It’s a fact of life that the puppies we fall in love with eventually grow up and grow old like everybody else. And just like us, the days sometimes get a little harder when they do.
Pain, inflammation, joint issues, anxiety and dementia can all get in the way of a good life in later years. Fortunately, nature has given us CBD, and it might just be the answer our senior dogs are looking for.
CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces anxiety and stress, lessens seizure activity, increases appetite and improves overall well being. In addition to its many medicinal benefits, CBD is also very safe for senior dogs.
How can CBD help your senior pup?
You probably remember the bouncy puppy you brought home years ago, chewing all the furniture and exploding with endless energy, but over time your dog’s body will begin to tire. The aches, pains and stiffness happens to most of us – people and animals.
CBD oil won’t magically turn back the clock on your dog’s joints, but it can help ease the pain and help manage it. The effects aren’t limited to pain in their joints, either – CBD oil can help manage other kinds of pain as well. No one wants to see their dog in pain or unable to move well. Where other medications have nasty side-effects, CBD is completely natural and safe.
Inflammation is another typical ailment in our dogs' autumn years whether it’s related to arthritis, joint conditions or something else. Inflammation can be the root cause of so many ailments, which CBD can alleviate as it’s a powerful, natural anti-inflammatory.
Reduce Pain Medication
This is super important because when we stop inflammation, we stop the pain and movement problems we often see in our fur babies when their dog years start to add up. Conventional care usually means steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. But, like pain relievers, the long-term use of these meds can have serious side effects. Gizzls Joint and Mobility CBD Treats are a great way to achieve the same anti-inflammation results with a lot less worry.
Brings Calm and Tranquility
The last gift CBD gives our ageing pups is peace of mind. As our furry best friend gets older, their hearing and eyesight can fade, and dementia sometimes creeps in, all of which can lead to anxiousness. CBD will help to alleviate this anxiety and help our ageing pets enjoy happier, calmer twilight years.
