Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.
Hello Elaine, I am going to be quite blunt with you I am afraid ...
When a dog has fits from a young age then it is often the inherited form of epilepsy and it can usually be controlled with drugs ...
Where fits happen in older dogs like yours then a brain problem such as a tumour is a real possibility
some of these dogs just get worse and worse despite drugs etc
The blood tests may reveal a cause sometimes but with strokes and brain tumours etc. this may not be the case
Often such diagnosis is suspected where the dog is getting slowly worse despite drugs
I wish I could suggest something but there is little you can do on a home remedy basis, all you can do is to keep working with your vet on this one ...
I wish I could offer more ...

hi scott i took ozzy back to our vet we had a appointment for him to be checked over and get the blood result, but ontaking him there he had more fits, so i made the heart wrenching dission to have ozzy put to sleep feel very upset and guilty at the moment
