every one, i am an owner of an 1.7 mnths male old Labrador, who is currently suffering from epilepsy. and i wish to know if any vets or other dog owners who might have gone through the same plight.
Actually my dog has been a weak one as a pup itself (current weight of approx 19 kgs). I have changed 3 vet doctors and strangely non have been able to clearly eliminate or diagnose his problems and it is very painful to see your dog suffer such pains.
currently ie: since past 2 weeks he has been having FITS, which generally last from 2 - 5 mins and during this attack the dog usually stretches his body, the eyes dilate and turn black and he stretches his neck towards his tail, almost whole body stiffens and he literally cries in pain. as per doctors advice i have put him on GARDINAL-30 mg dose (which i fluctaute to 15 mg depending on the days). The maximum number of fits he has had were 8 fits on one single day. and till date in the past 2 weeks he has had 4 days when fits occured.
So i wish to know if there is something i should do. I have had his BLOOD examined and following is the report.
I sincerely request if any vets can give me a second opinion because I am strangely finding it hard that doctors around here aren;t able to do much.
DETAILS of Blood report:
Haemoglobin - 10.4
T RBC:- 3.8 Million/mm3
PCV (haematocrit):- 32
Platelet Count:- 2,15,000 / mm3
ESR (1st HR) :- 27 MM BY W/G
SGOT:- 77 U/L
SGPT:- 98 U/L
I hope this helps.
also to let you know, that when the pup was young one of the vets here advised me that he has DYSTEMPER as he was largely suffering from fever and breating problem as a kid. Howver the latter vets refused the ruling.
I know changing vets so often shouldn't be advisable but once the fits started i was finding the previos doctors giving up on him. however the current vet seems to be confident to what he is doing and it is he who advised me to get the blood tested.
Thus to cut the story short i would realy really appreciate if some one can give me a second opinion based on the blood report.
YOUR HELP WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
searching for answers online seems to be the last hope left for me.
