This is the Face of Epilepsy


Poor Campbell. Back in December, Amy and I came home from her company Christmas party to Cam laying in our bedroom having a seizure. We took him to the emergency clinic where they poked, prodded and ran tests only to have no answer. Simply giving the advice to wait and see. Well as of last night we don't have to wait anymore and I saw enough.

I came home from work to find our bedroom floor covered in urine and vomit with my poor furry baby laying in the middle of it all having a seizure. He went on to have 2 seizures when I was there and based on the look of the room he had many more before I had arrived. After taking him to emergency last night and to our regular vet this morning he has officially been diagnosed with epilepsy. He's been given a prescription that hopefully will limit the number of seizures he has from now on.


Ivy was none to pleased that Cam ruined her 6th birthday with all his drama.

Oh Ivy, the dog couldn't help it. Go easy on him. And little Cam, I hope the pills help you to feel better. My dog Sam, when I was growing up, had the same problem. It will be ok.

My friend's dog has the same thing and he's now 14! He's been living with it for 6 years now and since he's been on the medication, the seizures are a lot less. I hope Campbell feels better soon! It sounds like Ivy and our dog Aiden share the same birthday. He's 5 now! How old is Ivy?

What a scary experience! We've had some tough time with Gracie, our greyhound, and completely relate to how much they mean to you.

Hope things continue to improve.

That is the saddest thing I've heard all day. Poor, sweet guy. I'm glad to hear he's medicated. Hopefully all will be well with him.
Big hug.

Poor, poor sweetie. I hope the treatment helps. It's so hard to see them suffer and not be able to do anything to help.
