Re: If i got my dog neutered would it help his seizures?

Thanks so much for your info. I have to look into the male hormones vs females. I have heard about females doing better after surgery but not sure about males.

If i got my dog neutered would it help his seizures?

I have a Tibetan mastiff who is a male at 6 years of age. He is non aggressive and good natured. He is a bit of a nervous dog and I wonder if his anxiety level triggers his seizures. He used to get seizures once every 3 to 6 months but now he gets them once a month and sometimes more. I was wonder i...

Question about FRONTLINE?

I have been reading a lot on this site that FRONTLINE Plus can cause seizures. Most are saying to go with just FRONTLINE by itself. When I went to the FRONTLINE website the only two products where FRONTLINE Plus and FRONTLINE Top Spot. There is no product called just FRONTLINE by itself. Is the FRON...

Really don't know Googles but are there any other signs. Even when Barney has had a seizure that we didn't see we know he has because he displays agitation and very definite post-ictal behaviour. If your dog isn't then maybe he was just sick. yea he was totally normal. no signs of anything. i guess...

Check out epi-guardian angels site (thru links) there is home meals there. Why do you want to give your dog cooked food ? It takes out all the goodness from it. Raw is best. You could also check out a site Volhard. They have a great web site and interesting facts on feeding dogs. Cooked V's raw etc...
