This past summer I wrote about Remi having siezures. He was having petite mal and they were far and few between. You can read about it here. And see him having a siezure here.
I had to take the Rem-ster to the vet this morning. His seizures have been increasing in numbers, strength and length over the past month or so. Over this past weekend alone he had 5 grand mal and 2 episodes of near staticus epilepticus.
So he's on phenobarbitol twice a day and we have pill and liquid valium for sustained seizures that wont stop.
The vet had talked to me about doing some special testing for a condition called liver shunting. Although not common, its not uncommon in large breeds; Labs being one of them. Remi has a lot of the symptoms of this condition, but blood work is the only way to really find out. So she drew the bloodwork for general chemistry and this special liver function testing. Results tomorow.
$245.00 later he's home resting comfortably with his first dose of Phenobarbitol on board. We'll see how it goes.
Say a little prayer for my baby boy please.
