My dog is 2 now and started doing the exact same thing since he was 8 months old. I've taken him to every neurologist in PA..I could not fathom the fact that my baby bulldog was epileptic. Opinion after opinion kept coming back the same. He's currently on pheno and potassium bromide. It's trial and error for awhile trying to achieve the exact level for your own dog. We have tried introducing a 3 rd medicine (keppra) into the conjunction, but that made his fly bitting worse. I was told that his fly bitting will probably never be able to be controlled 100%. I'm fine with that because it could be worse. My heart breaks for bully moms that have pups with gran mals. A little over 3 months ago my mom suggested taking Douglas, my bully, to a holistic doctor. At the visit she did a round of acupuncture and included a few meds, Chinese medicine, into his daily pill cocktails. She also told me to incorporate a few things into his food, such as cooked kale, blueberries, chicken, ect. I kid you not he has not had one episode since. He goes once a month to get his acupuncture and b12 shot. Douglas also goes to university of Pennsylvania veterinary hospital where he sees his neurologist. We are hoping that down the road, he can be weaned off of the anticonvulsant medicines. It's worth a try.
