Our dogs can become stressed and anxious just like we can. When anxiety comes from situations like being left home alone. It is often referred to as separation anxiety.
Our dogs may show separation anxiety in a range of behaviors from full blown panic and destruction to minor sadness. Their anxiety could come from a wide range of stressful sources, most often some sort of change in the routine they are used to, loud sudden noises like thunder or fireworks, and many other causes. Often the cause is being left at home alone.
Signs your dog may have separation anxiety may become apparent when you are getting ready to leave home or before you can hear the thunder, they feel it. They start to notice you are getting ready to leave before you leave. One thing you are going to keep in mind is if you want to try CBD to help with their separation anxiety. It is best to give it before they start to feel anxious. A daily dose of CBD is often recommended.
Like humans, dogs that are stressed experience increased secretion of cortisol and adrenaline. When this occurs, their primitive flight or fight mechanism is activated and anxiety is often the result of this. Your dog's perspective: human life is foreign and complex, we set alarms to wake up, go to work away from home, go shopping and many other errands and then come back. During this time your dogs are at home waiting for you to return with no understanding of the demands of your life.
For some dogs this situation can be overwhelming, they are a different species with a different evolutionary line and cannot communicate or use logic like us humans can. ( well, some of us can) Studies show that 20 -40% of dogs suffer from separation anxiety. With more and more people returning to work outside their home that number is expected to rise.
One of the fastest growing trends in pet care is using CBD to help calm and treat pets with anxiety. Research has found that CBD can help manage anxiety by changing the brain's receptor response to serotonin.
Cannabidiol: better known as CBD! CBD my work on the systems behind your dog's anxiety in order to address the underlying processes behind their separation anxiety and other ailments.
Your dogs have an endocannabinoid system just like we do. The endocannabinoid system plays a role in homeostasis within our and their body. That means it works with other systems and processes to address imbalances in hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. Possibly bringing out a state of calmness that eases their separation anxiety.
Giving your dog's CBD every day gives you a base structure. Start with smaller daily doses. Work your way up as needed to find the amount that works best for your dog. Generally smaller dogs will do best with smaller amounts of CBD and larger dogs will do better with larger amounts of CBD to be effective. Just like us dogs have individual body chemistries that can widely affect how CBD helps them.
When looking for CBD for your dog here are a couple things to think about.
Always make sure your CBD comes from American grown hemp. Get CBD not hemp oil or hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant. The seeds do not contain CBD. CBD comes from the flowing buds of the hemp plant. Look for Full Spectrum CBD. Broad Spectrum contains THC.
What can I do in addition to giving my dog CBD to help with separation anxiety?
Dogs are very good at feeling your energy. If you are worried, anxious or stressed about their separation anxiety, they will pick up on your emotions. Which can cause a cycle of stress for both of you. If possible, leave your house when your dog's energy and yours is as calm as possible. Saying bye to them 15 minutes before you have to leave. Having comforting toys and blankets for them.
I have learned from studies that dogs think in terms of associating a stimulus to a response. This in part is how your dogs can sense you are getting ready before you leave.
