When her dog was having a hard time dealing with grief, Christine realized she needed to do something. That's when she discovered Honest Paws CBD...
“I just can’t get over the difference in her.”
Christine is the dog mom of soon-to-be 12-year-old Beagle, Sally Mae.
Tragedy struck the family earlier this year when Sally Mae’s brother Harrison crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
Ever since he passed, Sally Mae wasn’t her bouncy self. The poor pup was showing all the signs of a broken heart, and Christine knew she had to do something to get Sally Mae to a happy place again.
What in Sally Mae’s behavior made you realize something was wrong?
Dogs grieve just like humans do when they suffer a loss. It was very clear that when Harrison passed away, Sally Mae was grieving the loss of her brother.
“Ever since he passed, she’s just been really sad and very attached to me. She doesn’t like me to go anywhere. Also, she wasn’t eating very well or sleeping, and she'd had some accidents in the house.”
What made you decide to try Honest Paws CBD products?
“I was visiting a friend in California, and she has a dog about Sally’s age, and she shakes a lot. She said, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve got this great stuff. It’s a great company, and you should give it to her.’"
Christine didn’t know all that much about CBD but trusted that if her friend deemed it safe for her dogs, she would give it a try for Sally Mae.
“I was very uneducated, but I knew that my friend who’s always had dogs would never give anything to her dog that would hurt her. I thought that if she uses it, I'd go ahead and try it. I’ll just see how it goes. So I came home, and I ordered it.”
How could you tell that the Honest Paws CBD products were working?
Christine started giving Sally Mae CBD oil twice a day.
There is always a moment when dog parents realize that the CBD oil is doing its job. For Sally Mae's family, the moment came when Christine was traveling, and her daughter saw firsthand that Sally Mae had truly found her chill.
“I was traveling, and I was gone for a couple of days. My daughter was really concerned that Sally Mae was going to be sad. I’d been giving the CBD oil to her for about four days, maybe a full week. My daughter called me on FaceTime and said, ‘Look, Mom, she’s just laying on the couch next to me, calm and relaxed!’ I said, ‘Wow, I’ve never seen her like that!’ That’s when I realized, this is working!”
Sally Mae’s demeanor had changed drastically. She was no longer the sad doggo she had been after she lost her brother. She perked up and was behaving as if a weight had been lifted off her shoulders.
“She’s just happy. She sleeps, and she’s eating again. She hasn’t had any accidents in the house. I didn’t think it was going to work, because I feel like I’ve tried everything. I couldn’t be happier. Honestly, it’s been great for her. I think that she’s happier and it's like she’s having a better life now.”
Sally Mae's emotional turmoil and heartbreak was not the only thing bothering her. She also experienced some joint stiffness and discomfort, given her age. Luckily, the Honest Paws Calm CBD oil did more than just help with Sally Mae’s demeanor.
“She used to lay in her bed and you could tell that she wasn’t comfortable. She was constantly moving around. I think probably her bones were hurting her, and she just couldn’t get comfortable."
Thanks to the CBD, however, Sally Mae is happier and better able to move around. "I just can't get over the difference in her," says Christine.
Sally Mae’s story is yet another happy "tail" that shows how CBD oil can improve the quality of life of dogs who are having a rough time, whether physically or emotionally.
May Sally Mae continue to live her best and most carefree life!
