Arthritis In Dogs. Can CBD Oil Help?

Dog Arthritis – What is It?

I’m sure you’ve heard of arthritis in humans – the inflammation of joints that create pain and stiffness in our bodies. It keeps us from enjoying everyday living.  Did you know dogs are just as susceptible to arthritis as we are? Can CBD oil help dogs?  Yes! In this article we will take a closer look at how CBD Oil is a great option for any dog suffering from Arthritis.

Before we get into the benefits of CBD oil, here are some facts from the Rheumatoid Arthritis Network.  One in five dogs will experience arthritis in their lifetime, most often affecting senior dogs.  This degenerative joint disease takes many forms; however, the most common type of arthritis in dogs is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis affects multiple joints – the pain and discomfort felt as a result of arthritis takes away the playful part of your pet’s life. In most cases of osteoarthritis, the cause of pain is the constant and abnormal rubbing within the joints due to joint instability and inflammation, which is why CBD is a great choice.

Can CBD Help Alleviate the Symptoms of Arthritis in Dogs?

The most classic symptoms of arthritis in dogs is limping and stiffness in the joints. A more complete list of potential symptoms includes difficulty getting up after lying down, lameness in one or more legs, lethargy, difficulty climbing stairs, weight gain, depression, anxiety, house soiling and behavioral changes.  Like humans, when you hurt, you don’t want to think about taking a long walk or chasing a ball.

CBD Oil – A Treatment Option for Arthritis in Dogs

Because arthritis is worsened by obesity and lack of exercise, it is important that you keep your dog’s weight under control and their activity levels at a normal level.  Giving your dog CBD Oil may help your dog get his level of activity back in full swing!   CBD found in hemp oil is a compound derived from the hemp plant called cannabidiol or CBD for short.  CBD is a derivative of the hemp plant.  It contains 0% THC and is a safe and non-toxic alternative that works naturally with the dogs’ endocannabinoid system.

According to Healthline News, CBD has a multitude of benefits that seem amazing and this is because they are! Things like anxiety reduction, reducing seizure symptoms, and fighting bad cancer cells in the body, just to name a few.  But the benefit that really fights arthritis in your dog is CBD’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties – the root cause of joint pain.  CBD is shown to interact with brain neurotransmitters reducing  pain and inflammation.

Not only does CBD help dogs with inflammation, but CBD also reduces the dog’s anxiety levels to pain which helps them get up and move around.  This activity keeps your dog’s joints loose and feeling good so they can move even more.

No one knows your dog like you do. . . and it’s safe to say no one loves your dog as much as you do.  Our pets look to us to provide the very best nutrition to keep them healthy and pain free.

Dr. Erin Chu, a veterinary geneticist at Embark Veterinary is quoted as saying, “CBD might be just one part of a comprehensive care plan that you build with your veterinarian!  Talk with your veterinarian about the possible options to manage your pet’s ailment, be it chronic pain, behavioral issues or other.  And give your vet some time to do their research!  CBD is as new to pet health as it is to humans, and we as a profession are still learning, albeit very quickly.”

In addition to adding a CBD supplement to your dog’s daily routine such as ROCKY MOUNTAIN GIRLS HEMP CBD OIL or ROCKY MOUNTAIN GIRLS HEMP CBD SOFT DOG CHEWS, there are a few other things that you can do to show your pet they are truly part of a family that loves them.

  • Exercise – to help loosen stiff joints
  • Physical rehabilitation – includes cold and heat therapy, canine massage, stretching, and range-of-motion exercises
