I just listened to the podcast from December 2019 about pets and CBD.....so interesting and informative. Coincidently I went to a seminar given by my holistic vet about this very topic (and the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine).
The talks were almost identical - from why most vets shy away from this subject, to the science behind how it works, to how to find a good product. In the talk, Dr. Patty told the group how a client of hers came to her about wanting to try CBD for her 3-legged dog (she looked right at me an smiled)…..at the time, she also had no experience with this, and not wanting to get arrested (her words) she reached out to a friend at UC Davis for advice.
Then I read your article that talked about Askel's mom. I was impressed with her research ( I'm sort of lazy when it comes to this) and ordered the product she is involved with - CBD Bio Pet Care. I've been giving it to Kodi and it really seems to have put a spring in his step. I use a bigger dose and more frequent than she does, but I like the results. He is also on gaba and carprofen, but as he's a senior he gets wellness labs every 6 months anyway, so we can keep an eye on some the liver values. They've been normal so far - his issue is with kidney values creeping up. He will be 16 next month, so I'm not too freaked about that.
Long winded way to say I really enjoyed your podcast!
