In 2017, my 10 year old dog Skip started to freak out when I Ieft him alone or tried to board him. It has gotten much worse. This week after returning from a 2 day road trip, I went to pick him up from a friend. My anticipation was growing as her house got closer. I was excited to see my old dog and have him jump into my arms and nuzzle my neck.
You could never have prepared me for what was waiting. Skip didn’t even greet me at the door. When I finally coaxed him, he limped toward me, tail wagging and sat down. I whisked him home and tried to figure out what was wrong. What is going on? There was never a whimper. He just walked around gingerly and slept most the day. After always being an extremely active pet I wondered; did his years just suddenly catch up with him? That night I lifted him onto the bed. Panic set in when he didn’t perk up the next day. I am going to have to call the vet.
The vet wants $140 just to see him. My gut felt sick – my wallet was empty. I called my Mom to console me. “He is 70 in dog years, dear. Why don’t you buy him the doggie CBD?” she asked. Whaaat? Mom is so hip. She started taking daily CBD capsules for Parkinson’s in late 2016 when it only came by prescription. NOW (since 2018) it has been legalized in all 50 states. By maintaining her CBD dose for the past 2 years, her tremors have subsided and some memory improved. As we throw around phrases like “miracle cure” and “plant panacea,” I start googling CBD for pets. FOUR HOURS of research later…clearly CBD is being used for pets as a powerful pain killer and is absolutely revered for its natural anti-inflammatory relief. Do you know about the other advantages CBD has to offer pets?

These are NOT clinical results or claims. This list was compiled based on one guy’s extensive internet research. I felt my research was validated after hearing first hand reports from family & friends. They were successfully using hemp oil products to restore health and well-being to their 4 legged friends.
It’s been 4 days since Skip started taking his hemp oil. He weighs 22 lbs. so his daily dosage consists of 10 drops, twice a day; mixed in tuna (don’t tell the cat). It’s early, but so far I have seen his sleep greatly improve and surprisingly…mine has too!
