Black Dog Sunday - A Turnaround

Our Black Dog had a jaw-dropping turnaround this week after struggling with pain. We had a phone conference with his vet mid-week. Due to a lack of other good options, we asked about CBD oil and whether it might help R's pain and possibly his reticence to try things since becoming blind.

Our vet said that it was worth a try. She suggested a couple of CBD companies, and I immediately ordered some CBD oil from them. But, it seemed like it was going to be slow in getting here.

Then, I remembered that I'd purchased some veterinary CBD oil a while ago but decided not to use it. I dug it out, and it hadn't expired yet. So, I gave some to R that very day.
The change in him was miraculous. Suddenly, R was ZOOMING on walks, including our evening trail hikes. I was having to hustle to keep up with him! Then, he enthusiastically RAN for 20 minutes the day after starting CBD.

This naturally skeptical person is convinced that CBD has some amazing effects. I didn't want to be too negative in last week's Black Dog Sunday (pre-CBD) but R seemed almost depressed. I think that severe pain on top of being newly blind was really weighing down his spirit.
His spirit is back to its usual buoyant state. He's a happy dog, and we humans are overjoyed.

It is indeed a HAPPY Black Dog Sunday.

  9. This is tail wagging good news. P.S. If you ever need locally produced, organic CBD (from Franktown), let me know. I carry it for resale and it's made a world of difference for Elsa and can get it to you quickly.

  11. We are so happy for you and R that you decided to try the CBD! I use a combo CBD/joint supplement for Luke and it seems to do well for him. Knock wood - I have not seen his knee pop out in quite a while.
