Well, mom took us to the vet yesterday for shots and heartworm medicine. We thought she was surprising us with a fun trip to somewhere.. but not the vet.
The vet lady said Waylon (my white headed, floppy eared brother - which my mom thinks is from another mother!) really should go on medicine for his seizures... he has 3 really big ones in the last 60 days.. and even a few mild ones (I thought he looked like a bobble head)
But I was told I needed to diet..humph!

The boys mom:
Waylon is going to start phenylbarbitol today... I did not want to do this but the seizures are becoming worse. Saturday morning we woke to him, in bed with us of course, seizing. We will see how it goes. Keep us in your thoughts. In other news, baby Lauren had her 2 month shots on Tuesday and weighed 13lbs 7 1/4 oz!

Hoepfully the medicine will stop the seizures and won't have any negative affects.

Wow lauren is really growing, that's wonderful. I bet they love their little sister.

That baby is really growing! She is such a pretty little thing.
Sorry you had to start Waylon on medicine. I'm sure it is only a matter of time until we take the same road with Rocky. Does he have any side effects from the drug?

I bet that medicine will help Waylon be happier, at least we sure do hope so. We are keeping our paws crossed!

Great news that their sister is happy and healthy too!

I hope the phenobarbital helps - there is another drug out there called potassium bromide that is an older drug. They stopped using it for a while when phenobarbital came out but are now finding that the side effects might not be as bad. You can use the two drugs together if one doesn't stop the seizures. Good luck and keep us updated.
