Not Much to Say Yet..

..apparently the drugs she was given last night (large dose of Phenobarbital) did keep her fairly comfortable - but she was still seizing some this morning. The vet called and told me he had just given her another minimal dose of phenobarbital ...hoping to break the seizure cycle with it in her system..

She had both a bowel and bladder movement last night and her blood work is still completely normal....showing all organs are working fine. In fact the vet commented that her blood work looks better than the normal 12 year old dogs usually looks.

I called and left a message with his nurse about a drug called Propofol that another blogger told me about. I read about it on the Internet. In the case study - it helped 11 out of 13 (12 dogs and 1 cat) in a study.

We must stop the cycle of seizures!!!!!

..and for those of you who have asked - this is not the same dog that was hit by a car and had the concussion. That was KC...(Chrissy's husband)

I'm crying as I read yesterday's and today's posts. I just want Chrissy to be better. I pray that the vets are on the right track now and she'll have a turn around.
Lots of hugs, Susan

I am so sorry about her.

Are they sure it's advantage, like the stuff you get from the vets? Wow I use that stuff on my dog thats crazy! I wonder whats the alternative for good flea prevention?

I'm so glad to hear that Chrissy is still fighting. I hope the meds kick in and bring her out of the seizures. Poor gal.
OK...I was thinking it was Chrissy that was hit last year. Thinking maybe that had something to do with her seizing. Glad it's not.
Thanks for keeping us updated.
