I started having them about 4 weeks ago. my vet put me on Diazepam (valium) which stopped the cluster of seizures I was have having. I was having 3 to 5 a night. we had more test run yesterday to rule out thyroid, lead poison, it neither of those, I do have high choloesterol and my thyroid is a little low but neither are real bad. Dr Greg, my vet doesn't really want to put me on the other seizure meds because they cause weight gain and I don't need that, I am already about 20 lbs over weight (weighed in yesterday at 91.5 lbs) plus long term tend to lead to liver problems
I am going to try a vitamin supplement for 2 months, that my vet uses with one of his dogs to see how it works we are keep the Diazepam on hand just incase I need it.
we are lucky in a way with mine as my brother Dallas, warns mom before I have one. she didn't know at first that was what he was telling her only took a couple of times until mom figured out Dallas was letting her know I was about to have a seizure. Dallas is a smart brother!
