Re: Hello from me and Ginger

Hi, I am sorry. The only thing that is available in English is her memorial page. I haven't visited this forum for a long time. Do you have an Irish?

Re: Question Re. KBR, Zonisamide, and Gabapentin Cocktail

Zonisamide sounds great to me, but in Europe it is very expensive. I am wondering what the price tag is in the USA. Vivian?

As a third drug I use Keppra, but that doesn't seem to do much.

My Ginger is on 125 mg pheno twice a day. When she seizes I give her a 100 mg injection extra.

It is better to feed on a brand that doesn't contain chemical preservatives. Food really can make a difference. I am feeding Acana and Orijen. Those brands are free of chemical preservatives and grain free.

Hi Sheila,

welcome to CEN. I know what you are going trough, my Irish Red Setter girl is also clustering. Did your vet check his blood levels?

I think that the Pheno could be raised. My girl's weight is 25 kg. and I give her 250 mg. per day.

In the UK we are not offered seperate injections - it's a yearly booster with several vaccines, ( parvo, leptosirosis, distemper etc). Vets in the UK seem very against not having dogs vaccinated. Well, that pretty standard in the Netherlands too, but that doesn't mean that you have to accept that. ...
