Reasons to treat your elderly dog with CBD

  1. Improve Cognitive Function

CBD possesses the ability to support normal cellular function and promote healthy aging through mitochondrial support. CBD is currently being studied for its apparent antipsychotic, anti-nausea, and anticonvulsant, and anti-inflammatory benefits. The anti-inflammatory benefits may offer the most benefit to the brain and aging.


  1. Treats Aches & Pains

CBD oil naturally helps reduce inflammation in all parts of the body. The same endocannabinoid receptors that work together to relieve anxiety also target areas in the body experiencing pain. Many holistic veterinarians recommend CBD oil to elderly dogs suffering from joint pain. While it isn’t a cure for all joint issues, it can ease the inflammation caused by worn down cartilage, and it helps dogs feel better and stay active in their old age.


  1. Decreases Anxiety

The life of a senior dog might not seem stressful, but many pups suffer from different kinds of situational and behavioral anxiety. CBD oil targets the endocannabinoid system to help the body balance emotions. The endocannabinoid system is the same in all mammals. It’s comprised of spaced-out receptors that communicate to keep the body balanced. CBD oil works to initiate chemical transmissions between receptors that help the dog feel calm in times of stress. Pet owners use it for dogs with separation anxiety, phobias, and general anxiety.


  1. Increase Appetite & Fight Nausea

Food and nutrients are essential for a healthy aging dog, and a good diet is especially important if your dog is battling a serious illness. They need food to give their body the strength to fight back, but many health conditions shut down their appetite. When they can’t eat, they become weak and are even more vulnerable to whatever kind of damage their illness may be causing. CBD works to counter this effect by stimulating appetite. Whether it’s nausea or a general weariness that’s keeping the dog from eating, CBD triggers hunger. When the dog eats without feeling sick and vomiting the food back up, they absorb much-needed nutrients to help their body stay strong and healthy.


Final Thoughts

Using CBD oil to alleviate pain and promote overall well-being for your dog is something more and more people are catching on to. There’s still a lot we don’t know, but initial studies on humans show incredibly promising potential.

CBD & Anxiety in Dogs

Understanding Anxiety in Dogs
Before we go into the details on how CBD works to calm canine anxiety. It is common for dogs as it is for humans to experience anxiety at some point in their lives. Most people often view the life of a dog as a simple one, but it is also marred with a lot of complications. Their lives are almost like those of human beings. Anxiety that is based on withdrawal has shown to be very common to dogs. Statistically, it has been proven that more than a 25% percent of dogs have trouble with anxiety. Dogs can sometimes undergo abuse, both mentally and physically and therefore are exposed to fear. Dogs are commonly affected by environmental conditions in which they have previously experienced something that frightened them, if they are then re exposed to this environment it will trigger anxiety. Change in habitat is also a major stressor for dogs. Aged dogs are also prone to anxiety attacks which may affect their memory as well as their ability to learn.

What symptoms in dogs show the presence of anxiety?
Anxiety is usually presented in different ways depending on the dog but some common signs to look out for are:

• Pacing
• Whining and whimpering
• Trembling
• Barking
• Aggression
• Panting
• Confining themselves to a small space
• Drooling
• Yawning or licking lips repeatedly
• Dilated pupils
• Having accidents inside

Can CBD Help Control Canine Anxiety?
The way CBD works for anxiety in dogs is the same way it works for anxiety in humans. Research shows CBD oil works by interacting with the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoid system to soothe and calm anxiety naturally. The endocannabinoid system is a newly discovered and complex biological system that’s not that well understood yet. What is understood is that the body has cannabinoid receptors throughout the central nervous system, the organs and the brain. These receptors are known as the endocannabinoid system. When the body naturally releases endocannabinoid chemicals (or you ingest them through a tincture) they connect with the receptors and that stimulates the body’s natural ability to create serotonin, a natural mood stabilizer.

Benefits of CBD For Horses



CBD oil for horses enables them to benefit from the natural healing powers of cannabis without being exposed to THC.

CBD has become an increasingly popular therapy for horses, especially those who are prone to joint problems, lameness, and anxiety. Independent trials conducted by Equine Veterinarians suggested that horses who were treated with CBD oil enjoyed detectable health benefits, including reduced anxiety, improved mobility, and reduced pain. It’s very common for horses to experience inflammation and pain in their joints. The weight of the body puts a strain on the connective tissue and the joints, and if you have a horse who is very active or they have a working role, this can further increase the risk of swelling and discomfort. CBD for horses can provide relief for general aches and pains, arthritis and joint stiffness.

Horses can endure scary, unnerving experiences and this can contribute to anxiety. If your horse is anxious about traveling or they don’t like to be contained, CBD oil can reduce stress and make them feel calm and more content, your horse will seem happier, and hopefully, they’ll continue to be their fun and playful selves.

If you are considering giving your horse CBD, it’s important to get the dosage right. A general guideline would be up to 25mg per day to boost general health, up to 80 mg per day to ease anxiety and 100-200mg per day to alleviate chronic pain. Optimum dosages will depend on the height and weight of the horse. It’s always best to start with a small dose and increase it gradually.

Benefits of CBD Oil For Cats

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is basically one of 60+ compounds found within the cannabis plant. These “cannabinoids” are essentially the molecules that make up the plant’s substance. THC is the more well-known cannabinoid known for getting its users “stoned” or “high”. What makes CBD amazing is that it actually counteracts the effects of THC. Strains of the plant that have higher levels of CBD naturally have lower levels of THC. These strains of cannabis are used medically because they are either non-psychoactive or much less psychoactive compared to strains with high levels of THC. CBD can be protective against some of the negative side effects of THC. Many dispensaries will describe their products in terms of a ratio of CBD to THC. While THC has many therapeutic properties, legislation to make it legal and research to find therapeutic doses for pets is needed


How Can CBD Benefit My Cat?​

CBD is an amazing compound because it is a more natural medicine that can treat the same things in cats as it does in humans. This means you now have access to a safer alternative to medications that are used to treat many ailments your cat may have.

A few things that CBD infused oils, treats, and supplements can do for your cat are:

  • Prevent And Cure Cancer*
  • Help With Digestion/Relieve Nausea
  • Relief From Anxiety And Phobias
  • Improve Joint Mobility/Reverse Arthritis
  • Reduce Pain And Inflammation
  • Suppress Epilepsy And Seizures
  • Improve Skin And Coat Conditions
  • Aid In General Aging And Wellness

If you are a health conscious pet owner who has a cat that suffers from anything, it’s worth looking into CBD options for him/her. Many pet owners do not feel comfortable administering prescription drugs to their pets! Most are human grade drugs and come with a lot of risks. With CBD, the only known side-effect is becoming too sedated. CBD can promote relaxation to the point of mild sedation which means the dosage is either too high or your cat is simply too sensitive to cannabidiol.

And yes, it is LEGAL!!
It is worth checking with your vet for possible options in helping your kitty live a better and more fulfilling life.

Is Cannabis Safe For Pets?

Out of the many ingredients found in marijuana, two are the most prominent: THC and CBD. THC is the psychoactive ingredient that gives people a familiar “high”. It can be toxic to animals. Nontoxic CBD is not psychoactive and provides many health benefits. The CBD oil that is used to treat pets has almost no THC and can be used safely for infused edibles.

Instead of getting the CBD from marijuana, manufacturers extract it from its legal cannabis cousin, hemp. Even though they cannot legally make claims of the ingredient’s health benefits, infused edibles are still available to treat a variety of pet issues. These include pain from arthritis, cancer, or terminal illnesses.

It is heartbreaking to see pets suffering from painful conditions. They often lose weight from the inability to eat and absorb nutrients. Veterinarians often prescribe the same medications that are given to people. It is possible for the treated animals to have identical side effects, such as kidney or liver damage.

Currently, vets cannot legally prescribe CBD oil to their four-legged patients. This does not stop pet owners from buying legal CBD edibles for their pets. There is evidence that CDB edibles can calm certain forms of anxiety.
