    Limited Effect in Severer Seizure Cases

      Comments about Doc Ackerman's Epilepsy & Seizure Formula:

      Review is aimed towards those already familiar with seizure symptoms and have done some research to know what its about. Our 4yr/23lb mini-schnauzer started his seizures early in Jan'14. Initially, his were the classic cluster episodes but eventually progressed into more frequent and severe seizing ending in tong biting, etc., etc., after 9-mon's.

      Our veterinarian of 15yrs who specializes in small breeds claimed some success with Doc Ackerman's ESF formula. The harsher prescription drug phenobarbital, although, historically rather effective in stopping seizures will do eventual damage to the kidneys-liver so enzyme monitoring is recommended 2-3 times per year--pet costs go up?

      Initially, I started him on 2 (two) teaspoons of ESF per day. One tsp. in the AM feeding and the other in the PM feeding. Our doctor told us the results would not be immediate because it would require 6-8wks to buildup in his system before noticing any change. Within 3-wks we noticed the seizures were much less intense and his recovery was shorter. However, we still averaged one seizure per wk. I emailed the manufacturer of ESF who responded immediately with a recommendation to increase the dosage to 3 teaspoons per day. Over the course of 7-wks seizure frequence went down to one seizure every 2-wks with quick recovery and no noticable side-effects. We continued dosing with a second jar of ESF but never seen any improvment beyond that. Emailing the manufacturer again we concluded our dog might be better off going the phenobarbital route--which we did.

      I will say the company that makes this ESF product was most helpful and responsive in helping me to diagnosis incremental progress of our pet using the formula. They totally stand behind what they sell. I believe its a good product but may not work in severer seizure cases. -Thanks Doc Ackerman

        Comments about Doc Ackerman's Epilepsy & Seizure Formula:

        My 4 yr old Lab mix, Rufus had his first seizure in April 2014. It was a short one and having had dogs all my life, I thought probably just a one time thing. In June he had another one, just a little longer. In August he had another one and unlike the others, it lasted almost an hour. I was all by myself and had no way at that time to get him to the vet and I thought he was going to die. He came out of it and immediately returned to his usual self. I got on line to read about dog seizures, and found this product and read the reviews. So many people suggested trying it before using the Vet's medicine, so I ordered it and I'm so glad I did. I started the med on August 16 and on August 23, he did have another seizure but it was only about 3 or 4 minutes long. It is the end of Oct now and he has not had any more seizures. He had one aura this month but it did not progress into a seizure. Not only has it helped his seizures, but he seems more alert and playful. He is a huge 115 pounds. I think he has a little Great Dane mixed in. I give him 1 1/2 Tablespoons of the powdered med every night mixed in with 1/2 a can of dog food. He loves it. Licks the bowl clean. It is like a treat since he only gets dry food the rest of the time. I'm so glad it works, not only for him but for me and my daughter too because his seizures are the type that start, by him running until he hits a wall and then collapses into a seizure. 115 pounds of dog running blindly through the house is not safe for any of us. I wish you all the best with your pet.

          I have been using this product for 2 years as an alternative to phenobarbital. It works for my little 14 year old yorkie. I only use half the recommended dose but when signs of mild seizure activity appear I give the full amount. I am on my 4th jar. I am so grateful for this product and this website!

            This product is absolutely amazing!! My 4 yr. old dachshund started having seizures at the age of 2. He only had one every 3 months or so & they were mild. About 3 months ago the severity & time in between them increased dramatically. He also started having cluster seizures. I didn't want to put him on the meds from the vet. I started searching the internet & came across this product. I'm so glad I found this!! Tomorrow will be 10 weeks since I started giving him this supplement. He hasn't had even one seizure since!! Not even a mild one!! I wil NEVER be without this product!! It's very easy to use.....I sprinkle half a teaspoon on his dry food morning & night. He doesn't mind it at all.

                  I looked up the ingredients and they are great on their own. If your pet is on phenobarbital I discovered 2 of the ingredients can alter the effectiveness of the meds. My vet confirmed. My mini schnauzer is having cluster seizures on a weekly basis and they suddenly started two weeks ago. I wanted to try this first before going the other route. I'm crossing my fingers and praying that it works.

                    Comments about Doc Ackerman's Epilepsy & Seizure Formula:

                    I don't have anything negative to say about the
                    product. It's a life saver. I tried some kind of
                    drops for a year and pom was still getting a
                    seizure every 7-14 days! She's ten. When i first
                    gave her Doc Ackermans she went almost a month free the first time. Then she went 3 whole months,
                    and now it is another 3 whole months 88 days now to be exact. I find it very easy to give her, and
                    yes she is picky. I mix it with a tiny bit of
                    milk or more especially half & half and then put
                    in a tiny bit, 1/8 spoon ful of malted milk
                    powder to sweeten it up. Most times she laps it
                    up, but being so picky if she won't then i just
                    pour it into a baby spoon, put her head up a bit,
                    pull back her lips and very slowly dribble it
                    into her mouth being careful she doesn't choke.
                    Must go slow. That's the best way I'm supposed to
                    give her 2 ts but only give 1 ts and it's keeping
                    the seizures away for 3 months at a time. She
                    started having them when i put flea drops on her.
                    The next day she had a seizure. I use natural
                    now. No more poisons. I like to order 2 jars of
                    Doc Ackermans at a time so i never run out.

                    My dog began having violent seizures lasting up to 15 minutes. After administering this product, he only had one mild one that lasted about 7 seconds.
                    Three weeks on this and counting. So far, so good!

                    My sweet 17 year old cat, who I've had since I was six years old began experiencing siezures at the beginning of the year. I did my research and came across this product and thought I would give it a try. I've been giving it to my kitty for about two months now and she's had no seizures!! I was very pleased with this product, it's cheap, gentle and so far, it's working for us!! Thanks so much for making an inexpensive product, when there are so many out there that are a total rip off. I can't afford to take her to the vet and it was killing me to see her suffer. This was an answer to a prayer!
