Seizures in dogs & cats
Although seizures are often thought of as dramatic events, there are a number of different types of seizures, some of which may appear to be quite subtle.
A generalized seizure (Also known as grand mal seizure, fit or convulsion) generally causes a sudden decrease in state of consciousness, repeated movements of the body due to uncontrolled muscle contractions, excessive salivation, vomiting and often a loss of bladder and bowel control. This event may last from 30 seconds to a few minutes. It is generally followed by a period of drowsiness, difficulty walking or seeing, as well as changes in behaviour which can last around 24 hours. This is known as the "Post-Ictal" period.
The other main type of seizure is a focal motor seizure which is a much less dramatic occurrence. A focal motor seizure will cause just a repeated twitching movement in either the face or limbs and usually only lasts a few seconds. These type of seizures may often go unnoticed especially if they involve fairly innocuous movements like swallowing.
Seizures occur because of a change in the electrical activity of the brain. This can be caused by a variety of things including diseases of the nervous system and the brain itself such as epilepsy. Seizures may also be the result of an injury to the head, a tumour in the brain, toxic chemicals, poisons, very high fever and even nutrient deficiencies such as calcium deficiency in nursing mothers. Diabetic pets will seizure or 'fit' when their glucose levels drop too low.
Treatment for seizures is directed at the underlying cause or disease in cases where this is known. Anti-epileptic drugs such as Phenobarbital are commonly used to prevent seizures which are severe or occur frequently. Potassium bromide is also used to control seizure activity in pets that don’t respond to Phenobarbital or who show signs of over-sedation on doses of phenobarb. In the case of continued, repeated seizures your vet may treat your pet with intravenous valium and even put your pet under anaesthetic in order to stop the abnormal electrical activity that is happening in your pet’s brain.
It is important to seek medical care for your pet if he/she has more than one seizure per month, has changed behaviour in between the seizures (excluding the “Post-ictal” period directly after the seizure) or becomes generally lethargic, has difficulty in walking or refuses food. Seek urgent veterinary attention in the case of your pet seizuring continuously.
The natural way
Many herbs and natural homeopathic remedies can safely and effectively support your pet’s general health and help to reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures, thus eliminating or reducing the need for prescription drugs for epilepsy and seizure disorders in pets.
A holistic approach to your pet’s condition is the best approach: feed a well-balanced natural diet and ensure that your pet has plenty of regular exercise, while supplementing with natural medicines for optimal health.
It is also important to ensure that your dog or cat has a safe environment to avoid injury should seizures occur. This would include making sure that swimming pools have safety nets and that stairs are secured with safety gates to prevent falls during a seizure. Reducing stress is also an important factor in helping to reduce seizures - as stress is a known trigger for a seizure.

How has EaseSure helped others?
"I ordered your EaseSure remedy online out of sheer desperation for my poor Labrador, Gigi. She had been on Phenobarb for quite some time for her seizures and not only was she still having seizures, the side-effects of the drug caused her to appear permanently sedated. On top of that, the Phenobarb made her constantly ravenous and she ended up putting on quite a bit of weight- easy for a Lab! After speaking to my vet about my dissatisfaction I put her on EaseSure as well as the PhenoBarb. She has not had a seizure since then and my vet has been able to lower her dosage of Phenobarb to the extent that the side-effects are far more manageable. I am really pleased to have found this natural addition to my Lab’s medication that has improved her quality of life so much- thank you from both of us!" Eileen P.
"Several months ago my 3 year old cat began having seizures and boy, was it a scary experience. I felt so helpless and my heart bled for him as he would be like a zombie for the rest of the day, obviously with no idea of what had happened. I bought your EaseSure remedy as I have always preferred the natural approach and it has really helped him. When he does have a seizure (which is much more seldom these days) I put EaseSure in his mouth with a squirter-bottle and the fit seems to resolve much quicker and he is completely himself again within a few hours. Thanks for such a great product- I have stocked up on it!" - Sharon
"This is an excellent product. It really works. My dog started having seizures at 5 years old. They were very serious cluster seizures. He was put on phenobarb and potossium bromide. This made him both sick and extremely drugged. I came across Easesure and decided to give it a try. I bought one bottle to start, only wishing I bought the buy three get one free pkg because that is a better deal. The first two weeks I gave this product three times a day, 10 drops [large dog] mixed in a teaspoon of honey. During this time I started cutting back on the vet meds. So far NO SEIZURES! My dog is on only one phenobarb a day now and two doses of Easesure, 8 drops each. I am planning to cut that last phenobarb in half next week until he is off of it. I will keep you informed as to his progress. I highly recommend this product. I worked for 11 years in a vets office." - Sandy
BIG THANKS! We have a 9 week old Dockie who has been having seizures for about 3 weeks on an almost constant basis. With all due respect to our vet and the meds prescribed she still had seizures. I sent for your Easesure and in 30 minutes she was up and around. She still gets some but not as often nor severe. We have since purchased other products and passed the word out to our petloving friends. Again I must say KUDOS!" - Orlando, Florida
