The poor little guy has been through so much in his short life, I do hope this does the trick!

Ok it has now been almost 3 days since we started the new medicine and Squeeker is doing great! He is no longer seizuring and is more active than he has been in a while. I am having his ears checked for ear mites again today and hopefully all will be well. I am just so happy that we may have finally found the right trick! I was worried that since we are going on vacation soon that we would not be able to leave if he was still not regulated. I will be boarding him at his veterinarian and she said she may even take him to her house for a while just so he can run and play, but I am really not worried about him anymore so that should be great! Thanks everyone for helping him get through this!

I’m glad for both of you. I’m curious, which was the right dosage for him?

Wow, such good news! Your little man is really something. Hope this med continues to do the trick; poor Squeeker's been thru enough.

I am not sure what you mean by whichi is the right dose for him-he is now on 2 medications, Phenobarbital 0.7mls twice daily and Clonazipam 0.25 mls twice daily-I am thinking that the Clonazipam is the one that is working best but who knows, if all continues to go well I will rechk bloodwork next week sometime and see the neurologist in 6 weeks.

Sorry, I was curious to know how many mg of pheno was enough to stop the seizures on a 2.5lb cat. But I see it’s in a liquid dosage.

Anyway, I’m very happy to know that your kitty is doing well.

We are currently trying to keep him at a mg/pound so as he continues to grow I will constantly be changing the dose. I am hoping to slowly wean him off of the Pheno and keep him on the Clonazipam which is better for him anyways, less side effects and no yearly bloodwork-which he HATES!

Okay time for a Squeeker update: it has now been one week seizure free and he could not be doing any better! I am so glad we may have finally found the right combination. I have set up a rechk with the neurologist at the end of August and at that point we will start weaning him off the Phenobarbital. I am also glad because we go on vaction the first part of September and we will be boarding him at the vet, therefore they can wean him off the drugs while under close supervison and are there to help if he gets into trouble! Then the hard part is over when I get back from vacation and I pick up where he left off on the new plan of action! I hate messing with drugs it scares me that I may screw up even though I am a vet tech! As you can see Squeeker finally made it into the signature thanks to Cagnes and our Fab 5 has now turned into a Six pack!!!! Thanks for everyones good thoughts and prayers over these last few hard weeks!

Yay for Squeeker!!, and I'm so happy to see him in your siggy
post #72 of 89
Yippee! So glad Squeeker is doing well, and sincerely hope the new meds keep him seizure free. Love his pic; he looks just like one of our new girls, Bridget. She's tiny like Squeeker, too; only 1.5 lbs. Hope you enjoy your vacation--you've certainly earned one!
post #73 of 89
Squeeker is in your siggy and doing much better too?
Way to go Squeeker.
post #74 of 89
That's terrific news! This little guy really is determined to make it.

If you ask my opinion he just wanted to keep fighting so that he knew he would make it into the signature! He also asked that I make sure everyone knows how cute he is and where all the good thoughts were going to-SO THANKS EVERYBODY!!!!!
post #76 of 89
Aw he is so sweet. Give him lovin' from me.
post #77 of 89
Is there an update on Squeeker? I've been wondering about the little guy.
Hope everything is going well with him.

Thanks for asking-he is doing GREAT! He has had a few small seizures this week but nothing too major. I have him on both Phenobarbital and Clonazipam, I think the Clonazipam is what is doing the trick. I have an appointment scheduled with the neurologist at the end of Aug. and since we are going on vacation in early Sept. we will be boarding him at the vet, and while we are gone they will try to wean him off the Pheno. He has now reached the 3.5 pound mark and is all legs!! He is kinda at that goofy awkward 12 yr old boy stage. He is still as cute as can be though, just keep praying for no more seizures and that he will grow up to be a big strong kitty~
post #79 of 89
Yea for Squeeker! Glad he's doing so well; hopefully he'll grow out of the seizures entirely. Wow--3.5 lbs! Sounds as if he's growing like a weed.

Ok here we are again asking for prayers and good thoughts. It has been almost a month since Squeeker's last seizure and he had been doing great, but I just got back from taking him to the vet to admit him for the evening. He had 4 grand mal seizures in less than an hour. I just don't understand, one minute he is fine and the next his poor little brain is going haywire!!! I am hoping that he stays seizure free overnight and we can bring him home tomorrow. I have an appointment scheduled with the neurologist next week and wouldn't ya know it we are almost ready to leave town. Please keep all fingers crossed we are not going backwards in our progress.

I will add you and squeeker to my prayer list. Good vibes coming your way from me and my babies!
post #82 of 89
As a cat owner who is going through a tough time with my cat as well as somebody who randomly had a seizure at work this year, you can count on being in my prayers.

Best wishes to you and your little Squeak.

I talked with the vet about 6 pm this evening and so far no more seizures. They placed an IV catheter and will keep him for a seizure watch tonight. I am also having them run more bloodwork to make sure everything is okay. I am keeping my fingers crossed he will be okay and be able to come home tomorrow. They did say he was still having facial twitches, not a good sign but hopefully once he is under control they will stop as well.

Good Luck and God bless to lil Squeeker!!

Just got home from the vet with Squeeker-he did not have anymore seizures last night but some facial twitching. I had them run bloodwork and everything came out just great!! It sounds like I just did not have him at the appropriate dose for his weight-I have been weighing him on a weekly basis and adjusting his doses accordingly, but not fast enough I guess. I will be more diligent about it and hopefully he will remaing seziure free.
post #87 of 89
Wow, I hope it turns out to be something that simple! Got my fingers crossed that Squeeker improves big-time.
post #88 of 89
Wow, I hope the increased dosage helps. Sending healing vibes for sqeeker and keep your chin up vibes for you.

Hugs & calming purrs for sweet Squeeker. ((((hugs))))
