Everything Greyhound > Greyhound Health and Nutrition > Belle getting a blood test Thursday

Posted by: Beryl May 11 2008, 06:43 PM
Belle will be getting her first blood test to measure the phenobarbital in her system Thursday. It has to be drawn 6 hours after her last dose. We hope that they have found the correct dosage for her. Fingers crossed that they have and she has not had a seizure since April 15

Talked to a gal on GT and she seems like a pro on seizures and gave me a lot of information. The initial Blood test was to get a base line and this one will be to see how the pheno is effecting her liver. She also told me to get copies of these reports incase heaven forbid she has to go to the ER and I will have that info

That is a very good idea.

She has posted quite a bit of information on seizures and has written a greyt article that I did not know she wrote

I'll be thinking about Belle, and hope all goes well. I think I know who you're talking about on GT, and they are a wealth of information on the subject.
