Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there. My name is***** to hear that Queso is having troubles. I will do my best to help with your question. First I have a few questions to help me better understand your situation.
How long has he been on Temril-P?
Has Queso been active or seizured today? Is it possible he sustained a big know to his chest?
It sounds like Queso has either sustained some trauma during a recent seizure episode or is showing some problem with blood clotting (causing a bruise to become larger than it normally would). I have had a look into the known side effects of Keppra and Temaril-P. There does not appear to be any known drug interaction between the two drugs. Also, neither drug is reported to have the adverse drug effect of causing clotting disorders.
This is not to say that an adverse effect cannot occur. But it may be a rare effect that has previously not been observed. It would be a good idea to contact the vet who prescribed the keppra today and report back to them. That way, if it is confirmed to be a drug effect, it can be reported to the drug company and become a known potential effect.
Bleeding disorders can be a serious emergency due to loss of blood. Bleeding can occur within the body and be difficult to initially detect. If you do notice any additional unexplained bruises, bloodshot eyes, pale/white gum colour, blotchy gum colour, or signs of lethargy or breathing difficulty, please take Queso to a local vet sooner rather than later.
