Seizures

by Donna Bryan
(Palestine, Tx.)

Jasper, our beautiful 2 yr. old Pyrenees/Anatolian, has seizures. He takes 194mg. of Phenobarbital, daily. He weighs 122 lbs.. He is, truly, a gentle giant. I would like to breed him, but have gotten mixed advice about this. Can he be breed and what are the chance of the pups having seizures? Also, will the excitement of the breeding cause him to have a seizure?

Breeding
by: Donna

Why do you want to breed? There are enough dogs in shelters and rescues who need homes, including unwanted puppies. Check out the National Pyr Rescue.

It's because people backyard breed. They don't follow through to ensure their dogs go to good homes which means home visit, reference checks and vet checks and the dog ends up in a shelter or rescue and, more puppies are born, abused and dumped.

Yes. There would be a high chance pups would have seizures.

Unless you can guarantee people their dogs will have sound health and temperaments and guarantee sound character, and, be purebreds (which yours are not), do not breed your dog.

Please be responsible and have your dog neutered.

do not!
by: Anonymous

Please do not breed your dog. Responsible registered breeders only pick the best of the best to continue their line.

Your dog is definitely not an example of this. You will end up with a batch of unadoptable pups with an inherited serious health problem. Why do this?

Resist the idea. Neuter your male.
