I read a story years ago about a GSD that had constant seizures and the owner decided to put the dog down.
When he went to the vet they decided to try something in the thinking that gluten was the cause of the seizures. Gluten builds up in the brain of an intolerant patient and the seizure is the body’s way of ridding itself of the gluten.
This dog was put on a gluten free diet and thrived – n0 more seizures.
Unfortunately months later a neighbor gave the dog a piece of toast when it came for a visit. The dog later had a seizure causing it to run in the street and get hit by a car and did not survive.
This is the vet that helped this dog.
