Epilepsy is a frustrating disease. The current treatment options have a host of side effects. And so If Your dog is epileptic, you might be just a little concerned since many of the treatments just don’t work for many dogs.
However there are many common conditions where there is a whole array of alternative medications and treatments. Many of those treatments are now backed by science.
I have been working very closely with Dr. Andrew Jones lately. I am trying to learn many things that he teaches in his home courses. If your dog is epileptic, you are really in the right place today. As you know, he is a holistic veterinarian but he started out as a boy on a farm, caring for all of their farm animals. This is where he established his love for animals. When he got older, he went off to vet school, and became one of the best vets in his home country, Canada.
I reviewed Dr. Jones online first and it appears that this is one particular vet who has done a review of Dr. Jones. But it sounds to me as if this vet is a little more jealous of what Dr. Jones has accomplished because of his love for animals.
If you are just starting with natural holistic healing, then my first suggestion to you (anyone who is just starting and wants to learn how to treat their pets at home):? And if your dog is epileptic, you can help your dog just by reading the following information.
You need to get your hands on “The Veterinary Secrets Revealed Getting Started Kit” completely compiled by Dr. Jones. This is a beginning course on how to start treating your pets at home. This package includes a course guide, with 3 introductory videos (a total of 3 hours of instruction), and 4 e-Books on the most important at-home healing modalities that you will find. And check out the price; Regular Price: CA$23.96 Special Price CA$8.36 You cannot go wrong at that price! I’m pretty sure that the CA means Canadian money; it might be a bit less here in the U.S.
CBD and Epilepsy
Currently in our reality world out there, CBD oil (the natural extract from a cannabis plant) is being used very successfully by thousands of people who have epilepsy. Now it is also a treatment for thousands of dogs.
CBD oil is the same as the many essential oils out there (plain and simple; it’s a plant oil extract), and it is NON psychoactive because it contains NO THC (the THC is what gets people ‘loaded’, ‘stoned’, ‘high’ whatever you want to call it..) People get funny ideas because when they hear the words “pot” or “marijuana” as in “oh, I don’t want to get my dog loaded”. Believe me, if your dog is epileptic, this is exactly what the oil treats and it has nothing to do with getting anyone loaded, including your dog.
Cannabidiol or CBD
CBD has an important role in the future of medicine. CBD is a primary component of the cannabis plant. It is non-psychoactive, which means that it doesn’t produce the “high” commonly associated with marijuana.
CBD is currently used by many patients (human and animal) who seek an alternative form of therapy without the unwanted side effects of many medications.
“There is compelling research that shows CBD may inhibit both seizure activity and the severity of such activity. Study results have “point[ed] to CBD being of potential therapeutic use…in the treatment of epilepsies. Studies also indicate that the use of CBD in conjunction with certain anti-seizure medications may enhance the anticonvulsant effects of those drugs. Furthermore, studies indicate chronic use of CBD has not been shown to elicit negative side effects and does not induce tolerance.” **Dr. Andrew Jones
Colorado State is currently studying the use of CBD in dogs for epilepsy, and looking for dog owners to enroll in their trial.
Here is more info on the trial if you are interested in getting treatment for your dog free of charge, if your dog is epileptic.
Efficacy of Cannabidiol for the Treatment of Epilepsy in Dogs
Dogs with epilepsy that are receiving conventional anticonvulsants and having at least two seizures per month. Upon enrollment, every dog will be evaluated by a neurologist and any medication adjustments will be made prior to starting the trial.
Purpose of the Study
The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of a component of the Cannabis sativa plant, cannabidiol (CBD), in treating canine epilepsy. The CBD product is very low in the psychoactive component of cannabis, THC, making it safe for use in dogs. Each dog will be randomly assigned to either a control group or a treatment group, where they will receive the CBD oil or a placebo for 12 weeks.
What is Required?
An MRI of the brain and a spinal tap to rule out any other causes of seizures
A daily seizure log and behavioral questionnaire filled out by a single owner
Reassessment and bloodwork every 4 weeks
All costs related to the study will be covered in full, including the examinations, MRI, spinal tap, blood work and the CBD oil.
Interested participants can learn more by contacting one of our research technicians by emailing CSUNeuroTrials@colostate.edu or Dr. Stephanie McGrath, or by calling (970) 305-0455.
Thanks for coming by to read our post today and I’m hoping that for $8.36 you will stop right now and order the kit, that teaches you how to care for and cure your dog’s ailments. Especially if your dog is epileptic!
Right now, I am kind of scared that my girl might be sick. I just read a headline that said: “Will Your Dog Die an Early Death?” and it got me to thinking about my best friend. She is lethargic and wants to sleep all of the time. She is eating though, and she is always anxious to go for a walk. When I ask her to go for a walk, she is up and running for the door. Other than that, she wants to just lie around and sleep. Treats used to make her happy, but not lately. She doesn’t act like she hurts anywhere; I poked and prodded until she got up and moved away from me. It has been extremely warm here this week; in the 90’s and so it may just be that it is too hot for her?
Last night as I sat looking at her, I wondered what kinds of thoughts our dogs have? Do you ever think about your pets this way? When they feel pain or their tummy gets upset; how do they think about it? Do they have thoughts like a human? I know that no one really has an answer to these questions but it made me kind of sad that our animals are at the mercy of every human they come into contact with.
We have to guess what is ailing them, are they happy, are they sad, excited, or mad at the world? What they have been through in their lifetime; if we don’t know them very well? I got myself upset from something I read earlier and it was making me think crazily; will your dog die early in life? I think I opened a can of worms? Yes, I think I did.
Before I go on, I do not know most of these dogs that I used pictures of, like the one just above with the heart blanket! I found them in Google Images and just thought that some of them were so adorable, and I wanted other people to enjoy them as well. Something to smile about for the day, anyway. “Night Night Lover Boy” is so cute. He looks like a Great Dane and even though that blanket is a nice added touch, it just doesn’t do him justice!
I received a phone call from our brick and mortar vet today, wanting to know how my dog is doing days? The vet told me it was time for her to have a rabies vaccine to get updated for licensing laws. I do remember reading something that Dr. Jones mentioned in his book about giving our dogs so many vaccines, but now I have to go and reread it in his FREE ebook; Veterinary Secrets Revealed. So many vaccines are believed to be unneeded and in fact bad for our pets. He also has a complete package that I listed below for sale; the value is unprecedented.
No one is forcing me to get my dog a rabies vaccine, especially if she doesn’t need it. She doesn’t go anywhere that demands a rabies vaccine. She is not going to get rabies at my home or outside walking with me on the leash. I don’t take her to a doggy daycare facility or to have her bathed away from home. I do all of that myself. If I were to take her to some of these places, she would be required to have the rabies vaccine and would receive her license to prove that she had.
I don’t think that most of these vaccines are a necessity because my dog never comes into contact with other pets when I am out walking her; she can’t get rabies like that. She is definitely not going to contract kennel cough or lyme disease out there walking around with me either.
All of these thoughts put me into a panic mode though, so I decided it was time to speak to my online vet about the hype around the vaccine issues and any other medical maladies we might be facing. I read that article again; it was disturbing in a way. “Will your dog die an early death?” The thought of my old girl dying can make me cry, real tears, in a matter of seconds.
I sent Dr. Jones an email with a few questions; asking what his thoughts were about vaccines? He sent me a pretty extensive email back; I received it this morning. Dr. Jones lives in Canada; he gave up his brick and mortar veterinary business to go online and help people and their pets all over the world with their questions and concerns about everything and anything animal or pet. He is great about answering my email; he actually has a team that will help you anytime.
His thoughts on vaccines are pretty much on the same plane as mine are. This is one of the reasons he became a homeopathic vet and wrote the books about home remedies. Reasons for good nutrition, not just good kibble, but a good raw food diet as well. You can find some of this in the free ebook as well. There are links all over this page for that free ebook; use one right now and get a copy of that ebook; it is invaluable.
Make sure that you download his FREE ebook called Veterinary Secrets Revealed right here. It has so much jam packed information into this one FREE ebook about anything to do with your pets. If you don’t find an answer, simply send his team an email with your questions. Remember that he is a veterinarian, he went to vet med school; gaining the title of DVM or Doctor; whichever you prefer.
After his own dog perished, Dr. Jones became increasingly aware that veterinary medicine might be the culprit of many early deaths that we have seen. Here, on the right is a picture of our beloved Kona who passed away when he was only eight years old. He had cancer! Dogs don’t just contract cancer at eight years of age for no apparent reason. I have to believe that all of those evil vaccines had something to do with this.
Dr. Jones also wondered if he, with the help of some of his medical and pharmaceutical training from vet school, had actually helped him to end his own dog’s life? That is an awful lot of guilt to harbor, trying to find a reason for such an early death. But it was his only answer. Something went wrong with his dogs’ health early in life, but he believed that the reasoning behind this had everything to do with all of the “needed vaccines” and the “healthy dog food” that he had been giving his dog. Being a vet, he made sure that his dog was eating the best of the best dog food and that all of his shots were up to date. He truly believes that this was a major factor in the early demise of his best friend.
The truth is that the vaccines are not good for our dogs; and the best of the best food at the pet store is most likely marginally healthy. Doc became increasingly aware, that as vets who were sworn to uphold the principles and ideals that they were taught in med school; they might be uneducated about some of the real evils that medications can play.
He also got sick and tired of the pharmaceutical companies rhetorical pitching and constant pushing of new drugs for containment of new diseases that were still old diseases with a new twist. Veterinarians are, and have been for a long time now, treating perfectly healthy animals with vaccines that are unnecessary, only to watch the animal become ill later in life, but far too early in life for death.
These are the vaccines that we are forced to give our dogs to keep them healthy and from getting such things as rabies, etc. There are far too many pets losing their lives earlier than necessary; he is convinced that not only medicines, but the food and diet industry were big factors as well.
Dr. Jones not only forfeited his highly paid for education, and the career he had worked so hard for; he also signed himself on for furthering his education on his own terms and time in order that he might more fervently serve those pets and their owners who were in need of someone in the medical field that was willing to advocate for them against modern medications, poorly planned diets, and prehistoric thinking. He was convinced that many pharmaceuticals were having negative effects on the longevity of our pets’ lives and he was going to prove it.
ON TOP OF ALL OF THAT;
The constant, and increasing, cost of veterinary care is preventing more and more pet and animal owners from getting regular exams for their beloved pets and even farm animals.
This is not a good thing! When I take my dog to the vet, it always costs me at least the office call which is $80. If they trim her nails, they charge me another $15. Then she needs the right kind of flea drops, another $150 for 8 months. Ear drops were $46 and a prescription for arthritis pain was well over $50 for 30 days. I had no choice but to find a better way.
If you have the tools necessary, you can at least learn HOW to do some of the needed veterinary care yourself; helping to keep your pets healthy. For starters, YOU can begin with Dr Jones’ “Complete Holistic Dog Healing Package“. There is a DVD included in the Package called “Healing Your Pets At Home“. It is part of the package or you can sign up to have a hard copy of it sent right to your front door. The cost for the HOLISTIC PACKAGE is minimal compared to one visit with your brick and mortar VET who is probably going to do much less for you and your pet; they simply do not have the time to spend with you that you need. Tops, you might get about ten minutes with them.
It is very important for you to further your own education about your pets. By going through this very detailed, user friendly, and extensive home course; you will know as much, if not more than your brick and mortar vet (well almost)! You will become empowered to do much of your own veterinary care and you will be able to give the brick and mortar vet vital information when the time presents itself. You will also know what kinds of questions to ask at your next visit to see the vet. Now that you are educated, your Vet will notice; which will in turn have them speaking to you in an educated manner!
