Just like humans our furry family members are experiencing relief from many of the same issues we do. Issues like inflammation, pain, anxiety, and even seizures.
How it works
Cannabidiol (CBD) is from the hemp plant. Hemp plants have extremely low levels of THC so your dog will not “catch a buzz”. Being that CBD is Not psychoactive your pet would only experience a calming or pain relieving effect.
Dogs and Humans share the same endogenous cannabinoid system and CBD targets the receptors in this system. Receptors are found in the brain, organs, central nervous system and immune cells.
Chronic Pain relief and Arthritis
Many veterinarian pharmaceuticals used to reduce pain long term in our pets can lead to kidney and liver issues. CBD may help with the inflammation in joints caused by arthritis and other regenerative illnesses. CBD is able to target the joints causing the pain. With the help of decreasing inflammation your pet is able to rest and heal properly.
*Keep in mind you pet my feel better but make sure if they are healing from an injury they are fully healed prior to being released to normal activity.
When your pet is suffering from general or separation anxiety it’s tough to see them that way. These pets become depressed and some time destructive. CBD helps relax them and be less anxious in certain situations. With dogs combining CBD with positive reenforcement training for anxiety dogs are able to learn the proper coping behaviors to be comfortable and happy.
Epilepsy and Seizures
As seen in humans, Dogs and their owners are finding success with treating seizures with high doses CBD. Over time the seizures are reduced and some completely stop.
Pets lose their appetite for many reasons and we don’t always know why. If your veterinarian can not find a cause CBD may help. CBD helps from relieving pain, nausea and digestive issues related to autoimmune disorders and cancer treatments too.
Fighting and Preventing Cancer
If your pet gets cancer symptoms they may face include nausea, loss of appetite, and chronic pain.
With the use of CBD your pet is able to feel comfortable during these difficult times and may reduce the side effects of cancer and any treatment you may chose to try.
Owners have also been giving small daily doses of CDB to help aid in preventing and eliminating cancer cells. CBD works in the immune systems by killing cancer cells, blocking their ability to produce energy and is shown to have anti tumor properties.
Autoimmune and other Diseases
With the use of CBD to relax and reduce pain we’re able to help our pets through difficult times with different diseases. By helping alleviate chronic pain, nausea, loss of appetite, anxiety you and your pet are able to have more good days than bad.
CBD may help with:
– Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
– Autoimmune disease
