Having a 10 yr old dog that was never afraid of fireworks, thunder or lightening to one that has all 3 anxieties now, led me to research ways to help her with these anxieties.
I tried Thunder Shirts, calming drops, classical music and many other remedies to no avail. After much research I came upon CBD oil and the benefits for pets like my own.
There are multiple scientific studies showing the positive effects of CBD for a multitude of health conditions- including anxiety reduction.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil is a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. It is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. But, it does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which produces intoxication; marijuana's "high".
It can be administered in a variety of ways, under the tongue, in food or treats or topically applied.
I began using CBD oil and to my amazement it has helped my dog with the anxiety associated with thunder and lightening in a short amount of time.
Researching this topic can be overwhelming but I found a great website, https://www.cbdoilusers.com, that helped me chose the current product I am using, the dosage needed as well as a FB page for the community of CBD Oil for Pets.
I hope this post helps pet owners out there dealing with their pets anxieties.
