CBD for Your Dog's Heart Health

Heart health is not an issue just for elderly dogs. Heart health is something, like teeth, that deteriorates over time and not overnight. The upside is that because it takes time, there are easy ways to help manage and maintain your dog’s heart health while she is healthy! This page discusses how you can keep your dog’s heart healthy and what CBD can do to help. For more general info on CBD’s uses, check out our CBD Education page! 

Heart issues can be the result of a variety of factors that range in severity. Heart related problems are usually congenital (present at birth) but can also be acquired. Dogs are increasingly susceptible to heart problems as they get older, but some develop them at a young age or are born with them. Here are some of the most common issues related to the heart:

• Heartworm disease

• Congestive heart failure (CHF)

• Arrhythmias

• Valvular disease

• Cardiomyopathy

• Fainting/collapsing

• Labored breathing

• A persistent dry cough

• Swollen abdomen (from fluid build up)

• Lack of energy and/or difficulty exercising

• Reduced appetite and weight gain or loss

So How Can CBD Help My Dog’s Heart? 

CBD can potentially help maintain heart health in multiple ways: by reducing stress that may be associated with the symptoms of the disease, by potentially lowering blood pressure, and by stimulating appetite.

Naturally, because CBD helps the endocannabinoid system maintain equilibrium in the body, these benefits can help the overall cardiovascular system as well by aiding with lowering your dog’s blood pressure. 

What else do I need to know about using CBD for my dog’s heart?

• Lessening any related stress or nervousness

There hasn’t been much research yet on the effect of CBD for animal heart health, but it has generally been seen as a helpful supplement to your dog’s regimen because CBD is generally well-tolerated and has minimal side effects that would affect your pup negatively.
