Re: Needing any info on Epiphen?

Hi Wendy

Thanks for the reply , is the Milk Thistle in tablet form and how does it work? I have to say he is much better on the Epiphen but did raise concerns about the liver damage and the Vet said he will need full blood tests every six months.

Needing any info on Epiphen?

Hello one and all, I'm back posting about Doogle and his seizures. He has had a bad one this time and our Vet has decided to medicate with Epiphen to try and reduce the frequency of these awful episodes. Done a bit of research online about this product and I know one or two of you have mentioned Epi...

Re: Again i'm back about Seizures

Hi Wendy The lab results for Doogle have all come back negative and the Vet rang to say if he has another episode she will consider medication now with Phenobarbital in some form and he will have to be closely monitored . The brain scan issue was to determine any Tumours , however, I would not put m...

Re: Again i'm back about Seizures

Thank you Linny and Wendy for your replies We do have Rectal Diazepam which I use when he has a seizure, however it's not stopping them. I've read up on the types of medication being used and I can't see why they won't trial him on maybe a mild form to see what the results may be. I'm just waiting f...

Again i'm back about Seizures

Hello all I need some advice regarding seizures in my lovely boy Doogle as he seems to be having more, in fact three over a period of three weeks or so. Took him to the Vet and he's taken more blood samples just waiting for the last two results to come back- meanwhile we have no meds to control thes...

Re: Poorly Dood

We are wishing Kobi a speedy recovery at our home as I know how hard it is when they are sick.

The worst part is seeing them ill but i'm sure he will know how much you love him and are doing your best to get him through.


In my prayers Kobi


Sue.

Re: Sick Doodle

Thankyou all for your kind thoughts, Doogle seems to be recovering albeit he's had to have loads of medicine. All his tests have come back as negative for Pancreatitis and Addisons for which he had a specific med called Sycathen I think, which proves 100% no Addison symtoms found . So it looks like ...

Re: Sick Doodle

Doogle is nearly six years old and the Vet has said the next step is an X Ray and Endoscopy to determine what's going on inside. We are now into the third day and he still won't eat voluntarily however I have a liquid recovery food which he finds easier to digest at the moment. We have another appoi...

Re: Poorly Dood

I hope your boy gets better soon , it's so awful when they get sick. Doods seem to get all sorts of illnesses I've found , most of the posts seem to be poorly dogs.

All we can do is a fast track to the Vet and give lots of love to our fur babies.

Re: Sick Doodle

Well, he had to go back in for more tests, still poorly and this time they will test for Pancreatitis and Addisons. The vomiting and non eating is pointing to intolerance maybe as his first lot of tests didn't throw up any infection so i'm praying something will come out of today's testing. I love h...

Re: Coughing dog

Thank you for your reply, to add on he had a seizure last night which he gets periodically but I'l get him to Vet this week for a check up. The cough is like a human cough but since the seizure it's stopped, maybe just coincidence?

Hoping I can get him sorted poor lad.
