• How do you all feel about CBD oil to treat anxiety? I have a very anxious pup.

    Hi Pam,
    I recommend that you take your pet into see a veterinarian. Anxiety is best treated by identifying the underlying cause helping the pet to learn to cope with that trigger. That can include medications as well as behavior modification therapy. Your vet can recommend the best treatment plan for your pet based on the type of anxiety present. As for CBD oil, there have not been any studies completed to show that this will work in pets. I do not recommend starting it without talking to your local vet. They can recommend the best dose for your pet if this is needed.
