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) https://drjeandoddspethealthresource.tumblr.com/post/132332401041/seizures-epilepsy-dog#.W6QVZ_lRfgc

AVOID foods containing glutamate and aspartate.

  • Nuts, especially peanuts, cashews and pistachios

  • Seeds, including sunflower and pumpkin

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

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