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!

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

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

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!
