For many years, dogs have become a favorite companion for humans. It is almost impossible to walk into any home and fail to find a pet. However, this comes at an expense, especially when you need to take good care of their health, including finding a professional vet and identifying the right medication to give them for particular ailments. For this reason, there is a growing trend in pet health and wellness year in, year out, and it turns out that CBD for dogs is gaining popularity for a good reason.

The thought that CBD helps dogs alleviate pain, inflammation, and treat several ailments is mindblowing in itself. But how does CBD interact with a dog’s health system? Scientists and veterinarians know that CBD affects the endocannabinoid receptors in the nervous system, maintaining a balanced and normal health state. 

What are the reasons to give your dog CBD?

Even though there is no conclusive evidence suggesting how CBD helps treat ailments in dogs, it has been used for its cardiac benefits, anti-inflammatory properties, appetite stimulation, and anti-anxiety benefits, anti-cancer benefits, and others. Most importantly, CBD for dogs has been used to control seizures and relieve pain.

Here are five convincing reasons to give your dog CBD. 

1. CBD can alleviate pain in dogs.

There are several painkillers to give your dog when they are in pain. However, some of these treatment options cause liver damage and have adverse side effects. On the contrary, CBD is a more natural pain reliever for ailments caused by inflammation. Its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties make it a perfect remedy for arthritis and joint pains. 

Like humans, dogs rely on their Endocannabinoid system (ECS) to restore and regulate their immune response. However, due to certain reasons, dogs might get deficient in Cannabinoids and thus require CBD oils to supplement, modulate pain and restore balance in the ECS. For these abilities, CBD is a perfect treatment alternative for dogs with hip dysplasia, arthritis, and joint pain. 

2. CBD for pet skin care.

Taking care of your pet includes grooming them and taking care of their skin. However, depending on your dog’s coat and skin, it is crucial to identify the right conditioners and shampoos. CBD skincare products are soothing and can offer relief to itchy skin. These products contain antioxidant properties making them perfect for pet skincare. 

If you are looking for natural remedies to your dog’s itchy and dry skin, look for Lazarus Naturals pet care products. Most pet products have a unique blend of CBD and natural extracts such as aloe vera and oatmeal.

3. CBD can reduce epileptic seizures.

According to research on dogs and epilepsy, about 5 percent of dogs experience epileptic seizures. CBD can be a perfect treatment alternative for the management and control of epilepsy. CBD oils interact with the CB1 receptors, primarily in the nervous system and the brain, to control seizures and calm overactive neurons. These receptors play a more significant impact in the treatment of seizures and epilepsy.  

If your dog suffers from spasms, tremors, and convulsions, the right CBD oils may be a viable treatment alternative to treat and reduce the seizures’ frequency. 

4. CBD can help with anxiety and stress management.

There are several reasons why your dog could experience stress or anxiety. Even if they are living in a happy household, they might be susceptible to anxiety and stress. However, like humans, treatment for anxiety remains almost the same. Here is a rundown of signs to look out for when your dog suffers from anxiety and stress; 

  • Excessive urination.
  • Aggression and excessive barking.
  • Drooling and yawning.
  • Changes in body posture.
  • Excessive panting, and so much more. 

When you notice your dog is stressed and anxious, CBD might offer an effective solution. It helps with regulating serotonin levels, which equally influences emotional response. CBD in the correct dosage can curb anxiety and lower stress levels. 

5. CBD might help promote homeostasis.

CBD promotes the interaction of Endocannabidiol receptors in the Endocannabinoid system. This equally supports your dog's biological activity. Even more, it can activate CB1 and CB2 receptors, which actively reduce inflammation, promote cell function, and relieve stress. To keep your dog's ECS functioning at its optimum, CBD can supplement its reserves for Endocannabinoids.

Widespread concern for many pet owners is their pet's appetite. When your dog stops eating, CBD might help revive their appetite, boost immunity, and prolong life. 

While these are some of the best reasons to give your dog CBD, does it have any side effects or risks? Well, no scientific research or evidence lists the potential side effects of CBD for dogs. Some common side effects are dry mouth, lowered blood pressure, and drowsiness. Even though these are mild side effects, it is vital to consult with your vet before administering CBD to your dog or any other pets.

    I have read many interesting posts about this product and with good feedback. I operate a similar website and also there are many positive research chemicals helping out in all areas of health. They just need to be made legal in a lot of cases as still being tested.
