I get weekly calls from humans hoping to treat their animal friend’s seizures and epilepsy. This can be due to genetics but lately more and more calls are coming from in from animals who were taking oral heartworm and/or flea meds!

Did you know the FDA issued a warning about four chewable flea and tick medications, cautioning that the products could lead to neurological issues such as seizures. The brands are isoxazoline based Bravecto, Credelio, Nexgard or Simparica.

There can be serious side effects resulting from the use of conventional anticonvulsants- like phenobarbital- that many dogs are prescribed to control seizures. These can include nausea, headaches, loss of hair, swelling of gum tissue, depression, poor coordination (ataxia), liver failure, depressed blood counts, sedation, unsteadiness, double vision, weight gain, hyperactivity, sleep disturbances, irritability, gum dysplasia, hirsutism (excessive growth of hair) and changes in mood.

The Gift

A 2013 study published by the British Journal of Pharmacology found that Cannabinoid based medicine can stop seizures due to its “significant anticonvulsant effects.” Using the substance on a number of animal models such as rats and mice, they found that the extract was able to effectively stop seizures. Researchers noted, “Here, for the first time, we demonstrate that cannabis extracts rich in CBDV and CBD can exert significant anticonvulsant effects…

The American Epilepsy Society published a study confirming that CBD oil is effective in treating seizures stating that CBD reduces the frequency of these seizures by 45%. 

Considering how devastating seizures can be for both the animal and their human family, this kind of success rate makes CBD a true GIFT to our planet.

Read Bella’s Success story below:

“Bella is an 11 year old puggle who started having seizures as a puppy then she had more seizures as she got older- one even lasted 30 min!  The vet ran test couldn’t find any cause for her seizures. HE recommended the typical seizure meds- Phenobarbital or Potassium Bromide.. I had a boxer that also had a seizure disorder and we used these drugs on him and he lost the ability to use his hind legs which the vet explained was a side effect of Potassium Bromide, because of this I elected to steer clear of these drugs.  We tried many different CBD pet brands, Bella had seizures on all of them. But then, in May, I found Cannimal and ordered Bella’s first bottle, and she has not had a seizure since!”

RELAX FORMULA

$55

Whether you are treating seizures, acute anxiety or chronic separation anxiety, Cannimal’s RELAX Formula is a unique formula unlike anything else… First, it combines the power of Full Spectrum CBD with the calming qualities of Passionflower and its ability to elicit GABA currents in the brain.

🐾

GABA has an inhibitory effect on the brain, accounting for Passionflower’s anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) AND anticonvulsant (anti-seizure) properties. Studies show Passionflower has a similar effect as diazepam (Valium) without the pharmaceutical side effects.
