Firehouse is now offering our clients CBD products that are proven to work and are safe for your pets. We’ve found the CBD industry to be a bit wild since it’s unregulated, with many players developing their own concoctions that could have inconsistencies from one package to the next, could be ineffective, or could even be harmful to pets!
After more than a year of research and thorough analysis by our veterinary team, we have identified two options that meet our high standards. Both options have been verified by an independent third party to 1) confirm consistency from one product to the next and 2) confirm purity.
ElleVet has become the favorite of vet school researchers everywhere. This brand offers an oil for cats and a chew or oil option for dogs. Firehouse now sells ElleVet products at each of our hospitals.
We’re also carrying Chroniquin in our online pharmacy. This product is for dogs only and comes in oil form.
Before buying any product, please contact our veterinarians to determine the correct dosage for your pet, since dosage is based on your pet’s weight and any other medical conditions or special needs your pet might have.
We have good evidence showing that CBD may be a useful addition to the treatment of arthritis in dogs. There is also hope that it will be helpful in treating other conditions in pets like anxiety, nausea, and seizures. Research is in process at many veterinary schools to gather information on the potential of CBD.
In most cases, CBD should be used in addition to other medications to treat specific symptoms and diseases. It is also important to regularly check your pet’s lab work while taking CBD because of potential side effects on the liver.
