How did Doggie CBD help me?
I am a mixed breed (boxer/retriever) senior dog (11 ½ yrs. old) with complex health issues: seasonal allergies, atrial fibrillation, cardiac enlargement, Cushing’s syndrome, hip dysplasia, and arthritis.
Over the years, I have torn both cranial cruciate ligaments (CCL), which is the same as the ACL in humans. They both required surgery with a metal plate to secure. I recovered well and enjoyed the benefits of the initial surgeries. However, hip dysplasia and arthritis have become severe and disabling as I have aged. My pain has worsened over time and traditional medications did not help. I needed codeine three times a day to help me enjoy a normal doggie life. The veterinarian did not feel comfortable to continue the codeine, but I was in pain. They suggested alternative medications and treatments so my parents started to do some research.
They found that CBD can be very helpful and safe in pets. They started me on a low dose of Full Spectrum CBD Tincture 2 times a day with my meals. I weigh 63lbs, so initially, I took 15mg two times a day. I didn’t even know it – no bad taste and no side effects. So, I increased to 30mg two times a day. Within a couple of weeks, I was able to completely stop the codeine! Now I am able to take walks and play with my 3-year-old brother. I can gently take the steps. I even started acupuncture to supplement the CBD.
I still work closely with my veterinarian and cardiologist for my other needed treatments and special heart medications.
