I have a Pomeranian.  She has epilepsy.  Is this common in Pomeranians?  If you have any information PLEASE e-mail me at Lil14Ashley@aol.com  As she gets older, the epilepsy gets worse.  We don't know what to do.  We've taken her to the vet.  And they say there isn't anything they can do.  but there has to be something.  Right?  PLEASE help me!!!

I had a Pom that had epilepsy also.  Two things I recommend.  One, change food.  Two, go to the health food store and get some Super Blue Green Algae.  My last Pom developed epilepsy.  I had never had one to do that before.  When I changed her food and put her on the algie, she did not have any more problems.  The Pom I now have developed the same symptoms.  I changed her food and she has not had any more trouble.  Good luck with your baby.

I just learned my Pomeranian has epilepsy. I will be changing his food immediately but I would like to supplement his meals with Super Blue Green Algae.
He is 4 lbs, what dose of Algea should I give him a day with his meals? JJ's message said Agea and a change of food could help him.
I'm hoping this works. I'm very concerned with the medication vets have for dogs with this condition.
My Pomeranian is only 3 years old and I adore him.

Thank you,
Please help,

My little toy pom just had a seizure last night.  He is 6 months old and 3.5 lbs.  He's healthy and happy.  However last night he let out a strange yelp (while playing with another small dog) and I looked over and he was on the floor.  I picked him up and thought he was dead.  HE was stiff- his legs out, and his head stiff too.  His eyes were not moving and totaly dead seeming.  It was the scariest moment of my life.  In about 4 minutes (I think) he started to relax and then seemed dazed but alive.  I rushed him to the vet- and on the way he was breathing all funny.  When we got there he seemed fine and did his tricks for some treats.  

The vet thinks its epilepsy.  He hasn't suggested med's yet- says to keep an eye on it.  I would love any more info on this from ANYONE!!!!!

I have a pom with epilepsy too.  We started with the half tablet morning and night but he had breakthrough seizures after a month so they pped it to one tablet, morning and night.  Just this week he has had two days where he has had a seizure in the morning.  Please tell me more about the food I can use.  It's so sad.  he's my baby and I feel so bad for him.  the vet says I probably feel worse than him though, so I guess that's some consolation.
