We adopted a female Chihuahua close to four years ago. She too was on phenobarbital but we quickly noticed it made her more agitated and didn't seem to help keep the seizure frequency down. Our vet recommended Keppra, a human drug. It has done wonders for her! Ask your vet about it. It also is not so hard on the Liver, in fact doesn't even seem to adversely affect it...

I have a chihuahua who was having 2-3 seizures a week. I found a vet who recommended a grain free diet. In the first 2 weeks of starting a grain free diet, her seizures were cut in half, after that they completely stopped. That was about 3 years ago, she has had maybe 2 total since then and does not take any medication. I feed her boiled chicken for breakfast and then she eats grain free dry food.

My Bella (Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier) has had seizures for over 4 years. She is 5. I can no longer get her groomed because she works herself into a seizure. Does anyone in NJ know anyone who will work with dogs with seizures. Any and all medication has been of no help to my beautiful girl. Thanks
