Our dogs spend their lives giving us unconditional love, which is why we look at their golden years as a medal of honor. As your dog graduates to their senior years, they will require more support and care than ever. As difficult as it may be to grasp (they’re puppies forever in our hearts, after all!), we see it as an amazing opportunity to give back that unconditional love more than ever before. There’s a reason CHOU2 PHARMA/CHOU2 PET WELLNESS was founded on the mission of unconditional love, because we are so proud to be capable of giving your pets tailored formulas for every chapter of their lives. So give your aging dog the gift of natural, effective pet care in the form of our specialized CBD products like Senior Comfort and Chill. Pet owners looking to care for their aging dog during their golden years can now turn to CBD products for pet care.
From small to large breeds, many senior dogs struggle with joint pain, mobility issues, appetite loss, digestive irregularities, cognitive decline, stress, and more. Senior dogs’ needs are unique and variable, so finding a natural and effective product for them can be challenging. This was the inspiration behind Senior Comfort, which features 5 unique, pure cannabinoids and active ingredients that are tailored to the daily needs of aging dogs. Paired with our fast-acting calming support for particularly strenuous or stressful events such as car rides, storms, visitors, social interactions, and more – your senior pooch will be feeling like a puppy again, without having to worry about unwanted side effects.
Health & Wellness Benefits of CBD for Senior Dogs
The hemp plant consists of special enzymes, terpenes, and molecules, which are also known as cannabinoids. Hemp has little to no THC molecules, meaning there is no psychoactive effect. At CHOU2 PHARMA / CHOU2 PET WELLNESS, we exclusively use hemp-derived CBD and non-psychoactive cannabinoids – and our products contain no THC. There are actually over one hundred cannabinoid molecules, and CBD is just one of them – though people have been using the term CBD to refer to the broad spectrum of non-psychoactive molecules that come from the hemp plant. While broad-spectrum products are primarily CBD, and the non-CBD molecules aren’t found in meaningful amounts, it’s important to know that broad-spectrum products are not pure CBD. That’s where CHOU2 PHARMA is different – we do use pure CBD. We also use pure CBG, CBN, CBC, CBL, and CBDV when called for. Each molecule has a unique effect that can be paired with your dog’s unique needs. We feel it’s a waste of data and opportunity to not use them to their full potential. Molecule purity and quantities help make CHOU2 PHARMA / CHOU2 PET WELLNESS products more effective and targeted, while maintaining safety standards.
In the most simple terms, these cannabinoid molecules interact with receptors in your dog’s endocannabinoid system (we as humans have these systems as well!). Along with the other active ingredients found in our chews and oils, these molecules get to work on any imbalances in your pup’s system. Hip and joint aches, nervousness, loose stool – these are all indicators that something in your dog’s system needs extra support, and those pure, natural ingredients work hard to fill in the gaps.
For older dogs in particular, many health benefits are experienced with CBD supplements – including an elevated quality of life and an improved immune system. But it’s those other molecules we’ve formulated with key active ingredients that make all the difference for the hips and joints, digestive tract, appetite loss, cognitive decline, and nervousness. As we said, senior dogs’ needs are greater and more varied than a younger pup. We want a formula that’s tasty, easy to use, and most importantly – going to work! Senior Comfort has truly become a one-stop-shop for all things golden years. It’s designed for daily use – best taken on an empty stomach, before food.
CBD Soft Chews for Senior Dogs
Chronic health issues in senior dogs, like hip and joint challenges and sensitive stomachs, cannot be addressed through a healthy diet alone. There are key pet products out there designed specifically for this type of support, like our Senior Comfort daily soft chews that create balances in hips and joints, digestive tracts, appetite, relaxation, brain health, and immune systems. This product contains active ingredients that target each of these needs. Senior Comfort is a daily product, so consistency is key. Even on days your dog is feeling or acting a bit more upbeat, keeping a strong foundation of consistent care is crucial to their continued wellbeing.
Chill CBD Oil for Senior Dogs
While Senior Comfort provides daily support for senior pups, there may be situations that bring your aging dog some added stress. Vet visits, grooming appointments, fireworks … these things are scary to a lot of dogs, but can be particularly taxing on seniors. CBD oil for dogs and CBD-based tinctures have been shown to aid with calming and relaxation in those times of extra need. Chill is fast-acting, and can be given up to 3x a day in addition to Senior Comfort or other CHOU2 PHARMA chews. Plus, the omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids support chronic inflammation and immune support – an added bonus for dogs of any age!
Finding What Works for Your Senior Dog
When it comes to pet health, and dog health in particular, senior pets require their own unique, unconditional support, therapies, and care. Asking your veterinarian is the first step in finding the right care regimen as your dog’s needs evolve. The next step is having the right tools. We champion a natural-first approach here at CHOU2 PHARMA / CHOU2 PET WELLNESS, but also specifically design our products to work well with one another, or other therapies and products recommended by your veterinarian. We craft our products with medical precision, using only top tier and tested natural ingredients, including pure cannabinoids.
