Animals That May Benefit From CBD - Hometown Station |  KHTS FM 98.1 & AM 1220 - Santa Clarita Radio

People have discovered the health benefits of CBD, and we recently saw how it can benefit our pets too. The use of CBD oil is safe for animals as it does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. Because of this, it has become a great option for relieving pain and other symptoms in pets. In some cases, CBD is seen as a better option than using drugs, which can have several other side effects on our pets. Low doses of CBD can give your pet the relief they need without further complications.

Some people are surprised that pets benefit from using CBD products for issues like anxiety or inflammation. Below, you’ll learn more about different animals and how they responded to the positive effects of CBD treatments.

Rodents
The first animals tested with CBD were rodents such as mice and rats. Researchers have found that synthetic CBD is just as effective at reducing rat seizure severity as CBD. Other rodents such as hamsters, guinea pigs and ferrets are also known to benefit from the properties of CBD. These animals were the starting point for us to learn more about the effects of CBD, to see if they are beneficial for humans. Fortunately, no harmful side effects have been noted, proving that this treatment is safe when you can try other pets and people to relieve their pain or anxiety

dogs

Many dogs have benefited from using CBD to relieve their anxiety symptoms. Using a product like a CBD treat or a drop of oil can help manage your dog’s fear of separation or loud noises. It can also help alleviate physical symptoms and treat other health issues for your dog as he gets older. It’s best to get to the root of the problem by speaking to your veterinarian before taking any action on any other anti-inflammatory or digestive problem.

Cats

We have also seen cat health and behavior improve when it comes to giving cats CBD oil. Cats may experience improved levels of anxiety after taking CBD when it comes to separation or travel. You will also benefit from its anti-inflammatory properties. Some cats may not like the taste or get sick if they are not used to it. So it is best to contact your veterinarian and start with very small amounts.

Horses

In order for horses to feel the effects of CBD, they need higher doses than smaller animals. Many companies sell CBD equine products to help horses with a variety of problems that are similar to other pets. Firsthand reports from horse owners have reported that using CBD may reduce pain from arthritis or healing from an injury. They also noted less stress and anxiety from traveling and being locked in stables.

When it comes to finding products for your pet, you can contact your veterinarian or local pet stores to see what your options are. Another convenient option is to shop online at the Hemmfy CBD Store, where you can find a wide range of products and options. As always, it’s best to check with your veterinarian and do additional research before giving your pet anything they’re not used to.
