How CBD Can Help Your Cat

Looking for a natural way to help out your feline friend? Look no further than cat CBD.

For those new to the CBD trend, it’s become extremely popular and for good reason too. CBD is used for treating all kinds of issues in humans such as anxiety, depression, and even post-traumatic stress disorder.

For those unaware, CBD is not the same as marijuana. Although they both come from the hemp plant, CBD lacks TCH, the psychoactive ingredient that causes the “high” or euphoric effect. So, if that was scaring you away from CBD, we hope we have cleared that misconception. CBD is safe to use and is all-natural.

Now that we have explained how great it is for humans, did you know you can use it for your pets? Let’s discuss further how CBD can help your cat’s health

Calms Cats Down

Since CBD acts as a serotonin receptor for the nervous system, it can cause your cat’s body to release more serotonin in your body. And more serotonin = happier cats.

If your cat has shown any of the following symptoms, they would be a good candidate for CBD:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Over-grooming that leads to hair loss and sores
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Escaping the home or enclosures
  • Hiding from people or other cats

Since our cats can’t communicate directly to us about their health, we have to rely on the signs they give us.

And since stress is especially hard to pinpoint, know the signs will help make it easier to diagnose and treat them.

Improves Your Cat’s Health

In addition to calming down your cat, CBD can also help your cat out in numerous other ways.

The following are the most common benefits for cat CBD:

  • Relieves pain from cancer treatment – if your cat is being treated for cancers such as feline leukemia, feline lymphoma, or mammary cancer, CBD can be used to ease the painful symptoms from treatments.
  • Skin and coat conditions – giving your cat a regular and daily dose of CBD can also improve their overall skin and coat conditions.
  • Vomiting and diarrhea – CBD can also be used to treat chronic vomiting and diarrhea in cats as well.
  • Appetite – using cat CBD will also help improve your cat’s loss of appetite.

When it comes to our cat’s health, it’s best to try to go as natural as possible. Use these warning signs as an indicator that you should seek a veterinarian.

If your cat is not experiencing anything life-threatening from these symptoms, try cat CBD instead to treat these issues.

Give It a Shot

Like we mentioned earlier, we can’t freely communicate with our cats to know what exactly is wrong with them and have to rely on symptoms they display instead. On top of that, it can be very hard to distinguish whether or not you can give your cat over the counter medicine, which is usually not recommended unless specified by your veterinarian. Sometimes natural is best and with cat CBD you know you will be getting that.

Speaking of medicine, since CBD is natural, you can even give it your cat along with their daily veterinary prescribed medication.

Cat CBD also comes in a variety of forms such as your favorite cat’s treat, oils you can use to mix into their food, and infused in toys. However, the best use of cat CBD is to use it as an oil. That way, you can control the amount of dosage your cat is getting and can use it consistently.

Now is the time to be there for your pet. Try cat CBD and see all the wonders it can do for your cat.
