He seems to be doing better. I called the vet and he said I may be giving him too much fiber with all the vegetables. So I give him the vegetable mix with meat in the morning and in the evening I give him the grain free kibble with meat. He hasn’t had another accident. So fingers crossed. I also tried a new CBD that seems to give him more pep than the others I tried. Do you give Wyatt CBD?

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Def a good thought with the fiber. Gypsy use to have a similar problem, she loved her green beans but they didnt love her back.

We tried roane on CBD. getting her to take it was a challenge though so we never really got to find out if it worked. Im glad its giving brownie a bit more pep, ive heared good things about it from others.

Oh that makes sense about the fiber! I’m so glad he’s doing better.

We tried a couple of vet-approved CBD products on Wyatt but none seemed to have any dramatic effect that would justify the cost so we stopped using it. Which product are you using for Brownie? Glad he’s getting some relief with it.

Just getting caught up, wow!

Nancy, I was in the yard last week.. barefoot of course. I let my poo radar down for a moment and squish.. right between the toes. 🤮🤮🤮

The rat definitely wins in the “gross” department, lol 🐀🐀🐀

I have CBD capsules that I give Mitch, just wrap them in a pill pocket or a pill wrap that I found. I have even dropped the oil in a pill pocket and pinched it closed, no problem. What CBD are you using? 

I hope your pink eye goes away quickly, that is SO uncomfortable, arghhh…

I’ve done the backyard thing too. Glad I’m not the only One! Lol!

I have also put the CBD in a pill pocket. That’s works great! This morning I cut a hot dog up, put a hole in the end and just dropped in the drops but a pill pocket is much easier. If I try to put it in Brownie’s mouth he holds his teeth together and locks his jaws. Indent know why, it’s bacon flavor.

Jackie, how is Mitchell doing?

Brownie has not had a bowl issue since I cut his vegetables to mornings only, so I guess that was it. Thinking about it now, sometimes he would be sitting, then his eyes would get big and he would hop to the doggie door as fast as he could.  As he would be going through the door he would drop a couple turds.

I just love these classy and lady like conversations. LOL!  That is what is nice about this site. You can tell it like it is!

What company makes the CBD? Right now I am using Lazarus Naturals and I like them a lot.

Mitchell is holding his own for the moment. I purchased a different joint supplement that got amazing reviews so I thought it would be worth trying. I am praying it gives him some mobility and more comfort. He is having a hard time even standing on a rug anymore. His appetite has been poor, and he has been sleeping at least 20 hours a day. 

Today is day 3 of the new supplement. I am not expecting miracles but if it helps him to get around then I will know he is more comfortable. I did raise the CBD by 1.5mg too. I had run out of his capsules which are 10mg, so I split up a couple of my capsules, which are 25mg. 

Keeping fingers crossed.

I’ve never heard of Lazarus Naturals. Where did you get It? I’m using one by Hempworx. If you want I can email you the link. I would really like to know if the joint supplement works. Please let me know because if it works for Mitchell  I would like to try it for Brownie. He seems to be a little stiff sometimes. My heart tells me age is going to take him before the cancer. Next month he will be 12.5 years. 🙁

Even though I lost my hearing my mom still makes me work for my cookies.  She told me to speak with a hand sign.  I will do anything for a cookie!

Five cookies Ms. Sally?  I don’t think mom will ever agree with that. But since we had my 6 month milestone party I know what’s in the freezer.  So when mom opens the freezer door I hop on over and give her the sad eyes. Then she will give me a spoon full of ice cream. It works every time! 😀
