We have a 5 year old female cat named Sammy.
4 months ago she had 2 or 3 seizures. Here eyes would dialate and she would drool heavily. After it was over (about 30 seconds) she would meow very loudly for about 20 seconds.
We took her to the vet and they said if it keeps happening then come back and we can try meds.
Well we went 4 months without a single seizure. However, they are back and back with a vengence! She started having them on Friday and since then, the siezues have only increased in frequency...
We took her to the vet because they seemed to be happening almost every 10 - 15 minutes. The Doc gave her a shot of Vallum to stop the immediete effects. It just seemed to numb the situation.
She is also on the epilepsy med that I can't think of now, but it seems to only reduce the severity of the seizures. They still seem to happen, but the cat just meows a little every once in a while. Thats how we can tell it is still happening.
At this point we feel like we are running out of time as the cat mostly acts like it is in a trance, or lost. It is very sad. We are wondering if the cat has even been sleeping at all during the past 3 days.
We took the cat to the ER over the weekend in order to get some help before our regular vet was back in the office. They gave her another shot of vallum, and some vallum tablets we could use if needed.
The vet got the blood work back and said there were no irregularities which is disappointing as we still don't know what the problem is.
So now, the doctor says to wait for the meds to start working. If they don't work then we can attempt to see a specialist(neurologist) and probably have to get an MRI.
At this point the cat just seems to wonder around and acts as if it doesn't even recognize us and even seems like it is having problems seeing.
So thats where we are now. If something doesn't start to help soon then I am afraid we might have to take more drastic steps.
