This Month, Monday is About Supplements

Health

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. My huMom & I were looking over my seizure activity journal & noticed since I began supplementing my meals with Taurine the amount of Grand Mals I’ve experienced has gone down. It’s becoming more common for me to only show what used to be my postictal behavior such as dashing about & being very agitated, which might suggest I’m close to an event threshold but not breaking through or I could be having focal seizures.

This morning I leaped out of bed. I was very agitated & needed to run. At times I would crouch down & whine. HuMom gave me Keppra, which is my cluster buster & once it took affect I was calm. But again, I had no Grand Mal & it seems the Taurine may be helping me. We will discuss this with my good vet.

This month, on Monday’s I’m going to discuss the supplements I take to help me fight the monster & keep me in top health. My kidneys & especially my liver need all the support I can give them & I do this with all natural, herbal products. I also have probiotics added to my meals because my meds are hard on my digestive system & we all know a healthy gut is important.

I’d also like to know what supplements my fellow epi warriors might take.

News

My huMom & I connect with many online in the canine epilepsy community. We’re grateful for the pawsative, supportive friends that we have met while sharing experiences & resources.

Every day, people having just learned their dog has epilepsy seek out these groups looking for help, emotional support & knowledge, just as we did & continue to do.

It’s been a few years now but we haven’t forgotten what it was like to be new to canine epilepsy. Today we would like to share an earlier blog post entitled, Are You New To Canine Epilepsy?

Your not alone, just reach out a paw.
