Adopting a dog is a life changing experience. And as you start your journey with your newfound family member, you want to make sure you are giving them the best experience possible. Sometimes, rescue dogs that are adopted from shelters can come with some emotional traumas. Whether it be their past or their present environment, they may have developed defensive and standoffish characteristics. For these dogs, the transition to their new life can be an uneasy one at first.
Your rescue dog will surely learn to love and trust their new family and environment, but is there anything that could help in the process?
CBD has been proven effective for a number of ailments in dogs:
- Joint discomfort
- Short-term stress
- Long-term stress
- Skin irritation
These issues, especially stress, can often affect rescue dogs. If there’s one thing doctors and veterinarians will agree on, it’s that stress in any form is not good for you. Dogs who have been abandoned or have spent time in and out shelters may develop stress associated with separation and new people or environments. The constant changing of environments and the solitude of being alone can make rescue dogs very insecure, even if that’s not their true personality. CBD treats or oils can help put your dog’s mind at ease, ultimately addressing their short term and or long-term stress, leading to improved overall health. CBD could help immensely with your rescue dogs’ transition and adjustment.
