In March 2015, my boy Spider was diagnosed with kidney disease. Being in its early stages, there was still a lot of hope, but of course, the condition is not reversible and will eventually get worse. However, there are quite a few things we can do to slow down the progression.
The first thing I did, was put all 3 kitties back on a raw BARF diet. Some sources say that the high protein count in raw meat is not good for cats with kidney disease, but I mix the meat with raw pumpkin and I also give Spider a supplement call Renafood once a day. This apparently worked very well because by the end of last year, his kidney values had stayed the same and not got worse. But age creeps up on all of us, and a year after his initial diagnosis, his kidney values did show some deterioration – but he’s still ok!
Then in June of this year, Spider had to have a malignant tumour (an adenocarcinoma) removed from his right ear, but this at least is a tumour that has only a low chance of metastases….
On my many Google searches for “miracle cures”, I came across Canna-Pet, which are capsules for pets filled with natural cannabinoids made from hemp, and decided to order a 2 month supply of their Canna-Pet Advanced for Small Pets.
Being a medical cannabis user myself because the 24/7 pain I suffer from fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis cannot be easily killed by even the strongest painkillers, I thought “wow, this might just help Spider as well!”.
Canna-Pet’s products are made exclusively from hemp, a non-psychoactive plant which represents a natural cannabinoid source for pet supplements. A study of pet owners using Canna-Pet for their cats and dogs showed that there was a lot of improvement in their pets, treating conditions such as allergies, digestive tract problems, seizures, muscle spasms and inflammatory illnesses. In many cases it also slowed down the re-growth of cancer cells and reduced vomiting and nausea.
A week into taking the pills, Spider suddenly started acting like a new cat! He stopped his constant howling in the middle of the night (every night), something which regular veterinary meds could not help with, and he now eats better than ever, is so much more cuddly and even more playful than before. The above mentioned tumour has also shown no signs of growing back yet.
I am so pleased and amazed that Canna-Pet is helping Spider so much – his quality of life is now back to what it was before he became ill. I am not deluding myself that Canna-Pet is a cure for all of petkind’s ailments, but I do believe that it helps give my beloved kitties the chance of a better quality life in their old age – hopefully right until the day they pass over the Rainbow Bridge…
