I know from personal experience that our furry friends can feel much less like pets and more like children. They are a part of our family. So when we see them going through anxiety, for any reason, it breaks our heart and we want to do everything we can to help.
Our Corgi, Zoey, went through a really hard separation anxiety period when her best bud, and our first dog Curby passed away. She took Curby being gone reallllly hard and could not stand to be alone when we had to leave for work. She would destroy anything in her path to find someone to be with. On TWO different occasions she ripped through metal chicken wire that I had put over the gate of our back yard, reinforced with zip ties. She shredded right through it in an anxiety filled fit and ran off down the street. We tried a few different methods of calming her, including the anxiety collars you see in the stores and nothing seemed to work. In fact, she ate the collar! Finally we ended up caving and got her another dog pal to keep her company. Enter Stewie into our lives. A couple years later I came across a few different studies about the benefits that people enjoy from CBD and how they could also help animals. It was such a relief to find a natural method to help Zoey with her anxiety, and from our experience, it really works!
Dosing can be tricky, but method is not. Start by adding just a few drops of Hemp Extract Oil on a treat, let it soak in, then give it to your pet. No Problem! Serving size is what can be tricky, because even humans will react differently to different doses of CBD. Start by giving 3-5 drops on a daily basis, going up to 10 drops for large doses needed before traveling, fireworks, being home alone, or any other anxiety triggering time. (Use discretion based on the size of your pet.) If you are needing to save your precious CBD oil for yourself, your furry loved ones will get the benefit in non daily doses, but you might miss out on the benefits from extended CBD use including healthy coat, cancer prevention, arthritic pain relief and a reduction in inflammation.
