Does Your Sick Dog Need Cannabis Oil?
If you are wondering whether your sick dog needs cannabis oil, Cannabis Therapy may just have the answer. Does your sick dog need cannabis oil if it shows signs of pain and lethargy? We know of some dogs who were given doses of cannabis oil by their owners and seemed never to age. Everyone loves a dog as a pet which means we choose what is best for them. Would you give your dog medication with terrible side effects?
Cannabis oil has no side effects if you choose the right strain and dosage. In humans, cannabis oil has been show to successfully treat glaucoma, seizures, pain, inflammation, cancerous tumours, arthritis, anxiety, depression, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and the list goes on. With dogs, you need to be careful but can also try cannabis oil if your sick dogs needs it.
Treat Your Sick Dog with Cannabis Oil Carefully
There are two main chemical compounds in the cannabis plant, which has at least 80 different cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) cling to certain receptors in your body and brain which are part of the innate endocannabinoid system. Even dogs have an endocannabinoid system. Dogs need to take cannabis oil in easy forms if they are sick and in some countries there are even dog biscuits containing cannabinoids! Before you treat your sick dog with cannabis oil, see which kind of cannabinoid suits the illness. THC is great for inflammation but a blend of THC and CBD is better as the CBD takes away the psychotic properties of the THC (this is the substance that makes us high).
It is always difficult to know how much cannabis oil to give your sick dog but you need to ensure it works. As a guide, we suggest you start with a tiny dose of say 0.5 to 1mg. You do not want your dog to feel any side effects of the THC which will disorientate them. It can take a few hours for the cannabis oil to go work on your sick dog. If you think the dog is not responding enough, increase the dosage a little. An overdose means your dog is wobbly, spaced out, not eating or drinking and battling to stand up. Then you take your dog to the vet. Never leave your dog alone if dosing with cannabis. Use CBD strains rather than THC strains just to be on the safe side as CBD is a natural medication with NO side effects.
Methods to Give Your Dog Cannabis Oil
- Cannabis oil – put a little oil in a piece of meat or a treat you usually give your dog. Or squirt the oil into the dog’s mouth using a syringe
- Cannabis oil creams – this can be used for arthritis or for dogs not wanting to eat. It is great for skin allergies and joints. Choose a natural cream including coconut or olive oils if your dog licks himself.
- Cannabis oil tinctures – do the same as with the oil – squirt into the sick dog’s mouth with a syringe or put a few drops in his favourite snack
- Cannabis oil edibles – you can make cannabis oil butter and insert this into the dog’s food or you can buy ready-made dog biscuits containing cannabis oil in some countries. Do not give your dog human edibles containing cannabis
