We just got back from seeing the vet. I love her - she's the greatest! Anyways, she says it sounds like I might be developing petit mal seizures. Usually dogs develop them between ages 1 and 3, and I'm 5, but she says I'm still young enough to be developing epilepsy. The vet said that my seizures seem relatively mild and that since I've only had two known ones within 3 months, that I don't have to worry about taking medications. Mom is going to keep a journal of when I am possibly having a seizure and if it gets to where I'm having more than one a month, we'll talk meds. She says right now the long-term side effects from the medications wouldn't be worth it. Mom agrees, so she and daddy will just keep an eye on me when I have one and as long as I wake up in under 10 minutes, then I don't have to go to a vet.
