There’s no denying that as pet owners, we always want the best for our fur children. We spoil our pets with toys, treats and loads of cuddles because we want them to enjoy the life they live as our little sidekicks.
So what if I told you there was a product that could make your pets life even more enjoyable with just a few drops?
I’m talking about Hemp Seed Oil. For those of you who aren’t aware about the health benefits of adding hemp oil into your pooches’ diet, I’m about to tell you why you should consider this supplement for your fur baby by answering some common questions.
What is Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp Seed Oil is made from hemp seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant. The seeds, which the oil is made from, is from the same species as cannabis but of a different variety. This means that there is little to no Cannabidiol (CBD) or Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content found within the seeds. Hemp is known as the non-psychoactive version of cannabis that has well researched benefits as a superfood. This means your pet can safely reap the benefits of hemp seed oil without any psychoactive or other unwanted effects.
Hemp Seed Oil is considered one of the healthiest oils in the world. This is due to Hemp Seed Oil being naturally rich in Omega 3, which is great for bones, skin, coat, eyes, heart and brain. Hemp Seed Oil also contains other essential fatty acids which are important for a dogs diet as dog’s bodies don’t naturally manufacture all of the essential fatty acids they need for their health. Therefore, Hemp Seed Oil may assist in supplementing this need in your dog’s diet so that they may have all the nutrients required for a healthier and happier life.
I’ve heard of Hemp Seed Oil benefiting humans, but how can Hemp Seed Oil benefit my pup?
Hemp seed oil has been proven to reduce anxiety in humans. There have also been studies completed which show similar benefits in pets. If your dog suffers from any kind of anxiety, adding hemp seed oil into your pet’s meal may be a great way to help them feel more relaxed.
Joint Pain Reduction
Hemp seed oil for dogs is also a great natural anti-inflammatory. Supplementing hemp seed oil into your dog's diet may help to fight against inflammation caused by arthritis and other joint problems. The hemp oil helps to keep your dog’s joints loose and lubricated so that they can move about as they please. While hemp seed oil has some incredible benefits for our pooches, it cannot cure all the pain caused by arthritis and joint issues some dogs face; it can, however help to ease the symptoms making it everyday life more enjoyable for your pup.
Healthy Skin & Coat
My personal favourite benefit of Hemp Seed Oil for my pooch is the effect it has on their skin and coat. Hemp Seed Oil may aid in preventing skin disorders such as dry nose, dog acne, dog eczema, dog rash and dog dandruff. In fact, many dog shampoos and conditioners contain hemp seed oil for this reason.
When hemp seed oil is correctly supplemented to your dog’s diet, the essential fatty acids in the hemp seed oil aid in moisturizing the dogs skin. It can also thicken fur and soften it’s texture which in turn helps to minimise the shedding and improve dog dandruff.
