Duke is a Rhodesian Ridgeback that we rescued in December in 2018 from Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue in Texas. After fostering him for a week, we knew we had to adopt him and bring him into our family. He was (and sometimes still is) a handful and we were afraid he would go from foster to foster. CBD Derived from Hemp Extract Oil and been a crucial part of his acclimation to being a normal dog again (well, at least normal for a Ridgie!) You can read more about Duke's story here.
Benefits of CBD For Rhodesian Ridgebacks
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 hemp extract 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 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)
- Arthritis & joint pain
- Skin allergies
- Skin allergies
Pet owners can use CBD as a means of helping calm 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 oil and that really helped him relax, settle down and sleep better.
We encourage our customers to talk to their Veterinarian about hemp extract to learn more about correct dosage amounts and other possible benefits of CBD for dogs.

About the Author
Hi, I am a registered Pharmacist with over 25 years of pharmacy experience. In my years of retail pharmacy practice, I have seen many patients, both humans and animals, suffer from stress, anxiety & chronic pain.
For several years, I worked in drug safety for a large well known pharmaceutical company evaluating adverse events from prescription medications and reporting them to health authorities all over the world. In both work spectrums, I have experienced first hand all of the adverse effects that were caused by the prescribed medications.
I have also spent the last few years fostering dogs and working with local Pet Rescues like Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue of Texas & Lucky Labs. I have seen first hand how hard it can be for rescue dogs to acclimate to their new families. Duke himself was a foster before we adopted him! CBD Oil was(and still is) a big positive factor in Duke's acclimation from a dog who couldn't even be walked or sit still to a dog who traveled over 6,000 miles with us in an RV!
I started Duke's Naturals so that your Rescue Dog (and you) can also get back to normal, naturally, with no harmful side effects!
