Gizmo, what's the hype around CBD? ~ Emma

Greetings Emma! There are many brands out there to choose from and not many veterinarians will discuss CBD yet since the California Veterinary Medical Board, has not yet allowed vets to prescribe CBD products. If you’re considering giving CBD to your dog, still speak with your vet, and you may want to also speak with a veterinarian who has knowledge of CBD. Either way, we think it won't hurt to ask your vet about the benefits of a treatment plan you're interested in trying.

A more recent fave of mine is a company called... Dope Dog!


My friends at Paws of L.A. Rescue have seen the benefits of Dope Dog oils and treats with their rescue dogs, most recently with their tiny chihuahuas, Bruno and Miley. Bruno had tons of stress and anxiety even when leaving the shelter and adjusting to his foster home. While gently easing him on Dope Dog oils daily, his fosters noticed a huge sigh of relief slowly coming over this little guy. Miley had a lot of anxiety when meeting new dogs or introduced to new spaced. Both Bruno and Miley were much calmer during positive reinforcement training and not on high alert all of the time while taking Dope Dog CBD oils and/or treats.

Dogs are responsive to CBD as they have the highest concentration of cannabinoid receptors in their brain and bodies compared to other animals, even humans.

Dope Dog’s CBD products are effective in bringing balance to pets suffering from a variety of ailments including separation anxiety, arthritis, inflammation, pain, mobility issues, cancer, end-of-life discomfort, epilepsy, and more.

Dope Dog takes pride in creating products with quality human-grade ingredients, including lab-tested CBD, derived from US-grown hemp.

"Co Founders, Michael and Erin created Dope Dog because of the issues their own dogs faced. With no holistic products on the market to help James' post-surgery joint pain or Zoey's back discomfort, they knew they needed to bring a quality wellness product line for dogs to life. After extensive research, they created a CBD product line that dogs love.”

Psst: Although Gizmo is very smart, and has many areas of first-hand expertise, it is best to get the final word on medical or legal related issues from your favorite vet or lawyer.
