@megz06:  Aww..he is ADORABLE!! I just wanna snuggle him.

 I’m sorry you are going through this. HUGS to you and your lil baby. I’ll bet that with the right medicine you and your Cutie will have many years together! sending prayers and love back your way!! I’ve learned a few things lately from a wonderful vet bee, she said that all dogs are unique and may or may not do what’s expected of them. Your baby may very well take to this medicine and live a long happy life with you! keep your faith alive and think positive thoughts:) I’ll keep you both in mine.

Sorry you are going through this, but am glad he is feeling better on the meds.  He is lucky to have you as an owner who is willing to work with his health issues.  Not sure where you live, but have you considered going to see a veterinary neurologist?  He is so young to be having seizures, they may be able to find out why (ie congenital malformation) and perhaps add additional therapies to help him.

I’m sorry that you’re dealing with this. My parents have a dog that suffers from seizures, but she is also on medication. The vets also told her that she might only have another year or so to live, but it’s been 4 years and she’s still fine 🙂 

That puppy looks like he was made for snuggles.

I have to admit.. I cried reading your updates! You got your adorable lil guy around the same time that I got my sweet girl gs/ mastiff mix.  I can’t even imagin what you are going through but I am so glad that you didn’t just give him back only to be put down. I will keep you all in my prayers.

First of all, he is adorable! What a heartbreaking discovery..our fur babies are so defenseless it kills me to see anthing happen!

Now, I didn’t see the other updates just this and am kind of shocked that the vet only gave him 1-2 years just for epilepsy? Maybe I missed something else that they found with your pup but I have never heard a deadline and my sisters Yorkie is severely epileptic. It started when he was a puppy and he was prescribEd the same meds as your puppy..well long story short..he’s 8 years old now and it’s basically Nico’s world and we’e all just living in it! 

My sister actually only by gave him the phenobarbital for about a year or just under but then took him off as she saw an improvement in the seizures and quite frankly the meds made him a zombie..


anyway I hope this gives you some hope, hun! Maybe he will just grow out of it! Just hold him when he seizes and think positively about his recovery!
