I have a 4 year old Siamese cat (named Bosko) that has presented with seizures and excessive drooling after the seizure. The seizures started 8 days ago and have progressively gotten worse. Initially there were 1-3 seizures and progressed to as many as 70 in a day. The seizures last less than 10 seconds but he seems to be in alot of agony after the episode. The vet thinks that he may have meningitis but his blood work came back within normal limits. We are currently giving him Metronidazole 66mg twice a day (started today before we were giving him ClindaCure 2cc twice a day). Prednisolone 5mg twice a day. Phenobarbital 30mg twice a day (we increased that ourselves initially 7.5 mg twice a day suppose to stop seizure but he is still having one every 1.5 -2 hours) and Ketoconazole 50mg twice a day (antifungal havenâ€™t given to him as of yet) also gave him 1 Ivermec syringe (Anti-parasitic). The vet has progressively increased the type and amount of meds to hopefully kill off whatever is making my cat ill. The vet started him on the antibiotics 3 days ago initially thought he was poisoned. He is eating and drinking and uses the litter like normal. Any advice on the type of ailment this might be and possible treatments.
