The Unending, Ever Evolving Fight With Canine Epilepsy

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Today I’m recovering from a long battle with the epi monster. I had gone 149 days without a seizure.  Being armed with knowledge, experience & a protocol we were able to get through this rough fight with epilepsy.

However, huMom feels she ignored warning signs. I had gone so long without a visit from the monster that we had let our guard down. For example, there was a big weather shift which is often a trigger. I was more reactive than normal & lunged at an ATV as it drove by. I also barked at SAM like I didn’t know him when he came down the driveway. But the biggest warning signal was me showing huMom my belly which in normal dogs is cute but with me it’s a red flag.

Lessons learned. You can never let your guard down. Not with canine epilepsy. Don’t ignore the warning signs even if that means you need to create a sign or post-it that you can frequently see to remind you during those seizure free days; do it. I know huMom will.

Before starting our CBD journey huMom did extensive research.  Part of that research discussed micro-dosing.  We felt micro-dosing was the best approach for me.  Next week I will dig deeper into the subject of micro-dosing but for now what I can tell you is that I started with 2 drops of CBD tincture on each inner ear flap (hairless).  It seemed to work; for 149 days. Then it did not. Which means we need to increase the dose. So, instead of 2 drops on each ear flap every 24 hours, I am now receiving 2 drops in each ear flap every 12 hours.

HuMom & I would like to thank everyone for the support, pawsitive energy, prayers, love & kind words. When we stand together, we stand strong! 💜 nose nudges 💜
