Re: New member with questions about Zonisamide

Having a bad day today. I tried to put the pill powder into the gravy on his food last night, and he wouldn't touch it. So I wasted three pills. This morning I was only able to get about a pill and a half down him. He won't eat any type of dog food or the eggs I cooked. Im almost out of the prescrip...

Re: New member with questions about Zonisamide

I did journal that day. The very first one started at 8am then second at 5pm and then the time decreased between them to only an hour or two between them through he night.
He was having them while sleeping, is that normal?

Re: New member with questions about Zonisamide

Since I'm new to all this. Does clustering mean multiple seizures in a day? Or multiple one after another. Shemp had 6 in a day, does this mean clustering? It will be 2 weeks since his last seizure on Saturday. I have so many questions on where I am with this. Is not having a seizure in two weeks a ...

Re: New member with questions about Zonisamide

Oh, I don't plan on taking him off unless my vet was ok with it. It's just nice to get feedback from other people. I would love to treat him holistically. But in reality I know that's probably not an option.

Re: New member with questions about Zonisamide

Wow! I have so many questions for you! Is canibus the only thing you use once he has the seizures? How do you administer it? Edibles? I'm afraid a vet will advise me against this, but I hate medicating my dog. If I knew that the seizures would only happen like in CB's case I would take him off immed...

Re: New member with questions about Zonisamide

First, thank you for responding! It can feel very lonely dealing with all this for the first time. Needless to say I'm overwhelmed:( Shemp had his first seizure end of July at a kennel. Bloodwork came back fine and he had no other symptoms. Untill last week he was at a kennel for the night and they ...

New member with questions about Zonisamide

I have a 3yr old Pitt mix. He just suffered a cluster of seizures about a week ago. We rushed him to an emergency vet and he was put on Zonisamide. 100mg 6 pills a day. He weighs about 60lbs. It's near impossible to pill him, he has lost pretty much all appetite and much more lethargic than normal. ...
