As dog owners, we struggle with deciphering our dog’s emotions, especially when it comes to challenging behaviors like separation anxiety and incessant barking and more complicated disorders such as cancer and arthritis. Wouldn’t it all be easier if we could communicate with our dog and they could tell us where it hurt?
While CBD Oil can’t magically teach your dog English, dog owners are increasingly reaching for CBD pet treats to relieve pet discomfort and help with a wide range of ailments. It’s all due to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) we share with our canine friends.
Every mammal has receptors in its body for cannabinoids — chemical compounds that are found in hemp. When these non-psychoactive compounds interact with the ECS, they help govern the body’s appetite, sleep, mood and memory. This interaction is also involved in how our bodies fight inflammation, the perpetrator in many diseases.
A recent survey study conducted by American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association reported that 61.8% to 95% of pet owners have endorsed the health benefits of CBD-laced treats, ranging from ‘moderate to excellent’. Some of the medical conditions that were relieved by these edible treats include pain, nervous system problems, inflammation, anxiety, vomiting, digestive system problems, tumors, seizures/convulsions, skin problems and phobias, including fireworks or thunderstorm phobias.
While we can’t communicate using language with our dogs, we CAN show them we love them by reducing their discomfort and providing relief when they’re struggling. We’re honored to be able to contribute to a healthy lifestyle and would love to hear about your personal pet success story with CBD. Reach out to us.
