I'm so sorry for what this poor little baby is going through right now. I'll be praying for Biscuit as well.

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...

Hello SM Family!

We're deeply grateful for the overwhelming loves, hugs, supports and best wishes for our little boy Biscuit! And especially for us, his parents as well as Biscuit and us rough it out in the next few days.

Here is the latest on Biscuit conditions. Well he hasn't made any forward progress as far as decreasing the seizure activities. The only thing that keeps him from the constant seizures is heavy dose of PropoFlo to fully sedate him to stop the seizures. At one point between now and last night, he actually seem to gotten a little better by getting on all fours and was able to do his business but as soon as they lower the dose level of the PropoFlo, his seizures would return within 1-3mins. PropoFlo (propofol)

We got this assessment at around 8AM PST this morning and we told that we need to make a decision to elevate Biscuit treatment to the next critical level. The Neurologist and medical experts has assess and consulted on Biscuit condition and they now recommend we start to administer the drug called “Cytosar” http://www.bvns.net/up/file/BVNS_cytosar.pdf

They are going to start administer this drug and see how Biscuit respond in the next 12hrs. If his condition improves and the seizure decrease or stop all together, they will decrease the doses accordingly. They need to monitor and assess Biscuit’s conditions and responsiveness from today until at least Thursday. They are hoping for the best and that this step will actually be a positive help for our boy. If that is not the case, then they said to consider a decision to allow them to step into doing surgery on our boy. They said this is one of the last resorts where they will see if there is any chance or anything that can be done to eliminate the potential inflammation that is causing the seizures.

Ann and I are preparing for the worst and we’re still praying for our boy to make it out of this. We’re also hoping to get more perspectives and feedback on any known experiences and whether there maybe any other form of options and treatments we don’t know about that could give our boy a chance. If you wish to message me privately here is my email address vinhle68@gmail.com. Biscuit has been with us since he was born and was a healthy, lovable, and spoiled by his parents for good years. And suddenly in a short period of time, he went through some very rough experiences. We are heartbroken to see our boy suffer like this especially Ann. We are forever grateful to everyone for your overwhelming support, love, and hugs! :-)

I am so sorry there hasn't been any improvement yet and will continue to say prayers for Biscuit.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Praying for Biscuit , you and your wife. There is probably someone here who can help you, regarding the meds and different options. Hopefully someone will see this thread that has some experience with some similar situation.
