Hello & welcome. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

I am very sorry to hear that Tanya has has these signs despite your thorough care. In regards ***** ***** for her seizures alongside her history, we'd be worried that the accumulating metabolites/toxins in her blood from her poor kidney filtration are climbing despite the fluids being given. Therefore, it would be ideal to ring her vet now about dosing with fluids again now or even considering having her see for IV fluids. And if she is seen, they can just ensure there are no other issues (ie brain bleeds, tumors, etc) playing a role here.

Otherwise, you may wish to have them recheck her bloods to see how much this has progressed. As well, you may want to discuss trying toxin binding medications (ie Azodyl), medications to improve kidney function (ie Semintra, Benazepril) +/- phosphate binders. These can all help better manage kidney disease and reduce this type of side effect. So, we'd want to at least ring her vet about this sign of deterioration to address this and prevent any more seizures for her.

All the best,

Dr. B.
