Coronavirus and Misleading Dog CBD Story

Coronavirus and Misleading Dog CBD Story. Today’s episode Angela, Hernando, and Carter hit some of the hot topics in Pet CBD as well as coronavirus and Pets. A Georgia woman says one of her Chihuahuas died and another became ill after she fed them “calming treats” made with CBD oil. Dorinda Phillips, who uses CBD to help with her own Lupus, said both of her rescued dogs suffered from anxiety, and that she tried the product after a sales representative handed her a complimentary bag of dog treats called Happy Tails Calming Treats, made by the Charleston Hemp Company. She gave each dog one treat the first day, and the second day. Then, she said, she noticed they were both acting sick. The sicker of the two dogs, Phoebe, died at the vet’s office; the other dog, Hannah, was sick but survived. This story has taken over many media outlets but the way it is framed is VERY misleading. The group breaks down the issues with this story and why everyone needs to do their own research when it comes to stories like this. Next, they break down the effect of coronavirus (COVID-19) on your four-legged friends.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Organisation for Animal Health have released information saying there is no evidence dogs can spread the disease, and there is, therefore, no reason to abandon or neglect them. If we happen to contract the virus, it is recommended that we treat our animals the same way we would a family member, in order to adequately protect them: keep our distance and, if possible, make alternate plans for care; wear a mask; and wash our hands before and after we come into contact with them. Do not kiss them. Do not snuggle their little bodies. Get someone else to walk them if possible. Basically, dogs cannot transfer the virus, and there is very little evidence that they can even contract it.
