Rowdy UpdateJuly 31, 2012 10:32 pm General
We took Rowdy to the Vet on Friday 7/27 and he was diagnosed as Epileptic and given Phenobarbital. We have had to adjust the dosage 3 times since Friday because he was to sedated with the higher dosage and he is on a 1/4 pill every 12 hours now and he has not had any further seizures now since Friday morning at 6AM. Each day he is progressing a little bit more and showing more interest in things around him, and that includes my son who Rowdy just loves totally. When Matt came home from work, Rowdy went running to meet him and to see him be happy to see him make me almost cry. I pray that he continues to improve, but I also am aware that the disease is a roller coaster ride and constantly has its ups and downs, right now we are pampering him even more than we normally did. We also changed his diet and doing some home cooking for him which consist mostly of chicken, potatoes and carrots in a broth and he just loves it and its much better for him. Going to try him on the BLUE line of dog foods since they are preservative and grain free and hope they help to control this disease.
