CBD interacts with the body via the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a biological system of neurotransmitters present in the bodies of all mammals. All animals have cannabinoid receptors in their bodies. CB1 receptors are found in the brain and central nervous system, whilst CB2 receptors are located in the peripheral organs, muscles, cardiovascular system, and immune system cells. Animal brain sends signals via these receptors to many parts of the body.

The signals transmitted in this system can:
  • contribute to a healthy cell growth
  • regulate undesired neurological responses in case of seizures and inflammation-induced pain responses
  • help cells to fight free radicals
  • help the body to fight cancer and the growth of tumour cells

Studies show that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is very important as it controls virtually everything: from relaxation to eating, sleeping, various types and causes of inflammation, and even cognitive functions.

ZooActive 3% CBD Oil is extremely effective in treating many health problems your pets might be suffering from.

We recommend using ZooActive 3% CBD Oil to help with the following conditions:

Chronic pain and inflammation processes
Cannabinoids in CBD are extremely effective for pain relief. Many scientists believe that CBD is becoming a new successful medium in chronic pain treatment and relief. Studies show that CBD can:
  • relieve pain (including neuropathies and neuropathic pain)
  • mitigate the effect of inflammation on oxidative stress (which causes degeneration and premature ageing)
  • reduce inflammation in acute pancreatitis
  • have an anti-inflammatory effect, thereby helping animals suffering from joint and muscle pain
  • reduce the digestion tract inflammation (connected with inflammatory bowel disease – IBD)

  • Anxiety disorders
    It is known that CBD reduces signs of distress (anxiety) in healthy people and those suffering from anxiety disorders. Moreover, CBD has been found to have a positive effect on dogs suffering from anxiety disorders. The cause of anxiety disorders is usually unknown; an ordinary afternoon walk with your dog might turn into a real nightmare.

    Dogs go through various socialisation phases when they are young. This is when they can develop various types of fear from imminent danger. The dogs who start showing signs of anxiety can later develop unwanted and uncontrolled urination at home or uncontrolled chewing of objects and other items in the house; they can start growling at people around them, become aggressive and destructive.

    Moreover, young dogs often suffer from a well-known type of anxiety, that is, separation anxiety. Whenever you leave home (e.g. go to work), your dog might be in distress. He will show this by acting destructively in your home until your return.
    Luckily, you can use CBD by prior consultation with your vet. This way you can help your hairy pet to be calm and relaxed again. In addition, our product can improve your pet’s overall wellbeing and boost their overall immune system.

    Loss of appetite, digestive problems and inflammatory bowel disease
    Studies on animals have shown extremely beneficial effects of CBD on animals suffering from inflammatory and non-inflammatory bowel problems. Hemp was used already by Ancient Greeks and Romans to treat colic in horses and digestive problems in cattle. Today, we know that CBD prevents colon inflammation – colitis (IBD) and restores normal intestinal motility in inflammatory bowel disease. Moreover, it has an antibiotic effect. Perhaps your pet is just picky because you used to frequently change their food and they now only want to have treats and food from your table. This can all lead to various digestive problems such as occasional vomiting, diarrhoea or constipation, accumulation of gas in the intestines and bad breath resulting from stomach inflammations. In such animals, CBD reduces inflammation in intestines, nausea, vomiting, increases appetite, and improves overall health.

    Problems with arthritis, joints and mobility
    Arthritis is one of the most common orthopaedic problems in dogs. It usually affects large breeds, but smaller ones are also not immune. It appears in different age periods. The most common cause is tissue injury resulting from joint trauma, stress, infection, and immune system malfunctions. In such cases, joints cannot regenerate quickly enough and, as such, are more exposed to inflammations and infections. Such joints are extremely painful, making the movement of the affected animal difficult or even impossible. In addition to conventional medicines, CBD has a huge analgesic and anti-inflammatory potential. Veterinarians have lately been using it regularly with great success in orthopaedic patients suffering from the above-mentioned problems also because it has no side effects.

    Fur and skin problems
    CBD is effective in various skin problems. Your pet may be scratching for various reasons, of which there are so many that you probably cannot recognise the right one correctly without the help from a vet. But you must pay attention to the following causes, which lead to skin modifications and, consequently, your pet’s itchiness:
  • Allergies: dogs and cats have allergies. These can result from food oversensitivity, environmental factors such as house dust, mites, pollen of various plants, fleabites and bites of other insects, or oversensitivity to cosmetic products used for your pet’s care. The second most common allergy in dogs is atopic dermatitis. This is a chronic inflammatory skin disease.
  • Parasites: Scabies, fleas, ticks, and demodicosis are frequent causes of irritated and changed skin, leading to itchiness.
  • Bacterial infections: the most important skin conditions are folliculitis and impetigo. The bacteria that are usually part of the normal skin flora may in certain animals result in chronic skin problems.
  • Fungal infections: yeasts are a common cause of ear and pad inflammation in dogs and cats.
  • Hormonal imbalance: too much or too little of certain hormones can cause itchiness.
  • Medicines: certain medicines cause skin modifications and the resulting itchiness

  • Always consult your vet regarding diagnosis and therapy in case of itchiness. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory effect, CBD exhibits a very positive effect in the treatment of inflamed and itchy skin. Moreover, studies confirm that it successfully eliminates parasites.

    CBD will help to make your pet’s old-age period nicer and longer. Pet owners always want their pets to live as long as possible. The average life span of dogs is 10 to 12 years. Smaller breeds live longer and can reach the age of 15 years and more. The average life span of cats is between 10 and 18 years.

    Many pets are lucky to enter the old-age period in a good health condition. But sooner or later, they too develop various problems, usually in the form of movement problems, loss of appetite, allergies, chronic bowel disease, arthritis, hip dysplasia, patella dislocations and pain of various causes.

    Old animals commonly develop cardiovascular diseases, exhibited as exhaustion, frequent coughing and difficulty breathing. This is a result of heart valve disease and an enlarged heart, which causes the leakage of fluid into the lungs.

    Kidney failure is one of the most common diseases in old kittens. This causes an increased amount of toxins in the blood of an old animal, resulting in the loss of appetite and vomiting. If your pet shows an increased need for drinking and urinating, your vet should consider the possibility of diabetes and hyperthyroidism.

    Autoimmune diseases, allergies, chronic inflammatory disease, and pancreatitis also frequently affect your old pets. Some of these diseases are accompanied by severe pain. Vets must treat such animals; sometimes, therapies are for life and we must eliminate the causes of problems from the environment. CBD plays an important role in restoring normal immune system functioning and, moreover, it has strong anti-inflammatory effects.

    Glaucoma causes problems to older animals. Glaucoma and cataracts are very painful, so if treatment and pain management are unsuccessful, it is recommended to remove the affected eye. CBD can relieve pain to a certain degree and help the conventional therapy to achieve possible improvement or even recovery.

    Sleep disorders
    CBD effectively reduces anxiety, which is an important factor in mitigating sleep disorders and improving sleep quality. Studies have shown that CBD increases the total quantity of sleep and reduces insomnia.

    CBD has proven to be effective in reducing insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain.
    Small dosages of CBD stimulate the state of being awake and reduce drowsiness during the day, which is important for daily activity. This leads to a strong and balanced day-night sleep cycle.

    CBD is known to reduce REM phase disorders in patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease and those suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder.

    Weakened immune system
    CBD effectively reduces the inflammatory response. Cannabinoids reduce the body’s inflammatory response, thereby affecting signs of illness. CBD affects the immune system in many different ways, from the induction of apoptosis in activated immune cells, suppression of cytokines and chemokines in places of inflammation, and to super-regulation of FoxP3+ regulatory T-cells.

    CBD was tested in several experimental autoimmune disease models, such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and hepatitis. CBD can protect patients from pathogenesis through induction of various anti-inflammatory pathways.
    CBD is also effective in certain types of cancer accompanied by chronic inflammation. In such patients, CBD directly stops tumour growth and reduces inflammation and tumour angiogenesis.
