Vets and pet owners have used CBD derived from purest hemp with very good results treating:
Dogs with skin issues, such as canine eczema, dandruff, acne, and dry nose, and fatty cysts respond well to the topical and internal use of hemp oil.
Joint Pain and Arthritis:
CBD benefited various types of arthritis, including joint damage and can reduce pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis.
CBD has calming and soothing properties, dogs with anxiety should also be able to benefit from these effects. In fact, a lot of dog parents swear by hemp oil when it comes to dog anxiety, such as separation anxiety.
Studies have shown that CBD hemp has “anticonvulsant properties in animal models and reduced seizure frequency in limited human trials.”
Nausea and Vomiting:
Proven to work on humans, if your dog has motion sickness, or is suffering from nausea and/or vomiting brought on by chemo, it is definitely worth trying to use hemp to alleviate the symptoms.
The anti-oxidative properties of hemp protect neurotoxicity, so it may help enhance cognitive functions in aging dogs.
There are also anecdotal reports on dog parents using hemp as a complementary treatment for their dogs with cancer. Talk to your vet if you want to use hemp in conjunction with other cancer treatment (e.g. chemotherapy).
Since there are different types of cancer, and dogs respond to treatment differently, hemp may or may not work for your dog. But it does provide an additional option.
