CBD For Pets

CBD has been used as a treatment for different animal ailments. These include symptoms that are also treated by humans with CBD such as inflammation, pain, seizures, and cancer. It has also been used to relieve other conditions like phobias, anxiety, and digestive issues. Some pet owners have also reported using CBD products to provide better palliative care to their animals. According to these users, the life quality of their animals improved vastly after using CBD on them. Their pets also gained energy, weight, and appetite. Most importantly, their animals seemed much happier with an increase of purring and tail wagging. Some studies have shown that 61.8% to 95% of pet owners have approved treats laced with CBD for their pets’ health benefits.

CBD for acute and chronic diseases

Many pet owners have approved the use of CBD in treating chronic conditions in pets. These include compromised immune systems, arthritis, aggression, digestive issues, and stress responses. Currently, there are studies that are being conducted to establish the effectiveness of CBD in the treatment of organ diseases, cancer, and Type 1 diabetes.

Veterinarians have also found CBD products such as CBD Oil and CBD Edibles, to be beneficial in the treatment of acute ailments like torn ligaments, strains, and sprains, as well as bone breaks. CBD has also been proven beneficial in the provision of post-operative care in the reduction of pain, stiffness, and swelling.

If a pet is currently on conventional medication for any of these health conditions, taking CBD can make it possible for the pet to use conventional drugs in lower doses and still achieve better therapeutic effects. This is particularly beneficial because conventional medicines have side effects.

How CBD works in pets

Currently, there are many human studies on the health and medical benefits of cannabidiol. However, it might take a decade for positive veterinary cannabinoid research outcomes to be announced. But, until then, it’s important to consider the anecdotal evidence as well as testimonials from pet owners. That’s because it has already been proven that animals and humans share up to 70% biological homology. So, there are grounds to believe that cannabidiol can be an effective treatment for pets.

Just like other herbal medicines, CBD may not have immediate effects on pets. That means you must be patient with your pet. A pet can experience some relief from pain within a few hours. However, symptoms or conditions like inflammation can take some days for improvement to be seen. Nevertheless, you can rest assure that 100% Organic CBD pet products that do not contain THC will NOT make your pet “high” and the only reported side effect of CBD for pets is drowsiness.
