We have already talked several times about the beneficial and therapeutic effects of cannabis for different conditions, diseases and pathologies in humans, but what about our furry friends?
does the use of cbd oil in pets also have positive effects? From here we are going to give you all the necessary information about the effect of the use of cbd oil in our pets and how its use is positive for the memory, the decrease of the pain, to improve the appetite and even the mobility.
The first thing to note is that the use of cbd in pets should be consulted in the first instance with a veterinary professional, as they are the ones who best know the clinical history of our furry friends and that medications prescribed by professionals should never be replaced by cbd oil, as hemp oil in pets is used as an analgesic and soothing which leads to improving the quality of life of pets fighting chronic or degenerative diseases.
Another very important thing to keep in mind is that in our pets THC is very dangerous and has such negative effects that can be a cause of death, so when administering cbd oil to our pets we must ensure that these products are 100% THC-free that are very difficult to find or with minimal levels of THC.
CBD for dogs
Dogs are the animal species with the highest amount of CB1 receptors (cannabinoid receptors located in the body, specifically in the central nervous system, kidneys, lungs and liver) so the use of cbd in dogs is very beneficial for treatments of inflammation, anxiety, cancer treatments, both epileptic attacks or seizures, skin allergies, stress, arthritis …
Our hairy people also have birthdays and thus have different ailments. One of the cases in which the cbd is most used in dogs is in those diagnosed with osteoarthritis, (deterioration of the cartilage that produces lameness and fatigue when standing up).
CBD for pets: cats
Our feline friends are much more delicate than canines when it comes to managing cbd. While dogs can consume it in different formats such as biscuits, feed etc, in cats you can only administer cbd in oil, since cats do not tolerate the fibers that the plant may contain.
In our cats health problems are usually symptoms or chronic diseases as a result of age and there have already been cases of cute kittens that with the use of cbd oil have improved cardiovascular problems, cancer, hyperthyroidism, seizures, appetite problems, chronic kidney disease, arthritis and inflammation.
We remind you that always as a complement to the treatment that the veterinarian has prescribed and never as a drug or substitute for a drug.
