Dogs and cats often struggle with anxiety and stress and unfortunately most pet parents aren’t exactly sure how to help them. One of the ways that CBD oil can work is through helping a stressed pet to relax. As humans, we know what it's like to feel anxious, some of us more so than others.
Separation anxiety is a real thing for cats and dogs. Dogs with separation anxiety are unable to find comfort when they are left alone or separated from their family members (their pack). This anxiety often manifests itself in undesirable behaviour, such as peeing and pooing in the house, chewing furniture, digging and constantly barking.
Cats with separation anxiety will follow their owners compulsively between rooms and demand constant attention. They will begin to recognise the signs when you’re about to leave the house, and will become distressed: hiding, sulking, or vocalising their displeasure loudly. Like dogs, when they’re alone in the house, they may perform destructive behaviours that they are not usually inclined to, such as refusing to use the litter box or not eating.
This is very upsetting for pet owners who often work away from home all day and are forced to leave their beloved four-legged friends at home.
Recognising when your dog or cat is nervous or scared is very important. If you pay keen attention, you’ll be able to see it in their body language or behaviour. They’re very likely to be doing one or several of these things:
How Gizzls CBD Treats Can Help
The use of CBD oil to treat this issue in pets has become a highly recommended way for pet owners to deal with their pet’s crippling anxiety.
We love giving our cats or dogs treats to show them affection and provide rewards. Treats help reinforce the special bond between you and your pet and are a good way to reinforce positive behaviour. It's also a much less stressful way to give your pet the correct dosage of CBD oil. Trying to give an already stressed pet CBD oil with a tincture is tricky to say the least and they also hate the taste of the oil (it's very bitter), which can add to their anxiety, before calming them down. Gizzls CBD treats are specifically developed by an animal nutritionist and are made with delicious, meaty ostrich for dogs or fishy, fresh mackerel for cats.
Gizzls CBD treats contain the recommended dose of CBD oil which can have a significant impact on your pet’s anxiety levels and can also help you improve your relationship with them.
With Gizzls CBD treats, owners (I use the word very lightly when referring to cats, we all know they own us!) can reward their pet in the morning with a calming treat before leaving for work, which will help alleviate the separation anxiety during the day. You'll be able to feel more relaxed during the day and enjoy coming home to a calm, happy pet (and a clean house). It's a win-win!
