Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! Thanks for writing into JustAnswer. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian with 20 years of experience. I will do my best to answer all your questions today. I am sorry to hear that your kitty is having to deal with so many issues. I do need some additional information, though, to see if I can better assess your situation. It may take me a few minutes to respond back, so please be patient.
How is her appetite?
Thanks for the information. The problem is that you cannot really manage seizures at home without some sort of medication. If they are actively having a seizure, we will give injectable diazepam intravenously. Many vets will send home a syringe of it to give rectally if they notice a seizure at home. Was she started on insulin yet?
I see. Thanks for the information. The only thing you can do if she seizes is to make sure she doesn't hit her head on something or fall off a higher area. That is assuming she is having full grand mal seizures with convulsions. If she is just having the issue with head bobbing, it may not be as major of an issue. I would just keep her confined as much as possible. There isn't anything you can give her at home to stop a seizure. If she was on insulin, it could mean her blood sugar is too low. In that case, rubbing Karo syrup or honey on her gums can help, but it won't do much unless it is due to low blood sugar.
You are very welcome! Do you have any other questions about this or need further clarification about anything?
