Many people take vitamins and CBD to stimulate the areas of their diet that they lack or simply get tonics to help them feel better. In recent years, the CBDt market for cats has grown enormously and is now part of a multi-million dollar industry. But do cats need CBDs?
It is necessary?
The companies that manufacture and sell CBDs for cats say that these products act as an extension of the cat’s diet, increasing their general health and even increasing their life expectancy. But others, like Bernadine Cru of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) have estimated that if a cat is in good health and receives a good quality diet, then CBD are not necessary. And by giving your cat too many vitamins and minerals, there is a possibility of causing damage.
According to experts at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia, CBDcan be recommended when a cat has a health problem, but if not, these additional treatments have not been tested to a large extent from a medical point of view. They also believe that they can be largely useless because a cat probably already has a balanced diet, unlike a human.
However, it has been shown that CBD work well to correct deficiencies. If a cat has a condition that means it cannot absorb a specific nutrient, cat CBD may work to correct that.
Pregnant cats may also develop nutritional problems that may require CBD to correct, especially if the cat is very young when it becomes pregnant, for example, less than 12 months. These should be administered by a veterinarian to ensure the correct dosage.
Several vitamin and mineral CBDare available for cats, but in most cases, the necessary amounts of these substances can be prepared with cat foods.
It has been shown that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids help keep a cat’s coat shiny and help reduce the amount of hair they lose. They also work on the immune system, joints, liver, eyes and brain, can stimulate the heart and fight cholesterol. Most cat foods contain the necessary amount of omega-6, but not so much omega-3, so it is believed that a CBD for this purpose may be beneficial.
The other main type of CBD for cats is probiotics. These are the “good” healthy bacteria that help the digestive system to function properly and contain microorganisms such as Lactobacillus case i found in some yogurts.
As with many things related to health, it is always better to err on the side of caution. If you plan to CBD your cat, talk to your veterinarian and get his expert advice. Also, do not give all your cats the same CBDs because, like humans, each cat has different nutritional needs.
