In the case of our favourite felines, it is especially advisable to relieve stress caused by long journeys or hectic situations at home. In these cases, a small dose of CBD could act in the same way as an anxiolytic.

Benefits for other pets

For small mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters it can be used in minimal doses, after consultation with a veterinary professional, especially to determine the dosage.

For fish, birds, amphibians and reptiles there is virtually no information, and no evidence that it can be of any help to them.

Just as the same dose of CBD can affect every human being in different ways, it will be the same for your pets: not all dogs and cats react in the same way to CBD.

Finally, if you are going to use CBD in your pets, do it with certified and guaranteed products. Handmade products, produced without control, may have THCwhich may have harmful effects on dogs. And don't forget to always consult your vet.
