I am so sorry Biscuit and your family are having to go this. I hope that Biscuit's condition will stabilize and get better.

I am wondering if something causes the seizures?

Like a change in routine? Or even something small that you may not think significant enough to cause problems.

I remember I worked for a family with an epileptic dog... any added stress or excitement would cause seizures.

Still praying for Biscuit.... Really hoping the meds work. Seizures will happen still... but hoping the meds do what they need to.

I couldn't open the files ( security-block). I have never had to endure watching a beloved pooch go thru seizures...it is one of my biggest fears, but I did intend to watch so have a better understanding.
My heart goes out to you... and to precious little Biscuit!
Will continue praying that the proper combo of meds can be found to keep them from happening or at very least less frequent and they be mild if they do happen.

I so hope that you can find the right combo of meds to help your little baby. Have you taken Biscuit to a large veterinary teaching hospital (vet school) for an evaluation? The best of the best vets can be found there and they have lots of experience with the very toughest cases.

I am sorry Biscuit had three seizures in a short span of time. He really looks great for a fluff who is going through so much and also being so medicated. My heart goes out to you with all that you have been through and wish that he can be stabilized and live his life. Hugs and continued prayers to you, Ann and Biscuit.

Hi Ivy, Yes we are actually following the treatment and consultation from a special neurologist based in Boston MA, Dr. Allen Sisson, and we are working with a staff of experienced Vetinerians at the Adobe Animal Hospital in Los Gatos, CA near my work.

Hi Terry,

My best guess would be probably a security setting on your computer could be blocking the download or access. If you still like to see the videos, then my best suggestion is for you to open a free www.dropbox.com account and then I can shared the file directly with you. It's very easy to setup. If you like to do this, send me an email to vinhle69@gmail.com and provide me with your email address and I'll refers you to dropbox. Dropbox is a secured online Cloud Data hosting solution.

Vinh, I have read all, if not almost all, of what you have written about Biscuit & his case. I also have followed other stories (Pam's, Sammie's & Suzan R's) w/this same illness. I have even met a few random people who are treating this same issue. I still feel I have SO much to learn about it. I admire your attempt to help educate us & the public.
I do think the seizures are "the nature of the beast" & something that can maybe be kept under "control" for a while & then suddenly just revert to repetition again---without any apparent cause. Heartbreaking to say the least.
So try to hang in there & maybe all this research will help others to help others to help others. Bless you.
