Benefits of CBD Oil for Pets
The benefits listed below have all been studied and researched by sources independent from Vitality CBD. Vitality CBD does not make any specific health claims for our products and their potential benefits.
1. Anxiety Relief
If your pet suffers from social anxiety, CBD oil may be a holistic solution. CBD oil has been shown to reduce social anxiety in animals. An anxious pet can cause frustrations for the pets owner. Offering CBD to your pet can settle the pet into a peaceful and calmer space.
2. Stress Relief
Pets can experience stress in the same ways humans do. CBD can be very relaxing and also energizing - which can help to calm down your stressed-out pet.
3. Reduce Cancer Symptoms
There have been ongoing studies on the anti-tumor effects - however they are inconclusive. CBD has been found to boost the efficiency of radiotherapy and has shown to relieve chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. CBD oil may offer relief for your pet should they be suffering from cancer complications.
4. Seizures in pets
Some pets may experience periodic seizures, while others unfortunately have constant epilepsy. A common treatment for pets that experience seizures is phenobarbital, but this could cause severe negative effects. CBD has been shown to treat seizures and can offer significant relief for your pet.
5. Pain Relief
Studies have shown CBD is effective in treating different pain in animals. CBD does not cause addiction over time and it may be of help to your pet.
6. Relieves Autoimmune Issues
Studies have shown that CBD can suppress TH17 dominance, which is a major cause of autoimmune diseases.
7. Neuodegenerative Issues
Pets can be affected by degenerative diseases when they age. Studies have shown that CBD can help in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
8. Heart Health
A study has shown that CBD promotes heart health; this is done by preventing the damage of the heart capillaries and the reduction of stress and anxiety that could raise their blood pressure.
9. Fur and Skin Health
CBD's antibacterial and anti fungal effects can help protect them from infection when applied on the skin and fur of your pet.
10. Appetite and Nausea
If your pet has a decrease in their appetite, CBD can help them relax enough to eat. It has also been shown to help with vomiting and nausea.
What is the correct dosage?
There is no "ideal" CBD dosage for pets. There are recommended dosages based on your pets current weight. Start with the lowest recommended dosage and work your way up until you find your pets "sweet spot".
