Kay, I am so sorry to learn about Jezzebelle. It is so hard to know that yet another of our pups has had to cross the bridge.

You will need to do the reseach for yourselves. This woman has an English Setter that started seizing at the age of 5 years old. She ...

I have found where the thyroid results are on the forum.
I asked Jean Dodds for them after I got KiKi's results back and Kain put them in for me.

The thing with Dr Dodds is that she compares the results for the same type of dog whereas others just read off a chart or something ie the results can be the same for a Mastiff as for a Foxie and do not take into account the size and activity of the dog. After battling with my vet over thyroid my Ki...

If Morgan is hypothyroid are you giving him treatment for this?
If you are remember any meds for this increases their metabolism and the anti-seizure meds will have to be upped for a while until the thyroid treatment is complete. Check with Jean Dodds on this one.

I am jumping in here. Have you thought about the food you are giving Dawson. I find the quality of food I give my non-epi boy really shows in the quality of his coat. I found a product in the US that I had shipped to me called Showstopper really helped. Also have you asked your vet about using Sodiu...

It seems that these seizures are caused by the head injury and are not idiopathic. If you can stop the seizure by moving the head slightly I think this suggests some sort of pinched nerve or damaged nerve. Is there any way this can be checked out as releiving this may stop the seizures. You have to ...

I am so sorry that Raven had to go through what she did. Be at peace now knowing she is in a much better place with all of the other epi fur kids. Many will be waiting for her - KiKi included.

Please dump all the Hartz products. There is a website dedicated to all of those animals that have been killed by Hartz products but please don't look at it if you cannot stand to bawl your eyes out. If you are having finanical problems put a 1/4 tsp of minced garlic into the food. This keeps away f...

I would still get your house checked for toxins. In most cases it takes a while for toxins to build up in the body especially for heavy metals and this could be why your second dog began seizing later on. Can you remember if both dogs began seizing at a certain period of time after they began living...
