“ In April 2016, at the age of 2.5 years old, my up and coming young show dog, Vespa, was diagnosed with Lymphoma. After extensive surgery, which removed large portions of her liver and small intestine, she was sent home with lots of medications and the recommendation to get her into chemotherapy because several small “nodules” had been left in her liver. The follow up lab results confirmed that they were also lymphoma. We were devastated.
At home after the surgery, she had a lot of pain and discomfort. She wouldn’t’ move. She wouldn’t eat. She trembled constantly. She was consumed with pain. The pain medications made her vomit violently, even when taken with food as directed. It was heartbreaking. Remembering that CBD products mediated nausea in cancer patients AND had anti-cancer properties, I sent my husband to the local recreational marijuana store for CBD oil. He returned with some CBD capsules which we promptly gave to our girl. Within 40 minutes she relaxed and stopped trembling. Her pupils returned to a normal state, and she was ‘aware’ and responsive. When asked if she wanted to go outside, she slowly eased herself off the sofa and walked outside with me. What was even better, was that the vomiting stopped and her appetite returned. What she ate stayed in her. No more vomiting. I chose to discontinue the harsh pain medications and searched for a better CBD product than what the local ‘recreational’ stores carried. I found your “Pearl ZEN” CBD oil and continued using it. And Vespa continued to improve.
At this point, it was time to seriously consider chemotherapy. But, with no pet insurance and not wanting to spend thousands of dollars more on chemotherapy that would, at best, extend her life by 18 months, we decided to let her future be what it would be, and we did not do the recommended chemotherapy. At this time I also changed her diet significantly. I began to try many anti-cancer herbs and supplements. I added powdered whole hemp plant to her food, and I continued to give her multiple daily doses of the “Pearl ZEN” CBD oil.
Today, November 2018, Vespa is now 5.5 years old and thriving. She is long past her ‘expiration date’. She is a Champion of Record in three separate registries and is Nationally ranked within her Breeds’ Standings. She has multiple Best in Shows, multiple Reserve Best in Shows, and multiple wins at Specialty shows. The bulk of her show wins were AFTER her diagnosis and surgery. She is happy and sparkling and is well known in the dog show world. She has grown more coat than I know what to do with and needs to lose a few pounds. I continue to feed her the anti-cancer diet that we worked out for her, with limited anti-cancer supplements and herbs, and I continue to give her the daily doses of your “Pearl ZEN” CBD oil.
Vespa is our Miracle Dog. But, without skilled veterinary care and support, a change of diet, and the continued use of the “Pearl ZEN” CBD oil, I am certain I would not have this delightful dog by my side and thriving today. She is my “once in a lifetime” dog. “
