Have an anxious or aggressive cat?
What about one with arthritis, chronic pain, or even cancer?
If it’s a behavioral issue, you might be so fed up with your cat you don’t know what else to try. And if it’s a health issue, you may be terrified of more expensive treatments or heartbroken about the pain and suffering your cat’s going through.
CBD-based products may provide just the help your cat needs, and at a reasonable price.
CBD products help humans with many health and psychological issues, and they provide many of the same benefits for your cat too.
Here’s why you might choose to put your cat on a CBD-based product:
1. Relax Anxiety and Aggression
It’s hard to know why your cat’s anxious or aggressive. It could be their litter box, not feeling like they have enough attention, a new pet, or a visit to the vet.
The reason for their anxiety or aggression doesn’t matter.
CBD eases these feelings so you have a more relaxed, friendlier cat to be around.
When cats get CBD, they get a boost in serotonin production. More serotonin means they experience a relaxed, calmer effect like people do when on antidepressants.
2. Ease the Pain of Arthritis, Cancer, and Many Other Health Conditions
Cats only get cancer at about half the rate dogs do. Nonetheless, cancer in cats is frequently underdiagnosed.
This may be because the symptoms of cancer aren’t that obvious. They can include vomiting, diarrhea, low appetite, or rough fur.
CBD can’t cure cancer in cats. Surgery and chemotherapy alleviate the cancer itself.
But CBD can ease the frequency of nausea and vomiting, boost appetite, and soften your cat’s fur.
It can also ease feelings of pain.
Arthritis can also be tricky to diagnose because cats have such a high natural tolerance to pain.
That also makes arthritis difficult to diagnose.
However, if you are sure your cat has arthritis, CBD does reduce the pain and inflammation it causes.
CBD also assists cats in coping with all kinds of other health conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease and pancreatitis.
3. Effective Epilepsy Combatant
Around 2% of all cats get epileptic seizures.
The symptoms can be quite distressing: pacing, circling, yowling, vomiting, temporary paralysis in their legs, acting blind, and many other behaviors which can even be unique to your cat.
Not all cats respond positively to anti-epileptic drugs. And those drugs can have severe symptoms, like high weight loss.
CBD is actually so effective against epileptic seizures that the only FDA-approved drug for humans which also contains CBD gets prescribed for epilepsy in children.
If your cat’s been showing anxious or aggressive behavior, or if he or she has any of the above health problems, CBD can be quite an effective, and reasonably affordable, solution.
