CBD Oils for Cats in Old Age

CBD oils and their properties are amazing. More and more people are implementing this product for treating various health issues, but CBD oil implementation doesn’t stop on humans only. Science has discovered that cannabidiol and its products can significantly help in treating animals as well.

When it comes to usage of CBD oil in pets, the benefits that cannabidiol oils can provide to them are vast – both when it comes to treating various diseases or relieving the aging process. Cats are particularly sensitive to aging, so regular application of hemp products should make this period of life easier for them.

Senior cats may be suffering from various issues that come along with old age. Medical marijuana can be of great help in aging animals, but their owners can do many more things to make the old age period more comfortable for their loving pets. On this link, see how you should take care of your aging cat.

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD is just one of a dozen chemical compounds – cannabinoids – found in the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol is an extract of medical marijuana, and hemp belongs to a strain of marijuana plant species – Cannabis sativa. Both these plants are similar a lot, but they also differ in the concentration of cannabinoids.

Marijuana has much more THC than hemp plants. It also belongs to cannabinoids, and that’s the fact that causes so many doubts in CBD. THC is the mind-altering chemical; CBD is not. Thanks to THC, marijuana has its psychoactive properties. High THC levels are dangerous to your pet, and that’s why oils rich with THC are not something you should give to your four-legged friend.

On the other hand, hemp plants are low in THC and rich in CBD. Cannabidiol is a non-toxic chemical compound that can serve to relieve the pain, relaxing the nerves, and it can also be incredibly helpful with insomnia. It’s important to mention that some pet care manufacturers take additional steps to remove all traces of THC from their oils, making these products ultimately safe.

How Can CBD Oil Help My Senior Cat?

Older cats can suffer from various health issues like arthritis, asthma, multiple seizures, inflammatory bowel diseases, feline lower urinary tract disease, or anxious behavior. Every vet will give you more cat information about their health condition at a certain age.

In case that the health of your loving pet is endangered with any of the mentioned conditions or there’s a risk of developing any of those diseases, you should introduce CBD oil in your cat’s nutrition. This product can relieve the inflammations, reduce the number of seizures, asthmatic or panic attacks.

Mainly, the products that contain cannabidiol will help your pet mostly as pain relief. Watching your beloved 15-year-old cat suffering from various old-age health issues can be heart-broken. Therefore, thanks to cannabidiol, people can now help their furry friends to manage their daily pain sequences with this great product.

Additionally, this oil can be beneficial for cats that suffer from dementia or even if they suffer from higher levels of fear and anxiety. The oil works as a mild sedative, which is fantastic for fearful and anxious felines. That way, their stress levels will be reduced, and the animal will feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Things to Know Before Application of CBD Oil

If you have an old cat that’s suffering from any of the health issues mentioned above, you should think about helping your cat with hemp. Before you make the first step, consult your vet and hear what information they have to share with you about these products.

Some cats may not respond to CBD oils as the majority would, which is normal. Not all humans respond the same at all therapies they get either. Mainly, every kind of treatment may present individual results for both humans and animals. Therefore, it’s essential to talk to your vet before making any further steps.

Moreover, your vet will follow through the entire process and will let you know if there’s anything you should change or even if you should stop with cannabidiol therapy for your cat thoroughly. Never give the treatment to your pet without your vet’s consent.

CBD oil is generally safe for use in cats. You shouldn’t risk with cannabidiol products intended for use in humans, mostly because the concentration of cannabidiol varies. Cats are smaller than humans; logically, they’ll need lower doses of cannabidiol.

On the following page, check the right dose for your feline:


Both cats and dogs can substantially benefit from using cannabidiol products, and people around the world are helping their pets with these magnificent oils. Although this component still causes many doubts (due t its legality and safety of use), some countries legalized its use like most states within the USA and some other countries around the world.

Natural Ways to Boost Your Immune System

With the panic going on across the globe, I thought it might be a good time to share the list of things that our family does to help boost our immune system when sickness is spreading. This is in no way a professional medical opinion, but what has worked for our family, and many others that I know.

There’s some pretty basic things you can do, which most of you probably already know, but I am going to post anyway just in case. There are also some other things we’ve tried that has helped as well. If you have anything to add, let me know and I’ll update the post!

Boosting your immune system isn’t quite as easy as you’d think; it’s not a one step process. It’s several things , a full system really, that needs to function well, which requires balance and harmony.

Natural Ways to Boost Your Immune System

Some of the basics are lifestyle changes, such as:
Don’t smoke
Eat a healthy diet, including plenty of fruits and veggies
Exercise (even walking briskly works!)
Maintain a healthy weight
Drink plenty of water
Drink alcohol in moderation
Get enough sleep
Wash your hands – and your food !
Try to stay calm, and not stressed
Take your vitamins – take extra vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E
Try Probiotics
Try herbs & supplements

Step Outside
Natural light is one of the major contributors to the production of Vitamin D in our bodies. It’s essential for healthy functioning of the immune system, as it helps the body produce antibodies.  Low levels of Vitamin D is one of the major reasons for respiratory problems. So go outside walk around your block, and take in some sun.

Try Mushrooms
Mushrooms are natures way of breaking down organic matters to convert it into fertile soil. one of the healthiest foods on the planet is mushrooms, which are rich in essential nutrients and minerals. Some great types of mushrooms that are good for your immune system is turkey tail mushroom, maitake, shiitake, and tremella. If you don’t like the taste, saute them in a little olive oil with salt, pepper, and garlic. Put in spaghetti sauce (you can hardly taste them!)

Eat Healthy Fats
Healthy fats, such as omega-3 (available in oily fish, flaxeed, and krill oil) it helps increase your bodies production of compounds involved in regulating immunity.

Try Colostrum
Colostrum is referred to the ‘first milk’ from nursing mammals. The advantage of being breast fed is the intake of the protective antibodies that help you fight through the first few years of your life: these antibodies are the reason that some breastfed children are healthier, or catch less colds,or allergies (this is proven in our family, but may not be yours. Breastfeeding is a personal choice, and I am not shaming anyone who doesn’t – or who does. I did both, based on what was best for our family/my children at the time). Anyway, we can harness the antibodies even when we are adults, by trying colostrum. In powder form obtained from cows, goats and other mammals, these antibodies can be mixed with water, juice and shakes to help give you a boost.

Add Garlic and Ginger to Your Meals
Garlic is shown to possess virus-fighting and bacteria killing properties , and ginger is an anti-inflammatory.

Drink Grape Juice
Now this might not hold off other types of infections, but it has worked like magic for my family against the flu. Some say if a family member is sick and you aren’t experiencing any symptoms yet, that you can drink a glass or 2 of grape juice each evening to ward off the illness. It’s said that the grape juice can change the pH in the stomach, making the virus unable to inhabit your body. I”m not sure if this has been proven by science yet or not, but this has worked with our family several times throughout the years.

Try Essential Oils
I know oils isn’t for everyone, but they do pack a powerful punch for some.
Eucalyptus (In one study that appeared in the journal Clinical Microbiology & Infection, eucalyptus essential oil had wide-ranging antibacterial effects on a variety of infectious bacteria in the upper respiratory tract, including strains that cause strep).
Frankincense  (is best known for its highly effective inflammation-fighting capabilities. Four boswellic acids in the resin are responsible for the essential oil’s anti-inflammatory properties and work along multiple inflammatory pathways. Scientific experiments have found a direct link between the oil’s ability to lower inflammation and an enhanced immune system. Used topically, research notes that frankincense essential oil reduces inflammation, kickstarts the immune response, and fosters tissue remodeling for faster healing).
Oregano (is a powerful antibacterial, thanks to high levels of the active compounds: carvacrol and thymol. Studies suggest that these two compounds kill bacterial cells by making the cell membranes more permeable).
Thyme (is essential oil is rich in thymol—a terpene that is an especially active anti-spasmodic that can help reduce coughs.  One study showed that when used in conjunction with primrose, thyme was effective in lessening the cough associated with upper respiratory tract infections. Another study found that a combination of thyme and ivy reduced coughing fits by 68.7 percent in people with acute bronchitis, compared to just 47.6 percent among those taking a placebo. Beyond symptomatic relief, thyme essential oil produces a high level of antimicrobial and non-specific immune activity.  In one experimental study evaluating 120 strains of bacteria common in humans, thyme essential oil was effective against a range of infectious bacteria, including staphylococcus strains and treatment-resistant strains like MRSA).

Try Green Tea
Green Teas are rich in anti-oxidants called Polyphenols. Polyphenols are efficient infection fighters. They protect the body against potential viruses, infections and sickness. Chamomile green tea is known to boost the immune system of the body by de-stressing the body and mind.
