"Hi everyone.  As some of you know, our dog Princess had K-9 Epilepsy.  Just before she passed away I found this terrific online list called The All Breed Canine  Epilepsy List . The purpose of Epil-K9 to is to discuss canine epilepsy and seizures.
Every year, the owners of the list put together a calendar to sell,
with picture of all of the dogs.  All money generated from the calendar
goes to the research that is used to try and find a cure for this
terrible disease.  Princess may just be one of the beautiful dogs featured in the calendar...don't know which month yet though.  You can view the beginning stages of this
years calendar by going to:
http://www.canine-epilepsy.com/Calendar2009.htmlThe
calendars are $22 (tax-deductible) and make a really great Christmas/Hanukkah gift (YES...the holidays are almost here!).  Please buy one or two (or more) if you can...it would really help us out a
lot.  To purchase the calendar, go to:
http://www.canine-epilepsy.com.  On the
left side of the page, click on the box that says "Epil-K9 Calendar
2009".Thanks so much!

I have a yellow lab mix that has epilepsy. I adopted him almost a year ago. He became very sick shortly after with a suspicion that he had distemper/encephalopathy. About 2 months after his recovery he started having seizures. He is currently on phenobarbital twice daily and is at a therapeutic level. He also takes potassium bromide once daily and is at a therapuetic level as well. However, he continues to have seizures every two weeks and they come now in clusters. We have had numerous visits to the Vet-ER. His vet is currently doing some research to find what the next step is medication wise. I have heard of dogs being on 4-5 medications for seizures.
Is there anyone who has had a similar experience that can offer any suggestions as to what medications have worked for your dog? I know neurontin and Keppra have been used. What is the potential expense I may be looking at.? Thank you

My dog had two seizures in two days. Casey is only 9 months old! The source was she was chewing golf balls, which are coated with lead-based paint. My vet never asked me about what she chewed. He never did a heavy metal toxins test. He refused to listen when I paid $800 for her overnight stay, which did not include a lead blood test. He simply said, "Labs get epilepsy. Put her on phenobarbital." Well, a day and a half on that poison, and she was crazy, hyperactive, up all night, didn't recognize me, back legs immobile. It's poison. Like all doctors, the vet only has two options---surgery or pills. IF YOUR DOG HAS SEIZURES, MOST TIMES IT HAS BEEN INGESTING METAL---aluminum, lead, mercury, cadmium, from commercial dog food, our environmental toxins, lawn fertilizer. I would urge you to DETOX your dog, no matter the age. Phenobarbital and potassium bromide treat the SYMPTOMS, not the cause.

thanks very much Sarah for the information; always good to throw different views out there since treating seizures is anything but an exact science.
