My female pitbull momma and her puppies have suffered a severe trauma involving the suicide of my “husband”, their pack leader. They were present when he shot himself and were there truing to get him up and stayed by his side for afloat 2 hours before i got home… licking ands nudging at him… laying by his side crying when i got home. We were displaced for biohazard cleanup and obvious reasons but the dogs remained in the home… they lay in his spot where he wad discovered as are very distant from each other at times, aggressive more than normal, visually depressed, crying and whining… I was told to try puppy pot pulls but unsure of the type to purchase. I love in Arizona and honestly, not to worried if its legal. Due to the unexpectedly/untimely death and financial obligations, i can’t afford any type of training/grieving therapy. What would you recommend? There are 3 puppies and one momma. Puppies are 5.5 months (9/30/17) and about 42-46 pounds and mom is 3 years old (9/22/14) and about 49 pounds. All haves shots, very checked regularly… 100% full bred pit bulls. Any advice is welcomed as long ad is positive and helpful. No negative contents please as this is a very sensitive subject already and my fur-babies are vey important to me. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4966652a3d01673fcd0799182c36665e895478eeddbb4065b59bc0f4f813fcbe.jpg
A lot of pet owners want nothing but the best for their pets and CBD may be the answer to that. There are dog treats that have CBD in them which you can use for your pet. Nowadays in the holistic pet market, you can expect that more CBD products are coming your way and that they will be safe for your pets to use. There are dog treats as well as topical creams that can help your pet deal with the kind of pain and illnesses that they feel. It can help when you are aware of the effects that CBD will have for your pet.
Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with receptors in the brain, central nervous system, and organs and acts as an anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting agent. There are a number of reasons why your pup would need an anti-inflammatory agent. Whether it’s to aid in post-operative care or alleviate pain associated with illness or disease, CBD has been proven to fight inflammation in dogs (and people).
However, there are veterinarians that support THC-free hemp supplements for animals. Miami-based veterinarian Dr. Patricia Khuly, VMD, has recommended hemp supplements to her patients, and has even made homemade versions using hemp oil for her pets. “I find they can be somewhat effective as part of a well rounded chronic pain protocol,” she tells Leafly—though she has never used them for pet anxiety or improving fur and skin. “Hemp oil sounds interesting for use in the same way fish oil would be implemented for these other indications,” she adds, “especially for my vegan clients who prefer to source non-animal based products for their pets.” She would like to see more research first, though.
