Benefits of CBD and Omega 3 Fish Oil for Pet Health
One of the best combinations out there for improving our pet's health and overall well being is a mixture of Omega-3s from fish oil and Cannabidiol (CBD). Omega-3s fish oil contain two essential fatty acids: EPA and DHA (or eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid). Both are omega-3 fatty acids that can only be made in a limited capacity in dogs and are even more poorly synthesized in cats. EPA, one of the two omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, acts as an anti-inflammatory.
It will help with any condition that causes inflammation of the heart, kidneys, skin, and joints—such as arthritis. It will ease inflammation due to allergies, and reduce itchy skin and dandruff. This can also be an effective way to potentially decrease the incidence of hot spots on your pets. Like many fat supplements, it promotes a shiny, healthy coat, and reduces shedding. DHA, the other omega-3 fatty acid in fish oil, is important in brain and eye development in puppies and kittens. Giving fish oil to pregnant or nursing pets can benefit the babies once they're born.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is not just beneficial for us. CBD is extremely beneficial for our furry best friends as well. CBD oil has a relaxing, calming effect on our pets while reducing their anxiety which is helpful in pets with separation anxiety and various noise phobias. CBD Oil, like Omega-3s, is an anti-inflammatory helping relieve joint pains, improving joint health, and relieving pain. Also like Omega-3s, CBD supports cardiovascular function and helps promote a healthy heart.
In summary, we recommend giving your pet, whether young or old, CBD and a high quality Omega-3 rich source such as Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil daily. Our Pets by TerraVita tincture is CBD Isolate and Wild Alaskan Salmon oil while our Pet Spray contains Full Spectrum CBD in Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil.
