Re: It's his thyroid!

Conor started his seizures when he was about 5, and he was never diagnosed with anything else. I did meet someone who had a Boxer a couple of years ago who began having seizures, and they test the Calcium level. It turned out being low, and when they started him on calcium pills, his seizures stoppe...

Re: It's his thyroid!

Unfortunately, it did not stop Conor's seizures completely. He hasn't clustered recently, and we are going on about a month with no episodes. But his seizure medication is still very high. We recently upped the amount of thyroid medication because his levels came back low when we did another test. I...

Re: Still good news on Charlie!

Hope Charlie is still doing well! I would definately recommend Costco for prescriptioins. Conor is taking Gabapetin and at CVS it was going to cost $250 a month. At Costco we are getting it from anywhere between $25 and $35 depending on which generic company they are going with at the time. And you ...

Thyroid Medication

I was told the same thing about Conor. He is a 8 year old 64 pound golden retriever who had his first cluster seizures 3 years ago. I had to almost force my vet to have the full thyroid panel done, but he finally agreed. We sent it to Michigan State for the testing, and when we got it back, both Con...

DHLPP Booster

Conor got his DHLPP Booster on Wednesday around 11:30 am, and on Thursday around 2:00 pm had a seizure, followed by another one at 7:00 pm. He hadn't had one for 5 weeks until the booster. I can't help but wonder if that caused them to start again. We gave him an extra PB to stop him from clustering...

Hi Vivian, Thanks for responding so fast. My last post was the very first one I ever did. I have been reading the CEN for a couple of months now and have found it very helpful. When I saw the post about the thyroid, I just had to write. I must have just missed it before. My neurologist told me about...

How's Jack Doing

I saw that your last message on Jack's thyroid was in March, and I wanted to see how he was doing. My dog, Conor, also started Thyroid treatment about 1 month ago. When I asked my vet to do a complete Thyroid panel on him, he thought I was nuts. But when the results came back, my vet and our nueroli...
