Pets with anxiety and behavior disorders can be a difficult proposition. New routines, travelling, and unfamiliar people can spark anxiety in pets which can lead to a variety of symptoms. Excessive barking, aggressive behavior, destruction of property inside the home, etc. Any of these can be an unwelcome nuisance for pet owners, especially when schedules can be extremely busy. In some cases, this anxiety can be seasonal, however many pets can experience anxiety routinely due to a variety of factors. Some are as simple as loud noises, thunderstorms, new experiences or people. In some cases, adopting a pet from a shelter may require a transition as they build familiarity and trust with their new family or environment.

Zilis UltraCell is a water soluble CBD product friendly to both Cats & Dogs.

There are a few important things to know about dogs when evaluating the right CBD product. A dog has a much higher concentration of cannabinoid receptors in the brain than any other animal or human. Due to this higher concentration of receptors, they can react very badly to THC. In fact, an overdose of THC can cause a condition called static ataxia, which inhibits a dog from being able to preserve equilibrium while standing. For this reason, it is really important to stick with a product that contains only minimal amounts of THC, .03% or less.
In addition to THC it is also very important to use a product that is Xylitol Free. If you are unfamiliar with Xylitol, it is used as a refined sweetener in foods and can be commonly found in chewing gum, mints, and candy.
*Xylitol is a sugar alcohol derived from natural foods but can be very toxic, even in small amounts to dogs. Xylitol ingested by a dog can cause extremely low blood sugar, liver failure, seizures or even death.
**Our Zilis Ultracell products DO NOT contain Xylitol.
Studies have shown that all mammals have an endocannabinoid system and require cannabinoids to remain healthy. A dog would have CB1 receptors which are predominantly found in the organs, glands, nervous system, and brain. The CB2 receptors are mainly found in the cells that regulate the immune system. Utilizing these receptors, the endocannabinoid system can help regulate inflammation by increasing or decreasing the immune response. When a system is overactive, it can lead to allergies or autoimmune disorders, while unresponsiveness can lead to the spread of cancer cells or infections. A CBD oil product such as Zilis UltraCell works with the ECS system to assist with it’s overall health and function. In addition, CBD oil may be able to help support healthy joint function, assist with inflammation, promote normal digestive function, and help the dog with overall homeostasis (balance).
