We went through this years ago with a Dalmatian. Sadly the pheno did not work, even though we continued to increase the dosage the seizures worsened. As the level of meds increased there were side effects: weight gain, aggression (usually food based) lethargy after a seizure, injuries from the seizure...... I think the scariest was when he caught a squirrel and then had a gran mall with it still in his mouth, (alive for most). At the time I had 2 small children, we all loved the dog and tried for 2 years to help, but when he started acting aggressively to the kids..... good luck, I hope it works out better for your family then it did for us.

I have found a natural supplement that is for humans, but a lot of people are starting to give this to their animals with good results. Take a look at www.sharethecause.com/hastily/Unseen-Killers It will list epilepsy as a condition that can result from an overload of heavy metals and toxins in our bodies and they are finding out that animals are experiencing some of the same diseases/symptoms as humans when being exposed to these toxins. This product can safely and easily remove these toxins and promote better health. Message me if you are interested in learning more about this and or how to order this product. Awesome stuff! Mary
