What owners of epileptic Pharaoh Hounds have to say:

  • "I have a one year old pharaoh who suffers from head shaking seizures. My pharaoh was diagnosed on March 15th 2010 and has medication now. Phenobarbital 60mg / 2 tablets per day....The dog is awfully restless and roams around our home.."
  • "As the head wobbling went into the second minute, I knew she was having another seizure, so I felt for her head to comfort her...it looks like her seizures are lasting longer. I tried to look back at her behavior earlier that evening to see if I could find anything that pointed to seizure symptoms. The only thing that stands out in my mind is that she was pretty insistent on going out repeatedly. She was up several times throughout the night.."
