          Comments about Doc Ackerman's Epilepsy & Seizure Formula:

          My rescue long-haired Chihuahua began having severe seizures with her waking up in the middle of the night with a seizure, screeching and losing bladder and bowel control. It would take an hour for her to stop trembling, she could not walk for several hours afterwards. I had been giving her Benadryl because of her severe sinus issues. I researched and found she might be allergic to the corn in her food. I switched to corn and grain free Blue wet food and dry which cleared up her sinus issues. I started giving her Doc Ackerman's Seizure formula every morning and her seizures became less intensive, with her recovering within ten minutes. After several weeks, the few seizures she has had did not result in loss of bladder control. She looks and acts like she used to. THANK YOU!!!!!!

            I can not tell you how please that I am with product. My Australian Shepherd would be fine oneday then have cluster seizures the next. The vet issued Phenobarb, which made her so spaced out and would still have seizures on occasions. She is active now, feels great, plays. I simply sprinkle the 1 tblsp of this product over her food, add a egg to moisten the product. No more seizures!!! I am estatic. Thank you for producing this super alternative.

              Comments about Doc Ackerman's Epilepsy & Seizure Formula:

              I had really high expectations for this product and just wish it had lived up to them . My Chihuahua is a rescue and we got her when she was about 2, a year ago . Since we had her she started having fits which lasted around 15 mminutes with quick recovery. As she was only having them once every 2 to 3 months we thought we would try this before trying normal meds as I had read all the really positive reviews about this one and all the potential side effects with mainstream meds . A couple of months ago she had 3 seizures in a month and a cluster seizure which lasted around 80 minutes so we started using this around 11 weeks ago . After first administrating it , she had two seizures that we weren't present for . She was then 9 weeks seizure free so it started looking really promising then unfortunately she suffered from another cluster seizure which lasted around 80 minutes until I got her to the vet where they gave her diazepam.
              I am quite upset that unfortunately this medication could not help her with the dangerous clusters and that we are now left with no option but to put her on mainstream meds.
              Other aspects of the product : it was really easy to administer : I put it on her food religiously everyday , twice a day and she always ate it without any problems . I didn't notice any major side effects although I have noticed she does wee a lot more and she has a bit more energy. I hope this review is useful to others and I am definitely pleased I gave this medication a go before putting her straight onto mainstream medication . It was worth a shot .

                  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.
