Hi!

Maybe it's indicated on another thread--and I'll keep reading to see--but I'm wondering if the MRI was ever had and if it revealed anything of significance.

Thanks. I hope Lexxington is doing well.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Finndog. I don't post here often, but I often come to read, and your devotion to Finn has always been obvious. You were a good dad to a good dog. I really doesn't get any better than that.

God bless you, Finndog. Godspeed to Finn.

Like Hailey, Tenny's trigger is excitement. She was a complete nervous, pacing, eating-the-house mess on KBr. We switched her to Pheno and her situation is completely different. No pacing, no uncontrolled urge to eat...and no seizures despite the excitement of people in and out at Thanksgiving. Chri...

I associate what appear to be compulsive behaviors with seizure. Tenny has always been a circler, and when she gets excited (at mealtime, when she wants to go out, when company arrives), she circles and spins like a maniac. Excitement triggers Tenny's seizures, and spinning and circling play a huge ...

Is it possible Sadie is simply reacting to Maya's seizures? You know, sort of getting caught up in the "excitement" of Maya's vocalization and increased activity level? It happens. For both to lose bladder control is a bit strange, though. Good luck tomorrow. Though it seldom is the case with epilep...

Gosh, I'm so sorry to read this. Is this something else to worry about when our dogs are in seizure? So sad. My condolences to Doogle's family

I'm so sorry, Trance Dog. You're correct: They did do the right thing for Nika. Your parents must have deep love for you and for her to have assumed the responsibility for her care and to have show her the last great kindness by easing her on her way. Please believe that there's nothing to forgive y...

Hi. Sorry to hear you and Trevor are having such a difficult time. My Tenny is not adjusting well to her meds, first KBr and more recently Pheno. She staggers, trips, falls, pants, and on both drugs her appetite has been ravenous--to the point where she'll eat non-food items when there is no food to...

I don't understand. Does this mean Nika is gone? If so, I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Hi Olivesmom: No help to offer, just questions: Any report of seizure activity during her time at the humane society? What's the time sequence between start of the seizures and use of the metronidazole? Any chance you still have any kibble she turned away from for toxin testing? Has she been started...

Though I don't post here often, I visit the site regularly and follow your conversations. I'll just comment that many owners--myself included--believe that our dogs have had adverse reactions to vaccinations and topical applications. The combo of vaccines you mention is pretty heavy-duty. Ask your v...

I think I posted here earlier (but perhaps it was elsewhere) that one of my dogs had a mild seizure three years ago, at four years of age, four days after first-time application of FrontLine Plus. We'd used regular FrontLine without incident for several years. I can't say definitively it caused her ...
