Hemp Oil May Relieve Symptoms of Canine Dementia and Support Healthy Brain Function
Researchers are turning their attention to hemp oil as more and more people are discovering its powerful benefits. Hemp oil is not just helpful for people anymore because senior dogs are beginning to reap the benefits too.
Hemp oil is non-psychoactive, and is extracted from the seeds of hemp plants. When the seeds are pressed together they secrete an oil that contains Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, Omega-9, GLA (gamma linolenic acid), amino acids and healthy proteins. Sometimes, this compound can contain low levels of CBD.
In Murphy’s case, I decided to try the stronger CBD oil, since he wasn’t eating anything on his own. Had his symptoms been milder in the beginning, hemp oil would have been my first choice.
Here are some of the benefits hemp oil can offer senior dogs:
- Protects the nervous system
- Relieves pain
- Helps to increase appetite
- Reduces inflammation
- Relieves stress and anxiety
- It’s heart-healthy
- Helps seizures and epilepsy
