Love Your Pet Day
By: Jordan W.
We have always loved our pets in the United States. Whether they are fluffy, feathered, fur free, or anything in between, we can’t get enough of them! Recent studies suggest that over 55% of American households have at least one pet. The human health benefits of pet ownership include: decreased blood pressure, lower cholesterol, improved heart health, higher immune systems, fewer allergies, and reduced risk of stroke. Anyone with pets will tell you they are family, and they take care of us as much as we take care of them.
Not sure if CBD is right for your pet?

Still not sure if CBD is right for your pet? In Michigan, the ban on veterinarians discussing cannabis as treatment was lifted this month. So, talk to your vet and see if CBD is right for your pet.
I first witnessed the benefits of CBD for pets when a 16-year-old Cockapoo named Muffin lost the pep in her step. With only a few daily drops of Medie Edie’s CBD Pet Tincture added to her breakfast, Muff felt the benefits of reduced inflammation and pain relief and started behaving more like her younger self! I saw the drastic change CBD could do for this old girl, and wondered how my own pets would benefit.
Rowdy, my aptly named 6-year-old pitbull is high energy and high anxiety especially in the car and when people come over. Adding to Rowdy’s stress, I started steadily building my dream menagerie during the state lockdowns by rescuing a 10-month-old pitbull named Fiona who had her own healthy reservations about people and general fearful disposition. Three months later, I acquired a savage stray kitten named Oscar from my own backyard. To stave off any new sibling rivalry (and to keep the peace!) I introduced Wise Owl CBD Dog and Cat Treats to our daily routine. I noticed the behavior changes within the hour! The treats were able to ease canine anxiety and calm the chaos of kittenhood. Now, every car ride, trip to the vet, and firework show begins with a CBD treat.
Overall, CBD does not have psychoactive effects and may leave your pets in better health. Whether reducing stress and anxiety in younger pets or easing your elder pet’s pain, Wise Owl’s CBD pet treats can help improve their quality of life. The proper dose is determined by the weight of your pet and listed on each package. – J.W.
