My miniature poodle recently turned fourteen years old, however he has been our family pet since my kids were truly little.
- He doesn’t hear or see as well as he used to.
He was having problems with sore joints, muscles and teeth. I had to switch from dry pet food to the softer variety in the cans. I make sure to carry him up and down the stairs. When I took my poodle for his checkup, the vet recommended multiple weird kinds of medicines. I looked them up and didn’t like the side effects, however since I’m careful about what I put into my body, I was reluctant to subject my pet to harmful synthetic medicines. I started looking for an alternative. I entirely didn’t want our family pet in pain. I came across multiple articles promoting cannabis for treating pain and inflammation! Not only have a lot of people found relief but there are success stories for pets and cats as well. I learned that CBD is entirely safe for critters… Just like humans, pets have an endocannabinoid system that is responsible for everything from pain to sleep, focus and mood. CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that influences receptors in the endocannabinoid system, offering the potential of all sorts of medicinal benefits. I paid a visit to the local cannabis dispensary and was both surprised and impressed by the selection of products designed certainly for pets. I am able to purchase pet CBD tinctures, oils, capsules and a variety of treats. My poodle prefers the treats. I’ve noticed a significant improvement in his level of interest and mobility. He no longer whimpers when he jumps up onto the couch. He is abruptly interested in playing fetch again.
