We rescued Roslyn from the shelter and immediately had three tumors removed from her body, now she is having seizures and needs your help!
Roslyn came into our group last Saturday from a shelter. On Tuesday, she had 3 mass cell tumors removed, located on different parts of her body. The vet prescribed her Tramadol, to help with her pain from surgery. Well, her Foster mom was driving home yesterday with Roslyn, and she had a seizure in the car. While tethered. So she had to make an emergency stop to un-tether her so she could breathe and help her through the seizure. Got her recovered, home & settled and than she had ANOTHER seizure. Got her through that one, and the Foster mom texted 1 of the doctors from Heritage Vet and got some Valium into her. Roslyn had another seizure at 3:30 am last night, was given more Valium per doctors orders and rested comfortable until this morning. She was taken into Heritage Vet this morning to watch for more seizures. She had two more grand mal seizures today. She was hooked up to IV fluids for the day.
The doctor is thinking one of her pain medications from surgery is causing the seizures (Tramadol) as it can lower the seizure threshold (meaning, the dog is more susceptible to having seizures). So Tramadol is being discontinued and we are switching to a different pain med. Hopefully this stops the seizures and she doesn't have to go onto anti-convulsants! Roslyn has gone home with her Foster mom for the night. She has been given a dose of Keppra, which is used to counteract seizures. And than tomorrow they will try to flush out her system in hopes of ridding her system of any remaining Tramadol
This sweet, precious girl needs a lot of prayers right now. She is about 7 years old. Please keep her in your thoughts, and please donate to help with her medical needs.
