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 ...

Seizures more Intense

Our dog has a grand mal seizure about every 13 weeks. Usually they occur in the middle of the night when he is sound asleep. From the time it begins, until he is on his feet stumbling around, it's around 6 minutes. The last 2 times, he had a seizure, then about 6 hours later he had another one. This...

Re: MRI tomorrow 4/9/18

Nobody can tell me when it's time to let go. My dog will let me know, and I'm not giving him up until then. Then you see the after effects of a grand mal seizure and just want to hold on tight.

Re: Beau's story

My dog had 2 seizures yesterday, 6 hours apart. He was asleep both times, the 2nd one was more intense. The paddling was really hard, and afterwards he spent the day just dragging. But yes, he is sound asleep. He goes about 13 weeks and is on no seizure medication, but we know if he has a seizure in...

Re: Here We Go Again!

Wow I could not imagine an hour and a half. We don't have him on any medication - he's almost 13 and we're scared of the side effects. Actually my husband refuses to put him on meds. The actually paddling doesn't last that long, but he'll just lay there for several minutes, then he'll jump up, and t...

Here We Go Again!

Our Jack, who is a german shepherd mix, started out having grand-mal seizures every 2 and half weeks. Then when he reached 3 weeks were thrilled. This last time he went 9 months without a seizure and we happily thought that was behind us. We completely stopped aspirin, I stopped spraying FeBreeze an...

Re: Senior rescue pit bull with recent seizures

I hate leaving my dog alone. He is so confused after a seizure that I'm afraid of what might happen. I know he won't get out of our fenced in yard, and we have dog door that lets him go in and out like he pleases. My biggest fear is we have 3 other dogs, and one of them growls at Jack after he's had...
