Winston did always get a tiny bit carsick when travelling, and the CBD oil has helped with his stomach. He does not get carsick or ill when riding in vehicles anymore. Better hip and joint health, which is key for purebreds.
As a purebred Bull Terrier, Winston is prone to hip and joint issues. Smaller, more stout dogs find themselves at this risk, and the CBD oil has given him better mobility and health, especially when he is running and playing with other dogs. Better mood around other male dogs, fix or unfixed. Any unfixed male dog can be a bit more standoffish towards other male dogs, especially if they are not fixed themselves. Winston spends his time around multiple male and female dogs at home, and the CBD oil has prevented him from having any issues with them, and even plays freely with everyone. While unfixed male dogs are notorious for seeking out and bothering unfixed female dogs, especially female dogs who are in heat. With the CBD oil, Winston does not stop to sniff or try to engage with female dogs nearly as much.
If he does get distracted, a single cue brings him right back, making it easy for him to focus. Less pain in areas that were sore, like his tenderfoot. Winston broke a nail and injured a toe when he was a puppy, and the foot still bothered him for a while. With the CBD oil, he does not limp or get upset when someone touches that foot, and he moves much more when he is playing. Winston lives with other dogs, and some of them are older and less active than he can be. Even though he is still young and wants to play rough sometimes, the CBD oil prevents him from getting too rough or nippy with other dogs. This is fantastic, especially for a Terrier who can get over excited easily. Besides just behavior issues, Winston’s skin and coat have improved as well, making him healthier overall. Less shedding, less scratching, and no hot spots at all for Winston. Winston used to be terrified if anything fell on the floor. With the CBD oil, he no longer flinches or flees from noises, which is great for when he has to pick up a cane for his pet parent. A vacuum is a scary machine for any dog, and Winston was no exception early on in his training. Thanks to the CBD and a bit of training, he no longer cares even a bit about the vacuum or the noises. Now that Winston has begun to take the CBD oils, his appetite has improved. He was a picky eater and sometimes did not get all the nutrition he needed. Now, he eats everything he is supposed to, and much less of the things he is not. Like some people, dogs can suffer from night issues as well. In Winston’s case, he would suffer from night terrors, and occasionally wake himself from barking and flailing in his sleep. While CBD cannot be purchased from large online retailers, it can be found in many local retailers or independent stores. For Winston, he gets his from Tristar Medical in Tennessee, but look for retailers near you for your own supply.
