Valium Is Our Best Friend Today

A little after 10 pm, Henry started up with the panting again. I knew what was coming. Next would have been crying, and them trembling, and then BOOM, another Grand-Mal. I'm not taking any chances. I gave Henry one dose of rectal Valium at 10:30pm. I was going to dose him per vet's instructions within 30 minutes if pre-seizure behavior did not stop. About 10 minutes after administering the rectal Valium, the panting stopped. Thank goodness for Valium!

I think I may have to keep him drugged up on Valium until his regular meds begin to take effect. Hopefully within 3 days the Phenobarbital will be kicking in.
