Health Questions & Answers



I have written you before. My precious black lab had 2 seizures week before last weekend. Then last Saturday he had 8 seizures. Each one would just knock him flat, but he always returned to himself. But since the 8 seizures, he is unable to get up on his own. Once my husband gets him outside, he can walk fairly good, but just plops down every once in awhile. Is there anything I can do to help him? He is on Arthro-IonX and Anxietrex, but I am having problems getting fish oil down him and his turmeric. Once he is back inside, he is pretty content; but of course he tries to get up on his own every once in awhile & he barks for water, food and if he has to go to the bathroom. My husband needs to return to work, & I can't get him inside and out. He weighs 109 lbs. He is a big dog and my very best friend. I just can't come to putting him down. Please help.

Dear Connie,

If you haven't tried chiropractic or acupuncture I would look into those modalities. Other things that would make life easier for you would be a special harness such as one made by Guardian. It has handles to help you lift or steady the dog. There are other companies that make carts for handicap pets. That would not as easy to get a dog in by oneself. These are mostly used for paralyzed dogs. With rear end weakness I also use Geri-Form made by Llyods to nourish the nerves. I also try Conium maculatum 30C homeopathic preparation available at a health food store.

Hope some of this will be helpful to you.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
