There is no denying the fact that we humans love celebrations and holidays. But from strangers knocking on the door to fireworks thundering the entire house, our dogs and cats aren’t the biggest fans of holidays.
And that’s putting it lightly. Not only can holidays like New Year's Eve cause unrelenting stress, holidays celebrated with fireworks see the highest rates of our dogs and cats going missing.
Fireworks are downright stressful for our pets, even for the ones who don’t normally display a sensitivity to loud noises. Fireworks close by can rip and tear at their sensitive eardrums, then their fantastic hearing range lets them hear fireworks miles from the house, causing a dizzying array of constant bangs and booms. But thanks to CBD, your pet no longer has to suffer.
CBD is the logical conclusion to a big problem nearly every dog and cat struggles with. Not only is research finding CBD can help with seemingly all forms of anxiety, CBD can be used regularly or on occasion — making it perfect to give for just the holidays.
How CBD Can Help Your Pet This New Year’s Eve:
- Reduces Anxiety
- Calms Hypersensitivity
- Non-Intoxicating Anxiety Aid
- Doesn’t Cause Changes In Personality
- Reduces Risk Of Your Pet Going Missing/Running Away
How CBD Works
CBD products work by supporting the Endocannabinoid system (ECS), a wellness center in the body that cares for various regulatory systems. Just like how we as a whole can become tired after a long day of work, so can the regulatory systems. This is where the ECS comes in, rejuvenating and rebalancing them.
Unfortunately, the ECS doesn’t have anything big to support it like it supports others. And when a regulatory system is under a lot of stress, the ECS can become exhausted. Not only does this leave the overwhelmed regulatory system valuable, but it also leaves other systems at risk for developing issues. This can be why pain can feel more severe when anxious or why those under constant stress fall sick more often.
But this is where CBD comes in to help. CBD products, derived from hemp, feature hundreds of different compounds called cannabinoids that can support the ECS in a similar way it supports the immune, nervous, and other regulatory systems.
Why CBD Can Be Amazing For Your Pet This New Year’s Eve
The constant barrage of fireworks, loud noises, and rambunctiousness can cause an all-out assault on your pet’s nervous system during NYE. Besides interpreting pain, the nervous system is responsible for interpreting whether something is dangerous or simply harmless. That becomes very difficult for your pet to do during holidays like NYE.
This results in a flood of adrenaline and norepinephrine being released. When that happens, not only do stress triggers like fireworks feel even worse, your pet can get nervous over things they never have before. To add insult to injury, this can leave their health valuable to an array of issues for weeks after.
Thankfully, by supporting the ECS, CBD can support it in stopping the rampant and poorly controlled release of adrenaline and norepinephrine, reducing the immense pressure on your pet that they feel during NYE.
Is CBD Right For Your Pet This New Year’s?
Are you looking for a way to reduce your pet’s anxiety for holidays like New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July with a non-prescription and natural calming aid that rivals the best anxiety aids? Then CBD is most likely purrfect for your pet.
Any pet with an ECS, which includes all mammals, can experience the incredible benefits of CBD. That may not only help with anxiety but also pain, inflammation, and digestive issues thanks to its homeostatic driving abilities. This is why you’ll see most pet owners give their pets CBD daily year-round.
And with the increase in fireworks celebrations that start and last weeks before and after the holiday, giving your pet CBD daily, even to those that aren’t traditionally anxious, can be a very smart move for their health.
How To Give CBD To Your Pet?
Some pets, regardless of breed or type, will see the full effects of CBD sooner than others. As such, if you're unfamiliar with how fast CBD works for your pet, we suggest starting daily administrations 1 to 2 weeks before the stressful holiday/event.
Typically, when given on a relatively empty stomach, CBD effects start within 20 to 60 minutes — otherwise, expect 45 to 90 minutes.
