How to determine High Quality CBD Products?

CBD for dogs and cats comes in many forms. Tinctures, Treats, Balms, in a variety of strengths so you can make sure you're getting the right strength for your dog or cat. But with just about every seller of CBD products claiming theirs is the 'best' for your pet do you know what your getting? CBD products can vary widely in how well they perform for your pet so its best to have a bit of background in grading CBD so you know what quality and effectiveness the CBD product will have on your beloved furry family member.

Doctor Dawggy recommends looking over the COA (Certificate of Analysis). If the product you are looking at doesnt have one that's not only a “big red flag”, it's against the law. By Federal mandate, all legal CBD products need to show you a COA. What is a COA? A certificate of analysis is a report from an accredited laboratory that details the chemical analysis of a CBD product. Every batch of CBD product should be tested individually, and a COA is generated for each run. Nearly all CBD certificates of analysis are done using a third-party laboratories. Here's an example from Doctor Dawggy's product line.


You don't have to be a scientist to know the basics of reading a report. First, look for the obvious!

  1. Did the product PASS? As obvious as that seems some product lines don't pass and probably don't have a COA to show for it. A COA will show you some of the 'must have' items such as is the product full-spectrum, does contains the amount of CBD it claims, and is free of contaminants.

Next look for a few items that insure it's right for your pet:

  1. Is it Organically-grown? High-Quality CBD products are generated with Hemp that is grown organically.

  2. What does the THC count come in at? If the CBD oils comes from a high THC plant it would contain a higher amount of THC which can be lethal to animals. It should be less than .3% THC. NEVER GIVE A PET A PRODUCT CONTAINING MORE THAN .3% THC!

  3. Are the Lab test done independently? It doesn't mean much if “Honest Ben's Pawsome CBD Tincture” was tested by good ol' Honest Ben himself. Make sure the laboratory running the test is legitimate (In our linked example, Doctor Dawggy's CBD Tincture was done at SCLabs, and has contact information should you feel the need to do further research on them.)

  4. What method of Extraction was used? In our example, the method used was “Tested by high-performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection (HPLC-UV).” This ensures no method was used that would leave a residue behind that may hamper the products effectiveness or possibly be harmful to your dog or cat.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist or be a MD (Mutt Dawg) like Doctor Dawggy to understand what is a quality CBD product for your pet. Doctor Dawggy makes sure all her CBD products have COA's and pass the strict requirements Doctor Dawggy has on products she sells to her friends. As always, talk to your veterinarian before introducing any CBD products into your pets diet. You can check out other CBD articles on Doctor Dawggy's Blawggy.
