How CBD oil can help your pet: by helping to ease achy joints, soothe nausea, and lower anxiety.

Happy senior pet with cbd oilIf you have stumbled upon this article, How CBD oil can help your pet, because your most loyal companion is suffering from sore muscles, pain in their joints, anxiety, or nausea, and you would like a way to ease their discomfort then please continue reading to learn more about the benefits of Cannabidiol oil (or CBD.)

First, let's do a quick Q&A about CBD.

Q1. Is CBD oil legal to buy and sell in the U.S.?

CBD oil is extracted from hemp plants that have a negligible amount of THC, closer to zero percent than one. These plants have been used in multiple ways throughout the years, from making fabric to jewelry to liniments. The plants and oils extracted from them have no illegal compounds, so yes, CBD oil is legal to buy and sell in the U.S.

Q2. Is CBD oil safe to use on my pets?

As with any new regimen, start slowly. See if your dog or cat has a reaction to the oil. Most likely, as it is an all natural product, your pet will be A-O-Kay and hopefully benefit from the application of the oil.

Q3. Why should I buy your CBD oil versus other liniments on the market?

Here at Innovet we are not simply a storefront for animal care products; we have put thousands of man-hours into the research and development of leading animal care products. Feel free to read our 'about us' page if you'd like to learn more about our company. Also, ointments used by humans for achy muscles and joints often contain chemicals that could potentially harm your pet. Sadly, our pets who are suffering from arthritic pain, cancers, and anxiety do not have as many safe options as we humans.

Concerning other CBD oils on the market: the commodities lack quality. Many other oil companies claim to have a certain amount of pure CBD in their oils when in reality they do not. Our CBD is high-quality because we care about our customers and our pets. We do not sell items that we would not use on our own pets.

Q4. That sounds great, so how can my pet benefit from your product?

The Department of Biology and Molecular Biology, University Research Institute in Neurochemistry at Complutense University of Madrid published a study on CBD and had this to say:

CBD acts in some experimental models as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant,

anti-oxidant, anti-emetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic agent, and is therefore a

potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative

injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety and schizophrenia, respectively.

(Fernández-Ruiz, et al.)

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, this study was not performed with veterinarian medicine in mind, however, the research is indicative of the oil being helpful in easing discomforts in pets as well as humans (we are all animals, after all.) As more research is performed now that the bans on the study of the cannabis plants are being lifted we are sure to see more scientific proof that CBD indeed performs as the researchers at the Complutense University of Madrid have stated.

We hope you will give the oil a try, it is worth it to your most loyal companion if he or she is in moderate-severe pain from cancer, old age, getting hit by a vehicle, or whatever the case may be. Maybe your pet is not in pain, but anxious and you do not want to put her on doggy valiums - the answer is CBD oil.

Thank you for reading this article and we wish you the best of luck in caring for your beloved pets. To learn more about CBD oil, please see our product page for PurCBD+ or contact us.

I have a 9 yr old large dog who has been on Carprofen 75 mg once daily for the last 9 months. He is doing well on this. I notice some stiffness/soreness after we hike. I would like to switch him to CBD oil but need a little guidance as far has how much to give him and how to correctly ween him of the Carprofen

My cat is currently on kitty prozac and although I am not a fan of it, it was our last option after trying a lot of natural alternatives that did absolutely nothing for his anxiety and aggression.
Would this oil be safe to try while he is still taking the Rx?

I have 4 large dogs, 3 of whom don’t get along. I work 2 jobs and they are locked up separately. One of my dogs us about 7 and has severe anxiety. I gave him the CBD oil and ge has not peed in the house or torn up anything. I also have a 10 year old dof who is healthy but I’m noticing stiffness when he gets up. I am trying chondritin an glucosamine but want to try the CBD oil. My younger 2 dogs are 2 and 5 aND the 5 year old is destructive to his mattress when I’m gone. None of them will play with their toys when I’m not home. I really wish the CBD oil came in a larger bottle for people with large dogs because after 2 weeks of giving it to the older dogs I’m already running low. You may want to provide a larger size.
