Yes , my first dog Sloopy the black lab,
he was a street dog, only young but came into
the house to die from canine distemper.
He didn't die and lived with me for 15 year(still
miss him) the distemper left him with Epilepsy and
a twitch. He had Epilin to control his fits very successfully.
Eventually the nerve damage repaired itself and he stopped
fitting naturally and also twitching.
I could tell when he was going to have a fit by the way he behaved;
He looked spacey and spooked before it would happen.
I lost him at Glastonbury once (when you could take dogs)
He must have realised he was going to have a fit and managed
to get the tent zip up and got out before I could get out of my sleeping
bag...it took me about 2 hours to find him!
