My golden just turned 13 May 4. About 18 months ago, he started having grand mal seizures. he is taking phenobarb and potassium bromide which is controlling seizures fairly well. He also suffers from arthritis and is also on Rimadyl. He is beginning to have problems walking and steadying himself while urinating which our vet believes is due to neurological as opposed to the arthritis. He seems to go through cycles and when at his worst, he trembles and is very weak. Our vet started giving him shots of an antibiotic, Baytril, for a another problem and we found he stops trembling and actually wants to go for short walks after getting the shots. We don't think this is a coincidence and are trying to get the vet to continue to give the shots. But regardless, his overall condition continues to worsen. Our vet feels his current weakness, imbalance and awkward gait is due to neurological problems rather than the arthritis and he maintains our guy is not in any real pain. We are hoping there is some answer to helping him as he is still a very strong dog with a good disposition.
