Hi,

I don't think you could substitute steroids for phenobarbital as steroids don't 
have a sedating effect, more of an anti-inflammatory effect. I know valium is 
sometimes prescribed in addition to phenobarbital for seizures. We were so 
fortunate to find a great veterinary neurologist for our cat. The first two 
vets we went to said to euthanize the cat but I refused to and I searched out 
the neurologist and he acted like the seizures weren't such a huge deal. I love 
him! 

Please let us know what you find out when you get the lab results. You may 
actually have a physically healthy cat that just needs time to recover from 
psychological distress. Prozac may be helpful to him.

Michele
