I received an email from Dawn Whitridge asking for information about dogs and seizures. I haven’t had any experience with this, so I thought I would ask readers for any ideas for this owner.
‘I’m writing to everyone I know who loves dogs, in the hope that somebody can offer some helpful information. Our little Shih Tzu mix, Blossom, has seizures. She had a couple after we adopted her in June last year. The vet examined her, ran some tests, and said that everything was healthy and functioning normally, and hopefully she might not have any more problems.
“Since then she had been seizure free, but recently they began again. The vet said that if she began to have them regularly, we could of course put her on medication, but that there would be side effects. So, if you know of anybody who has or had a dog who suffered from seizures — apparently it is not uncommon — do they have any natural way of helping to eradicate them? Also, if you know of anybody who used the medication on their dog, how they did on it?
“Any information you might be able to give would be gratefully received.”
If anyone has any information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
