Medical Summary Dog presents as an owner surrender with a history of cluster seizures. Evaluated by the AMC on 07/10/15. Pup’s first seizure was soetime in May and she’s had intermitent seizure throughout June. Lucy had gone without a seizure for 2 weeks, until the dauy of her presentation to the AMC (2 seizures on that day). Owner did not elect to have offered diagnostics performed (BW, MRI +/- CSF tap) to R/O structural/other disease ( Congenital vs. Inflammatory vs. Neoplasia vs. Idiopathic). Owner elected medical managment. Lucy received one dose of Valium and an intial dose of Keppra, while at the AMC. Lucy was discharged with Keppra, CLavamox, and Meloxicam (hx of chewing on paws during seizures). Lucy was presented to me toward the end of her second seizure after today’s admission. She was administered 0.62 cc Keppra (100 mg/ml) PO and Meloxicam 0.30 cc (1.5.mg/ml) PO at 12:20PM. Lucy’s postictal period was punctuated by a short seizure, when placed into a kennel; seizure activity ceased within 45 seconds and no further treatment was attempted. Lucy has had no seizure activity, since this last episode. New Hope is informed that ACC Medical would like to admnister diazepam, once the dog settles a bit, but advocates a rapid transfer to a private veterinarian for evaluation and management.
