Mitzie has been experiencing seizures for a few months now.
The first started back in October and while we took her to the Emergency Hospital
nothing was resolved that night. We waited to see if she just had a one time bout.
The seizure monster returned again! Then again. a few weeks ago.
Last week we visited our regular vet where Astro and Cinnamon have gone.
After watching a short video I had made during her last seizure, and an exam
the doctor determined. She has epilepsy. We have her on 2 doses of phenobarbital
a day. We go back in 2 weeks for a full blood work up.
I hate giving her medicine it makes her a zombie. If you knew her you would
call her wild as she never sits still. We tribute it to her being part Border Collie mix.
If I go from room to room in the house she goes or follows Jeff everywhere.
She loves to go for a ride in the truck and barks at everyone.
she is very active chasing Astro around the year and house.
But when we go to bed she goes too and stays in bed all night.
With the meds now she sleeps all day and only gets excited when Jeff comes home.
or if she hears car keys, door bell, or wants outside.
We are going to do everything to make her life comfortable.
Our dr said this is something we can control.
