Robyn! I am so sorry I didn't see this sooner. I'm at the dentist now and have logged in on my Blackberry for the first time in months. I'll write you a real response this evening, but there is another thread where I detailed all of Keely's meds. She's on zonisamide now, which is not available in Canada but we import from the States. It's been a lifesaver with only one seizure since she started it at the beginning of December. This is amazing considering they were as frequent as one a week before. The zonisamide has no liver effects as far as my vet has advised, though the phenobarb is catching up on the poor thing now and she's had some elevated liver values. We're reducing the pheno now and no breakthrough seizures thus far. I would recommend talking to your vet about the Zonisamide. It's a new-ish drug and new for dogs... But our specialist in St. Hyacinth recommended it after we were unsuccessful with the phenobarb alone, and with adding the Keppra and the Potassium Bromide. Will write more later! Please let me know if you have any specific questions.
