If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know Jake and Truly both have physical conditions that affect their mobility. Jake has arthritis and Truly has a degenerative condition that increasingly affects her mobility, particularly her back legs.

After chatting with our Vet and extensively researching conditions that can affect Husky and GSD breed mobility, I read about CBD and the potential it had to slow down Truly’s symptoms. Particularly important when there isn’t a clinical cure.


CBD, or cannabidiol oil, is increasingly given to pets to provide relief from a range of symptoms. CBD is legal, and it doesn’t get your dog high. However, you do need to be cautious about where you source it. Quality control is very important.

It took me a while to find a good quality product that works for Truly. I buy hers from Simply CBD. I don’t give CBD to Jake as it’s contraindicated with Onsior, and Jake’s arthritis is well managed at the moment.

CBD (like any natural supplement) can interact with prescribed medication. It’s important to have a chat with your Vet first so they can advise you. Not all Vets support the use of CBD, but many do. At the very least your Vet will need to know so they can add it to your pet’s medication list.

Finally, CBD should be slowly introduced to your dog and dosing kept within recommended limits. If this is something you are interested in researching, Simply CBD have set up a Facebook group where you can interact with other pet owners and ask any questions you may have.

Until next time
