COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Roughly 3-5% of all dogs have genetic epilepsy, and 14 million dogs have some form of arthritis. CBD oil is helping millions of people around the world, and as a result the veterinary medical market is becoming more aware of the relief CBD can provide to dogs, cats, horses and even birds! Animals have an endocannabinoid system much like humans and can benefit from cannabinoids in much the same way. But don't be so quick to give your pet just any form of cannabis, THC can be toxic to animals, so ensuring that your pet receives a veterinary approved formulation is important. Dr. Silver is quoted as saying: "We have learned that the quality of the raw material providing the cannabinoids and terpenes plays the most important role to ensure successful clinical outcomes in our pets and farm animals. The ZERO THC full spectrum hemp oil…is absolutely safe due to it containing no THC. Numerous reports over the past 5 years have documented the potential toxicity of THC to our pets. There have been a few deaths due to THC ingestion from well-meaning pet parents giving their pets some of their own medical marijuana."
