Gandalf

This is Gandalf and he was rescued from a high kill shelter in California and now resides in Ontario. When he was 5 years old, he started to have seizures. At his worst, he was having a few a week.  After years of trying different medications and diets, nothing was helping him. We decided to give CannaCanine CBD a try and boy are we ever glad we did. He’s going on 7 months of using the CBD oil and has only had 1 seizure in that time and it was the most minor one he’s ever had. We couldn’t be happier to finally have some relief for our little guy. Gandalf is 11 lbs and we give him 1/2 a dropper a day with his dinner and he now comes and sits and let’s us drop it in his mouth but I think it’s because he knows dinner is the reward :) Thanks CannaCanine!

We got Luna when she was 4 months old. She weighed under 20 pounds and you could see almost every bone in her body. We were told by her previous owner that she wasn’t eating because she was just a picky eater and to not be concerned about her appearance. We knew as soon as we saw herthat she was sickand that she was being neglected. One day her behaviour changed from being a joyful, jumping, playful, nub-wagging puppy to a completely lethargic, arched back, crying out in pain and very fatigued pup.We later discovered that Luna has renal dysplasia, which is a type of kidney disease that results in one or two failed kidneys and usually goes undetected until the kidneys are down to 25% functioningwhich only thensymptoms will arise. Unfortunately, we noticed through an ultrasound that she had one shriveled kidney and one abnormally large kidney that looked inflamed. She also had puppy vaginitis (which is common for female pups)on top of that and a UTI not long after.Needless to say, Luna wasn’t doing so good overall, she was still very underweight, and she was getting other infections along the way which made her even more weak…we didn’t think she was going to make it at one point. But, with the help of pain killers, a diet change and some antibiotics she was getting back on track. Luna still wasn’t the same though, and we didn’t want to keep her on pain killers forever.Therefore, we started talking to relatives about her condition and luckily, we were referred to CannaCanine for CBD oil to help with inflammation. We started her on a bottle right away and within 2 weeks of her being on the 1000 Mg bottle of CBD oil we noticed a significant change in her behaviour. Luna was more alert, playful, pain freeand had a bigger appetite. Months later, when she was due for a check up our vet was shocked to see that 3 out of 4 of Luna’slevels that were too high went back down to normal (which was incredibly exciting news for us. It was a huge improvement).Luna also progressively gained a healthy amount of weightwhich was great! If it wasn’t for CannaCanine and their CBD oil were not sure how Luna would be today. Now to this day she is doing amazing, she is stable and back to being her happy, goofy, loving, active self and for that we couldn’t be happier! We would defiantly recommend CBD oil to other animals who might be suffering.

Thank you so much CannaCanine!!

Love,

Luna, Andrew & Elisa

Charlie

Submitted by cnantais

This is Charlie, he was diagnosed with Bone Cancer back in October 2018. He is a 5 year old Shepherd mix. We had no other choice but to amputate his right hind leg when we got the prognosis. After surgery he was of course given many pain killers but nothing could have prepared us for the Phantom pain he started experiencing. He would cry out and was inconsolable. We started given him small doses of the CBD oil and it was the only thing that would relax him in the moment. We did eventually have to get him a prescription muscle relaxer which helped prevent the spasms, but the CBD oil was still the only thing that could calm him instantly! Now that Charlie is healed and back to himself he still enjoys his nightly dose! This had been a true lifesaver! Thank you!

Jovo

Jovo is our 14 year old husky mix. He has been having small seizures for about a year now, but recently they’ve increased in frequency. I talked to our vet who said they were of an unknown cause ( probably age related) and that they could put him on a prescription if they were starting to interfere with his ever-day life. I did some reading about CBD oil and knew we had to give it a shot.. i am so glad we did. His seizures have decreased so dramatically over the last few days. Continued... the ones he does have are short and almost unnoticeable. I am so happy that Cannacanine was there to answer my questions as well!

Judah

Submitted by @highfivesfork9s

I have been using your CBD oil with Judah, my 13 year old Springer Spaniel, as a part of his natural treatment program for a skin cancer on his ear. This treatment includes prayer, faith, CBD oil, a healthy raw diet, and a couple other essential oils and cream. 

Since hearing of CBD oil, we have tried a couple different brands and have found yours to be of great quality. 

I have found that CBD oil applied topically has greatly helped with minimizing and controlling the affected area, while giving him a dropper by mouth each day has helped him to be at ease. Some of his lumps have even shrunk drastically! Thank the Lord!! 

Judah is such a good boy and deserves the best treatment. This is why I use CannaCanine! And it is awesome to hear that it is affective for anxiety too because I can recommend it to my training clients as another way in helping their dogs relax.

Meeks

Submitted by @rufiothelostboy

Our lovely senior sister Meeks, suffers from arthritis. She's a puppy mill rescue dog so hasn't really ever had the strongest back end to begin with (do to poor breeding) but with age (she's 15) she has gotten more stiff and painful. She's been on CBD oil daily since October, and we are so thrilled that our gal is not only generally walking better but she's been up from her bed more often which is a good sign that she isn't feeling stiff and pain. It has been a long time since she felt strong/good enough to be up from bed and just walk, sit & mingle with company. Thank you for making our gal feel good!

Scheff

Submitted by @Simplejane_chelsea

Scheff is a rescued bichon-poodle from Napa, and was so grateful to be taken off the streets and into the loving home of his dog mama. Being a rescue comes with some separation anxiety, so Scheff can get a little anxious any time he's about to be left alone, or heading into a new environment. He becomes extremely clingy and whines whenever his human is not within eyesight. When traveling, we mix a little bit of CBD oil with some peanut butter an hour before we leave. The result is smooth sailing for both Scheff and his mom with a chill pup ready to take on the world!

Momo

Submitted by @tailofzoro

Our 7-year old Momo had an accident while we were on vacation out of the country.  He had a life-threatening spinal injury, was suffering from immense pain and subsequently being traumatized by the whole ordeal of having to go through surgery, needles, various form of tests and being tied up or confined in a strange place without his owners.

Although Momo was not a socialized dog to begin with, he had never been really in an attack mode until he was left in the hospital for quite some time after the surgery.  His anxiety and painful experience had turned him into a different dog.

Momo soon started using CBD oil as we believe that CBD could significantly reduce chronic inflammation and pain.   We actually noticed that Momo was not suffering from pain and so far he does not have chronic inflammation at all.

We also noticed that CBD oil does reduce Momo's post-traumatic anxiety behaviors.  He is much calmer and does not exhibit any hostile or aggressive behavior.

We will continue to use CBD oil on Momo and we hope this will help him on his road to recovery!

Dahlia

Submitted by @2cheekybitches

Over the past year we have been noticing that our senior Dogo Argentino, Dahlia, has been showing signs of pain in her knees and hips due to arthritis and aging. Dahlia had TPLO surgery at 1.5 yrs old and a second surgery on the same knee to remove the plates, screws and some scar tissue at 3.5 yrs old. It started  with some shaking when she would try to get out of bed in the morning and before we knew it she couldn’t jump up on our bed and just wasn’t running and playing as much as she used to. 

Dahlia is given glucosamine and turmeric paste regularly and we tried cartrophen injections for a while, as well. Nothing was making a big improvement on her quality of life and we were determined to do just that!! After researching CBD oil we thought it would be worth a try. Luckily, through social media, I found CannaCanine and their wonderful products made just for dogs. 

In the beginning, we didn’t notice much of a change. After about a week on her CBD oil, we started to notice her having more spunk and energy. She has now been taking the CBD oil for 2.5 weeks and it has changed her. She is still a bit stiff in the mornings but, we took her out to the forest yesterday evening and she ran more than she has in years. She was jumping over logs and climbing rocky hills, she was bouncing and prancing all over the place. It was a very joyous moment to see her acting young again! 

Thank you CannaCanine for a wonderful product!

Draper

Submitted by @sarabudhwani

Draper is a five year old beagle who frequents the streets and parks of downtown Toronto. He loves to explore and is always on the hunt for new things (or people) to sniff. Once Draper ate some left over food someone littered in a flowerbed. Later that night, he began to experience indigestion and stomach trouble. I gave him some CBD treats and it helped to settle his stomach through the night. By the next day, his stomach issues were resolved. He was ready to go for our morning walk!

Rudy

Submitted by @thebirdboys_gsp

Rudy has bone cancer which puts a lot of strain on his system. It is painful and very exhausting as it drains his energy. However CBD oil has helped him increase his energy level and take away the inflammation in his leg. It also helps to relieve the pain caused by the cancer. CBD has made a huge improvement in the quality of his life! Rudy can now enjoy his days better in peace and comfort through CBD.

Pickles

Contributed by @miss.picklesthepug

When we got Pickles as a foster she was close to being 10 pounds overweight. We suspected she was overweight for a the majority of her life and this caused moderate arthritis in her hips. She has lost 8.5 pounds to date which has helped with her. We decided to try CBD oil as a way to help her arthritis pain. We noticed Pickles would bunny hop and she couldn't play for long although she wanted to! Since starting the CBD oil treatments, within a couple days her energy has increased, she wants to play for longer periods of time, and now she runs with only the occasional bunny hop! Two small drops of CBD oil daily is all Pickles needs to put the kick back in her step!

Lyla

Contributed by @fourtwentymarketing

Lyla is a sixteen year old Jack Russell Terrier who suffers from numerous health issues related to old age and anxiety. There was a rapid decline in her health and demeanor over the last couple of months. She would constantly shake due to stress when I left the house and even when I was home. Lyla used to be at the door ready to me with her tail wagging,  alert, and wanting to be let out. Instead, I would come home to find she had urinated all over the floor. Her energy levels were too low for her to even get up and say hi. Lyla was raised in an Italian household so naturally she loved food. Carrots, bananas and pasta being among her favorites. She would hardly touch these foods due to the loss of her appetite. With no appetite, she was lethargic and slept all day. Fetch was of little interest to her as this required too much effort. Even when I asked her to give me paw for a treat she wouldn't be interested... in trick nor treat. Our friends at CannaCanine were beginning to bake CBD dog treats and we started to give them to Lyla. The CBD treats reignited her fiery Jack Russell temperament and spirit in just over a month. At first, it was the little things I noticed like her greeting me at the door and the sudden return her of appetite. She began to bark again to be let out and would demand for food and treats! Lyla was back to chasing squirrels and barking at intruders that threatened her backyard domain. She doesn't shake or have anxiety anymore but seeks out affection and her tail is back to wagging happily. CBD has helped Lyla rejuvenate herself so she can enjoy her senior years in comfort...much to the dismay of neighborhood squirrels!

Ladybug

Contributed by @ladybugthepug

Three years ago Ladybug went through a serious surgery for a condition called Intervertebral Disc Disease. It is when the squishy parts of your disc collapse and compress on your spinal cord. Ladybug gave me a huge scare that day when she suddenly couldn't walk properly! Luckily, she had a fantastic team of doctors and specialists to help her through. Since the surgery, Ladybug has done well. However, Ladybug can still have stiff back days! One of my most favourite go to natural treatments is hemp oil (cannabadiol)...also known as CBD. The major misconception is that dogs will get high off of CBD. This is COMPLETELY UNTRUE! Cannabadiol does not contain any psychoactive components like THC. It provides great pain control by targeting receptors in your nervous system! Perfect for Ladybug so she can continue to live a happy life pain free!

Blaise

Contributed by @Lifelike_blaise_boz_stella

Blaise started to experience seizures when he was just a year old. The seizures started to be mild and were few at the start. I thought nothing of it at first because they were so infrequent. When Blaise was around two and a half he started having partial seizures. These affected half of his body and he would suddenly tumble to the ground.  This was absolutely horrifying to watch as they came often without warning. 

To help combat his seizures I was recommended to give him phenobarbital. Phenobarbital is a common medicine given to dogs to help treat seizures. Several people told me to hold off on the phenobarbital treatments due to the ill side effects on dogs. I decided to wait before starting treatment to see if the seizures would return. By Blaise's third birthday he finally had a full seizure. My worst fears had finally manifested!

Our vet immediately put Blaise on a high dose of phenobarbital for every 12 hours. Blaise became so drugged up that he would lose his balance and fall over. The worst of it was when he fell down twelve flight of stairs! I hated seeing him like this. His perky and fun personality was gone, replaced by lethargy and sadness. Blaise became a shell of the fun dog he once was. 

A a nurse I had read articles on the beneficial effects of CBD oil on seizures. I started to research natural and alternative medicine for canines to learn more about CBD oil. At first I was cautious but decided to try it on Blaise. It was the best decision I could make! I was glad I ordered the CBD treatment. Despite the process of weaning him off of phenobarbital, the first dose of CBD oil made him more alert. Little by little, I got him off the phenobarbital.  

Today, Blaise is seizure free and no longer taking phenobarbital. All thanks to CBD oil!
