Did you know that CBD can be used for pets in addition to being used for humans? Just like humans, pets can suffer from conditions such as anxiety, depression, seizures, and conditions that cause pain.
Many veterinarians will prescribe medications for pets to take when they suffer from these conditions. Medications can cause side effects in cats and dogs the same way they do in people. Because of side effects of medications, some veterinarians may recommend CBD products for dogs and cats. One of the benefits of CBD products for pets is that CBD products do not come with side effects that other conventional medications do. Typically, animals are given CBD in oil form. This can help relieve anxiety. Some pet owners will give their pets CBD oil before they have to go to the vet because they know that is anxiety inducing. Some pet owners give their pets CBD products when they are going to the groomer because they know they will be stressed out. In addition to the vet and the groomer, some pet owners will give their pets CBD products on the fourth of July because the fireworks can scare pets. CBD products can also be used on a daily basis. For pets that suffer from seizures, CBD products can be given daily to help prevent the frequency of seizures. For pets that suffer with conditions that cause pain such as hip dysplasia, CBD products can help reduce the amount of pain which can also help the pet’s mood. It is recommended that you speak with your vet before purchasing CBD products for your pets.
