Thankfully Tuck is still going strong (10yo now!). Still has seizures fairly often, and now needs an inhaler for a lung disease--but the angels here have held Tuck in their hearts since 2004, and have always made sure he can get his seizure meds.
My other little guy, Justice, is also an epileptic and a PIN here- the angels hold both boys tightly in their wings, and never let them fall.
"Tucker's mom" Cindy
So sorry - I did not mean to talk in the past tense! You are such a good Mom! I am just curious if Tucker is on a grain free diet? I'm sorry that I haven't followed his thread - or any others... A long time ago, one of the cats, Catina, taught me about the importance of diet - and particularly avoiding gluten - one of the proteins found in wheat and other grains. A few years ago, I found out that I am also gluten-intolerant and by avoiding it (as well as all dairy products) my health has improved greatly. Once again, the cats led me to something that has helped me get better - it started with Oscar, in 2002, who's ringworm that I contracted, led to my round-about diagnosis of Hepatitis C.
There are many articles that link these proteins to seizures and epiliepsy in pets. Sorry if I am telling you something that you already know.. All of my babies are on grain free diets as a kind of preventative nutrition - but again, sorry if I am preaching to the choir. I am so glad that more and more folks are leaning towards healthy diets these days - and finally, there is a much wider selection out there to choose from!
Diet and Canine Epilepsy
Anyway, I don't think Panda would mind if I hijacked her thread if it might help another creature - I know that she is okay now and I will be too - it will just take a bit more time - she has left a tremendous void in my life and in my heart.
Thanks so much again Cindy for your kind words - and hugs and kisses to Tucker and Justice! Take care,
Chris and the kitties
