Can I Give My Cat Cbd For Pain?

 

Cannabis 101: CBD for Your Cat

The market is exploding with cannabis products for cats. Cat owners regularly asked about the medicinal use of CBD for kitties. Over the past few years, some pet parents have been using cannabis (CBD) for their felines and have shown excellent results. Most of them have been extremely impressed with the improvement in the quality of life for their cats. Unfortunately, our feline friends are under served members of our families,  as we have less treatment options for many of their diseases.  

 

Below are some conditions that CBD may be helpful for in kitties:

  1. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Frustratingly, this is common in cats. In comparison to other treatments, CBD may have a position to help reduce inflammation, and hence symptoms. IBD cats can cough, get diarrhea or lose weight. 

Dosing: Start with 0.2 mg/kg twice daily and increase gradually for kitties with IBD. If you are using HempRx, start with 1-2 drops twice daily and then increase.

  1.  Pancreatitis: Some IBD cats have pancreatitis, as well. Treating it like IBD can be stressful. Take a low-fat diet, HempRx, herbal remedies, and digestive enzymes to help control pancreatic inflammation.

Dosing: Start with 0.1 mg/kg twice daily and increase to 0.5 mg/kg twice daily. If you are using HempRx, start with 1 drop twice daily and increase gradually. If your kitty tolerates this product, it is recommended to get the HempRx Forte as it will require smaller volumes of oil for the same dose. It is twice as concentrated. It is very important to minimize fat consumption in these kitties.

  1.  Arthritis: Cats suffering from arthritis need every assistance they can get. Too many injured cats are suffering because we don't have great safe prescription options. Since cats tend to be reclusive and do not move as readily, their aches and pains are less likely to receive care. Most pet owners believe that CBD is an extremely effective anti-inflammatory agent for these kitties.

Dosing: Start with 0.5 mg/kg of CBD twice daily and increase gradually. If you are using HempRx, start with 2-4 drops twice daily and increase. It can take 2-4 weeks to see results with body pain. Be patient!

  1. Cancer: This is a growing use of CBD both in animals and in humans. There are many records of longer recovery times and better quality of life for both cancer-stricken people and animals. Sadly we have no great research to explain how or why this is happening. In the near future, that'll change.

Dosing: Start with 0.5 mg/kg of CBD twice daily and increase gradually. If you are using HempRx, start with 2-4 drops twice daily and increase.

  1. Asthma. As with all the above mentioned disorders, asthma is a common inflammatory disease in cats. Some cats have very minor symptoms which require little to no medical procedures. Many cats need inhaler medication for long periods of life. CBD can be a perfect option to help these kitties have less inflammation and thus less attacks on asthma. Until talking to your veterinarian, it is important that you never stop taking medicine your kitty is taking. If your cat needs an inhaler to breathe, don't substitute their normal inhaled medicines with CBD oil.

Dosing: Start with 0.5 mg/kg of CBD twice daily and increase gradually. If you are using HempRx, start with 2-4 drops twice daily and increase.

  1. Chronic Upper Respiratory Infections. This was an unexpected yet enjoyable side effect among patients who were prescribed HempRx for arthritis or asthma.

Dosing: Start with 0.5 mg/kg of CBD twice daily and increase gradually. If you are using HempRx, start with 2-4 drops twice daily and increase.

  1. Seizures. While these are rare in kitties, We’ve seen amazing responses in kitties suffering from seizures. If your kitty is already taking medications for seizures, do not stop those abruptly and always work with your veterinarian.

Dosing: Start with 0.5 mg/kg twice daily and increase as needed. Some kitties may need up to 3 mg/kg twice daily. If you are using HempRx, start with 2-4 drops twice daily and increase. If your kitty tolerates this product, I recommend getting the HempRx Forte as it will require smaller volumes of oil for the same dose.
