Default just out of interest

I went to the vet on Saturday morning, to go and pay the final account for Buddy's burial. Its taken a while to be able to go back there and finalise everything, thank heavens the vet is very understanding. The vet assistant started to cry the moment she saw me, it was wonderful that she cared to much for Buddy.

Anyway, she was telling me that they have a baby Cheetha at the Cheetha Park that also has epilepcy, and that this baby cheetha is exactlly like Buddy, and she is so happy that now her and the Vet knows how to handle the situation so much more better because they were there all the way with Buddy.

But yet, I still dont find many people who know of dogs with epilipcy, even though i have had 2 vets tell me that its a very comman thing with dogs.

Iky, it's so good to hear from you again!

That is odd, when you think about it. I've always read that epilepsy is becoming more and more common in dogs, but I've never met one face to face. That's a good thing; maybe it's not as common as we're led to believe.

How is Codi? Is he showing signs of being more like himself and moving through his grief?

Codi is doing much better, he is getting really big now, and i think has worked through most of his grief, every now and then you can see he looks for Buddy, but we keep him occupied and try to keep his mind busy. he is also starting to learn manners, and is getting very good by not going out the door without his leash. today we left the door open, and he sat at it and didnt move an inch, as soon as we put his leash on, he got up and walked out. i was so proud of him.

Hi Iky Im new to this site and a vet nurse in Australia we see a lot of dogs with epilepsy it is very common but easy to treat luckily enough, I can understand how the vets staff you saw felt, its very hard for us aswell when our patients die especially if they have been in hospital (you get attached to them as well)

hey chell78, firstly welcome to the site. Thanx a million for your post, i know that it can be treated, but we were just one of the unlucky ones that we couldnt control it, even though we tried a lot.

Thanx a million for the post!
