When Maya noticed her senior dog was limping from joint pain, she knew she had to do something. That's when she found CBD...
“This product has made a huge difference in her happiness and her movement so I’m going to continue with it.”
Gracie, who just turned 11, has always been a very active dog. However, over the last couple of years her mom Maya noticed that she was showing signs of slowing down. It was clear that Gracie was having mobility issues and that the poor pup was feeling very uncomfortable. Maya had been looking for something to help Gracie for a long time, but after trying different things, she landed on Honest Paws and was sold.
What in Gracie’s behavior made you realize something was wrong?
“I noticed over the last couple of years that she had been obviously uncomfortable after running or if we went for a long hike.”
Maya was quick to notice the change in Gracie’s behavior when the once active pup was uncomfortable and limping after running around or going on hikes.
“It would kind of flip between her left side and her right side and her back legs. So one day it might be her right side, and then more recently I had seen it more on the left side, where she would kind of limp and hold her leg off the ground. I also noticed that she does sit sideways quite often now.”
What made you decide to try Honest Paws products?
“I’ve tried several different products to help her. I do know that she has an issue in her back that may be causing the problems, but we hadn’t really been able to find something to make her more comfortable.”
There are a lot of CBD options on the market, so finding the right one can be intimidating. Maya had tried various products but found that Honest Paws CBD oil was one that really worked.
“I think I saw it in an ad. I did look into the product and I looked at other products as well. I tried a few other products, but with this one I see a bigger difference with her.”
After trying one Honest Paws product Maya went with a different company but quickly decided to switch back.
“I started with the Wellness oil. It was probably a couple of years ago, and then for whatever reason I went to another product and I didn’t see the results there so I came back. You guys had done some updating of your bottles and your labels and stuff and I thought ‘oh no, which one should I have?’ but this time I tried the Mobility and it’s great."
Gracie is a big fan of her CBD oil.
“She loves it. She comes running. She waits and after supper she goes right over, she knows where it is on the counter, and she’ll just sit there and wait for it. It’s pretty funny.”
How could you tell that the Honest Paws CBD products were working?
“It was probably several weeks into starting it. I know sometimes it takes time to see how they react to it. I just noticed that she was running with one of her friends and playing. She’s not a slow dog. She moves pretty well and she loves to play. I was just surprised because I had expected her to be a little bit lame afterwards but I didn’t see any of it. I was very pleased. Very surprised, but pleased. She has no problem jumping up on the bed, and on the couch or wherever. She’s doing good.”
Maya added that Gracie was doing better on all fronts.
“She’s more comfortable, more mobile, and she’s got a lot more energy.
When asked whether she would recommend Honest Paws products to other pet parents, here’s what she had to say:
“I would say give it a try, but give it time too. Every dog is different, every product is different. It’s just a matter of whether or not it’s going to help your pet. Your pet may not react like mine does, but it’s worked for me and I’m glad I gave it a try. I kept trying different things and I finally found the combination of things that work for her. It’s definitely worth a try if you want what’s best for your pet.”
Gracie may not be the youngest of pups any longer, but she definitely has a lot of living left to do. She once again has the energy and mobility to run and play like a puppy, without having to deal with the post-play discomfort. It’s so great that there’s yet another doggo out there who’s quality of life has changed for the better.
