Default Seizures and Gastro events probably unrelated

My Chloe is 2 years old now and when she was a puppy she had sudden onset of gastro type problems..back then the vet thought she had an obstruction and we had to fight like heck to raise the $ for surgery..her weight went down to 4.2 lbs she was dehydrated and they said I should "let her go" if I couldn't afford the surgery.....skip ahead to fantastic strangers who donated the funds...well they didn't find anything at all (a little gas in the cecum) a couple of times since then she has had the same symptoms - vomiting - small amount of blood in diarrhea - not eating but drinking ok - "play bowing" which I was told was pain and once only a seizure last year. So I give her pepcid (actually she steals them off my bedside table LOL ) and or a tummy coating med the vet gave her. She is the pickiest eater I have ever encountered and if she isn't interested in her food she just wont eat! I have found she can't tolerate fats too well so I have to be careful what foods I buy for her. At first my daughter thought it was stomach ulcers but was reading a bit about Gastroenteritis and this fits it closer. All that aside she has started having seizures again..about 2 a month. I have no clue why..pain related? The last one was horrid! She was napping with me on my bed and started thrashing so hard I thought she would fall I grabbed her up and held her snugly until it stopped. Poor baby! it went on for several minutes. I so wish dogs could talk! Thinking of getting her CBD oil. thoughts? She only weighs 6.5 lbs.

My chi, Emmie, has been on phenobarbital for "focal' seizures' for years. Aside from some weight gain, she has done fine. She used to have seizures where she would be lying down resting, and all of a sudden, she would take off running--all the time looking over she shoulder as if something/else was chasing her. Pheno stopped that. My other chi, Bonnie, takes Prelosic that is compounded for her. (over the counter for people) She has episodes where she won't eat, or drink. No known reason. It does help. These episodes were coming every 3rd day or so, instead of once a month. I know nothing about CBD oil.
