Pets and Seizures

There are a number of things that may cause seizures in pets. Epilepsy is when a pet has seizures for unknown reasons. Some other reasons for seizures may include: environmental toxins, being over vaccinated, and prior illnesses such as a infections, immune disorders, neurological disorders, and parasites.

What to Do

Diet: Sometimes seizures can be triggered by food sensitivities. Knowing how your pet tolerates different foods will give you good guidance on how to feed your pet the best diet.
Acupuncture: Regular visits to the acupuncture can help prevent seizures by moving energy into specific points of the body.
Fatty Acids: Fatty Acids from fish oil, coconut oil, and other sources have been known to improve certain neurons in the brain which can decrease the chance of your pet having a seizure.
Chiropractic: Regular chiropractic adjustments can help with past illnesses or injuries that may be the root cause of a pet’s seizures.
Supplements: There are various types of herbs, homeopathics, nutritionals, and flower essences that can help prevent seizures.What to Avoid:
Toxins: Environmental toxins are all around us but we can minimize the amount that our pets are expose to. Here are some toxins to be mindful of: exhaust, contaminated drinking water, smoke from cigarettes, flea & tick products, additives, and preservatives, just to name a few.
Over Vaccinating: Over vaccinating can put extra toxins in the body, which our pets may not need.
Stress: Consider situations that may cause extra stress for your pet. These events (moving to a new home, being left alone for extended periods of time, staying for a long period of time at a boarder) can cause extra stress, which in turn can lead to seizures in pets.
