Update on Rocky
Thanks to everyone for your well wishes and advice. I really appreciate your in put. Rocky's seizures started in May of this year. There was no apparent reason or underlying factor so the vet just diagnosed it as canine epilepsy. He took bloodwork this morning and will have a report for me on Monday. He did not want to up the dosage just yet. He did say that if Rocky ever had a seizure he didn't want to come out of that I should get him out there right away for an injection of Valium. He said that would pull him out of it. He also said we could try other medications if we couldn't get the phenobarbitol to do the trick. He said Rocky could expect to live a long and happy life if we just get the seizures under control. I will wait and see what the tests indicate and I guess take it from there.
