Abner Gundy Savage

As you guys know Abner has been with us since the beginning of December! We love him dearly and he has already bonded with his “brothers & sisters” but since we got him he seems to be plagued with health issues…. we had his dental work done ( teeth pulled & surgery on impacted molars) then the intestine problems came, prolly due to the ‘god knows what’ he has been eating during his life and then switching over to actual dog food. Then the first seizure happeneddd and another trip to the ER and still no answers on what may be causing all this. So we have been watching him carefully when two nights ago Abner had another seizure and it was awful, just hard to watch . SO today I dropped Abby off at the vet for the day to hopefully find some answers for 2 reasons :
1. How can we treat this and what should we do to improve his life
2. We can’t keep dropping $200 a visit every other week!
Soooooooooooo…… I got off the phone with our vet about an hour ago and it seems that Abby has Canine Epilepsy. We will treat it with medicine and close monitoring for now and see how things go. We/I am not sure what caused this but I will tell you that now more than ever I believe God sent Abner to our care. So this way he can live the latter half of his life with love and care, I couldn’t imagine him battling this all alone in a cage in some shelter!
Keep Abner in your prayers that he is strong and happy! Thanks!
