cbd for puppies
Can you give CBD to puppies?
The short answer is YES! It is safe to give puppies above 8-weeks CBD. Based on several studies conducted by the World Health Association, CBD oils and treats are safe for dogs of all ages and can provide certain benefits to support dog health. But the question we often get asked is WHY?
Why should you give puppies CBD?
CBD has the same effect on puppies as it does on adult dogs. It’s most commonly used in adult dogs to help ease anxiety and relieve joint pain. And while your 8-week old pup most likely does not experience arthritis or joint issues, there are several other circumstances where CBD can help your puppy.
1. Alleviate Teething Pain:
Teething is painful. The constant gnawing and chewing can cause inflammation in their gums. CBD can help alleviate this pain and reduce inflammation. This will support good behavior, improve their mood, prevent destructive behavior, and lead to a long night’s rest (for you and the pup).
2. Anxiety and Hyperactivity:
CBD promotes relaxation and calmness. Puppies with separation anxiety, anxiety in stressful situations (long car rides/groomers/thunderstorms), or with hyperactive tendencies can benefit from CBD. CBD helps to balance mood and relieve stress so your puppy can feel more energized and happy.
3. Support a Healthy Immune System:
A puppy’s immune system is not fully developed until they are at least 5 months, which means they are more prone to sickness and health issues. CBD is a great supplement to improve their immune health. CBD has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help regulate a healthy immune system!
4. Relieve Allergies:
Dogs develop allergies at a young age. CBD has properties to lower histamine levels and help prevent allergies. CBD can help relieve, reduce and prevent seasonal allergies, food allergies, and contact allergies.
