Can CBD Happy-Furever™ help my dogs with cancer?Updated 8 months ago

CBD Happy-Furever™ could potentially offer supportive benefits for dogs dealing with cancer, though it's important to understand that research is ongoing.

Evidence points to CBD's anti-inflammatory properties, which may help alleviate pain and inflammation often experienced by dogs with cancer. Its analgesic effects could make it a complementary option for pain management, potentially improving the quality of life for canine patients.

Additionally, the anti-anxiety and anti-nausea properties of CBD can be particularly beneficial, helping to reduce the stress and discomfort associated with rigorous cancer treatments such as chemotherapy. These treatments, while targeting cancer cells, can also lead to a reduced appetite and increased anxiety in pets, and CBD may help to mitigate these side effects, making the treatment process more tolerable.

Moreover, there are studies indicating that CBD might possess antitumor properties. Some laboratory and animal studies have suggested that CBD could inhibit the growth and proliferation of certain cancer cell lines. Although these findings are preliminary and more research is needed to establish a direct link between CBD and cancer cell eradication, they are promising and suggest a potential role for CBD in cancer therapy in the future.

Should you like to incorporate this treatment, and you'd like your vet's opinion - it's important to approach your vet from a place of seeking guidance rather than expecting them to advocate for its use. This approach allows you to take responsibility for the choice while seeking their professional insight on how to do so safely.

Not all veterinarians may be fully aware of the potential benefits of CBD as vets are not allowed to prescribe CBD Oil as it's not considered a prescription drug, and many vets would rather just adopt a 'do no harm' approach to protect their practice.
