Minx made 17days until her last fit which she had not long after I had returned home and then7hrs later she Had another Now made 3 days we have had another
. I am going to horrible and wait for the next fit, if it comes with-in the next 14days then I put her on full meds. It is so hard to decide what to do

I love my dogs

So sorry to hear about Minx having more fits..
Have you spoke to the vet since you arrived home about putting Minx on stronger meds.

I would be phoning him/her and having a word about the meds
Sending (((((Hugs)))) for you and Minx. <3 <3 <3 <3

Poor Minx they must be taking their toll on her as they seem to be getting closer together,she must be bewildered after shes come round.hope the vets can sort them out.

Sue we took Minx before I went to the UK and he said that if her fits are getting so close then we need to put her on full meds, he said 14day she goes on full med and I grinned she made made 17days but then it was 7 hrs and now 3days.
It´s my choice about her meds I keep her on valium which she is obviously getting used to, or I put her on her on the next stage, phenobarbitone which will destroy her liver and kidney-

great choice <??

Kay she has aged in the last month as she is now so quiet and unsure.

,,,,,fits in animals are horrible.

Its a big choice.-----

Jude Minx has many years to go yet, my tears will be that her life will never be the same and once I put her on full meds then I know I shorten her life. But without she could die in a fit now.
Time to cry and time to decide which way to shorten her life. I actually want to keep her off meds she will live longer but if her fits are too close together then I have no choice but to control them.

The cry time for me is the decision that I have to make :-(

Thinking of you, Uzzi, as you worry over the decision you have to make, it's Hobson's choice really isn't it?
