CBD Oil – Can it help with pet anxiety?
Does the 4th of July give you anxiety thinking about how your pet is going to react to the loud firework sounds? Does your pet hide under the bed every time there’s a loud noise? How about when you take him/her for a car ride or when he/she has to meet new people? Or what about when you leave him/her alone at home for a few hours?
If your pet gets nervous, anxious or stressed out, there are certain things you can do to calm them down. Through countless testimonials from our customers and new scientific research, we now know that CBD can be used for your pet’s anxiety.
What’s Causing The Anxiety?
Anxiety affects dogs in many different ways and like people, some are more susceptible to it than others.
Common reasons for anxiety usually are:
· Trips to the veterinarian
· Separation from their owner
Common symptoms include:
· Urinating or defecating on the floor despite being house trained
· Barking excessively
· Loss of appetite
What is the correct CBD oil dosage for my pet?
The actual dosage amount will depend on the size/weight of your pet and the product potency. Most manufacturers will give you guidelines of one or two doses a day. According to the article CBD Oil for Dogs, 6 Benefits and Dosaging, Dr. Axe recommends starting doses according to your pet’s weight are as follows:
5 pounds: 0.25 milligrams
10 pounds: 0.5 milligrams
20 pounds: 1 milligram
40 pounds: 2 milligrams
60 pounds: 3 milligrams
80 pounds: 4 milligrams
100 pounds: 5 milligrams
120 pounds: 6 milligrams
Begin with these starting doses and increase the dosage by 0.5 milligrams after 3 days if symptoms have not improved. You may have to increase the dosage a few times before you find what works for your pet, so give it some time and patience if you don’t notice positive results right away.
What can you expect after giving CBD to your pet?
Some pets show immediate relief. Others may require a few days before they show the effects. It’s a good idea to make notes (or even take a video) after each dose to see if there are changes. There’s ongoing research in the world of CBD and the endocannabinoid system, there is still a lot to learn and new discoveries will continue to be made.
How will it help my pet?
According to the American Kennel Club’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Jerry Klein, while formal studies are currently being performed on how CBD affects dogs specifically, scientists do know how CBD interacts with receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which help to keep your pet's body in a healthy state. According to Dr. Klein, there is anecdotal evidence from dog owners that suggest CBD assists with a variety of health and wellness elements.
