When calling us for help with dog seizures, our callers often express the desire, if possible, to avoid the need for medications like Phenobarbitol or Potassium Bromide, as they’re known to carry potentially harsh side effects. They also can make your dog seriously lethargic, which is no fun for you or them. We feel that regardless of the nature of the seizure activity, a reliable nutritional practice is always a good idea… If you read about the remarkable results with our nutritional approach, you would be astounded. Since it’s our goal to help you have the healthiest pets possible (seizure-free), we offer the following recommendations.
First and Foremost: We recommend to give NZYMES Antioxidant Treats or NZYMES Sprouted Granules to your pet daily. This simple action can often reduce the toxins built-up in the liver and kidneys from medications, poor ingredients, food colorings and chemical additives in many of the common pet foods and treats sold today. These toxins are often a contributing factor to increased seizure activity in dogs. The NZYMES formulas provide ‘living food’ nutrition which is lost in almost all processed pet foods. However they function as DIETARY enzymes, and support that natural antioxidant cleansing power of the body. Enzymes that are derived from food sources, support all your dog’s metabolic functions. and are not to be confused with Digestive enzymes like those in our NZYMES BacPak Plus.
Secondly, Read the Ingredients: We suggest that you feed only quality Super-Premium or Holistic foods and treats. (See Our Recommended List of Foods). We suggest that you avoid Wheat Flour and/or Wheat Gluten, Food Colorings and Chemical Additives. In our 20 years of experience, these tend to be the primary activators of activity with epileptic and seizure- prone dogs. We suggest foods which are made with Human grade ingredients (if possible), natural preservatives, balanced omega fatty acids, digestive enzymes and direct-fed microbial’s. You will want to see the words ‘Chelate or Sequestered’ in relation to the vitamin or mineral content of the food. The minerals, in particular, are instrumental in running the body’s electrical system. This is key when dealing with a problem like Epilepsy or Seizures.
Thirdly: If your pet must be vaccinated, receive flea or heart-worm medication, undergo surgical procedures, or endure any period of increased stress, it is important to double the usage of the Treats or Granules 1-2 days prior and 4-7 afterwards. This will help to increase the body’s detoxification ability, and lessen the impact of these problematic factors.
Important Additional Note: We have seen tremendous results with our customers using our NZYMES Antioxidant Treats for dog seizure problems. We offer a 120 Day Money Back Guarantee so that you can test these natural products and see the results yourself – RISK FREE. However, if your pet is already taking a prescription medication for Seizures, we are NOT suggesting to discontinue using them. We would highly recommend following our recommendations outlined above. If you note that your pet is seizure free for 2-3 months, you should consult with your vet about the possibility of lowering the dosage in stages, with the overall goal of weaning the pet off of them if possible. All changes to medications should be recommended only by a Veterinary professional.
