Default My sons cat has had seizures

My sons cat splodge who is only around 2 years old has had 2 seizures in a few days, he had eaten some Easter Lilly which is highly toxic to cats fortunately blood test showed no kidney damage, so he's very lucky, unfortunately though once brain is damaged he will most likely have more seizures, my son and his girlfriend are so upset, I know there have been some threads regarding cat and dog owners who suffer with seizures x

Oh no, that's very upsetting for them. I did know about lilies and cats don't mix well, I do hope he recovers fingers and everything else crossed

My dog has seizures, she ate slug pellets when she was a year old but the seizures didn't become an issue until she was about 10

They can be controlled by meds, but that is expensive and can damage organs over time

Poor Splodge.
Thank goodness he didn't have any kidney damage. Hopefully he'll be lucky and won't experience many seizures in the future.

Thankyou everyone, we hope he doesn't keep having them but chances are he will now

Merlin I remember the thread now, buzz ate slug pellets and now has seizures, same damage for splodge, they have got to keep him seperate from their other cat for the time being while he is on medication, they need to check if he is weezing and pooing ok,

he ate a little steamed fished today so that's a good thing x

When Buzz was young and had very bad memory problems I fed her cod liver oil, and that really helped with her memory, I think it helped repair the brain a bit.
Not sure if it will help with seizures but you never know

Worth a try merlin, do you still give buzz cod liver oil? How often does she have seizures? X

One of my dogs had grand mal seizures... Very scarey at first but it does become a part of life... I do recommend sticking with anti seizure meds to control them they can and will still have the odd seizure whilst on them but they won't be so regular or as bad. Unfortunately for my dog it wasn't to be as he had a brain tumour and he had to be pts... But the drugs gave him more comfortable time than he would have had without them.

Poor Splodge, my dog has seizures too. As Kelly says, it's frightening to start, but it does get more normal and easier to deal with x

Oh Stells that's awful, im so sorry to hear that, that must have been very heartbreaking for you

if splodge has another seizure they are to take him back to vets for further tests, his bloods showed a very high temperature and no toxicity, if his kidneys were damaged by the lilly he nibbled on the vet said he would have been dead by now so we are hoping its not something else as well x
