Sorting Fact from Fiction Canine Epilepsy Awareness

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. In the last hundred years there has been wagnificent progress in understanding the biological basis of canine epilepsy, the development of effective antiepileptic drugs (AED) & other modalities of management & the pawvention of seizures. Yet, there continues to be confusion & misunderstanding when it comes to canine epilepsy.

Let’s take a sniff at some of the more common misunderstandings or myths.

Canine epilepsy is not a death sentence.  Most dogs living with epilepsy can live long & happy lives with proper seizure management/control. I have a pawtacular life in which I am a Princess &  the Prettiest of All Pretties ( huMom says so). My life is full of wooftastic dogventures, doglightful gratitude & so much love. This good dog couldn’t ask for more.

Epilepsy is a disorder not a disease. An epilepsy warrior isn’t sick, during an episode something electrical is going wrong in the brain.

Not all seizures are due to epilepsy.  Many other health issues can cause seizures. Blood sugar issues, head injury, electrolyte problems, kidney or liver disease, & eating poison can all cause seizures in good dogs.

Dogspite how your dog’s seizures look to you, seizures are not painful. We dogs will feel confused & may have episodes of panic. It is impawtant to be prepared by creating a safe & quiet (both in sound & light) space.

Finally, dogs do not swallow their tongues during a seizure episode. Although they may bite their tongue or any fingers that get too close.

Sharing information & creating awareness is how we overcome these misunderstandings. That’s why we believe it is dog gone impawtant to support  Wally’s Canine Epilepsy Foundation in their mission to educate, inform & assist good dogs living with canine epilepsy.

Wally’s Canine Epilepsy Foundation also helps save the lives of canine epilepsy warriors every day by assisting those humans who through no fault of their own can not afford the life saving medications for their good dogs. Good dogs who might otherwise would be surrendered or worse, euthanized.

A gift to WCEF gives hope to those epilepsy Warriors & their families who are not only battling the ‘epi monster’ from a health standpoint but also financially.

We’re Not Just Toys Any More

News

Hello everyone, Olivia here, as most of you know I am the Canine Executive Officer (CEO) of Knotty Toys for Good Dogs. When my huMom & I started this business five years ago, our only offering was our wooftastic all natural hemp rope toys.

But we have grown, we now also sell a wide range of supplements for good dogs & cool cats which are made by a pawsome Canadian company called, Omega/Alpha. On top of that we sell Welly Chef all natural base mix. The health & well being of all good dogs & cool cats is impawtant to us.

We are also affiliate partners with both Charlotte’s Web CBD products & CBD Dog Health products. CBD oil is proving to be an effective weapon in the fight against the epilepsy monster.

Speaking of epilepsy, November will be here soon & that means Epilepsy Awareness Month will be here. We will once again be holding an online silent auction to raise money for the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy. It’s our charity of choice. They provide assistance to qualifying families who struggle with the high cost of AED’s (anti epileptic drugs). We share their belief that no one should have to surrender a family member because they can’t afford the medications.

If you haven’t sniffed out my online store in a while please do. Come November, we will be rolling out our silent auction. I hope you pawticipate. Anyone wishing to donate an item(s) can message us here or through our Facebook page, Instagram or email. It’s for a pawtacular cause.

Another CBD Journey Pupdate

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Today I’m feeling wooftastic because it’s day 111 with no seizures. My huMom continues to be very pleased with my prawgress since I began taking my full spectrum CBD oil. I’ve been receiving daily micro doses since July 11th.

This is by far the longest I’ve gone seizure free since before our house fire back in the spring of 2016.

My huMom is happy to say that my focus is pawtastic. My coordination has continued to improve as well. Just the other day I leapt gracefully onto, then over a log I normally would stumble over or would require assistance with.

I’m sleeping well, eating well & huMom says I smell wonderful. We haven’t observed any negative effects of me going on full spectrum CBD oil. I will continue receiving my micro doses daily. My annual blood work will be in December & huMom has decided to wait until then to have a discussion with my vet about the possibility of a reduction in my pharmaceutical AED’s (anti epileptic drugs). That’s a goal I hope to meet.

In the meantime, huMom is constantly studying everything she can find about cannabis & it’s therapeutic & medicinal applications. Especially in regards to defeating the epi monster.
