Why CBD Is Good For Dogs

When I tell you that Relaxed Pup makes dog treats that contain CBD, there will be some of you who wish to avoid such a thing. 

But actually, CBD is not just safe for dogs, it’s good for them! 

Today, I want to go over why CBD is good for your dog. Most of them are for the same reason, it’s good for you. 

Anxiety 

Just like humans, dogs can also suffer from anxiety. This is when they get so nervous, it becomes hard for them to do anything. 

This anxiety is often a result of past events such as being attacked by another dog or being kidnapped. 

When people have anxiety, CBD has properties that can calm us down and give us a boost of confidence. The same is true with dogs. 

Once your anxious dog takes CBD, they’ll be eager to make friends with everyone and play with all the other dogs. 

Arthritis 

When your dog gets older, he may suffer from arthritis. This is when the bones get weaker than they used to be, and simple tasks such as walking will be more of a struggle. 

CBD acts as pain relief, similar to paracetamol. It prevents the nerve endings from sending pain signals to the brain, and as a result, you stop being hurt. 

An arthritic dog who takes CBD is more likely to be able to move quicker,. .Therefore he will have a better chance of making new friends and can go on longer and more enjoyable walks. 

Aggression 

Another issue that dogs can have is aggression. 

Smaller breeds can be aggressive by nature, but other dogs become aggressive through their experience of the world. 

Nobody would want to be friends with an aggressive dog. CBD is excellent at calming your dog down and preventing them from becoming aggressive.

Aggression is often a side-effect of anxiety. Dogs will think that other dogs will want to hurt them and hurt them first before they can. 

But when given CBD, they won’t feel this way. They’ll look at the other dogs as their friend and want to play with them. 

It’s safe

Despite what some people might say, your dog taking CBD is not dangerous. 

While it makes sense why people would think this, multiple studies have shown that not only is CBD safe, but it has most of the same benefits to them that it has when we take it. 

And a lot of the time, it can even be more effective than common drugs as it doesn’t have many of the same side-effects. And the great thing about dogs is that if something is in a biscuit, you don’t need to worry about whether or not they’ll want it. 

Be careful

This is, of course, not to say you don’t need to be careful. 

If you give your dog CBD, make sure you’re giving them CBD at not THC. THC is the chemical in weed that gets you high. This can make your dog confused and nervous as they won’t be aware of what’s happening. 

Also, be careful with puppies. As with humans if taken by someone with a developing brain, CBD can impact brain development. But for the most part, puppies won’t be the dogs who need it. 

And be sure to talk to your vet if you’re worried that your dog might react negatively to CBD. 

Conclusion 

If your dog is struggling with their mental or physical health, one brilliant solution is to give them CBD. 

Since their body’s work in a similar way to ours, the effects that CBD will have on them is very similar to the impact it will have one us.
