Anubis_Star I will find sources when I get to work. The problem with thc and dogs now is it's so much more concentrated. In the good ol hippy days thc content in pot was rarely over 10%. Now you have strains with 30% thc (there's a huge difference between what an actual plant contains vs. What a concentrated oil contains). "The good ****". Then you have food products made with hash and now you're seeing very high levels of thc and now there have been reported, confirmed cases of dogs dying from toxocity. Dogs NEVER use to die from marijuana toxicity. Now they do. It's just much stronger, we're getting much more potent oils

Daisy&Lucky's Mom I am so sorry to hear your news . We lost our Daisy to a tumour on her heart. Living in the now is the only way to deal with it.Spoil her and hug her and give her what she wants. The only good thing about this is they arent in pain. Take care.

I am very sorry to hear this news. Yes, live in the now and spoil her rotten.

If you can, I suggest you try not to be too upset around your GSD. They are so sensitive to our emotions. I realize this is much easier said than done.

It took every ounce of courage I had in me but while the vet was putting my girl to sleep I forced myself not to cry, kept my voice upbeat, held her in my arms and told her what a good doggie girl she is. After she passed I completely lost it. I also kept things upbeat while she declined and focused on what she could do rather than dwelling on things she could not do any longer. Each day was a gift and I cherished every one of them.

All the best to you and your family,

Michael

Respectfully - I would like a link to that

THC with the help of hydroponics and chemical enhancements have boosted levels in the 30% range over the good ol' hippee days when plants were grown outdoors and water was used...

This is the direction I would consider if I am faced with this with my guy. He is 9.5yrs which seems to be the overall mean age. so I have been searching this a lot!...online that is.

Nigel Spoil her rotten and enjoy each day you have. Sorry you are going through this, lost two to this disease myself.

middleofnowhere Sorry for the diagnosis. It's a rough disease. But the dog is not in pain from it. Enjoy her for as long as you can. Do watch for another bleed, 'though. They can crash very fast, especially with the second one. (voice of sorry experience here.)

jocoyn I am sorry......I know some who have extended quantity and quality of life for some term. But it is a tough decision. It is very hard to watch them have repeated bleeds, be weak, then get strong only to repeat the cycle.

The good news is dogs ALWAYS live in the now. She is happy so take your lead from her as she has no fear of death.
