• Is cbd oil safe for dogs? I found a med that combined cbd with glucosamine, msm and salmon oil that I would like to start my 7 and 9 year old dogs on. The 9 year old has difficulty moving on some days and our 7 year old would benefit from the preventative aspect.

    Hi Lynn,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. They know your pet and can give you the best advice on this. Unfortunately there are not many studies that show a recommended dosage or even if it helps pets. There can also be a very wide variety of concentrations and recommended dosages. Your vet can talk to you more about the potential benefits and risks of the CBD oil. If this is not the best option they can work with you to find other alternatives to help your pets.
