My dog has both epilepsy and spay incontinence. For the spay incontinence, she is on a pink pill called stilbestrol ( a type of estrogen) It is very effective and so far no side effects but I am concerned about the dye they must be using for the color of the pill and that it might be a seizure trigger. Does anyone have info about this (or info about stilbestrol without artificial coloring)

I have a Shih Tzu x Maltese that started having seizures when he was four years old. Even with all the tests I had done, they do not really know what is causing it. He had them about once a month for a couple of years but unless they came closer the Vet did not want to put him on anything.

A couple of years ago he had a cluster of seizures when we were in town and I took him right to the Vet. They gave him rectal atavan and they gave me some to take home. I have only had to use it once, then in 2014, he stopped having any seizures. He was 8 years old last October and even though the Vet said they usually do not stop having seizures once they start, he seems to have not had any.

I compete in Agility with him and he as never had any problems. The seizures he did have were usually at night, never while competing or running around.

Maybe ask your Vet about the rectal atavan. It is really easy to use, you just take a syringe without the needle and insert the liquid in their rectum. The drugs they use for seizures is much improved but once you start giving it, I think you have to continue on with it.
