In the Midwest we’re getting hit with large amount of loud storms and summer fireworks are just around the corner. We might love to watch the storms and fireworks but our furry four legged family members might be terrified.
If you’ve tried the standard radio or tv, shutting the blinds, and anxiety shirts but nothing seems to be helping fido you may want to consider CBD. Not only can CBD help with pain and inflammation from arthritis or injury it’s showing to help with anxiety.
CBD is fast acting with nearly zero side effects working quickly in the endocannabinoid system to lower stress levels. Give 20-30 minutes prior to anxiety event to help them stay calm. Dosage depends on weight and strength of the product. Start with a low dose and and increase your dose till you see a desired effect. Extremely large doses rarely have adverse effects and you will often only see a very sleepy relaxed pet.
Using a combination of CBD oil or treats with other distractions can help your pets stay calm and comfortable during otherwise terrifying times.
Be sure to talk with your vet about added CBD to your dogs life and chose a product that is limited ingredients and 3rd party tested.
