Hemp 4 Paws Product Review
Hemp 4 Paws is a Canadian based company specializing in, but not limited to, hemp healing products for pets. Both owners, Dave and Devon, discovered a need for pet safe CBD products when both of their pets required a natural remedy for personal issues/traumas. And thus, Hemp 4 Paws was born, and boy are we glad it was. Although they offer more than just CBD oils for pets, this post will focus on just that. To read their full story, click here. And be sure to check out the online shop to view their entire product line.
CBD healing has been proven useful for humans and is currently being heavily studied for pets. Of course, like any study, before a veterinarian can legally recommend CBD oil as a form of treatment, a certain amount of testing needs to be done, which could take years. So while CBD hasn't yet been board approved, and my veterinarian isn't able to recommend it for treatment, he can't deny that he's seen success with it in many other cases.
When you choose to use CBD oil for your pet, do your research. Pick a PET SAFE product and monitor the dosage/how it's impacting your pet. I chose to review Hemp 4 Paws because after researching many CBD pet oils on the market, I found Hemp 4 Paws to be the most transparent company, providing a product that I trust and stand by.
The quality of this product is the best I've seen for a product of it's kind. Hemp 4 Paws products are third-party tested to ensure that your pet is getting the highest quality product available. And as stated on their website, each product is non-psychoactive and will not harm your pet, even if you need to give them more than the recommended dosage. This is a crucial factor when deciding on a CBD product for your pet. It absolutely MUST be non-psychoactive.

CBD oil can help your pet in a variety of ways. The most popular treatments are to help aid:
- Nervous System
- Bowel Disease
- Cardiovascular Health
On the Hemp 4 Paws website, you will find a dosage guide that will help you determine how much your dog requires. You can also contact Hemp 4 Paws directly if you're unsure of how to dose your pet or have a unique circumstance that you need guidance for.
The bottle comes with an attached dropper that is helpfully labelled to assist with proper dosing.
They recommend starting with 0.5 ml twice a day and then adjusting the dosage if desired results are not reached within a week. This applies to all of their formulas.
If you need to increase your pet's dosage, they recommended increasing by 0.25 ml (per dose) every three days until you achieve your desired results.
To learn more about dosing, visit their website directly or reach out to their support team.

Where to Purchase
Hemp 4 Paws can be purchased directly from their website, and can also be found in some local pet boutiques.
I discovered Hemp 4 Paws when I was on a weekend trip in Collingwood, Ontario a couple years ago. A local pet store 'Dogs We Love' handed me their pamphlet, educated me on the company, and sold me on the benefits of CBD oil for pets. I have since seen their product popping up in local pet stores throughout Ontario. So check your local pet boutiques, or simply order online.

If you have any questions for the Hemp 4 Paws team, you can email them at email@example.com.
From my experience, they are very responsive and happy to answer any questions you may have. I found them to be particularly helpful should your dog have special needs and you're unsure of how to dose them.
If you are not satisfied with your order, you have 30 calendar days to return it from the date of purchase.
You must have a copy of your receipt, and your item must be unused, and in the same packing/condition you received it in.
You are also responsible for the shipping costs of the return.
The bottles are glass, and unfortunately, not every courier is as careful as we'd like them to be. Although Hemp 4 Paws ships their items responsibly, by covering and padding the glass bottles, items can get lost or be broken upon delivery.
On their website, they state that they are not responsible for broken or lost items, which I agree with. Any lost or damaged items will need to be reported to the courier. However, I have ordered online numerous times and have never had an issue.
Buying for a good cause! $1 from every product sold gets donated to animals in need. To find out more about the charities Hemp 4 Paws donates to, visit their website directly.

I love this product and stand by it.
If you've read through this website, you'll know that Rocky has had his fair share of health issues. Recently, after being diagnosed with Addison's Disease, he developed Pancreatitis. The bloat to his stomach was unreal, and yes, a change of diet helped that; however, pairing a new diet with CBD oil reduced the swelling substantially and in such a quick span of time. Not even his internal medicine specialist could believe his progress.
Even more recently, Rocky tore his CCL. Because he has Addison's Disease, I can't give him NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) as they counteract his Prednisone, which he relies on for survival. I started giving him CBD treatments at night when necessary and it was a game-changer for the inflammation and pain. It has helped his recovery in a monumental way. He did not require surgery on his knee, and five months later, he is running and playing like he used to.
Another use has been for his anxiety. Addison's Disease is stress-related, so using CBD to calm him down in times of stress is essential. CBD oil is very commonly used in A dogs for both stress and the supplementation of NSAIDs.
Last week (July 2020), Rocky was diagnosed with stage 1 kidney disease. And while it seems he has a million different health conditions, you'd never know it if you met him. He is beyond happy and, overall, managed healthfully. With the help of his doctor, required medication, and CBD, I can give him a loving, happy, and pain-free life every day that he allows me to.
