Rebecca Fillmore Mueller asks: I have a sweet girl doxie, Sadie, who is 5 and a puppy mill rescue we adopted the first of March. She has seizures and is on medication. I have been sure to give her the meds regularly and never missed a dose. Since the first of April her seizures have become more frequent, and after midnight last night she had 2 and another this evening. (previously there had been weeks in between seizures)
I haven’t changed anything as far as her food or environment…. The foster mom who had cared for her the 4-5 months before we adopted her said she’d only had 1 or 2 seizures during the past 3 months or so after the vet had increased her meds. We are going to visit our vet again tomorrow (she saw him the first of April and was given a clean bill of health and they left the meds the same). If any of your fans have any suggestions of what might be causing this, or suggestions to ask the Dr. I would appreciate their feedback. The seizures she has had overnight and today have been the worst I’ve seen her have. Thanks. I am just worried about my baby.
