Can you treat a dog's seizures without medication?
Our dog is on phenobarbital for seizures, but we are wondering if natural or alternative remedies would be effective
My dog is on Phenobarbital also and he takes 1 1/2 pills every 12 hours and Zonisamide 200 Mg every 12. I haven't looked into any natural or alternative remedies.
Hopefully we have a good month with no seizures but we will see.
I do not know of any natural remedies, but I do know that fellow trainers I know have had success in reducing seizures with pressure wraps. I prefer the Anxiety Wrap. I would be cautious about natural remedies. Although medication may not be your first choice, it is still the most effective and reliable method I know of for treating seizures.
I haven't heard of any that are proven to work all that well. With my own dogs I would feel better with the advice of a vet, at least in the first instance, before trying anything else. And I would also ask my vet what they're opinion is on alternative therapies. I trust my vet in this, as they also sell alternative therapies and carry out procedures such as acupuncture for dogs.

Does anyone think there is anyway to solve depression, without medication??I am definitely in a slump, and really need to get out of it. But I need help. Anti-depressants are always there, just wanted to explore a little before I made that decision.
