Another Jessee update. So I wanted to get Jessee on a good CBD product as well as appropriate glucosamine for her post surgery care. I contacted a friend that also has a great dane who had cancer. Stacy Ladnier works for Anahiem Hills Pet Clinic. She is a Certified Veterinary Cannabis Counselor as well as a Registered Vet Tech. She has been doing cannabis counselling for the past two years. Since I’m in WA and she is in CA we worked via telephone during our first consulation as Zoom was down. I completed a rather thorough package for Stacy describing Jessees medical condition and medications she is on. After she reviewed this we discussed what our goals were for Jessee. Stacy recommended ElleVet CBD+CBDA chews for large dogs.
I immediately placed my order. Once I had the product in hand my diva decided she didn’t want to chew the chews! So I chopped them up and put them in her nutritional diet which she scarfed down. On day 5 she started eating them like treats. We are now on day 6 of 8 chews per day. After the first week she will reduce to 4 per day. As Jessee is 8.5 years of age she has a bit of arthritis in her rear legs and we want to protect those legs as much as possible as well as keeping her calm and some pain relief for minor stuff. It’s my job to keep a log of how she is doing. So far, aside from the initial (not liking the flavor?) she’s doing great. My oncologist here in WA, Dr Rizzo, also mentioned that some clients had told her their pets did not care for the chews. But after discussing with Stacy the quality of this product and the fact that I can mix it in her food, I’m sticking with it. The CBD market is so overwhelming with oils, and addictives and it’s rather confusing to me. I appreciated Stacy explaining what ingredients are in this product so I could make an informed decision. There are other products Stacy works with available. I’m pretty content that I have a solid source to go to for information on the CBD products. So again, just wanted to throw this out there for anyone who might be interested.
