I'm so worried about my dog that I'm nauseous. The vet was useless, I am going to call first thing in the morning and try to talk to someone else.

He's not allowed on the couch normally, but he benefits from my nervousness today.

Well I was so mad this morning that I did my own research and found that the vet, after a first seizure, should do an exam and blood work. I called and asked why that wasn't even offered and they didn't have an answer. When I asked which doctor was the one who the receptionist spoke with, it was the one who mishandled my very first appt with Frankie. I made an appt for 5:15 with a new vet's office.

Frankie's blood work came back normal, which is a relief, but not at the same time. The new doctor was pretty straightforward, he wouldn't jump to meds unless there were upwards to 5 seizures in a month, and if he has a 2nd one we can do further investigating as to a cause.

@shortcake give poor pupper lots of loving and comfort from us. Hope it works out well!

@shortcake best of luck with the new vet! And well done - you're a good dog parent.

@shortcake Even though there is still some unanswered questions, I'm glad Frankie is stable again. ❤️

@shortcake thanks for the update. Sounds like new vet is more engaged, to say the least!
