6 Best CBD Products For Dogs
CBD Products have the potential to relieve pain and alleviate symptoms for a wide range of ailments. They can also promote healing of the underlying condition.
There is a small, but growing body of scientific research to support the benefits of CBD for dogs, and a larger body of testimonial evidence.
A trial at Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences showed that CBD is safe and well-tolerated in dogs.
Given that the potential benefits are wide, and there is no observable downside, CBD appears to be a great option for enhancing the lives of our beloved dogs.
Here are some favorites that stood out in our research...

Benefits of CBD+CBDA Dog Chews
ElleVet chews are designed to relieve joint discomfort, counter loss of mobility, manage stress, soothe skin irritation, and aid with cognitive issues common with senior dogs.
ElleVet products are the ONLY scientifically proven to work CBD chews in the industry.
A Scientific Focus
ElleVet conducted the first ever double-blind placebo study at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, on dogs with multi-joint discomfort associated with osteoarthritis. Over 80% of dogs using chews show dramatic improvement in mobility.
In collaboration with the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, ElleVet conducted the first clinical study examining how CBD is metabolized by dogs. ElleVet determined the first proven administration structure designed for best results.
ElleVet's, Maximum Strength Calm & Comfort™ with CBD + CBDA is a situational relief chew designed specifically for scenarios where your pet needs maximum relief.
Unlike other products which are geared towards long-term use, Calm & Comfort is designed to use situationally, and provides real time relief in as little as 1-2 hours.
This product is suitable for pets 5lbs+. Pets over 100lbs will need 4+ chews, so will need 2 packs.
Petly CBD products have a strong foundation in science. All the hemp they use is grown in nutrient-rich soil in Colorado. Their farmers operate under strict guidelines and use only 100% organic practices.
Petly hemp oil contains not only CBD, but a robust profile of minor cannabinoids, including CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBN, and CBC. You will also find a variety of naturally occurring terpenes and flavonoids. What this means for you is that PETLY's products contain a full spectrum of beneficial natural compounds.
Every production run is tested for quality and potency. This makes sure that all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients are consistent and pure.
Every batch goes through rigorous testing in Petly's in-house laboratory. When the batch passes, it receives a Certificate of Analysis and a Certificate of Quality Assurance that Petly makes available to their customers.
Third-party labs are also used on a monthly basis to verify and confirm the Certificates. To date, not one batch has failed to meet Petly's rigorous testing standards.

Some Extra Information From Our Research
From the beginning, as we researched CBD, two things were paramount:
- The overall product, CBD itself, must be safe
- The manufacturers must have a strong basis in science, and rigorous quality control -- including third-party lab testing
ElleVet stood out immediately, because they are the only manufacturer to date which has conducted clinical tests. In conjunction with Cornell University College, ElleVet's tests showed an improvement in mobility for 80% of dogs who were suffering from osteoarthritis.
Beyond the stated facts, Dr. Joseph Wakshlag, an associate professor of clinical nutrition at Cornell, said that the research showed "a significant decrease in pain and increase in activity" with no observable side effects. He added "...When the patients were on industrial-hemp oil with enriched CBD in it, the dogs did remarkably better. The older and more decrepit they were, the more pronounced the improvement."
He also added that CBD will "change the face of pain management probably for years to come."
Clearly this study was a step forward for CBD.
And we felt that ElleVet deserves recognition for being the first to step up and prove that their product works.
But we were also impressed with Petly. Clearly their minutely-detailed production process shows a relentless focus on both achieving quality control and proving it.
So amongst what seems like a flood of CBD producers, ElleVet and Petly each stand out from the crowd, and we are happy to bring this information to your attention so that you can make an informed decision.
Two things also worth mentioning:
(1) A trial at Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences showed that CBD is safe and well-tolerated in dogs.
(2) The same study also showed that CBD is most efficiently delivered in the form of oral oil.
Nevertheless, there are obvious benefits to be had from all the products above. They reflect different approaches to the use of CBD.
For example, I think the ElleVet Calm and Comfort Chews are a great idea -- designed for when your dog needs maximum relief quickly. And I think the Petly CBD Dog Food Topper is a terrific idea, too — it doesn't get any easier than adding a quick scoop to your dog's food. So, oil maybe the most efficient delivery method, but I wouldn't want to miss out on these other types of CBD.
Whichever you choose, your pet will thank you for your efforts to improve his life.
