What Are The Benefits Of CBD For Dogs?
Dogs and cats like humans have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that allows them to benefit from CBD. The endocrine system allows the active ingredients in CBD to help relieve many symptoms. The ECS’s primary function is balancing all of the other systems of the body. When ECS is balanced, pets will be more relaxed in stressful situations without dipping below healthy energy levels, making for great companions.
CBD Oil from tincture drops or CBD dog treats/chews can help with several conditions your pet may suffer from either occasionally or chronically, such as:
Anxiety and Stress (including storms & loud noises like fireworks)
Pet owners can use CBD as a means of calming down their anxious or stressed pets. CBD encourages pets to feel more relaxed because of the way it interacts with pets’ endocannabinoid systems.
When we first adopted Duke he was very anxious and had problems settling down. He could not sit still for more than a few minutes. After talking to our Veterinarian, we started him on CBD tincture and that really helped him relax, settle down and sleep better. (Read more about Duke's Story here).
If your dog is having a hard time dealing with the fireworks and loud noises during celebrations such as New Year's day and even Christmas, giving him CBD oil is a good idea.
It can help dogs that are susceptible to anxiety, even as it helps with minor things such as allergies and arthritis in their joints. It has been reported that more than a hundred thousand pet owners have already used it so you also might want to give it a try. You'll be glad that you did.
There are many benefits to using CBD oil for dogs. One of the major benefits is that it helps in making your dog have a relaxed and calm state of mind no matter what is going on around him or her. This can be very helpful especially when you will use this during fireworks and other loud noises as mentioned earlier. You'll be happy to know that it offers a calming effect which will help your pup sleep better during the day and night.
This product can also help your dog's immune system stay healthy and combat stress which is a very good thing. You should also know that it has natural anti-inflammatory properties making it great for calming pains, swelling as well as arthritis in the joints. As previously mentioned, this product can also provide your dog with relaxation especially if he or she is suffering from anxiety.
Dogs can take CBD if they are suffering from a condition that causes them pain. Dogs with arthritis and joint problems, for instance, could benefit from using CBD consistently.
CBD is legal in all 50 states and there are no known side effects or interactions with any other drug your pet may be on.
Arthritis or Pain
Pain, stiffness, and mobility problems in pets that suffer from Osteoarthritis can make it difficult for them to live their best lives. If you want to help alleviate their discomfort without spending a fortune on expensive treatment, Duke’s Naturals CBD oil or treats may be the best option for you.
CBD oil can also be used in combination with traditional treatments for cancer. Unlike many other pharmaceutical medications, CBD does not cause the “chemo-brain” that typically results from conventional treatment regimens. You can find tincture drops - check out our store.
CBD oil also helps reduce symptoms of depression and stress, which is why it’s often used in combination with other treatments for cancer. CBD has proven to be a great alternative to many conventional medications that might otherwise leave your pet feeling lethargic or out of sorts.
The benefits of CBD for dogs have been scientifically proven. One study showed that animals who were given THC/CBD oils had no adverse cognitive effects and did not display any signs of intoxication or lethargy, which can be common among other cannabis-based products. This study showed that the medications could also serve as a safe alternative to other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications for pets.
CBD can also help with chronic pain and digestive problems. It can reduce appetite, which is common in overweight dogs – especially older ones. CBD can help support the body’s endocannabinoid system, and can even help with controlling epileptic seizures.
Dogs can also benefit from CBD for allergies. Dogs with skin allergies have been seen to improve after taking CBD oil.
CBD Oil has been found to lessen the symptoms of inflammatory skin conditions like Atopic Dermatitis in dogs, a condition where the immune system attacks the skin resulting in dry flaky skin. Topical treatments of CBD oil have been shown to reduce these symptoms and even help restore healthy cells and tissue in cases where the animal has already suffered from inflammation.
