For both people and animals, one of the most common reactions of the body in an effort to combat stress is anxiety. Helping people suffering from anxiety is easier than helping dogs, as the feedback is lacking. Some veterinarians are starting to use CBD as an anxiety prescription to dogs. The administration of CBD to dogs can be done in several ways, with intake through food being most favored. CBD tends to calm the dogs, alleviate any pain that may lead to anxiety, numbs the inflammations, helps with digestive issues and affects the mood of the animal. As with any CBD dosage, particular care should be taken when considering the size or weight of the dog.
- Dogs may suffer from anxiety, which can manifest as extra barking, backsliding on house training or extra restlessness.
- CBD oil can help sooth a dog’s pain, digestive upsets or mood swings, helping the individual feel calmer.
- It is easiest and most effective to give CBD oil to a dog in conjunction with their favorite snacks.
“The presentation of CBD in the system of the pup in question is going to activate a calming effect. That is by veiling the pet’s fear or any form of anxiety trigger. The step leads to relaxation, therefore diminishing anxiety either partially or wholly.”
