B12 and Folic

Post by skrpio » Sat Oct 10, 2009 4:10 pm

I have heard this and decided to post it here incase it may be of help to others. I don't know all the ins and outs so please don't ask me because this is all I know.

You will need to do the reseach for yourselves.

This woman has an English Setter that started seizing at the age of 5 years old. She found some information that B12 shots and folic acid might help her boy because he was having intermittent diarrhea issues that depleted him of those two things. After getting the B12 shots, her dog hasn't had a seizure in 5 months, nor has he had the daily tremors.

I hope this can be of some help to those pups still having problems.
