Re: New -- Barb and Harriet

It has been a long time since I've posted here. I can't believe it has been almost six years since my first worried post after Harriet was diagnosed with diabetes. I'm happy to say that she's still...

Re: Seizures?

I guess we'll have to wait and see what the vet says tomorrow. She has slept most of the day today and had a few episodes. We've been keeping the house fairly dark and quiet because that seems to...

Re: Seizures?

I had started the Surolan quite a while before the screaming started. She has been prescribed Surolan a number of times and never had a reaction, so I don't think it's that. If it's pain, it must...

Re: Seizures?

Thanks, jesse girl. I took a look at some of the videos and she doesn't go stiff or "paddle", like some of the dogs in the videos do. But when I read about "petit mal" seizures, there are a lot of...

Re: Blood in urine

Thanks, everyone. My vets are general vets but each of the team of three has a specialty. Ironically, the one who is Harriet's primary vet has diabetes himself. It's quite a sophisticated practice...

Re: Blood in urine

I definitely think she's not getting a long enough course of antibiotics. We've had cultures every time we go to the vet and there is always infection present. They keep only giving me a one-week...
