  1. Golden Retrievers with Seizures
    Has anyone had any success with treating seizures using herbal treatments? I'm sure the specific type of herbal remedy will need to be individualized, guess I'm just wondering if there's any hope out there... Our Barley boy was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy (unknown or most likely...

    We have an almost 5 year old female golden-our 5th golden over all. She has been the oddest pup from day one. Did not tolerate her puppy food well and after months of diarrhea and limiting her diet to boiled chicken and rice we finally were able to move her to a limited ingredient food and...
  3. Golden Retrievers with Seizures
    I've searched and found nothing new so perhaps I can coax someone to share their successes. Boomer is a neutered male approaching 19 months old and is normal in all ways, except epilepsy. I would like to think I've seen all of his seizures but of course I've not been with hi 24/7. As far as I've...

  5. Golden Retriever - You've Adopted or Rescued
    I joined this forum several months ago, but am not sure if I ever introduced Rusty. A breeder in NC rescued him from a neglectful place where he was kept outside all of the time and not cared for. I got him from her and brought him home to Georgia and it's been a wild ride ever since. We had...

    Good afternoon, I'm writing because my partner and I learned last week that our Buddy has a pre-frontal meningioma. We are told it is the size of a large grape and I believe the vet mentioned it was near his olfactory lobe. It is operable. He was perfectly fine and normal, at a puppy-like 9...

    My 2 year old golden, Moses, just recently had a seizure. We took him to the vet and they just looked him over and said he seemed fine...if it happened again, we'll do blood work. 9 days later it happened again. (They lasted about 30 seconds each time) We did blood work and everything came...

    My 9-yr-old GR had her first seizure the other day, and I took her to the vet. He did all of the blood tests, including the T-4 for her thyroid. He told me that anything over 1.0 was "normal." Roxy's number is 1.2-- barely in the normal range. We decided to just watch her... She had another...

    Last fall I posted in the new members forum about Lana, our elderly golden who was displaying symptoms of a brain tumor. She had seizures, weakness in her back legs and was wobbly. Prior to developing these symptoms late last summer, Lana was a healthy girl. She loved to swim, run and play...

    Our 8 1/2 year old golden, Cecilia, had her first seizure about a year ago. took her to the vet and he said its probably seizures and we put her on potassium bromide twice a day. The tricky part is, I don't recall my vet suggesting a thyroid work up. We had weight issues with her and were...

    Banjo, my 5 year old GR baby, has been having seizures about every 3 month for a year. Last week he had 3 in 24 hours and 3 days later 3 mini episodes and one major in 24 hours. Extremely scary! Our vet ran the full battery of tests to rule out low thyroid, low blood sugar and other issues...
