SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP!!!!!

I have been silently following the progress of you and your dog and have remained quiet until now. Your posts indicate that you adore your dog but your actions do not support this. I do not agree with your method of self administering medication/treatment. You must seek professional veterinary treat...

Return from Holiday

I was told by the neurologist that typically, when the owner returns the pet "relaxes" and is therefore more suspect able to havening a seizure.

Thanks for thinking of me

My absence was not intentional. However, most of my spare time at work was spent on planning my wedding which occurred this past June. Recently, I have been trying to get on CEN. There is a lot to catch up on and new members to meet. Malachi update - It's been a while since the neurologist has seen ...

Dragging

Malachi drags his feet. There are times he outright stumbles. It started with the KBr. He still plays and runs, etc. but it overall more clumsy.

JUst a thought....

I don't crate Malachi. I am sure he would do fine (eventually) with it. However, I like the fact that he can sleep nearby at night (incase he has a seizure). Malachi no longer paces at night when I sleep. Now, I think he hardley moves all night. (This concerns me sometimes.) I almost always find him...

Great News!!!

That is so good to hear about Finn! Finn's legs may always remain weak. Malachi's hind quarters have been weak ever since he has been on KBr. Actually, overall, Malachi is just clumsier. There are times that I call him "hop-a-long cassidy" when I see him lumbering about the yard. However, Malachi is...

No worries

When my dog was in the hospital after his first seizure, one of the tests called for him to be put under to draw spinal fluid. At the time he had all sorts of medication in him. The neurologist assurred me that he would be fine. The neurologist was sure to mention that the same drug that is used to ...

FEAR FACTOR

I have been dealing with my dogs seizures for just over a year and I can confirm that the fear never really subsides. About when you think you are able to relax about it, a seizure occurs and with it comes the reality of it all.

This forum helps me stay in reality.

Decisions

You did the RIGHT thing. REMEMBER - even under MAJOR stress you still did the right thing and that was to NOT make a MAJOR decision too quickly. It was also wise for you to put out a post. REMEMBER - we are out here "reading" and will help you as best as we can whenever we can. Take care and keep us...

SECOND OPINION NEEDED

You and your companion are going through some tough times right now. I agree that you should get a second opinion and have a serious discussion with your vet. I forgot if you are working with a regular veterniarian or with a neurologist. If you are not working with a neurologist, you may want to ser...

Triggers

It is my understand that there are different "triggers" that could cause seizures. Vaccinations could be one of many possible triggers. All dogs respond differently and it is not always known what actually triggers seizures. What triggers one dog once may not trigger the same dog again. It is best t...

Life with Epilepsy

I hope you have had an opportunity to read through epilepsy basics (found on this site). It does a good job at explaining the realities of epilepsy. There is a lot of information out there on homeopathic treatment. I (personally) do not recommend doing this in place of standard drug therapy. However...
