Seizure's and bloat

Good morning! I'm new to this list and one of my vet's, Suzanne Stack DVM , told me about this list and thought I'd find it useful. I have a 4 1/2 year old spayed Irish Setter who started having seizures when she was about 18 mo's. They have progressed to what I would call "clusters" and she usually...
