My miniature poodle turned fourteen years aged this past summer.
I’ve had the dog since he was just a puppy, but over the years, he has slowed down a bit, however he now has trouble hearing & doesn’t see too well.
He suffers from arthritis of the joints. I noticed that he struggled to jump up on the couch & play fetch & tug-of-war. A trip to the vet provided a prescription for medication with worrisome side-effects. I was unwilling to subject our poodle to modern & possibly worse problems. A friend of mine advised that I look into cannabis pet products. I wasn’t aware there was such a thing. It is dangerous to feed a dog or dog cannabis products designed for people, because THC is toxic to pets. I checked at the local recreational dispensary & l received that they carry a fairly giant selection of pet-focused options, there are CBD edibles, tinctures & topicals that help to treat inflammation, stiffness & chronic pain, but since purchasing pet products, I’ve seen a significant improvement in our dog’s quality of life. The CBD is working wonders, then my poodle has more energy. He’s running, jumping & playing again. I have no problem getting him to eat the cannabis-infused chews. He seems to love the flavors. I can also mix a few drops of tinctures into his food, however for topicals, I like a cannabis-infused dog shampoo. Although our dog is never cheerful about getting a bath, it rejuvenates him. Afterward, he runs around in excitement. It is charming to supply pain relief for our poodle by way of plant-based medicine.
