“Our 9-year old Rottweiler, Charger, was diagnosed with synovial cell cancer in the spring of 2015. After extensive testing, the vet was certain it was isolated to his rear ankle and we could amputate with little risk of of recurrence, which we did. The biggest problem during his recovery was managing his pain meds.
The vet wanted them delivered on a particular schedule and dosage. But this made him comatose for a few hours followed by long periods of pain. And it came at a high cost to his gut health (nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite). Finally, after a long recovery, he started his way back to normal-if having three legs could be considered normal!.
Sadly his pain returned a few months later and we learned a malignant tumor had formed right at the incision site of his amputation. The vet said his cancer was much more aggressive than he thought and suggested palliative radiation (5 rounds) to knock back the tumor size and hopefully give him relief for a few months, so we started these treatments. The radiation visibly shrunk the tumor, but seriously damaged his bowels. Our next battle, was again, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and nausea. It was at this time that we learned about VETCBD and purchased our first bottle.
With VETCBD we were able to wean him off [the pain meds]. We also noticed he was much calmer and slept better at night. Also his appetite returned to almost normal. He has been on VETCBD for three months now.
Last week my husband thought the pain was breaking through so he gave him some [pain medication]. This started a flood of trouble: vomiting, diarrhea, and lethargy. So no more [pain medication]! We have slightly increased the dose of VETCBD and again he is doing fine. We figured out that it is best to give him his dose of VETCBD an hour or so before a meal so that it can go to work and relieve his pain, and bonus – increase his appetite!
Sadly, we can see that the tumor is going to win this fight, but our job is to give our special boy comfort while he is in the battle and to keep his appetite up. Many thanks to VETCBD for helping us do that!”
