Canine Epilepsy Treatment (Part 2)

Hi again! Here’s part 2, as I promised earlier.

•    Acupuncture or Gold Bead Implants, involve the placement of needles throughout the dog’s body, or placement of gold bead into the acupuncture points. I would try acupuncture before AED’s, but gold bead implants would be a last resort for me, to be considered only if everything else failed.

•    Diet, Homeopathy and Vitamin Therapy. I believe that diet plays a critical role in the treatment of canine epilepsy, because many commercial dog foods are full of chemical dyes and preservatives. Preservatives have been known to cause seizures in dogs that have a lower seizure threshold, and should be eliminated completely from their diets.

I believe that the benefits of feeding fresh, raw food and fresh pulped green leafy veggies actually stopped my dog’s seizures without us ever having to use AED’s. I recommend that you work with a holistic veterinarian to ensure that you are providing the right balance of food, vitamin and if recommended, homeopathic treatments. Serving filtered water may also be helpful, especially in states where the water has fluoride added.

Stay tuned for Part 3 of this article coming soon! And don’t forget to sign up using the form over there on the right sidebar to get a sneak-peek at Chapter 1 of Cory’s Story, which is currently in the publishing process!

  • Epilesy can be treated using vagus nerve stimulation(VNS). The VNS is programmed with a special sequence that is activated when a magnet is swept over the device. For patients who can sense the start of a seizure (the aura of a seizure), it can be useful in aborting the seizure. For patients who cannot sense the impending seizure, it can be useful for family and caretakers to shorten the seizure and allow for faster recovery of the patient.
