By now, it’s pretty standard knowledge that CBD oil has numerous benefits that consumers crave. Most notably, it can help you relax and can manage chronic pain.

But did you know that it also has benefits for your precious pooch as well?

Since CBD oil is extracted from the cannabis plant, it is a natural, medicinal alternative. And it does not contain THC (the “high” producing part of the cannabis plant), so it does not have a psychoactive effect on people or creatures.

You do not have to worry about it hurting your dog in any way. In fact, CBD oil can offer numerous benefits to your dog.

1. Helps Digestive Issues

There may be times when your four-legged friend seems less inclined to eat his or her meals. And every dog gets physically ill from time to time.

After you take him or her to the vet for a checkup, you can also consider adding CBD oil to your dog’s meals. CBD helps reduce nausea and stimulates the appetite naturally.

You may soon find that your dog is once again running to his or her food bowls, excited to eat again!

2. It’s Calming

There are times when even the most chill dog has a bout of anxiety.

Maybe he or she can sense you have to go away on a business trip and is moping. Or maybe they’re whining as you drive him or her to their grooming appointment.

No one wants to see their dog anxiety-riddled. But this is another area in which CBD oil can help your dog, whether their anxiety is situational or behavioral.

CBD is known for its calming effects on the mind and body. It reacts with the body’s natural nervous system to create serotonin and soothe receptors that may go haywire when anxiety strikes.

CBD oil can be a wonderful treatment for dogs that have anxiety, aggression, restlessness, trembling episodes, and nightmares.

3. Reduces Seizures

One of CBD’s most promising medicinal purposes is its ability to reduce seizures in people who have epilepsy.

The same goes for dogs, too! If you have a beloved pet that takes anti-seizure medication, CBD can actually improve the efficacy of the medication.

4. Nixes Pain and Inflammation

Just like with people, dogs experiencing pain can’t enjoy life as they should.

And if your dog is displaying symptoms of pain, you no doubt want to help them feel better as soon as possible.

CBD oil and treats can reduce your dog’s inflammation anywhere it strikes, thereby reducing any pain he or she experiences.

5. Helpful for Owners, Too!

Yes, we’re talking about how CBD oil and treats can benefit dogs. But there is no harm in pointing out how it can be helpful for pet parents as well!

Along with potentially helping your dog overcome anxiety, poor appetite and digestive issues, and seizures and pain, it benefits you, too.

CBD oil and treats are far less expensive than traditional dog medications. Keep in mind though, that you should of course never stop giving your dog their prescribed medication unless directed to do so by your doctor.

And in some cases, CBD works best in conjunction with your dog’s prescription medications. But overall, CBD dog products are not overly expensive and should not pose a financial strain in most cases.

Also, they’re simple to use. While your dog may require you to get creative in order for them to take their pills, CBD dog products are different. They come in the form of yummy treats or oil that mixes discreetly with their food.

While CBD oil and its effectiveness in treating dog-related ailments are still being studied, we do know one thing for sure. There is no toxicity level.

You do not have to worry about harming your dog when you add a couple of drops of CBD oil to their dinner or give them a post-meal CBD treat.

That’s enough to make any parent pet relax and smile!

Conclusion

CBD oil and treats have many potential benefits for dogs.

More than anything, they are safe and make a superb addition to existing medications your dog may take.
