    Anyone using cbd oil for arthritis, would you mind sharing what brand you use? My boy is turning 12 on Oct 1 and he is starting to have some problems with his legs giving out.

    Golden Retriever Senior Center
    Hi, My 4 1/2 year old golden, Sandy, won't jump up on the bed by herself anymore.
