Dear Maureen I'm sorry that Bella is not doing good at the moment, it must be a very stressful and worring time for you. Did the vet advise dropping the Pb levels after only 2 weeks of Bella being on them? With regard to the post ictal stage, this can vary each time. My dog's post ictal stages are d...

Hi Alex Could it be something at the Doggy day care place? What do they use if dogs have accidents? I've just been reading about the 'Swiffer wet jet' which is potentially lethal to pets. Not sure what it is (not heard of it in the UK), but it seems some people have been using it to clean dog/pet ar...

Hi Jenn

My dog was very nervous outside after she started on Pb, any noices and she would jump into the air! This did wear off after a couple of weeks.

Good luck and hope Winston will again like going outside.

Hi Bella I agree with Skrpio, in that phenobarb (Pb) is usually the drug of choice to start treatment. This must be given at set times, like Skrpio says, no more than 12 hours apart. Make sure your vet is educated on epilepsy, you could get your dog referred to specialist (this is expensive) for mor...

Oh Alex

That is lovely, I really hope that Jack continues to improve. I also feel the same as Skrpio, in that we have these dogs for a reason. It's surprising how many are 'rescue' dogs. Poppy is also is a rescue pup.

Good luck to you and Jack.

Dear Alex

I'm sorry to hear you are having such a sad time with Jack. I cannot offer you any advice, I'm just so sorry to hear another dog is not doing very well.

You and Jack are in my thoughts.

Hi Darby's Mom! Poppy did have 'wobblyness' when she started on Pb. She now only has a very slight abnomal gait (the vet mentioned something about pelvic reaction) and only noticeable in slow walk - sometimes she walks like an old dog would! She has no problem with running at speeds of around 30mph ...

Hi Carolyn

At least the little guy Rocky in not seizing at the moment, I hope he continues to improve. Please let Karl know that we are all hoping and praying that Rocky will come through this.


My thoughts will be with Rocky and Karl this weekend.
