Re: complex focal seizures

Hi Aileen, Bless your heart, 14 years is a ripe age even for a small dog. Our dog Eddie started his epilepsy "career" with complex focal seizures, 4 of them over a couple of weeks, and they were terrifying. Eddie's were just as you described them for Marley, but happened when he was awake and we wer...

Re: Puppy with epi, complex focal seizures, looking for info

Abigail, Eddie is a mixed breed, some sort of terrier mix as far as we can tell. From what you say, it sounds like it's too soon for us to worry about valium, but I like the idea of a kit with supplies.

Re: My Daisey's story

Daisey's Dad, Daisey was so lucky to have you for the last years of her life. I am sorry this last day was so difficult, but you must know you did all you could for Daisey and best of all you gave her love.

Peace,

Katie

Re: Puppy with epi, complex focal seizures, looking for info

Eddie is now on day 10 since his last seizure and day 16 since his last focal seizure. This morning I took him on a short walk for the first time in a long ...

Re: Puppy with epi, complex focal seizures, looking for info

Thanks, Barb! Yes, the puppy is Eddie :) Thank you for sharing your experience. You are the first person I've 'met' who has a dog with early-onset seizures. We had so many plans for Eddie, camping trips, hiking, dog sports - all of the things we couldn't do with our last dog because she had some tem...

Puppy with epi, complex focal seizures, looking for info

We have a nearly 6 month old puppy who started having seizures between his 19th and 20th weeks. He has had one grand mal and 3 complex focal seizures. The focal seizures were by far the worst – he basically had a psychotic meltdown – sudden LOUD high-pitched barking and howling, uncontrollable f...
