We have only recently started to use CBD/Hemp oil with our very, very timid dogs. In some we do notice change, they begin to settle and relax a bit more, and with others we have not noticed much change - it will differ dog to dog.
CBD oil has become very popular as it has many benefits and functions - not only can it aid with anxiety, it is said to aid with pain management, joint mobility, skin and coat condition and more.
It is not a drug and it will not harm your dog - there are specific lines of CBD oil for pets.
This oil is derived from cannabis plants, however, it does not create a 'high' or any form of intoxication. It is extracted from the plant either in oil or powder form, you will be surprised how little a dog needs per day to begin making a difference.
It is believed to help to secrete serotonin - a natural mood stabiliser and help to eliviate anxiety.
It can be given to a dog either directly in the mouth or in their food which makes it suitable for even the most timid of dogs.
