Health and Wellness for Our Aging Pets

As our pets settle into their older age, pet owners may notice changes in their furry companions' behavior, including heightened anxiety and discomfort from inflammation. Fortunately, the growing popularity of CBD products offers a promising solution for alleviating these issues in dogs.


CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound derived from the cannabis plant known for its therapeutic properties. When it comes to our canine friends, CBD can play a significant role in promoting their well-being, especially during the winter season.


Here's how CBD products can benefit your pet:

*Anxiety Relief:

There are many reasons why our pets can get anxious.This often includes unfamiliar sounds like gusty winds, thunderstorms, or fireworks during holidays. Dogs may experience heightened anxiety during these events. CBD has shown promise in promoting a sense of calm and relaxation by interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid system, helping dogs navigate stressful situations more comfortably.

*Inflammation Management:

Rainy cool days can exacerbate joint pain and inflammation, particularly in older dogs or those with pre-existing conditions like arthritis. CBD's anti-inflammatory properties may assist in reducing discomfort, allowing dogs to move more freely and comfortably. This can be particularly beneficial for maintaining their overall mobility and joint health.

*Immune System Support:

For all seasons our furry little friends are always at risk of infections, especially ears. CBD's potential to modulate the immune system could aid in bolstering your dog's natural defenses against common illnesses. This added support can be particularly valuable during times when their immune systems may be more vulnerable.


In conclusion, CBD Amercian Shaman products offer a holistic approach to supporting your dog's well-being during the colder months. From anxiety relief to inflammation management, these natural remedies have the potential to enhance your furry friend's quality of life, promoting a happier and healthier winter season.
