I was always one of those people who really wasn’t sure what to think about CBD related products. I’ve always been a very anti drug person so I never really wanted to give CBD products a chance but I decided that I was ready to try them out and I’ll tell you why. Treatibles was there to assist me in getting the very best thing for our dog!
In 2006 we brought home this super cute puppy, Caliber. He was 6 weeks old at the time and we were just so excited to get a dog! We are the type of family who includes our furries in all we do, they are part of the family and they remain with us until the day they pass. We knew we were in it for the long haul with Caliber which was fine with us! One of the hardest things ever is losing a pet and I dread the day it happens.
October of this year Caliber turned 11 years old. In November we noticed that he appeared to have a swollen snout but didn’t really think anything of it, he has had issues with allergies pretty much all his life and we figured it was another allergy issue. Within a week we noticed that his snout was not just swollen but now had a noticeable lump on the left side. Another week went by and the lump was now the size of a small tangerine. In two weeks we went from having a completely normal old man dog to having a dog with a huge lump who was starting to bleed from the mouth, had nasal discharge and we could tell he was going down hill very quickly.
On November 10th, 2017 we took Caliber to the vet. The second the vet lifted his lip we could tell it wasn’t good. She told us that Caliber had a large tumor on his gums and it was likely cancer. Due to his age and the rapid growth it didn’t look too good for him. We decided we weren’t going to go down any surgery routes due to his age and took him home with a prescription of steroids and antibiotics. That night we began the steroids and quickly realized they were doing harm to his body. He would get really anxious at night and it seemed like he was having issues with breathing normally. He couldn’t sleep, he couldn’t hold his bladder and his tumor was continuously growing. He was having panting attacks that would last for hours and would keep him up pacing the hallway. We had no idea what to do but we knew that Caliber couldn’t live out his last days like this.
By some kind of miracle on November 22nd I found out about Treatibles. I was so excited for some kind of option for Caliber, something to at least help keep him comfortable while he lived out his last days with us. We had hoped he could somehow make it through Christmas but our hope was fading quickly. We decided to try the Phytocannabinoid-Rich Oil Gel Caps along with a bag of the Large Turkey 4mg Grain Free Chews. We had really no expectations for these but figured we really had nothing to lose at this point.
Once we received the gel caps we decided to completely stop the steroids. After just 24 hours on the gel caps we noticed that Calibers entire personality had changed back to his normal self and he was very tired after days upon days of panting, anxiety and pain. He was sleeping, his constant panting stopped completely, he was calm, he was eating and his funny personality was coming back. It seemed to us like his pain had also lessened which was a huge positive in this. We decided it was doing good for him and we were going to keep going. Fast forward two more weeks and some seriously crazy stuff is happening, stuff that I am not even sure his vet could explain to us.
After two weeks on the gel caps and Treatible treats, Calibers tumor has completely stopped growing. Not only did his tumor stop growing but it has reduced in size by 50%! Caliber is back to his old self and he is to the point where he looks remotely normal again. He can eat his hard food, hes not bleeding from the mouth anymore, his nasal discharge is gone and his tumor has SHRUNK. Like I said, I had no expectations for this to do anything because I wasn’t really familiar with it but it has done A LOT more than I ever imagined possible. Caliber is definitely going to make it through Christmas and could possibly go on to live out the rest of his old man years! We are very grateful for these options being presented to us and I am sure Caliber is grateful for his life back. We owe it to you Treatibles!
Update: I wanted to add that Caliber’s tumor has continued to shrink. He is now down to about 20% of what he started with which is a HUGE difference! Here is a comparison picture –
As you can imagine it is even smaller now than it was in the picture on the right! We are very, very happy with how Treatibles products have helped our dog tremendously!
