Health Questions & Answers



My dog is having multiple seizures. Usually he is doing nothing, or laying down. I notice because I pick him up, or he is sitting in my lap. He is a maltese/shihtzu mix and is 2 years old. He weighs about 14 pounds. I have timed some of his seizures, and they last about 5-7 minutes, some with him throwing up in between. He is unresponsive, his muscles lock up, etc. From what I know, this started in March, but he does get sick during the night every few weeks, so it may have started long ago. But, it has been happening more frequently. At least once to twice a week. I have been told that honey can help with blood sugar in small breed dogs. I tried giving him a small teaspoon tonight, and it seemed to help him come out of the state he was in, but he is still very shaky. His body is shaking a lot, but his temperature feels warm like usual. Is there anything that I can do myself to help or stop this, or do I need to take him to a vet? I have had him at the vet before to be tested for kidney damage when I thought he had gotten into some pesticide. The results were fine, no damage. Please help! Thank you, Caitlin

Dear Caitlin,

I think you should take your dog in for some blood work and also have another stool sample run. I would also give our homeopathic product, Promaxol for a while to see if that helps. I would give about 10 drops twice daily. It would also be helpful to give some additional supplements such as Canine Probiotics and Omega 3,6,9 to support the body in general. For the nervous I also like to give Geriform which is a choline/ B vitamin product. Because of the seizures I would also suggest having your dog checked by a veterinary chiropractor.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
