Has anyone had a Boston Terrier Dog with Epilepsy?


Here is a Question from Gariann asking other Boston Terrier owners about epilepsy.

She says : “Has anyone here had or have a Boston with epilepsy? My dog was just diagnosed she is 3. Besides meds has anything worked for your pup? I want to do whatever I can to help her have a long healthy life.”

Does anyone have any thoughts, experiences or recommendations? 🙂

Here is Watson! 🙂

I had one and he lived to be 14 and died of congestive heart failure. He would come to me when he felt one coming on and I just held him until it was over. He took meds for awhile but later in his life when I retired and I wasn’t so stressed out his seizures stopped. We figured out that my stress was his trigger for the seizures.

CBD oil has proven to help stop it. My bro in law gives it to his dog when she gets seizures and it stops immediately.

Obi had seizures. They started after he was hit by a car. We gave him gabapentin and it worked well. I hated seeing him have them. Worst thing ever.

One of our Bostons has seizures. Started with one, and didn’t have another for close to a year. Then she had another one, and then five in a 24 hour period. Our vet put her on phenobarbital twice a day. This was a year ago, and she has only had one seizure during that period. She is 7.

We found out1 1/2 years ago our Jake has it. When we take him for shots we have to give him Benadryl , etc. he takes pills 3 times a day. Only time he had seizure is when we take him to vet

Blaze had epilepsy, I learned to hold him and just talk softly and calmly during seizure. We had pills to give him for high stress times (fireworks for example). He was great pup and lived to 14
