Omega 3 Fish Oils

These have helped to reduce much of the head shaking, and eliminated most of the isolated leg twitches and brief facial tremors I have seen in my Epi when he is in a restful state. It also helped reduce most of some irregular breathing patterns that have occurred when he is napping.
