Watching our dog have a seizure is one of the most traumatic things I have ever experienced. It’s very hard for anyone who has never seen a seizure to understand. Those few seconds–seem like a lifetime and you just never know if they are going to come out of it. Our pup was doing ok for awhile but then started having the seizures more frequently. We found a holistic veterinarian nearby. Surprising, but he told us that food allergies and stress can be a big trigger. Riley always had allergies and ear infections so we worked with our vet to change his diet. He is on Primal raw venison and we use a variety of freeze-dried treats such as Stella and Chewy’s and Vital Essentials. We also give Riley CBD oil, fish oil and digestive enzymes along with Keppra. He has not had a seizure in over a year. I found the information on this website helpful https://www.askariel.com/holistic-canine-epilepsy-treatment-s/1833.htm and use their Happy Paws Hemp oil and Amazing Omegas. Hope this helps someone with their dog. Seizures are so tough but we did find help for our Riley.
I used the low phosphorous for my rescue dog who was a very finicky eater. He had liver problems (not kidney) but it was lower in fat and he really liked it.
I agree with Nadia- and I really like Stella and Chewy’s freeze dried food too with good results.
I have learned that when dogs are fussy and have mucus in their poop, it could be that they have food intolerances.
I learned a lot from this page-
I have been using Lypozyme and Power Probiotic and it really helped!
So sorry to hear this about Ollie 🙁
I went through something similar earlier this year. I had been to several vets, and tried so many ways to make the gulping/gurgling stop. We FINALLY found some help when I came across this page-
We started out with the GastroULC and Probiotic, and the gulping subsided a few days later!
Hope this helps Ollie! Reach out if you have any questions!November 6, 2019 at 4:00 pm in reply to: Gulping Attacks with Excessive Licking – SOLUTION! #149374 Report Abuse
I agree with Laura- this sounds like acid reflux.
I went through the exact same problem with my dogs earlier this year, and this page was SO helpful:
One dog wouldn’t stop eating grass, and another had non-stop gulping & gurgling.
I highly recommend the GastroULC and Probiotic- this combination helped clear up all of problems right away.
Hope this helps!!
