|I have a 3 yr old Siberian Husky who has had seizures since she was about 8 or 9 months old. She has grand mal seizures and we do not think something specific triggers them. She has had them in winter, spring summer. This past weekend she had 7 grand mal seizures in a 24 hour period, we have had to take her to the emergency vet many times and she is now on three different medications to try to control her seizures. About every 6 months she has seizures, then we have to up her medication. After this last episode her seizures were so bad, it is a horrible thing to have to watch, there is nothing you can do. We also have another Siberian Husky who we have to separate from Amesa when she has seizures or our other Siberian attacks her. She has to take medicine morning and night. The after effects of seizures is also not a good thing to have to watch, our Siberian has very long post -tical phases. She has walked around for a week and not really known who we were. I am trying everything in my power to help Amesa, but sadly for her this
probably her last hope. Each time she has a seizure is worse then the last, she is already on so much medicine and her liver level is already elevated which is an effect of the Phenobarbital. She is my 5th Siberian in my life and the only one I have had with this condition. The next time she has another round of clusters seizures we will probably have to put her down, It is unfair to her to keep her for our own benefit, I just wanted to try one more time. Our vet said it will happen again and that is when I have to make the decision, she is such a sweet and beautiful girl it breaks my heart that she has this condition and hers is the worse our vet has seen. I wish there was hope for Amesa but there is not. We just try to enjoy her while she is still here with us but we know that she won't live very much longer, and when that day comes it will break my heart but I know that I tried everything I could to help her.
