Pet Owners Report Hemp as a Helpful Alternative in Pain Management

Veterinarian with Dog V1

According to a survey published in the Spring 2016 issue of the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (JAHVMA) – nearly 65% of pet owners believe that hemp products help their pets.  A team at the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine conducted the study.

 

According to the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association:

 

“Six-hundred and thirty-two people responded to the survey, with 457 using or having used a hemp product for their dog and 104 people using or having used a hemp product for their cat.

 

In addition to the relief from pain, 50.5% of the dogs and 44% of the cats were perceived by their owners as having either moderately or greatly improved sleep habits from the use of hemp products.

 

When it came to anxiety, 49.3% of dog owners reported that the hemp products helped moderately or a great deal. For reducing inflammation in cats, the owners perceived the products were similarly helpful in 56.3% of the felines.”

 

Just like human beings, animals have an Endocannabinoid System, that may be responsive to cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids, from hemp.  Hemp products are legal to purchase and sell in all 50 States.  We encourage you to do more research yourself, and if you decide to try out a CBD-rich hemp oil product for your pets, that you will choose That’s Natural!
