Well, there he is, out for a walk in the woods with owner-boy (me). Dawn's been bugging me for an update on Shadow's health situation since the last time I mentioned him.
So, how's his health? Just fine, thank you very much. He has not had another seizure, and the vet could find no underlying reason for him to have had the first one. As these things go, he might never have another one. Or, another one could be right around the corner. There's no way of knowing.
Although there is medication available, they hesitate to use it unless the seizures are severe and frequent. For one thing, the medications are sedatives, so the dog becomes lethargic, dopey, and clumsy. For another, there are risks of long term liver and kidney damage, which could dramatically shorten the lifespan of an animal.
At this point we are simply hoping it was an isolated incident, and never reccurs. I mean, what else can we do?
