You want to put that valium where???

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.

I learned today that you can get a bottle of valium that they squirt up your butt to stop a seizure? Mom started laughing and said there's no way I'd allow that, unconscious or otherwise. I have to ask my friend, Jebbers about this. BOL. We didn't get the valium because it would likely expire by the next time I seize. That and Mommy is more likely to medicate herself or Daddy with it than me. BOL
