As the temperature rises during the scorching summer months, it becomes essential to ensure the well-being of our pets. Just like humans, pets can also feel the effects of hot weather, leading to discomfort and stress. Luckily, there are ways to use CBD to help your pet deal with the heat and discomforts of summer.
1. Reduced Stress
High temperatures and the associated discomfort can cause high levels of stress in pets. CBD’s calming effects, make it a valuable tool for managing pet stress, promoting a sense of relaxation, and reducing stress levels. This is particularly crucial during hot weather when pets may experience increased restlessness, panting, and pacing due to the discomfort caused by heat. CBD can help them feel more at ease, allowing them to better cope with the challenges of the season. Pet Releaf’s Stress Releaf oils and Edibites are great to have on hand all summer.
2. Reduced Joint Discomfort
Hot weather can exacerbate things like joint discomfort in pets. CBD can help pets maintain a normal inflammatory response by interacting with ECS receptors, offering relief from joint discomfort and promoting overall well-being. For dogs that are more active in the summer, joints may need even more support from CBD. Consider Hip & Joint Oil and Edibites.
3. Supports a Healthy Appetite
Pets may lose their appetite during hot weather, leading to a decrease in food intake and potential nutritional deficiencies. CBD may help support a healthy appetite and enhance the pet’s interest in food. Maintaining proper nutrition is crucial for pets to stay healthy and maintain their energy levels, especially when they are exposed to high temperatures.
4. Eases Skin Irritations
CBD’s promotion of a healthy inflammatory system can benefit pets with skin irritations or seasonal allergies, soothing itchiness and helping the skin maintain a normal moisture level. Skin & Paw Releaf ointment paired with Pet Releaf’s Grooming line of shampoos and conditioners are a great way to keep a pet’s skin and coat healthy all summer long, whether dealing with bug bites or chlorine.
5. Soothes Tummy Troubles
The heat and stress of summer can affect our pets’ digestive tracts, CBD can help relieve occasional gastric distress and support normal bowel function. Digestive Releaf Edibites are a great way to get your pet’s stomach health back to normal.
Hot weather can be challenging for pets, but with CBD, pet owners can help their animals find some relief.
