CBD for canine seizures?

I came across this video today and I wanted to share it.

Many people have reported success with CBD stopping their dogs’ seizures. I’m not sure if this dog is suffering from anxiety or if he’s having focal seizures. I don’t know for sure whether the CBD is actually stopping the tremor or if there is something else responsible.

If you decide to use CBD on your pet, follow these two rules:

  1. Talk to your veterinarian before you administer anything to your pup. CBD is an inhibitor of p450 enzymes. These enzymes are important in metabolizing many veterinary medications. They also modulate the activity of p-glycoproteins, which are involved in cellular drug transport. Either of these two effects of CBD can lead to some pretty serious medication interactions if they aren’t taken into account. Your veterinarian can help you treat your pup in the safest way possible.
  2. Make sure that you are getting your CBD from a reputable company. The industry is poorly regulated right now. There are a lot of people looking to make a quick buck and they don’t always make safety a priority. If you need to find CBD, take a look at the list of providers we have here. Some CBD products have additives or carrier oils that can be dangerous to your doggo. Oils like tea tree, cinnamon, citrus, pennyroyal, pine, sweet birch, wintergreen, and ylang ylang can all be harmful. See rule 1.

 

I do know this: The dog is cute and the video has a happy ending. Enjoy!
