Introduction

Seizures in dogs are frightening, and you must know what to do when they happen. Fortunately, there are several preventative measures you can take and natural remedies that can help control a seizure before it happens.

Amongst all the other natural remedies, CBD oil is one of the best owing to its many advantages and benefits for animals. 

If you are wondering about using cbd oil for dog seizures, then you ought to know everything there is to know about it. 

So, here are some things you must know about using it for your dog's seizures. 

 

Can it help my dog with seizures?

CBD is a non-psychoactive element found in the cannabis plant. It can be used to treat anxiety, pain, and seizures, and it can also relieve other conditions such as arthritis and cancer. 

The best part about using CBD for your dog is that it does not have any side effects like other medications might. There are many different forms of CBD that you can give your dog, including edibles, paste, topical creams, and much more.

However, people may consider using CBD oil for dog seizures, but when it comes to anxiety or skin-related ailments, they can also use gummies or topical salves. 

 

Will the oil make my dog drowsy?

The oil can make your dog sleepy. It can also make your dog more alert, active, calm, or energetic. The strain of this oil you use determines how it affects your pup.

High strains have been known to help with pain relief and anxiety—the two common symptoms associated with epilepsy.

It can help reduce the severity of seizures and other symptoms.

How much to give?

The amount of oil you give your dog will depend on its size and the severity of its seizure. A good starting point is to give 1-2 drops every 12 hours, equivalent to about 250 mg daily. If this doesn't provide relief, try increasing the dosage by two drops at a time until you figure out the right amount for your dog.

 

How long does it take to work on dogs?

In some cases, the results can be seen in a few days. But in other cases, it may take longer. The same is true for conventional medications, which can take up to two weeks before they start working effectively. 

If you're giving CBD oil to a dog, it's important to remember that not all dogs react the same way. Some may be more sensitive than others and may require a lower dosage.

While it can take a few days to a few weeks to start working, it depends on the severity of your dog's seizure disorder. If you or your vet have already tried other treatments, it may take longer for CBD to show its effectiveness.

 

Do you need a prescription to give it?

CBD is a natural, organic product that is legal to buy and use in most countries. One doesn't need a prescription to purchase it for one's dog. There are several options for buying such a product, including authentic online retailers.

Also, it may be best to talk with your veterinarian about the appropriate dosage for your dog's needs before purchasing any products.

 

Conclusion

CBD is a natural medicine that is very effective for dogs suffering from seizures. The research on the subject has been limited, but there do appear to be some promising results
