And I have tons of questions, but will try hard not to hog the forum. First ,let me say, all of you who are dealing with seizure dogs are truly angels. I have been in rescue for almost 20 years and done over 300 rescues. This is my first seizure dog and it by far the hardest thing yet.I am able to bring Morgan out of her seizures by covering her eyes. I know my vet thinks I am crazy but it really works for her. I was just wondering if any body else has ever done this too?? I don't even get a chance to time the seizure because she stops within seconds of me covering her eyes. Luckily I have been right there when her 3 seizures happened.

Hi there
It sounds like some sort of occular compression that is mentioned in the epi-guardian angels site. Do you put pressure on the eyes?
Sometimes strange things work for some dogs and for others it does nothing.
I see she is one soloxine for low thyroid - how long is the course of treatment? This may stop the seizures - here's hoping.
I think vets think we are all crazy with some of the odd things we do - but hey if it works , then good. Vets also say vaccinations and flea/tick/heartworm treatments do not cause seizures but we all know different.
