Re: Seizures more Intense

My dog didn't like the taste of CBD oil, I got the one by Innovet, didn't help prevent or extend the time before the seizure. I wish they would standardize it like regular medicine. The seizures my dog has are very intense, my dog is a geriatric with a brain tumor. We got two nanny cams to keep an e...

Re: Dosage of keppra and keppra XR

Keppra xr is giving my dog an upset stomach about once a week. I wish we had started him on a lower dose but I was too distraught when the vet told me the dosage he is taking now since it was a day after a seizure. Now my vet is suggesting we switch to the regular keppra to see if that helps the sto...

Re: Adding additonal Keppra and no appetite

How are you and you pup doing? Zonisamide suppressed my dogs appetite and he lost 4 lbs in 8 months, it kind of worked for seizures a bit. My dog is a geriatric beagle started out at 28 lbs and is now 24 lbs, part of it may also be age. Now we started generic Keppra XR about 6 weeks ago since I didn...

Re: JRT new to seizures! Help!

How is Wally Doing? My beagle started having seizures Sept 2017 when he was 15 and has been on Zonisamide 50mg 2x a day since March. It took him about two weeks to get used to the Zonisamide. Due to advanced age our dog could have a brain tumor, I didn't want to do anything invasive like MRI or spin...

Re: Dosage of keppra and keppra XR

Hi All, After reading all the posts there over a year I finally joined. This forum has been a great resource and helped me cope so much. My beagle started having seizures about a year ago at 15 yrs old, due to brain tumor, he gets grand-mals while sleeping and has a long post-ictal, takes him over a...
