Before my story, I wanted to thank everybody on this site to share their experience and stories. You guys all have helped me so much in seeking help in different health issues I have encountered on me and my families. Thank you.
Here is my story:
My pug named Rain had been on an r/d diet for many years. After they changed to a new package, she had consumed over one bag of the new packaged food and she always show a lot of hesitation to eat. I felt bad because I did not listen to her signal. She just had a seizure out of nowhere on Friday, March 11, 2016 and she is 11 years old. But she did not just have one seizure, she had a seizure every 5 hours on average starting that Friday. I was so desperate to look for remedies and info and couldn't figure out what's wrong with her because with all the researches I had done in this short time frame, she did not seem to have liver, kidney or any other problems. But I remember ever since she started the new package of the r/d food, she acted very weird, like always frozed in the middle of the road and couldn't hear me calling her unless I screamed loud enough.
I was able to find a lot of info online and on the earthclinic.com site. I have tried taurine supplement with minimal help and then the next day fish oil. I looked through all the info about dog food and fish oil and the benefits of it and I felt confident enough to give her a try.
So when the store opened on Sunday 11am, I bought the fish oil, fed her the oil with chicken, and her supposed Sunday 3:00pm seizure did not come. And I waited till now and her 8pm seizure did not come either. I feel like the fish oil is really helping her. But within the past couple of days which was Friday nite and Saturday till Sunday morning, she had already gone through 8 seizures in total. I had already stopped feeding her this diet the next day after the first seizure incident after I read a lot of ppl's stories here. I really think something's wrong with it.
I also remember after she started the new bag, she started having her first ear infection and skin problem which she never had for her whole life. I want to thank everyone here again for their time to tell their stories because all these info really help ppl like me And others who need help.
It's almost Monday 1am, she seems very comfortable sleeping still.
I have a 5lbs 4oz chiuaua who from the first year I had her suffered from seizures. Went to the vet who prescribed phenobarbytol which made her lethargic and begin getting fat and did nothing for the seizures. Even after at the end tripling the dose. I went online and spent about a week on research and finaly ordered norwegian fish oil. I only have to give her two a week and she has not had a seizure since. She is 5 years old now. The best thing is I do not have to force feed it to her I squeeze the gel caps out on a plate and she will happily lick the plate clean. The vet said that it would not work. He got quite when I told him she has not had a seizure in a year and does not had in meds in the last year except the oil.
I had a litter of pups get their first vaccinations. Exactly three weeks later all of them had back to back seizures for 48 hours straight. Horrible seizures where they ran across the floor and would slam into the wall. It was terrifying. I looked it up and found that lepto will cause seizures 21 days after vaccination. Just like my pups.
They had seizures for several years until we found out that fish oil would stop them. Within a few weeks of giving them fish oil daily the seizures became so mild that the pups would just shake. Eventually they stopped completely. My pups lived to 14 and 15 years old. They never got another vaccination after they were one!
