I have a dog breed that's really high-energy, and a bit anxious.
Not insanely anxious, but I feel like treating with CBD would benefit him. He goes to the park or to daycare every day, and he's still energetic.

Has anyone tried giving CBD to their dog? In what quantity?
I've googled around but haven't found great resources, just that some people give their dog Xanax which sounds god-awful.

in oregon and washington i saw dispensaries selling cbd infused pet treats. though they are a bunch of dirty hippies out there so who knows if its actually safe or tested in any way. but it seems there are people out there doing it.

If there is not a chemical imbalance in his brain adding chemicals to his brain seems like a poor way to handle his anxiety. Get other people to walk him more or take him on longer walks? Change his diet?

Is he anxious or do you just have a high energy dog and you can't handle it so you want to fuck with the way his brain works without his consent?

I've never seen anyone try to drug their dog before. I'm not sure if mine is the shitpost or OPs. Is this real? Do people really seriously go "Oh my dog is stressed I should drug it" because that's fucked up.

Is this just America or is OP the shitposter?

People drug their cats with nip or weed.
Someone drugging their dog isn't that farfetched.
And I don't even know how you can think this is an American thing. Practically every culture has tried drugging animals if they've invented/got their hands on drugs.
Plus, first link on Google for "drugging dogs" is from Brazil so yes, you're obviously the shitposter trying to incite some shit against Americans go fuck yourself.

Also, @OP, MJ isn't the best option for dogs due to their size. It can cause breathing problems, low blood pressure, arrhythmia, and make the dog feel bad. If you're able to give it to the dog at a low enough dosage, maybe but I checked online and most sites will talk about how you should go ask a vet about this instead.

I actually started with a legitimate question and you exploded. Was OP trying to drug a dog that he simply wasn't taking enough care of? I know lots of dog breeders and owners and they don't have issues like this, I have seen genuinely mentally ill dogs but they all acquired it environmentally. I do know that people drug their cats but not perpetually and I've only ever met one person who was like "My cats are insane how do I tranquilise them" ever. And she was still only half serious. Cats are still half wild, dogs are much more carefully bred to fit a role within society.

Well when I googled I got two sorts of link to anti anxiety drugs for dogs. I didn't start it as anti american but it just seemed weird that anyone else would do that and outside the North American continent my culture, being British is probably closest to yours (maybe australia I guess) and we don't.

I found two sorts of pages on anti anxiety medication for dogs.
>Medication for getting your dog through fireworks nights and long journeys and other super high stress situations.co.uk
>The same substances to be used regularly.com

Dogs have mental illness issues but it seems like a poor routine or past trauma cause it. Maybe OP's dog is a rescue dog or whatever but when you read
>I have a high energy dog can I give him pot
It doesn't seem like a good sign

I'm sure some people do. If you read the OP you'll notice I said some people give their dog Xanax which I'm against.
However, I did ask an animal board on a cannabis website if giving cannabis to my animal might be beneficial. You did not make any constructive responses.

No, because I wanted to understand what was happened.

Also self medicating is bad, amateur medicating other people is even worse because its not you who has to live with the consequences. I wouldn't recommend people who have trouble coping with life turn to drugs because that's when you're mostly like to actually become a habitual user rather than just someone who gets high for fun. Addiction is about the user more than the substance (and in the cases where addiction is practically guaranteed you have to be a certain sort of person to use them). Drugs to cope with life is basically asking to have a (lol) weed addicted dog.

It may be a better option than how stressed the dog is mind you. But it just seems like we should establish OP has exhausted everything that doesn't require drugs first.

My girlfriends grandmother has a mutt which is highly energetic;, however the grandmother can't really walk the dog and only has a small garden. So they started giving it drugs.

It's pretty sad , could you imagine staying your whole life in the same house?
It's such a sweet dog too

MJ =/= CBD

I've heard that CBD can be good for pets but I don't think I've found any credible resources. I'd ask a vet. I don't imagine it would be too harmful in low doses but I'm not a vet.

I feel like giving pot to animals is incredibly cruel, I mean aside from the fact our brains are a bit different than theirs just imagining some poor animal having a freakout and not knowing what's going on, like why do that to somebody. If it was just like a benzo then whatever.

>Xanax
Yeah except for that one. That one is really well known for triggering psychotic rage paradoxical reactions in a minority of subjects, human, chimp, or otherwise. Lorazepam is the ticket but better just train him to be comfy.

I never understand you people. It's like all you want is to feed Big Opiate with every dollar you funnel into the system.

OP here, I’m amazed at how bad the responses to this thread were. Genuinely surprised.
Anyway I give him a light dose of melatonin when he’s being too excitable. Calms him down and he seems less anxious.

I'm guessing you never asked a vet which would have been a very simple solution to your problem. Also you could have easily just googled the answer instead of posting on a slow board and waiting a month for an answer. You may be as dumb as a lot of these responses.

"This is America"
I'm with you. Now, there are anxious dogs. However, without further information from the OP about his dog we can't know if CBD is a good call for this puptient. Besides, none of us are veterinarians. OP melatonin seems like a safe call. If you really want to test whether CBD could be helpful, perhaps you should openly smoke some weed and see if your furry friend exhibits any interest in the activity. I'm not saying blow smoke in his/her face but if they're curious let them come near the ambient smoke and see how they act. If they don't want to be there, they'll leave of their own accord. I don't think this is all that irresponsible and wouldn't feel bad about opening such an option to my own dogs. The key factor here is choice. Allow them to enter and leave at their very own will. That can dictate how you proceed. Anyway, I hope everything's working out, I love me some doggos!

This is terrible advice. If you aren't a vet, you should avoid giving your animal hormones.

Morphine IS a plant extract most of the time and nothing from OP's post suggested that his dog would need either of those substances anyways. Take your anger and direct it at something else related to Big Pharma.
