The holidays are here! That means holiday parties, gift-giving, and lots of fun events. The holiday season is a wonderful time, but for many pet owners, it comes with some anxiety - for you and your pet.
If you are hosting parties, having a lot of guests in and out of your home is stressful. If you are going to parties, leaving your pet for an extended period of time is also stressful. So how can you help reduce their anxiety?
You probably can guess what we are going to say: CBD!
CBD Oil for Anxiety in Pets During Holiday Parties
CBD is an anti-anxiety option for humans AND pets. It can potentially help your furry friend feel calm and relaxed, fall asleep, and reduce inflammation in the same way that it can help humans.
Let's address some commonly asked questions about CBD oil for anxiety in pets. Many people question if CBD oil might help anxiety-prone dogs. The answer is “potentially!”. Dogs are like humans in that they are unique. Whether your dog is anxious from being locked in his or her crate, loud noises from holiday parties, or just anxiety-prone, CBD could be a solution and it is definitely worth a try.
Concerns About Using CBD For Pets
We often get the question: Will my pet get high from CBD? The short answer is no.
Fallen Pollen Apothecary CBD follows the standard guidelines that state it should contain less than 0.3% THC, the psychoactive component of hemp. Since CBD is not FDA regulated, it’s important to make sure the CBD brands you choose offer third-party testing.
