With Pet CBD becoming a hot button topic among pet owners, many are asking themselves if it’s the right choice for their furry family member. 

Pet CBD has a number of potential uses, from anxious pets to an older pet experiencing daily pain; maybe your pet fears thunderstorms and loud noises. There are a wide variety of health and wellness issues pet CBD can help address and one thing we know for sure is that CBD oil offers a natural alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals.

You may be wondering, what actually is CBD? 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found within the cannabis plant, and in Kitsie products specifically, the hemp plant. Research has shown that CBD makes up almost 40% of these plants’ natural extracts and has the potential to be viable in both human and animal medicine. Pet CBD is a part of science’s natural progression down the road of therapeutic discovery.

Cannabis is most widely known and recognized for another compound found within the plant, called THC. THC is what produces the “high” that most people think of when we refer to cannabis. There is a special process that occurs to separate CBD from the cannabis plant, which results in the extraction of the CBD compound.

This compound is full of amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, THC-free and has many other beneficial elements. You can be sure to find these safe and naturally occurring properties when you implement Kitsie into your pet’s daily life with the use of our pet CBD products.

So, why CBD for your pet? Is it actually going to help do anything to make your furry friend’s life better?

Well here are the top 5 reasons to consider using CBD for your pet:

1. Pet CBD Helps With Stress and Anxiety

One of the most popular reasons we see people using pet CBD for their animals is because they have tried almost everything and anything you could think of to reduce their pet’s anxiety and stress. Your pet may be generally anxious all the time, or maybe a past event caused long-term anxiety. Regardless, approximately 70% of dogs alone suffer from some form of anxiety. Symptoms include: excessive barking or meowing, separation anxiety, biting people, things, or toys excessively, defecating and urinating, shaking and other behaviors that may be seen as aggressive.  

Although we cannot verbally communicate with dogs, nor can we read their minds - we can collect research and evidence through trials, like those related to pet CBD, which may add to your dog’s quality of life. Research has shown time and time again that pet CBD has the potential to help dogs and other pets by decreasing feelings of anxiety and stress. It is also important to mention that CBD has been shown in research to help humans achieve calm and lower levels of anxiety, as well. 

2. Pet CBD can Help With Nausea

Do you have a pet who tends to get sick on car rides? Maybe they are experiencing nausea or appetite changes from medications or treatment plans? If so, CBD for your pet may be something to consider.

With the help of research, there have been early signs that pet CBD has been successful at combating symptoms of nausea, vomiting and can help to increase appetite. This is done through a complex process in the brain where CBD stimulates the receptors in the brain that reduce anxiety, the 5-HT1A receptors. Through the activation of this receptor, pet CBD has the ability to reduce the sensation of nausea and other anxiety-related traits. 

Although there are many antiemetic (anti-vomiting) medications for animals that you can buy off the shelf, many are not 100% natural and come with their own list of risks and possible side effects. Many synthetic medications have side-effects far worse than the symptoms you are trying to treat with pet CBD!

Kitsie All-Natural Pet CBD helps you avoid those risks and unnecessary complications.

Pet CBD oil has been seen used in conjunction with vet administered cancer treatment plans, as nausea is often a major concern with this type of diagnosis. Although pet CBD alone has not been proven to cure cancer, it has been found to sooth many of the unpleasant side effects, such as nausea, pain and loss of appetite that come alongside treatment plans. 

The fact that pet CBD can help aid in the treatment of cancer in pets is extremely important due to the impact this makes on your pet’s quality of life and how hard it can be to deal with these medical conditions as an owner. 

Over 6 millions dogs and 6 million cats are diagnosed with cancer every year in the US - almost 4x the rate of diagnosis in humans.

3. Pet CBD Helps to Reduce Inflammation and Autoimmune Diseases

Pet CBD may be a great addition in helping your furry companion mange the pain and inflammation that comes along with arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or chronic musculoskeletal pain. Through a vast amount of human and laboratory animal research, CBD oil has continuously played a role in helping support the immune system. The CBD compound may lower the production rate of inflammatory cytokines that trigger autoimmune diseases, allergies and other sensitivities your pet may experience.

4. Pet CBD Helps With Pain Relief

If your pet has an injury, or even if your pet is getting older, they are likely suffering from pain on a daily basis. As a pet owner, we want to do anything we can reduce discomfort and make our furry friends as happy and comfortable as possible. Pet CBD has been widely known for its ability to aid in pain relief. As mentioned previously, CBD helps with combating and fighting inflammation in the body, this in turn helps to alleviate pain. 

It is important to note that CBD has many modalities for relieving pain. Different from how pet CBD manages nausea, for general pain relief, pet CBD increases the levels of a neurotransmitter called anandamide. This neurotransmitter is known to help suppress pain stimuli, improve memory, and help regulate appetite.

5. Pet CBD Helps with Heart Health

Last but not least, pet CBD oil can be a great addition to your pet’s supplements when it comes to keeping their heart happy and healthy. Research has continuously proven that the CBD compound has the ability to aid in the repairing process when it comes to damaged blood vessels. 

In addition, pet CBD has been noted to help with irregular heartbeats as well as lower blood pressure in pets who suffer from hypertension. 

If you are wondering if pet CBD is really safe to give to your pet, the simple answer to this question is: yes. That being said, it is important that you choose only high quality pet CBD oil products, such as those from Kitsie.

By choosing a product like Kitsie for your pet, you are ensuring the product you are using is 100% natural and will only contain trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). This will allow all the amazing properties and benefits that pet CBD has to offer without your pet experiencing any psychoactive effects associated with THC. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) has deemed CBD for your pet safe. Moreover, they have acknowledged the benefits that come along with adding CBD into your pet’s life. If you still have concerns about pet CBD and administering it to your beloved animals the option with your veterinarian.

You veterinary professional of choice may also be able to guide you through proper dosage amounts in relation to your pets condition, weight, age and so on.
