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.
