I have tried the raw food diet and the magnesium with my 2 year old Border Collie "Sadie" to no avail. She went from having 2-3 seizures a day to clustering where she had to be taken to the vet to be issued high doses of phenobarbital to get her out of them. Even with this she would have petite seizures for 2 days afterwards and be a haze for another week. She has grand mal seizure episodes 1-2 times a month. She has been prescribed phenobarbital and potassium bromide twice a day and she still was having seizures. My vet pretty much told me Sadie would eventually have cluster seizures she can't come out of and would probably die from brain damage or would have to be put down.
I found a website on line http://www.gentlecarepet.com I wrote into the lady at the website and her name is Pearl - she recommended several products that detox and calm her nerves. In two months she had one seizure and the seizure formula took her right out of it. If you are struggling with a pet that has seizures or any other problems please check this web site out. It is all natural and it really works - please feel free to contact me if you want to discuss anything. Pearl contacts every person and will recommend what you need for your unique situation.
