I'm sorry to hear of this with your collieX. Please clarify "...has left hypere he paces constantly". Aimless pacing is pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of encephalopathy (brain disorder) involving his forebrain - cerebrum and thalamus. Considering his seizure history, I need to consider that permanent brain damage has occurred. Administering an anticonvulsive drug such as phenobarbital, levetiracetam, or zonisamide should be considered at this time.
