Dont know if this would help or anything. When Tux first had his first seizure we noticed on top of his head he had a bone growing at a point. this had not been there when he was a pup. As we looked back at some of his old puppy pictures we noticed he had a perfect shapped head. But as he got older ...

We have removed him from any heartworm prevenative. We just dont trust it any more. We have him checked on a regular basis and where we leave for some reason we dont get many mosquitoes. But every time we go to the vet which is very often we have him checked. Now his sister we have her on intercepto...

It breaks our hearts to see him have to position himself just right ot be able to lift his rear half up off the floor and then our house is mostly all tile or Wood floors and when he gets to herding his sister around the house he slips and falls alot. Bu...

We instantly went right back to the extra one last night. But by no means did we have him off of it comp...

Well We write you all today with heavy hearts. Tux had 3 siezures again last night. He had barely been reduced of pb and no reduction in KBr yet. This really shocked us last night as he had been doing so well. This now leads us to think that Heartgard wasnt the issue. The siezure activity was the sa...

We will be starting him on Interceptor next week once we can get to the vet to pick it up. We also want to try this while he is still on pb and kbr. He has done exceptionally well with the lower dosage of pb already but we are going down on it ever so slow. 2 weeks now and he went from 2 pills twice...

www.busteralert.org is where I found the info on it. and with that site and the links on it found Washington State University to do the test for us. Simple test of just Scraping the inside of his cheek and mailing it back and $60. Worth it to me if it is it then we know and Tux will live happily eve...

50 DAYS:

Still no results on the DNA test but today is a milestone for Tux. 50 days with out a siezure and 1 hour worth of siezures in the last 69 days. We should be getting results back very soon though and the Vet has already started to take Tux off of Pb. almost 2 weeks now on the lower dosage.
