    DefaultSeizures

    My black lab had his first seizure one week before his 3rd birthday. He then had one 10 days later then the last one (thank God) 5 days later. He did have blood work and every thing came back normal. The Vet wanted to start him on Phenobarbital after the 2nd seizure, but I didn't because of the side effects. If he had more seizures I would have no choice to start him on the meds. My question is Would you guys start him on the Phenobarbital or would you wait and see what happens and do most Vets start them on the meds that quick?
    Thanks!

    My last lab, Tucson, started having grand mal seizures at about 5. Her lab work also came back normal. I insisted on the phenobarbitol telling the vet that I would get it from my brother if he didn't prescribe it. Once she started on the meds she never had another seizure and there were no other side effects.

    I would also run a thyroid panel on this dog. Sometimes the seizures can be a result of the thyroid being off.
