CBD Oil for your pets
If you know any pet owners, you’re sure to hear someone recommend CBD oil for your pets. Like the way we talk about CBD and humans, there is an abundance of examples where CBD might help. Conditions such as anxiety when travelling, going to the vet, pain management etc...
If you Google search “CBD and pets” right now, the results show hundreds of “pet-friendly” products to buy.
There is no question that people are already medicating their dogs with forms of CBD and hemp extracts.
Is their proof CBD for your pet works?
Canadian vet Dr Katherine Kramer, from Vancouver Animal Wellness Hospital, first tested CBD on an elderly cat seven years ago. She is now a worldwide authority on the subject.
She said: ‘Some of my cases have been nothing short of a miracle. An elderly cat, aged about 18, who had multiple issues pancreatitis, arthritis, heart disease, kidney disease and we were keeping him comatose on conventional medicines. ‘He was miserable and facing euthanasia. However, his owner said he wanted to try CBD, I had not thought of that before and said it was worth a shot because we have nothing to lose. ‘Within a few days he was eating, and getting back to his normal self, he ended up living another two years, two good years as well.’
Another story that adds even further weight to the use of CBD for your pets comes from Lee whose French Bulldog Herbert suffers from a skin condition on his face and arthritis.
Lee swears by CBD products. After months of failing to get a cure at various vets across the West Midlands. He said: ‘I kept on going back and forth to different vets for different creams and lotions for his skin problem but it kept on getting worse. I did not like all the chemicals which seemed to be in these medicines either. ‘I was told about CBD oil, which I know is natural, and did some research. I give him a few drops for his arthritis and I’ve got some cannabis cream for his face. ‘Now I have a very happy Herbert.’
Could your pet benefit from CBD?
CBD oil is an excellent means of promoting animal health and well-being. Like humans, mammals also have an endocannabinoid system.
This endogenous system functions as a signal generator and controls all important physiological and biological processes. Cannabidiol (CBD) plays an important role in the functioning of the endocannabinoid system, as CBD stimulates the receptors. Therefore, CBD oil can help restore balance and maintain the physical and mental health of the animal.
CBD oil is widely used in dogs and cats for its relaxing and anti-inflammatory properties, making it often used in osteoarthritis and joint problems. CBD oil is also being used increasingly in horses, to improve performance. CBD Oil for pets is an excellent tool for maintaining and supporting the health of dogs, cats and horses.
