Re: Possible epilepsy?

Oh wow! That is a similar story, how amazing. Yes we were wondering the same if he'd had a big fit and simply just got list or did something in him tell him to get away from the medication. It's so strange and yes, something we will never know. Charlie is going back out now and seems to be completel...

Re: Possible epilepsy?

Hello....thought it was about time I did a little update. So to recap a little.. Charlie had been acting odd for a week, having seizures for a weekend, diagnosed with epilepsy and given medication. Was given medication for a week, showed massive signs of improvement and then he vanished. Gone withou...

Re: Possible epilepsy?

Well the inevitable has happened. Charlie had been popping out and back in and really not going far out the garden. We were locking him in at night and when we were not here. Last night he got out just after 10pm and has not come home. He was sighted in a garden up the road this morning but he has n...

Re: Possible epilepsy?

A short term update... The tablets seem to be doing their job brilliantly. I know we are not out the woods yet but Charlie has made a massive improvement!! After the vets on Monday he seemed fine and quiet but I guess after sunday he was going to have a quiet day anyway. From the evening he started ...

Re: Possible epilepsy?

Thank you all for your fusses and positive words. It really does help. As I said I had honestly never heard of a cat having epilepsy and I've had cats all my life. It certainly is an eye opener as to how common it is. Thank you for sharing your experiences, I certainly feel happier now that I did wh...

Re: Possible epilepsy?

We are home from the vets with epiphen tablets and diazepam anal gel to bring him out of a prolonged seizure. Back in a month for review bloods. Vet is confident he will be able to lead a normal life of going out providing we get the medication balance right. So we will give him the chance he deserv...

Re: Possible epilepsy?

Hi Ruth, thank you for your reply. You have actually put my mind at a little more ease. I hadn't even considered about the microchip details. Did your Fred just carry on going out as normal? I am coming to realise it's quite common the more I have read, it's honestly not something I have even consid...

Re: Possible epilepsy?

Thank you. Your answer is the one that is already in my mind really. Epilepsy is more probable unless he does have a raging fever that is too strong for antibiotics but he is too well to have a fever. He is eating us out of house and home and all other functions are normal. I'm not sure what else co...

Possible epilepsy?

Hi all, I am new here so hello :-) I apologise in advance if there are threads on this already, I honestly haven't looked. I have read so much info over the last few days I really don't know what I am reading any more. Has anyone here had any experience of keeping a cat with epilepsy? It's looking p...
