Can CBD help with Idiopathic Epilepsy?

How Hemp Oil Can Help

While these types of seizures are rarely a deadly condition in dogs, they can be a distracting and difficult period. For example, they may cause the dog to lash out at their owners and bite them unexpectedly. Even worse, it can increase a dog's anxiety level and make their life worse.

However, medical specialists have found that a healthy dose of Hemp oil for dogs can help decrease their level of anxiety and may alleviate some symptoms of seizures. Giving a small amount of phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp oil to your pet during the pre-seizure period may help them get through their seizure more easily.

What Is The Most Common Cause Of Seizures?

Idiopathic epilepsy is the most common reason that dogs suffer from seizures. This disease changes the way that their brain functions and will cause it to occasionally misfire. When this happens, electrical currents temporarily flare up in your dog's brain and make it impossible for them to control themselves.

The actual seizure is preceded by a period of confusion and agitation in which your buddy will feel like something is about to happen. During the seizure, they may collapse, twitch, snarl, bite, whine, urinate, excrete, and even lash out at invisible hallucinations. This problem should pass in about five minutes.
