My 2 year Boxer had a seizure this past weekend, my husband and I were a nervous wreck. He had three grand mal seizures in about 5 hours time. We rushed him to the pet emergency. After a serious of tests and blood work the vet dteremined it is idiopathic epilepsy. They wanted to do a MRI but we don't have the extra 2 grand for that right now.. They started him on Phenobarb and the seizures are controlled. I am wondered if anyone has any stories of side effects there dog experienced when initally put on the pheno. Our dog is so disorientated. He knows his name and the sit command but thats about it. He won't go poop outside just pee. He will only poop inside. His tail isn't wagging and he drools all the time. I talked to the vet and she said its all normal for the first couple of weeks of the medicine. I don't want to seem paranoid but just wonder if anyone else had similar experiences? I just want my baby back!
