The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Epilepsy in Cats

Hi. I'm new to the forum, but not to ABC website. I was reading some old postings about different remedies for epilepsy and wondered if anyone on the site has had experience with seizures in CATS (and using homeopathy to heal)? I've been working with someone in NY who suggested Valeriana and Aconitum. These, with energy work and diet, shifted the seizures from every 10 days to 1 x month. Thankfully, they are petit mal and I am there with her most of the time so I can help her through them. My vet is hesitant to prescribe medication due to side effects. I believe have an opportunity to use alternatives due to the fact the seizures are short and homeopathy is working so far. I would be grateful is anyone can help me understand how I can help my cat further and stop the seizures completely? (EVen with conventional meds, the vets tell me the seizures will not stop.) Thank you! Sincerely, FMBK916

Thank you for your response. Not sure I can answer everything but here is what I can answer: cat is 4 1/2; seizures started in April '08 (age 3 3/4) when I came out of hospital...ended up in ER. Vet thinks seizures triggered by that trauma as I was there for 2 weeks. Seizures began night I came home. Triggers seemed to be 'shock' as when neighbor picked her up (doesn't like that) and went into seizure. Other times, cannot be specific. I do look out for such things (practitioner myself. Not homeopathy though.) Last seizure was while she slept. Symptoms: when I see onset, she whines (cries) and goes in circles, confused. Body goes rigid, legs stick out and shake. Salivates from mouth and if lying on couch, falls off. Lasts only seconds; comes out dazed and disorientated. Cries out and after a while is very hungry. Now, I catch it early and hold points along her spine and below neck. Seizures stop immediately (mostly.) I talk softly to her, assuringly and help her when she comes out of it. She does not cry out when I can catch it early. Hope this helps. Thank you again.

Seizures can occur as a reaction to medication, allergies, toxins, other
diseases, fevers and anything else that disturbs brain function. These
seizures are sometimes referred to as reactive seizures or secondary
seizures.

Another cause of seizures is anatomical or structural disease in the brain. This can be from a brain tumor, hydrocephalus (inadequate drainage of fluid in the skull),bleeding in the brain, circulatory problems in the brain and other structural or anatomical problems.


Seizures can also be the result of magnesium deficiency, hypoglycemia(which mimics epilepsy),hypothyroidism, and a deficiency of Vitamin B6.


If not caused by one of the above reasons the Bach Flower Essence, Rescue Remedy had been known to stop a pending seizure in its tracks.

MSM(Methylsulfonylmethane) permanently cured a dog(in three days) who was having 30-40 seizures a day.It's available at any health food store in tablet form and it doesn't have to be given once the seizures stop.

Crushed sunflower seeds(shelled) added to some canned pet food also works extremely well. It has permanently stopped recurrent seizures in a wide variety of pets.

Thank you, Orian. My cat was tested extensively for all sorts of issues when seizures began. All tests came back negative. (I focused on thyroid too.) Interesting about B6 as she does like her food but does not always seem satisfied. Someone suggested B6, so I must consider that now. I work with Bach Remedies and will also consider Rescue Remedy. Interesting about MSM...I know it well. Thank you for your help. Very grateful to you and John Stanton for your help and suggestions.
