|Bea began having seizures near the end of her life. She was 18.5 years old, hyperthyroid and took methimazole for it. She also had IBD and allergies that she was taking prednisolone, famotidine and metronidazole for, and she'd been newly diagnosed with congestive heart failure and had begun taking furosemide.
The vet never did determine the exact cause of her seizures. She suspected that she may have had a stroke as a result of the CHF, but I suppose it could also have been a side effect of one of the medications. In the meantime, though, she'd become extremely weak and stopped eating and we made the decision to let her go.
I know that isn't very helpful, but I did want to say that you're not alone.
Sending purrs for you, sweet Spooky Boo! Please keep us posted!
