Robyn, I just read your post again and though I would mention this while I have the chance. What is your valium protocol? Keely always had cluster seizures, right from the very beginning. Her first day of seizures was four! And she's had up to three on other days. To beat the cycle, our specialist recommended one dose immediately during the seizure, then another dose 20 mins and 40 mins later. Since we've started doing this, we haven't had any clusters. We use the rectal valium. Now, I'm sure Nookie's dose would be a lot more that Keely's, but this might be an idea to ask about. Apparently the valium is metabolized (?) very quickly and it doesn't stay in the bloodstream. I think the extra doses help the system to stay calm. Anyways, it's worth a question to the vet.
