Poodle health and how CBD Can Help
Here we look at CBD in more detail and show you exactly how you can use it to treat a variety of conditions that might affect your Poodle. Poodles can suffer from some of the following ailments:
Arthritis: Arthritis is common with Poodles. Usually affecting older dogs, arthritis causes chronic inflammation and degeneration of the joints, especially the knees, hips, elbows, and shoulders. It is also more common in dog’s with other related conditions, such as IVDD (Intervertebral Disk Disease which is caused by a herniated disc in the spine), Hip Dysplasia, or Patellar Luxation. Arthritis is also more common in active dogs or smaller breeds that regularly have to jump up on things, such as miniature Poodles. CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory, meaning it can help reduce swelling and inflammation around the knee caused by patellar luxation and osteoarthritis.
Once your dog begins dealing with arthritis, they’ll likely also experience strong pain sensations around the knee and hind legs. Once arthritis sets in, you’ll likely find your dog becoming more lethargic and far less energetic.
CBD’s anti inflammatory properties can help with these issues.

Epilepsy: Epilepsy can affect Poodles. It causes a rapid, uncontrollable firing of the neurons in the brain, which in turn causes regular seizures. These seizures can obviously be really distressing to watch and can vary in intensity and regularity.

Hip Dysplasia: Usually this is a genetic problem with the hip joint. This may cause the hip to dislocate regularly, and also causes abnormal wear and tear of the joint. It also puts your dog at a higher risk of developing arthritis, and can cause stiffness, inflammation, pain, and even lameness.
Patellar Luxation: Patellar Luxation causes the knee cap to dislocate regularly and is the most common knee abnormality affecting dogs. And while it only causes acute pain when the kneecap slips out, it can affect a dog’s level of activity, and can make them unwilling to go on walks, exercise, or jump up on things. Patellar luxation is common in smaller dog breeds, and tends to affect miniature or toy Poodles.
Patellar luxation,is a common condition affecting smaller breeds like miniature or toy poodles. It is caused by an abnormality in the knee, which causes the capella (knee cap) to dislocate regularly. Direct trauma to the hind legs or knee is also a cause of this.
Dogs with patellar luxation will usually only experience a brief, acute pain when the knee cap actually slips out of place. Unfortunately, patellar luxation is commonly accompanied by osteoarthritis which, on the other hand, is a very painful and debilitating condition.
If your Poodle is suffering from patellar luxation and arthritis, consider giving your dog CBD.
