Hepatic Encephalopathy - dog health experiences

My mini-dachshund developed hepatic encephalopathy after a course of Rimadyl. The vet did not link the symptoms with the high liver enzymes noted from the blood tests. I stopped the rimadyl myself after I saw my dog suffering from digestive problems. She recovered after a specialized diet. The damage was done. Be very careful when your vet recommends a drug that has liver side-effects.

My dog Bear is a 7 month old chocolate lab. He has been showing some unusual behaviors. He walks around the kitchen pushing his head against the cabinets. He seems disorientated and looks as though he has lost his sense of sight. He drools a lot and cannot pick up his food with his month, his mouth hangs open. He has been experiencing this condition almost every other week, after he has rested he seems perfectly fine. We have taken him to two different vets they gave him pain medication and prednizone, but do not know what is wrong with him. We changed his dog food but that has not helped. I have been reading about dogs who get too much protein in their liver and may suffer from Hepatic Encephalopathy, not sure. Tomorrow we take Bear back to the vet for blood tests. His suffering has been unbearable and we may have to put him to sleep. My heart is breaking, I wish someone would have an answer for me. annpbrad@paulbunyan.net

I have a 10-month old fox terrier and I feed her a can of high protein mighty dog food mixed with her dry puppy food and withen 5-minutes my dog went in seizers. I called my vet and told her what happened after she ate and she said puppys cant handle high protein and the food caused a (Encephalopathy) seizer on the brain. Its been 6-hours and I have to wait 24-hours for the food to pass thru. My vet said feed puppys (puppy food only).

Our sheltie Fred first started with the strange behavior of licking his lips a lot and having a glassy-eyed look (which I think is referred to as stupor). I thought that perhaps he had had a small stroke. He seemed to develop gait and balance problems off and on for a few days, then I awoke to him twitching and jerking at my feet. We brought him to the vet who suggested anti-inflammatory for arthritis. He had perked up quite a bit and didn't show hardly any symptoms. The rest of the day and most of the following day was better with some intermittent symptoms as described above, but last night was horrible. He had seizures, a lot more drooling, stupor, and would press his head against a corner (I have since read about all these signs on the internet). We took him to another vet (he was unresponsive to us all night and morning) who said that she felt a liver mass and couldn't offer us much hope for improvement. We had him put to sleep and my heart is so heavy with missing him now. He gave us 12 wonderful years of his loving, adorable personality.

my six yr old border collie has started showing signs of minimal shaking, along with lack of focus in her eyes. she shows ery little appetitie. She has always been crazy over a frisbie, but now won't even go after it. She will follow basic commands. her breathing has become a havey pant. The vet treated her for urinary tract infection but that didn't work. She is know on Primidone once a day 60days.
She now shows signs of lack of bladder control. What should we do next?
