Morning January 25 2015 starting out our journey with our beloved Bing, our  7 year old yellow lab.  We own a natural pet food store in northeast Ohio and Bing is a celebrity at our store. He has an annual Birthday bash in August  with as many as 300 guest attending. We expect a great celebration of his journey this year too. He started limping in February and through numerous vet visits, X-rays, and biopsies our worst fears were confirmed. He joined Tripaws last Thursday and is healing well.  I was familiar with k9 Immunity, I just reordered again this week for more diligent administration. I researched Canni-pet since we are distributing the Dog Naturally Magazine at our store. I ordered my first large dog wafer pack yesterday.  I am a firm believer that Cannibus has positive results, as well as medicinal mushrooms. I was happy to see that the harmful THC was removed from the dog and cat version so that it would not have adverse effects. I will be documenting Bing’s Journey of Courage on our Facebook page daily, as well as on Tripawds site ( which I find a blessing during the difficult time,thank you Jerry) I am looking forward to hopefull success. Stay tuned for our testimony

Hi Bing and family, welcome. I’m sorry to hear about your cancer journey, but wow he’s getting some awesome care with your guidance and will kick cancer’s butt!

We’re glad you joined us and look forward to getting to know more about you both, you sure have a lot of knowledge to share with the community. Keep us posted and let us know how we can help OK? And thanks for the very kind words about Tripawds!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Hi – my neighbors were using Cannabinoids for their dog who was 14 with a sizeable mass in her abdomen which really wasn’t operable. It really helped her with nausea and appetite. Probably gave her a few more months.  It did not seem to have the effect of shrinking the tumor, but did make her far more comfortable.

Lisa, Minneapolis

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His canine sister also succumbed to cancer on March 1, 2019 - we lavished her with our love in the interim, but life was never quite the same without her only real canine friend. Cliff kitty had to leave us, too, suddenly, in August 2019. Lucia kitty grieved all these losses, but helped us welcome two new Lurchers into our home and our lives, Shae and Barley.

There is a lot on the web about Tumeric helping to shrink or slow tumors.  Golden Paste made with Tumeric.

I am giving Chance .75 ml of CBD twice daily and .8ml of THC/CBD oil twice daily. 

The CBD I got directly from our holistic vet. The THC/CBD I got from a dispensary but it was the one the vet told us to get. I think it has helped! But he is on a bunch of other supplements and a new diet also. So the combo of everything is probably a big factor.

Thank you for the info. I didn’t get a chance to try it on Mazy.  She passed 2 days before it was delivered. But I did send it to a friend whose pup is fighting cancer

I’m so very sorry to hear about Mazy!!! crying But that’s nice you were able to help out another pup in need. Any feedback so far from them on whether it has helped?

No. I helped her come up with a plan where she lives in NY. She is seeing a holistic vet now. I had bought hemp oil and sent it to her. Mazys case was very very aggressive. My holistic vet was even perplexed. New tumors(mast cell) were popping up every couple days. The Chinese herbs and lo carb diet helped shrink all but ONE. That’s the one that did her in 🙁

I am so sorry for your loss of Mazy.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.
