WHAT IS HIP DYSPLASIA IN DOGS?

Canine hip dysplasia is a skeletal deformity that occurs during growth, resulting in instability or looseness of the ball joint that sits in the hip socket.

Hip dysplasia can damage the cartilage, the tissue that cushions these bones in the joint. It can also cause pain and issues ranging from an unstable joint to dislocation. Furthermore, it can also inflict severe pain via secondary osteoarthritis.

SIGNS OF HIP DYSPLASIA IN DOGS

Hip dysplasia can manifest itself in dogs as young as four months old. Others get it as they age, along with osteoarthritis. Owners should be aware of both circumstances. The severity of the condition, the level of inflammation, the degree of looseness in the joint, and the length of time the dog has had hip dysplasia can all affect the symptoms.

The signs and symptoms of hip dysplasia are listed below:

  • Awkward running
  • Chronic or occasional frailty
  • Cracking or popping sounds from joints
  • Decreased activity
  • Difficulty going up or down objects like coaches, cars, and stairs
  • Limping
  • Loss of muscle
  • Pain
  • Trouble standing
  • Unusual sitting positions

CBD OIL FOR HIP DYSPLASIA IN DOGS

CBD oil for hip dysplasia in dogs is not a cure for the ailment. However, some studies have shown that it can assist with symptoms of hip dysplasia. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a role in many normal body functions and abnormal body processes. Cannabis and its components are increasingly recognized as authentic pharmacologic agents with substantial therapeutic capacity.

The Baylor College of Medicine studied the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD on mice. The study was in vivo, meaning the subjects were live mice. The mice were given a substance that caused inflammation in their ears. After applying the irritant, the researchers applied CBD topically. Two hours after application, there was an 80% reduction in tissue damage from inflammation. The researchers then wrote CBD treatment also significantly reduced the development of edema. Edema is swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in your body's tissues.

The study then summarizes that CBD exerts robust and quantifiable anti-inflammatory properties in experimental systems for dogs suffering from osteoarthritis. This study is important because the cartilage and ligaments can tear from hip dysplasia, and CBD may help strengthen those body tissues.

Inflammation of the joints develops in dogs when the cartilage within the joint has changed or been injured.



CBD DOSAGE FOR DOGS WITH HIP DYSPLASIA

Our recommended CBD oil dosage for dogs with hip dysplasia is 1-2mg CBD/kg of weight. If the dog is suffering, it is ok to safely give it a 2mg/kg dose.

If you find it difficult to administer CBD oil to your dog's mouth, we suggest trying CBD treats with a dose range of 3-6mg CBD/kg. Relievet has Grass-fed beef liver, Wild Caught Salmon, and Sweet potato CBD dog treats in 240 mg, 1200 mg, 6000 mg, and 9600 mg, plenty to make it to the blood stream.

BEST CBD OIL FOR DOGS WITH HIP DYSPLASIA

Finding the best CBD oil for dogs with hip dysplasia comes down to a few key factors. The first of which is dosage.

Getting the dosage right is critical to your dog's success with CBD. Choose a product that's designed specifically for your dog's weight. A 150lb Great Dane will need a lot more CBD than a tiny Chihuahua.

Always look for lab-tested products and always check the results. Many products don't contain the labeled amount of CBD, meaning you don't even have a chance at them working.

Quality is key with CBD products for dogs as the industry is largely unregulated. We meet all of the above criteria and adhere to strict manufacturing standards to feel comfortable giving our products to your pet family.

Biscuit's Story

Chris Kjolseth | CEO, Relievet

To say Biscuit lived an active life would be an understatement. Ever since she was a puppy, she’d spend her days running and playing. I’d take her on walks, to the beach, and to dog parks.​​

Unfortunately, at age 10, she started to limp after trips to the dog park. It broke my heart to see her in pain doing what she loved the most. I started feeding her a raw food diet and added high-quality supplements to ensure her nutritional needs were met.

Unfortunately, while she loved the food, the limping...
