Kay, Im so sorry to hear about Jezzabelle. As you say, you tried everything possible, it just seems so unfair.

Run free Jezzabelle.

Take care

Oh Carolyn

It's like a crashing defeat when they have a seizure having gone so long without.

My dog went just over 2 years and then they returned, I thought we were on the road to reducing the Pb.

Good luck and hope the next run is even longer.

Break through seizures - Poppy

Poppy had her first seizure on October 17th 2006 - she had 100% control of her seizures with 60mg Pb twice daily from December 2006 - March 2009. I really thought that we had got this monster licked. Unfortunately, the seizures have returned worse than they were in 2006. This Wednesday Poppy had a s...

I would ensure if you are going to do this, that it is done as you say, very gradually and with a knowledgeable vet. My dog had been seizure free for over 2 years, then in March this year she had a couple within 2 weeks of each other. This was despite her Pb levels being within the therapeutic range...

Hi Melissa

So so sorry to hear avout Raven, she really is a fighter, isn't she? What a dreadful shock to find out she had a tumor - I can't imagine how you must be feeling, it's hard enough dealing with the seizures alone.

Sending positive vibes to you and Raven.

My dog had an MRI and a spinal tap done after recurring seizures. The first MRI scan showed that she had narrowed tubes that drain the fluid away from the brain (I can't remember the proper wording!). She did have some build up of fluid. We planned to do a comparison MRI scan and spinal tap a few mo...

This really is quite interesting, and I too wonder if these drugs are suppressing inflamed areas of the brain which would be active during seizures.

Update

Poppy's results came back last week. Her Pb is in therapeutic range, and her liver is coping well. So we are no closer to knowing why her seizures started up again. I'm keeping a diary in case I can find some sort of pattern, but hoping that this was just a 'hiccup' and we will have another great ru...

Well, it obviously wasn't a missed Pb tablet. Poppy had another seizure this morning at 2:10am. I was woken by her screaming (She has never done that before during a seizure). I'm making an appointment at the vets, so that we can talk things through. If they are happening every couple of weeks, it m...
