If stressors like these lead to barking, pacing, or trembling, your pooch may be suffering from anxiety. Unlike prescription drugs, CBD can naturally sooth their nerves with virtually no side effects.
What Causes Anxiety In Dogs?
Some pups seem to be born anxious, and in a way, they are. Certain breeds carry a genetic predisposition for anxiety and nervous behavior, especially if their exercise needs aren’t met. Others need strong leadership and lots of socialization to build up their confidence. This is especially true of rescue dogs coming from unstable backgrounds.
Most commonly, dogs develop specific fears and anxieties due to prior bad experiences. For example, puppies that suffer motion sickness are likely to be nervous riding in cars as adults. Similarly, dogs that have been adopted from shelters seem to have a higher risk of separation anxiety once they find loving homes.
Regardless of their history, any dog can suffer the mental and physical symptoms of anxiety.
What Are The Signs?
- Withdrawal from Family
- Flat Ears & Tucked Tail
- Nervous Lip Licking
- Loss of Appetite
- Decrease in Activity
- Escape Attempts
- “Accidents” in the House
- Vomiting or Stress Diarrhea
- Self-Harm – (chewing, licking or scratching)
- Situational Aggression – (snapping when cornered)
How CBD Helps Your Dog “Chill Out.”
CBD oil works by interacting with specialized receptors within the central nervous system. These receptors help control important functions such as sleep, mood, appetite, and immunity, helping to maintain homeostasis within the body.
Dogs with anxiety suffer from over-stimulation of the nervous system, throwing the above functions out of balance. You know how hard it can be to sleep or eat properly when you are stressed out. The same is true for your pup, although it may show up in different ways.
CBD naturally increases the availability of serotonin, the body’s “feel-good chemical.” It works in much the same way as anti-anxiety drugs like Prozac and Zoloft without any of the potential side effects.
