CBD FOR PETS

Pets can offer so much joy and can become an integral part of any family. When it comes to your furry loved one’s health, finding alternative pathways to treatment can be very difficult. All animals have a different reaction than humans to many substances, often experiencing a toxic or allergic reaction to holistic items that humans may benefit from. With limited alternatives and an even more limited pharmaceutical offering, pet owners can have a difficult time treating chronic conditions experienced by furry loved ones. Veterinary services and procedures can be categorized as specialty care leading to significant expenses.

The good news is that all pets including dogs, cats, horses, bunnies, hamsters, and even snakes have an endocannabinoid system. Since we all share an endocannabinoid system, CBD may offer numerous therapeutic benefits and may be an effective alternative pathway to treatment for pets.

CBD BENEFITS FOR PETS

All the potential health benefits of CBD experienced by people may also be experienced by your pets. This cost-effective solution offers a natural alternative that may bring relief for the numerous chronic conditions that are common among our furry loved ones.

  • Anxiety and stress relief: Pets experience anxiety and stress too often as a result of separation anxiety, re-homing, travel, loud commotions, and other threatening occurrences. CBD may provide stress relief benefits helping your pet stay calm and in better control during high-stress events.
  • Joint and bone health: Old age brings bone and joint deterioration for pets as well. Many pets suffer from arthritis and other chronic joint conditions that often result in pain and lowered mobility. CBD’s potential anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties may offer relief, helping enhance mobility and comfort.
  • Car sickness: Driving is a part of life so it can definitely be difficult traveling with car sick pets. Preclinical research has shown that clinical endocannabinoid deficiency may be responsible for motion sickness. Replenishing endocannabinoids with CBD may reduce car sickness and other motion sickness issues.
  • Epilepsy and spasms: Clinical data has shown CBD’s promising potential for limiting seizures in those with epilepsy. Preclinical research has also supported CBD alleviating muscle spasms and involuntary ticks, providing a promising therapeutic potential for pets that suffer from these conditions.
  • Digestive health, nausea, and appetite support: CBD may provide numerous metabolic and digestive benefits, providing a potential appetite stimulant while relieving nausea. By potentially limiting the inflammatory response of certain chronic digestive health issues, CBD may offer your pets relief from indigestion and stomach pain.
  • Parasitic and bacterial infections: The encouraging anti-bacterial properties of CBD may offer quicker recovery from parasitic and bacterial infections. Left untreated, these infections can lead to significant health concerns making it crucial to always speak to your veterinarian for comprehensive treatment.
  • Skin and fur health: Pets have CB2 receptors throughout their skin just like humans. They’re just as susceptible to chronic skin conditions experiencing dry, irritated patches and hot spots. Topical CBD may offer anti-inflammatory properties that offer relief from painful, inflamed lesions.
  • Cancer: Preclinical data has showcased promising results with CBD’s potential in limiting abnormal cell growth. Cancer cell proliferation was prevented in animal trials with CBD, providing a potential alternative for your pets.
