Arthritis Issues

A question for you all out there. i have taken Kashi to the holistic vet and she suggests dry needling she also suggests acupuncture and laser combo for best results. i was talking to my mechanic today and he suggested giving him CBD hemp oil with no thc for chronic pain. Has anyone tried this with their dogs for chronic pain or cancer? Does it replace the prescribed drugs? Can you stop the prescribed drugs metacam and gabapentin cold turkey and start using this? Has anyone tried the product from PurCBDPhytoo Canibinoid oil for pets?

Check with your vet. You shouldn't stop gabapentin cold turkey, I don't know about metacam.

I have heard of others (animal and human,) using CBD oil but don't haven't heard reports of how effective it was.

And if you aren't comfortable with what this vet is telling you, it is always your right to get a second opinion.
