Can you use CBD oil to treat seizures and epilepsy in dogs? If so how do you give it and what dose of CBD oil should you use?

Here are some high-quality CBD options with independent analysis:
– Oil:
– Hard chews:
– Soft chews:
– Peanut butter:

– Need to try and determine the causes of the seizures – organ disease, infections, poisoning, brain lesions, epilepsy

– When to start treatment if epilepsy – 2 or more seizures in 6 months – certainly more than 1 a month, not recovering between seizures, severe seizure or prolonged recovery
If not epilepsy then need to try and address underlying cause as often don’t respond as well to anti-seizure medication alone

– Need to pick best anti-seizure medication
With some drugs like phenobarbital and imepitoin we know how effective they can be and what to expect with long term administration. With CBD oil research into its use to control seizures is in the early stages, there are currently no published studies detailing how effective it is, although these are starting to be run.

– Why try a drug we don’t know much about or how well it works over other drugs that we know work in a large number of patients?
