CBD for Equine Cushings
I had spent a lot of time and energy trying to figure out how to get my aging horse, Joe, who is a 25 year old Appaloosa gelding, to put on weight. His hair coat was dull and thick and his usual personality was muted as well. We learned from our vet that he had Cushings. Some horses react to Cushings by struggling to keep on weight and have poor muscle tone. That is what Joe was struggling with in addition to the usual Cushings symptoms. I was apprehensive to put him on pharmaceutical medicine. After hearing and seeing very positive reviews of a variety of equine conditions being improved with the use of CBD oil, I decided this seemed like a good choice for my special guy. The first time I gave him a dose of CBD oil he instantly started relaxing. He immediately was yawning and licking his lips and kept it up for at least five minutes. The chronic stress that his body had been unsuccessfully dealing with was being relieved! Jo has now been getting 25 mg of Hope Botanicals 750 mg CBD oil twice a day for a month and a half. He has completely blown his old hair coat and has a nice healthy one showing through and he has put on quite a bit of weight and looks like his old self, and thankfully his personality is back. He has been enjoying being ridden and is doing the important job of teaching a teenage girl all the fun of competing at the Western States Stock Horse shows. I am so thankful to have this option and even more thankful that it has worked so well! We have already spent 21 awesome years together and I am so glad to look forward to more!
