Re: Toy poodle age 5 had first seizure in January 2016

Hi everything, Thank you so much for your kind words and advice. She had another seizure today around 9pm but she snapped out of it pretty quickly (already trying to get up as I was drawing up her diazepam).

As we were about to leave, she h...
