How Therabis™ is Saving Our Summer #GrabTheLeash
Summer is full of potential stressors for anxious dogs, young and old. Summer storms bring thunder and lightning. Road trips mean long drives in the car, and then there’s every anxious dog parent’s “favorite” thing in the whole world… fireworks! This summer, we aren’t letting stressors get in the way. We’re living life to the fullest, our anxious senior Helo included!
Over the last few months, I’ve been researching about CBD oil and it’s calming properties. Then we got the opportunity to try out Therabis™ Calm and Quiet Treat Supplements.
I figured we didn’t have anything to lose and Helo had everything to gain, so why not give it a try?
So What’s The Hype About Hemp and CBD Oil?
There’s been a big movement recently towards more natural remedies for both humans and our beloved pets. One that I firmly believe in!
In the realm of veterinary science, cannabinoids are one of the most exciting and promising therapies being studied today. One in particular that has really been growing in popularity is cannabidiol, or CBD. CBD oil has been shown to help dogs find relief from a wide range of issues, everything from pain and mobility to itchiness and anxiety.
Where Does CBD Come From?
CBD is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in hemp that’s classified as a cannabinoid. Despite common misconceptions, hemp is not another euphemism for marijuana. In fact, hemp and marijuana are two very different plants.
Unlike marijuana, hemp has only trace amounts of THC. It will NOT get your dog high.
How Does It Work?
Like all other cannabinoids, CBD interacts with your pet’s endocannabinoid system (or ECS). ECS is the central regulatory system in control of your dog’s bodily processes such as digestion, mood and sleep.
Why Choose Therabis™?
There are plenty of companies out there offering CBD treats, but not all are created equal. Therabis was founded by a veterinary expert, Dr. Stephen M. Katz, who has spent a lifetime researching, developing and perfecting Therabis’ natural formulations, resulting in unparalleled and specific products. Backed by 25 years of veterinary expertise and powered by whole-plant hemp oil, their products are designed to address the specific areas that challenge your pet.
Therabis offers 3 different formulas to support different health needs safely, naturally and effectively:
Calm and Quiet is Calming Care for your Canine
Therabis has two different Calm and Quiet products, both designed to help dogs with anxiety issues. The original Calm and Quiet formula comes in powder form and is administered daily in your dog’s food. Helo’s anxiety is much more situational, so we decided to try Therabis’ new Calm And Quiet Treat Supplements!
Therabis uses naturally occurring cannabinoids in these treats to reduce stress levels and help dogs keep their cool. They leverage whole plant hemp oil, in concert with L-theanine, in a fast-acting, easy to administer form to help “in the moment.”
Helo’s been with us for five years now, but he had only been a member of the family for one day before we got hit with our first huge thunderstorm. It lasted for HOURS. The poor guy was so scared that he went and hid in the closet. I sat in the dark with my brand new terrified dog, stroking his fur and trying to reassure him. I knew right then that we had to find something that was safe, affective, and fast-acting for sudden anxiety-inducing situations.
A Calmer, Quieter Helo Thanks to Therabis
Helo starts to get anxious a good 20-30 minutes before a storm hits. Blue skies, puffy white clouds, and he starts to pant, spin and pace. For the last month, we’ve been giving Helo two Therabis Calm & Quiet Treat Supplements at the first sign of anxiety.
I am not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that Therabis has been life-changing for Helo. It is by far the best remedy we have ever tried for his anxiety and we are never going back!
It used to be that if a storm showed up out of the blue, Helo would be trying to climb the baby gate on the stairs to find a place to hide. He’d pant uncontrollably. He’d pace and spin in circles and be inconsolable. Now, once the treat supplements kick in, he doesn’t pant or pace or spin AT ALL. He doesn’t try to run and hide. Now, Helo just lies down near us and rides out the storm (pun intended). The treats also taste great, which makes giving them to Helo a breeze!
I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to finally be able to help my dog in times of stress!
#GrabTheLeash And Live Life’s Adventures
Summer stressors like thunderstorms, car rides, and fireworks used to really get in the way of living life and having fun for Helo. Now that we have a remedy that really works, we’re unstoppable! No more canceling camping trips because of weather forecasts or stressing about traveling. We just grab his treats and we’re good to go!
If you have an anxious dog, do yourself a favor and try Therabis! You won’t regret it.
Thanks for reading,
Debbie & Helo
