    I have an 11 y.o. male Norwegian elghund, Byron, who was diagnosed (C6 test) with Lyme about a month ago and put on doxycycline (1 month). It didn’t seem to help because he appeared to continue loosing weight and his blood showed low albumin and high BUN. Urines showed protein and creatinine elevations. We admitted him for 2 days for fluids and i.v. antibiotics (ampicillin and quinolones). He showed some improvement but still was not eating quite right and he’s lost a lot of weight. He’s drinking and peeing.

    He’s had several seizures over the past two days after having left the vet’s care. He ate some solid food yesterday but refuses food today except for some biscuits.

    I’m very concerned about his not eating and the weight loss…the seizures don’t help but I don’t want him becoming any weaker.

    Is there any apetite enhancer (he’s very difficult to force feed and it appears that he seizes when being pilled or fed!). Can we insist on i.v. aminos or albumin?

    He’s my friend and I really need to help him.

    Kind regards,

    Harold

    First, you need to find out why he is having seizures. I’d strongly advise a visit with a neurologist or internist to help get a diagnosis.
