Considering THC-free CBD for your pet?
Thinking about trying CBD for your pet? …here’s a success story that might help you decide.
My client, Debbie, came to the grooming salon to see me practically in tears. Her beloved Golden Retriever, Sunny, was acting very strangely lately, and she wanted to talk to someone who knew her dog well. Sunny was 11 years old and had a few health problems… mostly due to aging, but still feeling good and acting like herself. Until a few weeks ago, that is.
A few weeks ago, Sunny started pacing in the evenings… something she had never done before. When the constant, anxious pacing was then combined with frequent howling, whining, and barking at nothing, again starting in the evening, Debbie became concerned. When Sunny started to act like she didn’t recognize Debbie during her evening episodes, Debbie became extremely distressed herself.
Sunny’s odd behaviors began out of nowhere, and now this behavior had become a nightly occurrence. Why had this started to happen? By the time the morning came, Sunny was back to her wonderful, happy self.
Debbie took Sunny to her veterinarian about a week after the random behavior started, but Sunny was so normal during the day, the vet couldn’t find a thing wrong with her and sent them home.
At her wit's end, Debbie began to do a little online research. She came across a company that made CBD treats for dogs. The company claimed the treats would reduce anxiety in pets. At this point, Debbie was ready to try anything… Sunny’s nightly behavior had gotten so bad at this point that Debbie felt Sunny was suffering and was afraid she would have to put Sunny to sleep. Debbie ordered the treats and paid the extra money for the 1-day shipping.
When the CBD treats came the next day, Debbie was ready! As soon as Sunny started her pacing, panting, whining, and barking, Debbie gave her the recommended amount of the treat for Sunny’s weight so the correct dose of CBD for Sunny’s size would be administered. What happened next was nothing short of a miracle… at least for Debbie!
About 20 minutes after Sunny ate the CBD treats, she laid down in her bed! She stopped pacing, whining, howling, not letting Debbie come near her as if she didn’t know Debbie and being afraid of her… Sunny laid calmly in her bed next to Debbie’s chair, let Debbie pet her the way she used to for so many years, but later wouldn’t tolerate and began to snore softly in a peaceful slumber.
Debbie was ecstatic! This was the most serene and tranquil Debbie had seen Sunny in weeks! Much to Debbie’s delight, the next morning, Sunny didn’t seem groggy or dopey. She was again her wonderful, happy self. When Sunny started showing signs of her nighttime anxiety the next night, Sunny got her treats. This routine of CBD treats in the evening helped give Sunny back her quality of life. Debbie did not have to put her to sleep and get another 2 good years out of her! Not only did the CBD dog treats help Sunny with her anxiety, but Debbie felt it also helped Sunny with her joint stiffness and digestive issues.
