Re: hemp oil or CBD oil for seizures

Monicad2018 So you do give your dog the CBD capsules from Holisapet? I looked at that last night after I read your post. How big is your dog? Do you only give him one capsule a day?

Re: Seizures more Intense

Monica our dog is on no drugs - seizures are about every 10 weeks. Just recently has he started having 2 in one day. I will definitely check out Holisapet (sorry if I spelled that wrong). Do you use the CBD or the hemp capsules? A pharmacist told me hemp is CBD. A 30 day supply of these capsules is ...

Re: Seizures more Intense

My vet will not talk to me about it. We are giving him 1 capsule a day which is what the bottle says for his weight. It is HEMP oil, and a pharmacist told me hemp is the same as CBD oil. Got it from Pet ReLeaf. It's really expensive. I have seen where it just doesn't help some dogs, and for us, this...

Re: Life after epilepsy

We are the same way. Every time our Jack is just getting comfy we are watching him like a hawk. Every bump in the night we're listening. A good nights sleep doesn't come very often. This dog is our life - we never leave overnight, we don't take vacations. We have other pets too, so we prefer to be h...

Re: Seizures more Intense

UPDATE: We have used the hemp oil capsules for about 6 weeks. Jack went 10 weeks between seizures which is about normal. This past Sunday, he had 2 grand mals, 5 hours apart. Both were intense with the hard paddling, excessive drooling and acting like he was eating the carpet. They lasted just as lo...

Re: Seizures more Intense

I never want to be without that kind of love in my life. I could not imagine that either. We've taken in many strays, adopted many from shelters. But these seizures? I cannot take it. Watching them go thru that is gut wrenching. Yes Jack being 14 I would say we've done pretty good taking care of him...

Re: Seizures more Intense

Same here! We bought this CBD as the seizures get so intense, such hard paddling, acting like he's eating the carpet. From the time he collapses, to the time he is on his feet is 6 minutes. He is 14, so once he is on his feet he just falls back down. The CBD is a last resort in hopes they will be sh...

Re: Seizures more Intense

it did absolutely nothing for Killy's seizures

Ugh I hate hearing that! We have our dog on it now; we are in week 3 I think of the oil, 6 weeks since his last seizure. So, we really won't know whether it's helping until his next seizure. We are SO dreading that next one as we always do.

Re: HELP! I can't take this much longer.

I have just put my dog on CBD oil last week. His seizures are grand mal, and I also have to leave for work and wonder what I'll find when I get home. He has just started having a second seizure in the same day, like 6 hours after the first, and the second one he kicks a lot harder and acts like he i...

Re: Nothing is Working!

Wow I am SO sorry you ended up losing your baby. Shocked to see that it came to that. Going thru this with my dog makes me so hesitant about adopting another dog - I simply cannot go thru this again. Our dog is 14, seizures are getting more intense, but nothing like what you experienced. I hate that...

Re: Seizures more Intense

We are actually meeting with our vet tomorrow. I was just reading about the CBD oil and was wondering how you know which to get! Thought I would check here for more info - thank you!! I didn't know there was a dog food for seizures. We feed him Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind. I am assuming the food you...

Re: Seizures more Intense

CBD oil is something you get from the vet? This time he went 10 weeks instead of 13. Last night was pretty intense, and took awhile before he could walk without falling down. His back legs are weak anyway. Ugh, it's a hard thing to deal with. Then you can't sleep because you're expecting the 2nd one...

Re: Seizures more Intense

He is NOT on meds as they are 3 months apart so far. I have read that vets don't medicate if it doesn't happen more than once a month. He is 14! Hate to put him on drugs. I don't know what to do. Wonder if the meds would make him feel worse than he already does.

Re: Cluster seizures out of the blue

My dog has recently started having 2 seizures in one day. His come about every 3 months, and the last two times, he has had 2, around 6 hours apart. He is on no meds, he is 14. The 2nd seizure seems more intense than the first. Always scared it'll happen when I am at work and he'll fall off the dog ...
