    Default CBD questions for Neru 10 week old

    Dumplin came to us 8/6/2019 approximately 3 weeks old after falling from nest 40-50 feet and on to concrete. She has had two 9 day treatments of prednisone. She can go for days without having seizures and than have bad days where she will have small seizures throughout the day. Her balance has gotten a little better. When feeding her, she gets excited and turns to the left. She potties on her own. She cannot eat on her own. I feed her formula, boo block, veggies & fruits that I blend & put in syringes & water through syringes. She may be blind in one eye. Have taken her to Vet but was not given any meds or treatment info. Vet wanted to see major improvement within 3 weeks (I took her to vet 8/27/19). She is a great eater but I have to hold her boo blocks in front of her mouth for her to eat them.

    I found this https://getleafynow.com/cbd-and-a-squirrel-named-fig/ and ordered a bottle of CBD oil 150mg. Have not given her any, I was hoping someone could help with dosing or have any info about this because I would like to try her on it.

    Today she weighs 293 grams and is approximately 10 weeks old.

    This is the company where I ordered the CBD oil https://actnaturally.club/product/ac...hemp-tincture/

    And here is the info on the back of the bottle:
    NOT THC No psychotropic effects. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of 85 cannabinoids found in the Hemp Plant. Cannabinoids are a class of botanical compounds that deliver an array of benefits. We begin with Certified Organic Industry Hemp, extracted purely and contains high levels of CBD.
    Vegan/Gluten Free/Pesticide Free Non-GMO perfection!

    150mg Full Spectrum
    Dosage three/five drops 5mg/ml
    CBD ,.10mg/ml CBG,.02/mg/ml
    CBDA,.057mg/ml CBGA,.02mg/ml
    CBN,.022mg/ml DELTA9THC

    Could someone please help with dosing, how long she should be taking this and any other advice/help will be grately appreciated!

    Thank You,

    I haven’t used and/or heard of CBD used on squirrels.
    But all this hype around it is backed by insufficient research in general.
    What is known, however, is that it’s supposed success in treatment of seizures is inconsistent at best (aside from hyped marketing “stories”). It’s not recommended for children and teens whose brains are still developing. It’s addictive and it is mind-altering. Depending on one’s genetic makeup, it may trigger mental health problems in teens, young and not so young adults.

    Now, applying the above scarce info to squirrels:
    1. First off, no research
    2. Squirrels’ metabolism is faster than that of human children and teens, their brains are even smaller (obviously) and nothing is known about genetic makeup of any given squirrel — all this means that all the negative effects observed in human consumption of CBD may be magnified in ways we don’t know.
    Using CBD on this baby (or any sq for that matter) is pretty much using this baby as a lab rat.
    3. Until there is solid research on CBD effect on squirrels, IMO using it is not a good idea.
    4. Hemp is not part of a regular wild squirrel diet either

    Behind all the hype around CBD/hemp/etc. there is very little conclusive research

    Julia, I use it on the groundhog but we are still experimenting with dose. I got it based on the experience and extremely high recommendation of 2 well known groundhog rehabbers.

    I got the brand they both use which is different from yours.

    The best advice I can offer is start low and slow. It seems to show effect in about 20 minutes and wears off at about 4 hours. Like start at a drop at a time.

    In some rare cases it can cause irritability but I think that pretty rare.

    Vet doesnt seem sold on it and has warned of placebo effect, but was willing to hear me out and allow me to try before going to prescription drugs. Vet unable to recommend dose...but did say I needed to take into consideration the difference of diet and gut between cats/dogs and squirrels/groundhogs.

    That's all I've got. Wishing you the very best!

    Thank You MilosMom What brand did you use? Was the groundhog showing neru symptoms? Did you see improvement? How long did you treat for? Are you still treating?

    KOI brand 1000mg
    No not neuro, it's for anxiety to help her with training
    We are still working on dose so I'm not sure what I'm seeing. It's very difficult to replicate stressful situations so it's always new for her. She is very good at "come to Mom if you have a scary"
    I use it as needed
    Yes still using

    Sorry for only seeing this thread now.
    As I understand CBD has even been approved for infant children born with epilepsy.
    I use it, I get only the best from USA the store is called 'YOUR CBD STORE' and they are in almost every state, or you can place a phone order, online order.
    My 7 year old seizure squirrel who had been on phenobarbital most of her life is now on CBD oil.
    Actually she's been on it for over a year and a half!
    I've been reducing her phenobarbital and adding a bit more CBD oil.
    The verdict is in she is doing so much better, so much more alert much more coordinated as I'm sure the phenobarbital drugged her.
    She has had no seizures and slowly I hope to wean her completely.
    Mind you she could go into grand mal seizures, not just light seizures, so this is HUGE. I'm so grateful for discovering this oil.
    So amen to CBD👏
    I only recommend what I use from the source I get it from as there are a lot of fake junk oils out there👍
