thanks for all your stories about phenobarbitol side effects in dogs
thanks for sharing your pheno side effect stories...our Dog has been on pheno for 2 and 1/2 weeks...she is 11, a lab mix....I had begun to think the side effects might be because of a posssible tumor, which the vet suggested may be the cause of the seizures...(note, she had ACL surgery 2months ago..did anesthesia have a hand in this) ....the pheno has stopped the seizures, but she is a mess, weak hind legs, disoriented, lethargic, forgets where she is going...breathes heavily, sits up for long periods of time...instead of resting in a laying position...I plan to contact vet (new to us for 1 year, since we just moved)..I want to change her to Keppra or other...our old vet of 17 years suggested this as a possibility..she does not use phenobarbitol. We have changed her diet to meat and veggies...our decision...leaving out wheat, grains...this should be better for her according to some holistic research I did. I sure hated seeing her have the seizures...but will explore new drug asap. Hang in there .
