A sick dog days after possible death is the first to save his life with cannabis oil, the owner claims.
Beloved pooch Milo was only given a few days to live after being diagnosed with pancreatitis, causing him to have paralyzing pain.
Owner Vicky Horton, 31, from Torquay, Devon, was told to prepare for the worst because conventional treatment did not work.
But after a friend had suggested giving him a few drops of CBD oil, his forecast turned around – within just 48 hours, Miss Horton claims.
Vicky Horton, from Torquay, Devon, had almost given up hope of rescuing her Labrador jumper Cross Milo after being diagnosed with pancreatitis
Milo is still in the CBD oil and recently celebrated his 15th birthday and was able to enjoy his twilight years.
Vicky, who has had Milo since she was 16, said: & Milo became seriously ill with pancreatitis on Monday.
& # 39; It is a very serious condition in dogs, especially older dogs. He spent two nights at the vets with a drip and we were told to prepare for the worst.
Milo had lost 4 kg and his owners believed they were cruel by keeping him alive
& # 39; Milo did not treat the vets well and continued to pull out his drip. He was also very confused and restless because of the drugs he used, so they decided to fire him Thursday night because they thought he would be better off at home.
& # 39; When we collected Milo, I am sure he didn't even recognize us. He constantly weeded himself, his hind legs had been replaced, he was disoriented and he had not eaten since Sunday.
& # 39; The vet again said on discharge that we should prepare for the worst.
& # 39; We came home and slept in the living room with Milo, we gave him water through a syringe and tried to seduce him with food, but he was not interested.
& # 39; Trying to get the painkillers off of him was a fight and the Tramadol made him foam to the mouth because it tasted so terrible.
& # 39; We visited the vets on Friday to supplement Milo's injection pain killers and antibiotics, and again on Saturday to do the same.
& # 39; By Saturday we had provided Milo 48 hours non-stop and he had not improved.
He had lost 4 kg and we believed that we were cruel by keeping him alive.
& # 39; That evening we decided we couldn't suffer because he wasn't getting better, so we should think about that heart-wrenching decision. & # 39;
Then Vicky & # 39; s husband remembered that some friends used CBD oil to treat their dogs and it was recommended to go to the CBD lab.
After a friend Milo suggested a few drops of CBD oil, his prognosis turned around within 48 hours
Around 6 p.m. that evening they gave Milo eight drops of CBD oil.
Within three hours he had his first real pee in three days. Around eleven o'clock he slept and rested for the first time in four days.
The next morning at 6 o'clock he ate a plate of chicken, which was the first food he had eaten for six days.
Vicky said: & As the hours went by, he improved; he ate and drank more. We gave him five drops of oil every six hours and since then he has had no signs of pain.
& # 39; We finally stopped all prescribed painkillers because they made Milo so confused and sad. It only took 48 hours to reverse the entire situation.
The Veterinary Medicinal Products Directorate has issued a statement stating that veterinary products containing (CBD) are veterinary medicinal products and need to be regulated, which has stopped trading
& # 39; If you look at Milo running around the block today, mocking chicken plates and wagging his tail, it is really unreal to think that we have almost made a decision to end his life.
& # 39; It is completely unbelievable how a few drops of oil can make such a difference to an animal's life. & # 39;
Until September last year, CBD stores were able to provide pet owners with products to make their pets a little easier.
However, the Veterinary Medicinal Products Directorate subsequently issued a statement that veterinary products containing (CBD) are veterinary medicinal products and should be regulated, thus stopping the trade.
Jess Dale, co-owner of the CBD Lab, said: “How happy that the story has a happy ending, but why has the Veterinary Medicines Directorate decided to take this action with these results?
& # 39; There is no evidence that CBD oil is harmful, but it is now a criminal offense to & # 39; unauthorized product containing CBD without administering a veterinary prescription according to regulation 8 of the VMR.
& # 39; As they themselves claim, it has medical benefits, so why should this not be a general use? CBD for pets and CBD for human consumption contain exactly the same ingredients. & # 39;
