Re: Gastric upset

Hi Clare so sorry that Cuillin got re-admitted, lots of vibes that he will make a good recovery. I am very luck that Poppy has been easy to 'control' seizure wise, our only hiccup was when she was on anti imflammatories, and we had break through seizures, upping pb didn't work, hence the addition of...

Re: Gastric upset

Hi Clare So sorry to hear that Cuillin's having problems at the moment. I'm also in the UK and had to switch from the potassium bromide syrup to tablets. I think I read that Vetoquinol who manufactured the syrup did not apply for a licence for use in dogs so the product got withdrawn; and as my dog ...

Hello Sorry you're having such a rough time at present. My dog is on both pheno and KBr. She was started on pheno and we did have some weakness until she adjusted to medication. Unfortunately her seizures started up after a couple of years and we had to intriduce KBr. We had dreadful hind end weakne...

Re: Howling, barking, and whimpering! I need sleep!

Good to hear that things are settling down with Stewie. When my dog first started seizures, the post ictal stage lasted for several days until we started her on valium when she had the seizure, this greatly reduced the post ictal stage from a couple of days to about half an hour. Please be careful r...

Re: new comers, but not to epilepsy

Hello Sorry you are having a rough time with Olivia. I had my dog on Pb for 2 years with no problems, seizures started again, we upped the Pb, that didn't work so have added potassium bromide. That seems to be working (touch wood) We aren't going to lower the Pb as it is in the therapeutic range, bu...

Re: Weak Legs - Getting worse by the day

Hello I had similar problems with my dog. We had stumbling, falling down stairs, not able to run etc. My dog was put on KBr alongside PB in Nov last year, it wasn't until September this year that I was allowed to decrease the KBr. Pb levels were not high enough for us to lower. Really hope your dog ...

Re: Is Winnie having focal fits?

Hello Winnie's Mum I have an epi dog (Poppy) who was also seizure free on Pb for 2 years. In her case she had just been on a few courses of anti inflammatories and she ended up with internal bleeding and her Pb wasn't being absorbed properly. Just a thought - has Winnie been on any anti inflammatori...
