With the wag of their tail or a wiggle of their nose, your pet won your heart. Now, the pooch you swore would never sleep on the bed has their own special pillow and is an official member of your family. Just like a human member of the family, pets experience daily challenges in life. Fortunately, your cuddly canine companion can find peace in between bouts of chasing squirrels with the help of CBD for pets.
How Cannabinoids Work in Animals
Like you, your pet has an endocannabinoid system that uses naturally produced cannabinoids to help regulate pain, sleep, and the immune system to name a few. For pets suffering from anxiety, arthritis, or any other number of debilitating conditions, high-quality cannabidiol from trusted sources may lend a hand in their quality of life.
CBD for Pets: Common Health Concerns
Does your doggy give you big doe eyes every time you walk out the door, only for you to come home to piles of ripped up carpet, destroyed furniture, and mutilated shoes? You may be dealing with a bad case of anxiety. For some of our furry friends, it only manifests in particular situations, like a car ride or in the vet’s office. For others, it’s a daily occurence that can lead to many sleepless nights and chewed-up pillows. While anxiety treatments are the least studied condition for CBD treatments in dogs, there is evidence that it can help ease symptoms just as it does in humans.
For pups who live with pain from chronic conditions, CBD can ease inflammation and help them get back on their feet. For the nearly 25% of dogs who are diagnosed with arthritis in their lifetimes, cannabinoids can be a game changer. Even senior dogs can get a little more pep in their step when their aches and swelling are reduced.
CBD for pets has also been shown to help with seizures. For furry friends living with epilepsy, tinctures and oils may help reduce the number of episodes.
Choosing the Right Products for Your Pals
While concentrated hemp extracts are safe for pets, not all tinctures and oils are made the same. First, never give your pet a product that contains THC (also called full spectrum). Second, products should be free from additives. While humans may be able to handle these in moderation, they can be deadly for pups. The safest way to ensure that your pet is getting safe, natural CBD is to look for products that do extensive, third-party testing.
Every Allvane product is sent off for 3rd party testing through Green Scientific Labs in order to provide an impartial proof of quality and ingredients. Their process tests for the amount of CBD in addition to more than 60 chemicals, heavy metals and pesticides. These reports are available for viewing at any time by visiting verifyhemp.com/allvane, so you can always see the high-quality results for yourself.
That same quality assurance extends to our Canine Formula, a special blend of CBD isolate and coconut oil to make it easy for your pet to digest. Better yet, it’s deliciously bacon flavored to keep your pup coming back for more. Always begin with a small dose, then monitor and adjust the dosage accordingly.
