We recently had an individual contact us to see if we could do anyting about his four year old boxer having seizures. After referring to our experts, some good information about possible environmental influences was revealed to us that we decided to share.
Myoclonic jerks and spasms often occur as the result of calcium deficiencies which can result from various reasons. Lead, strontium, aluminum, barium, nickel, and a few other metals antagonize calcium absorption. Mercury poisoning has also been associated with neurological symptoms resulting in seizures. Manganese poisoning has also been implicated in said seizures. Treatments would depend on which scenario is revealed the source of said possibilities.
Something so small can lead to something so large...
