Re: Our worst nightmare

Thank you for your kind words. Chop is doing much better today, he's being his normal self. The breeder wants nothing to do with this situation, changes the subject and tells us that no other litter mates have seizures.

Re: 8 seizures in 8 hrs

My Lola was having 6-10 seizures within 2-3 hours time, kbrovet has really helped cut the clusters down. It's potassium bromide and we've added it to her keppra and phenobarbital. I hope your baby is doing better

Anesthesia and seizures

I'm trying to find a vet to spay Lola, no one wants to touch her because of her seizures🙄. My question is, is it safe to put Lola under general anesthesia when she is epileptic. Has anyone spayed or neutered their epileptic dog and it been just fine no issues? Any advice is appreciated!!!! If you...

Cannabis oil

I know this is extreme but has anyone had luck with this? Most of you have followed Lola and our painful journey. I'm at the end of my rope. She's not even 2 yet, is there a chance she could grow out of it

Re: Worst cluster yet

Lola is going to be spayed 2 weeks after she weens the puppies. Puppies will all be spayed or neutered once they are of age. This litter was an accident and I don't want to put Lola through the stress she's been through so much. She is doing great though but my husband are up every 2 hours to bring ...
