Seizure Management Tips

“Dogs prone to seizures should not consume any potentially inflammatory ingredients, including foods that trigger allergies or intolerances/sensitivities”. (NutriScan test) (Dr. Jean Dodds)

AVOID foods containing glutamate and aspartate.

Glutamate and aspartate are two excitatory non-essential amino acids.

  • Grains - wheat, barley, and oats

  • All cow’s milk products (opt instead for goat’s milk, which is much lower)

  • Beans, especially soy, pinto, lima, black, navy, lentils

  • Nuts, especially peanuts, cashews and pistachios

  • Seeds, including sunflower and pumpkin

  • Foods sweetened with aspartame, such as NutraSweet and Equal;

  • Rabbit

  • Turkey

  • MSG monosodium glutamate

    • MSG can appear on pet food labels under a number of pseudonyms, including “hydrolyzed vegetable protein”, “soy protein extract” and “textured vegetable protein”

AVOID high glycemic index (GI) foods

  • Honey

  • Sugars

  • White rice

  • Wheat

  • Corn
