Changing Doctors

Mom hadn't mentioned it in the blog because she didn't want to alarm any of my buddies, but I haven't been doing too well this month. My seizures have been pretty consistent since the first of the year. I had one on Jan 13th, 2 on Jan 17th and another on Jan 18th. That day she called the vet and he upped my Phenobarbitol to 60 mgs twice a day. He wanted me to come in in two weeks for bloodwork. Well, today, Jan 28, I have had 4 seizures. Dad is going to take me to my Grandpa's vet tomorrow. Grandpa takes his dacshund, Tanika to this vet and says that he is very good and only treats little animals. My regular vet also treats horses and cows and I really think they are his specialty, not little animals. So anyways, everyone keep your paws crossed for me that everything works out. Mom is a nervous wreck!

What a bummer...please keep us posted. The new vet will hopefully figure things out. We can get the name of our grandpa's vet in Rockport if you need another opinion.
We are thinking of you & your mom -if we can do anything to help, please let us know.

Im so glad you are going to try a different vet. There is NO reason that he should still be having such frequent seizures. That's a fairly high dosage of pheno too so I'm inclined to wonder if maybe pheno just doenst work for him.

Thank you for the update, I've been wondering how he was doing. Let us know how the new vet visit goes!
