Bad news is never good.
I’m crying because my dog keeps having seizures
I love him so much
He’s 10 years old and we’ve had him since he was three months old
He’s my only “sibling” and my favorite companion
He gives the best cuddles
He’s the sweetest and the most loving creature I’ve ever seen
And I can’t bare to see him have all these seizures, he’s changed so so so drastically.
He was diagnosed with epilepsy three weeks after my spring vacation, when he started having seizures.
He’s had about ten seizures that we know of, since April 30th (I’m saying “that we know of” because who knows if he’s had one when we weren’t home?). It’s so difficult. When he has seizures, he falls over on his side, bangs his head repetitively, paddles his paws extremely hard (it’s really bad when he’s in the hallway bc it’s narrow and he paddles against the wood trimming of the wall), and releases his bowels. And it’s very very very scary. He’s a 75 lb dog. So it’s very difficult to help him because of his size. But I love him. I can’t bare to see him suffer. He has always had anxiety, and the seizures really don’t help at all.
He’s my baby
He’s my love
And I hate seeing him suffer.
We started medicine in the middle of May, and they seem to help a little bit, but not much. His seizures are way less intense and less frequent. The only downside is that he has to take the pills at the same time in the morning and at night, and if he doesn’t, he could have the possibility of a very bad seizure.
I love him to bits
He’s the love of my life
He’s the best.
