Hi everyone, sorry I havent been active with the group. Im checking in because my girl, Mishe Mokwa, had a seizure tonight. This is the third one since Thanksgiving. Mishe is 3 years old. Her parents are Cree and Jay Silver Heels. She came from the fall 2016 liter. I brought her home December of 2016. I was wondering if any other siblings are having seizures? Also, any advise on preventing seizures? We stopped heart worm, flea tick meds. She eats Blue kibble grain free and homemade food like eggs, turkey, cooked veggies, yogurt, cream occasionally blueberries.. thanks for any help

Jay silver heels is (was, he passed away last year I think) also my pup's father. My pup and his litter mate both have overbites and were larger pups. Mine has never shown any health issues other than the overbite. He was born Dec 2016.

Sounds like my girl and your pup are siblings just not sure if they came from the same liter. So happy to hear your pup is healthy and seizure free. Thanks for responding.

Maybe Mishe is getting into something either in the house or outside. There are certain molds that will cause seizures in dogs. We learned the hard way that walnuts are a culprit. There's a mold that grows on walnuts that will cause seizures in dogs. Any walnut trees in the neighborhood?

Hello...Tenshi is my 8yr old.  A few years ago he had a seizure.  Took him to the vet - nothing wrong.  I mentioned this to a neighbor who had a retriever that had seizures much of her life.  She said the vet couldn't find what it was.  She found through observation that if the dog had something with nitrates in it -  like hot dogs,

she would have a seizure.  When I heard this I realized the night before Tenshi had his seizure a gas station person had given him a hot dog (after asking me).  Tenshi has never had a seizure since.  Only organic nitrate free hot dogs. Try looking for nitrates in some food she's eaten.  Good luck!

Thanks everyone for the input. I will continue to watch what Mishe eats and is around. May I keep her safe and seizure free.

Hey Lady, Great to hear from you. Sorry your lovely Mishe is having some problems. A few years ago cousin Wakinyan had a weird incident - not a seizure but limb trembling. It happened several times. I was worried it was neurological. Vet said electrolytes can be off. I don't remember now what she told us to give him but he never had another issue and that was years ago. Afterwards we started giving him sea weed regularly. Ask your vet about electrolytes. Good luck and keep us posted.

My 3 year old dog Jesse just had a grand mal seizure on June 1st at 4:30 am, it was awful. He has different parents than your Mishe. When he was under one year old he had head tremors for several days, then they stopped. I am praying he never has another seizure. Heartbreaking!
