Veterinarians have taken to prescribing prescription Alprazolam for dogs who are spooked easily by loud noises or suffer from other anxiety issues. Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine commonly marketed as 'Xanax' for anxiety in humans. Though prescription Alprazolam can effectively reduce instances of anxiety in dogs, there are many issues that need to be brought up when giving your dog a drug that can cause dependence. Alprazolam can cause withdrawal symptoms in dogs if given for an extended period of time, and therefore isn't a reliable solution to relieving symptoms of anxiety.
There's a new treatment available that doesn't cause dependence issues or withdrawal and isn't a prescription drug. CBD oil is an all-natural way to relieve symptoms of your dog's anxiety while also resting reassured that your pup won't have any negative or ill effects from treatment. Contrary to popular belief, CBD oil is not at all related to the active hallucinogen in marijuana known as tetrahydrocannibinol (THC). THC is a psychoactive substance found in marijuana. While CBD is also found in marijuana, CBD oil is 100% pure CBD, which has no restrictions on sale or usage from the Food and Drug Administration. Humans often use CBD oil to relieve pain symptoms, thus reducing the dependence on narcotic opiates.
CBD oil is easy to purchase and doesn't require a prescription from a physician or veterinarian. It can easily be purchased online and delivered right to your doorstep without any qualms about the legality of usage. When substituted for Alprazolam to relieve anxiety in dogs, the benefits are innumerable. That is, there are no drug interaction issues if your pet is older and on a course of medicines. There is no risk of physiological dependence or withdrawal when using CBD oil for your pet's anxiety issues. And it's very easy to get your dog to consume the oil, as it can be laden on top of food or a doggy treat.
