PETS

Our furry family, cats and dogs

In many homes, pets are a fundamental part of the family. Animals such as dogs or cats live with children and adults with whom they share all their experiences.

What happens to our furry pets?

We’re not the only ones who suffer from anxiety, fear or pain: our furry ones too. The difference is that they are experts at suffering without complaining. That’s why we have to watch out for them doing weird little things to make us realize that something is wrong.

Don’t you know if they’re wrong? Look at these signs:

  • They shake a lot.
  • They cry
  • Gasp
  • Urinate or defecate in unusual places
  • They whine or bark a lot
  • They lick themselves a lot.
  • They hide themselves for a long time

If all this sounds familiar, read on to see how our bugs can benefit from CBD too.

Endocannabinoid system in pets

Today in the canine and cat world, the popularity of CBD is increasing more and more because owners see it as a natural option to relieve their symptoms.

Maybe the first question that crosses your mind is how can this oil help me and my pet too? Is it true?

Well, the answer is yes! This is because we are not the only ones who have an endocannabinoid system, in fact, all mammals do, including our hairy babies. That is to say, their bodies are also designed to work with cannabinoids like CBD. 

The difference, is that it does not affect them the same way that to us, that is to say, that as they are smaller and have more delicate systems, it is probable that they do not need a dose as great as ours. But it is the same as with people: there is no ideal dose, each pet is different and it takes time to find the dose. 

But please do not confuse CBD with THC, the intoxicating part of cannabis. You should never give THC to your pet because it is very very toxic to them.

But to what we go: In that it can help the CBD to your furry ones?

1. Reduces pain and inflammation

The pet decreases pain sensations.

2. Stimulates appetite

Many diseases make pets lose their appetite, resulting in a worse appetite and a much more deteriorated physical appearance. The CBD, helps these animals recover their appetite, so that little by little they will have more strength and energy.

3. Anticonvulsant

There are dog breeds that are often prone to epilepsy and other similar diseases. Thanks to the CBD, the seizures have decreased considerably.

4. Calming the nausea

It helps us that the pets don’t get dizzy when they go on car trips.

5. Anxiolytic and Antidepressant

Especially dogs, are prone to suffer from anxiety and depression, studies and doctors have shown that the CBD is of great help for animals suffering from these disorders, as this joins prescribers that regulate serotonin, achieving a stabilization of the enzymes that cause this disease.

6. Improves skin and hair health

7. Antibacterial

8. Relieves chronic pain and joint

9. Stimulates bone growth

10. Stress Reliever

How do I introduce CBD to my pet?

Dose

In general it is recommended to start with 0.5 – 5 mg (1 or 2 drops of 5% CBD) of CBD for every 4.5 kilos, twice a day. And, as always, the ideal is to start with little and slowly increase the dose every 4 or 7 days, if necessary.

Also keep in mind, that under certain circumstances you may need a higher dose.

How can I give it to them?

Depending on your pet, you can put it directly in its mouth or not. Here are a few tricks in case it is one of the latter:

Put a little drop in a pet’s mouth that he likes a lot.
Mix it in his food.
Put it on a bone, malt or a toy you usually use.
Watch out! You may have seen animal treats with CBD. It should be noted that they are usually baked and the effectiveness of CBD may decrease.

How do I know if it’s working?

Many of you think it’s not working when it really is. We remind you that the greatest benefit is to feel good and normal. Oh, but my pet doesn’t talk! Well, it’s true, look at this:

  • He cries less
  • Your mobility has improved
  • Sleep better
  • It hides less

If our pets don’t feel well, it can be a challenge because they can’t tell us what’s wrong. But just like humans, most pets can benefit from a daily dose of high-quality hemp oil. From stress and anxiety to recovery, hemp can help.

Every animal has a circulatory system. What many of us don’t know is that animals also have an endocannabinoid system. This system has an extensive network of receptors that help animals maintain overall well-being. Q PETS can help improve the connections between these receptors to restore the balance that nature intended.
