Better But With Side Effects

We have a 2 yr old siberian Husky who has been cluster seizing since 7mos old. Recently I have been using Ocular Compression on her during the seizure, and in some cases, the efforts have stopped the seizure in mid stream ..

Typically it will phases of the seize that include paddling, jaw extension, full ridigidy, bowel movements etc .. When I reached her early enough, ocular compression stopped many of the phases. Ive done it 6 times now with successful outcome..

The upside is an immediate recovery from the seize - almost no post ictal phase.. the downside is now, she has developed facial ticks when she is drifiting off to sleep ..

I've stopped using the technique now due to the fact that it looks to be very uncomfortable when she is trying to sleep and her face ticks her awake.

Hope this information helps others with seizing dogs - and virtually no medical remedy.
