About The Anxious Pet Brand
The Anxious Pet’s sole purpose is to help our pets live happier, more peaceful lives – after all, that's what they do for us. We pledge to create only the best veterinarian formulated products, sourced and made responsibly, and offered in ways that match you and your pet’s unique lifestyle.
Our Hemp Oil
The Anxious Pet TM Hemp Oil is a full-spectrum, veterinarian formulated oil that can offer a sense of comfort and ease to both dogs and cats.
“Full Spectrum” means we use the whole plant, which allows us to capture one of the highest levels of CBD on the market — plus optimal levels of terpenes, flavonoids and essential fatty acids.
Our Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is extracted using a solvent-free supercritical CO2 method in a cGMP Certified facility in Colorado.
We take this hemp extract and add it to Organic Fractioned coconut oil, which offers much superior stability, shelf life and absorption compared to other coconut oils.
Finally, each batch is tested by a third-party ISO 17025 accredited lab to insure it’s potency, purity and consistency.

Sadie is a 45 pound, 3-year-old Springer Spaniel. Based on the 400mg dosing chart, she should receive 1ml with dinner for the first three days. On the 4th day, Sadie should receive 1ml with both breakfast and dinner. Her pet parent should monitor her results, and at the 2 week mark, adjust the dosage as needed, depending on if their desired results were achieved.
Otis is a 70 pound, 7-year-old Labrador Retriever. Based on the 800mg dosing chart, he should receive 0.5ml with dinner for the first three days. On the 4th day, Otis should receive 0.5ml with both breakfast and dinner. His pet parent should monitor his results, and at the 2 week mark, adjust the dosage as needed, depending on if their desired results were achieved.
Safety is as crucial to pet patients as it is to the human ones. Which is why we test every batch of our hemp oil to ensure it has the desired amount of cannabinoid and terpene potency. And we make sure it’s free of pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, microbials, and other toxic substances.
But don’t just take our word for it.
In addition to our testing, we also send every batch to an independent third-party ISO 17025 accredited label to verify the results. Because when it comes to the safety of your pet, trust is important — but science is even moreso.
The Science Behind Hemp
All animals have a network of chemicals, receptors and enzymes called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which regulates the nervous and immune systems, and provides internal stability or balance — a state called homeostasis.
When cannabinoids (including CBD) bind to receptors of the ECS, it can help properly regulate mood, pain, appetite, sleep, metabolism, neuroprotection and modulation of the immune system support.
And while attention to the therapeutic application of cannabinoids by modern medicine is a fairly recent phenomena, humans have been cultivating hemp for over 4000 thousand years, originating back to the ancient Chinese. There are also references of hemp having medicinal value in the Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Indian cultures.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I give my pet the hemp oil?
Shake the bottle for at least 30 seconds and pull the contents of the bottle into the dropper to the appropriate dose (based on dosing chart). Ideally it is best to give the product directly into your pet’s mouth (cheek or under the tongue if possible). However, if oral dosing is too difficult, consider placing on tasty soft food or a treat to confirm your pet gets every drop.
Should my pet take the oil with or without food?
Due to the lipophilic nature of cannabinoids, they are best absorbed when given with a full meal that contains some fat. The research on this topic has also supported that the bioavailability is higher when dogs received hemp products with food or as a soft chew, compared to on an empty stomach.
Is CBD going to make my pet high?
CBD is not intoxicating (like high levels of THC can be) but it is absolutely psychoactive. The definition of psychoactive means any chemical substance that can change brain function and result in alteration of in perception mood and behavior. But that is NOT necessarily a bad thing. When you think about it, many people and animals are taking a CBD hemp product to reduce anxiety, so if a product produces relaxation/calming effect that is a positive attribute, not a negative one.
Why is there THC in the product and is it going to make my pet high?
It is our belief that the small amounts of THC (creating a full-spectrum product) is extremely important when targeting the ECS and creating balance within the body. The amount of THC is significantly lower than what is considered legal for a hemp product and was carefully calculated by a veterinarian to confirm safety and reduce the risk of intoxication.
What is the rationale of dosing a product that is full-spectrum?
The majority of medications in veterinary medicine follow a linear dosing curve. In other words, as the dose increases, drug efficacy increases (or reaches a plateau). Similarly, side effects develop with increasing dosage. With hemp products, however, dosing follows a biphasic dosing curve, meaning after the “optimal” dose is achieved, any further increase in dosing leads to diminished clinical efficacy. When using a full spectrum product, a way to not miss (or overshoot) the optimal dose, it is very important to start very low gradually increase the dose until you find your pets ideal dose. By slowly increasing the dose overtime, the receptors increase in number and become “primed” so the body can tolerate more cannabinoids with increase in side effects.
Please explain the benefit of a full-spectrum product over broad-spectrum or an isolate product?
The cannabis plant (including the hemp variety) includes over 700 compounds. Full- spectrum means the product contains all of the various compounds extracted from the original hemp plant including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, which contributes to
the entourage effect. Utilizing the entourage effect tends to provide the patient with the best chance of success. When the product has many compounds but not all of what was found in the original strain (including free of THC) then it is referred to as broad spectrum product. CBD isolates are pharmaceutically purified CBD. CBD isolates have no entourage effect and typically require much higher dosages to see a similar benefit compared to full or broad-spectrum products.
What is a Certificate of Analysis (COA) and is it important?
A Certificate of Analysis (COA) is a laboratory evaluation of a product that provides an objective measurement of potency of each compound, terpene profile and contaminant information. It is essential to know what is inside of the product you are giving your pet. It would be like taking a Tylenol and not knowing how many milligrams of acetaminophen there are in the product or if there any additional toxic substances. Reviewing a COA is imperative so you can confirm exactly how many mg of cannabinoid your pet is receiving, and if there are terpenes present as well as if the product is free of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, heavy metals, mycotoxins and residual processing solvents. Transparency is important to us at Anxious Pet and we believe in only using products that are safe and accurate.
How should I go about assessing which hemp product is safe for my pet?
(A) Is it a pet product or a human product?
- Stay clear from human products as they can often times have higher levels of THC or toxins such as Xylitol, chocolate or raisins.
- Avoid alcohol-based tinctures and look for an animal-safe oil base.
(B) Is there an up-to-date COA available for the exact product you are interested in purchasing (within 6-9 months)
- A thorough review of a product’s COA allows the owner to evaluate the product for safety, potency and appropriate pricing
(C) Is it in the form that works best for your pet?
They provide the safest, most accurate, and scalable route of cannabis
administration in animals
- Relatively easy to administer, although sometimes palatability can be an issue
- Dosing of liquids is easy to adjust
- Ideal administration of liquids is directly under the tongue or on the cheek to provide for some transmucosal absorption as GI absorption is inefficient
- Great when patients are picky and resistant to taking the oil or capsules
- Easy to administer for patients that resist oil tincture and soft chews. Confirmed exact amount in capsule (vs some possibly getting lost in oil or soft chew).
- Can be beneficial for both superficial conditions (wounds, etc.) or deeper issues (joint pain).
- Downside is depending on the content of the product, licking the topical could lead to THC toxicity or other unwanted side effects such as excessive sedation or GI upset.
- Also, difficult to apply in areas where there is fur
(D) Does the product have appropriate labeling?
- The product should contain enough information to be able to dose for CBD and THC (if present) on a mg basis
- Expiration code
- Other ingredients listed including carrier oil
- Dosing guide so you know how to accurately dose
