I am so sorry to hear Freckles has epilepsy. Smoke had it for only a few months, but the phenobarbital really stopped the seizures. After he started on it, he only had two seizures in that four months, while before the meds, he was having 10 to 15 a day. I truly hope the meds are enough to control his seizures. My friend had a pug that had seizures his whole life and lived to a ripe old age.
Yeah, her pug lived until he was 14. If he was overexcited, he would still seize, so we had to make sure we never overexcited him.
Smoke is doing good, he no longer has seizures and is off all medications. We believe he was poisoned and all the poison has worked its way through his body. He has some residual neurological problems, but no longer has seizures or tremors when he sleeps. He is very lucky.
Thanks all.Dreamer we beilive that one of our other chis (Boo) has it to if he gets scared he will have one and we told the vet about it and they said he sounds like he has it too.But he don't have very many at all.
My mom had a Shitz Tzu that had a few a year. Peanut was never on medication because it happened so rarely. I think the vet said if they have one more than once a month, they will put them on medication.
