Hi there,

Another night 7 grand-mal episodes cluster every hour
Pee all over the house, I didn't get any sleep last night
Go to work at 8:00 AM . I have gone past the nervous state to the mental break down stage.
I cried today like never before. The clusters episodes stop at 4:30 AM

He is resting right now,

You really need to get this dog on medication if you have not already started. Having clusters like that is dangerous. He will overheat and then this causes many more problems and he may go into status. Once in this state he may not come out. This is how I lost my KiKi - please be careful and not let it go on too long.

do you have valium or pb too give this dog? what about bryers ice cream after and are you trying the ice packs? you really need to do something. has the vet "knocked him down" with valium? we had to do this to Dylan once. not wanting to scare you, but maybe you should find a diffrent vet?

This is so sad - do you have your dog on any meds? Diazapam helps stop clustering with my mutt - also the 'ice cream' (I use haagan daz) is a real help!

Hope your dog an you are OK - I've taken to taking a herbal medicine to help with with my nerves!!
