Buddy seems to be OK this morning, he is just crying a lot,which is very hard on the ears, but we try and sooth him and talk to him just to calm him down. But he is ok today, I just hope there is not another siezure building up.

Poor baby. Has he got a favorite toy or something that he likes to chew on? Sometimes that will soothe them. Possibly give him a Kong stuffed with peanut butter to distract him and calm him down to make him feel more settled. It might even help to use the old trick of putting an old soft shirt that you've been wearing in his bed so the smell will reassure him.

Another thing to keep in mind is the quicker things return to normal, the better Buddy will feel. He's going to pick up on your emotional turmoil and that in itself is frightening for a dog or puppy. If you can make him feel that every day is just another normal (?) day, the trauma will subside quickly. And don't forget that Codi will be picking up on all the emotions and fears as well.

And don't forget that the little darlings are perfectly capable of figuring out how much attention they can get by sounding miserable. Once he figures out that you'll come to him whenever he cries he'll make the best of it. (lol)

How is Codi doing in the midst of all the turmoil?

Hey everyone! I am happy to report that Buddy is doing great, he has not has any siezure in more than 4 days, and his mediaction is doing him wonders. He s almost back to his old self, I was taking photos of him the other day, he hates photos, but he seems to be doing great. His brother still pushes him around but he is getting a little more clever and seems to give his brother a run for his money.

I am happy to say that he is not depressed anymore and is doing rather well!

The only news that could possibly be any better will be hearing that he's grown out of it someday!

Smile more help for Buddy

Iky, i've just been reading along this thread and all of Buddy's history. You've certainly been through a lot. Good to hear that he's been siezure free the last few days. I hope his progress continues.
I would like to tell you about a product called Nzymes. It comes in a treat form, and provides the body with live food enzymes that are completely missing from all processed food. These enzymes are anti-oxidant in nature, and are vital to the healing/repair process. With every siezure comes collateral damage to the system. Nzymes will help to undo that damage as well as supporting all the other vital functions of the body. There are 3 or 4 epilepsy dogs on their testimonials pages; some ceased having seizures altogether, others had less frequent, less severe episodes. In any case, it's worth giving a look at. Hope this may be of help.

You know, Iky, I'm ashamed of myself for not thinking of this sooner! Why don't you look into learning some pet massage techniques? The calming and healing capabilities could go a long way to helping Buddy's poor little abused muscles relax and heal and contribute to his emotional well-being, and it certainly can't do any harm. It wouldn't hurt Codi either, since it's probably upsetting to him when there's something wrong with his brother. And it will help you, too, knowing that you're able to do something proactive to help your Buddy.

I've fretted so much about the little guy that I almost feel like he's one of my babies, too! His photos are so beautiful; those huge, soft eyes and his "spectacles" markings are irresistable. And Codi looks like he's just full of himself. He's handsome and he knows it! Does he make it his mission in life to keep you busy and amused?
