Using CBD to Treat My Dog or Cat’s Anxiety

Many of us have pets with anxiety — be it rescues who’ve struggled with neglect or abuse, animals who have experienced negative interactions with other pets or humans, those who suffer from separation- or travel-related anxiety, or those who simply startle at thunderstorms or fireworks.

 

HOW CAN CBD HELP MITIGATE MY PET’S ANXIETY?

CBD offers a multitude of properties that support anxious and nervous tendencies. According to scientific studies, CBD has been found to relieve anxiety by the way it affects the paralimbic and limbic regions of an animal’s brain. 

Other studies show that CBD can help rebalance the Serotonin in an animal’s brain, which is a major factor in anxiety reduction. 

In 2015, researchers found that CBD helped ease panic, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social interaction anxiety, anxiousness affecting sleep, and post-traumatic stress disorder. 

HOW CAN I FURTHER BOOST CBD BENEFITS BY INCORPORATING PET TREATS?

CBD oil is effective on its own for treating anxiety. However, our pet treats can supplement a CBD oil program even more. This is because our pet treats — while including a daily dose of CBD — also feature various adaptogenic herbs, which can specifically target anxiousness in animals. 

It’s called Combination Therapy — incorporating both CBD oil and pet treats into an animal’s diet. 

In the case of anxiety, our Serenity treats are best to use, by offering the following adaptogenic herbs:

  • ASHWAGANDHA — a grounding, nourishing nerve tonic helps calm skittishness, reduce anxiety, and ease a wide variety of stresses. 
  • TULSI (HOLY BASIL) — an adaptogen that combats stress and supports balance in the nervous system.

HOW DO I BEGIN COMBINATION THERAPY FOR MY DOG OR CAT?

If you choose to use oil and treats together, we recommend getting your pet accustomed to oil first, by administering our recommended dose of oil for two weeks. You’ll administer oil only during this time, twice a day (every 12 hours).

After 2 weeks using oil, replace one of your pet’s two oil doses with the allotted number of treats based on their weight (this information can be found on product packaging as well as our website). 

An easy rule of thumb is to administer oil with breakfast, and treats with, or after, dinner.
