Why CBD Oils Are The Best Thing For Your Pets

Why CBD Oils Are The Best Thing For Your Pets

They are more than pets, they’re family. That’s why our number one priority we should have as dog and cat owners (and budgies, tamagotchis, finger monkeys, etc), is how we can improve the quality of their short, but incredible lives.

I used to tell people my family dog, Jack was so anxious that he would probably shrivel up into a ball of tension and die if my parents put him into doggy daycare. As a result, they could only take a vacation if I was willing and able to go to their place and doggy sit. It was great for me because they have cool things like television and a fully stocked fridge. But it was sad for Jack because he would be depressed the entire time they were gone.

My dad is very old fashioned, but he noticed the vast difference a family friend’s dog has enjoyed because of CBD oil. So my parents decided to give it a try with Jack. Not only has our pooch’s anxiety problems improved, but he’s also more happy and playful. It’s almost like he’s a puppy again.

How To Administer The Good Stuff For Good Boy

CBD oil is the easiest, most effective way I know to not only prevent but also to cure and relieve a variety of common pet ailments. And don’t worry, your pets aren’t going to trip balls. CBD oil made from hemp does not contain THC, which is responsible for the psychoactive “high” commonly associated with cannabis.

Furthermore, CBD is non-toxic. You are not at risk of poisoning your pet. Worst case scenario, if you accidentally give your little pal too much, he or she will probably just fall asleep, or in rare cases, have a bout of diarrhea.

There are a few ways in which you can give CBD oil to your pets. The most effective way is by just dropping it under the tongue. You can also add it to their food or treats, but this will mean the CBD will have to pass through the digestive tract, which can take up to 30 minutes to take effect.

Recommended Dosage:

I advise purchasing CBD oil explicitly crafted for pets, like our very own Mojo Pets CBD Oil. The concentrations for human CBD are often too strong for what would be beneficial for those small and cuddly creatures.

Always ensure you follow the dosage instructions on the bottle, which will be calculated by weight of your pet, and will usually be 1-2 times daily or as needed. 

Below you’ll find a few of the extraordinary benefits of using CBD oil on your pets.

1. Relieves anxiety and stress

Pets seemingly have the most comfortable lives. They lie around, get lots of pats & love, and they don’t have to go into work every day or wonder when that cutie is going to text them back. It’s been three days Phoebe…

However, there are things which can cause them anxiety. Dogs, for instance, can suffer anxiety from travel, noise, or even specific phobias. In the case of my dog Jack, he mostly suffered from separation anxiety. Jack would become super depressed if just a single member of the family left the house. Talk about an emo pup.

CBD oil is a safe and effective way to ease their sweet, little hearts. The oil increases serotonin levels in the brain, which combats anxiety, stress, and depression.

2. Decelerates tumor growth

CBD oil has undergone a variety of scientific tests, and the results have been astonishing. Not only has CBD been shown to slow the growth of tumors, but it can also interfere with the spread of cancer. Furthermore, this magical elixir can enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy, while easing the symptoms.

3. Encourages homeostasis

When the body is balanced and functioning correctly, it is in a state known as homeostasis. As it turns out, CBD oil can help pets reach these harmonious levels.

The endocannabinoid system plays a large part in holding this balance, as it is in charge of many bodily processes. CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, which promotes homeostasis. Therefore, by giving your pet CBD oil, you are not only treating illness, but you are also preventing it by ensuring their bodies are functioning at the highest levels.

4. Eases pain

CBD is a powerful painkiller, and the reason for this is because CBD can halt the absorption anandamide, which helps to lessen pain signals. More anandamide floating around in the body means less pain.

And, as we will learn more about in the next point, CBD is an anti-inflammatory so it will ease any pain associated with inflammation in the body.

5. Soothes inflammation

CBD is a highly potent anti-inflammatory, and consequently, is able to treat a host of ailments pets can suffer from, such as arthritis, irritable bowel disease, and much more. CBD does this incredible deed by interacting with CB2 receptors, which then triggers immune responses in the body.

6. Stimulates appetite

We all know cannabis gives what’s known as “the munchies,” and in the case of a fussy or sick pet, this can be a massive help. The truth is, there are a number of reasons your pet might have trouble with or even stop eating. Luckily, a little CBD oil can help with that, so he or she will be ready to munch down those Scooby snacks in no time.

7. Suppresses nausea and vomiting

The current drugs on the marketplace for treating nausea and vomiting, while useful, may cause a host of problems and side effects. This makes CBD oil the more friendly choice, as the only consequences of CBD oil is more goodness, such as the points mentioned above. And when you use an organic product, like our Mojo Pets CBD Oil, you’ll ensure little Spot or Patches is getting a clean and healthy remedy.

In conclusion, CBD oil is a wonderful way to improve the quality of your pet’s life. There’s no need to wait until there’s a problem until you begin using it. As indicated above, a regular dosage of CBD oil will improve the homeostasis of your pet, which will keep them healthier and more immune to potential illness or disease, such as inflammation or even cancer.

I hope your pet enjoys a long and healthy life. Please give him or her extra pets for me tonight. That would make me very happy, so thank you.
