Hi Folks
Long time German Shorthaired Pointer owner but it looks like my latest pup acquisition (now 3 year old intact GSP) has come down with a serious seizure problem he has had 3 in the last 6 months 2 minor ones, one more major ( the middle one) lasting about 2 min. I have tried to pin down the situation that triggers them but the only common factor seems to be that I am not present.
The one big concern is when should I be looking at starting him on a medication and if neutering him will have a positive or negative effect on his seizures.

Thanks
Grant
Great forum!

Hi Grant,
If you think that separation anxiety may be a trigger, you might want to try a Bach Flower Remedy called Rescue Remedy. Just a couple of drops in water or directly in their mouths and it helps some dogs to calm down. If you can't find it in a local store it's available online. We've used remedies like this for Jake and he's responded well.

I hope this helps.
Lynne

Thanks I will keep that on the list. At this point I am grasping at all the straws I can fit into both hand and hoping they just don't get any worse.
