Helping Pets Overcome Situational Anxiety and Other Stressors

Maybe you have the happiest dog in the world, but he becomes nervous when exposed to a new space. Or maybe your sweet kitty gets aggressive when you try to put her in the cat carrier for a car ride. These things might not seem scary to us, but pets see the world differently: anything that they perceive as a threat can cause feelings of anxiety, fear, and nervousness.  

Being separated from you, moving into a new house, meeting a new member of the family—all of these situations can trigger a stress response in your pet. Thunderstorms and fireworks are also particularly common sources of anxiety. Think about it: your furry friend hears a loud, scary noise, but has no way of knowing where the “threat” is coming from. We’d be nervous in that situation, too!

When pets are stressed or anxious, they may express their fear in the form of destructive behaviors. That could include shredding furniture, urinating or defecating in the house, showing aggression, or vocalizing more than usual. But you don’t have to resign yourself to dealing with a ripped-up couch every time you come home. Veterinary advice and supplemental resources can make a world of difference when it comes to helping a dog or cat calm down. Canna Companion is a hemp-based supplement that can help pets relax in the face of situational stressors. 

How Canna Companion Encourages a Calm Demeanor

Hemp is all too often mistaken for marijuana, a drug with a high concentration of the psychotropic THC. Our hemp-based supplements are specially formulated to unlock the power of the Cannabis sativa plant while minimizing the negative side effects associated with marijuana use. The result? A high-quality supplement that offers a wide range of supportive benefits, including promoting a calm demeanor.

Canna Companion provides natural support to the endocannabinoid system, which consists of receptors found in every single tissue of the body. Those receptors are responsible for responding to cellular stress, and Canna Companion supports them in their duty. When administered regularly and in the proper amount, Canna Companion can help your pet relax during stressful periods and make progress in overcoming temporary or situational anxieties.
