Guest DeweytheGreyt Posted August 8, 2008 Share Posted August 8, 2008 I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with Complex Focal Seizures or "fly biting". I had posted a few weeks ago about Fallon's strange behavior. At that time my vet had suggested a change of food to grain free with a "unique protien" source such as venison, buffalo, kangaroo, etc. He had a terrible skin infection when we adopted him that took almost a year to clear up. Skin Thread Her thinking is that he is ultra sensitve to food as nothing else has changed in our home. He has been on Natural Balance's Venison and Sweet Potato for a little over 4 weeks now along with getting a benadryl twice a day. At first, his "fits" drastically cut down. But now it is worse than ever. When this all first started, he could be redirected by calling his name or snapping. Now, short of picking him up and moving him, he won't stop for anything. These "fits" can last anywhere to a few seconds to an hour or longer. At our vet's recommendation our next step is for a liver ultrasound to see if he possibly has a shunt. This could be the cause of his problem if his liver isn't cleaning his blood well enough. At this time, all of his blood levels are normal. If that shows nothing, our next step is an MRI to rule out a brain tumor or epilepsy. I don't need to tell you how costly that is going to be. I want to help my boy, this is consuming his life. So if anyone has had any experience with this or advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
