Default Tsuki Road to Being Seizure Free

Tsuki started having seizures last week, so far five to date (April 1st, 4th, 6th, 9th, 11th). It wasn't until the second one that I figured that the episode she had on the 4th was one as well. Called the vet on the 5th, and they said to keep an eye on her, it could be a freak occurrence. After her third one, I called the vet on Monday and scheduled her for Thursday, which was then canceled, and rescheduled to this afternoon.

To my knowledge she hasn't gotten into anything, only possibility would have been something that the snow uncovered but chances of anything out there are slim, and none of the other dogs are sick either. All her seizures except for yesterdays have been the same, long drawn out behaviors prior and after of shaking and being disorientated. Yesterday's was quick, one moment she's curled up with Stryder and his crate and then full on falls over and full body stiffness. So at this point they're happening closer together and the whole process is a lot faster.

From what I've Googled, and help from friends (thanks Moth!) it sounds like epilepsy. Her age and breed fit; being from a puppymill doesn't stack the cards in her favor either. Baring that nothing else is going on, we'll probably have to medicate.

Most of the time she's sleeping, or hiding. She's only been herself twice this past week and a half, tackling Lincoln and running around the yard. I miss my dog. Vet appointment is at 3:15.
