CBD for Dogs
Dogs, man’s best friends, are the most commonly owned pets in the world. There’s always a very deep connection between dogs and their owners. Dogs and pets are considered part of the family and we tend to get worried when any of the family members are feeling uncomfortable. Just like you, dogs have emotions. Yes, they even get stressed also. Relieving our pet dogs from the stress with CUR CBD products is what we are going to consider in this piece.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC) Dogs get stressed in the following situations:
- Aging takes a huge toll on their memory. Dogs get confused and the memory begins to fail as they age.
- Separation from owners.
- Dogs are naturally quite fearful. Loud noises, new environments, a large group of people, or large and strange objects can make dogs afraid and trigger their fight-or-flight response.
The records have it that when some dogs become stressed they run away and sometimes never return home. The day with the biggest numbers is the 4th of July. Yeah, our great Independence Day holds the record of the day that most dogs get missing.
Why? The fireworks! The fireworks scare them a lot and they get very stressed. Dogs react to stress in different ways. According to the AKC, here are the most common ways that Dogs respond to stress:
- Peeing or pooping in the house despite being trained not to.
- Repetitive behaviors
- Sudden aggression with continuous barking
- Continuous Pacing or Restlessness
- Excessive Panting
- Destruction of objects in the home
- Running out of the neighborhood.
How to Help Dogs Get Relieved from Stress Using CBD Products
90% of the time, the spike in the stress level of dogs is caused by anxiety. And there are recommended actions to calm them down, as follows:
- Keeping dogs away from loud noises.

- Give dogs treats that contain medications for anxiety.
These are steps that you can easily take and adapt for your dog. At CUR, we also care about your dog’s welfare and we can help you bring the best anxiety relief for your dog.
You are probably wondering how the controversial CBD will affect your pet dogs. CBD has been scientifically proven to treat cases like anxiety in humans, and so can it for dogs, there has been a lot of testimonies from customers that we have recommended using CBD to calm their dog down during the 4th of July fireworks or any stressful events for dogs.
One of our several CBD products is the CUR CBD oil drop for pets. Like humans, dogs and cats also have Endocannabinoid System which reacts with CBD and we have dug deeper to extract pet-specific cannabidiol to make the CBD oil for pets. CUR CBD oil for pets is flavorless and THC-free, so it will never make them psychoactive.
How to give your dog CBD?
We care about your pets so much and that’s why we have made it so easy to use by putting dropping oil into their food or directly into their mouth.
Are the ingredients safe?
Yes, 100% safe because it only contains 2 ingredients: Olive oil and Hemp-Derived Crystalline Cannabidiol. Moreover, all of our products are tested by a third-party laboratory for potency and purity.
What is the appropriate dosage for your dog?
If you’re planning on using CBD oil for medicinal purposes, e.g., to treat arthritis pain or ease seizures, here’s how to calculate a safe and effective dosage for your pet. First, you need to calculate approximately how many milligrams (mg) of CBD your dog should have based on his weight. A safe rule of thumb is 0.2mg of CBD per pound. So, if your dog weighs 25 pounds, you’ll give him 5mg of CBD.
Then, you need to calculate how much oil you should give your dog based on how many milligrams (mg) of CBD is in each milliliter (ml) of oil. This will depend on the formula strength you’re using.
Here are some common formula strengths and how much CBD is in each:
- 250mg formula= 8mg of CBD per ml of oil
- 300mg formula=10mg of CBD per ml of oil
- 600mg formula=20mg of CBD per ml of oil
Although, you may not require this higher dosage for milder purposes and general well-being. You need not worry about the complexity of these calculations when you purchase your CBD oil from CUR. Our customer service will help you do all these calculations and recommend an adequate number of drops for whatever purpose your dog might need it for.
Is CBD legal for dogs?
Many regulations have been put in place for our furry friends to control the production, distribution, and sales of Hemp-CBD pet products. The most general and basic rule is that the product must not contain more than 0.3 percent of total THC content and they must be tested for microbiological contaminations and should be limited to dogs and cats. As said above, we have considered these, and that is why we have made the Pet CBD oil drops THC-free and are always tested by a third-party laboratory for total purity. So, with CUR CBD oil drops for pets, you are not breaking the law!
