One day I was chewing the fat with a colleague in the break room, and the subject of our dogs came up. I was telling him about my dog Gary’s “thunder phobia” and he mentioned he had used CBD oil for his dog Benji’s seizures. He said CBD oil had amazing anti-anxiety properties. I had no idea you could use CBD oil for dogs.
My dog Gary is my best friend, he’s loyal, with a friendly, tolerant attitude. We do everything together. He’s a Golden retriever who’s getting along in years. Gary has a great temperament; he’s got a real even keel. The problem arises when there is a thunderstorm. I live in a moderately inclement area, but once in a while we’ll get a nail-biter. Gary’s got severe “thunder phobia”. His storm anxiety is intense. As the storm approaches he can sense it. When the skies begin to darken his behavior definitely changes and he gets very (VERY) nervous. By the time the wind and thunder intensify, he goes into full-blown, sheer panic mode. He starts slobbering and whining and scratching. He usually bolts behind the couch or dives for cover under whatever is convenient and in his immediate vicinity. The poor guy is a mess in nothing flat. I had to do something.
After thoughtfully considering the conversation my colleague and I had. I went home and read a ton of CBD oil reviews. I read all about CBD oil for pets; specifically dogs. After some thorough research, I placed an order with CBD hemp wise. I bought some Therabis Calm and Quiet CBD Dog Treats (for large dogs 60+ lb. – 5mg. per treat). I was going to be ready when the next storm hit.
Sometime, shortly thereafter, I was traveling home from work. I felt I had covered all of my bases. I found CBD oil for sale online. I learned about CBDHempWise, which has some of the best CBD oil on the market; on the cheap. I was mulling all this over when the radio piped in about a fast-moving, heavy thunderstorm approaching the area. I rushed home before Gary totally freaked out. I knew if he sensed the storm coming, I would never get him to eat a treat. I pulled in the driveway, and he raced to meet me, like he always does. I gave old Gary a couple of treats, and he gobbled them right up. So far so good I thought. Well, the storm arrived about 15 mins. later.
I’m happy to report that Gary was cool as a cucumber through the whole ordeal. Two highly concentrated CBD oil dog treats was the perfect dosage. He exhibited a calm demeanor in a typically stressful situation. CBD oil relieved Gary’s anxiety. He curled up beside me on the couch and we watched the game until he fell asleep. CBD did the trick, which was a small miracle, and there weren’t CBD oil side effects. Does CBD oil work? It did for my dog Gary. It alleviated the symptoms of his storm induced panic effectively and in a timely manner. His distress and anxiousness evaporated within minutes. If you have a furry family member that experiences occasional anxiety, these treats can be your first line of defense. As for me and Gary, we are ready for inclement weather. You’ll find us, calmly, riding the storm out – thanks to CBD.
