Although more and more pet owners are reporting the accidental consumption of cannabis by their animals, cannabis products for domesticated pets like cats, dogs, and horses are beginning to crop up on shelves across the country.
Companies are manufacturing products that contain cannabidiol, or CBD, a cannabinoid found in both cannabis plants and hemp products. The claims surrounding these pet-oriented cannabis goods are that CBD can supposedly help to reduce stress, anxiety, mitigate pain, and even reduce seizures in epileptic pets.
Pet owners are now offered a wide range of treats, oils, chews, and topicals that have the potential to help improve the lives of their pets. Before administering a cannabis product to your pet, check with your veterinarian to prevent interactions with medications.
