  • Anxiety & Your Dog: What Can CBD Do to Help?

    dog Anxiety treatment with cbd oil

    Just like humans, anxiety can be a crippling condition for your dog. What’s worse is watching your dog go through symptoms of anxiety without knowing how to help them feel better. Many pet owners will go to the vet and get treatments prescribed to their dog, but more often than not, those treatments don’t work. If they do work, they tend to bring on unwanted side effects like weight loss and irritability, which in turn makes it hard to say the medication actually helped the pup.

    There’s another option to look into now, and it’s called CBD oil.


    CBD oil is a fast-working, all-natural product that can reduce your dog’s symptoms of anxiety without raising red flags to some of those unwanted side effects. We’ll get into that later, though.
    First, let’s learn a little bit about the anxiety your dog faces on a day-to-day basis.

    How does anxiety affect dogs?

    Much like humans, dogs face anxiety on a normal basis. They experience symptoms of stress and fear just like we do and that anxiety is just a natural response to the feelings they are having. The problem is when your dog has SO much anxiety, they can’t function normally.
    Some dogs have to deal with constant anxiety, and because they can’t speak up and talk about what’s wrong, they tend to act and react in strange ways. It may seem like they shouldn’t get worried as much as they do because they live such simple lives, but that’s not the case. Their emotions are very similar to ours. Specifically speaking, the type of anxiety a dog will typically have is separation anxiety. That’s not to say that type of anxiety is the only anxiety they face, as many dogs who have been beaten or hit in the past will develop some sort of anxiety, too. Separation anxiety is just the most common.
    If your dog does experience this type or any type of anxiety, symptoms would be as follows:

    • Panting
    • Pacing
    • Whining
    • Trembling
    • Barking
    • Aggression

    If separation anxiety is the diagnosis, your dog will likely urinate in the house despite being trained. They will typically express destructive behavior, too.

    What are the treatment options?

    When it comes to anxiety, there’s no one treatment method that can necessarily work. Some vets prescribe medications like Ativan, others will prescribe something like Elavil, and still, others will prescribe something like Prozac. No matter what they prescribe, there will still be side effects to follow. Some side effects are as follows:

    • Diarrhea
    • Vomiting
    • Lethargy
    • Drowsiness
    • Increased or decreased appetite
    • Upset stomach
    • Increased aggression

    There is another way, though. Try CBD oil.
    CBD oil contains a very powerful anti-anxiety supplement. Some research has stated that CBD oil stimulates serotonin production, therefore lowering levels of anxiety and fear and heightening the overall mood.
    Additionally, CBD oil is said to promote the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus, which is also proven to lower levels of anxiety.
