The world is becoming more aware of the benefits of natural supplements in humans, so is it any wonder that thousands of dog owners are extending these benefits to their furry friends as well?
Hemp oil for dogs is one of nature’s best natural supplements.
Made from hemp seed oil, it’s basically like a little bottle of happiness for your bestie. Here are the six great benefits of hemp oil for dogs.
Improves the skin and coat
Hemp seed oil in your dog’s daily diet helps prevent nasty and uncomfortable skin conditions including eczema, dandruff, dry nose, rashes and atopic dermatitis. Not only that, but it also moisturises the skin and reduces shedding (yes, you read that right. Less fur on your floors!)
It’s the perfect balance of omegas 3, 6 and 9
Did you know that physiologically, dogs can’t make their own omega-3 fatty acids? For those who aren’t pet nutritionists, omega-3 can help with skin conditions, allergies, kidney function, heart disease, cognitive function, arthritis, and more.
Hemp oil for dogs contains lots of omega-3 as well as omega-6 fatty acids to help reduce inflammation and autoimmune diseases, and omega-9 to keep things balanced.
High in antioxidants
Because there is almost nothing sadder than a dog that’s feeling sick, you can give your dog hemp seed oil full of vitamin E and vitamin A to help their immune system fight any chemicals, drugs, pesticides and toxins that your dog may pick up in its day-to-day life.
Improves gut health and wellbeing
If you have a pup with a weak tummy and don’t like introducing new foods, we can understand your apprehension in starting them on a new supplement. However, unlike lots of other supplements on the market, hemp oil for dogs is highly digestible and perfect for dogs that have sensitive stomachs or struggle to extract all the nutrients from other parts of their diet.
We know that every dog owner would give anything to make sure their active dog can avoid joint pain, arthritis or inflammation later in life, and hemp seed oil could help here. It contains Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which helps prevent inflammation in general, which benefits conditions such as arthritis as well as skin inflammation.
While we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves here because the studies are still preliminary, current scientific research is showing positive signs in the studies testing whether hemp oil alone can reduce anxiety in dogs. We recommend using our Hemp seed oil combined with our Hemp Anxiety Aid to help reduce your dog’s anxiety, stress and tension.
