and Missy: Missy is a smooth coat "cute-as-a button" Jack Russell Terrier,
who came into my life in October of 2000. She was pickup up as a stray by our local
Humane Agent and I was asked to foster her until a new home could be found. He age
was determined to be approximately 3 to 5 years old. She was such a beautiful, sweet
little girl that she captured my heart and made herself a permanent home with me and my
three other dogs. Her grand mal cluster seizures began two weeks later and continued
to plague us every 14 to 16 days for several months.
Finally, with a combination of
Phenobarbital and potassium bromide the seizures began to wane. In April 2001, she
tested to be severely hypothyroid is is now also on Soloxine. Happily, her last
grand mal cluster seizure was March 14, 2001.
She thrives on loving
attention and companionship from dogs and humans alike and although she is deaf, I
consider her to be a wonderful little ball of energy who has brought many blessings in to
Food: 60 mg of Phenobarbital and 0.15 mg of Soloxine twice a day, 450 mg of
potassium bromide once a day. 2 mg of Melatonin nightly. Home cooking
including chicken, eggs and veggies.
