We have learned many benefits of giving your pet CBD. This article will discuss CBD and your pet’s heart health – symptoms of a problem and preventative options. Let’s keep their hearts ticking with help from CBD!
All pets have an endocannabinoid system, just like humans. Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with this system, and therefore has access to their cardiovascular system. Regularly using CBD in your pet’s diet may help delay and prevent heart disease.
Symptoms Of Heart Disease In Animals
CBD expert Sarah Potts lists the common symptoms in pets:
- Breathing difficulties
- Drinking a lot of water
- Change in weight and appetite
- Abnormal urination and bowel movements
Be Proactive Against Heart Disease!
The best way to avoid heart disease altogether is to take preventative action and to be informed. Along with regular visits to your vet, check out this list of ways you can be a responsible pet owner against heart disease:
How CBD Can Help
Sarah Potts continues and sites clinical research studies that have discovered how CBD may help your pet’s heart. The results are twofold: 1) CBD can help reduce damage done to blood vessels, and 2) it can help regulate blood pressure.
If the artery walls are stiff, there is a greater chance that they will be damaged from high blood pressure. Research has shown that CBD causes vasorelaxation (the relaxing of the artery walls).
Be sure to speak with your veterinarian about how CBD can become a part of your preventative treatment plan against heart disease.
An easy way to administer CBD to your pet is with Herbal Pet’s tinctures. Unlike pills, you can ensure they receive the full dose and don’t hide their pill somewhere in the house!
