I have battled depression for most of my life. But it wasn’t until we adopted Peanut Butter Brickle that I understood dogs can also have mental health issues as well.

After all, I always thought that dogs were happy! What a reputation that they have to live up to!

Peanut Butter Brickle was never one of those “happy go lucky” dogs. He exhibited signs of depression and anxiety early on. And until we tried a combination of lifestyle and diet changes and Pet Releaf products, we did not see much improvement.

Part of our responsibility for handling our social media channels and blog is telling you when a product actually does make a difference.

And hopefully, that product can help more dogs and people in the process. This month, we would like to tell you how Pet Releaf products can make a difference for your dog’s mental health and why their mental health is so important in the first place.

What mental illnesses can dogs have? Some known illnesses include separation anxiety, social anxiety, noise anxiety, depression, OCD and PTSD. Of course, just like people, there can be many combinations of those as well. We would like to stress that if you suspect any of these mental illnesses, a visit to your vet should be a priority to determine if there are physical reasons for symptoms as well.

For Brickle, we tried training, vet visits and medications that just didn’t work. It wasn’t until after switching his diet to homemade and increasing his exercise that we noticed his anxiety decreasing. Every dog is different. And this is just our individual experience. But what years of experience! Brickle loved travel and although we have traveled for over six years, we had to make adjustments there as well with trip duration, mode of transportation and weather. But Pet Releaf products, and especially the new Stress Releaf Hemp Oil has been the icing on our cake. Their products are a daily part of the mental health puzzle solution for Brickle.

The new Stress Releaf Hemp Oils are available in two sizes – 300 mg for Cats/Small dogs and 600 mg for Medium/Large dogs. Formulated by veterinarians and designed specifically for calming and managing situational stress, the USDA Organic product contains Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and Ashwagandha.

Pet Releaf’s website explains, “support your dog’s optimal mental health with high-quality CBD from Pet Releaf. CBD works with part of your dog’s nervous system called the endocannabinoid system. CBD, or cannabidiol, helps that part of the nervous system connect and communicate more clearly with the rest of your dog’s body. This is why CBD may be so helpful for a variety of health issues, including mental health. Your dog’s body knows how to heal, but it might need a little support. CBD may do a lot of things to help your dog’s mental health, including helping maintain a normal emotional balance. CBD is also thought to have a calming effect on nerves and can help animals maintain a normal, relaxed disposition.

Pet Releaf offers hemp oil, hemp capsules, and Edibites, which are delicious CBD and herbal supplement chews.”

Recognizing our dog’s individual personality, likes and dislikes is key. Most people may not look at their dogs and wish for good mental health. Instead, they see behavioral issues, illnesses and numerous ailments. But as pet parents, we realize overall happiness for our dogs includes physical and mental health. Thank you for being a caring pet parent!
