Separation Anxiety and CBD

If you have been working at home due to the current circumstances, you may have noticed that your dog is overjoyed by your near-constant presence, but exhibit signs of separation anxiety anytime you do head out. Said signs include howling, urinating, attempting to escape, constant pacing, panting, trembling, and displaying destructive tendencies. 

Now, separation anxiety is rather common in dogs, with approximately 20-40% of our furry friends affected by it. Thankfully, there are ways to help reduce your pup’s anxiety. 

For instance, proponents of cannabidiol claim that CBD can improve your pup’s mood. Granted there has been a limited amount of studies done on whether or not CBD oil has a positive effect on the emotional state of dogs. That being said, recent research, including a 2019 double-blind study held at Kyoto University in Inuyama, Japan, has found that CBD can provide relief to humans who are suffering from social anxiety disorder (SAD). 

While we are obviously different from our canine companions, both humans and dogs have an endocannabinoid system that releases endocannabinoid chemicals. So theoretically, CBD should also be beneficial to your anxious pup. 

It is imperative, however, for owners to do their own research and to talk to their veterinarian before giving their dog CBD, to see if it’s even suitable for their pup’s specific needs. 

Let us know in the comments section if you would ever consider trying out cannabidiol as a way to destress your pup.
