According to Dr. Klein, CBD is also used because of its anti-inflammatory properties, cardiac benefits, anti-nausea effects, appetite stimulation, anti-anxiety impact, and for possible anti-cancer benefits, although there’s no conclusive data on this use.
The AKC’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Jerry Klein, explains what CBD oil is, what it does for dogs, and its safety concerns and potential side effects.

Why are we hearing so much about CBD oil now? Dr. Klein points to the legalization of marijuana in many places, which has triggered interest in potential health benefits of marijuana-related products. “We are likely to see continued interest in CBD and an increase in research about its uses and efficacy in the coming years,” he says.
Due to its medicinal properties, CBD also acts as an anti-inflammatory oil. “It enhances the immune system’s response to a variety of physiological issues.”
Just like us, our pets also face bouts of anxiety. “Thunderstorm, separation, or car anxiety can have a grave impact on their health. In extreme cases, pets might try to run away or jump out of the window. Vet-prescribed oral usage of CBD can eventually calm them down,” he says.
