Hi here

Poppy had MRI scans done when first diagnosed with epilepsy, she was also diagnosed with hydrocephalus, after comaprison MRI's this was said to be congenital and not a cause of her epilepsy.

We did talk about a VP shunt op, but because her condition was congenital and there was no difference in fluid build up in comparison MRI's we did not go for the op.

Poppy - 9 year old whippet/greyhound (20 kg)

First seizure- 17th Oct 2006
Last seizure - 17th Nov 2009

90mg Pb twice daily
320mg KBr daily
