Thanks Sandy

You do what works and you cant be timid to try when what you are doing is completely not working

Another thing I do want to add jesses epilepsy has not returned in almost 4 years. Seizures and anxiety are gone ( knock on wood ) I find this odd for a dog that has had epilepsy since she was a puppy

It was a gradual process as seizures became less and less over a couple years . Cant find anything about a dog getting older and a decline and complete remission in seizures .

Maybe diet, maybe a higher sugar than normal in the brain . Who knows It would be nice to know and maybe helpful for others and with jesse being one of a kind it makes it difficult to draw any conclusions

I do think the one meal is helpful for her pancreas not being in a constant point of digestion taking some pressure off that organ as she did have a bad case of pancreatitis at the beginning of this adventure

So for her being at the upper end of a beagle lifespan maybe what we are doing has had some benefit .
