Afternoon Doc, and Members

As I, was getting ready to send this, I realized CBD oil may not be legal in your state. So you may have no clinical experience. or personal owner experience

But if you do, and for, other members, does anyone have any thoughts on cbd oil (oral) as opposed to Rx pain meds. In reference to a 15 year old lab mix, with advanced arthritis? Which seemed to help the dog the most? Pain meds come with there own set of problems, where as cbd oil seems pretty begin

Thank You All for your time

Indiana does not allow prescription or recreational use in people or animals, but there is a lot of work being done, studies, etc. Much of it is being done at Colorado State as their state was one of the earliest allowing use.

It can and does work, but we don't really know effective doses and doses that create side effects. My personal view is that it's use should not be viewed as an either/or situation. Most of the time we don't get perfect results or long term relief without managing drugs, doses and combinations while always trying to minimize side effects.

I hope people who have used it in their dogs will chime in with anecdotal responses, doses and sources. With all the CBD available OTC and online, the reliability of products varies greatly - way more than FDA controlled prescriptions.

I’ve been using CDB oil for about a month to treat arthritis pain, trying to decrease or eliminate NSAIDS.

It is helping but it’s not a panacea. I stop the NSAIDS for a week but then the pain starts to return.

We had an arthritic Standard Poodle that got to where she didn’t want to get up.

Vet prescribed low dose Tramadol which pretty much was nearly miraculous.

I won’t take opioids.

We use a mix of CDB oil and metacam for our arthritic senior Weims and it does work well.

We have new neighbors with an obnoxious large dog that has made our Lulu (doxie mix)into a quivering mass 24/7. We tried CBD oil for treatment of anxiety on the recommendation of a pet supply store owner who seemed to think it was the ultimate thing. After a month we discontinued using it, since it seemed to have no effect, and Lulu hated taking it. I know the OP asked about pain relief, but just my 2 cents worth.

We have three friends who use it for their pets and 4 others on themselves. This (although not cheap) has been the one they have seen the best results with.

OP here:

Anecdotal evidence, does it work? I think so. When I give it to him, I tend to think he moves better. End of the day, after consulting with the Vet, decided to go, with tramadol and the cbd oil prn. ( the nsaids just seem to have to many side effects , for an older dog, in my humble opinion. Just tried the tramadol today. It will be interesting to compare my perceived results, between the two. Life would be much better if he could talk, then I would know the answer

I hope your dog is doing better.

CBD is great for pain relief and will also speed up recovery time due to its strong natural anti-inflammatory properties. Read more on CBD for pain on iSum.com . It's worth to read and research, I believe that my pet deserve the very best.

Winnietrey, we use ElleVet CBD oil on our dog for anxiety since June, 2019. We get it from our vet office. It does extremely well for our dog. I believe it can do well for many dogs on many issues. However I also believe many stores do not have the real thing and that is where the problem is. ElleVet is made in Portland, ME. I think they have a website. Andy is a rescue so we do not know his background except he was found in a cage in the woods. ElleVet does not make him lethargic it just calms him. Wish you luck. Our pets are family and all of us wants the best for them.

I did read an article that was aimed at CBD Oil for pets. It stated in testing that many of the product did not even contain any CBD Oil at all. Use reputable sources only.
