My dog suffers from seizures, and I've heard that B vitamins may help?

My dog suffers from seizures, and I've heard that B vitamins may help. Is there any scientific proof to this? Are there any risks associated with giving him B vitamins?

Dogs or cats should never take human medication unless prescribed or instructed by a veterinarian. Every year, hundreds of dogs and cats end up at the emergency clinic because their owners gave them their own medication or their pets got into the medication on their own. It’s important to keep all medication—prescription and non-prescription—in a secure place. Because dogs and cats have been known to ingest entire bottles of pills, often with dire consequences.

Title Vitamin B-complex concentrates and the incidence of
sound-induced seizures in young albino rats maintained on
purified diets.
Abstract The offspring of 80 female albino rats of the
Sprague-Dawley strain, 462 animals in all, were divided
into 7 groups. One group received standard laboratory
ration, one group a purified diet containing 5 of the
vitamines of the B-complex, another group received 5
additional vitamins of the B-complex, and the remaining
groups received the basal diet modified by rice polish
concentrate, ventriculin, liver concentrate, and yeast
respectively. Sensitivity of all animals to audiogenic
seizure was tested by 10 exposures to a resonated buzzer
during the period from 21 to 55 days of age. Animals
receiving the basal diet modified by addition of 5 vitamins
of the B-complex showed a seizure incidence of 10.8% as
compared with a total incidence of 67.4% for the group
maintained on the basal purified diet. The other added
vitamin-B concentrates afforded similar protection against
the seizures. "These results . . . indicate that a group
of B-complex vitamins may have a specific protective function
against the development of seizures or . . . permit better
nourished young animals to adjust more adequately to a yet
undiscovered pathological condition."
