"So I purchased CBD 3 weeks ago for my older dog Brie (Chesapeake Bay Retriever 12 1/2 yrs old) who has been going down hill at a moderate pace the past 3-4 months. She has been lame in both shoulders and getting weaker in the hindend. She was also not acting her happy self and not getting up to greet people as normal. She is and has been a healthy older dog.
I had tried several different NSAIDS without much change in her comfort. Gabapentin has helped some but not enough, plus to high of a dose made her to sleepy.
After the 1st week on CBD I noticed that she wasn't acting so depressed and that she was starting to interact a little more. I have 2 ways to gage how she is feeling. 1 is when she lays down if she is painful she groans or if really bad will let herself flop down. The 2nd is how far she can go on her walks.
In April we were going 2 1/2 - 3 miles at about a 17 minute mile. By the beginning of July we were only doing 1 -1 1/2 miles at 20 -22 minutes per mile. Last weekend (2 weeks of using CBD) we did a 3 mile walk at about 18 -19 minute mile and today (3 weeks on CBD) we did 2 1/2 miles at 17 minutes!
Her hindend weakness is dramatically better, she laying down without groaning and she is back to her happy self and getting up to greet people!
She still has front-end lameness which we have diagnosed as tendonitis in her shoulders. That will take some time to heal but her comfort level at this time is much improved. She still takes gabapentin a fairly low dose and a small dose of Metacam (a liquid NSAID that I can easily change the amt so she only gets what she needs that day).
I am very happy with the results I have seen in a short time of using CBD ! And Brie thanks you too !"
