Pet CBD FAQs
Rover’s Pet strives to provide the latest in pet CBD education and believes that transparency is key when it comes to advocating for your pet’s health. As more and more clinical research is conducted on this plant compound, we look forward to the emerging research surrounding this topic and how it may help our fur babies. Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:
Q: Will CBD make my pet high?
A: No, CBD is non-intoxicating. Unlike THC, it does not cause the same mind-altering effects, making it a great option for pets.
Q: What pets can take CBD?
A: CBD is compatible with any organism that has a vertebra, meaning most pets can take it. Our broad-spectrum hemp oil products are specially formulated for dogs, cats, and horses. If you’re interested in giving CBD to your pet, one of our representatives would be happy to help you with more information.
Q: Can pets overdose on CBD?
A: No, CBD does not have any risk of overdose. However, more does not mean better - While it is safe, too large of a dose may result in side effects like drowsiness or diarrhea. We always recommend starting low and slow with dosing.
Q: What are the dosage recommendations for my pet?
A: Each of our products has recommended dosage guidelines for dogs, cats, and horses. Just like people, dosage and frequency will vary based on each pet. It’s best to start with a low dose and slowly work your way up until the desired effects are noticeable. Side effects like drowsiness or diarrhea are often indicators that you’re giving too large of a dose and can be used as an additional guideline. If you have any questions about dosing, one of our representatives is happy to help!
Q: Why is CBD safe for dogs but not THC?
A: Research is still ongoing but all of the safety data on CBD supports no adverse effects on dogs and other animals. THC-free is important because, unlike humans, pets can’t tell us if they are affected by residual THC buildup.
Q: Can my pet take CBD with supplements?
A: CBD can be safely taken with other supplements like vitamins and probiotics. For natural therapeutic supplements targeting anxiety and other conditions, it’s best to speak to your vet first as combining them with CBD may cause side effects.
Q: How do I give my pet CBD?
A: Our pet CBD tinctures offer a variety of administration methods. It can be given directly to your pets, added to their food, and applied topically. Giving your pet CBD directly under the tongue is the most effective method as it enters the bloodstream directly from the sublingual glands for better bioavailability and quicker effects.
Q: Should I give my pet CBD with food?
A: CBD can be easily given to pets with food but this isn’t always necessary. For quicker effects, CBD may be given on an empty stomach. However, pets with digestive concerns or sensitive tummies often do better with CBD when combined with food. It’s best to experiment to see what works best for your pet. Please note that a slightly higher dose may be necessary when adding to food as the digestive system can diminish some of the effectiveness.
Q: What is water-soluble CBD?
A: Water-soluble or nano-encapsulated CBD is an advanced liposomal nano-emulsified form that delivers better bioavailability and quicker effects. Since animal bodies are composed of 60% to 80% water, this form of CBD enables our products to work faster and more efficiently. It also provides the benefit of more accurate dosing as standard CBD oils experience significant loss through the digestive tract.
Q: How can CBD help my pet?
A: While CBD research is ongoing, there are numerous animal studies, preliminary studies, and anecdotal accounts that support a wide scope of benefits. Please refer to our CBD Benefits for Pets page for more information.
Q: Can I give my pet human CBD?
A: It’s best to stick with CBD products formulated specifically for pets as human products often contain ingredients that aren’t pet-friendly and have a much higher cannabinoid concentration due to weight differences.
