CBD For Pet Allergies

Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of human conditions like—chronic pain, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma and allergies. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating, non-psychogenic component of the Cannabis Sativa plant that holds enormous therapeutic potential for our pets with similar age-related medical conditions.

However, the positive effects of CBD for dogs extend well beyond the physical care of your pet–CBD oil is a holistic food supplement that can also improve mental, emotional and behavioral related canine issues as well.

Treating dog allergies with CBD can, for many dog patients, produce the following observable benefits:

CBD For Dogs Itching

CBD for dogs allergies. CBD for Dogs with Allergies
Like humans, dogs can have allergies & sensitivities to seasonal pollen & chemicals.

Similar to humans, some dogs have an inherent sensitivity to their home surroundings that can manifest into a hyper-sensitivity to certain environmental insults. These canines can develop a chronic allergic reaction to common household products like indoor cleaners, solvents, scented oils or chemicals used outdoors like pesticides & herbicides.

The use of medicated dog shampoos or highly concentrated chemicals in flea & tick collars can also be a precipitating cause of a dog’s acute allergic reaction.

When presented with dogs showing symptoms related to allergic responses, the vast majority of veterinarians will prescribe a regimen of OTC anti-allergy drugs and antibiotics and/or anti-viral medications. But relieving symptoms without addressing the underlying cause (or source) of the problem is a short term fix that can become a lifelong health problem for your pet. And unlike CBD, certain drugs used to stop the over-active allergic cycle can have significant, potentially very serious side effects.

Fortunately, CBD is a safer way to relieve your dog’s symptoms than pharmaceutical drugs while you (and your vet) work to discover the root cause of the allergic reaction–a condition called allergic dermatitis.

Food Allergies in Dogs

Contrary to what you’ve probably been led to believe, pets need diversity in their diets just like humans do. Over time and repeated exposure they might become sensitive to the single source of chemically-laced protein they’ve been getting (chances are the meat is loaded with antibiotics and hormones causing immune system over-reaction). Providing variety in your dog’s feeding is important to avoid developing sensitivities to highly processed dry kibble products.

Average, healthy dogs can grow sensitive to certain allergenic ingredients in their food–typically grains and other carbohydrates. Work with your holistic vet to develop an ‘Allergy Elimination Diet’ to help pinpoint the source of any allergic type problems.

If your dog has an allergy to something he’s eating, it may show itself not only as digestive upset (gas, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.), but also as one or several of these symptoms:

– Red, irritated eyes
– Inflamed ears
– Coughing, sneezing, asthma
– Nasal discharge
– Itchy or oozing skin
– Swollen paws
– Excessive scratching or chewing areas of the body

Environmental Allergies in Dogs

In addition to flea saliva and certain foods/ingredients, your dog can also be allergic to an infinite variety of irritants in the environment. These can be outdoor allergens like ragweed, grasses and pollens, as well as indoor irritants like mold, dust mites, cleaning chemicals and even fabrics like wool or cotton.

As a general rule, if your dog is allergic to something inside your home, he’ll have year-round symptoms. If he’s reacting to something outdoors, it could very well be a seasonal allergy problem.

Also, your pet’s immune system is partly influenced by genetics, so he can actually inherit a tendency toward hyper-sensitivities to both food and/or environmental allergens.

CBD Oil For Dogs Allergies

Allergic reactions are produced by your pet’s immune system, and the way his immune system functions is a combined result of both nature (his genetics) and nurture (his environment).

According to medical literature, CBD oil affects many canine biological pathways through the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and functions to optimize cellular interactions involved in the repair and restoration of whole body systems to maintain normal homeostasis. These effects can be at the cellular level as well as in the gene-expression for developing certain sensitivities.

Home Remedies For Dogs Itching

CBD oil as a treatment for Allergic Dermatitis seems to work by modulating the cellular inflammatory response.  In particular, CBD acts as a neuro-immune modulator, or signaling molecule, for communication between cellular structures, tissues and organ systems specifically involved with inflammation & allergic responses.

Cannabidiol curbs inflammation by suppressing the infiltration and functional activity of T cells and macrophages at the site of inflammation; thereby preventing the cascade of cellular immune/allergic response that result in your dog’s sorrowful itching & scratching behavior.

Previous studies concluded that endocannabinoid receptors are “up-regulated” in dogs with atopic dermatitis (skin allergies), which suggests they can respond to this inflammatory condition by producing chemical substances that can reduce inflammation–the major cause of the symptoms of allergies.

But just like other herbal medicines, CBD may not have an immediate, instantaneous effect on this condition. By using a daily CBD phytonutrient supplement it’s possible to suppress or at least moderate the agonizing effects of chronic inflammation for dogs who suffer from chronic inflammation and allergies.

What’s The Best CBD Oil For Dogs?

Although CBD seems to be a potent new therapy to positively influence the inflammatory response and eliminate the tormenting symptoms of seasonal allergies in our furry friends; using CBD for dog allergies is far more effective when used in conjunction with dietary changes and home-environment improvements to avoid needless exposure to external allergens.

The best CBD for a dog’s with allergies & allergy related symptoms is one that you can deliver on a consistent, continuous, well monitored basis, where you know the hemp was grown–how the plant biomass was processed (look for a zero-solvent method)–and most important, look for a company that is transparent with their processes from Seed-to-Shelf. The health of your dog is in your hands!

      Hi Virginia, no medications should ever be substituted without first talking with your pet’s veterinarian. Benadryl is an effective antihistamine–Cannabidiol (CBD) works in a different manner to prevent the localized cellular allergic response from getting started. If your dog has seasonal or environmental allergies using CBD can be an effective, natural preventative approach for holistic healing.

    We have recently started using CBD oil for our dog after a disastrous experience with Apoquel. How long does it take to have an effect? Is it safe to increase the dose? She’s still very itchy and has to use the ‘cone of shame’ all the time. We put baby socks on her feet at night to keep her from licking them.

    We have a service lab with arthritis in her hip. Just started her on Organic Hemp CBD sans any THC. She’s 10 and immediately began acting like she’s 5!!! We’re so happy. We’re also hoping it will aide in her skin allergies that are seasonal.

    Highly recommend this to anyone. She weighs 80lbs. We’re slowly adding 8 drops to her food. No way could we get it under her tongue.

    After reading info here, we may try 3drops, three tones a day.

    She has Glucosamine/Chondrotine in the morning with a mild pain medicine. Her eyes are clear and bright. We feed her organic carrots, cauliflower and apples. She’s a love.

    Her dry food is given to her once a day in a cup of organic chicken bone broth. No salt, she loves it too. We believe in the healing properties of organic hemp CBD.

    WISH more specificity for Pet Parents we’re out there. Like a weight chart. Thanks for all your doing in this area.

    To clarify,

    We feed her more frequently, just once a day we let her meal soak in Organic chicken bone broth.

    She loves fresh vegetables, and an apple with her un furred PaPa. Also has a built in timer for her Organic Coconut Oil (free trade). Dogs love it and their teeth, breath and skin love it too.

    REALLY happy to see CBD Oil is good for allergies. Our little girl definitely has seasonal skin allergies.
