Pet sitters and dog walkers have become curious about how incorporating CBD oil supplements into their business can promote health in the pets they care for.
As a responsible and compassionate dog walker or pet sitter, you care about the health and happiness of the pets you care for. Everyday, pets and their owners are relying on you to keep the animal safe and healthy while they’re apart.
Incorporating CBD oil into your pet sitting or dog walking business can be an innovative way to naturally promote health in the furry friends you care for. Also, you may find that offering pet-specific CBD oil supplements to the owners you work with can be an all-natural way for helping their pets maintain health and wellness in between your visits.
Interested in hearing more about what CBD oil can offer your pet sitting or dog walking business?
Here we discuss CBD oil and how it benefits pets like dogs and cats so that you can best decide whether offering CBD oil would be helpful for both your human and furry clients.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is an all-natural botanical extract made from the seeds and stalks of hemp plants. Widely used for years as a supplement in humans, people are now discovering how hemp-derived CBD oil can provide natural wellness and restorative properties in pets.
CBD oil is an optimal source of CBD, or cannabidiol, a cannabinoid that interacts with the body’s native systems to promote health and balance. Found in the cannabis plant’s flowers, seeds, and stalks, CBD is easily extracted from hemp in the form of a viscous, nutrient-rich, and cannabinoid-packed CBD oil.
This CBD oil can be processed into a number of CBD supplements that can be used to boost wellness in pets.
When CBD oil is made from hemp, a cannabis variety that naturally contains no more than trace levels of THC, it is completely non-psychoactive. This means that pets like cats and dogs can benefit from the balancing properties of plant-derived cannabinoids without any psychoactive effects, or “high.” This is particularly important for dogs, in which large amounts of THC can be particularly toxic.
What Are The Benefits Of Giving CBD Oil To Pets?
As an crucial pet companion and caregiver, pet-specific CBD oil supplements can help encourage balance and health in the dogs and cats you care for. This could in turn help manage or prevent certain issues and contribute to better long-term wellness.
When you give a pet CBD oil, the CBD is eventually delivered to the bloodstream, where it interacts with their endocannabinoid system. Like in humans, a pet’s endocannabinoid system is responsible for keeping a wide array of functions and physiological processes in balance. Functions like sleep, appetite, metabolism, and immune response are kept running optimally by the endocannabinoid system.
As you can imagine, a properly functioning endocannabinoid system is crucial to pets reaching and maintaining health and wellness.
By interacting with cannabinoid receptors found on cells throughout the animal’s body, CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, encouraging its efforts to keep functions balanced. This support naturally promotes cardiovascular function, encourages healthy joints, and promotes neurological health and emotional behavior.
When derived from hemp, CBD oil also contains many nutrients such as vitamins A, C, D, and E, as well as an optimal ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, that support a healthy skin and coat and overall general wellness.
Pet CBD Products From HempMeds®
HempMeds® offers a range of pet-specibid CBD products from Phyto Animal Health that can work well for the pets you walk or care for overnight.
Phyto Animal Health’s CBD oil supplements are formulated specifically for pets like dogs and cats, and larger livestock animals like horses. Leading veterinarians were consulted in the creation of safe and effective daily CBD supplements for pets of all sizes.
Pet Vitality™ is an all-natural CBD hemp oil product that combines decarboxylated hemp oil with medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil derived from organic coconut oil. It is best for use in small and medium pets like cats and dogs. Pet Vitality™ comes in two sizes, including a 1 oz. bottle containing 100 mg of CBD, and a 2 oz. size with 500 mg of CBD.
Vitality-X™ is an ideal option for those pet and livestock owners that want to avoid concerns over THC.

HempBone Bacon Apple Donuts
HempBone Bacon Apple Donuts are artisanally-baked CBD dog treats. Each treat is infused with 4 mg of CBD and natural bacon and apple ingredients for a delicious daily CBD product.

Is CBD Legal?
Derived from the seed and stalk of hemp plants, Phyto Animal Health CBD products are federally legal in the United States, despite containing trace amounts of THC.
However, individual states are free to pass their own laws regulating hemp CBD, and some have done so. Some states’ policies unfortunately have opted to regulate hemp CBD products the same as marijuana.
Phyto Animal Health’s full-spectrum CBD oil supplements that contain trace amounts of THC – including Pet Vitality™ — are currently available in more than 40 U.S. states, without the need for a veterinarian’s prescription.
In states that have opted to regulate hemp-derived products, our CBD products that do not contain detectable levels of THC – including Vitality-X and HempBone Bacon Apple Donuts — are still available in all 50 states, no vet prescription needed.
Is CBD Safe for Pets?
You and the pet owners you service can rest assured that CBD is a safe and all-natural supplement for pets. CBD is non-toxic, well tolerated, and non-psychoactive, which means that pets can enjoy the balancing and wellness properties of cannabinoids without experiencing any euphoric or other undesired side effects.
Just recently, a research review investigated the available evidence regarding the safety of CBD in both humans and animals. It concluded that controlled CBD administration is safe and non-toxic, even at high servings.
Side effects linked to CBD are minimal and include some reports of dry mouth, lightheadedness, and drowsiness.
To further ensure that our Phyto Animal Health pet-specific CBD supplements are safe for cats, dogs, and other pets, all our hemp oil products are put through our stringent Triple Lab Tested™ process for both safety and quality. Three separate times throughout manufacturing, the CBD oil supplements are examined to make sure they contain reliable levels of CBD and that they’re free from contaminants like mold, mildew, microbes, chemicals, and heavy metals.
