Seizures have been linked to a magnesium or taurine deficiency . Dr. Beverly Cappell-King, DVM says she puts all dogs with seizures on magnesium and says she sees a decrease in their intensity and frequency.MSM(Methylsulfonylmethane) and Rescue Remedy have also had some success, (MSM permanently stopped seizures within a week for a dog who was having 30-40 a day) although it would depend on the underlying cause. Some seizures have also been linked to liver disease, hyperthyroidism, hypogycemia and certain cleaning products or fibres( such as those found in new upholstery) .Check with your vet before starting any supplement protocol.
