: My JRT Luigi has been having what appears to be seizures once a month for the last year. My vet examined him and found no organ disfunction which leads us to believe it may be epilepsy. The seizures last for about 5 minutes and include him being very stiff, having a dazed look in his eye, and leg biting. Are there any alternative treatments besides phenobarbitol?

My Tyson has no ill effect from this because I have the levels checked and he also has no liver problems. He is no 9 going on 10 and you would never know that he is Epileptic. How your dog reacts to the drug at first you may see some slow down, I did not and he has never slowed down.
PS sorry if there are any typo's or mistakes in this, but I am doing this one fingered because of a bum right wirst and can't use my right hand to type.
