WHAT YOUR VET MAY NOT KNOW TO TELL YOU ABOUT EPILEPSY

I have 4 pugs. One is a OK, one a senior, one has allergies to food, and one has had idiopathic epilepsy for the past year and had seizures 2-4 times a month every month. It started a year ago when Rocky was 3. My vet says little is known about why the seizure activity happens and is why they call it "Idiopathic" Epilepsy. And so we tried Phenobarbital for 7 months with no results, and then added Potassium Bromide for the next 2 months....neither worked. Finally we eliminated the other meds and tried valium (crushed up in peanut butter) but it had to be administered before the seizure struck and it DID suppress the activity. So for 3 months, although the seizures were attempted, I was able to keep them from happening (I am home all the time). HOWEVER, I fed the allergic pug an all natural diet. The brand is called Taste of the Wild. I fed the other two pugs regular food (Purina or Pedigree bought at Kroger). Then, I just so happened to change the senior pug and epileptic pug's food to the same food as the allergic pug (Taste of the Wild). All of the sudden...NO MORE SEIZURES! If you have a pug or other dog with epilepsy, try this food! Regular food with fillers and by products very well may be your problem. I get mine at Tractor Supply Company. My vet was thankful for the new information as he had never heard of food being the cause of seizures but also he definitely could see that the food could have been the problem as they use a different food to help autism in dogs which also is a neural disease. I hope this helps as it is devastating to see your beloved pet have a seizure.
