Hi Joe I've just been reading through this post, and came to the one where you say Tux had his annual vaccinations in Jan.... I've read that collies in particular (and other herding breeds such as Australian shepherds) are particularly sensitive to vaccinations. Vets won't agree that vaccinations/wo...

Poor Casey

I really hope the chlorazapate works. It's just so sad when we hear other pups going through a rough time.

Good luck and thinking of you both.

Dear Nicole
So sad to hear you bad news re Claire. If Claire stabilises while on steroids, it may give you some time to think things through.
Thinking of you and Claire.

Hi There re valium - I give this whilst Poppy is actualy seizing - it then lessens the effect of her post-ictal stage, she comes round very well. Dogs will become used to valium, and it's effects lessen. I keep a whole batch ready 'just in case'. When dogs have a seizure I've read it's the equivalen...

Hi Jetta's Mom Jetta may be experiencing post-ictal stages of epilpesy - they can become very disoientated, appear blind, stagger around etc etc. My dog appears blind and condfused and does not recognise voices (they appear to really startle her), so this may be why your dog is acting strangely. I w...

Hi Nicole I see you have already had a lot of replies - just to add that once your dog has started on pb it would be dangerous to take yor dog off it. Your dog had quite a few seizures within a short period of time, and like some people say on here, the brain 'learns' to have more seizures (kindling...

I agree with Skrpio in that I would NOT use anything with PLUS in the name. Poppy's seizures started after being wormed with Drontal PLUS.... I am convinced this started her seizures. Vets will tell you different...

Hi Janet I would seek a specialist opinion (neurologist) who would be able to investigate further. It may well be linked to her previous back problem. Before I started my dog on medication, I had her referred to a neurologist to rule out any other problems, as once on medication, it is very dangerou...

Hi SleepingDog

Really nice to hear that Alba has gone 5 years seizure free - it gives hope to all of us here that it can be done!

Hope Alba continues to be seizure free.

Hi Brandy & Meeka

Just to say that this site has been really useful for me - I'm sure you'll get lots of help and advice - just ask, someone on here will always reply!

Hope the meds work for Meeka - do give them a few weeks to take effect.

Good luck and best wishes.
