Whether you’ve just adopted a senior pet, or you’ve watched your canine or feline friend slowly age through the years, here are 3 signs that your senior pet could benefit from the properties of CBD.
#1. Joint discomfort and mobility issues
Like humans, our trusted canine and feline friends can also suffer from immobilizing aches and discomforts. The most common cause of these mobility issues comes from joint discomfort due to age-related issues. Here are a few natural suggestions that may help manage inflammatory responses.
- Hemp oil for dogs
- Fish oil
- Green-lipped mussel (GLM)
- Cannabidiol (CBD)
#2. Occasional Stress
As your pet ages, you may notice them getting a little more clingy and needy. Maybe a quick trip to the grocery store or even to the mailbox has your dog or cat verbally interrogating you to see why you were gone for so long.
If your pet already struggles with loud noises, being separated from you, or from the stress of traveling and changing environments, the chances are these struggles will only be heightened as they age.
#3. Lack of appetite and nausea
Have you noticed that your dog or cat has been throwing up a lot lately? Or maybe you’ve noticed they’re just not interested in eating anymore?
As you might have already known, most pets are totally driven by food, especially dogs. But as our pets age, you might begin to notice that your dog or cat isn’t as excited about their food as they used to be. In fact, instead of eating, they’re showing signs of nausea instead.
This could be due to a number of reasons:
- Sore teeth
- Not interested in the same ol’ dog or cat chow
- Supplements or additions to their diet
- Emotional or social issues
- Or they’re just not feeling too well
