Epilepsy Remedies for Dogs

Vaccines and Seizures in Dogs  

Posted by Deb (Watertown, MN) on 02/21/2007

There is some evidence that epilepsy in dogs can be caused by all the unnecessary booster vaccinations. Dogs usually start having seizures at 2 years old after their booster shots are given. Most vaccinations given puppies should last their lifetime. Check the internet for more detailed information on this subject.This I know is not a remedy but possibly a preventative.

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.

I have read about your success with this holistic medicine for your dog. My dog had started his seizures in 2007 when he was 4 and one half years old. We put him on kbr and he was seizure free for almost 3 years. He is a wolf hybrid and weighs about 80 lbs. Then last Aug, the seizures came back with a vengeance. I have been dealing with Dr. Dodds in CA and sending his bloodwork to her. He is hypothyroid and is on soloxine, was on zonisamide, but Dr. Dodds does not like this drug, so he is on keppra now. He went 6 weeks without a seizure, then we doubled his dose and he went 9 weeks. Then had one 5 weeks ago, now yesterday at 10AM, 6 hours after his medicine was given and again at 4AM today, right after his meds were given.

He will be 9 on Thanksgiving. He is our special boy and we dont want to lose him. I belong to the guardian angel website and they have helped a lot with support. Can you help me?

I have no money or a car. My Springer is on penobarb. Vets are greedy and only care about making money. No money no service. Vets will let your dog die before they even take a partial payment. I know treatments cost money. But the vet couldn't even wait for his money. So I pray and read websites like this one. I found that penobarb will slowly destroy your dog with side effects. Commercial dog food is expensive, poison and causes weight gain.

You need natural raw or cooked dog food high in vitamins protein and nutrition. Try TAURINE.

I wish I knew more to help your dog and my dog. I still do not have all the answers. Its the worst thing I ever felt to see my dog have a seizure and can do absolutely nothing to help.

Hello. I have seen ur post on natural remedies for your epileptic dog. I know u posted this back in 2008 but I currently have a chihuahua who is suffering from terrible cluster seizures and I am terrified she will die from it soon. I would prefer to stag away from conventional medication. Any information u can provide me would be amazing. Thank u

I virtually cured my dog with her seizures with zinc one tab per day but you will have to give her a much smaller dose

Hello, please see the posts on the Earth Clinic pet epilepsy page about how people changed their dogs' water source from tap water to filtered water and the dogs had no more seizures.

Try zinc tablets for seizures in dogs. I had a cross border collie kelpie who suffered with seizures.

I gave her a zinc tablet once a day and went from having four a week to about two a year and they were very mild.
