CBDs, Cannabinoids, Endocannabinoids & Canines

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. As my huMom & I sniff about the inter-webs, we see a lot of people asking about CBD oil use for their good dogs. A lot of “experts” seem to know a lot about it. But it’s a very complex subject.

Research into the medicinal benefits of cannabis & hemp products are still in the early stages due to these plants being illegal for decades. But it seems clear that there are many compounds that can help in regards to pain management, calmness & even help with seizures.

There is a lot of information out there, some good, some not so much. For the next few Monday’s, I’ll be barking about what is known about the potential benefits of Cannabis & hemp oils. As well we will be sniffing out what is an endocannabinoid and how does it pawtain to us canines.

Full disclosure, Knotty Toys for Good Dogs has an affiliate program with Charlotte’s Web CBD products but at present, I do not  take any CBD products. With that said, I have in the past & we are open to using it again when we feel more knowledgeable.  Of course we would discuss this with our Vet first.   All of this will be shared with you later in a future post.

So stay tuned for the next few Monday’s & I’ll sniff out facts from fiction.

The Live Like Roo Foundation

News

Hello everyone, Canine Executive Officer Olivia here. Today I want to tell you about a charity called, ‘Live like Roo’. The Live Like Roo Foundation has assisted over 8200 pets & their families through cancer diagnoses.

The foundation is named after a good dog named Roosevelt who was rescued from a shelter but sadly already was suffering from bone cancer. His adopted family made every effort to make sure his life was the fullest & happiest it could be.

The Live Like Roo Foundation offers financial assistance to qualifying families.  They also have Cancer Care Packages that include some of Roo’s favorite items, including a blanket, gift cards, toys & treats.

The Live Like Roo Foundation also has four other fund raising programs.

The Booker Fund is for hospice dogs with a cancer diagnosis. This Fund pays for hotel rooms, wagons, dog beds & anything a dog needs in the final days or months.

The Cappy Fund is specifically for rescue dogs with a cancer diagnosis.

Maggie’s Mission funds cats with cancer 100%. It is named for a gorgeous cat that was taken way too soon because of a cancer diagnosis. Under this mission, they cover medical costs in full for most cases.

Serenity’s Wish is a grant based fund available to Live Like Roo applicants. Serenity’s Wish is intended to assist pet parents through end of life care & decision making for their pets. This assistance is limited to hospice consults, palliative care, humane euthanasia & cremation.

It touches my heart knowing organizations like this are there to help. Please consider making a donation to The Live Like Roo Foundation. You’ll be helping a family get through a very difficult time.
