Frequently asked questions
What is CBD?
CBD for pets is relatively new, but has proven itself as a serious medical benefit for animals. CBD is a natural, safe, effective, non-prescription treatment for pets, and completely legal.
What can CBD be used for?
CBD can safely treat inflammation, pain, seizure-related health problems, and can also be used for end-of-life ailments.
How is CBD made?
Our CBD concentrate is extracted & refined from industrial hemp and has ZERO psychoactive THC (meaning that your pet will not get “high”). Our CBD is not from marijuana, and nothing we produce is psychoactive.
What makes Pet Med Labs CBD different from other CBD treats?
While new CBD treats continue to pop up almost daily, we remain the sole manufacturer of providing CBD in a PURE MEAT, 100% grain-free treat. One of the benefits of CBD is to address joint pain and inflammation, but if you are knowledgeable on grains and gluten, then you know that they are the primary source and cause of inflammation in the first place. So why add the benefits of CBD to an inflammatory-causing grain-based treat?
Questions and other health benefits of CBD?
We encourage you to dig a little deeper into the properties and many other benefits of CBD for your four-legged companion due to FDA regulations on what we can and can’t post.
Will I see the benefits of CBD Bites immediately after giving it to my pet?
Each animal will react differently to our CBD Bites. Some will show a response within 5 minutes while others may take up to an hour. You know your pet better than anyone so when giving the CBD Treats, take time to carefully observe your pet. If you do not see a difference within an hour, give another half or full serving. Essentially, all animals are different and you can give the CBD Treats as needed.
How many treats should I give at a time and in a day?
We recommend 1mg for every 10 lbs. For example, if your dog weighs 30 pounds, the serving size should be 3 treats (3mg). This can be repeated every 6-8 hours or as needed. Again, each animal will react differently to the CBD Bites.
What is the shelf life CBD Treats?
As with ALL of our treats, we don’t add ANY preservatives. We guarantee the integrity of the treat for 12 months, but quite honestly, they can last for 3+ years.
How should I store the CBD Bites?
We recommend storing our treats in a cool, dry place.
My dog won’t eat the treats but I think they could really benefit from CBD. Is there another way to use the treats?
Although most dogs and cats find our treats irresistible, we still have an occasional pet who is too finicky to even try the treats. To solve this, we created our Appetite Flakes… treats that are simply smashed into small flakes. You can easily do the same with the CBD Treats by crumbling them over your pet’s food.
How long does one serving last?
One serving of CBD Treats (1mg) will last 4-8 hours depending on the pet.
How long does it take to see results from my pet using CBD Treats?
You should see the benefits almost immediately. Cannabinoids are not cumulative, they work right away.
Is it possible for my pet to overdose on CBD Treats? What if my dog accidentally eats the whole bag?
It is not possible to overdose on CBD Treats because we remove 100% of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid used to “get high.”
Can cats use the CBD Treats?
Yes. Our CBD Treats are safe for cats. However, we recommend crumbling up the treat into tiny pieces and giving on its own or with their food.
Do the CBD Treats contain any grain?
Absolutely not! That is what sets ALL of our treats apart from the rest of the market. We simply refuse to use a “filler” in the form of grain.
Where are the CBD Treats made?
We make all of our treats at our family-owned bakery in Illinois.
What are the benefits of using CBD for my pets?
Although research is still evolving on the benefits of CBD for humans and pets alike, early studies have shown extraordinary results for pain, joint issues, seizures and stress. We encourage you to do your own research on the benefits of this unique oil.
Is there any chance my animal will get “high” from the CBD Treats?
No. We remove 100% of the THC found in hemp, the psychoactive cannabinoid, nor do our treats contain any cannabis. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause any “high” whatsoever.
Does heating the CBD make it inert or less effective?
No. This is one of several treats that we slow-bake at a low temperature well below the tolerance line of 250 degrees.
