The vet says he has epilepsy but only because the blood work up came back normal for everything else. Also, I give detoxifying foot baths at my salon, which he is at. I pour the water with their toxins outside where I want weeds to die. I obviously won't be doing that anymore. Is there anything I can give him to pull heavy metals out, in case he's been walking over there and ingested any of it. I was told it's not any more dangerous for the environment than peeing outside but now I have my doubts.
The first place I would look is to his diet. If he is on processed kibble or canned food, I would get him off A.S.A.P. Grains as well as all the toxins in processed foods have been known to cause seizures in many cases. There are herbs, vitamins, essential oils and homeopathic remdies that are good at eliminating toxins and heavy metals in the body.

Another thing to consider is how you and others interact with your dog. Reactive humans communicate a lower status than those who initiate interactions with the dog. When owners are reactive, this may force some dogs to assume a higher rank by default. If the dogs can handle it, no problems arise. But if they can't, it can result in a wide variety of stress-related medical problems. Clinical evidence suggests that, as in humans, so-called pseudo seizures may be among these. These are almost impossible to differentiate from epileptic ones, and even when epilepsy has been proven conclusively, as many as 20% of the seizures of confirmed epileptics may fall into this catagory. Consequently, I always recommend a program of behavioral and bond changes in these animals. Describing such is way beyong the scope of this post, but do try to resist any temptation to feel sorry for or otherwise baby your dog, a highly reactive and counter-productive response. Instead focus on activities that communicate your utmost confidence in yourself and your pet.
