Can I use peppermint cbd oil with my dragon, adult, has probable gastric neuroendocrine tumor (gnt)

Approximately 10.5 oz.

How much should be given. A drop?

Is peppermint toxic to dragons?

Eagerly awaiting your responses.

Thank you

Hello,

Funny that you ask this question....
I just started using CBD with peppermint extract for our rescue who has scoliosis & has
some pain caused by that. It seems to be helping him.
I did research it & to my knowledge peppermint is not toxic. The product I got is only just
slightly flavored so it is extremely mild. I give 1-2 drops, daily.
Personally, I think it's worth a try.
It is known to help cancer.

Thank you, Tracie,

1 in am and 1 in pm? How long before you saw improvement?

He is 10-11 oz.

Also noticed the site didn't notify me of your reply. It is set to do so, but didn't.

Any ideas why not?

How do I submit a photo?

You can upload photos here https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ and post them using the XIMG button when you reply.

I'm interested to know if you find this treatment helpful. Gastric Neuroendocrine Carcinoma seems to be getting more common unfortunately =(

Tracie, I will let you know.

This is Buddha.

Trying to get money for an ultrasound to confirm.

He doesn't look too happy, poor guy. Did you have bloodwork done that showed the huge spike in glucose? That's usually the giveaway.

All tests were negative except the glucose.

Peppermint is a stimulant. So, I give his 2nd drop around 3pm. He goes to bed at 7pm. I will give him his 1st drop around 10am.

Hello!

Great, definitely let me know how he does. His black beard, does it subside right now?
I hope this helps out. I haven't noticed any side effects on our dragon.
If you get hold of the blood tests, be sure to post them or you can email them to me too.
It's too bad he is having these issues, as so many seem to be getting stomach cancer. I
am starting to think it is the commercialized foods.

Hi,

His black beard is constant. I literally syringe feed him.

He does crawl around sometimes.

Hello,

Poor Buddha, I hate to hear his beard is dark constantly.
Has it gotten any better using the CBD yet or is it too early to tell?
I will be thinking about you both. I'm sorry he is so ill.

Still too early, I think.

Why isn't this site notifying me of responses?

Thank you!
