CBD For Pets: How It Works And Why

Many people that have experienced the benefits of CBD for their own health and well-being ask the questions: Can I give CBD to my dog? Can my cat take CBD?  The answer is yes! CBD has benefits for dogs, cats horses and other animals. Here are some key benefits of CBD for your pets, how it works, why it works, and easy dosing procedures. 

CBD, The Endocannabinoid System And Your Pet

The endocannabinoid system (ECS), the vast biological system found throughout the human body is also present in all mammals, including: dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, monkeys, elephants and all vertebrates. Although the research of the ECS in animals is not as extensive as it is in humans, the basic structural and regulatory functions are the same. It is CBD’s interaction with the ECS that provides many benefits.

What that means is CBD will provide the same benefits for your pet’s physical and emotional well being as it does for yours. However, there are obvious differences between the human body and your pet’s body that must be taken into account when using CBD for your pet.

The great news is that CBD interacts with your pet’s endocannabinoid system, as it does in yours, to enhance biological processes that include, sleep, memory, immune response, pain, anxiety response and mood.

The overarching role of the endocannabinoid system is to bring the body to homeostasis (balance) and ensure all biological systems function properly. CBD can play an important part in enhancing the natural regulatory functions of your pet’s endocannabinoid system, thereby providing both physical and mental wellness.

Key Ways CBD Can Benefit Your Pet

CBD Helps Calm Anxious Dogs And Cats

CBD naturally benefits mental, emotional, and physical symptoms of anxiety in dogs and cats. Dogs, in particular, often suffer from various forms of anxiety including, noise anxiety, separation anxiety, fear and stress associated with traveling. This stress response results in behaviors that include: constant barking, chewing up furniture, shoes and other items, urinating or defecating inside the house, and acting out with aggressive behaviors, like your cat shredding the toilet paper!

CBD has both direct and indirect action with the 5-HT1A receptors that boost the serotonin levels in the brain as well as other antidepressant signaling. This provides both anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects.

CBD can help your dog or cat experience calm and mood elevation, thereby reducing their anxiety and fear induced acting out behaviors. This means you can enjoy their cute happy behaviors instead! 


CBD For Pain and Joint Mobility

CBD is known for its natural painkilling properties and can help manage pain in many ways, including reducing inflammation. Inflammation is the source of pain associated with arthritis, joint immobility and digestive issues in your dog or cat.

Research shows that CBD interacts with your pets endocannabinoid system to safely provide treatment for pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and other autoimmune disorders, including gastro intestinal issues. Full-spectrum CBD tincture for pets provides relief for pain and reduces inflammation as it boosts mobility with its Omega 3-rich and other fatty acid properties.

This allows your dog or cat to run, jump and play without pain so they can live an active life that promotes overall health and well being!
