Many pets suffer from chronic anxiety, especially during storms. Anxiety can manifest in aggression toward other animals, children, and adults. Have you ever seen a recently rescued shelter dog? Many of them have extreme cases of anxiety that stem from their experiences with abuse and neglect. CBD provides a solution and helps them live a happy, relaxed life again.
Some common forms of anxiety affecting dogs include separation anxiety, noise anxiety, travel anxiety, and even specific phobias. In humans, anxiety and stress might cause us to bite our nails, pace around, or become a little shaky. In dogs, anxiety can cause similar repetitive behavior.
Some common symptoms of anxiety in dogs include:
- Persistent barking
- Chewing (furniture, shoes, rubbish, etc)
- Urinating and defecating (usually inside the house or crate)
CBD has been shown to help reduce feelings of anxiety and thereby reduce these symptoms.
How it does so, however, isn’t completely clear. Typical anxiety medications tend to target a type of seratonin receptor in the body known as 5-HT1A. By targetting these receptors, anti anxiety medications can help temporarily boost seratonin levels in the brain. This can then lead to improvements in mood and help temporarily reduce feelings of anxiety or fear. Research suggests that CBD might work in a similar way, also temporarily increasing seratonin levels in the brain. In doing so, the compound can have anti anxiety and anti depressant effects, while also helping reduce stress.
