Re: Beau's story

I am sad to say that Beau's story has come to an end. The tumor that was on his pancreas was causing to many problems. About a month ago he had a seizure at 11 pm and continued to have them every two hours for the next 14 hours. He suffered a grand maul at three in the afternoon and after consulting...

Re: Every type of seizure and now tremors too

you know your pup and if you think they need additional tests then go for it. My vet said she thought everything was routine with my pup, until I pointed out in the journal I keep about his seizures that the only factor that was always the same was that he was sleeping. So we then did additional tes...

Glucose Insulin Pair

Good Morning, I took Beau in to have a Glucose Insulin pair done, as his seizures were changing. They were coming more frequently and I was seeing little differences in his activity, as well as new types of seizures all together. The biggest thing I noticed was that he was having his seizures when h...

Re: Beau's story

My vet and I discussed Beau's seizures. I had noticed that every time this year he seems to ramp up and have more. At first I thought maybe it is an allergy issue, and then I realized that he gets really hot when he sleeps. I also at this time of year get hot when I sleep. So we put a fan in the roo...

Re: Beau's story

Starting on the 13th of March, we have been ramping up on our seizures. The only link that I can find in all of his seizure activity is sleep. In almost all instances he has been sleeping and will jump up and have a grand maul seizure. In the last week he has had Six seizures alone. It seems that we...

Re: Beau's story

I wanted to give an update on my boy: We have been doing very well lately. The getting up at 330am to administer medication seems to have helped with the seizure activity. My boy comes with me to the kitchen, takes his meds, eats a little food and then goes back to my bed. He drops right back to sle...

Beau's story

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum, but not to the life of a parent of an epileptic dog. Our story starts five years ago when I decided that my girl Bella needed a friend. So we searched and found Beau. He was a rescue, a dachshund (or so I thought) and just a bundle of pure love. At about the th...
