Border Collie collapse (BCC) is an episodic nervous system disorder that is triggered by strenuous exercise.
We believe is due to depletion of minerals. Acute or prolonged stress, (activities) can lead to showing magnesium deficiency symptoms.
An exercise intolerance disorder has been recognized in border collies called border collie collapse (BCC).
This disorder has also been called exercise-induced hyperthermia and “the wobbles.” It is most common in dogs used for working stock but has also been seen in dogs training for agility or flyball competitions and in dogs repetitively retrieving a ball or frisbee.
Affected dogs are normal at rest and seem healthy. They will sometimes become abnormal after five to 15 minutes of strenuous activity, particularly in warm weather.
BCC is recognized throughout North America, Europe, and Australia and is observed in dogs used for working stock, as well as dogs participating in agility or fly-ball competitions or repeatedly retrieving a ball. This disorder has also been called exercise-induced collapse (EIC), exercise-induced hyperthermia, stress seizures and “the wobbles”.
Affected dogs are normal at rest and seem healthy.
Typical collapse episodes begin 5 – 15 min after the onset of exercise and include:
disorientation, dull mentation or loss of focus; swaying, staggering and falling to the side; exaggerated lifting of each limb while walking and a choppy gait; scuffing of the rear and/or forelegs, and crossing of the legs when turning.
All of the factors contributing to the tendency for an affected dog to collapse on a given day (excitement, the intensity of exercise) have not been determined.
Some dogs seem relatively normal while they are exercising but only show symptoms about 5 minutes after exercise is halted. Dogs are abnormal for 5 to 30 minutes but then recover completely with no residual lameness or muscle stiffness or discomfort.
Affected dogs are often unable to exercise and must be retired from competition and work. However, if you restore the missing minerals, and repair the nervous system, retirement may not be necessary. However, it is advisable to continue the magnesium daily in meals – ongoing.
Signs of Magnesium deficiency classical physical signs of low magnesium are:
- Neurological: Behavioural disturbances, irritability and anxiety, lethargy, Impaired memory and cognitive function, anorexia or loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, seizures, Insomnia, hyperactivity.
- Muscular: Weakness, muscle spasms (tetany), tics, muscle cramps, hyperactive reflexes, impaired muscle coordination (ataxia), tremors, involuntary eye movements and vertigo, difficulty swallowing, reflux.
- Metabolic: Increased intracellular calcium, hyperglycemia, calcium deficiency, potassium deficiency.
- Cardiovascular: Irregular or rapid heartbeat, coronary spasms.
Magnesium Chloride (ReMag) 284
See Out Bottle Label.
Example: oral syringe for faster emergency treatment diluted in some water. Or add to some milk for better absorption and relief for nerve and muscle issue pets and animals.
Magnesium ions regulate over 300 biochemical reactions in the body through their role as enzyme co-factors. They also play a vital role in the reactions that generate and use ATP, the fundamental unit of energy within the bodys cells. Without magnesium we could not produce energy, our muscles would be in a permanent state of contraction, and we could not adjust the levels of cholesterol produced and released into the bloodstream.

2. HAMPL Herbal Nervous System Repair 296-2 100ml
Contains herbal liquid extract:
Gotu kola benefits health as a nervine tonic that is particularly replenishing and rejuvenating for the central nervous system and helpful for calming nervous disorders as well as anxiety-related tension.
Gotu kola is also powerful adaptogen (which means it assists the body’s adaptation to stress and exerts a normalizing effect on bodily processes) used for the nervous system and to promote sound sleep. It is also used to enhance the mood, memory, and mental clarity. It supports circulation to the brain while nourishing the nervous system. Gotu kola supports overall vitality and boosts energy.
Lavender – Lavender influences the neurochemicals in the brain and the adrenal glands, so it can be used to reduce the chronic fatigue syndrome. Lavender has balancing effects on pancreas as well. It regulates the insulin production and helps stabilize the blood sugar levels. Lavender is a herb with a balancing effect. It helps stimulate the immune system and also reduces an hyperactive immune system that can cause many allergies and sensitivities.
Lemon balm and its chemical composition make it ideal for both stimulating and calming the nervous system. The rosmarinic acid in the herb has been shown to increase the production of GABA neurotransmitters, which help regulate mood and modulate anxiety. These brain receptors also help stimulate the production of serotonin, thereby increasing feelings of well-being and promoting healthy sleep patterns. These positive effects on the brain are also thought to boost cognitive function and support a healthy endocrine system.

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix.
Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid)
Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.
