Lilly's seizures

Hi--I am sorry to hear about Lilly. Seems like this same thing happened to my 10 year old welsh terrier. She went in for dental cleaning and got her immunizations. when she came home that night I gave her the Heartworm preventative. A day later she began with grand-mal seizures. she was healthy befo...

titers

Hi Mr. Finn! Dr. Dodds will also do rabies titers. I am almost certain that I read about someone in N.Y. (not N.J.) was given a "release" from rabies innoculation with a satisfactory rabies titer. May be worth checking into.
Thanks for your well-wishes!

Another seizure-free night

This is two nights in a row with no seizures. This was the first time that my dog had so many seizures in a row--seven in less than 24 hrs. Even with the Valium and increase in the PB during this time, recooperation has been so fast. It seems that it took several weeks for her to return to normal be...

to Jane:

Jane, from everythig that I have heard about Dr. Dodds, she is one dedicated lady. I have a puppy--actually "Lark" is now five years old, but this dog went blind and deaf over night. The gal is in Montana---no man's land---no good diagnostics around. She drove her dog to Colorado (a 12 hr. drive) to...

immunizations and seizures

Jane--How old is KiKi? If KiKi is at least five years old I would discontinue immunizations--you can read all about it on Dr.Dodd's website. I think that this is part of what threw Nosey into seizures along with the anesthesia and heartworm preventative---all on the same day.... My 8 year old Welsh ...

one more thing, Jane

Yes, Jane, after two seizures the vet had me increase the PB by 1/2 of the am (or pm dose) This didn't stabalize her. That is when he got me on the rectal valium. Nosey weighs avout 21 lbs. and as soon as I picked up the Valium, he told me to give her 1/2 cc rectally to see if we could stop the next...

reply to KiKi's mom

Hi Jane--it was not tilll I realized that it was the Heartguard Plus that was causing the seizures--after three months in a row--that I wanted to get off the "Plus", but my vet didn't carry the basic Heartguard (without the "Plus) Reading what Dr. Dodds had on her Guardian Angels site, Ivermectin se...

more on heartworm preventative........

Hi Mr. Finn--I have read many, if not all of your posts--doesn't matter that your are Male-i just thought you were the 'lady of the house". Nosey has been on Ivermectin for most of her life.(she's 10 y.o. now) At one time when I was breeding and had a large kennel I was preparing a coctail of Bovine...

Valium

Debbie--thanks for your kind message. if I can get Nosey over this hurdle from giving her that Revolution i think that she will go back to being seizure-free and will be controlled with 1/2 grain of PB in the morning and at night and there will not be a need to have the rectal valium on hand. Her la...

Nosey had four more seizures last night and after the 4th one at 2:30 this morning i gave her 1/4 grain of pb. 8 am and ...

more on heartworm preventative........

Seizures began in Feb. after immuniztions. They were grand mal. PB controlled the seizures until Heartguard Plus was given in March-April-May. Siezures started back, but it took me three months to realize that it was the Heartguard that was causing the seizures. June, we switched to Interceptor. Gra...

response to Skrpio and MK's Mom!

Hey friends, thanks for your response. I read both of you. It is a situation of being a "double edged sword". She needs the heartworm preventative, but the seizures are also killing both of us. My vet didn't believe me when I told him that Heartguard was the cause of the seizures. So this month we s...

more seizures--Help!!

My Nosey dog (10 year old WT)--started PB in Feb. Her blood test for drug level one month later was 13. Not even in range. She got Heartguard Plus Mar-April-May and went back into seizures each time and the PH had to be increased each time. (Last month her PB level was higher--at 19, but yet to reac...
