CBD oil isn’t just beneficial for you. It does good things for your beloved pets too.
Texas just created law that clarifies how CBD oil can be sold. So, now you have the opportunity to give your pets CBD oil.
But, why would you want to do that anyway?
Here are the top benefits of CBD oil for your pet:
1. Reduces Anxiety
Have an anxious dog or cat? You can help them relax with CBD.
And unlike other medications, CBD has no serious long-term side effects as long as you give your pet the right dose.
CBD also doesn’t cause any high or sedation. And it causes no internal damage to your pet’s internal organs.
2. Relieves Joint Pain
Every dog loves to exercise, so it’s a strange thing when they don’t want to get up and do their normal level of activity.
Frequently, joint pain causes this in dogs. Many things cause joint pain in dogs, and one of the most common is arthritis.
Don’t have an expectation of a miraculous cure to all of the joint pain your dog experiences. But do expect relief.
3. Reduces Epilepsy and Seizures
One study examined 92 children and young adults with a history of resistance to epilepsy treatment found 66% experienced improvement with CBD.
Research isn’t conclusive on either humans or pets yet.
But there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence to support the effectiveness of CBD oil for seizures and epilepsy in animals.
4. Relieves Glaucoma
Both dogs and cats can get glaucoma, and even severe glaucoma. CBD can make glaucoma a problem of the past for dogs and cats.
Again, the evidence is anecdotal.
But CBD works by lowering intraocular pressure and can reduce or potentially eliminate glaucoma symptoms.
5. Helps with Cancer
Many people raise an eyebrow when they hear CBD reduces cancer. Cancer is such a powerful disease and we certainly haven’t mastered its treatment in humans.
CBD by itself doesn’t treat or cure cancer in animals. However, it functions well as a part of an overall cancer treatment approach.
While science can be somewhat lacking on CBD, plenty of research supports its ability to reduce the size of tumors.
You can overdose your pet on CBD. So you do need a professional opinion on the correct dosage for your pet.
If you overdose your pet, they may not be able to stand or eat. And if that’s the case, you should seek help immediately.
Don’t think we’re saying CBD is some sort of amazing “miracle” drug. That would be professionally irresponsible.
But do understand it has benefits which other medications may not achieve without serious side effects.
So it’s worth considering if your pet struggles with any of the health problems discussed!
