Seizure Disorders
in Cats

Most pet owners probably don’t know this, but cats can have seizures just like humans. Few things are worse than seeing your usually happy-go-lucky kitty suddenly flop to the ground and tread water that isn’t even there, but for some cats, this is their reality.

Sometimes a cat will exhibit behavior changes shortly before a seizure, such as pacing, circling, yowling or vomiting. After the seizure, your cat will be disoriented, may show temporary paralysis in one or more legs, seem blind, vomit, or show other behavior changes. These changes are usually short-lived, although it may take several days before your cat seems completely “normal” again.

What are the Phases
in a Seizure?

1

Pre-Seizure Phase

The pre-seizure phase is commonly called the aura. Your cat may appear restless, pace, seek affection, salivate, meow, or hide. These signs occur just minutes before the actual seizure begins.

2

Ictus

The seizure itself is called ictus. Your cat may appear excited, vomit, salivate, run in circles, collapse, and have uncoordinated muscle activity. This stage generally lasts less than 5 minutes.

3

Post-Ictal Phase

After the seizure, the recovery (post-ictal) period begins. Your cat may seem disoriented, uncoordinated, and occasionally blind (temporary). This may last several minutes to days.

How is Epilepsy in Cats
Treated?

Treatment for epilepsy is usually not begun until a seizure is severe or multiple seizures have occurred and a pattern is observed. It is very important to know the pattern of seizures in your cat so your veterinarian can determine if the treatment is helping.

The goal of the treatment is to decrease the frequency, severity, and duration of the seizures.

Medications used to treat epilepsy are given orally. Your veterinarian may need to try different types or combinations to find what will be right for your cat. Many cats will become sleepy when they first start medication, but this soon wears off after several weeks.

SKU: SSHE01. Categories: , .

This is a very good concoction that really may help with the control of seizure symptoms either with or without conventional seizure medication. I can get behind this herbal tincture. I recommend adding this to a supplement regime of Buplerum, Kava, Bacopa, and Bo Tree.

Product Description

Seizure System Support is a 100% herbal remedy specifically formulated to provide comprehensive, natural support to dogs & cats suffering from symptoms of seizures.  The herbs present in Seizure System Support help to soothe, strengthen and stabilize the nervous system and brain for reduced frequency and intensity of symptoms.  Seizure System Support provides an immediate calming effect that can help to ease anxiety and nervous tension in high strung pets, and long term use offers unique benefits in improving brain and nervous system health over time.  Seizure System Support is well tolerated without unpleasant side effects.

Many pets worldwide suffer from seizures and seizure-related conditions such as epilepsy.  While the underlying cause of these disorders is often unknown, many practitioners believe that factors such as stress, diet and even breed can contribute to the development of seizure-related disorders.  It can be very upsetting to witness a beloved pet experience a seizure, so many pet owners naturally look for ways to prevent or reduce such symptoms.  While conventional anticonvulsant drugs are an option, many animals do not tolerate these medicines well and side effects are common.

Stress is considered to be one of the main contributing factors in the triggering of seizures in pets.  Most pet owners with epileptic pets will recognize this, as episodes tend to occur after tense or anxious situations.  Any source of stress, from a trip in the car to an encounter with the neighbor’s aggressive dog, can put a strain on the nervous system and initiate a seizure in vulnerable animals.  For this reason, stress management and reduction can be a very effective method of controlling the frequency and intensity of seizure symptoms.  Relieving and minimizing stress is also one of the best ways to ensure general health and vitality, as stress can negatively impact immunity, digestion and overall well-being.

Ingredients

Seizure Relief contains a proprietary blend of the following herbs in a therapeutic dosage:

Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata) has been used by herbalists for centuries to soothe, strengthen and stabilize the nervous system.  Passionflower contains a number of alkaloids, glycosides and flavonoids that are believed to be responsible for the herb’s therapeutic qualities.  Herbalists often prescribe Passionflower to tonify or strengthen the health of the nervous system with regular use.  Passionflower also has a gentle calming effect that can benefit pets suffering from anxiety or stress.

Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) is typically used to restore the balanced and healthy function of the nervous system, especially when anxiety, tension and stress have overstimulated the nerves.  Skullcap was given traditionally to help reduce spasms and other symptoms of Epilepsy.  Skullcap serves to gently and safely ease the mind and reduce nervousness.

Oatstraw (Avena sativa) is a gentle, nutritive herb that historically was given to relieve symptoms of epilepsy.  Oatstraw often benefits animals with excess nervous energy, tension and anxiety.  This calming, balancing herb has also been used to promote longevity in India’s Ayurvedic tradition of medicine.

Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is a mild sedative herb that has been used medicinally for at least 2,000 years.  Valerian is considered to have anxiolytic properties, meaning that it can be very effective in reducing anxiety or stress.  Valerian has also been used traditionally to help with insomnia, restlessness and spasms.

St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) provides gentle and lasting support to the nervous system and brain.  St. John’s Wort has been used for a variety of nervous system disorders, to ease tension, restlessness and stress.  St. John’s Wort is classified as a nerve tonic for its ability to improve nervous system health with regular use.

Inactive ingredients are Purified Water, USP Cane Ethanol Alcohol 20%, USP Vegetable Glycerin.
