Side Effects Of Phenobarbitol?
My cocker will be 13 in December, she recently spent 12 days with her vet in his hospital, for grand mal seizures. She had an occasional seizure (maybe one every 4 to 6 months). Then when all of this happened, the seizures that simply would not stop, the vets only alternative was to get her regulated on a daily schedule of phenobarbital.
It has taken a while for her to come out of the stupor that was being caused by her meds, but she seems to be doing well. No seizures for over 6 weeks now. During the seizures, she became quite deaf, and lost most of what was left of her eyesight. Now I am wondering if the phenobarbital is making things worse or if the fact that she is nearly 13 is the cause of her deafness/sight loss.
During the time the seizures were going on, she was having a continuous seizure for over 32 hours.
Anyone out there with any new theories on this?
Dumplin' is my best friend and companion and I would do anything for her well being - she is family and deeply loved.
