Re: Other dog's reaction to a seizing dog.

You probably heard about how a dog in seizure can be attacked by another household dog. That's the case with my Tony, and my rescue, Louise. It has been some time since Tony had a seizure, but when he did, Louise attacked him and I could hardly pull her off. Both are large Labrador retrievers so it'...

Tony has been seizure free for one year

Tony was having seizures averaging about once a month. The vet recommended no drugs for it until it became more frequent. So I tried CBD oil a few years ago. It seemed to help but not totally prevent seizures. His seizures were less frequent and clearly milder. I'm giving him full-spectrum CBD extra...

Tony has not had a seizure for almost three months, since he has been on his current CBD dose. Last week we had a severe lightening/thunderstorm at night.

I have a Labrador Retriever, Tony, who will be 7 next month. He had his first seizure when he was 4YO, then another four months later. They were diagnosed as idiopathic. After that, he didn't have any until last year. The vet said he does not need meds unless they are more frequent than monthly. The...
