Seizure in cats
In early August my 10 month old (at the time) Ragdoll had a seizure. He was laying down on a chair, then suddenly started running around very quickly, then dropped to one side and had full body convulsions. He bit the side of his mouth so there was a bit of blood, and urinated during the episode, it lasted about a minute and then he came about. We took him to the vet straight away, he had to stay over night and blood tests we're done.
The next morning he came back home and we recieved the results. There was nothing wrong with his resultst and physical exam came back all clean too. So he wasnt put on any medication.
Then roughly two months later, on 2nd of October, he had a second seizure. Again he was laying on the floor when suddenly he ran off very fast again, I had a very bad feeling so asked someone who lives with me to call the vet straight away, he again after running around fell on his side and had full body convulsions, with some saliva and urination again, this time the seizure only lasted about 30 seconds, once he came about we again took him to the vet.
His temperature was high and they kept him over night, he had Nuroclav administrated, blood tests were taken which again all came back clean, so we this time ordered a toxicology tests to be ran on his blood, and they came back clean too.
The vet allowed our kittie to come back home but for 3 days he had to take nuroclav in the morning and evenings.
the vet said its most likely primary epilepsy, and episodes need to be more frequent before we should start medication...
Only now I'm in pieces sometimes, I'm so worried, I keep checking on our kittie, and if im not at home I call home to see how he is going.
So many different sites out there for this subject but it is all so confusing.
Can my kittie have 2 seizures and never have one again? Will putting him on medication stop seizures completely? How often is too often for seizures to happen? What can I do to minimize the risk? I need so many answeres, or just hear from people who have had similar if not the same issue. We love our boy, and its so painfull to see him like that, and we're so worried, just praying it wont happen again.
The doctors said he is a very healthy cat, and what we feed him is great and he is well looked after, he does not go outside and we have no plants in the house.
