Why CBD Oil is Ideal For Your Pets Health
Our pets are part of the family.
So, their health and comfort is rightfully important to us.
If your pet is having health issues – what better way to help them than with CBD?
Like us, our pets have endocannabinoid receptors – most all mammals do. These are located in the central and peripheral nervous systems. They help maintain balance in our bodies – keeping us in a healthy state.
Of course, you know about Cannabidiol and its remarkable health benefits for us. And the rapid adoption of it as an alternative to harmful prescriptions has been a real blessing.
But now it looks like Fido might be able to join in on the relief. Veterinarians across the country are beginning to prescribe CBD medicines.
CBD Oil Is Showing Some Very Promising Results
Dogs – There are reports from owners that using CBD for cats and dogs can treat pain and control seizures. It also has anti-inflammatory components and has shown benefits with cardiac conditions, increased appetite, anti-anxiety, and anti-nausea. There is a study underway to learn how CBD may help in treating epilepsy in canines.
Cats – Some uses include treating inflammation, anxiety and pain.
Overall, from what we know now, it is being used for comfort..
Again, because there have been no conclusive studies, based on how CBD affects humans, some of these side effects may be expected.
- Dry mouth/decreased saliva
- Lowered blood pressure
- Gastrointestinal upset
The primary concern is the appropriate dosage.
Since there has been little documented research, it may be difficult to determine what are safe dosages and what would be toxic. All supplements and medication of any kind carry a risk. It is best to start with small amounts and closely observe your pet for any side effects or relief. Always notify your vet before changing medications or treatments.
There are some things to remember when shopping for CBD for cats & dogs. The market is unregulated and not all oils are alike. Go organic otherwise you run the risk of pesticides and other extraneous treatments. Look for quality and purity. Avoid those products with additives. As your veterinarian what they recommend.
Liquid applications are easier to control, drop by drop. Be sure it contains no THC and that the oil has a high percentage of CBD. Ask for a certificate from the seller to verify what you are buying.
Responsible pet owners want the best for their furry companions. Apply your research skills and understand what you are buying and how to use it to the best advantage of your cat or dog.
