DMG still working

I first posted a message in July that DMG seemed to be working to stop my dog's seizures. It is now more than six months later and he still has not had any seizures and there are no side effects. I hope somebody is studying this stuff because it appears to have had a miraculous effect on my dog.

Dimethylglycine

The neurologist who is treating my dog in New York City suggested that we try dimethyglycine, a nutritional amino acid, for a month before traditional medication. Does anyone have any positive or negative experience with this stuff or know anything about it?

Thanks so much for your response. I forgot to tell you something. The shelter where I got the dog said he had had seizures as a puppy, although he never had any once I got him, untill he was eight years old. Does this fact change your recommendation about getting a brain scan?

any new drugs and when to start?

My dog, a 10-yr old retriever mix, had a seizure a year for the past two years. Then he had three within the last two months; 2 within 2 weeks and the third a month later. Should I start him on meds?
