CBD Oil for Dogs and Cats
Innovet PurCBD+ PhytoCannaBinoiD Oil for Pets Review

As most of you may already know, Dexter has a neurological disorder that I’m always trying to keep at bay. My goal for Dexter’s care is to provide him with the best pain-free life possible. This little monkey is almost 9 years young, and often people think he’s a puppy. They are shocked when I tell them his age and that he has a disease that can cause so much pain.
His medical treatment is not a one and done, but a synergy of things to help keep him as pain-free, mobile, and happy as possible. One of Dexter’s daily regimes includes CBD oil for dogs. Before I go into my review of Innovet PurCBD+ PhytoCannaBinoiD Oil for Pets, I want to give you a little background on hemp for dogs and help you in determining if CBD oil is right for your pet. I also want to offer some ideas on how to choose a good CBD oil brand for your dog.
Will CBD Oil Get My Dog High?
In a word, no. Both marijuana and hemp come from the same plant genus, Cannabaceae, but they are two different plants. Hemp-derived phytocannabinoids do not contain the hallucinogenic compound Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), so they do not cause the “high” associated with marijuana. You may actually start to see a change in labeling and classification to PCD Oil, as it is more accurate than CBD Oil. To be classified as hemp, it must contain less than 0.3% of THC. Some varieties of hemp products are nearly free of THC.
Choosing A CBD / PCD Brand for Your Dog
When I’m choosing a CBD oil for Dexter, the first thing I look for is their published testing and lab results. In my opinion, the best CBD oil companies offer transparency and publish their lab results online for consumers to review. Following their testing results, I want to read their entire ingredient panel. I don’t want to know just the active ingredients. I also want to know the inactive ingredients.
Three Items to Evaluate
When I’m reading the lab results, the three things I look at are the chemical residue results, amount of THC, and the total cannabinoids by weight. I don’t have a set “this fails, this passes,” but I go with my gut. And when I’m thinking about Dexter, I can be pretty choosy in quality. I will say, the first two, residues and THC, play a bigger role than the amount of cannabinoids, since that can always be increased or decreased, but quality cannot change.
Dexter’s Journey with CBD Oil for Dogs
Over the last year, Dexter’s disease has continued to progress. There is no stopping that, therefore, I try my best to stay one step ahead with this care and prep him and his body to be able to meet the upcoming challenges.
About a year ago, Dexter became a bit wobbly and bobbly. I would see his head doing a little shake and his eyes fluttering. I spoke with Dexter’s canine rehabilitation veterinarian, Dr. Mary L. Cardeccia, on what I could do to help, and she prescribed phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) oil twice a day.
Dr. Cardeccia explains, “Phytocannabinoids and terpenes have anti-inflammatory properties, pain relieving properties, and a quieting/soothing effect on the central nervous system (can control seizures), so I am hoping that using it with Dex would help on all three of those levels.” Dr. Cardeccia continued by saying, “I think that you may start seeing improvement after a few doses, as the anti-inflammatory effects should not take long, but the CNS (Central Nervous System) effects may take a couple of weeks to get to full effect.”
When I started Dexter on his 2 times a day dose of CBD oil, I started to see fewer bobbles pretty quickly and even an increase in his spunk. A few months into Dexter’s regimen, Dr. Cardeccia increased his dose from 2 times a day to 3 times a day. We are shooting for no bobbles. Sadly, I’m still seeing bobbles, but even less frequent than on our 2 times a day dose. That said, adding CBD oil to Dexter’s care has made a big improvement in his life.
When Innovet reached out regarding their PurCBD+ PhytoCannaBinoiD Oil for Pets, I went through my regular screening process. First, I went to their website to see if they provided testing results on their pet CBD oil, which they did. The results checked out, so my next step was to read the entire ingredient panel. All my quality control items checked out, so I happily obliged in providing a review and working with Innovet. We decided Dexter should use their PurCBD+ PhytoCannaBinoiD Oil 750mg.
