Fits in dog

My 8 year old boxer has begun having fits. This is not as severe as the true epileptic cases I have been reading where they are severe and only last a few minuetes. He does do the classic thing and seek my attention prior to them starting, sometimes he looses control of his bladder, intense fatigue, lack of stability, trips over, can't coordinate limbs. His body does go into spasms and twitches affecting head and down through his limbs. He is too scared to move. There are periods of time where there are no convulsions, however the time when he is totally free of convulsions can be up to an hour or so. He foams in the mouth while it is happening and he is usually fully recovered in about 2 hours. He has just had one now, he had one 2 days ago, and the previous month he had 3. He has been to the vet and the next stage would be to give him preventative medicine, however I was to try remedies first before confusing his picture. Any help please?

Hi-

I had this problem with my dog. Many times the cause of this
is worms. Has the vet tested for worms? Bc my vet did not and I would
do this first if it has not been done.

Hi Thanks for your reply, yes his worming is up to date, he went to the vet again today and they want to start him on medication if it continues. Ideally I'd like to give him a remedy, if not possible to cure but at least so he comes out of seizure quickly. So many side effects on the medication they are offering.

Took him for a short walk earlier, he was very happy to go. Half way through 5 mins later he became weak, with drunk legs and collapsed in the mud. Although this wasn't a true epileptic fit today, on excursion he becomes abnormally weak, with dizzy moments and disorientated. Today was his worst.

Hi Roxie,

My opinion here-

Give Belladonna 200c liquid during a fit. Buy the liquid and squirt 3 to 4 drops into
the mouth at 15 minute intervals until the fit is over. Then go to using 2 to 4 drops
4 times a day for a week. If the dog is not having a fit but becomes aggravated
from a dose of Belladonna then stop giving it. Just give when symptoms return. (Belladonna
30c would be at Whole Foods and Health stores that have remedies) You can try with that
but it will be pills. So dissolve 3 pills into 1.4 cup of water in a water bottle. Then
Get a dropper to use. Meanwhile order the 200c( you can order off this site Remedies
Shop) And there is also a service called Homeopathy Overnight you could use.

If you use the neuroplex herbals or homeopathic- then stop using the belladonna.
I don't know what is in the neuroplex herbs or homeo - you have to ask.

There are many causes of this- not easy to find out- from neck joint damage to liver problems etc.

My plan if I had to do this all over again-

A. Find a Vet that has the homeopathy training and uses it. The ideal situation is that the chronic overall state of Roxie is
seen and this is always most accurate in person.
B.I would not do this case on an online forum.
C. I saw two products that I think may be useful.

The neuroplex tabs and herbs ( but this is a continuing treatment) however it seems to work well, tons of testimonials

The enzymes for health-seems to be a more core build up of immunity so then there is no problem in the first place.

To recap: Try the belladonna now.
Order the two other products.
Find a vet trained in homeopathy to work with you.
