pet cbd

Every day more and more people, as well as pets, are finding incredible help with their medical conditions with CBD oil, and it’s a beautiful thing to see it helping so many. And because of this, we are seeing more and more ways to take CBD from oils to vaping to edibles. With CBD helping so many people in different situations, being able to administer CBD either on the go, or nice and slow, is a godsend for many.

CBD Oil

Let’s start with CBD oil itself since it’s the most malleable form (can be used in capsules, edibles, etc.) and it’s the most popular being the original. I personally advise CBD oil that’s taken sublingually as the best route to go for beginners. Capsules are pretty easy as well, but will the oil and a dropper, you can easily mess around with your dose by making small incremental changes. With the oil, you can dose 1mg or 3mg or 18mg, where with capsules you’re stuck at whatever size the capsule is.  

Oils can also easily be thrown into food or beverages, and this actually brings up the main negative — they taste earthy and grassy. Many don’t seem to have a big issue with this, but there are many options available if you end up not liking the taste.

Natural Remedies For Epilepsy And Seizures In Dogs

It’s never easy seeing your dog fall to the ground and shake uncontrollably. It’s not easy seeing it happen after the 50th time, and it’s certainly not easy the first time when you’re not even expecting it. For many dogs, epilepsy starts when they’re young — within the first year. And it can occur anywhere, inside, in the yard, in their dog house.

This form of epilepsy is known as Idiopathic epilepsy, and not only is it the most common forms, it occurs in certain breeds dramatically more than others. Australian Shepherds, Beagles, Border Collies, Boxers, Cocker Spaniels, German Shepherds, both Golden and Labrador Retrievers, and Poodles are just a few of the breeds where veterinarians often see higher occurrences of seizures.

Diagnosing Seizures

While Idiopathic epilepsy is the most likely culprit of seizures in dogs, it’s not the only reason your dog may have them.

Cancer and/or physical injuries that cause brain damage are also common culprits when it comes to seizures. Even when all other side effects that occured due to the brain damage are no longer present seizures can still happen.

Luxury dog houses – who needs them? Well your dog for one. While a luxury dog house may not be  necessity, a dog house in general is, at least if he’s an outdoor dog. The luxury aspect is more of a, well, luxury. So these fancy dog houses are more for people who are apt to design. And people who really want a dog house to not only serve it’s purpose, but also look amazing doing so.

But as luxury dog houses are pricier than regular dog houses, there are some factors which should be considered before making your purchase. This is to make sure that your money’s spent on the right piece of dog furniture.

When you think about it, a dog’s house is more or less the equivalent of a dog crate, which is more or less the equivalent of a dog den. If you have trained your dog in a crate from the time he was a puppy then transitioning your dog to use an outside dog house will be a lot easier. He’ll already be den oriented.
