Just fyi - our dog neurologist said do not use Nexgard, Comfortis or Trifexis for flea protection in dogs with history of seizures. Frontline is fine.

Dr said to do bloodwork and go from there. Try to manage but if they get more common/frequent THEN he will put her on the Pheno. He agreed with you all ( and us) that it could be stress or too much exercise but since we werent paying attention to 2015 seizures, we dont know.

She goes tomorrow for the bloodwork and then we will get the results Monday.

Hes not convinced changing her food again would stop them but i think its worth trying..so back to Blue we go!
This is just an FYI. Ol Roy is one of the worst dog foods (if not THE worst) on the market. It is absolute c**p. Blue Buffalo is a better food for sure but also depends which one you are feeding. Go to Dog Food Advisor and look up your foods. You can find very decent foods for not a lot of money, it just takes a bit of effort and education.

Good luck with the blood test. My dog was on Pheno for years and did well. She did eventually start having frequent Grand Mal seizures and nothing helped at that point but every dog is different.

We arent feeding them Ol Roy. We havent since 2015 when all this started.

Frontline has a generic brand with the same ingredients.

Oh Good. When you said "so back to Blue we go" it sounded like you had reverted to the previous food.

Our 12 yr old Sheppard / terrier rescue dog has seizures. They started off bad, and with urination. Then they stopped for a few months, and then it remanifested with it just being the back legs. We haven't done anything different.

My cocker was diagnosed with idiopathic vestibular disease and its symptoms are much like seizures. Just to let you know that I thought it was seizures. He had the first, then one about a month later, then another about 3 weeks later, now none. It has been several months since the last episode. It is also called 'old dog disease'.
