Avatar f tn Lyme disease typically results in chronic lameness and rarely, chronic kidney changes (mostly Labradors and Golden retrievers), and rarely causes meningitis. If it is meningitis, it's not chronic seizures - it's acute disease. it doesn't sound like it's from Lyme, honestly. I'm glad you were able to rescue him from what sounds like a terrible situation... and being that he lived to 14 (which is very geriatric for a shepherd-sized dog), it sounds like you were taking great care of him!
Avatar m tn The vet gave me a script for phenobarb. I am a RT in PICU here in Atl. So I have witness seizures in children but I never really was too aware of the side effects. Anyway, I am so worried about my boy being alone while I work 12 hour shifts. Is there any other substitute besides phenobarb? He doesn't even seem to know his name. I am devasted!

Avatar n tn Everytime I chance going to the store or the pharmacy, I dread going back into the house because I fear she'll be dead on the floor from falling or seizures or suicide. If I didn't have two golden retrievers to care for, I don't think I would survive. Please, please, please stop taking this drug before you end up like my wife!
