Recent Study Shows Veterinarians’ Knowledge Of CBD Benefits For Dogs Is Lacking Largely Because Of The Minimal Amount Of Research
Despite CBD’s success in the health industry, there is very little research data in veterinary use. Veterinary Information Network (VIN) created a study to assess the knowledge level, views and experiences of U.S. veterinarians with regards to the use of CBD in treating dogs. The study had 2,130 anonymous participants responding to an online survey.
Results were analyzed based on the legal status of recreational marijuana in the participants’ state of practice, and year of graduation from veterinary school.
Most involved in the research were knowledgeable about the differences between CBD and THC and the fact that high levels of THC can be detrimental for dogs. Surprisingly, recent graduates were less happy to talk about the subject and less likely to recommend or prescribe CBD to a client.
The research suggests that states, where marijuana is legal, were more likely to have veterinarians discuss and recommend it as a course of treatment. While CBD is gaining popularity to treat anxiety, seizures, and pain management, it is not used much in terms of canine treatment. CBD oil and edibles are the most common ways of consuming it and getting relief.
