Benefits of CBD Oil for Dogs
The benefits of using CBD for your dog is incredible, with more and more people seeking the treatment for their furry friends. Products containing this substance have opened a whole new world for pet care and those who believe in natural remedies. Dogs and all vertebrate species have the same endocannabinoid system we do, dogs in fact have more receptors then humans.
Treats Seizures and Epilepsy
Many dog owners turn to CBD when their canine suffers from seizures and epilepsy. High levels of CBD can manage your pet’s seizures. Over time, it has been known to reduce the frequency of them, and in some cases get rid of the seizures altogether.
Relieves Chronic Pain/Arthritis
Even dogs can’t escape arthritis, but CBD can help with that. Arthritis is the inflammation of joints that cause aching, pain, and other degenerative illnesses. As CBD is a pain reliever, it targets these aching joints and gives your dog relief. Not only that, but it soothes the chronic inflammation that prevents your pet from healing properly.
When a dog loses their appetite, it can be hard to know the reason why. Majority of the time, however, they lose it due to nausea. As a human, we won’t eat when we feel like that unless we take something to alleviate the digestive issue and receive pain relief. CBD can do this for your pet. There are many reasons like autoimmune disorders, parasites, and others that can cause your dogs to not eat. Always have them checked by a vet for more serious underlying conditions.
If you have ever suffered from anxiety, then you know that it is awful, and it would be the same for your dog too. Many dogs suffer from anxiety and have been known to be depressed and extremely anxious in certain situations, such as when their owner leaves, Fireworks, and those sever thunder and lightning storms. This can result in destructive behaviors such as chewing objects, urinating, pacing, jumping on your lap, drooling uncontrollably and more. CBD helps because it is a relaxing stimulant that calms your pet.
Prevents and Fights Cancer
Unfortunately, dogs can get cancer too, and when they do they have symptoms of nausea, loss of appetite, and chronic pain.
CBD allows your pet to feel comfortable during those difficult times and helps to reduce the side effects that cancer can have on your dog.
Pet owners are also giving their dogs small doses of CBD daily as it has been proven to aid in preventing and killing cancer by:
• Helping the immune system to kill cancer cells
• Blocks the cancer cells ability to produce energy
• Contains anti-tumor properties
Helps All Types of Diseases
Most diseases in dogs all result in the same types of symptoms – chronic pain, nausea, loss of appetite, change in behavior, etc. CBD is an all-around stimulant that can help your dog relax and alleviate pain in troubling times.
Some diseases that CBD helps with includes
• Inflammatory Bowel Disease
• Autoimmune Disease
• Neurodegenerative Disease
• Cardiovascular Disease
It is important to remember that all dogs and pets react to ingredients differently. Always read the ingredient label and make sure your product always has a MG dosage. There has not been a lot of research on canines and dosing with cannabinoids. We recommend you start small and work your way up until the desired effect is reached. I always recommend taking the dogs weight and dividing it by four to figure out a desired MG dosage. For example, 20 lb dog would start at 5 mg of cannabinoids per day. 2.5 mg in the morning and another 2.5 mg in the afternoon/evening. Our pets need to be started on a very low dose for the first few days and progress towards the desired dose. You may find that your pet does good under the desired dose, you can always stay under the desired dose. You may notice you need more then the desired dose. That is ok also, Dogs are like humans and all are very different and require different dosages.
