I'm at the vet right now. It seems I had what appears to be a seizure last night. I am okay now as far as how I am acting and looking. Mom rushed me to the emergency clinic at 3 in the morning but by time I got there it was all over and I was up perky and all. They wanted to keep me for blood tests and observation but Mom didn't have the $1,000.00 they wanted. (Mom nearly cried on the way out afraid and also thinking how many mom's had to walk out with their dying baby because of no mercy there.) They said that truthfully she could bring me home and watch me herself and then take me to my regular vet this morning. That's where I am now.
Dr. Vicuna thinks it was probably a seizure and he began explaining it to Mom. He said that he's never seen a dog or heard of a human dying from a seizure. That they come then go. IF I have them often then he would put me on medication/phenobarbital but only if they came frequently. He said IF I have to go on that med it will be for lifetime. Impossible to take me off so he wants Mom to log any episodes from last night on with time and date.
He is checking for blood sugar and whatever else may be going on. I come home around 3 o'clock this afternoon. I don't have to stay. I am overweight again.. Mom really has to get on to everyone for feeding me. If I have probs with blood sugar my weight will trigger it bad.
I don't want anyone to worry too much. Mom already did enough hysteria to cover all Dogster. So far all is well and I am up and bright eyed and mad at Mom for leaving me at the vet..and not giving me my breakfast.
Love and Hugs George hoping all will pray for him.
