Older dogs have seen their owners through years of stress and hustle. They’ve accommodated and adapted. They’ll accompany you through travels in the cold or rain. Your aging dog will trek through different environments with little resistance. However, to really care for an older dog, and reduce your older dog’s stress, is to take note of their aging bones and aching paws throughout the year.
Life can be filled with shopping, long hours of traveling, little kids running around, and visitors that can bring added stress. While the best thing about pets is that they are the most empathetic towards you, they can feel the stress of your emotions as well.
A recent 2018 pharmacokinetic and clinical study done by the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University has determined that “2 mg/kg of CBD twice daily can help increase comfort and activity in dogs with OA (osteoarthritis).” The study states further that “baseline scores showed a significant decrease in pain and increase in activity (p < 0.01) at week 2 and 4 during CBD treatment.” Trends in rising CBD usages have increased with new and current state legalizations for production. Companies have accounted for the rise in these trends and have invested in state of the art research to not only gauge the market but to offer the best type of CBD oils – especially those that are natural, organic and best of all, contain no GMOs. King Kanine, a company that specializes in offering natural CBD oils for ingestion for dogs, offers CBD based topical solutions for dry, aching paws as well as dermal inflammation. Their flagship product line of King Kalm™ CBD is derived from Broad Spectrum Cannabidiol Oils. All their CBD products are compounded by a licensed pharmacist & derived from non-GMO and organic hemp, it is lab tested vigorously and often for its potency and bio-availability. They stand by their trademark of utilizing no flavors, preservatives, or colors whatsoever.
Your dog may no longer be young, but new types of pain or stress relief are always worth the try. Your dog may just love you for trying this!
