    Canine Support Formula is just what was needed for our old dog of 12 years of age. She’s a playful happy girl & sleeps well all night.
    Thank you k9-medibles for creating this awesome product for my “sugar face!”

  2. Brenda Colvin (verified owner)

    My dog is 12 1/2 years old. She has arthritis in her hips and front legs. In the first two weeks of taking CSF she was walking with ease. After a month of taking CSF she is doing amazing! Thank you K9-Medibles for CSF. You so deserve the highest rating than can be given!!

    I have been using CBD oil for my 14-yr-old arthritic, allergic pit/lab mix for about 2 months now and saw immediate results the first day: more playful, less stiff and she sleeps better. It gets really confusing with all the different products available, and honestly, because of the cost I usually buy either local or what’s on sale. I think this is a high quality product at a reasonable price. The fact that they publish lab test results is a big plus for me. I’ve been finding out about glyphhosates in pet food and when I email companies about product testing I get vague answers and no test results. I’m currently using this product right now and she’s doing good. Give it two thumbs up1

    I forgot a tip for people wondering how to get this into their dog: I put the drops in a tablespoon with honey and she licks it right up. I give it to her a half hour before meals. I have read that CBD oils loses up to 80% of its effectiveness when ingested so honey gives it a chance go be absorbed sublingual. I believe this is the best method to get the most bang for your buck.

    Very happy with the Canine Support Formula. Give it to Nico and Domino, they’re both still young (3 1/2 & 4), so no big changes at this time. Nico was thrown from the car about a month ago and was lucky to just have cuts and abrasions. He’s recovered nicely and back to his crazy self! Still working on a better delivery system, but for now plan to place my next order. Thanks Curtis, great product!

    CSF is a life saver! The 2-in-1 formula works wonders for pain, sleep and anxiety. I highly recommend this CBD oil for all the pooches out there!

    I have been giving Winston our older Yorkie CSF for a while now, it’s helped him drastically with his leg joint pain.

    When we stop giving him CSF after a day or two he will hesitate to jump up onto the couch or a chair, but after only taking for 1 – 2 days he leaps right up no problem! It’s actually a profound difference between the Winston WITH CSF and the Winston without CSF.

    I highly recommend the product!

    The Canine support formula has helped immensely. The excellent science and easy to understand documentation was so very helpful – especially with the stress of dealing with all the “noise” of a sea of advice. It provided an extra level of stability and healing. The Canine Support Formula was the best support for my puppy! It relieves his pain with steady improvement in symptoms.

    A big thanks to Canine Support Formula for putting pep back into the steps of my soon to be 13 year old Blue Heeler. Arthritis so limited her activity but she is moving with ease and it is due Canine Support Formula.

    Anxious 11 year-old happily adjusting better since taking this for the past two weeks. He’s had some changes and has been very anxious about it and vocal. This seems to have dramatically helped his anxiety yet he’s still a playful companion as well.

    5 star…absolutely! our girl is still so relaxed & contented with this Canine Support Formula. Sleeps well at night instead of getting me up several times a night to find relief for her because of scratching due to allergies. For an old dog who will be 13 in 3 months she is playful & happy.
    Thank you for creating this awesome product!

    Snickers, my Silky Terrier, will be 16 on Nov. 25th. He had quit climbing up his stairs up to the bed and his “Sundowners” was pretty bad. A very restless boy at night. I am happy to report that just yesterday he was using his steps regularly again and he is sleeping peacefully through most nights. I am grateful that the k9 Medibles is working so well. His “brother from another mother” Peanut (a Bishon- ShihTzu of 12) is also getting the meds. He had some back pain and was reluctant to step up/ down to go outside. He seems much better. The k9 Medibles is the real deal!

    Best CBD oil on the market! and I’ve tried many for my GSD mix RudiBoy. Between genetic predisposition to hip dysplasia, joint issues, allergies etc, as well as new noisy neighbors, by now I’ve tried several CBD oils on Rudi. Expensive, but worked. Sort of. Then we tried K9 Medibles. What a huge difference! It works better, lasts longer, he almost likes it (apparently dogs do spit!) but much easier to get him to take than others. Easy to administer by pulling his lower side lip out.. best applied sublingually/any mucosal oral area, also per my vet. Really appreciate Curtis’ dedication. It not only brought him to this as human to a lucky dog that responded to his help but he continues to be a dedicated advisor to all us humans on our pets’ health and well-being. He also gave me the correct dosages for my 10# cat too (now if only he could be here to help hold her down 🙄)
    Altogether the best, most cost effective and most helpful customer service of all CBD oils out there. Highly recommend!!!

    Phenomenal supplement!
    Has significantly helped calm my anxiety ridden dog & eased the pain in my senior dog with multiple joint/leg issues.
    I have tried similar products in the past, without gaining any notable results. K9 Medibles uses high quality ingredients, well balanced concentration of CBD & has created an amazing, effective product that will benefit SO many!!

    Since starting my girl Blossom on the Canine Support Formula she’s more active and her allergies are getting progressively better. It’s only been a week but I believe CBD from K9 Medibles is the answer to fix her constant scratching. I’m still expecting more for her allergy relief, but like Curtis has said, it takes time to work on her immune system right now. Great product or our little dog.

    I am so happy I found this for my senior who is having difficulty get up. We used it below the theraputic level for a few days to make sure he would tolerate it. We then slowly upped it to the recommended theraputic level. We see improvement daily! I was having to assist him in lifting his hips off of the floor; no longer! The company has been caring in the emails it has sent to us. I followed the company for over a year on Facebook before our senior was in need. I am grateful to have found a company that cares about pets like I do.

    We have two middle-aged pugs (7 & 8), both with arthritis, who have been taking CSF for 4 weeks. Billy Bob is walking much more confidently and is 1000% more happy and wants to play all night! Annie’s appetite has improved and she’s more alert and playful, as well. I’d tried CBD oil for Billy Bob in the past, but did not like the effects at all. I am very pleased with Curtis’ CSF, and have just ordered the second bottle!

    The Canine Support Formula has been a life saver for my 15yr old fur baby, Dixie. She had begun having seizures and our Vet had tried several meds, but we were are the point of discussing of making the horrible decision of quality of life vs quantity of life. Our one last hope was to just try the Canine Support Formula …And I am so happy to say..NO..repeat NO seizures since she has been on the formula!!! She is moving and grooving more like a puppy, playing and running during the day and sleeping good sleep at night. I very much recommend Canine Support Formula !!!

    I’ve not used this as of yet, however I have a question before purchasing. My Mastweiler is 6 1/2 y.o. She’s been on Rimadyl(?) , 75 mg twice day, for about 3 yrs due to hip issues. Can I use your
    CBD AND Rimadyl For her?
    Thank you…

      Hi Nevada,
      I appreciate your online question.

      In regards to using Canine Support Formula CBD oil for your girl along with the prescription medication Rimadyl, the answer is YES–you can use both!

      In fact, you will probably find your pup will need LESS of this NSAID after a short while on natural CSF.

      Here is a short blog on the side effects of Rimadyl for dogs and the benefits of CBD for canine pain and inflammation.

    Our dog is battling pulmonary carcinoma and is undergoing chemo treatments. It is too soon to tell whether or not the Canine Support Formula is working with the chemo, but we believe it to be. So far one of her tumors has reduced significantly and we will find out about the others in a few weeks. We believe the Canine Support Formula helps her get over the effects of chemo and has helped her mobility greatly. Since being on the formula we have seen a marked increase in her activity level despite being pumped full of chemo every two weeks. We are hopeful for continued quality of life for our dog for the rest of her life.

    The difference in my 12 year old labradoodle within just a few days of taking the Canine Support formula was so amazing it nearly brought me to tears. She jumped on my bed like she used to. She went cavorting around the lagoon pool and she actually looks forward to long walks again. I have happily recommended this product to friends. Trixie actually seems to look forward to her doses. Excellent alternative to rimydal and other possibly harmful canine RX. 5 stars for sure!

    K9 Medibles has been very instrumental in saving our nine-year-old black lab’s life! Overnight he had a large lump come up on his back and was in extreme pain. Even after X-rays the vets gut feeling was that it was cancer. She recommended a specialist and estimated 3k+ for all the testing etc. We don’t believe in spending that kind of money on our dogs so she gave him an an antibiotic (in case it was a bite) and she gave him gabapentin for pain. Three days later we were having to help him get out of his bed and go up and down the stairs to go outside and go to the bathroom. Starting on a Friday night he started struggling to breathe and by Sunday we were FaceTiming our son who lives out of town for him to tell Boone goodbye because we did not think he was going to make it through the night. Monday when I took him to the vet again, after examination she diagnosed him with Laryngeal Paralysis and recommended putting him to sleep. I refused partly because my husband was out of town and she said she would give him prednisone even though she didn’t think it would help and she gave him another anabiotic (at that point the lump in his back had already started to improve). We took him off the gabapentin and started him on the prednisone (20 mg) and I researched and ordered k9-medibles and started him on that. His improvement was gradual but within 24 hours his breathing began to improve and his legs began to get stronger. This ordeal began on 12/14/20. The improvement slowly continued and now the lump is gone, he is back to running down the front stairs and he is breathing and barking like a strong dog again!(Laryngeal Paralysis effects the bark because their throat is closing up). I dropped him down to 10 mg prednisone after 1 month and yesterday I dropped him down to 05 mg prednisone.
    I continue to give him the full dose of the k9-medibles and will keep him on this for life! It has also helped his chronic stomach issues and his chronic arthritis, which also has been miraculous for him. He has had the stomach issues his whole life and this is the first time he wants to eat and is enjoying his food without throwing up (long story) Because we did not spend the $ to do all the testing we don’t know what was behind the lump or his sudden paralysis and the sudden Laryngeal Paresis. It was horrible to go through but to get him to this point where he is eating, enjoying walking without being extreme pain from arthritis, and not throwing up on a regular basis, it was worth it! All of that to get him on the k9 medibles which I know has contributed to the healing of his throat, the lump, the paralysis, his stomach and his arthritis, along with the prednisone and lots of prayer! We spend $99 a month on the k9-medibles and I am so thankful we made the decision to put that in our budget! I am so thankful for it – It has truly changed his life! I just started our 14 yr poodle on the k9-medibles to see if it will help his anxiety and I’m going to try it on our duck as well for her arthritis. I am hopeful it will improve both! Thank you k9-medibles!

    My Dog Archie is 6 yrs old and started having cluster seizures a year ago. He has taken so much medicatioñ to reduce his symptoms and seizures but he kept having them monthly. He started taking Medibles and it reduced his symptoms after 2 weeks and he is now having the seizures every couple months. I can see the improvement each day. We are so happy with this product.

    my 9 year old golden retriever named chance it all started with back leg pain and he did not want to get up no more he would start to shake . I tried hip supplements that helped very little in the beginning than had no affect on him. so i tried k-9 medibles and a few days later he was getting up and more playful so far its a life saver for chance and for that I thank k9 medibles for giving me my boy back.

    Hi Curtis!

    I so much appreciate the tremendous change for the better that Hannah has experienced over the past 1-1/2 months in using the Canine Support Formula. She is truly acting like a young puppy instead of a tired, grouchy, snoring 10-year-old! The ladies who take turns walking her during the times following my treatments have often stated how well she is doing, how strong she is in pulling them forward. despite the heavy, chilly winds we’ve been experiencing, and how she jumps up off the ground and twirls around full circle when they first greet her. Before, due to low energy and sleeping many hours throughout the day with little activity, she would growl and snap at them, as she didn’t want anyone but me to put on her harness or to remove it…and now, in this short passage of time,she is eager to greet them and allows nearly all the ladies to manage her harness and leash. Since taking this product, she is feeling so much better that she dances around, eager to go on walks with each of the ladies in turn. Many thanks for restoring Hannah to greater activity and improved demeanor with her human friends!

    Meet Curtis on the trail several months ago while walking (slowly) my 15 year old yellow lab. We talked a bit and when home I ordered the product. She has been on it daily for 4 weeks now and her personality has picked up immensely. Her limping is almost completely gone and her speed when walking has doubled. Since dogs can’t talk all you can do is watch their emotions and I am thoroughly pleased and impressed. Even my wife noticed it a week ago. You can see that Bamboo is sleeping much more comfortably now! Running into Curtis on the trail was meant to be. It gave me access to a wonderful product .

    I have a 100 lb. 8 year old yellow lab who had knee surgery 3 years ago. He’s showing signs of arthritis but with Canine Support Formula he recovers quicker from his exercise and begs to go out as much or more than I started giving it to him. He’s always been anxious in the truck on our 4 hour drive to the cabin, but K9 Medibles has helped him relax more and he even lays down most of the time.

    I haven’t used this product yet and before I order I have few questions. My 13 yr old miniature pom has Addison disease and take fludicortison twice a day. He also takes meds for arthritis and a weak larynx that causes him to cough. Will this help and can he take it with his rx meds? My mom recommended your site.

    • curtis (verified owner)

      Hi Mickey, I’m sorry about your little Pom’s diagnosis. Addison disease (hypoadrenocorticism), is a deficiency in adrenocortical hormones seen most commonly in young to middle-aged dogs.
      The cause of primary adrenocortical failure usually is unknown, although most cases probably result from an autoimmune process.

      Many of the functional disturbances of chronic adrenal insufficiency are not highly specific; but they can include recurrent episodes of gastroenteritis, a slowly progressive loss of body condition, and failure to respond appropriately to stress (eg a lack of “adaptogenic response” to changes in temp warm/cold, etc.)

      All or some of these “symptoms” of low adrendal function can to some degree be corrected by supporting your dog’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) with CBD. So along with drug therapies to correct electrolyte/acid-base balance (Fludicortison), CBD will also help to balance your pup’s natural immune response.

      Since the symptoms of Addisons disease are vague, I would recommend NOT chasing symptoms and use a holistic approach to therapy–meaning adding CBD to your dog’s diet in a weight appropriate amount to help balance and correct the ECS to support your dog’s low adrenal gland response to external stressors. Also, be sure to deliver CBD to your dog at least 4 hours away from all other medications.

    My Dog Chuey is approaching 13 years old. He has been diagnosed with arthritis. The doctor proscribed Carprofen for him. This medication did not work and actually made him worse to the point I thought I was going to loose him. I stopped giving him the Carprofen and purchased the CBD from Curtis.
    The CBD has helped Chuey to be able to function and get around. That I am very thankful for. He seems to be doing very well now that he has been on it for about a month. Curtis truly cares about our pets! Chuey says Thank you very much Curtis. I will be keeping him on the CBD from Curtis for the rest of his days.

    All I can say is WOW!!!! My 165 lb, 8 1/2 year old Masiff Clara is back to racing with my other dog, a 3 year old pitbull, uphill, to our gate so that they both can bark at the UPS man!. Just a short groan once in awhile when she lays down instead of lots of groaning and pacing, not being able to get comfortable.

    Your product has made all the difference in her quality of life! She is back to a happy girl, snuffling at me to wake me up in the morning so I can go outside and throw her ball. All of this improvement in a week!

    I know there is no cure for osteoarthritis, as I have it myself, but you sure have made Clara’s days happy again- and subsequently, dog-mom is happy too!
    And the customer service is top notch, too!!! Curtis, you’ve made both of us old girls very happy!!!

    Started giving our 14 old long-haired dachshund/terrier mix rescue fur baby this formula in April when he started coughing and displaying signs of congestive heart failure. It seems his coughing is less, and although he’s an old, tired boy, he still is able to be playful with other family dogs that visit and seems happy, with a constant wagging tail. We wanted to treat him naturally and have confidence that we were led to K9 Mendibles to help him still enjoy life as long as possible. Thank you Curtis!

Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (FSHE) CBD Oil for Dogs

K9 Medibles’ 2-In-1 Canine Support Formula is a full spectrum CBD oil intended for use in older, senior dogs with hip & joint mobility issues.

We formulated our original Canine Support Formula to repair & restore your dog’s innate homeostasis by supporting the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and included the health benefit of CBDA for dogs who need extra special support.

Our newly ENHANCED FORMULA for 2024 is a higher potency that now contains the added synergistic benefits of True Terpenes ‘Recovery’ Blend for enhanced effects on dogs with age-related joint conditions.

Now Here’s What Makes Us Different…

Many CBD supplements use chemical solvents to extract cannabinoids from hemp oil. But our Canine Support Formula uses ZERO solvents, so your dog receives a cleaner, healthier CBD supplement to rebuild and restore optimal health, NATURALLY!

K9 Medibles uses only the highest quality hemp grown organically in the Oregon. Combined with a clean, solvent-free extraction, our 2-in-1 (CBD+CBDA) provides the best full-spectrum, medicinal hemp plant components and beneficial terpenes in the form nature intended.

At harvest, the hemp flower is fresh frozen and then put through a solventless extraction process. This is how we get what’s called “live rosin” — we’re essentially creating an extract from plant material that was never dried or treated with any solvents–thus, giving your dog the finest hemp extract made by nature. Fresh freezing also preserves the terpene “fingerprint” so that the extraction literally is the plant’s best expression at harvest.

It’s more costly to do it this way, but we believe your dog is worth it!

What Are Terpenes?


Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds produced by a variety of plants. Terpenes are what give each flower, herb and fruit its own unique scent and flavor.

Every day, everywhere you go, you encounter terpenes. When you zest a lemon, you smell terpenes. Open a jar full of herbs, what you are smelling is the terpenes. Stop and smell the roses? More like stop and smell the terpenes.

Terpenes are “aromatic compounds” that when inhaled, applied to the skin, or consumed, they enhance our experience, add medicinal qualities and greatly influence flavors and aromas.


Terpenes are volatile hydrocarbons present in essential oils produced by nature. There are more than 20,000 terpenes in existence. Plants, animals, microbes, and fungi produce terpenes to carry out necessary biological functions.

This diverse class of compounds serve as vitamins, hormones, pheromones, and as part of the immune system.

One way to think of botanical terpenes is as building blocks created by plants. These building blocks are blended with other aromatic compounds in countless ways in order to produce complex essential oils, such as Lavender, Rose, Sandalwood, etc.

In addition to unique aromas, terpenes play an equally important role in influencing the way we taste, smell and feel when a plant, herb or fruit is consumed. This happens because terpenes interact synergistically with other botanical compounds and humans hormones to create a phenomenon referred to as the “entourage effect” that magnifies the benefits of the plant’s individual components.


The vast majority of our terpenes are derived from many different natural sources. There are over 20,000 terpenes in nature and they are not unique to only one species of plant.

For example, some natural sources of alpha-pinene include pine trees, other coniferous trees, eucalyptus, sage, rosemary, frankincense and ironwort. The structure of terpenes are always the same no matter what plant they were isolated from. There is a myth that the source of the terpene is important, but that is not true. When terpenes are isolated from any plant, there is virtually no difference between them.

The terpenes we use in Canine Support Formula are from Ethan Russo’s, TrueTerpene ‘Recovery blend extracted via steam, expression, or vacuum distillation methods and fractionally purified.

What Is The Entourage Effect?

While there is still a great deal to be discovered and understood about botanical medicine, what you should know is that cannabinoids & terpenes interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an “Entourage Effect”.

The entourage or ensemble effect magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.

The primary therapeutic terpenes we add to Canine Support Formula are from TrueTerpenes ‘Recovery’ blend, including Beta-Caryophyllene, Alpha-Pinene and Linalool.

In combination, the blend of natural terpenes in Recovery formula have been shown to be vastly more effective for pain and inflammation and RECOVERY than in single isolation.

In essence, the phytocannabinoid combination (CBD+CBDA) plus terpenoid interactions in ‘Recovery’ blend produce a natural, effective synergy with respect to the comfort and carte of your dog.
