My puppy is a Epileptic and Anemic. I am trying to get opinions on a Great food or vitamin that I can feed him to help with his Iron and to give him all the nutrition he needs. I have read that the key nutrition that appear deficient in epileptics are vitamins, calcium, zinc, taurine and magnesium. I live in a small town so Wal-Mart doesnt give a big varitey of foods. Right now I have him on Pedigree....Can someone please give me some names or brands??
I have seen the Adult Multivitamin at Wal-Mart but I am unsure on whether or not to give it to my puppy. Any information is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

Do you have a feed store? That's usually the place to find really great foods in a small town. Stay away from ANYTHING sold at Walmart of Grocery stores. Good brands include Solid Gold, Wellness, Natural Balance, Even Diamond makes better food than you find in Walmart. There are also other alternatives such as raw diets and home cooked. If you're going to give a vitamin, go with something such as Nutra Cal.

Have you heard of the food Innova? I read that is good for epileptic dogs b/c it has no artifical flavoring and the list of nutrients is unbelievable....
I would love to cook him home cooked meals but you hear so many things that dogs cant eat....like, I love Cabbage but I heard that it is not good for dogs...

Thank you for your help!!! I am really and truely so greatful for all and any advice!

God Bless! :D

Innova is a good solid food, what breed is he? If he's a large breed you want to watch your protein content and go with the large breed puppy. You shouldn't need to supplement as much with it either.

As far as Home Cooked, there are some GREAT yahoo groups that give solid info on doing it properly, just as there are some great Raw groups out there.
