Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
I am sorry to hear chevy is not doing well. Has he had seizures for a long time or just recently?
the only 2 i know of has been his when i took him to the vet. i have taken him to the same vet for the last 12 years. i take him in about every 8 week to get his toe nails done. i know he is old, this morning he is doing a lot of pacing
I see. The seizures are very alarming. Given his age, the seizures are most likely due to a brain tumor.
Unfortunately, there is no way to diagnose this without an MRI. And even with a diagnosis, there is no treatment for a brain tumor except supportive care for nausea and vomiting if that pops up
Your vet can give you some steroid medication which can help to make him a little bit more comfortable, and can give medication to reduce the likelihood of more seizures in the immediate future
Do you have any questions for me?
ok, i just want him to be comfortable,
I think steroids may make him very comfortable
it will increase his appetite and increase his comfort
thank you for your help
you are very welcome. Please feel free to reply back with any questions or concerns. Have a great day!
