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...

Re: Golden retriever puppy with epilepsy- I have questions

A little baby having to go through that. It just doesn't make sense to me, but my 14 year old dog having them for the last 5 years doesn't make sense to me either. Something is up with that little brain of Bruno's. I hope it works itself out so he's not on medication his whole life.

Re: Golden retriever puppy with epilepsy- I have questions

Wow that is sad that a little puppy is going thru that already. Already on meds for seizures at 8 weeks old. I sure hate that for you and your little one. Maybe once the Trifexis is out of his system they will stop? I feel for you.

Re: hemp oil or CBD oil for seizures

We have our german shepherd mix on Pet Releaf Hemp capsules. His last seizures, which was less than a week ago and he had 2 in one day, were just as violent. They were 5 hours apart, and both were intense. That was huge disappointment. BUT once he was on his feet, he was not as drunk, not falling ov...
