I have a 3 year old cat named Echo who was diagnosed today after having two sever seizures in the last two days. Her blood work showed nothing that would be causing the seizures. They started her on medication to control the seizures today and I was allowed to go see her for a short five minute period. She looked very disoriented, and out of sorts. Actually, she acted drunk. I was told that it could be a side effect of the medication, or that she might have some brain damage. The vet seems very reluctant to give me any positive answers about anything. I need to know how I can tell if she has brain damage and what I can do. I would also appreciate any information that i could get about the epilepsy. I know that it is very rare in cats, and it can be treated, but what are the side effects of the drugs and the seizures and is there anything I can do to counteract the side effects of the drugs. Please help. I am so worried about my cat.
