Sorry for the language but SHIT. I know how frustrating this can be.
What has changed since Dylan was seizure free for so long?
Did you lower his meds or change anything foodwise ?
Hope things have settled now.

Deby,
I'm sorry to hear Dylan is having to start the countdown all over again. Many good thoughts being sent your way that Dylan can have a very long streak again. Big hugs to you both.

#4 after we went to bed last nite.

no change in food or anything. and we had upped him slightly after the 3 in sept.he was getting a half pill at nite before bed.

the only thing was hubby and 2 brother in laws reroofing the garage so more people, and hammering and an air nailer, Dylan is "gun shy" maybe the noise? I had to work the weekend so not sure what all else was going on.
seems sept & oct are "his" months for some reason. lets see if he settles back down in nov.
thanks for the support

Debby,

have you given him some extra Pb? Maybe that will quiet his brain enough to break the cluster.

yes, was giving him and extra 1/2 but after the last one gave him a whole one. the highest dose the vet had him on last nov was 2 1/2 so untill I hit that I think I`m ok.
they finished the roof today, so maybe now we can all settle back down.

Sorry your having such a bad time. My vet told me to give Kiya up to 150mg of pb if she had 1 to keep her from clustering. I don't give her that much unless she has 2 in a row. If she has 1 I just give her 1 (32mg pill).
Hope that was the end of it.
