Talk of the Town: Relaxation without intoxication for your pets
(WIS) - Gaining popularity, at least recognition, CBD oil for your pets. It's made up of the compound found in cannabis and hemp and veterinarians are touting its benefits for animals.
Dr. Wendy King of Spears Creek Veterinary Clinic says your pet will not get high from CBD oil. The oil is said to offer relaxation without intoxication. It does not contain THC which is the ingredient that gives a high.
Dr. King says, "It is reported to be great from head to toe. It can treat seizures. Not as a primary medicine, but in addition to. It can treat anxiety. It can treat irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, and glaucoma."
When it comes to administering the CBD oil, Dr. King says "It is an oil. It has to go transmucosal. You cannot put it on their food. It has to go through their the gums. So it has to go by syringe into the mouth."
But Dr. King says it is hemp, it has zero THC. But she has a word of caution. "The concern that I have is that it is a supplement, it is not FDA regulated. So you might order it online and you can get it with no active ingredient or you could get it with THC. So you need to make sure it has been tested by a third-party to make sure that it really is what you're looking for."
Lil' Miss, the kitten that appeared with Dr. King on WIS TV's noon show, is about eight weeks old and is available for adoption through the Cat Around Town Project.
