Not All CBD is Created Equal
Thinking about using CBD for your dog?
CBD is great for many dogs, but like with anything else it's important to know what you're buying.
Be sure to only use CBD and other supplements that are NASC certified. Pet supplements are all but unregulated. Look for NASC certified supplements to ensure you are buying from responsible suppliers that have successfully passed a comprehensive third-party audit and maintain ongoing compliance with rigorous NASC quality requirements.
To earn the seal, companies must successfully pass a third party audit every two years. The audit includes:
Have a quality control manual in place that provides written standard operating procedures (SOPs) for production process control, which helps ensure the company is providing a consistent and quality product.
Have an adverse event reporting/complaint system in place to monitor and evaluate products in real time.
Comply with stringent labeling guidelines for all products and all forms of labeling.
Include on product labels any specific warnings and caution statements for particular ingredients that are recommended by the Food & Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (FDA-CVM) and the NASC Scientific Advisory Committee.
Submit to random product testing by an independent lab to ensure ingredients meet label claim.
