"I was shocked and surprised. To me, it was a hail Mary, and it worked,” said pet owner Christopher Cano.

"This is just the cannabanoid oil,” said holistic veterinarian Dr. Anne Lampru. “This is not anything with the psychoactive effect at all."

The oil is considered a hemp product and is legal in the United States.
