Many pets suffer from stress and anxiety that can be caused by different reasons. CBD could help your pet when dealing with the following issues:

  • Separation Anxiety
  • Thunderstorms
  • Travel
  • New surroundings
  • Introductions to new people and pets
  • Doggie daycare, vet, and grooming appointments

How do I know if my pet is suffering from separation anxiety or stress?

Separation anxiety describes pets who are extremely attached to their family members and become stressed when they are not with them. Your dog might start to whine or show nervousness by panting and trembling when you prepare to leave for work. You might notice your pet has become destructive by chewing on furniture, rugs, dog beds, etc. when you are away. Neighbors may report that your dog barks while you are gone or you may have discovered this on a pet monitor. Your dog may show signs of being aggressive to other pets or family members by growling or even biting. They may become very possessive of their food or toys. There can be a change in their house training habits.

How can I help my pet with anxiety and stress?

If your dog suffers from separation anxiety, start with very short periods of isolation, so they get used to you and the family not being around 24/7 and learn that you will return. Take them to a smaller room with their toys and give them a treat, so they look forward to coming to their safe place. Having the radio on with relaxing music can provide them with comfort.

What can I do if my pet gets stressed due to thunderstorms, travel, and new surroundings?

Take your dog for a walk or share some energetic play with your dog before you travel or introduce new people, pets, or experiences. Exercise helps reduce stress levels. When a thunderstorm looms, allow your dog to snuggle in a smaller room or their crate where they will feel more secure. It’s important to introduce the room or crate as a safe haven during non-stressful times, using treats and soft bedding to reassure them. Playing music or the TV in the background can also bring comfort to them.

Slow introductions for short periods are best when introducing your pet to new people or pets. You want them to feel loved and confident. Be sure to praise them and treat them for their efforts in dealing with these situations.

CBD helps keep pets calm and relaxed

CBD calms anxiety naturally by working with the body’s endocannabinoid system. CBD helps maintain contentment during travel, separation, thunderstorms, going to doggy daycare, vet or grooming appointments.

Signs of soreness and pain:

  • Difficulty standing up, stiffness, and moving slowly
  • Lack of interest in going for walks or playtime
  • No longer jumping up on the furniture
  • May start to lick legs, paws or other areas that hurt
  • Not wanting to be petted, avoiding interaction
  • Lack of appetite

If you notice any of the above signs or see other behavior changes that could indicate your dog is in pain, consult your vet. Your dog may be suffering from joint pain, digestive, dental, or skin-related issues. Pain can be reduced and managed so your furry family member can get back to enjoying life and being the great companion you have known. There are medications and supplements available, as well as physical therapy and acupuncture.

Pets that suffer from soreness or pain receive comfort from CBD

You may want to consider CBD, which helps with bone and joint health. CBD affects receptors in the brain and immune system in a manner that may reduce inflammation and pain, according to  research. It supports healthy joints, flexibility, and connective tissue health.
