Well we had a scary weekend and it started on Friday evening. I got home from work Friday evening and was going to head to Hendricks to pick up Trevor (mom had the day off and picked up Trevor early from daycare) and Jon was working on their garage but I stopped at home first to change clothes and let Mydland out. I was putting some clothes in the car and was going to put him in his kennel and noticed he was acting weird and then he starting freaking out like he could not walk. It got so bad he laid down and could not get up. I called my friend Marty and told her to come over right away because something was wrong with Mydland. We hauled him to the vet and found out he had a seizure. From the time I got home and when I left the vet he had 6 of them which was considered a cluster. They kept him over night to observe him and run tests and during that evening he had 2 more. The doctor is pretty sure he has epilepsy. He was able to come home Saturday afternoon and has not had a seizure since Friday night. He is on medication and will be for the rest of his life. Seizures will come and go the vet said, it may not happen for days or months and may not happen again. We get the test results back on Tuesday and I will share what he is diagnosed with.

Sad and scary! Good thing you were there when he had the seizures.

Is Mydland a lab? The reason I ask is because Marlei has had them too!

Amber said...

Yeah he is a yellow lab and it 4.5 years old.

Thanks for visiting Healy Happenings and come back soon!
