Dr. Gandolf is a proud ambassador for Dr. Fossum's pet CBD
The research is convincing that properly refined and administered CBD helps pets with osteoarthritis & post-operative pain, itching, seizures & anxiety.
It's safe, it's cost-competitive, there is a money back guarantee, and it can make your pet feel better and younger!
It's difficult to find a reputable brand of CBD, even more so for pets, as there is a lack of regulation. Dr. Fossum has excelled greatly as a boarded vet surgeon who authored on of the most commonly utilized small animal surgery reference books. Dr. Gandolf has great confidence that her products are made with the pets' best interests in mind, adhere to all human-grade production regulations, and are provided with the most-specific dosing recommendations available.
Dr. Fossum's product has been started with Dr. Gandolf's 12-year-old dog, Timber, for osteoarthritis associated with her previous bilateral knee surgeries. Here is how she responded!
