Customer Question
He's 10 years old...

He's 10 years old and being treated for seizures with Zonismide and this evening he is uncoordinated and cannot walk. The vet says this is a side affect of the drug so I'm doing some research on your site.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?

Hunter

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Hunter?

Hes not having the convulsive seizures ... more like he's not there and slobbering with out stretched legs its not easy to explain lol He's not had any for a few days now that we've changed his meds he takes 100 mg x2 in the morning and x3 at night ... 12 hour intervals
