Re: Flash

We received Flash's blood results back from taking Potassium Bromicide for two months now. On a scale of 1 to 3, his level was 1.3. Which is good. Since he has been seizure free since the beginning of March, the medicine seems to be working. We will see in a few weeks as he seems to have the seizure...

I thought Lightening bit him somehow under the fence panel wall that they share (they each have their own ...
