Is your beloved family dog going grey in the muzzle? Has your cat stopped leaping up onto the couch beside you? If we had our way, our animal companions would stay young and spry forever, but every senior pet slows down and begins to show natural signs of aging eventually. These signs can include anything from loss of mobility to serious health issues. It’s up to pet parents to consult a veterinarian and provide the right combination of preventative care and specially made products for old cats and dogs in order to keep these precious companions happy and healthy.
At Canna Companion, we’re passionate about providing you with the tools and resources you need to support your pets as they grow older. With the right care and attention, your furry friend can enjoy life well into his or her golden years! Today, we’re looking at the benefits of a hemp-based, supportive complement to your pet’s routine—CBD oil for old dogs and cats.
What is CBD Oil?
Officially known as cannabidiol, CBD is one of over 545 chemical compounds produced in the cannabis plant. These compounds are able to bind with cannabinoid receptors that in turn support the health of the endocannabinoid system. What all this means is that, in the proper form and with the proper administration, CBD supplements for older cats and dogs can allow your furry friends to enjoy the many supportive benefits of the cannabis plant!
Over 20 years of veterinary research into the proper combination of phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids led to the creation of Canna Companion and our hemp-based products. Our supplements come in capsule form or as a liquid, allowing you to choose the option that works best for your pet. When it comes to elderly cats and dogs, you may find that CBD oil is the best fit for your pet’s current lifestyle.
Canna Companion’s Whole Plant Hemp Oil is formulated specially for cats and dogs, delivering the supportive health benefits of cannabis with a carefully controlled ratio of THC to CBD. The oil is particularly helpful for aging pets who may need more immediate endocannabinoid system support, as well as for those senior dogs and cats who have trouble taking pills.
How Can CBD Oil Help My Elderly Pet?
Unlike the psychotropic compound THC, CBD does not cause the feeling of “highness” commonly associated with marijuana use. Instead, it provides access to a range of supportive benefits that can help your aging pet maintain health and quality of life.
Provides Speedy Support for the Endocannabinoid System
CBD oil is particularly helpful for pets who need more immediate endocannabinoid support than a capsule can provide. That animal might be anything from a geriatric cat that needs end of life comfort, or an increasingly nervous dog that could use some help staying calm.
Maintains GI Tract Health
Even older cats and dogs sometimes get into things they shouldn’t—and our geriatric furry friends definitely don’t have iron stomachs. While you can’t monitor your pets constantly, you can help to support their normal digestive processes with CBD oil.
Promotes “End of Life” Comfort
Your pet deserves a high quality of life no matter his age, and we’re dedicated to helping you provide just that. Our hemp oil can promote comfort and care while promoting relaxation as your pet nears the end of his life.
Encourages a Calm Demeanor
Pets can change as they grow older, and you may notice your cat suffering from nervousness or your dog experiencing separation anxiety that wasn’t evident at a younger age. Canna Companion can help your pet stay calm in the face of situational stressors like fireworks and other loud noises.
Supports the Immune System
Just as an elderly person’s immune system isn’t as strong as a healthy young person’s, senior pets may have weaker immune systems than their younger counterparts. Coupled with regular visits to the veterinarian to catch any emerging health problems, our hemp oil can help to support your pet’s functioning immune system, maintaining existing health and happiness.
Helps Maintain Normal Joint Health
We all get creaky and achy as we grow older, and the same is true for pets. At a certain age, normal daily activity may leave them feeling sore and lethargic. Canna Companion’s Whole Plant Hemp Oil supports normal joint health and may ease the discomfort that comes from normal daily activity.
Supports Healthy Neurological Function
As pets age, their brains can change in both normal and negative ways. Canna Companion works to support the endocannabinoid system, which in turn will help to support normal neurological function in your cat or dog.
