Have a great swiss mtn dog less than 3m having mult seizures per day spinal tap shows no abnormalities. ideas?


I have a great swiss mountain dog less than 3 months old, he is having multiple seizures per day for about a week. A spinal tap was recommended done and spinal fluid showed no abnormalities. As of right now the doctors and I have no idea what are causing the seizures. Any ideas?
----------

It could be just plain old epilepsy. Even in people, sometimes a cause isn't found.

Good luck.  (+ info)

Do obgyns frown upon prescribing fertility drugs because of the complications associated with multiple births?


I'm almost 30 and planning on getting married soon. I always dreamed of having a few kids and settling down but (clearly) I'm starting off a little late.

Here's the thing, I know I'm perfectly healthy and capable of conceiving a child but I think it'll be great to just have 2 or 3 kids at once and kinna get it over with so I won't have to be pregnant over and over again. I've been reading up on the greater risks associated with multiple births (low birth weight, death, abnormalities, reducing the number of feotuses etc) and I'm worried my obgyn will think I'm being irresponsible and just not want to do it anyway.

Anyone ever asked this of a doctor? Online they suggest names of appropriate drugs but I wouldn't want to take them without a doctor's supervision anyway.
----------

Unless you have fertility issues they probably will not prescribe fertility drugs. I don't understand for the life of me why you'd want to have 3 babies at once! Yikes. You're only 30. Try having 1 pregnancy and baby and THEN see how you feel. I bet you'll be perfectly happy with the idea of two. But, if you choose that you do indeed want 3... you still have time if you have them relatively close together. Or you could adopt to create your big family.  (+ info)

What are the risk of high abnormalities and pregnancy?


Im 19 and i hav a pap smear done a couple months ago which came back posible high abnormalities. Im booked for a calapsy in august.
I was wondering what are the risk of having high abnormalities during pregancy.
----------

There will be no risk if you go and get this problem sorted out. You shouldn't be thinking about pregnancy at 19 though. I can't imagine why if your pap came back normal it took them a few months to book you for a colposcopy. They booked mine with in a few days. they went in, did their biopsies and stuff and nothing was wrong. I've had 3 children with no abnormalities.  (+ info)

What are the odds to having a down syndrome baby with 2 ultrasound abnormalities?


I went in for my ultrasound at 19 wks and found out the baby has echoing in the heart ventricles and a cyst at base of brain. Individually, they would not be concerned, but because 2 abnormalities are present I need to go in for a level 2 ultrasound. What are my odds for having a down syndrome baby at 30 with these abnormalities being present?
----------

I am 34 and had 2 abnormalities on my son's ultrasound. He had an echogenci foci (white spot on the heart) and a dilated kidney. He is a perfect 3 month old. 2 abnormalities is not unusual at all. Try not to worry. I know that's hard because I've been there.  (+ info)

want to understand the link between chromosomal abnormalities in parents and recurrent miscarriages?


I learn that one of the reasons for recurrent miscarriage of a pregnancy is the chromsomal abnormalities found in atleast one parent. I have the following questions:
1. Does this problem always result in a miscarriage or are there chances of delivering a live baby ?
2. If it results in a child-birth, are there chances of the baby born with abnormalities ?
3. Is this problem curable/treatable ?
----------

1. The problem does not always end in a miscarriage. Most chrom abnormalities that result in a miscarriage happen before 6 weeks of pregnancy.

2. 1 out of 150 babies is born with a chromosomal abnormality. These types of abnormalities occur when the structure of a chromosome is damaged or the number of chromosomes is off (extra or too few).

3. Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Patau's syndrome (trisomy 13), and Edward's syndrome (trisomy 18) are common chromosomal abnormalites. Prenatal testing, like amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling, can be done before the birth and I have heard that they can now go in and remove the extra chromosomes or fix them which would fix the abnormality but most of them are non-curable and non-treatable.  (+ info)

I've been searching on search engines for a few hours, so if anyone know some off of the top of their head...it would be greatly appreciated!

There are so many brain abnormalities and causes - both injury and birth defects.

Try googling neuropsychology or neurological disorders.  (+ info)

What is the largest multiple birth on record?


A few questions - the largest multiple birth on record of SURVIVING infants?

The largest multiple birth (but not necessarily surviving) on record?

And the largest number of identicals? Quints, I think, but I'm not sure if there's been any more.
----------

The largest set in which all members survived more than a few days is septuplets, the first of which was in 1997. There have been a few sets of nonuplets (nine) in which a few babies were born alive, and there have been pregnancies — but no known instances of live births — of decaplets (ten), undecaplets (eleven), duodecaplets (twelve), and quindecaplets (fifteen).  (+ info)

How safe is it to have multiple cesareans?


I am a mother of three; I babygirl in in heaven now being the angel that I always knew she was. Now, I only have my two boys with me. I had been thinking about having another child but, after I had my daughter, I felt my family was complete and I got my tubes tied at the age of 22. Now I long to have another child. I have already had 3 c-sections and I have a condition called endometriosis which can cause infertility. I want the reversal surgery so I can be able to have more children and then there is the risk of chancing another c-section. If anybody out there has any experiences like the one I'm longing to experience please let me know. I've read that a vaginal birth can be tried after multiple c-sections but, alot of risks go along with that. I need info on reversal surgeries and having multiple c-sections please! Thank you all in advance!
----------

I myself have never had a C-section but an aquaintance of mine has 8 children ranging in age from 20- 2 and has had C-sections for all of her children. My best friend's mother had 7 children and had 7 C-sections. My best friend has had 3 C-sections. I have heard that once you have one that sometimes it is better to continue to have them. But after having the 3 C-sections my friend gave birth to two other children vaginally. It must be safe because they are all healthy and recovered nicely after each one.  (+ info)
