Excited and Sad...

Posted by Buckhorn on April 13, 2011 at 7:43 PM

I am excited for new puppy Rook to finally be home tomorrow, but am sad and concerned about Juneau.  He had 6 seizures over an 18 hour period that I know of.  Vet says finally time to try a third med.  Phenobarbital, Keppra and now Toprimax.  Let's hope this is the last med, although specialist says it could take up to five different!  Good grief.  Anyone with suggestions on epilepsy treatment?  We already raw feed.

Sorry to hear about Juneau! :( I hope he's been doing better these past few days?

I hope he's doing better too. I've been looking into getting a Tamaskan. But I just saw your ANCD and think they are beautiful. Could you send me an email and let me know when you will have more and how much they are? Also I don't know if you have already tried it but you can try putting lobelia on Juneau's feet. I know this has worked for other dogs and helps humans too. It has even stopped seizures in their tracks. I'm not sure how often you would need to apply it but it can be used if you see one coming on or just put it on his feet once or twice a day. I know someone else that was using it and she realized that the shampoo they were using brought it on. So many things can trigger seizures. It's natural and it smells good. I got the Lobelia Essence from Nature's Sunshine for a few people and one other dog. Here's a direct link if you want: http://bit.ly/kZS7ot

I know just what you're going through. My Siberian Husky has seizures. He has been on Pheno, twice a day, but when our Bullmastif died of IMHA, last month, he got stressed and had two cluster seizures that week. My vet put him on 3ccs of sodium bromide, but it makes him look like a drunken sailor, so I decreased his dosage to 2ccs. He still looks a bit wobbly. I had just started him on prey model raw food, since grain kibble has been linked to seizures, but I know Huskies can be prone to them, now. I want to cut the sodium bromide out totally, so I'm weaning him of it.

You might want to mention either sodium or potassium bromidento your vet. My neighbor's Jack Russell is on sodium bromide, besides the Pheno, and he's doing just fine on both. Make sure they check Juneau's liver regularly to check his Pheno levels, since it is processed through the liver.
