CBD Oil For Pet Health
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis and it’s this compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. Most CBD oils are the beneficial CBD without the THC, and they typically come from hemp, not marijuana. This means your dog won’t get a “buzz” from CBD oil, he’ll just get the relaxation without the intoxication. CBD acts by targeting receptors located in the brain, organs, central nervous system, and immune cells that stimulate relaxing effects.
Some benefits from using CBD oil include:
- treats seizures & epilepsy - relieves chronic pain & arthritis - boosts appetite - reduces anxiety - inflammation & allergies - boosts the immune system
Read on to hear about some real stories we have been told by clients who use CBD oil.
Case Study 1
I adopted my dog Daisy at 4 months from a shelter in NY. After having her for a day I noticed she had some development issues. I brought her to different vets who had different options on why she limped after laying down for a period of time and not being able to run. Also she was quite timid and loud noises scared her. After approximately 2 of CBD oil Daisy was running around and acting as a normal pup should. T.W.
Case Study 2
We were looking for treatment for our rescue dog Odie who suffers from arthritis, and CBD has changed his life. He is now able to get up easily and run again. I tell everyone they should use it for arthritis, anxiety etc.
Case Study 3
I have been administering CBD oil to my cat for a little over a month. While many use it on their pet for its calming effect, I am using CBD for its purported cancer inhibiting effect. While I noticed the calming effect immediately, I will not be able to comment on any cancer cell inhibition effects for several more months. A recent study has shown that test subjects in a controlled lab environment that received BOTH chemotherapy and CBD survived 3 times longer than subjects that had only received chemotherapy.
Case Study 4
After having knee surgery I started to use CDB oil. I had tried many anti inflammatory pills, as well as other therapeutic measures, and to this day I can’t get over how the CBD has changed my life. I went from being barely able to walk, to working out regularly, climbing stairs and ladders, and generally just feeling normal again. I have also used it to treat my dog, she had a water type blister on her head, which I have had aspirated at the vet a few times ($$). After a drop of CBD every day- it has completely disappeared!
Case Study 5
I began giving CBD oil to Badger in hopes of helping to reduce his anxiety. His Veterinarian felt that stress was the culprit, causing his bladder to spasm resulting in pain frequent visits to the litter box and urinating outside of the box. I started giving Badger CBD oil and to my amazement, within a day, Badger was no longer peeing outside the litter box. We noticed shortly thereafter that Badger was friendlier with us, and visitors to our home, was more relaxed, didn’t hide and was more affectionate.
Case Study 6
Our 12 year old dog, Rufus, has hip dysplasia. He has been treated with anti inflammatories but these can only be used short term as they are hard on the stomach. We have been looking for something he could take daily that would just make him more comfortable. We started him on CBD oil and we noticed an immediate difference; he was able to get up and down with more ease, he sleeps better and, as an extra bonus, he is no longer afraid of storms!
Case Study 7
I have been using CBD oil twice a day for about three months now for chronic pain and sleeplessness. I have noticed some improvement in my pain and I sleep a little bit better. It allows me to not have to take quite so much of my prescription medication. I think that the world needs to seriously look into making this more available to people as it has little or no side effects and helps people to alleviate their pain in a more natural way.
Case Study 8
My 14 year old Shih Tzu who was diagnosed with kidney failure back in 2017. Bijou’s energy was low and I had to do something so I purchased the product and gave it a try. Her results were amazing!
I started with the cookie format. Just one cookie is all it took and 24hrs later (which is just incredible) she was up and running down the hallway for her food. I was so impressed, that I bought the oil as well. Just to have, in case she starts to deteriorate. So if you are sitting on the fence and feeling you need to help your fur-baby, then give it a try. -DT
Case Study 9
Our bunny developed a nasal infection and was treated with antibiotics but the infection didn't completely clear up so he was given a stronger antibiotic. The second antibiotic cleared up the infection but he started losing weight and soon became very weak. We also noticed his face seemed lopsided. The vet ran tests but could find nothing wrong. He stayed overnight at the vet and they rehydrated him. We brought him home the next day. He kept getting worse we called another vet who told us everything had been done properly but that the infection once treated had released toxins into his blood stream which went to his brain and that he now had brain damage. He said our only hope was CBD oil. We started him on the CBD oil and there was a noticeable improvement the next day. This all started in August and now he is completely back to normal except for the lopsided face. He has gained back the weight he lost and is a happy, healthy bunny. -BM
