In addition to supporting a wide range of health concerns, CBD can help combat inflammation in an animal’s body. Why is reducing inflammation so important for your dog or cat?



As part of an animal’s intelligent immune response, inflammation occurs in an attempt to remedy health issues. Whether in repairing tissues following injury, defending against pathogens, or repairing cells that have been damaged, the body uses inflammation to assist in healing. 

Inflammation can be caused by exposure to free radicals and environmental toxins, stress, digestion issues/leaky gut, sleep issues, recurring infections and more. 

However, although it essentially is a response for healing, when left unaddressed, long-term inflammation in your pet’s body can lead to serious health issues. Studies have shown that chronic inflammation results in nearly all major diseases and health concerns, including cardiovascular issues, neurological problems, cancers,  arthritis, immune issues, diabetes, obesity, skin problems, and organ issues. 


There is growing evidence in support of CBD supplementation for both chronic (symptoms for six weeks or more) and acute (symptoms for two weeks or less) inflammation. All cannabinoids, including CBD, are widely viewed as being anti-inflammatory.

With no side effects, CBD is a safe, non-intoxicating, plant-based and natural way to target inflammation in dogs, cats and horses. 

A 2018 neurological study found that CBD can attach to a mammal’s sensory receptors, and desensitize them. Because these receptors are responsible for inflammatory response, a decrease in inflammation was shown in result. 

Studies have also shown that CBD works to boost an animal’s immune system, reducing inflammation and pain associated with a range of conditions. 

According to Canadian-based  Aleafia Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Michael Verbora, an expert in cannabinoids, CBD is a fantastic ally for reducing inflammation, stating,  “CBD is known to be an anti-inflammatory and it is likely one of the safest medicines to provide such an effect.”


Our Fortify oils feature pure, CBD isolate. To formulate them, CBD is isolated from every other hemp compound into a crystal, and is pharmaceutical grade. There is nothing except the CBD molecule in this product, which makes it very easy to dose and measure.

Our Longevity treats, in addition to a daily dose of CBD, offer adaptogenic herbs that specifically target inflammation. Astragalus, Burdock Root and Turmeric are all known to naturally support inflammatory issues, and can be enjoyed by your pet in these tasty treats!

While you can use either Fortify oil or Longevity treats with fantastic results, we highly recommend doing what we call Combination Therapy. This simply means using oils and treats together. You’ll achieve the highest potency CBD with our oil, plus the added benefits of adaptogenic herbs in our treats. To begin Combination Therapy, we recommend getting your pet accustomed to our oils for two weeks first. You’ll administer oil only during this time, twice a day (every 12 hours). After 2 weeks on oil, you can replace one of your pet’s two oil doses with the allotted number of treats based on their weight. This means you’d administer oil with breakfast, and a treat(s) with or after dinner.
