We have a final diagnosis of Idiopathic Epilepsy.
Her blood work was sent off to
Auburn for special testing
for levels of Zonisamide
this will continue to be monitored every 4-6 months.
food types and flavors played little or no part in pet seizures.
If the animal was sensitive to things such as this,
it would most likely occur only once.
We did learn how little is invested in CATS
health as opposed to dogs.
There just are not enough studies to get
clear absolute information on drug reactions
and disease prevention and care.
We are also thankful that her primary veterinarians
are very proactive with EASTERN medicine,
combined with western medicine and
their continuing education on whole food nutrition.
All we can say is, that once we added
the Chinese herbal supplement in the evening,
she has been seizure free.
We end 2016 with a rather heavy heart.
Mae went from being a healthy six year old cat
to one that will need medication
for the rest of her life.
We have lost so many extremely talented
people this year...but that's all part
of life isn't it?
It reminds us to live in the moment
celebrate each day as our gift!
Hugs and blessings to you all.....
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
