Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi this is Dr. Aaron
Please let me know when you're available.
How old was your dog when he started having seizures?
How much Keppra does he take? How often? Is it the extended release (XR) Keppra?
Is he on any other medication currently?
Is his nose still bleeding?
How much does he weigh?
How many seizures has he had since the beginning of August?
I'm not worried about nose bleeding if it has stopped.
2 or more seizures per month is usually the threshold at which we will consider adding an additional anti-seizure medication (such as Phenobarbital, Potassium Bromide, Zonisamide).
I would consider talking to your local vet about the possibility of adding an additional medication.
Is there anything else I can help you with this evening?
Once you are satisfied with my help this evening I would greatly appreciate a positive rating so that I may be compensated for my time.
Take care and have a good night!
It can happen with seizures if they hit their head on the ground...otherwise it shouldn't occur. If the bleeding continues then I would take him to your local vet for an exam but I wouldn't expect it to continue to occur.
