Buffy
 
Well I think I am going to lose my mind!!:(

I still have not recovered from having just lost Toby 4 weeks ago to cancer and now this.
Buffy has been having seizures due to possible liver issues according to the blood work the vet did on her. She is on antibiotics for two weeks (gave her a shot for her first dose) and a recheck next week to see if the blood results are improved. So hoping that is the issue and it clears up. I'm walking on pins and needles watching her.......there are no visible warnings that she is going to have a seizure until she falls to the ground and then it's just laying with her and watching. Her last seizure she stopped breathing and I did compressions and she began breathing again.......but it was so scary. After a seizure she acts normal within 20 minutes like nothing happened but I'm a total wreck.

She is our smallest Maltese that we adopted when she was 4 1/2 years old because the previous owner was downsizing and was going to put her down. We immediately went to Miami to get her and she turned out to be such a spunky but loving little girl.:hearter:
She will turn 15 in February.

Carol, I'm so sorry that you are going thru this difficult time with Miss Buffy! She is such a sweet little gal. Having gone thru 12 years of seizures with Max was really tough, so I know how you feel. I pray she will be ok. Hugs to you.

Thank you, Cheryl. I didn't remember Max had seizures. ......what was the cause, did you ever know? Was he on medicine? It is a horrible thing to watch.

Max was 6 1/2 months old when his seizures started. The vet had us take him to the Univ. of Wisc.-Madison Veterinary Hospital for major tests. They kept him for 3 days and he had to be on meds for the rest of his life. I don't really remember the exact diagnosis they gave, but I worried every day about seizures.
He was a great little boy, my baby, and he had 12 great years.

She hasn't had a seizure since going to the vet and is still taking antibiotics. We go back to the vet on Thursday and she will have more blood work. Hopefully the blood work will help us determine if the liver and kidney are improved.

Finger crossed and good wishes from all of us.
