CBD oil for Hyperactive Dogs

CBD oil for Hyperactive Dogs
Having a hyperactive dog can be stressful. Random bursts of energy, chewed-up shoes, and general misbehavior can really test your patience. Fortunately, hyperactivity in dogs is usually easy to treat.

CBD oil can reduce hyperactivity in dogs. But before we get into that, let’s look at what hyperactivity is.

What is hyperactivity in dogs?

When most people use the term ‘hyperactive’ to describe their dog, they usually mean that their dog:

  • Struggles with impulse control
  • Has a lot of energy
  • Doesn’t behave and/or listen to instructions
  • Struggles to stay calm

This behavior could be caused by a few things:

  • Boredom
  • A lack of attention
  • A poor diet
  • Anxiety and nervousness

How do you treat hyperactivity in dogs?

Depending on the cause of the behavior, hyperactivity in dogs is generally easy to treat.

Exercise

Your dog may need more exercise – both physical and mental.

Physical exercise can include regular walks, running off-leash, and playing games like ‘go fetch’. Your dog might also enjoy swimming and puppy play-dates with other friendly dogs.

Mental exercise is essential for all dogs. Bring them new and exciting, teach them new tricks, and change their walking routine often. Your dog needs to use their ability to smell, so let them take their time sniffing a new area on your walks. This is also a form of mental stimulation.

Attention

Your dog might be hyperactive because they feel like they’re not getting enough attention or affection. This is common after a new pet or baby joins the family. Often, they act out so that you pay attention to them.

To remind them of your love, pay attention to them when they’re behaving and when they’re sitting quietly and relaxing.

Better diet

Some cheap dog foods contain ‘filler’ ingredients such as sugars. If your dog’s body isn’t getting enough nutrients, their brain won’t function properly – and this can lead to hyperactivity. Use a vet-recommended brand of food and supplement your dog’s diet with fresh food.

CBD oil

If your dog is hyperactive because of anxiety, there are a few different ways to treat them. One effective treatment for anxiety in dogs is CBD oil. It keeps your dog calm.

CBD oil is a natural, beneficial treatment for dogs. Research shows that it is safe for dogs. A survey of US veterinarians showed that many vets felt that CBD effectively relieved anxiety in dogs.

It’s always best to speak to your veterinarian before using CBD oil on your pets.

How to use CBD oil to treat hyperactivity in dogs

If you want to treat your dog’s hyperactivity with CBD oil, be sure to use a reputable brand of oil. Get the dosage right – start small and gradually increase it, using your dog’s weight as a guide. Take a look at our CBD dosage chart for help.

Ideally, you should give your dog a small amount of CBD every day. This keeps them calm and supports their general health.

Your dog might prefer eating CBD treats instead of oil drops. You can buy CBD dog treats online, or make your own.

If you have any concerns about your dog, speak to your veterinarian – they’re there to support your dog’s health and happiness, just as you are!
