What is Gabapentin?

Gabapentin is a prescription drug. It works by mimicking the calming effects of GABA in the brain. It is commonly used for seizures and chronic pain and often given to dogs with arthritis. 

One of the side effects of this medication is sedation which is why veterinarians sometimes require anxious dogs to take them before bringing your dog to the clinic. If you must use Gabapentin, be aware that the liquid version for humans contain Xylitol which is toxic for dogs.  Other side-effects include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Depression
  • Bulging eyes
  • Oversleeping
  • Lack of Coordination

This medication is not FDA approved

What Are The Side-Effects of Coconut Oil?

A possible side-effect is Diarrhea. Remember, more is not necessarily better. As with all supplements, start with a low dosage and slowly make your way to the recommended dose. 

Is This Product Human-Grade?

Yes. Even though HempMyPet is a pet company, their products are safe for human consumption. All their products are certified organic and made without harmful synthetic additives. 

Can I Give My Dog Hemp Products With Other Medications?

Please consult your vet prior to giving your dog any Hemp product while taking other medications.

Can Hemp Make My Dog High?

No. Hemp is naturally low in THC (0.3%) and will not make you or your dog hallucinate at all. Do not confuse Hemp with Marijuana which is high in THC.

How Do I Give This Product To My Dog?

You can put it directly to their food or let them lick it off a spoon or your hand. Do not let your dog lick the container directly to prevent contamination, as with any other product.

Does This Product Have A Certificate Of Analysis?

Yes! Never, ever buy a CBD product for pets or humans without a COA to avoid buying an inferior and potentially dangerous product. COAs certify that the product actually contains what is listed in the label and shows if there are pesticides or heavy metals present. 

In conclusion

Using hemp for dogs with arthritis and other ailments is an alternative to prescription medication. 

There are only two ingredients in this product – Hemp and Coconut oil. 

The fewer ingredients, the better.

  1. I had no idea hemp could be beneficial for dogs! I guess it makes sense, considering they aer mammals too. So if hemp works with us, it should have some sort of effect on them. Being a dog owner myself, I like the idea of being able to rely on natural medicines. My dog is happy and healthy but if he ever develops anything, I’ll make sure to check back in!

    • CBD is beneficial for all mammals including cats and even horses. I’m glad your dog is healthy. Thanks for commenting!

  2. What a great product!  I’m a firm believer in the benefits of CBD for arthritis, as I use it myself for that very thing.  I have not seen your coconut oil-infused product, but it looks like it would be great.

    I also give my old cat CBD for his arthritis.  I don’t have it in coconut oil; just a hemp-based CBD, so it has very little THC.  The THC is not good to give animals, but oils that are mostly CBD are great.  It’s helped my cat a great deal.

    I think I’ll have to try your organic coconut oil product…it sounds like a winner.

  3. I must say that even before going through this article, I know how important hemp is and how wonderful it is in treatment…I do have two dogs and on an occasion I had to use the hemp to treat them and trust me they work marvelouslly….well thanks for more information given on it..

  4. Hey Dog Lover 

    I am one, sorry about the intro but i am very enthusiastic about dogs and really love someone who shares the same feeling as i about dogs. 

    I like my pet healthy and from what i have learnt Hemp, Coconut oil and Gabapentin can help my dog if he has Arthritis. I noticed that you also added some other remedies that these can also help with. Thank you.

    I would like to know if there is any need of me using both Hemp infused in Coconut oil or Gabapentin at the same time or should i just use one ?

  5. Hello, this is really cool, I have been using prescriptive medication for my dog, she has been suffering from arthritis for about six months now and her recovering has been very slow, I find thus post helpful that I can actu alky use hemp from my dog. Thank you for sharing this.

  6. I once watched a YouTube video of an Australian Senior whose regular and prolonged use of coconut oil had helped improve his cognitive function after a visit to the doctor’s had showed an onset of Alzheimer’s. I’m therefore pleased to learn that our furry friends can also attain the same results with the hemp-infused coconut oil. Organic and food grade is a big plus for helping to hit two birds with one stone. Thanks Sonny.

    We are Blessed.

    • You’re right, Mark. Dogs and humans are similar in many ways especially when it comes to the Endocannabinoid system. Thanks for commenting
