Stress in dogs and cats

It might seem incredible but dogs and cats also suffer from stress. This phenomenon is not so rare: if we highlight some behaviors associated with stress in our animals we will realize that it is more frequent than we think.

Let's give some examples: agitation , separation anxiety , itching , frequent or unjustified yelping , hyperactivity , destructiveness , skin problems , or excretion in unusual places. If your little friend exhibits several types of these behaviors, he may be experiencing a stressful time.

The events that cause these episodes of stress are very diverse: from the banal visit to the vet or an unplanned event, to the appearance of a new family member or a sudden move.

The resulting problems are numerous and can involve both pets and owners who may be racked by trying to explain these behaviors. Then, when a check-up at the vet confirms the diagnosis, two options may open up: taking medicines or resorting to natural remedies .

In case you choose the second option, CBD oil (like this one here by MamaMary) is one of the favorite treatments, but now we'll explain why.

The history of CBD

CBD is one of the substances, together with THC, that can be found in Cannabis plants. The main difference between the two is that CBD does not have psychotropic effects, which means that it is not a psychoactive substance , which "gets you high", which is why in many parts of the world it is used for medicinal purposes also for animals.

Although the narrative around this substance is controversial because it is often associated with that of THC, it has been legalized in many countries for years. In Canada, as in many other countries, for example, there is no restriction on the use of CBD substances which are available in many shops throughout the country and are used for therapeutic purposes by thousands of people.

In Italy the laws regulating the consumption of CBD are still confusing but the sale of the substance is permitted as long as it contains a THC level of less than 0.6%. Since 2016, its use for medicinal purposes has been legalized but even in this case the laws are nebulous and extremely variable from region to region.

What is CBD used for?

The fact that we hear so much about this substance is no coincidence: for years it has proven to be very strong in scientific research on animals, in particular for its analgesic, pain-relieving, anti-itching effects , and recently also for its beneficial effects for diseases such as arthrosis or epilepsy .

CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system which is present in the brain of dogs in the Claustrum area , a very strategic brain area that modulates cognitive, perceptive and motor functions . The fact that it has an effect in this area makes us understand how the action of CBD is very important and its potential enormous.

CBD, as previously mentioned, is not psychoactive, therefore, unlike THC, it produces sedating and pain-relieving effects and does not cause the psychotic effects that THC could produce on your little friend.

CBD oil

CBD oils are one way this substance presents itself. They are the favorite choice of many owners because:

  • There are brands that create CBD oils specifically for animals like ours , which is totally natural and organic.
  • They usually come with a very low concentration of CBD (5% or 10%) and zero THC contamination to ensure the health of the animal.
  • The product is 100% natural , which minimizes the possibility of unwanted effects.
  • Administration is also simpler than traditional medicines : you can put a few drops in the food bowl or in the water bowl and the animal won't notice anything.
  • Furthermore, the possibility of dosing quantities makes it a safe product .

The benefits of this substance on animals are numerous and it is often in first place among alternative medicines, so what are you waiting for to try it?
