for my little Stella. She had three bad seizures on Saturday. We rushed her to the vets. So now we must begin to try to figure out what the cause is. The vets seems to think it's idiopathic epilepsy. Which basically means they have no idea what causes the seizures. Those who know me, know that that is a diagnosis I can't except. There is always a cause and I want to know what it is.
She had one back in April. A very mild one in June. Then on Saturday.
So now it's a matter of trying to rule things out. She'll have a bile acid test tomorrow to check her liver function. I can't imagine a dog under the age of 4 having liver damage. But then again, I feel the same way about seizures.
Our little Gracie has had seizures. There is something wrong.
Man, I am having such a difficult time dealing with this. Why are so many of our beloved pets having seizures? Or bad health problems for that matter. Growing up, I never heard of anyone's dog having such severe medical problems as they do now and they always lived to a very ripe old age.
So I ask all of you who follow this blog (and Stella's blog) to please keep her in your prayers. She is such a sweet precious little girl. Full of love and life.
Positive thoughts are also greatly appreciated, too.
