The benefits of CBD treats for dogs are well-known and range from mood enhancement and calmness to pain relief, enhanced mobility, and support for the immune system.
CBD for dogs is a safe, natural supplement or even an alternative to some medications – but please check with your veterinarian before deciding on a course of treatment for your dog if you’re dealing with an illness or injury. Because CBD oil does not contain THC (the psychoactive compound found in Marijuana), it does not cause any hallucinations or profoundly altered mental state in your dog. Instead, CBD for dogs stimulates and assists the body’s own natural cannabinoid receptors, which are responsible for reducing inflammation, alleviating pain, and promoting cellular healing.
There are numerous CBD treat options available, but bear in mind that dogs, just like humans, each have their own preferences. Many dogs will be absolutely happy to accept a CBD-infused cookie as a treat, while others may prefer softer foods – so a little CBD oil mixed in with meals would be a better option. Softer CBD dog chews are also a palatable treat for older dogs, or those who may be missing several teeth.
Before offering a CBD treat to your dog, it’s wise to ensure that you read any instructions, and ensure that the size of the treat is proportionate to the size and weight of your dog. Although CBD is safe to ingest, it’s best to start out with a smaller dose and build it up progressively.
In addition to treating the symptoms of illness, CBD for dog anxiety is highly recommended in cases where your dog may be subjected to stress – or simply have a highly strung personality. CBD helps regulate excessive nervous system stimulation and brain hyperactivity while exerting a profoundly calming effect on your dog.
CBD treats are particularly helpful for older dogs, who may be suffering from age-related arthritis or joint mobility problems. While conventional medication (such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) will help, CBD treats for dogs offer a solution that not only enhances mobility and reduces inflammation but helps reduce pain too.
At the other end of the age and activity spectrum, CBD treats for hyper dogs are recommended, too. Canine hyperactivity may be caused by an overreaction to stimulus, nervous system sensitivity, or a host of other reasons. CBD treats for dogs are an excellent way to safely calm and regulate your dog if hyperactivity is an issue.
