Husky Seizures

eutectic64 posted:
I have a 3 year old female (spayed) Husky. She has been on Phenobarb 2 times a day since April.
Seizure still occur about once a month. Last 3 days seizures have returned about every 6-12 hrs. In 72 hrs 5 seizures. Gave rectal Valium during each seizure.
Called vet yesterday. Blood work says Pheno levels are good. Was told to monitor and continue meds and log seizures.
Seizures only last about 30 seconds and she recovers quickly.
Any suggestions?
