Re: Need Help

All of her Blood work comes back normal. I live in Canada so right now there is no weed killer as we are covered in snow. She is not on any heartworm or flea treatments. All the seizures/episodes are exactly the same. It's so on schedule adn i am not sure what that means. No triggers.
