I was told recently of a holistic vet that has advised the use of cannabis oil for treating seizures in dogs. I have heard of cannabis oil being used in various conditions, such as chronic pain, arthritis, cancer pain ... but not for seizures. I have read up on this and although it seems there are potential advantages to it, there are also a lot of negatives too. It does seem to work for some dogs (controlling muscle tremors at least), but can also make the condition worse in others. There are also innumerable side-effects, which some dogs get and others don't. I wonder if anyone has used it under veterinary supervision on their own dogs - and perhaps can let me know whether it helped or not.
My article on seizures in dogs has now been updated with a section on the use of cannabis oil for muscle tremors. Any additional info from owners that have used this on their dogs will be greatly appreciated. My article can be found at the following link:
