Just got back from the vet. My dog Star is fine. She's not eating like I expected because its a breed thing. She's not happy with the hard food so he says soft is more natural. She chews bones so he wasn't worried. As for the fit she had, he says some dogs have them. The medication (as I have experience) can be harder on the dogs body than the occasional fit. As long as it doesn't stop them enjoying life. For now I am to keep a log of when I see it happening so they know how frequently it happens.

She was fantastic in her capacity as a Mobility Assistance Dog in Training. I wish I had film of her. She was so relaxed and on the job. I broke one of their chairs and she stood and supported me till help could arrive. She didn't solicit attention even from the vet. There were lots of excited dogs and one that growled at her. She just ignored them. She also paused before a step down in the office on a few occasions to show me it was there. She was very alert looking for cars too. I'm really proud of her.

The vet gave her vitamins and we're going back next Thursday for some jags. Got the PDSA form and I filled it out. Maybe tomorrow we can drop it in.

As this might be a one time only fit the vet said she was still able to work with me. :)
