How CBD helps an Anxious dog

Updated: May 19, 2019

CBD is extremely helpful in aiding pets situational anxiety! Do you ever look at your dog or cat during a thunderstorm or when someone has just knocked on the door, and see that fearful look in their eyes? A lot of times our pets cannot control their anxiety or fear. During the holidays when people are in scary costumes or when you’re traveling, our furry friends are often scared. Healthier Pet Health Drops are the best solution for your pet’s situational anxiety prevention.


How does CBD help your pets' anxiety?

Cannabidiol (CBD) from the hemp plant has been known to work wonders for people and with pets who experience anxiety. There are multiple scientific studies showing the positive effects of CBD for a multitude of health conditions - including pain management and anxiety reduction.

When CBD enters a mammals endocannabinoid system, specific receptors found throughout the body are activated. These are the only receptors in the body that allow for two-way communication between body systems. Simply put, CBD makes it easier for the body to calm down and relieve tension and temporary anxiety, because receptors in the endocannabinoid system can now “speak” to each other.

Situational Anxiety and CBD

There are two kinds of anxiety experienced by pets, behavioural and situational. Most of the time our pets experience situational anxiety, and not something that your pet is experiencing all of the time. Common activities which cause situational anxiety in our pets are:

  • Lightning/Thunderstorms

  • Travel

  • Having company over

  • Fireworks

CBD is extremely helpful in aiding situational anxiety because of its soothing and calming properties.

Behavioural Anxiety and CBD

Behavioural anxiety, like separation anxiety or increased aggression, need professional training and can’t be fixed by using CBD products alone. CBD products should be administered as part of training, to help your pet relax and stay calm, however the products alone can’t alter your pet’s personality or eliminate behavioural anxiety.

Choose Healthier Pet

Whether you’re looking to prevent pet situational anxiety during seasonal fireworks or if you’re traveling with your pet, Healthier Pet Health Drops will help. Make sure that you start giving it to your pets as soon as possible so their endocannabinoid system can function at optimal levels. We suggest administering our Health Drops to your furry friends about 30 minutes before any of the holiday fun begins, splitting the recommended dosage between the AM/PM and outside of mealtimes.

When you're ready to help your pet to relax in stressful situations and begin training for the long term choose Healthier Pet Health Drops.
