Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Do you mean she has convulsions or seizures?

Were her original signs appetite loss and lethargy before the treatment?

Did the ER do any tests (ie bloods, xray, etc)? What were their findings?
