CBD Oil For Dogs: 4 Things You Should Know
Progressive veterinarians out of Australia have been doing extensive research to identify the positive benefits CBD oil for dogs. A veterinarian by the name of Edward Bassingthwaighte shared the following findings based on his own personal research:
We have been treating a senior German Shepherd that had a 5cm mammary tumor as well as metastasis that disappeared in about 3 and 1/2 months and has come back since (it's been about 4 months that the German Shepherd is in the clear).
A Jack Russell Terrier had an intense heart murmur as well as painful arthritis and, after approximately a month and a half, the Jack Russell Terrier wanted to go for long walks and his murmur had improved.
Please note that these are not our personal findings (nor can we claim that this will happen for any or every dog). These are two out of many examples conducted by Edward and his team of veterinarians who are discovering that CBD oil could be a crucial part of veterinary practice. Edward said, “I really can’t believe the improved heart murmur, they usually don’t improve.”
CBD Oil For Dogs: What You Might Not Know (But Should Know)
Researchers and veterinarians are increasingly studying and implementing CBD. And so far it's really showing positive signs, as they’re realizing CBD has some incredible medicinal benefits. And just as CBD can help humans, your dog can gain the same potential health-boosting benefits.
Let’s take a look at 4 things you should know (but might not) about CBD. The current studies so far show that CBD has major potential in helping dogs deal with a variety of ailments.
1. CBD Is Non-Psychoactive
CBD is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (which CBD is without, or at least in our case, is without) can also be found in cannabis and it’s this compound, THC, that provides marijuana with psychoactive properties. CBD oil allows one to receive the medicinal benefits without the high. Often, CBD comes from hemp (ours does), not marijuana. To summarize, your dog won’t get “high” from CBD products. Your pups will get the same relaxation benefits without the high.
2. CBD Oil Can Help Reduce Anxiety
If your dog suffers from separation anxiety or loud noises (thunder, fireworks, music, etc), then CBD might be a great solution, as it's been thoroughly studied and known for its calming effect on stress and anxiety.
In humans, CBD has been shown to:
- Reduce anxiety caused by speaking in public
- Reduce anxiety for people with anxiety disorders
- Be effective for panic disorders and PTSD
3. CBD Can Help Relieve Pain
Studies show that CBD can be effective in:
- Decreasing pain
- Decreasing the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress
- Decreasing inflammation in acute pancreatitis
- Reducing general inflammation
- Reducing intestinal inflammation
4. CBD Can Help Increase Your Appetite As Well As Help With Nausea
If you struggle with getting your dog to eat, CBD may help increase your dog's appetite.
Research has pointed to the use case of CBD as a way to help reduce vomiting and nausea in animals.
