  1. Hi folks.

    I have a 1 year old pedigree boxer who has epilepsy. He has had several cluster fits and is taking epilim and diazipam (after he fits). On friday I accidentally gave him half of his epilim dose throughout the day. He isnt due to have a fit for about 10 days but im seeing the pre-fit symptoms allready (vacant expression, thirst etc etc).

    Has anybody had any experience of a missdosage of epilim either in humans or animals? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

  2. Sent you a pm with a number you might want to try
  3. Hi SMG.

    My inbox is empty, can you send it again please? Cheers.
  4. Sorry, bit too technical for me! You should have a pm now.
  5. Epilim is normally given prophylactically (ie. as a preventative measure) both in dogs and humans. Diazepam is given as a muscle relaxant during the seizure.

    What I would do mate, is to have a word with your vet. and in the meantime keep a close Mk one on the dog.

    Remember, your abc's apply to dogs aswell as humans.

    After a week of worrying about him he seems to be OK. I hadnt even considored CPR but the principals must be the same. How do you do effective compressions?
