Hello. Whenever I read the threads on this site I feel like I've chosen the right site to learn. I have studied on CBD not much in detailed but brief, for my dog's treatment. My dog had been going through some anxiety issues and he use to get seizures so I started giving alternates treatment because I was not sure about CBD treatment and thought it could get my pet high or would compromise his health more. I consulted many people on different forums and some of them shared their stories. So I decided to use CBD for its treatment. It's been 4 months, my dog is in better health, all active and back to life. One mistake I did was I overdosed on it. So If you give your pet too much CBD, you may notice that it makes them tired where a lower dose may have given them a boost in their step. Some pet owners purposely give their pets high doses of CBD to help with insomnia. Common side effects such as nausea or diarrhea may happen, but they are fairly rare and mild. So nothing much to worry about. Now when I have skipped giving CBD, my dog is having same old but mild seizures and I'm a bit worried, is this because of withdrawal symptoms? Or something else?

There is (or should be) none of the compound that gives the "high", in CBD oil. Did you consult with your vet about the CBD oil before giving it?

The other thing to keep in mind is that, unlike with humans, the compound in marijuana that DOES cause a 'high' (THC) can be toxic to dogs. Currently there's little to no regulation in the production of CBD oil, which means some CBD oil isn't 'pure' and can be contaminated with THC or other compounds that cause toxicity or issues in our pets. Be very, very picky about which companies you source your CBD oil from for this reason, and choose only those that produce high quality, highly rated, and appropriately purified products. And only AFTER approval by a vet, so you can avoid any issues with it interacting with other medications, etc.

And only a vet can answer questions about the seizures, I'm afraid.

Agreed. There should be none, or VERY little THC in CBD for pets.
I have had great results with if for a variety of issues.
One dog gets it for anxiety.
One dog gets it for firework and thunderstorms. (4th of July is now almost pleasant)
And one dog gets it for arthritis.
