Understanding the benefits and health advantages of CBD oil for dogs is one thing, but getting them to actually take it or ingest it can be another thing altogether.
If you’ve ever tried to give your pup their heartworm or tick/flea medication without administering some kind of sly meat-related trickery, you know exactly what we’re talking about.
And needless to say, CBD oil in its natural state won’t exactly get your canine slobbering at the mouth like a platter of bacon or a slab of cooked chicken breast will.
Fortunately, there are some simple enough methods and techniques you can use to get your old hound to down his medication like the good boy that he is.
Tinctures that come in a dropper bottle allow for virtually immediate relief from symptoms (check out this adorable little guy whose seizure went away about 30 seconds after his owner gave him two drops), and are great for measuring out exact doses. When placed under the tongue, they’re absorbed directly into the bloodstream, allowing them to work quicker than topicals or edibles.
For dogs suffering from rashes, skin allergies, arthritis, or other general forms of muscle aches/joint pains (due to old age or otherwise), CBD topicals (salves and creams) are a popular and convenient way to go — they’re reliable, convenient, efficient for acute pain, and for the most part, are super easy to administer (have you ever know a dog that doesn’t love a good rub-down?).
Of course, though, nothing is likely easier or more convenient than good old-fashioned doggy biscuits, which are currently available from several different companies in a wide arrangement of sizes, flavors, and CBD dosages.
