• My dog has frequent seizures and I've read up on a lot of medications already. I have come across CBD oil treatment recently and was wondering if this is something that is recommended. What kind of side effects are possible?

    Hi Nina,
    Unfortunately, CBD oil is an unregulated industry so the products may contain things that could do more harm than help. Little research has been done on the effectiveness of CBD in pets. Also, it is currently not within the law to recommend or prescribe CBD for pets.I would work with your veterinarian to determine the best therapy for your dog. There is even a food available now that may help. 

Need more information or advice?
