New seizures older golden help!
Hello, my golden Romeo is 10 years old. He's my heart and soul along with his brother.... in a nut shell, Romeo began having seizures in late October and has had a pattern of about one every 3 weeks or so. Of course this traumatized the entire family seeing him go through this. He gets stiff(2times he was sleeping at onset), convulsions, aggressive paddling, loss of bladder, foaming at mouth, guteral moans...just heart breaking. This lasts at most 2min. Then an hour of pacing, ataxia real bad, hunger, thirst, disoriented...then a lot of sleep, then back to himself. The emergency vet wanted me to give him keppra, but being a nurse seeing what the side effects of my human patients, I just couldn't. When I took him to his normal vet he said he would use KBr only to control seizures, that he has had a lot of success controlling and even in some cases stopping the seizures all together. My problem is I want to and have began using CBD canna pet, but he has had one seizure since being on the CBD for only 3weeks. Is there anyone with experience medicating their fur babies with KBr only? Please help!! I'm sooo Leary because he already has ataxia and I don't want to make things worse. Thank you anyone that can input!!!
All tests came back normal including chest X-ray and ultrasound (upon taking him in for his first seizure vet found a testicular tumor which he is going to be neutered...no metastasis signs). But vet wants him on KBr 3weeks before we do surgery so he can get a semi therapeutic level. We are directed to use a loading dose at first. But how safe is this med....I'm scared.
