Is Hemp Seed Oil Safe For Dogs?
Due to recent legislation, hemp oil is legal in Australia for human and animal consumption. There are certain caveats, however, such as that the total cannabidiol (CBD) content of the hemp oil is 0.0075% (75mg/kg) or less, and the total tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of the oil is 0.005% (50mg/kg) or less. These stringent requirements show that the Australian government is cautious about the health effects of hemp products, as you should be for yourself and your pets.
THC particularly can be toxic to dogs and cats, but the first good news about Hempooch Hemp Seed Oil products is that they contain neither THC or CBD. Because the oil comes from the seeds and not the leaves, flowers, or stem of the cannabis plant, hemp seed oil has no psychoactive or hallucinogenic drugs. What our hemp oil for dogs and cats does harbor, however, is a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and helpful bioactive compounds that can provide your beloved pet with quite a few health benefits. The scientific and medical literature is still in its early stage about exactly what effects hemp oil for dogs has, although the second bit of good news is that the majority of veterinarians consider it harmless.
Hemp Oil Dogs Can Use, Worry-Free
The truth about hemp seed oil is that it has no real risk associated with its consumption, as nearly every available research has shown (including this one). Hemp oil for dogs from Hempooch is 100% Australian-made, produced by a cold-pressing method of extracting oil from hemp seeds similar to the way olive oil is made from olives. What you should keep in mind is that an allergic reaction is possible - as with any food - so it’s a good idea to give your dog only the recommended dosage and observe them for itchiness, redness, swelling, and other adverse reactions. You can also ask your vet about how hemp oil dogs eat with food or treats could affect the nutritional balance they already receive.
The potential health benefits of hemp oil for both dogs and cats far exceed the possible dangers. Hemp seeds are considered a “superfood”, having excellent nutritional and health-promoting properties, which are derived mainly from their high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (especially those belonging to the Omega-3 series), as well as in phenolic compounds which ongoing research hypothesizes may be effective in the prevention of common diseases like gastrointestinal disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, and others. Hemp oil for dogs and cats shows an ability to improve joint pain, help with arthritis, lessen inflammation in the skin, and even improve the health of fur. In addition, hemp seed oil is an excellent alternative to fish oil (particularly salmon oil) for cats.
With no evidence showing hemp oil dogs consume or take topically causes harm, and only evidence on the contrary of its amazing benefits, why not add it as a supplement for your pet? Shop for our concentrated, safe, and effective hemp seed oil products at the Hempooch Online Store today.
