The Best Cannabis Pet Supplements On Amazon That Helped Our Dog Walk Again

I have a Cocker Spaniel at home that is 12 years old. He suffers from severe hip dysplasia an abnormal formation of the hip socket that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. The dysplasia is so severe that at one point he lost all mobility. He was basically a paralyzed dog. It was heartbreaking hearing him cry because he couldn't move or walk to his food bowl. We had to put him in diapers and put dog pads because he couldn't go outside. He was in so much pain that at one point he didn't want anyone to touch him. I immediately went online searching for a solution and started educating myself about pet products with hemp or cannabis oil. 

Summer Safety! Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Urges Families to Leave Fireworks to the Professionals

 

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is reminding families to be safe this July 4th and avoid directly handling fire-related devices like fireworks and sparklers. During this time of celebration, Children's urges everyone to leave fireworks to the professionals.
 
 

"The Fourth of July is an occasion to celebrate outdoors and spend time with family, but nothing ruins a party like a trip to the emergency room," says James Fortenberry, M.D., Director of Critical Care Medicine and Pediatrician-in-Chief at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.  "With the long list of local professional firework displays available, there's no reason to risk life-threatening injuries and burns by putting on your own show.  Leave the fireworks to trained professionals."

According to the National Fire Protection Association, during the weeks surrounding July 4th an average of 200 people visit an emergency room with fireworks-related injuries.  Fifty-seven percent of all fireworks-related injuries occur during this time each year.  The risk of fireworks injury is highest for children ages five to 14, with more than twice the risk for the general population.



Children under 15 years old account for 39 percent of the estimated fireworks injuries, which can include burns, contusions/lacerations, concussion, scarring and even death, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

A list of some Atlanta-area public firework shows can be found here.  For more tips on summer safety from Children's, please visit www.choa.org/summersafety.
