Fits-What Causes-Can you tell me what to do with a dog that has fits? Will one kind of food cause them? I have fed him meal cakes most of the time. If you think this causes them, tell me what to feed him to stop them. Will worms cause them; if so, is gun powder good for worms? I think he has internal canker of the ear; would this cause them? I am treating his ears by using olive oil, and I wash the ear with warm water then put a few drops of nitrate of silver in five grains to the ounce of water.
Fits in dogs may be caused from numerous reasons-intestinal parasites, probably tape worm, is the usual cause. Over-feeding on too heating foods, such as you have been feeding on, may be the real cause in your case. Over-feeding on too heating foods, such as you have been feeding on, may be the real cause in your case. Meal cakes are very heating and if fed in excess are apt to bring on various ailments, especially if necessary exercise is not given. Table scraps, milk in all forms, meat broth thickened with oat meal, rice, etc., and above all some lean raw beef should be given to put system in proper order. Then, too, bone is a necessity. A large joint bone (beef) should be procured about once a week and given the dog to gnaw at; this will keep the teeth in good condition and supply the necessary none food for a dog. Gun powder is of absolutely of no use in ridding a dog of worms. Olive oil usually relieves the pain in the ear when canker is the cause, but has no curing properties and by use of nitrate of silver the hearing may be destroyed. For either worms, or canker, the better plan is to use approved reliable remedies as advertised in H-T-T.
