|Beverly and Grasshopper: I adopted Grasshopper, a Rat Terrier, in
May '96 after his new owners decided they couldn't care for a tiny four month old
puppy. Just after his 2nd birthday, he began having seizures which progressed into
clusters. For about 6 months he was moderately controlled with Phenobarbital alone
but seizures started
coming more frequently.
On Nov. 1, 1999, we added Potassium Bromide. So far, it has been great. Last
Oct. 31, '99. At 10 lbs, Grasshopper is my little sweetie!
Medications and food: 24.3mg
Phenobarbital twice a day, 250mg Potassium Bromide once a day, and 0.1 mg Soloxine twice a
He eats Innova dry with fresh produce.
