My dog was diagnosed with Epilepsy yesterday by the vet & given Phenobarbital to take. She's half cocker spaniel, half dodson. My concern is she hasn't urinated or taken a dump since 6 p.m. yesterday. I called the vet, they told me to wait 48 hours cause she could be dramatized from the vet visit.
I'm just very upset & concerned because this can't be normal! Have you ever been thru this with your dog? Please give me some hope! The vet said I'd be wasting my time & money to bring her in so soon but I'm so worried! Hubby & I thought maybe it was the medicine but I've read so many articles on it that says just the opposite, that she should have excessive urination, not completely stop! She's eating and drinking like normal. The medicine has made her act "drugged up" but I was told that would be normal till her system gets used to the meds.
