Re: Dog had 3 seizures

Thank you for writing back. We have 2 others dogs, and our female and Jack hung together on their runs. She goes out now, and turns around to look for him. So you lost Jake unexpectedly too. Even though you know it's coming, it catches you off guard. Hard to believe it started out with 1 seizure, an...

Re: Dog had 3 seizures

Lynne when you say Jake died the same way, what do you mean exactly? How old did you say he was? It is so hard without him. Everything in this house reminds us of him and we just cry and cry. Fifteen years with that perfect, smart companion that is no longer here. I just can't bear it at this point....

We Lost Our Baby

The seizures finally took their toll on our 15 year old baby. Seven years of this monster, and finally they attacked with a vengeance. We are so heartbroken and can do nothing but cry. I never, never want another epileptic dog.

Re: Dog had 3 seizures

Lynne we lost our dog tonight after 4 seizures today. After the 2nd one, he barked non-stop, could not walk without falling over, drooled all day. He was 15, and we decided he had enough. Had to travel quite a distance to an emergency vet, only to be told we would have to wait 3 hours. So we travele...

Re: Dog had 3 seizures

Thank you so much Lynne. Our dogs are our life, there is no place we'd rather be than at home with them. The seizures happening for the last 7 years have been so hard as you know. I don't know how he keeps fighting back at his age.

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...
