[MENTION=15364]oscarmayer[/MENTION] Sorry to hear that LaLa has started to have seizures. I have had 2 dogs who had seizures. The most recent was Katie,my last rescue. As [MENTION=15310]helsonwheels[/MENTION]
mentioned, I was using frankensense when she started, and it seemed to stop the seizure. That was helping for awhile. Usually Phenobarbitol is the next step, when nothing else works. Sending love to Lala and hoping that she does not progress to grand mal. :pray:

The other major treatment for epilepsy is potassium bromide 400 mg/ml liquid, dose is 20-35 mg/kg orally every 24h; divide every 12 hours if GI upset. Titrate dose using serum level of drug.

both of my bullies had seizures in the past (mom 3X and son 1X) - head bobbing, usually up and down - seemed to occur with mom in a monthly cycle. Changed from Nexguard oral flea/tick to a topical solution and haven't seen a seizure in either dog in the past two years.

Proof in the pudding as we say... but, why did you stop using it? I’m asking cause it’s building up my notes. Might do that book you want once I’m semi retired lol

I've ordered Frankincense oil...should be here in a day or so. We have not seen her have any sort of episode since the last ones I first reported. That's strange but I welcome "no more".
My Dozer had them on occasion and they seemed to come in clusters. He would have them(well...I should say I would SEE them) 3-5 days in a row and then it would be months before I'd see them again. Kind of like when I get eyelid twitching. They would happen several times a day for a few days and then maybe not again for a year or more. I'm thinking there's some sort outside influence/trigger for all of this behavior.
The brain is very complex...

Frankincense basically helps the nervous system and been proven to shrink tumours. As you know it’s my “go to” oil especially for EB. A few years back Nyala started to sit on her bum n doing the fly catching or licking the air thingy. I would use this oil every other day n she stooped her little rain dance. This week I’ve noticed she did it a couple times. So now I think I’m going to leave her on frankincense for good. But that being said, what’s odd, this so call licking the air, when she does it she also has just a dirty tail pocket. I don’t know why, my gut says the air licking can be a tail pocket issue. As you know Nyala always had a tail pocket problem but pass year her tail stays clean for a good month if not more. Last time I’ve cleaned her tail was 3 weeks ago but cleaned it this morning n was a lot of hair in her tail. Winter coat is kicking in. Probably why it only did 3 weeks. So, yes do use frankincense everyday on Lala. Anyway it won’t hurt her at all

It's very strange...Lala's doesn't air lick...she fly snaps. She'll be comfortably sitting(in my lap last time it happened) and she'll look up like she sees something and she'll move here head like she's focused on and following a gnat or fly, then she snaps at it. She usually repeats this several times. All the while, there's nothing there. Too weird.

What I meant by lick the air or fly catching to me it’s the same movement. I should have been more specific. Nyala basically doesn’t stick out her tongue whatsoever. She’ll sit on her bum like mentioned, no tongue sticking out and will do that Stevie Wonder style when he sits at the piano and moves his head to follow the beat. But there is no focus. Her head goes left, right, up, down... crap man pretty soon she’ll do a 360 like The Exorcist! Now I’ll have a fregen issue! Lolll
