One of the biggest new "breakthroughs" in canine natural medicine is the use of CBD oils and treats. CBD is a chemical component found in the cannabis plant. Now, I know what you're probably thinking - why would I want to give my dog marijuana? Well, fear not, CBD is not the psychoactive stimulus chemical found in cannabis - that's THC. CBD, on the other hand, is great for pain management and anxiety management in dogs.
What are the benefits of CBD?
Incorporating CBD based holistic medicine into your dog's routine is extremely beneficial for his or her overall health. It's a great natural remedy for many common health issues that dogs have. Some examples include:
- Anxiety - interacts with the nervous system to provide calming sensations
- Arthritis and joint pain - soothes inflammation and provides pain relief at the same time
- Loss of appetite - reduces nausea and promotes healthy digestion
- Aggressive behavior - reduces anxiety in stressful situations, thus preventing dogs from lashing out
