My sweet Panda continues to have seizures. When I notice she has one I'm giving her some diazapam as soon as possible after she comes out of it to ward off another one. She just had one a few moments ago (woke us up), she had one yesterday and she had one Saturday morning. I don't know how many she's having that I don't notice.....it could be much more often.
We've been seeing more signs of whatever it is affecting her. She sometimes has a dazed look with vacant eyes, she occasionally appears unsteady on her feet, she pants often, and can no longer catch a tossed bit of cheese (losing coordination). All three of them used to snap, snap, snap! But no longer, the other two snap and catch the cheese in the air and Panda tries but it more often bounces off her nose and falls to the floor and another greedy dog gets her treat. I've started just placing her treat right in front of her nose so she won't lose it.
I've just given her the last of her medication so I've got to get her back into the vet for another thorough check up. I don't know what they can do for her, hopefully there is an Rx that can be taken daily to prevent seizures?
