Seizures ( 7 year old Mini Male Schnauzer)
I am frantic... and need help!!! Has anyone had a Schnauzer with seizures?
I Took Pepper 7 yrs Old ( My Baby) to the Vet to have his ears checked for allergies and also scheduled to have him groomed while there. Doc called and said there is no ear infection, however he said, Pepper had two seizures on the Groomers table; so they decided to stop the process and gave him an injection ( Diazepam) to calm him. The Doc said they would like to run a blood test to check his liver and kidneys to rule out any other problems. Doc called today said blood result were fine everything look good. He also said it looks like Pepper has Epilepsy; and to monitor him the next few days and write down the time, date and length of the seizures and possibly start on medication next week.
Are there any natural treatments for dogs with seizures? I understand Diazepam and Phenobarbital has major side effects?
Thanks and I appreciate any response .
