Did you know that the endocannabinoid system is not just in humans? And that all mammals have it and can benefit from adding some cannabinoids to their diet.
Pets all over the world have been successfully using CBD for arthritis, epilepsy, PTSD and other conditions. Information about it’s benefits is spreading among pet owners and veterinarians alike and the interest in using CBD for our pets is growing fast.
There is now a booming industry creating CBD products for your pets.
Unfortunately some of these products might not be what they seem and some have very little CBD in them, if any. Several CBD products for pets that were tested that had literally no CBD in them. Products should be tested not only for their CBD level, but also to ensure they're free of toxic contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides. If you're gonna use CBD,
you need a good organic product, or else it's might just be money and time wasted.
The story of Shiba.
As I adopt senior dogs with health issues, I got to see first hand the amazing benefits of a good quality CBD product. Here is the story of my first rescue.
One day I went to a kennel to look for a dog, Shiba was the only one that did not get up to greet me. I walked over to her, she was just laying on the ground amongst the other dogs. I tried to pet her. She was obviously in pain. Her eyes were just a milky cloudy color, she was sad… She had been at the kennel for over a year, nobody wanted this sick old dog. Yet she was the only dog I could think of when I got home that day. Could I help her?
I called the adoption lady and said, I want the sick pitbull, she needs my help.
Soon she was delivered to me and our journey began. I was told she probably would not live longer than 2 more years, due to her poor state of health. I could not stroke her as a normal dog, due to severe body pain from the arthritis. But she wanted to be close to me.
First thing I did was to remove normal dog food from her diet ( no chicken ever again ) and add some CBD Shifa oil to her daily regime. I had a few drops on a treat and gave it to her regularly.
Due to her body pain and being almost completely blind, we only walked short walks and in open spaces, so she would not bump into things. I could see the shame on her when she did, felt so sad for her and kept promising I would never give her away. And within just a few weeks, she got a lot more confident walking outside. Even though her eyes were permanently damaged, she started being able to avoid walking into benches and light poles, moving more securely around when we were outside.
The milky layer covering her eyes became less and less. Moving up and down the stairs became easier as she could both see the steps better and not having to deal with so much arthritis pain. Her whole demeanor changed, from sad and defeated, to happy and hopeful.
As we continued our treatment, she just thrived. I could just shout “Shiba, do you want your medicine?” and she would come running. She knew she was doing better, she could feel it.
This dog, that was considered useless for somebody, became my everything. And due to her new lifestyle of health and CBD, she lived for 5 more amazing years. Not just 2 short years as I was warned could happen when adopting her. Traveling with us to cannabis fairs, being our office dog and my best fur friend. A big gentle giant with a loving caring heart, loved by everybody that got to know her.
When her time finally came and she was getting weaker, I took her to the vet to make sure it was not something else healthwise bothering her. The x-rays showed no sign of arthritis at all any more, it was gone, reversed. She was just old and her time had come. She was almost 15 at this time and that is a good age even for dogs that have had only a healthy and happy life. She took her last breath peacefully on my lap at home and I will always remember everything I learned from her.
I hope people will give their dogs a chance to thrive or at least aid their issues with CBD.
It’s so little, but can do so much. Make that walk a bit easier for your long time companion.
Our furry family deserves only the best.. So many dogs, especially senior dogs can get a much better quality of life with a good CBD oil like CBD Shifa Oils.
