Vet recommended a person nearby who mixes CBD with coconut oil. Seems to be helping after a week or so. Eats better, a bit more active and more interested in what's going on. Maya gets 1/2 tsp in a.m. and same in p.m. via a syringe squirted into mouth.
Not sure about the Mod's views on CBD from hemp oil. Some posts on here went thru as my search revealed. Mod....might not be in favor of this subject. Went to local MiniPet Mart and owner said this product in the form of a treat will be on the shelves soon. I do see EdiBites for sale over the net and something from Monument Pharmacy in CO. Have not yet contacted these companies.
We're fine with the discussion of different techniques
If you were recommending a specific treatment for an ailment, that's not permitted. No one can offer medical advice but saying 'XYZ treatment has worked wonders on my dog' is okay!
