I wanted to share information about my recent CBD use. My hope is that others may learn from my experience and find it helpful.
Our veterinarian diagnosed my eleven year old German shepherd with liver and spleen cancer. His ultrasound revealed a large inoperable nodule on his liver and five smaller nodules in his spleen. I asked how many months I could hope to enjoy with him. The veterinarian looked at me, and and responded, "Months? No. Days." She added his pain, indeed, would be great. I left her office with medications, sufficient for ten days.
Needless to say, I did not want my best buddy suffering. I reached out, admittingly, with scepticism, to a friend who grows and processes CBD. Before I knew it, Thorne had a supply of CBD oil, in three forms. In specified amounts, I added the oils to Thorne's water, which he LOVED! I documented dosing and progress, as to some degree, Thorne was an experiment. Also, Thorne refused to eat anything, but for farm fresh eggs, so his diet changed, for the most part, to eggs. Sometimes, he agreed to meats being added to his eggs, but he far preferred egg omelets to any other food choice. The following are my general observations in short:
His cataracts disappeared, within two weeks. His muzzle returned to its original black colour. His German shepherd signature back black saddle returned to shinny black. His energy returned. He rested far less. Thorne had hip issues, but with the oil, he walked ;pts more (without a limp) and wanted to aid in chores again. His personality returned. He was super alert.
All that said, Thorne's results may not represent all results of CBD use. Likewise, his results do not create a promise of positive results. Surely and vividly, it did help him. He lived four months, seemingly with little to no pain. He passed very peacefully on 9 June. Based on Thorne's results, my mother began CBD for arthritis with very promising results and no side effects.
I do hope this helps you, as you consider aiding a pet or consider CBD oil use. Please do not consider this anything more than sharing information.
