Did you know pets can benefit from CBD oil, just like humans can? CBD oil for pets is a great way to improve your pet’s overall well-being and vitality. Though not all CBD is safe for animals. This is what you need to know about hemp oil for pets, before you give your furry friend some of yours.
CBD oil for pets
Just like humans, most animals that roam our earth possess an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This body’s own signaling system regulates close to all physiological processes in the body. Ranging from pain and mood regulation, to controlling hunger and temperature. All these processes are balanced by receptors which react to endocannabinoids - elements our bodies (and those of our pets) should naturally produce.
Though in some cases the body is not able to produce or process enough of these endocannabinoids on its own; resulting in all kinds of discomfort and ailments. In which case it can help to support your pet’s health with vegetal cannabinoid supplements like CBD hemp oil. Obviously, you’ll have to make sure the product you give your pet is safe to use for your furry friend.
In general, Cannabidiol (CBD) is safe for dogs, cats, and horses, amongst other animals. Though it is advised to not use CBD with animals that are pregnant or lactating. Nor can you give your pet just any cannabinoid product, for that matter. But why can’t you give your pet ‘human’ CBD oil?
Safe CBD oil for dogs and cats
Firstly, some CBD oils might contain too much CBD for your small animal. This makes it extremely difficult to give your pet the right amount of CBD. Logically, a small dog or cat needs much less CBD than a human needs to reach the desired effects. Moreover, giving pets ‘random' human CBD oil means the product could contain higher amounts of THC. This is a psychoactive cannabinoid we know from recreational cannabis, which can be very toxic to animals.
That is why Dutch Natural Healing CBD oil for pets is made from only the highest quality hemp plants; which we proudly produce and process ourselves. This guarantees that the pet CBD products we offer, are 100% safe to use. But in contrary to our regular CBD oil for humans, our hemp oil for pets is not 100% organic. Because instead of hemp seed oil, our CBD for pets comes with salmon oil as a carrier. CBD with salmon oil is tastier for your pet. Obviously this makes the product easier to administer and an overall nicer experience for your pet.
Furthermore, it is important to note that cats cannot handle terpenes like we humans do, or even dogs can. In fact, terpenes are highly toxic to cats. So obviously we make sure our CBD oil for cats is completely terpene-free. The CBD oil for dogs by Dutch Natural Healing does contain some terpenes, though. As they can process them just fine; and like us, greatly benefit from the aromatic substances found in the hemp plant.
Benefits hemp oil for pets
As mentioned before, CBD oil can be highly beneficial for pets. It will most likely have a positive effect on your pet’s vitality and overall well-being. Though we always advise pet owners to carefully read the instructions of the product; and in some cases we recommended to contact your veterinarian prior to giving your pet CBD.
There are quite a few possible benefits CBD oil might offer pets. As a pet owner, you obviously want your animal friend to feel the best possible. Our hemp oil for pets might offer many health benefits, like pain relief for pets suffering from chronic pain. But CBD oil may also help pets with bowel diseases, could reduce anxiety and possibly helps to treat seizures and epilepsy.
CBD for pets could also be helpful with treating other health conditions. According to research, hemp oil with CBD may provide pets with improved mobility; helping your furry friend if it struggles with hip and joint issues, for example. And in some cases, we’ve heard CBD drops may even help fight cancer cells! But we obviously don’t want to give you (or your pet) false hope. So if you’re curious to see if CBD might help your furry friend improve his or her life’s quality, ask us for advice or try:
