We had tried lowering her dose of Pheno, but she seized within two days. A couple months ago we (with our vet) added a second med, Zonisamide. Zoey was still having cluster seizures, so it was an attempt to stop those, but also to ween her off the Pheno. After success with that (no more clusters!), we added another med, Levetiracetam. Both are anticonvulsants commonly used to treat Epilepsy in humans, with great success.
