Most of you know that my boy has epilepsy. It first appeared I believe when he was 4 years of age. Since then I've learned alot about the disease. I changed his diet from "dog food" to "real food" and he hadn't had a food related seizure since. He does have seizures rarely if woken from a deep sleep and sent into action before he is awake; I've written about this often.
I have looked into food related seizures and found that Rosemary could be a trigger. I had not been able to pinpoint the ingredient in anything when he had had a food related seizure. That is until now; the other day I got some new treat samples. They were all natural, great. Only hours after feeding them Luke had a seizure; its been a very longtime since he has had one. I didn't know why this happened and was really stumped at the possible cause.
I read the ingredients yesterday and sure enough; Rosemary is one of the ingredients. It was the treats and he reacted very quickly to it. So now I must make sure that Rosemary is not an ingredient is treats that I give him. Although I hate it when he has a seizure I was very happy to finally find a true trigger.
