CBD Oil for Seizures in Dogs

Cannabidiol or CBD oil for seizures first came into use with a little girl named Charlotte Figi. She was suffering severe seizures when she was just three months old. By the time she was five years old, this was up to about 300 seizures a week. And on a CBD regiment, she was able to return to normal life and bring down the incidents to about 2-3 times a month. This journey is extensively covered in a CNN documentary by Sanjay Gupta.

Set Up a CBD Oil Dosing Plan

The cannabis plant where CBD oil is extracted has the same superpower to do the same for dogs. There are two options here on how to manage seizures in your pet. One is a three times daily edible or dog treat infused with CBD. We recommend that this be done in conjunction to an oil or tincture. So, in the event the dog is in an active seizure you can administer the CBD oil for seizures sublingually.

The other option is to go just straight oil or tincture all the time. The issue that we have found with this straight oil method is, most dogs run as soon as they know you will be giving them the ill-tasting tinctures. And picky eaters will just refuse to eat their food even more. For this reason, we suggest it would be a good idea to mix it up. Dog treats infused with CBD oil will be much easier to give, just like giving any other treat. Your pet won’t even notice the difference. And, this can easily be included as a daily maintenance.

Hence, what this means for us pet parents is, less of a struggle and a daily fight with your pet to administer his dose. God only knows we have all been there before! The eating around a pill pocket, the eating all around it, and the running and hiding. With a dog treat infused with the oil, it becomes a pleasurable experience for all involved.

Most importantly stick to your chosen schedule and consistency is key.


According to Ian Miller, MD of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, “convulsive seizures decreased by 46% in children taking 20 mg/kg/day and 49% for children taking 10 mg/kg/day of cannabidiol, compared with 27% for placebo… The children in this study had already tried an average of four epilepsy drugs with no success and at the time were taking an average of three additional drugs, so to have this measure of success with cannabidiol is a major victory,” 1

According to the Journal of Epilepsy Research, “CBD was found to be superior to placebo in reducing the frequency of convulsive (tonic-clonic, tonic, clonic, and atonic) seizures in patients with Dravet syndrome, and the frequency of drop seizures in patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. For the first time, there is now class 1 evidence that adjunctive use of CBD improves seizure control in patients with specific epilepsy syndromes.” 2

How Does CBD Oil for Seizures Work?

All living beings with the exclusion of insects have an endocannabinoid system. This system is a primary regulatory system that keeps our bodies in functional balance. Our bodies naturally produce its own endocannabinoids. And these receptors are like docking stations found throughout our bodies like the brain, nervous system, skin, gastrointestinal system, bones, etc. Thus, it is widespread throughout our bodies. Dogs are no exception. As a result, the CBD’s from the cannabis plant attach to these receptors found throughout the body to bring them into balance.

An animal recovering from a torn ACL, or other surgery can benefit from a CBD treatment. Since it is known to help promote a restful sleep and decreased stress. Or better mobility from CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties and pain management for arthritis in dogs. The benefits of CBD are far and wide.

Did you know there are more than 100+ beneficial cannabinoids in the cannabis plant? They all have a different function that aids in different aspects of bringing all living beings into homeostasis.

CBD Oil Benefits

Listed above is a CBD oil benefits list of the major cannabinoids that will help explain the benefits to any living thing with an endocannabinoid system.

Fun fact 1: All animals with the exception of insects have some form of internal cannabinoid system.

What’s an ECS system?

What is an endocannabinoid system (ECS)? It is a network of receptors that exist in the body that was discovered in the 90’s by researchers. CBD oil effects include regulating mood, appetite, pain, stress, inflammation and anxiety among other things. The ECS manages complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs.

Dogs just like us have similar ECS systems like humans and this is why pharmaceutical companies often use them as test subjects. This handy guide will help explain what CBD can do for your beloved pet. Keep in mind that the THC components in this guide are controversial for animal use.

THC vs Hemp

There will be two types of product that can fall under the THC classification. For our peanut butter dog treats recipe, we use an industrial hemp derived CBD oil. This is where the THC or psychoactive content is .03% or less per dry weight. In short, it is high in CBD but with trace amounts of THC. This does not cause any psychoactive effects on the animal. This type of oil is also known as a full spectrum oil. It has all the benefits of the whole plant known as the “Entourage Effect”, minus the high. For the most part our tests register around half of the .03% threshold.

The second type of product you can buy that is .03% greater in THC, will be found in dispensaries. You cannot purchase this type of product online or in stores other than licensed dispensaries. We caution this usage and highly recommend veterinary advice when treating an animal where there are intoxicating effects involved. We would cautiously recommend this, except for animals that are perhaps at the end of life care, and comfort is the main goal. Again, consult your vet.

Fun fact 2: Did you know pigs have the most similar endocannabinoid system to humans?

What are cannabinoids?

What are cannabinoids or CBD’s? First, this is one word that will always be part of anyone who wishes to learn more about any form of cannabis usage. Secondly, they are chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that interact with the ECS system that puts a physical body in homeostasis or in balance.

At present, science has discovered that there are about 113 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. We have covered the major CBD oil benefits list for the major cannabinoids.

  8. Place cookies on parchment lined sheet pans and bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
  9. Once cookies have fully cooled, store in an airtight container. You can also store this in the fridge for a longer shelf life.

Dog Treat Recipes with CBD Oil

This dog treat recipes with CBD oil is not only all-natural, but healthy for your pup and with no artificial flavors, fillings or anything you and I don’t eat on a regular basis. The best part about this pumpkin dog treats recipe is that it not only is it a great way on how to treat a limping dog at home, but for when you cry out, “My dog’s breath stinks!”

Old age also is a large contributing factor to the bad breath of our dogs. Simply put, because we don’t brush our dog’s teeth everyday like we do. Nor do they gargle with mouthwash or floss daily. So, all these preventative human measure for clean oral hygiene is just not done on a daily basis for our pets. Our only recourse is to implement as many bad breath preventative measures that we can for the life of our pets.

This dog treat recipes is perfect for that dog won’t eat his food but will eat treat, and gives him the double functional aspect of helping them with the benefits of CBD and for his bad breath!

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog?

We recommend a starting point of 1-2 mg of CBD per ten pounds of dog. This depends heavily on his age, size and overall condition and the purpose that you are using it for. Unfortunately, there is no magic number set in stone number that works for everyone at all times. It will be a journey of trail and error, but our guidelines are a good place to start.

For instance, you have a 10-12 pound Shitzu who is 14 years old with terrible arthritis but no other issues. You may want to give him 1 treat per serving, three times a day to start, for about a week because you need to build up the levels in his system. You start to notice a positive change in his behavior since his pain levels have gone down. So now, you can then give him a treat twice a day and continue monitoring his behavior.

We suggest not less than a twice a day, and up to four times a day for the number of dosing sessions, so your pet can reap the healing benefit of the CBD oil and manage his pain levels.

If you went on a hike or long walk the day before and notice he is a bit achy like us humans can be at times, then give him an extra dose. It is important to constantly monitor your pet’s behavior because you know him best.

Eventually, you will figure out his sweet spot for how much and when he needs it. Best of all, when you make CBD dog treat recipes at home, you have full control of the dog treat recipes.

You will need the following tools:

Digital scale that measures in grams

1-5 ml Plastic Syringes – ask your vet or pharmacist for free or purchase online



Rolling Pin

Cookie Cutter

Baking Tray

Parchment Paper

Breath of Fresh Air – 2 milligram of CBD per treat Makes approx. 50 pieces

18 g of Mint Leaves – Fresh

*to increase the milligram of CBD to 4 mg per treat, add 12 ml of oil, OR make sure to use a cookie cutter that will cut a 12-13 g dog treat and so forth.


  1. Add all wet ingredients to the mixing bowl with the paddle attachment. Combine.
  2. Switch to the dough hook attachment and add the flour.
  3. Mix until all the ingredients come together.
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for 2 hours, overnight is better.

COVID-19 and Your Pets

With the rapidly evolving and dynamic situation concerning COVID-19 and your pets, we want to re-iterate everyone’s safety, including your pets. At present with certain large cities like San Francisco, New York , Miami, and now Las Vegas, putting a lock down on bars, restaurants, theaters, and other large gathering activities, one of the safest things you can do for your family is to practice safe social isolation.  This invisible tsunami is about to overwhelm us from coast to coast. The case of an immediate one month nationwide quarantine has become clear. Here’s how to keep COVID-19 and your pets safe.

How to Prepare for COVID-19 and Your Pets

Try ordering all supplies through the internet and avoid going out of your house and congregating with others if at all possible. Another alternative is, order online from the grocery app. These pick-up services can help avoid the masses and close quarters. The health of your family depends on it–and your pets depend on you. As you gather supplies at local stores, do not forget your pets needs as well. For the older pets, just like yourself, ensure that they have all the medication, food, dog treats they need for the amount of supplies you have gathered for you and your family. Remember pets are family too. They are voiceless and count on you just as much as your family does you. We cannot stress this enough.

Thankfully for now, the post offices, parcel delivery services are still functioning for online orders, so we at Bark Avenue CBD can still do uninterrupted service directly to your home. Keep in mind some of us that use fulfillment centers to fill orders online, and there is the possibility of workers falling ill to this virus as well as others. Disruption is great a possibility throughout the supply chain. Plan for it. But as of now, this is not an issue.

If You Have to Go Out For Your Pet Supplies

However, if you have to go to the big box chains for your pet supplies, grab the same bag of dog food that you always feed them as a first choice. What to do if they are out of your brand, and you have to substitute another brand?  Make sure to slowly incorporate the new brand into the old, until you have switched to the new completely over a seven to ten-day period. And make sure that you have enough of this new brand to weather the COVID-19 storm. Don’t forget your mask and gloves, and you will want to wipe down the bag in your garage or outside your home to prevent bringing in the virus inside your home.

The Silver Lining For Your Pets

Despite all the gloom and doom, here are some fun, pick-me-up-low-risk-activities for COVID-19:

  • Walking your dog
  • Playing with your dog
  • Staring at your dog
  • Rubbing his belly
  • Telling him he’s a “good boy”
  • Feeding your dog treats
  • The Best: Taking a nap with your dog

Lastly, there have been rumors of a case where a dog tested for a weak positive of the coronavirus. This has been debunked. Since you and your pet cannot pass the coronavirus onto each other, then go ahead and give your pet as many kisses as you want! Now is the time to make it up to him for all the days that you have had to leave for work seeing that face as you walk out the door.

Therefore the clear winners in all of this is, our pets! Their gratitude and happiness for something that they are clueless about, is a huge boon for them. At present while we are all in this together, don’t let this silver lining in a dark cloud go to waste.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog

Several people these days have found that cannabidiol, abbreviated as CBD holds impressive potential for their health. The popularity of CBD can be estimated from the fact that the consumer sales of CBD are expected to reach around 1.8 billion U.S. dollars by 2022. But, is it beneficial for our canine friends too? How much CBD oil should I give my dog? Well, some recent researches definitely suggest so. Many dogs with mammary tumors, heart murmurs and arthritis have been successfully managed with the help of CBD oil.

The CBD market is booming and today, it is available in the form of topical-sprays, oral sprays and even dog treats. While you may want to try it immediately with your furry friend, it’s important to know the right way of giving it. Here’s what you should know, if you are giving CBD oil to your dog for the first time.

What is CBD?

Before you start to look into CBD for your dog/dogs, it is important to understand what it is and from where it is derived.

CBD or Cannabidiol is a Cannabinoid or Cannabis compound derived from cannabis plant. It is emerging as a promising therapy with significant health benefits.  While, humans have been using CBD for quite some time now, pet owners are a little wary of giving it to their dogs or Flemish Giant rabbits. But, some researches confirm that the absence of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) makes pure CBD safe for even pets to consume. Knowing how much CBD oil to give my dog, along with understanding your pet is the key to successful results.

Is CBD oil addictive?

Marijuana contains THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which leads to a type of euphoric or hazy mindset when ingested or smoked. Cannabis plant on the other hand contains only insignificant traces of THC. Also, in medicinal CBD, THC is fully removed, which makes pure CBD absolutely safe and non-addictive. So, based on its chemistry, it can be said that the CBD oil is not addictive. 100% pure cannabidiol does not produce any physical withdrawal symptoms; hence it is not physically addictive.

How does CBD oil work?

Endocannabinoid system, which is an interconnected chain of receptors, is found in the nervous system, brain, glands and other organs. This endocannabinoid system acts as body’s command centre for health and healing. All mammals, including – humans and dogs rely on endocannabinoid system to regulate the body’s immune response. CBD oil works by interacting with these receptors to act as a neuroprotective agent. It also helps regulate body’s immune response to promote good health and healing.

How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog?

This will largely depend on the age, condition and weight of your pet. Most importantly, you understanding your pet best. For instance, seniors that are showing signs of arthritis in dogs, but otherwise is in good health. We suggest to start with 1-2 mg of CBD per 10 pounds of dog, three times daily for a week. This begins to build up the levels in their system. If you notice he is feeling better, then you can give him a twice daily dosing session. If he is not doing as well as before, then you can go back to a three times daily routine. It is all a trial and error. This is why knowing your pet best is the key to finding the sweet spot for your pet.

As more and more researches have come out in favor of CBD, the veterinarians have finally agreed on some of the most basic uses of CBD oil. Even the FDA has approved a drug derived from CBD recently.

For pets, CBD is available in the form of pills, in liquid form as well infused in treats. While, treats infused with CBD may sound completely harmless, it is still good to consider the recommended dosages and recognize the possible side effects associated with CBD. Side effects associated with CBD are very rare but they still have been reported. Some warning signs include – disorientation, vomiting, drowsiness or excitement after ingesting CBD. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is always good to consult your trusted vet.

Consult your vet

Even if you live in one of those areas where CBD is legal, it is always a good idea to consult your vet before administering it to your pet. While your vet won’t himself suggest it, he/she would definitely be happy to answer all your doubts and queries related to it. A holistic vet can also help you find answer to your queries.

Things to keep in mind when buying CBD

Although 100% pure CBD oil is said to be absolutely safe for pets, you should always be careful when buying CBD. Make sure the company you are buying CBD from is able to provide Certificate of Analysis, or COA. This way you will have peace of mind that the CBD product you are using is free of THC and contaminants, such as – heavy metals and fungicides. If a company refuses to provide you Certificate of Analysis, it should be seen as a red flag.

Which conditions can CBD oil be beneficial for?

CBD oil can be helpful in a multitude of health conditions in dogs, like:

  • CBD can help the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
  • help the symptoms of Seizures and Epilepsy.
  • CBD can help ease the pain and signs of arthritis in dogs
  • CBD is used to alleviate nausea.
  • used to aid comfort for dogs with cancer. According to some recent studies, CBD stops the growth of cancer cells.
  • CBD can be used to mitigate hot spots and other skin and coat conditions.
  • CBD is used to calm gastrointestinal issues

Although, CBD oil is beneficial in many health conditions, it’s important to remember that CBD oil isn’t a cure for the health conditions, it just alleviates their symptoms.

Wrap Up

Nothing can be more disheartening than seeing our furry friend not enjoying their life to the fullest. Sometimes, despite trying our best, they will still struggle with their health issues. Fortunately, CBD can help your pets through those issues, giving them the happy life they deserve. So, talk to your holistic vet today about the benefits of CBD oil for your pet and give your pet the happy and healthy life he/she deserves.

Tame Your Dog Fireworks Anxiety

You will want to tame your dog fireworks anxiety with 4th of July around the corner. Many of our furry friends do not see the excitement and grandeur of fireworks the way we see it.  Instead, they cower in fear and imagine Armageddon happening all round us. It is totally natural for dogs to be afraid of loud noises. It triggers the nervous system with a flight mode which causes a lot of stress and anxiety. We as pet parents do not like to see our pets suffer in this state of anxiety. We often ask ourselves how we can help our pets and what to give your dog for fireworks anxiety.

These top 4 tips should help ease some of the dog fireworks anxiety.

Provide a Safe Spot

Whether it’s their crate, under your bed, in a closet, under your home office desk, it’s good idea for your pet to have a place where they feel safe relaxing or hiding. Dogs are hibernating animals by nature. So it should be a natural place for them to be at ease and be able to seek refuge. Keep in mind, if they are not used to a crate or a spot that causes them more anxiety, this should be avoided.

Ambient White Noise

Playing classical music or other calming “white noise” will work to drown out the sounds of the fireworks. And playing the music loud enough to effectively drown the noise out.

An Alternative Temporary Living Arrangement

Another option: take them to a friend or relative’s home that your pet is familiar with, that won’t have these loud fireworks displays. Don’t forget to give them something your dog is used to having at home like his bed or favorite toys.

Giving an Edible All Natural Calming Cannabis Dog Treats (CBD Dog Treats)

There is an all natural way to minimize this is with CBD dog treats for fireworks anxiety. CBD is a compound in the cannabis plant that can help with a host of symptoms such as:

  • Seizures/ Epilepsy
  • Inflammation
  • GI Problems
  • Anxiety/ Stress
  • Pain
  • Limping
  • End of Life Care
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer

Solving Problems Naturally: CBD Healthy Pet Products

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil-based supplements and treats for both cats and dogs continue to grow in popularity.  More pet owners begin to recognize their potential benefits. Despite the fact that it’s still a relatively new category, there already are a lot of options. Shoppers might need quite a bit of assistance in choosing what’s best for their pet.

“At SuperZoo in 2016, there were only a few booths exhibiting CBD products,” Grow said. “In 2017, it was a flood of new CBD exhibitors. And I expect even more next year.”

Chelsea Joyce said the interest in CBD products comes at a time when pet owners and retailers recognize that pharmaceutical drugs can sometimes be harmful. Or even make a pet’s health issue worse due to side effects. As medical cannabis has become increasingly acceptable, people are beginning to understand it might also be a positive option for their pets, she said.

“Consumers are seeking out transparency and education in CBD products—just like they want with the rest of the healthy pet products they purchase from the independent retailer,” Joyce said. “Unfortunately, there have been no regulations set up within the CBD world. In order to keep customers and retailers properly informed, it is up to the manufacturer to educate them on the difference between the products that are out there.”

More Insider Insight

“The driving trend is the fact that pet parents want natural solutions for their pets,” Strong said. “They’re doing their best to get away from prescription drugs when they can solve a problem more naturally.”

CBD healthy pet products are becoming more popular for treating human health needs, and the trend is trickling down to pets.

“As more and more people are either reading about the benefits of CBD for pets or using it themselves. They are interested in providing the same relief to their pets,” said Jodi Ziskin, communications director for Treatibles in Oakland, Calif.


There’s no question that education is incredibly valuable in the cannabidiol (CBD) category. Heidi Nevala, president of Petabis Organics, said that not all CBD is created equal. It is important to understand the differences.

“Ask for documentation regarding your supplier’s cultivation, harvest and extraction process,” Nevala said. “As a reseller partner, your supplier should happily supply this type of information in detail. Most CBD products on the market are isolates.

There are a lot of false claims and products out there that are not what shoppers think they are, said Denise Strong, co-owner of Pawz on Main in Cottonwood, Ariz. It can make the shopping experience for customers overwhelming.

“Because it’s still so new, and there’s a lot of misinformation out there. People buy products that are knock-offs without even realizing it,” Strong said. “I had one customer that spent over $100 on a bottle of hemp oil, and it turned out that 85 percent of the bottle was olive oil. The problem is that people don’t have the time to do all the research to understand what they’re buying.”

Retailer Education

“Honesty and transparency are the most important things in this category as they discuss CBD products with their customers. — Chelsea Joyce, vice president of sales for Pet Releaf in Englewood, Colo. “CBD and hemp products are possibly, the least understood and most widely misrepresented products in the pet industry. It is imperative that a manufacturer is able to prove where their hemp is coming from. Prove with certifications if they are claiming organic and prove whether they are using true hemp strains or marijuana hybrids. Retailers need to educate themselves as much as possible so that they fully understand that CBD products are vastly different in safety and efficacy.”

Aquila Brown, president of The Yuppy Puppy in Spokane, Wash., noted that ensuring staff members are well educated is important.

“We do lengthy training with our staff so they understand what CBD products are. What they can be used for and what they can’t be used for. And how they’re different from human products, and how to approach customers about it,” Brown said.



There are a lot of ways marketing campaigns can be used to draw attention to CBD healthy pet products. Marketing efforts also pose an additional opportunity to educate the public.

Blogging is always a great outlet to get people interested in CBD products, said Jennifer A. Chiongbian, owner of Denver-based Bark Avenue. Bark Avenue. She also has a video tutorial on YouTube that teaches How to Make Dog Treats with CBD Oil and How to Buy CBD Oil. The more you can educate the public, the better, she said.

Taste-testing is a great way to get pet owners excited, said Heidi Nevala, president and founder of Petabis Organics in Minneapolis.

“Pet parents are often worried that their pet will not like the taste,” she said. “We sample our CBD snacks heavily.  Our Calming Support Snack is a direct way to measure the stress-relieving effects on their dog.  When their dog also loves the taste, the pet parent’s confidence soars.”

Denise Strong, co-owner of Pawz on Main in Cottonwood, Ariz., said she hosted a Lunch & Learn on the ABCs of CBD. And that it was incredibly popular. She ran an ad in her local paper, handed out fliers and targeted her email base. The result was a huge turnout and a lot of customers asked when the store will do it again, Strong said.
