Treating Pet Anxiety
Have you ever experience that heartbreaking feeling when you hear your dog crying as you lock the door? Thunder, rain, loud sounds or other seemingly random triggers might throw your pet into frenzy. Pet anxiety is the same concept as human anxiety, the feeling of fear and restlessness arising from the anticipation of feeling threatened.
Separation anxiety is most commonly shown in dogs. Excessive barking, crying, urinating or making a mess are common symptoms of extreme anxiety in dogs.
The main causes for the development of anxiety are:
- Prolonged physical illness
- A traumatic experience
- Fear of separation
- No exposure to the world during the first 14 weeks of life
- Presence of toxic substances in the body
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is the most effective natural way to ease pet anxiety. While medical researchers promote the use of CBD to treat cancer because of its ability to kill cancer cells, it is also used to treat depression and chronic pain, making it ideal to treat the most common pet medical issues.
The stigma that pet owners are simply giving their pets drugs to calm them down definitely needs to be erased. While both marijuana and hemp come from the same plant, Cannabis Sativa, Marijuana contains 10-15% Tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), whereas hemp or CBD contains only 0.3% or less. As a matter of fact, our CBD contains 0% THC, so you don’t have to worry about getting your dog “high.” This is what gives CBD its medicinal properties, the lack of side effects reported by users, matched with its calming, anti-inflammatory and generally beneficial qualities observed by researchers.
How it works
Anxiety generally affects receptors in the brain and nervous system. Cannabidiol acts an anti-inflammatory to calm these receptors. Long-term use of CBD has shown to naturally reduce the occurrence of anxiety, rather than temporarily treat it. You’ll see how beneficial and safe it is to use CBD oil for pet anxiety. Feel free to consult with your veterinarian before treating your pet in case of any unrelated factors that may cause concern paired with CBD.
