Okay, I picked up the new medication from the pharmacy but I am getting cold feet about starting them.
I was surprised that the highest per pill dose is 100mg... so to achieve his 350mg dose I will have to give four pills (3 100mg, 1 50mg) 2x a day on top of the Pheno he will need to take 2x a day until he is weaned off of that drug.
I think my trepidation about administering that many meds per day is mostly psychological... but, on top of that, I do think I will have to switch up my medication administration technique -which has been to insert the pill in a piece of hot dog. With one pill 2x a day, that made sense... but, with 5 pills 2x a day, I think that might be too much hot dog for the dog.
Need re-assurance that making the switch is the best path forward! My vet is for the switch, the neurologist believes that we would be fine sticking with Pheno... ughh!
