Hi everyone today I am going to change it up a little bit. If, you are anything like me, then you love your pets, and we want what’s best for them. I am big into natural alternatives, and the other day someone asked me what is a Natural Remedy For A Dog With Arthritis?
I usually don’t discuss natural alternatives for pets when I am talking to people, but arthritis is something which affects almost all of us as we get older including our pets. So today’s topic is about how CBD oil can help not only you but your pets.
Why Do Dogs Get Arthritis
- So what is Arthritis anyway and what causes it?
Arthritis is an umbrella term used to cover pain, stiffness, and swelling of the joints in humans and animals also known as inflammation. When a person or animals joints are inflamed or swollen, it can cause pain, stiffness and make it harder to move around.
Most of the time arthritis develops as a result of abnormal rubbing within the joints caused by joint instability such as a torn ligament, damage to the cartilage or damage caused by some trauma such as a broken or fractured bone. So animals develop arthritis just like us humans do.
Is It Safe To Give A Dog Pain Medicine
The most common treatment for arthritis in humans and pets is Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. NSAIDs help to reduce swelling, stiffness, and joint pain but I wouldn’t recommend taking them long term.
The common side effects of NSAIDs are a loss of appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, depression, and the more severe side effects can include kidney and liver failure, stomach and intestinal ulcers or even death. So if you love your pets, I would find a safer alternative such as CBD Oil.
Is CBD Oil Safe For Pets
My friend started giving his dog CBD Treats, and he also uses the CBD Pet Spray. He says his dog has a lot more energy and gets around better than it has in a very long time and seems to be much happier. So If, you have an older pet, CBD may put new life into them!
Studies have shown that CBD can help pets with loss of appetite, anxiety, aging, aching joints, cancer, glaucoma, inflammation, seizures, aggression, and neurological disorders. I will post the research links at the bottom of this post.
How Does CBD Oil Help Arthritis
There are a lot of studies and tests which still need to be performed on CBD Oils, but with all the research done so far it is looking like CBD Oil is good at reducing inflammation. Which in turn, reduces pain. I am not going to get into all the scientific jargon so I will post resources below.
Humans and other mammals have an endocannabinoid system. There are specific cannabinoid receptor sites located primarily in the brain, central nervous system, and peripheral organs, especially in the immune cells.
The endocannabinoid system is present in all vertebrates. CBD interacts similarly in our pets as it does in humans. CBD can be used to help treat inflammation and joint stiffness, and it also can help to manage mood and anxiety.
Pets experience anxiety and stress just like we do. CBD can help your older pets stay more active and youthful; it can also help relieve any anxiety due to loud noises or stressful conditions. Imagine having your older pet come to life again.
Maybe our CBD pet products are the answer. CBD Oils can have a positive impact on pets as well as humans.
As always I am here to help if I can so if you have any questions or comments I will be happy to respond. If you, are someone you know has tried any CBD products out on your pets I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
