5.5 kgs(12 pounds) neutered male 8 years old tabby cat.(was neutered at 7 months old)
He was diagnosesd with urinary tract infection 1 month ago, he used Prunol, and was fine after medication. 3 days later he had his first epileptic seizure.
1 month passed, now he has an epileptic seizure every 8 hours. We have the footage of the seizure and can send it if requested.

Symptoms also include:
– a lot of foamy saliva comes out of his mouth
– uncontrolled muscle movements and release of the bladder which leads to him running into a wall, turning and twisting, having trouble breathing.
– the seizure takes around 30 secounds.
– after the seizure he has a 5 to 10 minute calming period and then he starts eating and drinking a lot.

Veterinarian suggested Tegretol (includes Carbamazepine), and said we should give him 0.1 mililiters orally and also said even 1 dose can be lethal. What do you suggest?
