Take a second and think about your dog… I bet that made you smile. We are so blessed to be able to have dogs in our lives. We don’t deserve them yet they love us anyway. If you looked up the word “loyalty” in the dictionary, there would be a picture of a dog next to it. Well, maybe not., but there should be. From the second you bring your pup home they become family, and your house is changed forever. They fall in love with you and want nothing more than to be by your side to make you feel loved and safe.
It is our responsibility that our dogs are pampered and well taken care of. They need a nutritious diet, plenty of water, exercise, and a lot of time outside where they can really be themselves. Unfortunately, all those things won’t help them if they are in pain or suffer from seizures and anxiety. The last thing any of us want is for our dogs to suffer. To make sure they don’t, people have been turning to CBD as treatments. A steady routine of CBD will greatly help your dog with these ailments.
There are many reports of CBD helping hyper and anxious dogs calm down. It helps them be less reactive to certain things. We can’t blame our dogs for being anxious, because they are constantly worried about us.
Wag that tail
So what is CBD and is it safe for my dog. Yes and Yes! Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many active compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another active compound and the most well-known, due to its psychoactive properties — it’s the compound that gets you “high.” Our CBD dog care products here at Sophia are certified to have less than 0.03% THC content. Which means you don’t have to worry about Fido getting baked and earring all the Kibbles.
Dr. Mark Verdino, senior vice president and chief of veterinary staff at North Shore Animal League America, claims that when dogs take CBD “they seem to be less reactive to low level pain stimuli, for example arthritis and things like that, when they take the product,” “And certain anxieties, they seem less reactive to certain things.”
Bottom line? CBD products for dogs – whether oil or in a treat – have been shown to anecdotally help with some issues like pain and anxiety, but too few studies are available to conclusively say they will help. It’s best to talk with your vet about your dog’s specific issues and heed the doctor’s recommendations. Here at Sophia we offer CBD oils and treats for fur babies of all sizes. Take a look at our online shop to check out the ingredients and specs on our products. While you are there please take a peak at our ironclad 3rd party COA. This is the proof that here at Sophia, we only use the finest quality CBD on the market to take care of all of your dogs needs.
