We recently explored introducing CBD to your pets at home, as well as the different ways it can help improve their general health and well-being. Today, we at Alchemyst Labs, wanted to dive a little deeper into the specific ways you can utilize CBD at home to help target specific health issues plaguing your beloved four-legged friend, as well as some key pointers and tips to ensure your pet’s safety is always ensured.
Pet Anxiety If you recall from our blog yesterday, CBD is not a harmful product for your pet. There are no psychoactive elements in pet CBD products, and thus nothing that will give your furry friend any sort of “high”. This is especially important when dealing with pets who suffer from anxiety-related issues. Animals are prone to anxiety, and often to far worse levels than humans because they are incapable of expressing themselves and feelings.
Animals at home may feel anxiety for a variety of reasons, such as moving to a new home, separation from a parent or loved one, being introduced to new pets or even illness and death in the family. There are also pets who come from difficult home and have developed anxiety due to their history and prior living situations. This type of trauma is often found in adopted pets, and is typically dealt with through therapy. Though these types of therapy treatments can ease an animal’s pain (along with medication) they are not often the final solution to the problem. We highly recommend using CBD to help naturally ease pets out of their anxiety related issues, but only alongside positive changes in the home front that help combat those issues as well.
The Hardships of Old Age As is with people, our pets will eventually grow old after a lifetime of love and care from us. It can be difficult to see a beloved pet being to degrade in health and wellness as their age extends into the later years. With old age can come a variety of complications for your pet such as arthritis, a decrease in bone density, debilitating pain and stiffness of the joints and muscles. For cats and dogs that have grown used to a lifetime of play and adventure outside, this lack of mobility can be devastating to their psyche as well. CBD again can help with many of these issues in a natural and non-addictive format to aid your pet through the aging process. CBD has been shown to have a positive impact on bones, muscles and the regeneration of tissue over time to help fight against arthritis. While there is no cure for time, there is one for the ailments that it brings along with it. CBD can be the answer your elderly pet has been waiting for.
Severe Illnesses Every pet owner dreads the day they learn their pet and best friend has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. As horrible as it can be to learn that the end may be near for their beloved family member, we must always keep in mind different ways to help make their last days or months on this earth as comfortable as possible. Thought CBD will not cure your pet, it will help reduce any suffering or pain they may be experiencing due to their illness. Not only can it be administered to as to reduce pain, but also to ease nerves and fear about their new situation. As well as sickness, animals with ailments often lose their appetites, which only causes them to weaken and fall more ill. CBD is proved to boost appetite and hunger, which can help your pet build strength and body foundation at a time it will need it most. Animals’ positive response to CBD has even led to vets recommending it so that animals can have a better palliative care experience. And because CBD doesn’t have overly harsh side effects, it is a much better and natural choice for your pet over traditional medication.
