CBD FOR AGING CATS

  
Why should you consider giving your senior cats CBD oil?

Studies have shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces anxiety and pain, lessens seizure activity, and improves overall well being. In addition to its many medicinal benefits, CBD is also quite safe for senior cats as long as it contains little to no THC.
Adverse side effects of CBD are rare. Those that do occur tend to be mild, especially compared to the myriad problems associated with prescription drugs. According to Veterinary News:
“Most pharmaceuticals only stimulate upregulation or downregulation, making it possible to move body systems out of their normal or homeostatic state. Because CBD works toward homeostasis, it doesn’t do this, making unwanted side effects rare and giving CBD a good safety profile.”

Many veterinarians and pet parents have actually reported positive side effects. For example, they begin using CBD to help their cat cope with arthritis and find that he or she also enjoys relief from asthma symptoms.



















Common health issues in senior cats & how CBD might help

Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Cats with IBD suffer from chronic irritation and inflammation of the GI tract. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD may provide relief.

Pancreatitis: Senior cats with IBD, diabetes, and certain infections may also develop pancreatitis, but the condition can also develop independently. Pancreatitis is very painful and potentially deadly. It occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed, disrupting digestion. Once again, CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, potentially aiding a cat dealing with pancreatitis.

Arthritis: Several anti-inflammatory pain meds exist for the treatment of canine arthritis, but senior cats are not so lucky. CBD oil may help cats with achy joints.

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease describes a variety of conditions that affect the bladder and urethra of cats. These problems cause pain and inflammation of which CBD may provide relief.

Asthma: Asthma is yet another common inflammatory disease in cats. CBD may be a great option to reduce bronchial inflammation, lessening the number of asthma attacks.

Chronic Upper Respiratory Infections: Many cats suffer from life-long viral infections of the respiratory system. Symptoms include chronic congestion, sneezing, and itchy, runny eyes. Again, the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of CBD may provide relief.

Seizures: CBD acts as a neuroprotective agent, which means it may aid in frequency and intensity of seizures.
