Welcome to LotusTopia and Genie’s Story
Our family consists of dogs and cats. They don’t all necessarily get along. Their comfort and happiness is of utmost importance to us. One of our most important member, our golden boy, our Airedale named Genie. He’s handsome and he knows it.
A couple of years ago, we discovered Genie had a nasal growth on his giant schnoz. By the time we got him to the vet, the tumor was growing very fast. The vet immediately scheduled a surgical procedure in order to remove the growth. After surgically removing the tumor, it was tested for malignancy. Awesome news! The test came back benign.
Less than a week later the tumor came back. This time the tumor was growing twice as fast as it had before. Our vet scheduled another surgery with the top surgical vet in the area. Surgery went well. The tumor was retested. Unfortunately, this time the test came back malignant. We were destroyed. After the surgery, our vet was concerned that there were still slight margins of the tumor left. She felt very strongly that the sarcoma would come back and come back quickly. The vets were wonderfully supportive and kind. After all, they kept his nose. For an Airedale Terrier, the nose is everything.
We were presented with two options. One was do nothing. Genie’s life expectancy was three to six months. The other option was radiation. Radiation is very expensive. It was $10k for the most basic package.. Most importantly, radiation on Genie’s nose would put him through uncertain suffering and pain. We love Genie with all our heart. if we put Genie through the radiation, the average life expectancy was 18 months.
After many tears and soul searching, we came up with an idea. We already knew the medical benefits of cannabis. We had seen it with our own eyes. What we weren’t sure of is the medical benefit of cannabis for dogs. We threw ourselves into research. Most likely, Genie wasn’t going to be around for long, so we didn’t have much time. We weren’t willing to put him through the physical and psychological misery
associated with it for an extra couple of months, at best. We weren’t willing to give up either.
We read about a Canadian name Rick Simpson who was credited with curing many people and pets of cancer utilizing cannabis extraction. After much research, we came up with a plan and formula to create a topical for Genie’s nose. We came up with a topical lotion that incorporated the full spectrum of the cannabis plant. We would put on his nose twice a day. After almost two years, there is no sign of the tumor. We told as many vets as we could about this. Some were not surprised as they had heard much anecdotal evidence of this type of treatment working.
