Senior Labs Pebbles and Gracie Get the Lolahemp Boost

Today we are hearing from Dawn C of Hopkins, Minnesota. Lolahemp has helped her 13 year old labs, Pebbles and Gracie, live happier and more comfortably in their senior years. Here is what she had to share:

Not too long ago I looked at Pebbles and thought we didn't have much time left. The not good days were outnumbering the really not good days, and on this particular day, she looked me in the eye and I saw a tired dog about to give up.

Pebbles had a rough start and has been paying a huge physical price ever since. The past year and half her mobility, stability and coordination have significantly decreased as her pain increased. She had the heart to do things but her body let her down. She stopped doing stairs and going on walks. She slept a lot and would lie down in one spot and not move. Her only bright spot (except anything food related), were our trips to the dog park. The mornings there were quiet, with a small group of regulars. Every day they helped me cheer Pebbles on, making sure she got around at least one lap. Eventually, that became harder for her, but we never missed. Until that bad day.

At that point, Pebbles was a dog who was simply done participating in her life. I was devastated beyond belief, but I was not going to let her go without one last fight.

We have never refused Pebbles a treatment if we thought it might help even the slightest bit. That being said, I have never believed in miracle cures, life changing supplements or trends. We certainly tried them but never saw results, so when CBD became the newest trend, I paid no mind. I wish I had.

Three short weeks ago, six weeks from her low point, we started Pebbles (and Gracie) on Lolahemp. I cannot believe the difference. Pebbles now goes on a second walk almost every day, goes up and down stairs, sometimes runs a bit (short distances and a bit awkward, but hey, I'll take it) and is overall able to do the activities she has wanted to do for so long. There has been a significant decrease in pain and significant increases in stability, mobility, strength, balance and coordination. She used to easily fall over on uneven surfaces or when lightly bumped, but no more (a bit wobbly sometimes, but she won't give in to it). Every time someone remarks on how well she is doing I say a prayer of thanks to Lolahemp.

I am not saying a miracle took place and she is "cured". She still has the same issues but is doing dramatically better. Also, there have been no side effects. Gracie is doing amazing too. By the way she runs around, you would never believe she is 13.

Thank you to Lola and everyone at Lolahemp for creating a safe, quality product that helps our babies live better lives while also giving back to all those in need. Your efforts are appreciated.
