thanks. Sounds good. not doubting you at all, I just have never seen KBr compounded in a 400 mg/l solution before. No difference though. Glad all is going well!

GREAT!!!!!! I really think stress is a huge trigger. OK, can you update us on the meds and the levels he's on. For some reason, I was thinking he was still on that super high dose of KBr.

GREAT JOB

The rolling thing isa result of the muscles firing in sequence down the body. Its typically indicative of a neurological disorder but not always. Its a different type of seizure.

AHH, the ol' holistic herb thing again! Don't feel bad, I tried those for Finn's epilepsy as well and got similar results :) If yo haven't already, I would suggest taking him to a neuro. Did you have a spinal tap to see if there was still infection or presence of viral activity? The fact that he has...

that's a vets call for sure. Most will start meds if seizure activity is about every 30 days. Since your dog is fortunatelty not experiencing Grand mals, that's a personal decision. I would be a little concerned that they are complex focals. Complex focals may be indicative of secondary not primary ...

The Same-E product Finn takes is Zentonil but only because he's also on Rimadyl along with the PB. Jane is right about the PB having a rep that is not warrented. The vast majority of dogs take it with no real issues. Regular monitoring is key. Milk thistle is also a good liver detoxifier. I still ad...

Tux, what's going on. Haven't heard from you? Are you still at that KBr dose? Did you get the med levels checked yet? Hope all is well and your silence is a good sign.

Technically, dogs do not have petit mal seizures in the true sense. What you described is a classic "complex focal seizure". Pelase read about them on this site. They are typically indicative of secondary epilepsy- not primary. Click on the top link to the left of this post. "Canine epilepsy Basics"...

Very interesting that they are collies and its the third. The viral infection and meningitis (sp) can easily cause brian damage or swelling of the brain. The issue of the dog seizing while running around fits the description of dogs who have hypoglycemia but my guess is that this is not the case. It...

Skullcap is used by many holistic vets. I would ask your vet first as it could cause issues when used in conjunction with PB and KBr. Here's some info.

Been there too! You can't just abandon a epi dog. You got, you take of him. That's good Karma! You do have to find a good balance though, IT can become all consuming if you don't watch out. Communication....

Amber, don't think it didn't take it's toll on you either. Try to reconcile this and understand you did all that anyone could. Try to get some rest.
