Happy Fourth of July as Vets Advise Pet Owners to Use CBD to Help Cats and Dogs Cope with Fireworks

With another year of Fourth of July celebrations underway, a common concern from pet owners is how their dogs are affected by fireworks. When fireworks are on display, on either large or small scale, dogs often shake in terror or hide away barking until they are over. This can cause some owners to not participate in fireworks, but there is still the concern of fireworks going off in the neighborhood. There may, however, be a solution worth trying. CBD, or cannabis oil, has been proven to help reduce or eliminate anxiety in humans and now the same is being recommended for dogs. Vets are advising pet owners administer CBD to their pets to help cope with stressful or anxiety-inducing situations.

A vet with the Texas Animal Medical Clinic first began prescribing CBD oil to her patients 6 months ago. Her first patient was a puppy that suffered from epilepsy as well as severe anxiety. The results were astounding, and the puppy no longer displayed symptoms of anxiety. The puppy was said to be more well-behaved and it even stopped having epileptic seizures. The puppy has continued to use CBD on an ongoing-basis to help maintain these results. For CBD to take effect for seizures, it typically takes 24-48 hours. For treatment of anxiety, it takes a much shorter time and can begin to work after only 30 minutes.

Because CBD is safe, natural, and does not contain the addictive THC found in marijuana, it is a good alternative medicine. Additionally, because it is natural, it is safe to use at a variety of doses in combination with other medications that dogs may already be taking for other health issues. What is important is that CBD become more readily available and across more states. Because it has not yet been approved by the FDA, it can be purchased from online retailers such as Amazon. CBD regulations are changing and becoming more inclusive which gives hope to vets and pet owners who could greatly benefit from the use of CBD.

Jane is a regular contributor who learned about the great benefits of CBD a few years ago after starting it herself. Impressed by its effects, she's interested in helping others learn about options that can be helpful for them.
