Concerns with Dog Seizures or Epilepsy
After 17+ years of working with issues involving seizures in dogs, or troublesome and epilepsy related neurological events, we have attained our fair share of valuable information on the subject – that any owner of a dog with seizure issues should know. When people call about dog seizures and epilepsy, they 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. These medications also can make your dog seriously lethargic, which is no fun for the dog or you. Remember this fact; A dog can have a seizure for any number of reasons, but having a seizure may not indicate that the dog has actual epilepsy. If finding HELP is high on your priority list, the following LINKS will be helpful.
Foundational Issues that can Cause Seizure Problems in Dogs:
- Brain tumor, Head injury

At NZYMES.COM We feel that regardless of the nature of the seizure activity, to avoid seizure in dogs, a reliable nutritional program is always a good idea to support the cleansing of toxins that become built up through the use of daily medications and poor quality food and treats.
First and Foremost: We recommend to give NZYMES Antioxidant Treats or NZYMES Sprouted Granules to your pet daily. This simple action supports a natural antioxidant cleansing process to eliminate toxin build-up in the liver and kidneys from medications, poor quality food ingredients, food coloring and chemical additives found in many of the more common pet foods and treats sold today.
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.
Secondly, to reduce risk of seizures in dogs, read the ingredients in your pet’s food and treats: We suggest that you avoid Wheat Flour and/or Wheat Gluten, Food Colorings and Chemical Additives. Your will find these poor ingredients in the majority of supermarket and big chain pet stores, not to mention the big discount stores. In our 20 years of experience, these ingredients tend to be the primary activators of activity with epileptic and seizure-prone dogs.
We suggest pet foods which are made with Human grade ingredients (if possible), natural preservatives, balanced omega fatty acids, digestive enzymes and probiotics. Plus, you will want to see the words ‘Chelate or Sequestered’ in relation to the vitamins or minerals described in the ingredients panel 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 seizures in dogs and Epilepsy.
Thirdly: If your pet must be vaccinated, receive flea or heart-worm medication, undergo surgical procedures, or endure any period of increased stress, we highly recommend to double the usage of the Antioxidant Treats or Sprouted Granules 3-4 days prior and 4-7 afterwards the planned vaccinations. This nutritional support may help to increase the body’s detoxification ability, and lessen the impact of these problematic factors.

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.
