Maggie needs power of the paw

This is a special place for pups to share their love and support for each other during difficult times; it's a place to light candles, give the "Power of the Paw," and let everyfur know they are never ever alone.

Maggie my four year old husky has been doing well but this morning I found her having a seizure. She has had two so far and I am planning to get her in to see the vet again. This has got me really worried now. Hope to be able to get these seizures under control

Oh, I hope you can get Maggie's seizures under control. Good to get to the vet ASAP as you seem to be doing since she has seized a few times on the same day. If she is not on meds perhaps it can be managed and controlled that way.

Also, I have literally seen some dogs become nearly seizure free if a diet change is made. Not sure how and what you feed but you may want to look into that too, while you and the vet probably use some med to control/stop the seizing.

I had one siberian with seizures related to Cushings and her pituitary gland. At age 14 we had to make a tough decision because she was strong physically, but she was not herself at all, and even had trouble drinking water.

I'm sure the vet will suggest an anti-convulsant for you to give her, and then maybe look at her diet. I believe I had read somewhere that a person who switched their dog to grain free food saw a significant reduction in seizures.

Good luck, and keep us posted. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope for a positive resolution. hug

So far she has been on Primidone for a few days and it seems to be helping. We feed Taste Of The Wild High Prairie for her once a day. She needs to diet per her former vets order. The vet prescribed Primidone 250mg 2xs a day for the next week starting last Thursday with a follow up call this week. She will be taken down to one a day after this if it works. I am worried but she seems to be doing well so far. Keeping my fingers crossed. That and praying for her every night. My husband teases me saying that I am a worry wart because I am so worried about my baby girl.
