CBD And Your Pet

Dogs and Cats have an endocannabinoid system close to ours and will react to CBD in a similar manner. Before we begin talking about the potential benefits please just remember to talk to your veterinarian before you give your animal anything. Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let's look at the potential that CBD has when it comes to our furry friends.

Anxiety

If your dog has separation anxiety or has noise phobias, CBD oil could help to relax them. Remember that CBD won't give your animal an elevated feeling, or make them high. Giving your animal a little CBD oil before you leave the house (or if there are fireworks planned near your house) could help them to get through the experience virtually pain-free.

Seizures

It is estimated that up to 5% of all dogs suffer from seizures. There have been studies done that have shown CBD oil could help reduce seizures in dogs. The drugs usually prescribed for seizures can actually end up being harmful to your dogs’ liver and kidneys. The studies done on drug-resistant epilepsy in dogs showed that 7 out of 8 dogs showed improvement with CBD oil over a course of 4 to 5 months.

Inflammation

Studies done in animal testing has shown that CBD can help dogs that suffer from colitis and help restore their gut motility. Not only is this a groundbreaking discovery, but it was also found that CBD oil can help to decrease the production and release of inflammatory cytokines.


CBD has so much potential when it comes to the medical field. Eastern and Western medicine need to come together and become one practice and pull benefits from both practices, in not only animal medicine, but human medicine as well.
