My black lab Presley is a very active lab. She always has been and continues to be even in her Senior years. Because of her being so active, she unfortunately has arthritis in her hips which cause her to drag her back legs, lose her footing at times and to walk fairly stiff at times. I usually give her Previcox daily but wanted to explore other avenues as I don’t want her to have to live on a daily medication that could eventually affect her liver, kidneys or gastrointestinal tract. The goal is to have her as healthy and around as long as possible and not risk her life span just because of her bad hips. I had heard about CBD and the amazing health benefits they have for humans and recently had become aware of how CBD that contains no THC whatsoever, has a positive impact on dogs as well. I purchased Veteran Vitality Premium CBD Full Spectrum Mint Tincture. I don’t really measure the drop’s but I give her about a full dropper each morning with her food. It took about two weeks to really see the benefit, as it is a natural substance and doesn’t always take full effect immediately. I have noticed after taking her out for a full day of being active and swimming, she was not sore afterwards.
You wouldn’t even have known that she had run around for 5 or so hours, jumping in a pool, swimming and running laps around the parameter. When I take her for walks and when she chases the ball or plays with her younger brother, her legs have not slipped out from underneath her and I do not see her dragging her back feet. I am confident she is not
suffering any discomfort or pain and it is due to the Veterans Vitality CBD. I feel much better knowing she is feeling good and can still be as active as her little heart desires and that her medication posts no threat to her long-term health. I highly recommend anyone who has a dog with joint or hip problems to try Veterans Vitality for at least 1-3 weeks before they decide to give a prescription medication daily. I do of course still have some pain meds set aside for her just in case she does something extreme to hurt herself, that of course, a little bit stronger medication may be necessary, but I have not had to resort to that just yet. We have been using the CBD Tincture for about three months now. Not only is the CBD natural, it is MUCH more affordable and we are very happy.
