That broke the camel's back

the straw that is, the last one...

 Coco had four seizures on New Year's Eve, suck-o, here. Well, last night he had more. It's only been (roughly) two weeks since his last episode. He's been having seizures at least twice a month for a year now. My heart can't take much more, literally and metaphorically. It causes me so much pain to see him in that condition. It's truly awful. At first, we thought the seizures were from stress, but they happen without warning. He no longer gets viscious afterwards, but it's pitiful. He has very little muscle control when he comes out them and he pees on himself every time. He has them usually on the bed while we're sleeping, but when he has multiple seizures in one episode they are most likely on the floor. He runs into the walls and has what we call tremors for up to an hour after the first seizure. It's a big ordeal and I think it's time it's stopped.
  This last episode was pretty much the last straw. He had two last night, but that's enough, I'm done. We're going to look for a new vet on this side of town and most likely put him on medication. I hear it's expensive, but it will be worth it if he takes well to the medication and it works. Poor little dog.

Our cat has really bad seizures too. Our vet gave us Phenobarbetol for him. It has helped calm him down to where he has about two to three seizures a year, and it's not too terribly expensive.

Keep us updated on how it goes.
