(7 Dec 2017) KREG ADAMS REMEMBERS THE HORRIFYING NIGHT HIS DOG BUSTER FELL ILL.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Kreg Adams, study participant, CSU study:
“Buster on the first seizure did not start screaming but you know the mouth shakes and they shake violently.”
DESPERATE TO FIND A CURE, ADAMS TURNED TO SOMETHING A GROWING NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TRYING — CANNABIS — TO RELIEVE THEIR ANIMALS’ AILMENTS.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Kreg Adams,
“Within about 45 minutes of giving it to Buster I could see a difference it was just a whole different dog.”
BUSTER IS PART OF A COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY STUDY LOOKING AT THE BENEFITS OF CANNABIDIOIL. C-B-D OIL CONTAINS VERY LITTLE TO NO HIGH-INDUCING T-H-C FOUND IN MARIJUANA BUT IT’S STILL CONSIDERED AN ILLEGAL DRUG WHICH HAS LIMITED THE RESEARCH.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Stephanie McGrath, veterinary professor, Colorado State University:
“I think a lot of people are either up against legal issues at their institution or nervous.”
COLORADO STATE RESEARCHERS ARE LOOKING AT THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CBD IN TREATING EPILEPSY AND ARTHRITIS IN DOGS.
ABOUT FOUR DOZEN DOGS LIKE BUSTER ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE PILOT STUDY FUNDED BY PET MEDICATION MAKER APPLIED BASIC SCIENCE CORPORATION.
HALF OF THEM ARE RECEIVING A PLACEBO, THE OTHER HALF CBD.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Felix Duerr, veterinary professor, Colorado State University:
“There is a placebo effect and that same placebo effect is actually present in dogs as well. The dogs obviously don’t know that but the owners. So when we ask owners, we have what we call a caregiver placebo effect.”
FOR DOGS WITH EPILESPY, RESEARCHERS SCAN THE BRAINS TO MAKE SURE THERE’S NO UNDERLYING DEFORMITIES THAT COULD BE CAUSING SEIZURES.
TO CHECK FOR ARTHRITIS, THEY MEASURE HOW MUCH WEIGHT IS PLACED ON EACH PAW.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Felix Duerr, veterinary professor, Colorado State University:
“When they put less pressure on the paw then that means that they’re more painful.”
RESULTS OF THE STUDY ARE EXPECTED NEXT YEAR.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Stephanie McGrath, veterinary professor, Colorado State University:
“The overall goal, the really long, longterm goal would be to translate it to human medicine.”
VETERINARIAN ASSISTANT LUKE BEYLER — WHO’S NOT PART OF THE STUDY — RECENTLY BEGAN GIVING C-B-D OIL TO ROBBY — A 14 YEAR OLD DOG WITH ARTHRITIS AND ANXIETY.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Luke Beyler, veterinary assistant, gives his dog Robby CBD:
“For the last year he hasn’t wanted to jump in my car but then after just a couple days he’s already jumping in my car again, which is to me a big thing.”
FOR NOW, DOG OWNERS LIKE BEYLER ARE WILLING TO GIVE C-B-D TO THEIR PET WITHOUT SCIENTIFIC DATA ON ITS EFFECTIVENESS.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Luke Beyler, human companion, Robby:
“It’s not going to hurt anything to try.”
BUT WHETHER IT ACTUALLY HELPS… IS A QUESTION PET OWNERS HOPE THE COLORADO STUDY WILL ANSWER.
