Tumbleweed606 Posted June 14, 2007 Report Share Posted June 14, 2007 We have a border collie who has been having seizures since he was 9 months old. After a couple cluster episodes, he seemed to even out with just having one a month. He was put on Phenobarbital. It didn't seem to help much, so the vet recently increased the dosage, and he just keeps getting worse (having more seizures, more often). We (and the vet) thought perhaps his thyroid was low. We had it checked, and the vet said it wasn't too low, but just a bit. They put him on thyroid meds a couple weeks ago, and he keeps getting worse. He had 4 seizures this past weekend, and today he had three more (just two clear days in between). We are starting him on Potassium Bromide tomorrow, and we are just praying this does the trick. Lately, he seems to have seizures every time it storms. He is such a happy, healthy dog in between...this is just breaking our heart. We don't want to give up on him. Does anyone have any suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
