The AKC Canine Health Foundation (AKCCHF) is conducting a major clinical trial to study CBD oil as a treatment for epilepsy and seizures in. In this article I am going to explore cannabidiol, or CBD, and show you how it can be used to control epilepsy and seizures in dogs. I'll explore everything from. If you've been hearing about CBD oil for seizures in dogs and are wondering what the reseaarch says, we've got you covered.
CBD Epilepsy Using For Dogs With
He is a small dog. I tried 2 sprays at first and he slept most of the day away. I am very glad to hear that. My girl who was almost 17 had a horrific seizure and I thought that we almost lost her.
I am going against the Vets orders with the medication that she has prescribed. My two dogs are my life. I am saddened by your story. I have a Epi dog but mine is not having as many as yours. He is only three though. I have never put him on tradition meds. We are controlling it herbs and acupuncture for now. I am looking into adding CBD. But I just wanted to ask if you knew about this website?
They have a lot of great advice. Just wAnted to know there are some great helpers out there that have been dealing with this for a long time. Also if you get him to a raw diet with no kibble that might help as well. We have a Rhodesian Ridgeback 5yrs who started having seizures late last year. He is on Zonisamide and Levetiracetam — each 6 pills a day. In the last month his body stopped producing red blood cells, he is anemic and has lost about 16lbs.
We are researching options and are curious about cannabinoid therapy. Thank you and hope your boy is thriving. I know your post was from 7 months ago, but my Rottie is literally exactly as you described about your Great Dane; almost every 10 days exactly I document every seizure , and clusters of Im not telling anybody here anything they already do not know, but its horrible to watch.
Hes only a year and a half, and wants to do nothing but play all day. Just a really great dog, and I feel so gut wrenchingly bad for him..
Im willing to try anything to help him, so im going to do my homework on this CBD route.. Nobody wants to watch an animal suffer. Good luck finding a CBD product that will help Rusty. I found a really great company! All of their products are reasonably priced and are the best I have used. I am hopeful though.. I also wanted to share that my schnauzer is on Zonisamide which is a newer drug without the side effects of Phenobarb and Potassium Bromide..
I hope this is helpful. It is aweful for some. And my dog still seized on it.. Great it worked for yours.. We have been using CBD treats for a year and a half on our min pin. They are working very well. Our dog still seized every 6 weeks on the Phenobarb. We took one pill away in Feb of this year and she had one seizure after 8 weeks and no more. Her seizures lasted for up to 4 hours. The first one after 14 weeks lasted 15 min as my daughter put a half a dropper of the oil in her mouth.
The same after we took a pill away in 8 weeks and again 15 min. No more since then. We are going to wait a few months and try to remove that last pill. We know we can use the oil in a dropper if needed. I have researched it for a long time and this is a pure company.
I hope this helps your dogs and all of ours suffering! Is it made in USA? There is a post on the main page that says no more international orders?
Also, their website is super sketchy and has spyware built in? It has not helped my dog for his symptoms. It came highly recommended but I think he may need some with THC.
This company came highly recommended from two of the main holistic doctors I follow. They have been quickly responsive and they call you right back and answered a ton of questions.
Good luck if you find something that works please post. Out of all of the replys did anything work or help. If so please let me no. I will be trying something once I research a little more. If i find anything out i will let you know. I hope all is good. Did this work for your dog? Mine is on the phenobarbital too and she just stumbles around in a haze. It no way to live life. Phenobarbital has some nasty side effects. You should ween of the phenobarbital and start using CBD.
This article explains how: I have ordered CBD oil also. I was told by the vet and also the company I ordered if from that CBD oil will not interfere with prescription meds. All or nearly all of the evidence for efficacy in dogs are anecdotal. My personal vet had a colleague leave their animal hospital to go research cbd full time, so I believe the peer reviewed cbd efficacy on our pets is sure to be published in the near future.
My vet also has a 50lb lab mix with ideopathic epilepsy that is being treated with cbd that she has confirmed to me has shown a decrease in his seizures frequency and intensity. My boy seamus is 6. He only had 1 every month or so but in october started having clusters.
The only way i can get them to stop when they start every days is the er vet for a shot of pheno. Hes on 2 meds a day and taking 5 pills every 12 hours.
I had him on cbd that i got from a pet store but found out it wasnt really cbd and mass produced in china. At least thats what i was told. At this point i want him off all the meds and on oil. The seiziours are grand mal and without the pheno shot wont stop for days.
He recovers between them but they happen every cpl hours. Anyone out there have any suggestions about what i could give him? I have a girl miniature dachshund Bella who started having seizures 3 years ago. My husband and I are holistic so we wanted to do as much holistic as we could and ended up putting her on a low dose of pheno to control the seizures. Just recently she started having them two times a day so the vet increased her pheno. The reason I am posting is because one of the things we do morning and night on all 4 paws in-between toes and inside of large pad is rub essential oils on Bella.
We use Frankincense, Valor, now Valor 2 since they are out of stock on the original and peace and calming. These are all Young Living Essential Oils. Equal drops in a small bottle so we shake it each time put on our fingers and rub on each paw. I thought this might help you too. She is also on a completely raw diet. We buy the frozen raw food Instinct at the feed store or the pet store. Wish I had known about this two years ago.
Such a simple thing and I would still have my dog with me. As I see it, pets are just part of the family. Almost every pet has responded to cannabidiol that seems to bring out the best personalities in their pets as well as controlling several different kinds of conditions, just like people.
Withdrawal from addictive and dependent medication like phenobarb has not been a problem for either species. This is a very informative post. Even though you should definitely consult your veterinarian, here are a few home remedies you can try out:.
Prepare a mixture of water and oatmeal. Leave it on for around 10 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water. The oatmeal will help in relieving dry skin and reduce itchiness. My boxer-mix Jake has been suffering from seizures once a month always around the same time of the month since I adopted him six years ago and maybe before. He has been taking PB twice a day for the last 6 years. The seizures starting getting worse about a year ago, the last one before I started him on Hemp Oil lasted about 1.
I was so devastated that I told the vet that I was considering to put him to sleep that bad. It has been 3 months since I started and instead of getting 1hour grand-Mal , he gets 2 seizures within hours of each other still once a month always with the same result — Note: I will not discontinue using PB, he had his blood work done two weeks ago and his levels are healthy. So far I have not tried other products, I am still researching.
But not sure where to start. My girl has seizures once a month as well. Very cyclical and always clusters about in 24 hours. Have you seen legitimate results each time the seizures occur? I called and left a message regarding dosage for a 37 pound English Setter and they called me back the next morning. By the way, they suggested starting off with 1 drop twice a day using the mg strength.
If the seizures do not improve, I can increase the dosage to 2 drops twice a day and so on. You can also not overdose a dog on CBD oil. My hope is to get her off all the prescription drugs. We need to know dosage for treatment. If you know approximately how much for a 22lb dog we should give him. We need help not ready to lose this family member.
Has anyone successfully gotten their pup off of Phenobarb and strictly on CBD? She has maybe one seizure every months. Any of these drugs like Phenobarbital need to cleared out of the body through a weaning off process. Did any of you give your dogs a flea and tick prevention before they got the seizures?
One of the terrible side effects from the spot ons, the collars and the ones you give to them by mouth are seizures if they live. Seizures are terrible to see in a pet. If I live to be I will never forget them. Not knowing when and if they will have another one is almost worse.
If you are now, take them off of them and use only natural products. My mix breed rescue dog has epilepsy, specifically cluster seizures every weeks since day one. It is legal and available over the counter in all states, to my knowledge, we live in NC. He has been seizure free for over 3 months now. I initially tried CBD treats from Cannapet with zero positive results, his seizures continued unabated. CW should be available in your local health food stores and head shops.
Give it a try, it really does work, at least it does for us. Buddy enjoys his day, has a great appetite, and sleeps like, well, a dog should. My dog is also 7 lbs. Thanks for any info you have and so glad Buddy is benefiting from this! That was a typo on my part. The upper oral dose limit for CBD products recommended by veterinarian Dr. Everyone squeezes a dropper differently and the bottle label will tell you a full dropper is an average of. I like accuracy in giving meds so I used a syringe to put.
Hope this helps, sorry for the typo. Thank you for that info I will look into that brand… but is it real chocolate? Chocolate is a no no for dogs just curious. But I will look into this company thank you! Could you help me understand you better? Your post is a year old now, so I was wondering if all is still well and good with your rescue dog with this product? I have a mixed breed chihuahua, female. Like every week now.
I used a human weight scale. How many drops would you recommend to start with? However, if you follow the Hawthorne formula you should get some results. A more recent article can be found here https: Another reason to perhaps have a conversation with your vet.
Personally, my dog lives in doors with one other dog so we do not give annual shots just to avoid side effects. Both dogs are healthy and happy. Thanks a lot for replying! My dog is also indoors and only goes out to do her business. That gives me more hope! The seizures come and go but I am very positive now that the yearly vaccines are the root of the problem. She had been seizure free for 2. She gets her attacks 3 times a week now. The meds are starting to not work anymore. We got cbd oil for pets as wells as dog cookies with cbd oil at the marijuana dispensary in Victoria.
Needed a note from the vet. My dog has a petit mal seizure about every 6 weeks. I need advice on how much to give my dog and how often. Gilda-dosing depends on the size of your dog and how much they weigh. Continue with that dose unless he has another seizure then increase the daily dose a little more. Do the biscuits or oil have THC?
It may be easier to talk at dye. Send me a message. I hope it works to stop your dogs suffering. I believe you can here: It is the best, much research available. How can I legally import these products into Australia for my 10 yo Staffy, who only just started having seizures 6 weeks ago. The vet has prescribed Pb and valium to counteract the restlessness, but going from my personal experience both these products suck with long term use. Any advise would be welcomed.
Hi Stephen I saw your post and looked around a bit. I came across this on facebook. Never heard of the company. Maybe this will help you out. Hi Stephen, Try here: Click on SHOP, you will be very glad you did. Best of recovery for your Staffy. I decided to give Canna-Pet advanced cbd oil a try. I have been giving her 4 drops every 7hrs it takes 45mins to work. Not sure if I should stop giving it to her or take her off phenobarbital.
I think pheno is giving her a bad side effect. She constantly licks her mouth when she gets stressed or excited. I messaged Canna Pet to let them know what is going on.
I wonder if their testimonials are a bunch of lies. Do the oil by itself. If they both treat the same thing they could be interacting. If your going to find out if the oil is working you may need to take her of the meds for a bit. Monitor her with your vet. I am interested in trying instead of putting my dog on medication with a ton of side effects. He is a Would this stuff make that worse? I live in Missouri so am I able to get this?
Hi Donna, This company has the only pure hemp paste that includes the whole plant , unaltered. It has so many medical benefits and can be dosed by their weight. Have you found the dosage for your Bichon? I jsut want to know if CBD will help my dog if he has a cough?????? My pitbull lately has a little bit of a cough and his bark and growl sounds way off and muffled and strained. The vet I took him to was scared to examine him because he growled.
Stupid vet wanted to use anesthesia just to examine my boy. I think its kennel cough. He has had kennel cougfh before and I used left over meds with initial positive results but I only had a little left over from the last time he had kennel cough.
I have CBD oil for dogs here thiough. I use a good organic honey. Look up honey and kennel cough. I read if you do nothing it will go away anyway. I am ready to start making my own THC coconut oil that he can orally take!
I just need to know how many mg I think is just right! But just like any other medicine you need to have the right mg to not Od! Please I need help!
Have you tried Keppra? It is way safer than phenobarb. Talk to your vet about it. Phenobarb is cheap but its not always the way to go. Have you tried raw diet reelraw. Ask your vet about using heartguard every 6 weeks instead of monthly these things are triggers for my dog.
Here is a great website that has lots of good info for what to do during a seizure. Ice pack on his back things to do to lessen the post itical period. He had 2 in 3 days then the vet put him on phenobarbital. My whole family was relieved them yesterday he had 2 small 5 — 10 second seizures were only his mouth flickered. Now today he has had 3 seizures the first 2 not very long but the 3rd pretty bad and scary.
Anybody with any knowledge please help. We will be going to the vet but i fear wen i mention cbd the vet will put up a brick wall or not know anything at all. Please if anything has worked for your pet or a story you know or any info at all please help.
Older dogs who get seizures might have a brain tumor. I would ask your vet to do a scan to be sure. A young dog that gets seizures most likely has epilepsy. She has 1 seizure a month and they started a year ago. Phenobarb can have bad side effects. I took my dog off of the phenobarb and put her on keppra. Try a different vet or call around and ask different vets their opinions.
You might get one who knows more about CBD oil. My vet gave my dog a prescription to xanax. Which did nothing but make her sleep too deep and it scared me so I took her off of them. CBD seems like a safer way to go. I just watched a video of a dog with the shakes and the owner gave him 2 sprays of cbd and he stopped shaking.
Hi Angie how is your doing on the keppra? The pheno alone she was still having them. Well in August she had 2 seizures back to back and we had to put her on phenobarbital. She then went 2 months without one. So the phenobarbital and Keppra mix is working better. I am now reducing her Keppra to see if the phenobarbital will work on its own. Even though it has more side effects.
I was looking into zonisamide before Keppra but my vet recommended potassium bromide which I passed on. Too many bile and blood work tests for me to afford. We wanted to try natural. We elimated commercial dog food and treats. I read some herbs trigger seizures which were in her dog food and treats. Now we feed her a raw diet. Pheno had some side effects in the first month.
She is very active same with Zonisamide. All dogs are different. Hi my dog is a female Rottweiler now 85lbs she started getting seizures after my other dog passed. So far almost 1 month seizure free.
She would have 2 or 4 day every 7 to 15 days I put ice packs on top of her head and one of the bottom lower back to shorten them. After I give some organic coconut oil and a raw chop meat. I feed my dog raw diet now. I did try cbd oil from canna-pet only helped with her anxiety she still had seizures. I told my vet I was giving it to her. He was cool about it. I feel your pain.
About weeks ago he weighed , but since the vet prescribed him a pharma med he has been drinking and eating like crazy. I wish more doctors and vets were more versed in the benefits associated with CBD. A majority of them seem to be afraid of it.
There is no hard and fast rule about dosages when talking about CBD. Every person and animal is different, with different ailments. If possible, find a vet that understands the value in the holistic and natural approach and supports using CBD oil.
Schedule a consultation to discuss the core benefits of CBD oil, dosaging and why it may be a safer alternative. Using CBD oil for dogs helps them feel better and more active despite the everyday aches and pains of aging. The answer should really be no. Both humans and pets require the same quality of pure hemp extract.
Low quality CBD oil can be riddled in heavy metals, solvents, pesticides, or evewn molds. The only differences of the CBD oil between humans and dogs are the potency amounts and sometimes the carrier oils. In tinctures, organic coconut oil is the best for dogs as they digest, though some humans may develop flatulence or more frequent bowel movements from coconut oil. Dogs leave paw prints on our hearts.
As loving owners, we can further help them in times of need. The same natural remedies that benefit us can sometimes help our dogs too.
As long as you take the time to consult with your veterinarian and do the research, CBD oil can be of great assistance when it comes to helping your dog get back its fun loving, energetic self. The market is getting saturated with many different CBD brands. Hello, I have a 4 year old Golden Retriever. He has starting having seizures. I have talked with his Vet. He is taking mg on Zonisamide twice a day.
Preliminary data from CBD clinical trials ‘promising’
In this article I will be covering the amazing results CBD oil for dog seizures is having for families everywhere and what this means. If you did not know, it is also possible for a dog to end up having seizures. The good news is that CBD oil for dogs can come in handy to help. We're all familiar with how humans can have seizures and how there has been research around CBD oil's potential benefits in decreasing.
