Re: Dog had 3 seizures

Well believe it or not, the tremors and twitching seem to be lessening! Each day he is better, and when he goes on his walk, he actually acts like he feels great! We are giving him 2 CBD capsules a day in hopes it would help him. We'll never give up until he gives up. Over the weekend we just knew t...

Dog had 3 seizures

A couple of days ago our 15 year old dog had 3 seizures in 12 hours. First one was mild, second was worse, third one was the snarling, paddling hard, etc. Now he has a twitch in his head, and his back legs twitch at the same time. I'm afraid it's time to let him go. We've tried everything over the p...

Re: Lights

I have wondered the same thing about lights. If my dog is in a sound sleep in a room besides our office, I leave the light on even when I go to bed. He is 15, and I wonder how well he can see in the dark.

Re: CBD is a let-down...

Hello! Just saw your question to Chris regarding the CBD oil. We give our german shepherd mix a CBD capsule once a day. I get it from Holistapet, 600 mg. He is 15 years old now. He actually went 20 weeks this last time, had 2 seizures last weekend. They were mild compared to what we've seen from him...

Has anyone tried this?

Saw this advertised and wondering if anyone has tried it? I am leary of being scammed but the CBD oil is not helping my dogs seizures at all. Any suggestions are appreciated - my boy is 14 and has intense grand mal seizures about every 10 weeks, and when it happens, it's 2 in one day. https://www.al...

CBD is a let-down...

We've been giving our dog CBD for about 9 months. He has grand-mal seizures, and the CBD was a last resort. He will go anywhere from 10-13 weeks. This past weekend he had a violent seizure - he was sound asleep. Seemed to last forever but probably didn't. Even when he was back on his feet he was wal...

What is the best CBD?

Every time I order the CBD capsules from Holistapet the price increases. Today I went to place an order and it has increased $15 per bottle!! And my last order was November 2, like 2 months ago. This is the 3rd time I have ordered from them and the price goes up every time. Is there any other proven...

Re: New to seizures w/ 7 year old labradoodle

My dog whines too! He drives us nuts sometimes! He will not let us out of his sight, just stares and whines. We do not have him on meds, just CBD capsules for the last 5 months. His seizures comes around every 10-13 weeks, sometimes 2 in one day. I pray that these meds your dog is on is just right f...

Re: CBD Capsules

I thought about a cam but that would just freak me out. I work 18 miles from home and wouldn't be able to do anything. The CBD hasn't disappointed me. I already knew it wouldn't stop the seizures, and we did get an extra month this time. Since I was able to tell that he had been thru that, I do know...

CBD Capsules

Well we have had our 14 year old dog on CBD capsules for about 5 months. He has grand mal seizures about every 10 weeks, usually 2 in a day. Yesterday made 14 weeks, I get home today and he was off balance and CONSTANT whining. I found the evidence of the seizure he had after I left for work. I wasn...

Re: New to seizures - not even sure if it's epilepsy

Oh I know the feeling of guilt. Your dog has many of the symptoms that my dog has. ASPIRIN would trigger his seizures, he'd have one about every 2 weeks! We took him completely off the aspirin, now its every 10 weeks. There is no doubt the aspirin triggers it, so I am even careful about household cl...

Re: New to seizures - not even sure if it's epilepsy

Wow I am so sorry for you and your dog. Is it possible he hurt his leg during the last seizure? We have to pull our dog out from under the bed or whatever so he doesn't break his leg while paddling. Your baby sounds pitiful. Four-nine years old? Surely somebody can be more specific? I personally wou...

Re: Dosage of keppra and keppra XR

Wow that is a lot of drugs. Our 14 year old is on NO drugs. His come about every 10 weeks, they are awful. We haven't even asked about the meds as we prefer not to do that, and I don't know if they even would prescribe anything. I hate the "lets try this" and then the "lets try this". I can't do tha...

Re: New to CEN with a story...

Suzanne, our dog is sound asleep when he has his seizures. We don't even think he's beginning to wake up. He's had grand-mal seizures since 2013 (that we know of). To make a long story short, we figured out that aspirin triggers them, so we completely stopped that - seizures went from every 2 weeks ...

Re: 3 months seizure free!!!

Funny you would mention "trigger". We had our dog on aspirin everyday for arthritis. He's have a seizure every 2 weeks. We took him completely off of the aspirin and now he goes about 10 weeks. We've tried everything we can think of. No drugs though. Now we're trying CBD oil and waiting to see how t...
