Are you seeing the info ?
Dr. Michael Salkin is typing. Please be patient. I have 50 years of experience in canine, feline, avian, rodent, and rabbit medicine and surgery.

Ok

The active ingredient in that product is hydrosulfite and large doses can cause seizures. I can't see when you initially posted. May I have an update on your dog, please?

Regardless of the cause, your golden has clustered - more than one seizure in a 24 hour period and clustering can presage status epilepticus - the state in which seizure activity doesn't abate unless I heavily sedate or anesthetize my patient. He needs the attention of a vet at your earliest convenience.

Please respond with additional questions and concerns if you wish.

Customer
On the way to er vet. Thank you for responding though

That's smart. If you need clarification on anything I've posted or have additional questions or concerns after his vet visit, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope I were able to answer your question satisfactorily. If you would like to ask me another question in the future, you can add me as a favorite expert. You'll have the option to do that on your "My Questions" page if you choose to rate our interaction or you can request me by name if you wish: Dr. Michael Salkin.

My best to your golden!

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer. It was my pleasure assisting you.
