Hi Sue! Thank you for your information. That is one more thing I will keep in mind. I love having this site to come back to when I need support or to do a search on something I had seen at one time. It's hard to remember everything, try as I might. And to here of other options that we didn't know ab...

My dog Ada will drink until I think she's becoming part CAMEL! But then, she's on Phenobarb, Kbr (potassium bromide) and a steroid (dexamethasone). Do some reading on this site, if you haven't already. There are many options available if the pheno isn't doing the trick. I've only been fighting this ...

Well, we had an 11 day run without seizures which is a record since Oct. 26th. Had one on Saturday and then another on Monday. Valium helps but I think I may ask about the chlorazapate as MK's mom suggested. It doesn't seem to stop them completely, just makes them WAY less aggresive. Maybe the alter...

My healthful wishes to you and Jackson. I hope his liver has a quick turn around and becomes healthy again. I also wish you the best with the Keppra.
Keep up the good work. You're a good dad.

Beth,
I am so sorry to hear about TJ. Our time with them is so precious. Know in your heart that while she's running about in a better place, she's happy knowing that she had the human mom she did. My thoughts are with you.

It is hard to see them after the valium, as Ada couldn't even walk the last time for hours afterward. She needed to be let out to relieve herself and it was so saddening for me to practically carry her out (at 75 pounds) only to have to bring her back in because she couldn't hold herself up long eno...

I just had to come back and look at everyone's babies again. All I can say is "Awww!". The Irish Setters brought me back to when my grandmother and grandfather had one named Brandy. I remember how soft her coat was even though I was little at the time. Congratulations on getting Caiden. What a beaut...

Beth, I think it must've taken a lot to get the courage to post this video and you should be commended for that. It's not easy making these kinds of decisions by ourselves and I understand why you're asking our opinions. I suppose if I were in this position, I would probably decide that her quality ...

Thank you. I'm glad the vet gave his advice as we've had a pretty good run here. I won't be specific though, as I always feel like I'm jinxing the issue! LOL! (Silly, but last time I blabbed about how long we'd gone, she had one that night...)
Merry Christmas!!

Thanks Puggles. You sure are right about the ups and downs and getting through it time and again. My nights are pretty sleepless, but I'm getting through it and sleep a little extra on weekends when I can. We're continuing the fight as I want to give her meds time to do their thing. My good wishes t...

Thanks. That is definitely true as today she's walking around much better. Poor thing just seems to start getting clear of the post-ictal symptoms and then has another and we start all over. But I'll keep my hopes up for a new record each time we start over.
