One of the great things I love about how I started working at a healthy dog food store is learning about giving CBD to your dogs. We all know about how CBD has been growing in popularity among humans. Humans smoke it, they take gummies for it, and they take tinctures of it. It, no doubt, has especially been growing in popularity among older people too. I have two grandparents, and they asked me if I would go buy them CBD gummies to help them sleep at night and to help with their aches and pain. And that's exactly what it is used for for dogs too.
Dogs, you have to understand, are more sensitive to CBD. From my experience of giving my dog, Zoey, CBD, she doesn't need much. For dogs, CBD comes in treats and chewies, and it also comes in tinctures. A certain brand of CBD treats I've been buying come in 1 MG and 4 MG. The 1 MG is given per every ten pounds so one treat per every ten pounds the dog weighs. And the 4 MG treat is one treat for every 40 pounds. I've been buying the 1 MG treat, and my dog weighs forty pounds. So it doesn't take much for her. And I don't give her them that often. I usually have them ready for when there's a thunderstorm or when there are fireworks. CBD calms dogs down and chills them out if they deal with anxiety during those two events. CBD will make dogs extremely tired and even put them to sleep which is very lovely for when a thunderstorm is happening and your dog would normally be shaking with fright during it.
CBD is also good for hip and joint health so if you have a dog that is a senior and has trouble walking up and down stairs, CBD might be right for you. Other benefits include helping with seizures and inflammatory problems.
Now that you've learned about CBD for dogs, when going forward, remember to not give your dog too much. I stress again that dogs are more sensitive to CBD than humans.

The Best Diet for your dog is a raw diet
The best diet for your dog is a raw diet. The only problem with this diet is it is for people who have money to spend. It's the most expensive diet you can feed your dog. The cheaper option for this but still will cost you money is to sprinkle raw freeze-dried or raw frozen on your dog's kibble.
Now, what are freeze-dried raw and frozen raw dog food? Well, it's not kibble, I can tell you that. Kibble is cooked and raw isn't. It comes in two different ways, freeze-dried and frozen when buying it. Freeze-drying is a dehydration technique and because of this process, it has a longer shelf life and can just sit in your pantry and won't expire as fast. Frozen raw dog food is the cheaper route because it is frozen raw dog food that you will have to unfreeze and will take more time in doing so. Freeze-dried is suggested to add water to it even though you don't have to and frozen raw will be wet and soggy once unfrozen and fed to your dog.
