In the event that you have decided to surprise your dog with a bottle of CBD oil, then I believe I can make one logical conclusion. You have already done quite a lot of research on this product, which has led to you realizing how helpful it can be for most animals, including canines. Since it is so helpful, there is absolutely no point in not giving it to your pet, is that right?
Well, that most certainly is correct, but here is the thing. A lot of people tend to make certain mistakes when it comes to using CBD oil for dogs, which further leads to them being unhappy with the effects of the product. I wouldn’t want you to experience the same thing and I am quite certain that you wouldn’t want that either. Is there, however, anything you can do in order to avoid making those mistakes and ending up unsatisfied with the end results?
Fortunately for you, there definitely is something you can do. In fact, this is actually not a difficult task at all. Basically, the only thing you need to do is get properly acquainted with those mistakes that people tend to make when giving CBD oil to their dogs and then do your best not to repeat them. Learning about them is the first and the crucial step of this process, because you will definitely end up making at least one mistake if you first don’t get familiar with them.
What do I have to do with all of this, though? In short, I have done my fair share of research on this topic and I’ve heard a lot about those mistakes that led towards people complaining about CBD oil, meaning that I now have some useful insight to share. To be even more precise, I have decided to share a list of some of the most common errors that people tend to make when it comes to using CBD oil for dogs. That will, hopefully, help you avoid them and thus do everything correctly. So, let’s get started.
Buying At Shady Places
Before you can start giving CBD oil to your canines, you will need to buy it. That’s common sense, isn’t it? Here is, however, what people tend to do, and what you should most definitely avoid doing, during the shopping process. Simply put, they forget to do their research on the supplier, which leads to them buying their products from shady places that simply cannot provide them with the quality and the benefits that they are actually looking for.
So, the point is that you should never shop from certain shady and ill-reputed places, because that’s bound to come back to bite you in the back. Or, to be more precise, it will come back to bite your dog in the back, but that’s pretty much the same thing, since you are responsible for your pet’s health and you will feel rather guilty if something bad happens to it. This is why you should always do your research about the suppliers.
Choosing Price Over Quality
Since we are talking about those mistakes that are made in the shopping process, here is another one that you should be aware of. The reason why people end up purchasing CBD oil from shady places is because those tend to offer unusually low prices. You should never, though, choose the price over quality and I believe I have already explained why. I’ll repeat myself, though, because it’s worth it. You want the best for your pet and low prices are usually indicators of poor quality.
Not Checking For THC
The composition of the CBD oil that you are purchasing plays a crucial role not only in its quality, but also in its general safety. What does this mean precisely? To say it simply, it means that you should never forget to check the label of the products you are purchasing, in order to see how much of certain substances those actually contain. There is one substance in particular that you should keep in mind when checking the label.
In case you couldn’t have guessed it, the substance I am referring to is Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. It is the psychoactive substance found in cannabis and it is, unlike Cannabidiol, not safe for your animals. So, your task is to find CBD oils that contain no THC at all, or up to 0.3%. If you don’t really understand the difference between these two substances that I have mentioned, then you should find out more about that, so that you can understand why it is important to not give THC to your pets.
Administering A Random Dosage
There is another thing that the composition of the product plays a part in. The dosage. If you thought that you could just randomly administer the amount you feel is right, then you were undeniably wrong. Don’t make such a mistake and figure out how to determine the right dosage instead before starting to administer the oil.
Not Observing The Way Your Dog Reacts
People tend to give CBD oil to their pets and then leave them be without paying attention to their behavior afterwards. You need to observe the way your dog reacts to this product, so that you can know if you need to lower or increase the dosage. In addition to that, you also need to check whether the oil that you have bought is effective and you won’t be able to do that unless you observe your pet.
