Can Hemp Oil Help Reduce My Dog's Nausea?
We have all been in that situation where our stomachs are churning and we just want to crawl up into a ball and go to sleep. We are so nauseous. It’s not exactly the best feeling in the world. Maybe we ate something that wasn’t too healthy or perhaps we are catching the flu.
That feeling is known as nausea. That ‘yucky’ tummy feeling.
Did you know your dog can become nauseous too? It’s more common than you would think, but dogs are generally able to hide it better and they clearly can’t speak our language to tell us their belly aches.

Hemp Oil as a Solution
Hemp oil isn’t magic, but it may be able to help to reduce or nearly eliminate your dog’s feelings of nausea. Since hemp oil utilizes your dog’s endocannabinoid system, it’s essentially able to figure out why your dog is feeling ‘icky’ and attempt to fix it.
Plus, hemp oil is known to increase a dog’s appetite. Eating may make your dog feel a bit better as well.
Finally, sometimes nausea is accompanied with pain. The endocannabinoid system also assists with the regulation of pain and mood. If your dog is in pain, receptors can search out the ‘pain,’ potentially reduce the pain, and improve your dog’s quality of life.
