Can CBD Help With My Injured Pet?

Published on

When we let a pet into our home, we make a vow to protect them and love them as they were one of the family. We try to make sure that harm doesn’t come their way but being unpredictable creatures they somehow find a way to do it anyway. Many pet owners today make sure they have CBD pet treats or oral spray on hand for these occasions.

You can use CBD for your pet because all mammals have an endocannabinoid system. One reason many pet owners are switching to CBD instead of over-the-counter medication for their pets is that CBD doesn’t have as many side effects and risks. Cannabidiol works as an excellent treatment for small injuries helping to fight off bacteria, reduce swelling, and it can help make the pain less severe.

If your cat comes back wounded from a brawl with the neighbor’s tabby, the first thing you should do is take them to the vet to make sure there hasn’t been any serious damage. After you have assessed the situation, your pet might be in pain and distress. Your pet may become distant and erratic but using CBD oral spray or tinctures can help calm them down. If your pet has injured themselves and they have begun swelling in that injured area, giving them CBD will help the swelling die down and their sensitivity to pain decrease.

When giving CBD to your pet, make sure to consult your vet especially when they are taking any other medications. Just like us, they metabolize their medicine, and it is dispersed into their body. CBD alters your body’s metabolism, so adjustments may need to be made and discussed. You also need to monitor them closely when you first begin or raise their dose to make sure you don’t notice any side-effects, just like you would with any medicine.

 

It’s crucial you get the CBD pet products and not just any tincture on the market. Humans can handle and benefit from many essential oils that are added to sprays and tinctures that can be harmful to animals.

If you have a pet that eats anything and everything, our CBD treats are perfect for general health dosing as well as helping with injuries. If your pet only eats gourmet food only sold in Italy, then tinctures and CBD oral sprays will be a more comfortable method. You can apply the tincture or spray to the inside of their mouth and not have to worry about them spitting it out or choking on it. Be sure to stop by our shop today!
