Darcey. 6 months old, Essex
Daisy, 12 years old, West Lothian
DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
Darcey is a lovely pup pug rescued from a breeder in Eastern Europe. When rescued, she looked dirty, confused, and obviously anxious about leaving her mum and siblings behind, even if that world was infested with ticks.
When she arrived at her new home she was three months old, and a whole family awaited her.
Many people and new challenges were expecting her; she found lovable children, exciting things to shred and thrilling furniture to chew up. Her mum decided that much love, patience, and CBD treats could help her feel more at ease. After four months, Darcey has become an adorable, relaxed and happy pup who finally got the family she deserved.
Some things didn't change: she still is soft and cute and can't help to beseech for her CBD treats.
Daisy is a 12-year-old Golden retriever adopted from a farm where she grew up surrounded by many animals but no children; she didn't know how to deal with them.
Sweet-natured, affectionate and lively, she is full of beans and never stops running and jumping.
Now at an adult age, she needed to change her overwhelming approach to children and learn how to calm down and deal with them gently.
To help Daisy learn new rules and change her behaviour, her mum decided Besties were a good option.
After six months of active learning and much effort from her, Daisy got a confident and secure approach to children and a new successful relationship with them.
She keeps being the same boisterous cheeky girl when she can but gets a distinction when she is with children.
Zippi, 2-year-old Husky, Lincolnshire
SEPARATION AND ANXIETY
Zippi loves to hear his voice...
Dad has to leave him home alone when he goes shopping for food for both; That is the moment when Zippi starts practising the whole Sea Shanties repertoire he knows, "aaaawooossss."
Zippi gets very anxious and cries until his Dad is back. Neighbours were distraught and probably unhappy with the situation.
On December 2022, fireworks, many people around him, and thunderous parties worsened the situation, and Zippi needed some help. One amazing and caring neighbour brought a solution; was this possible? Would it help? A lovely wrapped present was given to Zippi.
Zippi started his treatment with Besties, and now, after two months, he is controlling his anxieties and fears; Dad is free to go shopping and can leave him home alone for a couple of hours; They often go together, and Zippi patiently waits in the car until Dad returns.
Goofy, 10 years old, Lancashire
Whether salt and pepper, black and fire or caramel, Cockers always look like they just got a blowout at the village hairdresser.
Goofy is a gentleman with a temper, and his hearing and vision loss did not help him. He seemed confused by his surroundings; his owner started walking him on the lead, a change he didn't enjoy.
All these changes made him depressed and anxious, and his family felt they had to do something to help Goofy during this change in life.
The options were few; he is an adult dog with some stomach problems, and the medication could create new and different issues. They started giving Goofy full-spectrum CBD treats twice daily, which worked wonders for him. Now more relaxed and not so grumpy, he enjoys the pleasant warmth of the logs lying next to the fireplace with his long-time companion Peter indulging themselves with some biscuits and CBD treats.
Tiny, 13 years old Chihuahua, Lancashire
Tiny, 13 years old Chihuahua, Lancashire
Mittens, 1-year-old Cockapoo, Grampians
PAIN AND MOBILITY
Tiny is a 2.5 kg chihuahua who travelled all around the world.
She has lived with her mum since she was four months old, and they go everywhere together. Now at her golden age, she suffered a hip dysplasia in one hip as well arthritis. This condition was making their trips and rendezvous shorter and less frequent. Tiny was very depressed and distressed because of the pain and inability to keep enjoying out and about with her mum as they used to.
Every day was long, and her inability to walk deteriorated her overall condition.
Her mum decided to do something to bring her happiness and mobility back; She read an article about CBD and how great the results were, alleviating pain, reducing inflammation and relieving arthritis.
Tiny began with her Bestie's daily use. After two months of having them, the recovery started to be noticed; she went back for a stroll around the garden chasing leaves, looked more agile and stopped licking her legs to mitigate her obvious pain.
Her quality of life got a boost of energy, she showed more appetite, and her mood improved daily.
If you are in the Lancashire area, you will find them having tea with friends at fancy garden centres nearby home.
This adorable, sweet comedian cockapoo has the personality of a clown.
He lives in a house with a big garden which compels him to visit the groomer often.
Everybody knows that the dog grooming experience can be a stressful one.
When he was nine months old, his mum started desensitising him to the noise of the grooming tools with the help of his yummy Besties.
Mittens is now 18 months old, and every visit to the groomer is a feast! When the moment arrives, he jumps into the car confident and with the certainty that everything is under control, knowing that he will get his Besties after being groomed, so why not take this opportunity to strengthen his social skills, meets other doggies, and genuinely appreciate the benefits of grooming;
He doesn't mind being groomed, and why give up on these delicious little pleasures?
Let's start the party!
Pudding, 13 years old Yorkie, Stirlingshire
Pudding is a mature adult (he doesn't want to be considered a senior yet)!
He was adopted at the age of 10 when his Dad passed away. His new family knew little about him but knew he deserved a good retirement scheme.
Pudding was probably not very socialised; the loud noises, TV and washing machine were a terrible nightmare to him; He was restless at night but sluggish and sleepy during the day.
His ability to learn was not at its best; Pudding's awareness and sense of sight and hearing deteriorated; his social interaction was decreasing, he could be better, and his new family wanted to help him.
After trying with Besties' for 20 days, Pudding allowed his mum to bathe, groom, and cuddle him like a pro!
Now he looks happy and comfortable with the world and people around him, apart from lying on his mum's lap when he decides his too tired after chasing the ball for some time!
Ninette, 4 years old French Bulldog, Wiltshire
PAIN AND MOBILITY
Ninette was born with spine issues, which are frequent in flat-faced dogs.
After some months and due to going under regular painkillers medication, she developed a kidney disease; Thanks to her vet's early detection, she survived and lived an everyday life.
Her mum knew she had to do something radical and different.
The only solution she could see to help Ninette was probably to try alternative treatments; That was when her mum decided to try Besties' CBD treatment. This decision has changed Ninette's life; she is back to almost everyday life commitments and needs to take several shorter walks daily to maintain her weight and fit.
For her, The Best is yet to come!
Buddy. 6 years old Labrador, Aberdeenshire
Buddy went through a stressful event when he was three years old, and a hunter accidentally shot him; That stressful situation triggered his IBS problems.
After that day, he started to suffer from allergic reactions. He was licking and nibbling his feet, scratching his ears or generally overgrooming.
Buddy's family vet treated him with topical medication, but his skin started to look crusted and flaky, and his hair fell more than usual.
After these medications, they tried oral antifungal medication, but Buddy began losing his appetite, vomiting and diarrhoea.
His family chose a different approach to the problem and asked the vet about CBD treatments. After listening to his vet's opinion, they started with CBD treatment. After two months of therapy with Besties, his owners noticed a positive change in his allergic reaction. He was no longer scratching and licking as before, and after a year of treatment, he was back to the usual happy and cheeky Buddy.
