enjoying her food again. Her mini seizures had all but stopped for that wonderful 6 months. She had returned to her job..me.
Alas there is no cure for old age,:cry:, and I made a promise to both of us that she would never suffer. She was a rescued Border Collie that had become my heart dog. (had her from 5 -14.5 yrs of age.)

There are many anecdotal stories about miracle cures using CBD...I don't go for that either, since it's become hard to separate fact from fiction..There is a lot of money involved here. From what I have learned, CBD can help some dogs (and some people) with certain conditions..but not all.

Vets in my state are not permitted to even discuss CBD. I was able to get around this once by asking my long time vet if CBD would hurt my dog. Her answer was a resounding NO! End of discussion..LOL
My girl was so old and getting feeble and unhappy, that I had actually made the final appointment, only to happily cancel it a week later after initially noticing signs of improvment that had begun.

Herin lies the rub..Vets are not permitted to research or even speak about anything CBD related. so any possible positive (or negative) events go undiscovered and unreported.
I am somewhat lucky here and already had a full working knowledge of Cannabis (the full spectrum CBD oil that I gave my dog was human grade cannabis sativa derived with <3% THC.) I am legally able to grow my own meds as a MMJ card holder under Nevada Statutes (NRS).
Dogs do not do well with THC since they have many more THC receptors then we do. They can OD on it. It is not a pretty sight and can be downright dangerous.

I think that your best approach might be to reachout to others that you might know. It is IMPERATIVE to follow any and all laws withing the jurisdiction in which you reside.

You can also google mail order CBD firms and listen to their sales pitch. If it sounds to be too good....you know the rest. You will find consistancies and inconsistancies, as well as a wide variety of prices between everything..human and pet products. LOTS OF RESEARCH IS REQUIRED.

The product that I used for my dog, was from a dispensary, with a guaranteed analysis by the state. It was very resonable at the time and was grown and produced by that particular dispensary. ($20 usd for 30ml with my MMJ discount). Alas it is no more, and seems to have been abandoned in favor of CBD from 3rd party liscensed sources at 3x the price. (note: from seed to harvest and final product;everything licensed is tracked by the state)

Finally, I used the human weight scale on the bottle to dose her. As with anything cannabis..less is more, so start slowly. You can always give more later if needed. I saw results in 2 weeks or so with her, but obviously results will vary. (or not even be apparent). After 3 weeks..she was a new dog!

disclaimers.
I am a huge proponent.
I legally grow and use the meds myself. Thankfully, well into my senior yrs; I don't take anything except an occasional asprin. I was able to ditch the nasty pain medicine (10 yrs of perscriptions) after a month of my own treatment, with the approval of my doctor. Side benefit is that once again..I can sleep!

I have become very anti FDA regarding their classification of cannabis as having no medicinal value
(class 1, like heroin) Industrial hemp is now legally farmed.
Actually the HHS and FDA own a patent on certain medical uses for cannabinoids. My position has been amplified by my own successes, both personal and with my now departed dog. (I have 3 other dogs..7 (Mini Aussie), 2.5 (Border Collie/Choc. Lab cross), and 1.5 yr old Golden Retriever :)).
I can discuss CBD/THC with my own doctor, but not with my vet. My doctor has been astonished, but that's a different story)

Here's the HHS/FDA US patent number: 6,630,507 The filing date was 2001; granted 2003, and the assignee is: "The United States of America as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services (Washington, DC)" <from the patent>

My brother had a lump noticed on a CAT scan, that his doctors told him was probably lung cancer. Six months of CBD oil nightly, with no THC, and the lump is gone.

I'm not suggesting that it's a cure for cancer here! Just anecdotal suggestion that CBD may have healing powers that are not yet understood due to a severe lack of funding for studies!

On another note, for dogs a cheaper and apparently equally effective anxiety treatment for my friend's hound dog is Endurapet Plus. It's less than half the cost, and gave his dog equal results in terms of resolving his dog's anxiety. It's also an all-natural herbal supplement with no known side effects.

Just for comparison, Human Grade CBD oil from reputable online sources is very similar in cost (from a quick glance at their site). I was paying $18 for an ounce (30ml) of full spectrum cbd oil in a local dispensary (with mmj 10% discount) for my elderly dog. Last time that I checked, that product is gone and the replacement is $60 now. That is what "hype" will do to prices as we have tourists that will pay the price. If I needed it again for one of my dogs, I would go here (recommended by a friend)


This was the dispensary product. It was used for an elderly dog that was having seizures and other problems. it made a new dog out of her for 6 months.

Plz note that the moderators were made aware that my intentions regarding these products were not spam, in prior posts regarding CBD.

Thanks for the info. I am still skeptical and when I feel it is desperately needed I'll do further research however I am giving my dog raw prepared food which I stopped giving chicken because I believe chicken started to create problems. I hope my dog has many years left with me and always stay healthy. Happy holidays to you and a happy new year. Stay healthy and safe!

Sorry I'm late in replying. Thanks for the info and I'm still unsure of it. I'll refer back to your post and research further when I feel I am desperate. As for now, I hope my dog stays healthy and happy and has many years left with me. Happy holidays and stay safe and healthy!

CBD oil can relieve pain and increase activity in dogs with arthritis. My friend's dog had arthritis and the CBD oil helped a lot. I've been giving my dog CBD oil for epilepsy for a while. After starting using CBD oil, my dog's epileptic seizures became less aggressive and rarely manifested. Naturally, this made me very happy.
As for the brand of CBD oil, then everyone has their preferences. There are reviews on the use of CBD oil on dogs and brands of CBD on https://moderndogmagazine.com/articles/best-cbd-oil-dogs/132226. You can find the necessary information there. By the way, I used CBD oil for insomnia for a while, the effect was excellent.

I use CBD myself, but I don't have a dog, so I can't recommend you a certain CBD brand where to get high-quality products.
All I want to tell you is that you can't give your dog the same CBD oil you use, as there is CBD only for pets.
My doctor recommended taking CBD three years ago, and since then, I use it whenever I feel pain, headache, or too tired.
By the way, CBD is incredibly useful when it comes to stress and fatigue release.

Usually, I buy marijuana products from the online store dailymarijuana.co, so if you also, would like to use marijuana products, then you know where to buy high-quality products.
That is simply NOT true!
There is no "special" CBD that you give you a dog. You just use their weight and milligrams per lb/kg for dosing. What is important is that there is LESS than .3% THC in whatever you choose and that the CBD comes from a good, legit source..like a licensed dispensary.

I grow and use Cannabis myself and also teach those interested in learning. Any company claiming that they have "special" pet CBD is not telling the truth. CBD is fast becoming the snake oil of the century with bogus claims galore. (obviously that riles me up)

With that said, many people and pets benefit from using CBD, but I am not one of them. (I need and use THC strains for what ails me and get great sleep too) My since departed 14.5 yr old Border Collie got 6 additional months of quality and seizure free life, after I began treating her with human grade CBD; which is tested and licensed by the State of Nevada. I bought hers from a legal dispensary since I would have needed expensive testing equipment to test what I grew to make sure that there was little to no THC in the mixture. I rarely grow a CBD plant but do grow many varieties of Indica and Sativa Cannabis.

I gave her this which is a human product and dosed her using the human weight scale on the bottle. This was $20 usd for 30 ml, as compared to the "special pet" CBD that sells for 3-4x the price. The dispensary(s) in Reno, Nevada were set upon by our illustrious FDA to stop selling "special" CBD products.

Actually, you can give a pet the very same CBD oil that you take yourself. It's the exact same same thing, which you can tell by reading the label, and if it is labelled "for dogs" it simply costs more. The only pertinent thing to note is what the concentration of it is, and dose accordingly. You need to research how many mg. of CBD a dog the size of your dog should take, and go by that.
