    I have a 10 yr old mini schnauzer who was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy in Oct 2019. He has been on phenobarbital and Keppra since then and has had no seizures. However his hearing got bad the last few weeks and he is now completely dead. Is there any relation between epilepsy causing deafness? Thanks

  2. My friend has a two year old American Staff Terrier, he is all white with one blue & one green eye…he has begun having seizures a few weeks ago. The vet is saying it is allergies and gave him a shot for the allergies. He was whining, shivering, & looking a bit redder around his nose & eyes…then had another seizure this morning. Any advice on what their next step could be? She is about to have a baby in a few weeks. I worry for her, the baby, and the precious dog.

    Our best advice would be to seek a second opinion from another veterinarian, preferably a Board-certified neurologist.

    Pam, this is a good question for your veterinarian or for a Board-certified neurologist. Always feel free to call your vet with questions–that’s what they’re there for!
