Re: R.I.P. Apache

Brian,

I am so sorry to hear about your beloved Apache. May he rest in peace. At least there won't be any more suffering. It is such a hard decision to let them go... Hang in there!

Re: Help requested

Hi, Did not give Keppra last night to Amber as she was really unwell. I know that sometimes they become groggy with the medication but she was not even able to stand and walk...she was not well.

Re: Hi from Amber

Hi Last night was really bad! After just two doses of Keppra Amber was so restless, knocking herself against the furniture and overall not well at all. This morning she has been sick.

Re: Help requested
