Can my Fur-babies (Cats & Dogs) have CBD Oil?
Cancalm® CBD Oil for Pets.
Most animals need only a small dose of CBD to benefit from the positive effects of cannabidiol, hemp-derived CBD oil won’t harm your dog or cat.
Dogs and the Endocannabinoid System
Cannabinoids found in Cancalm® hemp-derived products offer therapeutic effects by interacting with systems of receptors in our bodies called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
You experience these benefits of CBD thanks to this endocannabinoid system located throughout our central and peripheral nervous systems.
So why should your fur babies miss out on these benefits?!
Great news is your dogs and cats have this system too!
The ECS plays a vital role in regulating homeostasis within the body, mood, sleep patterns, appetite and generally keeps physiological processes in balance.
This system can be found in every other living creature on earth.
Choose the RIGHT CBD products for your fur-babies. Our pets deserve only the best! So before considering a CBD product for your pet, check out the facts!…
There is no need to be looking for products including artificial flavourings, claiming to ensure your pets see CBD oil as catnip! Or a big juicy steak! Keep an eye out for all natural ingredients.
Cancalm® can provide lab results on all our CBD hemp derived products. These are readily available upon request, as of course, you have the right to know what’s in your and your fur-babies CBD oil.
So what’s the benefits for your four-legged friends?
Many of our customers and pet owners report benefits such as, improved mobility, greater appearance of fur, less anxiety, even a complete reduction in seizures for pets with epilepsy, these are only to name a few!
Everyone knows an owner with an anxious pet, whether that be separation anxiety or general anxiety, you can spot them a mile off in the park…
Adding CBD into the mix of your pets diet can give beneficial calmness by helping to stabilise chemical imbalances in the brain. This is to do with interactions with various neurotransmitters within the brain, including serotonin and adenosine.
CBD can be utilised for stressful experiences, such as a trip to the vet, long car journeys or even the dreaded 5th of November….Guy Fawkes night- Fireworks!! – Cancalm® recommend not taking your dogs along to see an all singing all dancing firework display…
Our chocolate lab Ruby is terrified of fireworks, but giving her CBD oil helps her calm and settle, from running around panting, sweating and barking… she’s chilled out and relaxed on the sofa after a little CBD.
Improvements in mobility
Some pets, especially certain breeds such as our own Ruby a Chocolate Labrador are more susceptible to certain health conditions, like hip dysplasia and for older dogs stiff joints and a reduction in their general mobility is often an issue.
We understand this isn’t great to see happening to your fur-baby.
Therefore, introducing CBD offers animals a chance to regain the wag in their tails!
CBD shows promising results in reduction of joint pain and stiffness due to inflammation and is amongst the best natural anti-inflammatory remedy a pet can be given!
Digestion and Appetite
Some dogs begin to show less interest in food, especially with age or if they are unwell, this may result in a loss of appetite all together. Some may experience issues with digestion. Our cat Diamond certainly struggles with her digestion!
CBD oil for pets has the potential to increase appetite and decrease nausea by interacting with their ECS. The key to health… and especially healing and recovery is a healthy appetite.
Start your pet off with the lowest dose and keep note of any changes in your pets behaviour. These changes can usually be seen at around 30 minutes after ingestion. If unaffected after 60 minutes, you can try increasing their dosage. Every pet varies.
Dosage of CBD isn’t an exact science, but dosages are usually estimated in approximation to weight. Experimenting with a sensible dosage and frequency is always necessary to find the right suited dose for your four legged friend. An example of a dosage chart can be seen below for Cancalm® CBD Oil 500mg. These are general guidelines and will not apply 100% to every animal.
We recommend Cancalm® CBD Raw Oil to give your pet the gift of relaxation, balance and an over all better sense of well being.
