Mini Australian Shepherd Is On Epilepsy Meds, Still Having Seizures, And Has Fleas
After taking Simperica chewable flea tabs, my 4-year-old red merle Mini Aussie developed epileptic seizures.
The vet put her on Phenobarbital tabs 2x daily. Seizures started again in 2 months and Keppra 1/2 tab 3 times day was added. At that time we were told to stop Simperica and use topical Frontline plus.
Two months later cluster seizures reoccur. Potassium bromide tabs, 2 tabs daily were prescribed.
Aussie now has loss of motor skills in hind legs. She also has fleas and scratches/bites clumps of fur making sore places on her legs and trunk.
What should I do about motor skill loss and prevention of fleas tormenting her? I don’t want her to die from epileptic seizures!
